Check BAD BOY 1968 BLOWN DODGE CHARGER rt at Irwindale

When Dodge unveiled the freshly restyled Charger in 1968, it was a natural move to offer a fortified R/T musclecar variant. Though its standard 375-horse 440 Magnum was potent enough to handle nearly anything in the other lane, there was even more. Enter the optional 426 Street Hemi. Not available on non-R/T Chargers (though at least one non-R/T badged Hemi-powered engineering mule was shown to the press), the 426 Hemi added $604.75 to the Charger R/T’s $3506 base sticker price. Think about that: The Street Hemi added nearly 20 percent to the bottom line. It’s no wonder only 475 Charger R/T buyers went for the extra expense of the Hemi in 1968–211 with Chrysler’s four-speed stick, and 264 with the bulletproof Torqueflite automatic. Watching a fast as hell vintage Detroit muscle is always one of the most appealing and intriguing things, for every muscle car fan. And if you are one of those, then the following video that we have prepared for you today, is going to be a bulls-eye!
