27. Dodge Dart 413 Max Wedge
The early ‘60s marked Mopar’s entry into the drag racing scene with several models. The first of which was the brutally fast Dart 413 Max Wedge. The 1962 Dart was a midsize family model offered with either a six-cylinder or a V8 engine and a long list of options. Basically, it was a high-volume car with no racing pretensions until they added a big 413 Wedge engine with up to 420 HP.
They equipped it with a limited-slip differential, a heavy-duty suspension, and a lightweight body with a stripped interior. All that made the Dodge Dart 413 a true muscle car for the drag strips. The 413 Max Wedge package was more expensive but still popular with amateur racers who could finally challenge and win.
