Brute force meets elegance in this incredible 1968 Dodge Charger resto-mod. You can't get past the brutal look which quietly screams horsepower, and inside you'll find 440 cubes of Mopar's finest to back up the image. It's subtle in a not-so-subtle way, a car that gets a lot of attention without having to scream about it.
The color is called Pewter, and it's borrowed from the GM color pallet, and it works exceptionally well on a performance car; after all, it debuted on the C5 Corvette. It's so fresh you can almost smell the wet paint and if there's a better looking canvas than a '68 Charger, I can't imagine what it might be. The sharp edges are highlighted by the glowing paint and the combination of the soft hue and black accents makes for a very intimidating package. Fit and finish are excellent, far better than most Mopars of the era, and most of the exterior trim, including the bumpers, mirrors, door handles, and even the bezels around the cool little round side marker lights were painted to match. A black vinyl top contributes to the no-nonsense attitude and you'll note that the stainless trim has been blacked out to give it the look of a fighter jet cockpit. And just to keep things balanced, the tail panel has been blacked out too. The look is awesome!
The interior isn't too far removed from stock, with bucket seats wearing black vinyl seat covers that echo the factory patterns. But the blacked-out theme definitely reaches inside with a satin black console, a body-colored lower dash, and a minimum of frills. Heck, even the factory horn ring and shifter lever are now satin black! Fresh black carpets and nice-looking door panels look tidy and the factory gauges include a big speedo and Tick-Tock-Tach, as well as auxiliary gauges under the dash almost out of sight. The original rocker switches manage the secondary controls and even the factory-issued AM/FM radio is still in the dash, mostly because it looks cool. The Charger is great because it also offers a full-sized back seat for friends and a truly massive trunk for your gear. And speaking of the trunk, it's outfitted with a reproduction plaid mat and you'll note that the Pewter paint extends into the jambs, so you know this was a full disassembly job.
A Charger isn't a Charger without big block power, and the built 440 under the hood doesn't disappoint. Recently rebuilt, it's got all kinds of good stuff like a Holley 4-barrel carburetor atop a high-rise Edelbrock intake manifold, a set of Mopar Performance finned valve covers and a matching air cleaner, and a giant aluminum radiator up front to keep temps under control. Check out the beautifully finished inner fenders and firewall, and a few polished items like the alternator and pulleys make everything sparkle. The 737 TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission was just rebuilt and feeds an 8.75-inch rear end. Long-tube headers and a new dual exhaust system give it a spectacular roar and four-wheel disc brakes not only enhance performance but look awesome behind the open wheels. The lowered stance helps with the wickedness and those staggered American Racing alloys with 245/40/18 front and 275/35/20 rear performance radials.
We can't seem to keep Chargers in stock, and this one is one of the nastiest we've ever featured. It's definitely got the performance to go with that industrial-strength look. Call today!
