Dodge Dart

This car is one of two factory altered wheel base, lightweight cars built for the 1966 racing season and was owned by C.J. South, proprietor of Liberty Motors in Birmingham, Alabama.

Its "altered wheelbase" designation means that the axles have been moved forward relative to the body to give the car a more favorable weigh distribution.

The boldly painted car is powered by a 426-cubic inch Chrysler engine with Hillborn fuel injection and could run the quarter mile in nine-seconds. the name "Corruptor's Pup" was chosen to distinguish it from the full size "Corruptors" also raced by the south team.
