Here Is What You Need To Build Your Own Mopar Challenger Drag Pak!

13 Greatest Mopar Drag Cars of All Time

Speed was taking over America in the early 1950s. Drag racing was spreading across the plains one small-town airstrip at a time, and overhead-valve V8s like Chrysler’s new Hemi were putting Ford’s once dominant flathead in the history books.

Mopar has been synonymous with drag racing ever since. And quarter-mile performance cars from Dodge and Plymouth, as well as their drivers, have become legends on the street and the strip.

More than 65 years later, they keep on coming. With the imminent introduction of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, we decided to look back at the greatest Mopar drag cars of all time.

It wasn’t easy. We considered countless machines that won races, pioneered technologies, and advanced the sport of speed. Read on for the historic baker’s dozen that made the final cut. Then consider buying yourself a “Mopar or No Car” t-shirt.

10. 1965 Altered-Wheelbase Dodge A990

This was one of the sport’s first altered-wheelbase doorslammer race cars, which eventually led to flip-body funny cars minutes later. Dodge sent 12 A990 Super Stock Hemi-powered hardtops to Amblewagon in Detroit for surgery. For improved rear weight distribution and traction for the 1965 season, the Mopars’ front wheels were moved forward 10 inches and their rear axles up by 15. The cars were much faster but funny looking, hence the name. They were delivered to the sport’s best, including Dick Landy, Ronnie Sox, Al Eckstrand, and “The California Flash” Butch Leal.
