This Is a New Dodge Hellcat Made to Look Like a 1969 Charger

This Is a New Dodge Hellcat Made to Look Like a 1969 Charger Legendary DJ Funkmaster Flex comissioned this build, which makes its debut today at SEMA. What happens when you don't think a new Dodge Challenger is quite retro enough? You get someone to stick the body of an old muscle car on top. Legendary DJ Funkmaster Flex got New York City shop Valanca Auto Concepts to do exactly that, and the company made him a new Challenger Hellcat with bodywork that apes a 1969 Charger. So underneath the old-school-looking Charger body, which features a number of custom carbon-fiber components, it's all modern Hellcat.

Existing deep in the shadow of the Bronco and the Blazer even since new, the Ramcharger gets passed over for big-money builds and restorations We’d start our Mopar 4×4 collection with this 1985 Dodge Ramcharger Prospector that’s crossing the block at Barrett-Jackson’s 2019 Scottsdale auction.

You've probably noticed an increasing number of stories on classic trucks here at Automobile, and it's not just the case on our site—vintage 4x4s are hot stuff right now. As we've noted repeatedly, classic trucks, SUVs, and off-roaders are the next big thing in the collector market, but there's still time to ride the wave in terms of certain models.

It's far too late to easily find affordable, top-condition Land Cruisers, Broncos, Wagoneers, and various pickups from the 1960s, '70s, and '80s. Even weirdos like the Isuzu Trooper and unibody XJ-generation Jeep Cherokee are feeling the squeeze.

Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye: a Demonized Version of the Regular Hellcat

Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye: a Demonized Version of the Regular Hellcat Nothing screams "America" like giving a 707-hp muscle car another 90 horsepower. When hometown heroes Van Halen learned that David Bowie was set to receive a seven-figure payday for appearing at the 1983 US Festival in San Bernardino, California, the boys did exactly what any masters of self-promotion would do: demand an additional half-million bucks and, once acquired, promptly parade "Diamond" David Lee Roth, the band's effusive stoner-philosopher front man, before the TV cameras to gloat.

The Dodge Ramcharger was a large sport utility vehicle built by Dodge from 1974 to 1993, and based on a shortened-wheelbase version of the Dodge D Series/Ram pickup truck chassis.

If we had the capital, we'd start hoarding lesser known models like the Nissan D21 Hardbody or Plymouth Arrow. However, stuff like that isn't necessarily the best investment, so better money is probably spent on what is perhaps the vintage 4x4 market's best kept secret: the Dodge Ramcharger.

Pity the poor Ramcharger. Existing deep in the shadow of the Bronco and the Blazer even since new, the Ramcharger gets passed over for big-money builds and restorations, leaving the majority of surviving examples beaten and abused. It's a shame, considering these two-doors are handsome brutes with a similar brawny, let-your-chest-hair-flow vibe that makes the Bronco and K5 Blazer so popular. We even said as much back in 2012, when we pegged the early Ramcharger as an up and coming Collectible Classic. (Even less well known is its mechanical twin, the Plymouth Trail Duster, shown below with an earlier example of the Dodge.)

We'd start our Mopar 4x4 collection with this 1985 Dodge Ramcharger Prospector that's crossing the block at Barrett-Jackson's 2019 Scottsdale auction. It's covered just 7,563 miles since new, and looks it. You don't see many Ramchargers this clean, and especially not with the charming Prospector package. Upgraded fully with the Prospector II version of the pack—which this one has—the SUV arrived with two-tone paint, A/C, painted wheels, and power front windows, among other things. Each Prospector II also came standard with the "Royal SE Décor Package," incorporating bucket seats, a center console, an aluminum grille, and wood applique for the door panels and other locations.

According to the listing, it has the original 5.9-liter (360 ci) V-8, backed by a three-speed automatic. Not much has been done to it over the years, but it's allegedly refreshed and is ready to drive to local shows and cruise-ins. Smitten? We thought so—we certainly are.

The Dodge M37 Is An Unsung Hero Of The Korean War.
It's not the most glamorous military vehicle, but it served an important job of transporting troops and supplies. When it comes to American military vehicles, it tends to be the iconic Willys MB Jeep that gets the spotlight. However, conflicts depend largely on logistics, and without the unsung transport vehicle heroes, wars would be lost in the opening days. This 1952 Dodge M37 is one such truck, and it’s currently for sale with the Orlando Auto Museum. This three-quarter ton truck was an evolution of the WC series used in the Second World War with the model serving the United State Army.
