#'S MATCHING 383 CHARGER, RECENT RE-PAINT, FACTORY AIR, R/T BADGES ADDED
If there's one muscle car we know will make the phone ring, it's this 1969 Dodge Charger. A perennial favorite among Mopar fans, this is arguably the best-looking powerhouse of the late-60s. Each of the three years has its proponents, so if you're a '69 fan, this one with its numbers-matching 383 and factory A/C probably warrants at least a phone call. It won't be here later, I can promise you that.
Repainted in 2014, this super sharp Charger definitely has the look, from the hidden headlights up front to the razor-sharp fender lines, to the flying buttress C-pillars out back, and there's nothing else that looks like it. The Dark Green paint is the car's original color and we're always especially fond of Chargers with elegant and subtle paint jobs, simply because it lets the gorgeous body shape speak for itself. Aside from adding a black R/T "bumblebee" stripe around the tail, they restored it just the way it came out of the box, although Chrysler wasn't building anything this shiny in 1969. The split front grille is unique to the '69s, and it does have R/T badges added to match the tail stripe, but I don't think anyone's going to complain. The black vinyl top gives it a grown-up look and is in excellent condition with the right grain and a great fit. Use of chrome is restrained on the Charger, but the shiny bits like the bumpers, dual side mirrors, and window surrounds all look great, particularly against the dark green paint.
Chargers are probably popular because they're fast, but also because they're spacious, comfortable, and surprisingly luxurious. The handsome two-tone bucket seats are quite likely original and show only light signs of use, making it very inviting inside. The same is true of the door panels, dash pad, and headliner, although we're betting the carpets have been replaced since they're just too nice. A center console is always a welcome sight and this one has factory A/C, which has been converted to R134a refrigerant, so it's easy to service. There's also a factory AM/FM radio in the dash, a nice upgrade over the standard Music Master AM unit and the gauges, while original, still look pretty good. Newer rubber floor mats are a thoughtful touch and keep the new carpets looking good and the trunk is fully finished with a correct mat and a full-sized spare tire.
The very stock-looking engine bay houses the original, numbers-matching 383 cubic inch V8, which was rebuilt in 1997. It's got a few signs of use, but the overall condition of the engine bay is consistent with a very well-kept original car and everybody is impressed by how smoothly this sucker idles. An Edelbrock 600 CFM carburetor lives under the original air cleaner, and there are some modern spark plug wires, but beyond that, it's quite stock and authentic-looking. The 727 TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission behind it turns the original 8.75-inch rear end and you'll note that there are a pair of fresh Flowmaster mufflers down there, so it has that awesome Mopar big block sound. A new gas tank and lines ensure a steady supply of high octane and it sits on fantastic Magnum 500 wheels and recent F70-14 Firestone redlines for a totally authentic look.
This one is going to be like every other Charger we've had, so don't just sit there and wait, call today!
