Saturday 19th February 1966
Introductions at the Chicago Auto Show included the Chevrolet Caribe and Concours, the Ford Magic Cruiser, the Chrysler 300-X research car and the Dodge Charger, which was easy to spot with its long fastback body. Dodge also displayed the Coronet 500, which was equipped with a V8 engine and only available as a convertible or hardtop coupe. Also that year, Chevelles ranked high on the wish lists of muscle car fans. Visitors couldn’t get enough of the models on display fitted with Super Sport (SS) trim, and a massive 6.5 litre V8 engine, packing 325 horsepower.
