1965 Plymouth HEMI Lightweight
The Dodge & Plymouth A-990 cars were the end result of a change in drag
rules mandated by the NHRA and the continuing special high performance
program at Chrysler to keep pace with both the rules and the
Following the end of the 1964 season NHRA (National Hot Rod Association)
banned the use of aluminum and/or fiberglass body components on both stock
and super stock cars.
The older aluminum & fiberglass-bodied cars would still be eligible to run
in stock classes if they had met the minimum production numbers.
The A-990 Mopars would meet these new rules head on and the interior was
also lightened as much as possible.
The initial run of A-990's came out of the modification center weighing 500
pounds less than the standard super stock car of 1964 and 250 pounds less
than the NHRA requirement.
Now the factory had to add some weight back so they added a steel gas tank
shield, a re-enforced roll bar and standard steel bumpers and deck
lids...and the cars weighed in right on the money!
These cars were so fast that these A-990's were virtually unbeatable for
several years to come and for the first two years...1965 and 1966...they
were the ONLY cars in the class at all.....
ET's in the high 10 second range were commonplace with these cars.
