The Original Scat Pack Debut (Part 2)

Dodge Cars St. LouisAs is the cars that were highlighted in the late 1960s and early 1970s were not enough, there was another icon that made consistent appearances. Joe Higgins, the Dodge Safety Sherriff was always good for some advice. “Ya’ll drive careful now, hear?”, he would instruct Dodge owners from their televisions and print ads.

Sheriff Higgins was features at the 1969 Chicago Auto Show and he signed so may autographs his hand went numb.

The auto show circuit was also traveled by several Dodger spokesmodels that answer questions about the Dodge Scat Pack vehicles while dressed in the latest fashions. Of course, these fashions are all donned with the Dodge Scat Pack logo. Other marketing materials, like bumper stickers saying “Run with the Dodge Scat Pack” rapidly became mementos sought after by the clamoring show attendees.

The Dodge Scat Pack Mini-Tickler is one exceedingly rare marketing knickknack. Less that 1,000 pieces of this unique costume jewelry were distributed to Dodge spokesmodels and female members of the Dodge Scat Pack Mini-Tickler. The oh-so-1960s marketing copy began “For all the scat kittens who swing with the Scat Packers …” Today, an original piece will cost around $800.

The same treatment is being given to the present-day Dodge Scat Pack as the original received. Authentic retro attire with the Scat Pack logo has been divvied out to the Dodge spokesmodels. Even a new, specifically reproduced version of the Mini-Tickler will be a fixture at auto shows throughout 2014. These will be providing information about the new Dodge Scat package vehicles and performance upgrade kits on display.

Vehicle and displays for the reincarnated Dodge Scat Pack will be coming soon to an auto show near you Dodge Cars, St. Louis! A new generation of enthusiasts’ passion will be fueled with this look at the original line-up.

The Original Scat Pack Debut (Part 1)

Dodge Cars St. LouisDuring the late 1960s and early 1970s, old-school enthusiasts found love at first sight as auto shows across the country began showing the original and iconic Dodge Scat Pack vehicles. The good news, at events like the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) – which happened late in January – a new generation of car lovers is receiving their initiation with the reborn Dodge Scat Pack.

Continuing to debut iconic car keeps the old-school magic alive. At Detroit’s COBO Center, the Dodge brand display hosted a special 2014 Dodge Challenger. This member of the revived “hive” is accompanied by a 2014 Dodge Charger and 2014 Dodge Dart. For Dodge owners who want to flex their muscles, all three have been modified with new Scat Package Performance Upgrade kits that will be available soon. The COBO venue is very fitting for this event. Similar events, like the 1968 Detroit Auto Show, were also held at COBO. It was at this event that the Dodge Charger R/T, Dodge Coronet R/T, Dodge Dart GTS and Super Bee first wowed crowds.

The original Dodge Scat Pack vehicles traveled their circuit from 1968-1971. They hit auto shows in many major cities beyond Detroit. They visited Chicago, New York, L.A. and many state fairs. To own even one of those stunning vehicles that traveled the circuit, no doubt today’s collectors would give an arm or leg. For instance, the original Super Bee Car was a 1968 Coronet R/T convertible that was yellow with a blacked-out hood.

Andy Agosta, a retired Dodge marketing executive who worked for the brand during the Dodge Scat Pack’s birth stated, “The crowds were so excited. We displayed Scat Pack vehicles in all the hot colors — HEMI® Orange, Top Banana, Go Mango and Plum Crazy. All the cars had the Bumble Bee stripes. The displays were a big hit and played an important role in the popularity and reputation of the Dodge Scat Pack program.”
