The 1968 Old Dodge Charger 426 Hemi is a rear-wheel drive coupe car built by Dodge. It has a 7L naturally aspirated engine, overhead valve, 8-cylinder providing 425hp and a limit torque of 665 at 4000 rpm. The Old Dodge Charger included the Magnum engine as well as the unique handling package, auto Trans (though manual could be gotten at no extra cost), and the Dodge “Bumble Bee” racing stripe. A 4-speed manual transmission gives power to the wheels. I don’t think there was a cleaner design in the muscle car 1960’s than the 1968 Dodge Charger. Just look at that long racked coupe roofline and such a simple squared off front with hidden headlights that just works. The most memorable car chase in movie history in Steve McQueen’s Bullitt, has to be the 1968 Dodge Charger verses McQueen in the fastback 390 Mustang.
1968 Old Dodge Charger was a whole new year for the Charger as they got a complete redesign and its look so great . A nice quite subtle coke bottle design was grafted around the rear fenders and the rear window had a new curved in ‘flying buttress’ effect.
This is a real deal R/T Charger 2 door sports hardtop that has been beautifully restored. According to the decoded fender tag it was built on May 21 in the Hamtramck, MI plant. It is finished in Medium Green Metallic and has green interior. Options include ice cold air conditioning, Rally 500 wheels, tic-toc-tach and a Torqueflite transmission. Dodge was going to restyle its B – body alignment whole for 1968 and decided it was time to separate the Coronet and Charger models even more. What designer Richard Sias came up with was a double diamond design would later be referred to as a way of ” coke – bottle ” .
