I recall an article about a white one in Muscle Car Review magazine back in the 80s.  Only a few were built.   I think there was a red one also.

I believe that I was told by someone in a Mopar restoration shop that four were built.

The white one sits in the Don Garlit's museum in Ocala, FL.

I know of a white one, a red one, and this one- I saw the gold car for sale at Carlisle in the early 2000's.

The Garlits car was supposedly built for the FBI as a test car. One of the others (I think the red one) was special ordered new by a Mr. Floyd Cline, because he wanted a 4 door with dual quads for towing. There was an article in Mopar Action magazine back in the early 90's on both the red and white cars. Their rarity was known even back then.  

In '66, when the Street Hemi was released, that engine presumably could have been ordered in any B-body body style or trim level. I think I read that there might be a 4-door '66 Plymouth in Europe somewhere.

Here is my homage to these cars...I couldn’t scratchbuild a 4 door ‘66 Coronet body (I would love to have one, my family had one of those cars when I was little, although not a Hemi!), and I didn’t want to try to modify a ‘67 Plymouth body. I used the next best thing. No ‘68 B body 4 door Hemis were built to my knowledge, but if they were, they might have looked like this...

The Gold one is one of I think there were 3 , maybe  4 known Dodges 

I believe there are a  red, this gold and a white one,,,for some reason I think there is another red one now known .?????

Also I believe there is verified to be a dark blue 1966 Plymouth that was in Finland ( car was stolen long , long ago)

This gold one. Belongs to a guy I know in Elyria  Ohio
