Fireball sketches CHRYSLER FIREPOWER for today’s Badassery

When I go to the AUTO SHOW, I could care less about new cars. Whatever, dude. What I want to see… like many of you, are the CONCEPTS. But I generally want to see what I CAN DO WITH THEM.

One of my favorites that came out in the last 20 years was the DODGE FIREPOWER. It’s design language still holds up and although I actually did the line drawing when it originally came out, I never had a chance to get YOU guys a finish like this… so, Voila! Check out this NEW CANVAS and all the other Dodge madness HERE!

*When I was REALLY young, my brother and I would get into the new cars and pull off all the knobs! Yup. We’d collect them in a bag and whomever had less had to buy lunch. Ah… the good ol’ days…

DID YOU KNOW?? The Chrysler Firepower was a Dodge Viper-based concept car produced in 2005. It takes some of the styling cues from the Chrysler Crossfire. According to Chrysler, its 6.1 L Hemi V8 engine produced 425 hp (317 kW) and could propel the vehicle to a 0-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds and has a top speed of 174 mph. Yea, we though that was fast at the time…

Ride of the Day… Badass Super Rare Aussie 1972 CHRYSLER VALIANT CHARGER RT1

The Chrysler Valiant Charger was a two door hardtop coupe introduced by Chrysler Australia in 1971. It was a short wheelbase version of the concurrent Australian Chrysler Valiant sedan. Introduced within the VH Valiant series, it continued as a variant through the subsequent VJ, VK and CL series, until production ceased in 1978. It was marketed and badged as the Valiant Charger in the VH and VJ series and as the Chrysler Charger in the later VK and CL series.

While still based on the US Chrysler A-body platform, with virtually identical front suspension, the fenders were widened, and a wider rear axle fitted, so that the track, front and rear, was considerably wider than any US A-body, this also allowed wheels much wider than a US A-body. The Australian Chargers also used a 5-on-4.5″ wheel bolt circle (still 7/16″ studs), while the US cars did not go to “big bolt pattern” until 1973.

The Charger was extraordinarily popular in Australia during the VH series. At one point Charger production totalled 80% of all Australian Valiant production.

The VH Valiant Charger achieved critical acclaim, winning the 1971 Australian Wheels Car of the Year Award. It was also popular in New Zealand where they were assembled from imported kits.

The sporty image of the Charger faded through the VJ range of cars and was neutered altogether by 1975 release of the VK series.

During the seven years of production, the Charger carried many variations of essentially two basic powerplants, based on the Chrysler Hemi-6 Engine and versions of the Chrysler LA engine V8.
