The 1968 Dodge Charger R/T Hemi was a muscle car with star quality.
Charger’s new hidden-headlamp grille, curvy body, elegant recessed backlight, refined tail, and spare use of chrome represented a styling high point for ’60s muscle cars
1968 Dodge Charger, with a great sky blue paint job, pretty much preserved in its original shape and form, just as it was when it got out of the assembly lane
Engine could be hooked to a TorqueFlite automatic with a floor lever or a four-speed with a Hurst Competition-Plus shifter.Automatic was the ticket for straight-line acceleration, and Hemi cars got a special high-stall-speed torque converter (3.23:1gears were standard). The driver could upshift at 6500 rpm, or let the TorqueFlite do it at 5500. In traffic, the Hemi could be driven like a docile small-block yet was more than half a second quicker and 10 mph faster in the quarter-mile than a 440 Charger.
