This Show-Stopper Has a Surprise Under the Hood

Rich and Karen Mehas are the proud owners of a Grand National Roadster show class-winning 1966 Dodge Coronet. Despite its track-like appearance, it is primarily used on the street rather than at the dragstrip. LP Racing shop handled the fabrication of the suspension, including a state-of-the-art setup for control under power, on the originally neglected project car. They also added, among other things, a 540-cubic-inch Wedge engine and twin Precision GT4788 turbochargers that make the car capable of more than 2,000 horsepower. Body modifications, a custom paint job and interior upgrades were done by Speedway Customs and Ron Mangus. 78-year-old Rich Mehas is ready to let someone else enjoy it, and the powerhouse restomod 1966 Dodge Coronet is listed for sale.
