Dodge Charger 1968 Description

If we could, we'd stock all the Streetside Classics showrooms with nothing but 1968-1970 Dodge Chargers. They sell and they sell FAST! So if you're admiring this nasty black-on-black 1968 Dodge Charger R/T, complete with a gnarly 440, pick up the phone and call right now because there's no way it'll be here next week.Chrysler totally nailed the muscle car look with the Charger, and right out of the gate, the '68s changed the game forever. This one is dressed in basic black, now rendered in modern PPG urethane paint so the shine is fantastic. Add in a big honkin' hood scoop and you get the perfect performance look, Mopar style. The dramatically curved body is in excellent condition with crisp details and very good panel alignment, all critical on a car where every panel needs the one next to it to look right. It's got a few signs of use and age, but there's no question that the work is very well done, all of it designed to get this car noticed. Cool 1968 details include the little round side marker lights and the round taillights that look like jet exhaust ports or something, not to mention the full-width grille and hidden headlights, which snap open when you hit the switch. The flying buttress roofline wasn't aerodynamic enough for NASCAR but looks like a million bucks on the street and is one of the Charger's finest features. Nice chrome bumpers and correct R/T badges round out a car that's built to cruise, not for a trailer.The black bucket seat interior is correctly restored using parts from Legendary that accurately replicate the Charger's unusual seat covers that look like they have splits in their surfaces. That's actually how they came from the factory and it does make for a rather comfortable ride. Matching black door panels and a taut headliner give the Charger an intimate feel inside, all anchored by black carpets and a matching dash. A center console is a desirable optional extra and the instruments include a factory tach as well as a set of auxiliary dials ahead of the shifter. It also includes an AM radio with Chrysler's unusual vertical knobs (it's not working, so it's due for an upgrade) and yes, this is a factory A/C car with modern components now working behind the scenes. The trunk was obviously restored and repainted with the rest of the car, and it's been fitted with a correct reproduction mat. That's a 1977-vintage 440 cubic inch V8 under the hood, rebuilt for combat and ready to rock. There are Six Pack rods inside, a Comp Cams camshaft, and an Edelbrock intake manifold and 4-barrel carburetor up top. Its' nicely detailed to look stock and with the original air cleaner up top, a set of painted valve covers, and factory-style hardware, it does look rather OEM. The factory manifolds actually work as well as headers (as if this 440 needs any help in that department) and with a solid wall of big block torque behind you, this car always feels fast. The TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission from Phoenix Transmission feels robust as you bang through the gears and the 8.75-inch rear end doesn't seem to mind spinning the tires now and then thanks to an Auburn limited slip and 3.55 gears. The suspension was lowered slightly and uses PST components and the 4-wheel power disc brakes are a good idea when your car can generate this kind of speed. They live behind flashy chrome Coys wheels with staggered 245/45/17 front and 295/45/18 rear Nitto radials that give this Charger a wicked stance.These cars are insanely popular and this one gets all the big stuff right: great looks, big engine, lots of power, and no issues. Like I said, if you've read this far, it might already be too late. Call now!
