Dodge and Mustang Anniversary Specials from GreenLight, 1:64  — Online Exclusive

Pretty much everyone knows about the 50th anniversary of the Mustang as it coincided with the launch of the all-new 2015 model. Mopar fans will note that this marks the 100th anniversary of the Dodge Brothers establishing their eponymous automobile brand. What better excuse then than to take a look at GreenLight’s 1:64 Anniversary Collection Series, which combines a trio of the hottest models from each brand spanning the 1960’s through today.

100TH ANNIVERSARY DODGES

_MG_9066Horace and John Dodge had begun their careers as subcontracting manufacturers of engine parts for Olds and Ford, but by 1914 had decided they could do more on their own. Horsepower and mechanical sophistication were the earmarks of the brand early on—traits that carry through to today and are symbolized by GreenLight’s 1:64 replicas in metallic red.

 

 

_MG_9017The 2nd Generation Charger was a sensation when it debuted in 1968. Seductive Coke-bottle curves and a trio of potent big blocks—topped by the legendary 426 Hemi—made it an instant hit._MG_9022

 

_MG_9020More than 40 years later the Charger has morphed into a 4-door sedan, but the performance is no less impressive. Hemi V8s ranging from 370 (R/T) to 470 (SRT) horsepower mean the modern Charger handily outperforms its classic forbearer. GreenLight’s is an R/T.
