1964 Dodge Hemi Charger Concept Car to be auctioned off on Jan. 20

Article by Christian A., on January 12, 2011

RM Auctions will be putting the 1964 Dodge Hemi Charger Concept Car up for grabs at the Automobiles of Arizona event at Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa, on January 20.

The concept was created in 1963 on the underpinnings of the Polara. It is actually a very important vehicle in Dodge’s history as it is the first one to use the Charger nameplate.

This concept was intended to turn the attention on Chrysler’s newest engine back then, the now iconic 426-cubic inch (7.0-liter) Hemi V8 engine.

RM Auctions has yet to reveal its estimate but the vehicle is expected to trade for an amount that’s higher than the $1.1 million (€830,000) it fetched the last time it was sold in 2007.

During the car’s 47 years in existence, it has been owned by several collectors and is now in the possession of the late John M. O’Quinn.

It has been restored by Fran Roxas who put in one of the original 15 race Hemi engines, rated at 600+hp, under the bonnet.

The 1964 Dodge Hemi Charger Concept Car is equipped with a 3-speed automatic transmission, independent torsion bar front and rear semi-elliptic leaf spring suspension, 4.56:1 “Sure Grip” rear axle and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.
