Description for Dodge Charger 1968

Up for auction is a rare1968 Dodge Charger R/T. This amazing piece ofMopar historywas a1-Owner California Carfor almost its entire life. A little over a year ago, purchased the car from the original family. Theyhad completed 90%of the build, ut due to an illness, hey were unable to finish the car. They told me they had $65,000.00 in the build when they had to stop. By the looks of the parts list and work completed listed below, would agree. Yes, here are a few things left to be done, owever the costly items have already been taken care of and I have almostall of the parts new in the boxto finish her. These vintage R/T's are becoming harder and harder to find, ven more difficult to find in this condition. I alsohave all of the original partsthat were replaced during the build and will include them with the car upon transfer to her new owner.

Currently the car is powered by a professionally built383 Magnumthat came out of a 1969 Road Runner. It was built by H&E Racing out of Lancaster, A. The original owner told me it was set up with drag racing in mind. After spending $15K on the motor, he is now cranking out 600 HP. Some of the goodies are:

· Pete Jackson gear drives

·Beautiful new set of stainless steel Hooker Super Competition headers

·New Holley Street Dominator aluminum intake

· New Holley 850 double pumper

· New MSD ignition system

Power is transferred to the ground through a Centerforce racing clutch, rebuilt A833 4-speed transmission and a rebuilt posi trac differential (3.77 ratio) with a new Detroit Locker. This is a great combination if you want to go out and beat up on your friends at the drag strip and not have to worry about shelling a numbers matching motor.

Now if you're not into the racing scene, have the original numbers matching 440 Magnum that breeds envy when you're parked at the car show.It is complete and original from pan to carburetor, isassembled and ready for buyers inspection.

So please remember when bidding, his is an original numbers matching R/T that comes with 2 engines:

·A wicked rebuilt 383 Magnum with $15K invested that is currently in the car

·The numbers matching 440 that was in the car when she rolled off the assembly line

The car has a custom rear spoiler and custom rear flares, hat along with its aggressive cowl hood, ives it somewhat of a Nascar look. The Pearl White paint job on the car is 4 or 5 years old, ut shows well. I have posted close-up pictures of any area that needs touched up. All floor pans professionally repaired.

·It has one chip in the paint about 1/2 the size of a dime on the driver door and a couple of very small scratches on the same door that need to be touched up.

· She could use a good blocking out with some 1,000 grit and a good buffing.

·The driver's side fender has very minor damage.

·The hood will need painting to match the car, o that would be a good time to do any touch-ups.

·Cut-out for air cleaner needs to be cut out so that hood will lay flush.

·Spots on ground in pics are wet spots from washing car.

The car has been garaged and only driven around the block once or twice a month since the total overhaul began, ust to keep things moving and in good shape. I have posted several pictures of the car and pictures of the new parts that need to be installed as well as a picture of the original 440 block that shows the numbers on the block match the VIN. I also posted pictures of the original crankshaft, riginal intake manifold, riginal exhaust manifolds, riginal carburetor, riginal radio, nd original bumpers. I also snapped a picture of the collection of parts that were replaced in the build. Too many parts to take individual photos, ut if you would like me to take a picture of something in particular, will be happy to do so.

This means, n one auction, nbsp;you will get:

·1968 R/T Charger that is 90% finished with most of the parts to finish car new in the box

·2 engines (Original440 Magnum, ne built 383 Magnum)

·An extra 4-speed transmission (A833)

·Two posi trac differentials (one in car has 3.77 gears and a new Detroit Locker, nd Original Pumpkin 3.23 Ratio)

In addition, have all parts that were replaced during the build. I also have the original bumpers that can be re-chromed if returning the car back original. Below, have listed:
