Featured here is one of the vehicles that Chrysler built in 1963 for the specific purpose of racing. This 426 cubic inch Max Wedge-powered Dodge 330 Lightweight features Chrysler’s unique cross-ram intake with two 4-barrel carburetors, monstrous 13.5:1 compression, special heads, and heavy-duty internal parts. These cars were winners of NHRA racing and numerous other racing titles. The car offered here was one of the 33 high-compression factory lightweight 330s produced in 1963, featuring factory aluminum fenders, bumpers, bumper supports and scooped aluminum hood, a trunk-mounted battery, and other special adaptations. It was ordered new through Alston Motors, Inc. in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. This car is in as-raced condition with a believed-original 490 miles. It is painted Polar White with red cloth and vinyl bench-seat interior. The date-correct engine is backed by an A727 TorqueFlite transmission with a reverse valvebody dashboard-mounted pushbutton shifter. Since it was created as a racecar, it left the assembly plant without heater or radio. It now rides on vintage-type Cragar performance wheels. For provenance as to its origins, it is listed in the VIN list compiled and published by Darrell Davis, and features a copy of its broadcast card, accompanying Chrysler Historical Services paperwork, and a specific letter directly from Mr. Davis on its existence.
