The star performer on the track is not the flashy driver or the sleek racecar but the powerful engine. The Chrysler 426 HEMI engine sits high on the list of the top 10 engines of all time voted by various automotive enthusiasts. This legendary engine, known as the Elephant for its phenomenal size, entered the world in 1964 as a mighty race-only motor that powered through to a NASCAR win in Daytona. The dominance of this groundbreaking engine led to a change of rules so that racers could only employ parts available in production vehicles instead of bespoke, race-only engines. The 426 HEMI features hemispherical combustion chambers, which were revolutionary when Chrysler unveiled the design. The detuned street big block 426 HEMI offers 425 horsepower and 490 feet-pounds of torque. You can find a 426 HEMI engine in a range of vehicles across the Dodge/Plymouth platforms, including the 1969 Dodge Charger, made famous in "The Dukes of Hazzard." As well as complete engines, there are numerous parts available on eBay, including 426 HEMI pistons that keep your Elephant in good shape.Shop the large inventory of motors, parts, accessories, and complete Dodge car and truck engines!
