0-60 4.6 seconds 12.9 1/4 mile

1968 Dodge Monaco 440 Magnum 3.23 sure grip 40,000 miles back in 1972..

I put wide track tires because the skiny stock 14' 215 70 series bias ply couldn't hook up,even at 30 mph the car did a huge burn out..

Buddy had a stock 440 Magnum Charger RT it ran 12.70's 440/3.54 and automatic,same tires as mine.

318 2bbl 1971 Fury 15.98 1/4 mile,yes a 318 car ! Bone stock as they didn't spin,just floor it and go !

1974 360 4bbl Cuda 13.8 1/4 mile bone stock

1974 Fury 360 4bbl bone stock 14.3 1/4 mile

have more old times we raced for along time,all bone stock cars,tires changed on some for better traction but still spun couldn't floor it on 440 cars for 60 feet..my 2010 Challenger SRT hooks better than any old car I have,and had..

Remember :

440 4bbl magnum high performance

440 4bbl not hi perf different heads,cam,carb than the Magnum version ..

440 4bbl 72-78 were slower than the 1966-1971 versions different compression (lower) different heads,cam,crank,carb,manifolds..less power.

** Some 1972 models had the high performance 1971 440 4bbl Magnum and 440 4bbl versions..

The period testing for 0-60 1/4 mile were bogus as bad tracks (dirty,testing when wet testing) and these old cars burn rubber,spin tires when you floor it..

Most tests were done not flooring it until 40 mph ! Only starting after the car was in 2nd gear..thus times recorded are bogus,when you floor them in 1st gear (drive) from a start you spin the tires..

My 68 440 Monaco is as quick as my 2010 Challenger SRT-8 420 hp car ! 440 has more torque as 375/480 was bogus..

440 in a Charger was a mid 12 second car,magazines back then tested a stock 440 cuda and it ran 14's with the skiny bias ply tires,they added a slick that is equal to todays radial tire,it ran low 12's..

@ Flabernat: Me, too, I've had 4 vehicles including my Dodge Dakota, which by the way, is a great truck, very dependable, 3 were American, the one that wasn't was my 1991 Toyota Previa that my Grandma handed down to me when she was moved to a nursing home. The late 90s and early 2000s were bad times for American cars, most from that period were crap, especially GM vehicles. My stepdad has almost always bought Dodges, he likes their dependability.

@Shaggy, that sucks, I like that year/style GrandPrixGT too :/
I'm so glad US cars in general aren't built like that anymore. :)

@ Flabernat: (continued) The windshield wipers stuck up when not in use, the driver window regulator broke, I got that fixed, a few weeks later, the other 3 windows wouldn't roll down and the one I got fixed stopped working. The power steering slowly leaked fluid, I had to refill it every couple of weeks, I kept spare power steering fluid and a funnel in my trunk. The L-Joint in the radiator hose broke, spewing engine coolant, I couldn't drive 5 miles without stopping to refill the engine coolant reservoir, something went wrong with my exhaust that made it feel like somebody had stuck bananas up my tailpipes, driving that car on the highway was like riding a donkey in the Kentucky Derby. And finally, my car spontaneously burst into flames when I was on my way to work, I was pulled over to let traffic by and a flame jumped out from my right front fender! 8O
The car was a total loss because it took the firefighters forever to get there, and when they did, my car was completely engulfed in flames, everything that wasn't metal in or on that car either melted or was burnt to a crisp. I loved that car, too, it was black with those 2-tone 6 spoke wheels, big lip spoiler on the trunk lid, in my opinion, the best looking car one could buy for under $40,000, I had a K&N air filter in it, when it ran right, I averaged 30 MPG, it was the fastest car I ever owned.

@ Flabernat: My first vehicle was a 1993 Chevrolet S-10 standard cab, long bed with 165 horsepower 4.3 liter 262 C.I. OHV V6 and 4 speed overdrive automatic 700 R4 transmission, it was unreliable, it leaked engine coolant onto the passenger side floorboard from the heater core, that got fixed, one night on my way to work, I hit a deer and it smashed my grill and busted my rediator. The car I had after that was a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GT Sedan, had all kinds of problems with that piece of crap.

@ Shaggy, bummer dude. What were you driving? I've owned 2 Pontiacs over the years, GrandAMGT was okay reliability, but the G6GTP Coupe I had was bullet proof. Nothing ever broke on that thing!... Until I hit black-ice and Un-intentionality went offroading :/

@ aaaa: I used to be a GM fanatic, and a die hard Chevy fan, until I had 2 GM vehicles that failed me, and I noticed all the reliability problems that many modern GM vehicles had. I test drove a 2008 Dodge Dakota after my Pontiac caught fire, that truck won me over to Mopars. My household has always mostly been a Mopar family, though. Everyone in my household drives Dodges, now.

I love the Monaco, especially the ones from the late 60s to mid 70s, the 440 Magnum is an awesome engine and fits this beast well, Dodges rock!

0-60 in about 7.8 seconds and a 15.1 second quarter mile, not bad for such a massive car
