The drag racing super star and national hero Dick Landy totally dominated the strips with his 1965 Dodge HEMI Coronet and made the crowd go wild with crazy wheelstands back in the 60’s. Later on behind the wheel of the A/FX class drag racing car was Jim Wetton and the Mopar was restored to its original condition by ‘Hemi Eddie’ Strzelcecki.
Considered the most popular full-bodied drag car of its time, Dick Landy’s 1965 Dodge HEMI Coronet was auctioned at Mecum Kissimmee in January of 2018. Even if you are not a classic car collector I believe you’ll enjoy to see and hear more about this iconic Mopar.
