BULLITT'S MYSTERIOUS NEMESIS, 440 V8, 727 TORQUEFLIGHT, TRIPLE BLACK, A/C!!!
If I were a gambling man, I'd wager that this triple-black 1968 Dodge Charger R/T will sell faster than any other car we've ever offered. Is it the best looking muscle car of all time? Hard to argue against it, and with a 440 under the hood it's got the performance hardware to back up its awesome look. If you're even considering this car, you need to call us now.
You can't do better than basic black on the Charger's angular shape, and it's one of the more intimidating machines to come out of the muscle car era. Someone spent a considerable amount of time and effort to get this one into its current spectacular condition, and yes, there's a lot of sheetmetal to straighten, smooth, and buff. None of the factory details were altered, so you get that cool hood with recessed ducts that don't need to be overt to be effective, and the grille/headlight combination varied each year, with '68 being a perennial favorite for Mopar fans. The finish is about a mile deep and while it's not quite perfect, you'll be proud to show this one off and eager to get it home after you've bought it. A matching black vinyl roof adds a bit of elegance to the car's look, which is easy to do with those dramatic flying buttresses, and the round taillights are some of the coolest in the business. Nice chrome bumpers, fully functional headlight doors, and those trick little round side marker lights all make this an unmistakable piece of Mopar muscle.
The black bucket seat interior uses correct patterns and materials to take you back to 1968. No, the seats aren't split, that's how they were designed and it's not only distinctive, but unique to the '68 Chargers. Rallye gauges, including a Tick-Tock-Tach, are probably a must-have on an R/T like this, but factory air-conditioning is a very pleasant surprise. The center console houses the slick shifter for the 727 TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission so it's easy to shift manually if that's your thing. Even the original AM radio remains in the dash along with a rear speaker, suggesting that keeping this one factory-correct was important to the guys restoring it, which is something we can all respect. The massive trunk is correctly finished with a reproduction mat and that tube is for the fully-functional flip-up filler cap on top of the rear quarter panel.
The engine is a correct 440 cubic inch V8 rebuilt and dressed to look like the factory did it. Under the original air cleaner you'll find a big Carter 4-barrel carburetor, while the A/C compressor takes up most of the remaining real estate up top. Correct Chrysler Turquoise paint adds a little contrast to the engine bay and original cast iron exhaust manifolds are so effective that headers are probably unnecessary. The TorqueFlite snaps through the gears with authority and is always ready to serve up a quick downshift and the 8.75-inch rear end doesn't seem to mind the torque. Flowmaster mufflers offer that notorious big block Mopar sound with correct rectangular tips and there's just enough rake in the suspension to give it that perfect stance. Vintage-looking Torque Thrust wheels are a popular addition and carry 225/70/15 BFGoodrich radials that fill the wheel wells but don't cause trouble in tight turns.
Documented with the original warranty card, owner's manual, and restoration receipts, there's just no way this car is going to be here for very long. Like I said, if I were willing to wager, I'd bet on this car. Call now!
