Dodge Charger modified (1968)


Dodge Charger modified (1968)

The Charger was one of the biggest two-door coupes ever built, but its size didn't mean it was slow. Its most popular big-block engine option for 1968 wasn't the Hemi but the 440ci (7-2-liter), which gave plenty of power plus good street manners. Because of the handsome lines and muscular 'Coke bottle' styling, the Chargers of 1968 and 1969 rarely see major modification. Items like the door sculpted 'vents', concealed headlamps and Ferrari-like double tail lamps make it a favorite for muscle-car fans even in stock form, and knowing that they have the full support of Chrysler's Mopar performance division for spares makes all the difference. The amount of money they are worth now also makes it sensible to keep mods to a minimum. The owner of this vehicle has made minor changes to the engine for extra power, and the car runs in the 13s in the trim used on the street.
