In this video, we take a look at some of the purpose-built Chrysler Legendary Factory Lightweight Drag Racing Warriors from the 1960s.

In the 1960s, US auto makers were in a horsepower and go-fast arms race to score drag racing victories at tracks across the country.

Back then, manufacturers were keen on getting their brands and cars in front of race spectators, tv viewers and featured in magazine articles as a form of marketing, especially if their cars won. They even coined an adage for it: Win on Sunday – Sell on Monday!

These cars were built in limited quantities, and most were not street legal and were discouraged for purchase by members of the general public not involved in drag racing. Even when new, these cars were rare, and today, all original examples are even more scare as many did not survive their drag racing glory days in their factory original form or were straight up scrapped.

We time travel back to the 60s to see what Chrysler’s need-for-speed wizards had cooked up to reign supreme on the drag strip and make history with their legendary creations.
