In 1963 Dodge was serious about making their models lighter to take advantage of their new 426 “Ramcharger” Max Wedge. Fifteen Chrysler engineers and technicians worked after hours to ready their new 426 power house for the 1963 Winternationals. Beginning with a thin gauge steel body, they replaced the lower front body, splash pan, hood, hood scoops and front fenders with aluminum components. Radio, heater, sound deadener and undercoating had been deleted, trimming further heft, and the battery relocated to the trunk.
