    I have been a Challenger fan, but especially an A66 fan for many years.
    Over the years I collected information on many A66 cars when available in just tracking the market for these special Challengers. Something I have always wanted to do is to establish a registry for the A66 Challengers. I hope to collect information as any registry would; in a confidential manner, but with enough data to put together pertinent statistics for anyone that is interested. I think a formal A66 registry would go a long way in recording important data, and determine what number of cars are actually still out there.
    I have established a dedicated e- mail, an introduction letter and registration form for this purpose.

    Please consider registering your car so that our data is organized and available to registrants. All information submitted will be kept confidential and logged into an A66 Databank. Thank you all for your interest and support in documenting our A66 Challengers!

    You can obtain the registration form by e-mailing me at the designated registry web site: a66challengerregistry61@yahoo.com. Please fill out the form and scan it to the registry email;
    I will eventually convert the registration form to a PDF file for easy e-mailing and possibly look to establish a dedicated web site (one step at a time) I have included an into letter and registration form below if interested.

    1970 A66 Challenger Registry

    I am excited about setting up an A66 Challenger members registry in order to document our special Challengers which were only made in this format for the 1970 model year. They are really “RT” Challengers with the same performance equipment, but with a powerful, high compression small block 340 engine. This is an area of strong interest of mine and I have a personal interest in these unique cars (having my A66 convertible since 1979, and owning a number of Challengers back in the day)

    This is a collaborative effort with your help, as I hope to collect as much information as possible on our A66 cars in order to document and make the data and statistics available to A66 owners or enthusiasts of these unique Challengers. Our cars are experiencing the 50+ year anniversary of their initial production this year (2020) and I thought it would be great to put the information all in one place. It would be great to estimate how many are still out there?

    I have also been collecting information about these cars for a number of years including available VIN numbers, broadcast sheets/build dates, and options and would enjoy communicating with others who share an interest and/or ownership in these cars.

    Please consider registering your A-66 Challenger by completing the attached registration form. There is no cost or fees for this and the registry is being organized for the fun and interest of A66 owners.

    I look forward to hearing from you and am always welcome any suggestions you may have. Please email me and I will quickly send you a sign-up sheet/registration form.

    You can obtain the registration form by e-mailing me at the designated registry web site: a66challengerregistry61@yahoo.com. Please fill out the form and scan it to the registry email.

    Please consider registering your car so that our data is organized and available to registrants. All information submitted will be kept confidential and logged into an A66 Databank. Thank you for your interest and support in documenting our A66 Challengers!


    Sincerely, Phillip Haramia a66challengerregistry61@yahoo.com

    You had done really good on this Phil.:thumbsup:
    I’ve got a buddy that’s currently restoring his Lemon Twist vert right now. He’s owned it as long or longer than you’ve owned yours. I’ll make sure to forward him a link.

    Matt, thanks for the positive comments
    Do you still have info on that A66 that you sold?
    It would be great to add that data to the registry.
    Just a thought!

    A thank you to Ben Lavigne for forwarding A66 data including tags to be added to the A66 Challenger Registry Information.


    I am finding some very interesting A66 Challengers in the mix as I go through the material. Be interesting moving on to find out if some cars are still in existence. I will start to post examples of A66 cars for members to enjoy and might find interesting.
