LEGENDARY MOPAR MUSCLE, 440 V8, 727 AUTO, FRNT PWR DISC, PWR STEER, GR8 VALUE!!
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 attractive 1968 Dodge Charger, 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 bright blue, now rendered in modern urethane paint so the shine is fantastic. The dramatically curved body is in good overall 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, and you could erase some of the issues with a professional cut and buff. 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 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 custom bucket seat interior is mostly Charger, but now finished with comfortable cloth upholstery that's a lot better than the original sticky vinyl. Blue piping makes it look neatly tailored and matching black door panels with a taut headliner give the Charger an intimate feel inside, all anchored by black carpets and a matching dash. The factory gauges are original and showing their age, but a trio of aftermarket gauges under the dash keeps an eye on the engine's vitals. A modern AM/FM/CD stereo is in the center of the dash and a trick B&M shifter manages the TorqueFlite underneath. The trunk could use a new mat but it's in otherwise good shape.
That's a thumping 440 cubic inch V8 under the hood, rebuilt for combat and ready to rock. It's nicely detailed and has been upgraded with an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and Performer intake manifold, Mallory ignition system, and a set of headers. With a solid wall of big block torque behind you, this car always feels fast and throttle response is crisp. The 727 automatic transmission feels robust as you bang through the gears and the tough Dana 60 rear end doesn't seem to mind spinning the tires now and then. The suspension was lowered slightly which gives it an awesome rake and it's a look to match the soundtrack from the Flowmaster dual exhaust system. The floors are quite clean although not shiny and perfect, and the rear suspension is augmented with a set of traction bars to help that 440 plant the torque. Old school Cragar chrome mags look great on the Charger's sleek bodywork and carry fat 245/60/15 white-letter radials.
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!
