Dodge Charger R/T

Real "J" Code 426 Hemi        ***        Rare AA1 Silver Paint        ***        Keisler/Tremec 5 Speed

Same Owner for 14 Years


Offered for sale is my 1968 Hemi Charger R/T.   It is a REAL factory "J" Code Hemi Car and a REAL factory 4-speed car. 1 of 211 built.   Rarer still is that it is a factory AA1 "Buffed Silver" paint car.   I have owned this car for 14 years as part of my collection and it has always been stored in a heated/cooled/humidity controlled garage.   This Hemi Charger R/T was featured in MOPAR MUSCLE Magazine in November 1997 and has owner history back to when it was ordered new.   This car has been in The Charger Registry since 1989.

Still wearing what I believe is it's only repaint applied by Totally Auto in '92-'93. this original 35k mile car's paint looks the way these cars did when they were new.   Underneath you will find all the original factory undercoat still in outstanding condition and when you look inside the trunk. the original quarter panels & trunk floor are wearing the factory applied sound deadener and all the original pinch welds are clearly visible on the original body.   Under the hood. the production # is stamped in the radiator core support (right next to the original 1968 Hemi radiator) and the left side of the trunk rail is also wearing its stamping.  

For many years I drove and enjoyed the car the way it was when I purchased it.   Around 2011. I decided to begin making a few upgrades to the car so it could be better enjoyed.   The undercarriage was completely rebuilt using all new urethane bushings. nbsp;Moog suspension components as well as adding front disc brakes (original drum units were saved).   The interior was in good condition. but I decided to refurbish the it as well as having Red Line Instruments rebuilt & refinish all the gauges. Secret Audio upgrade the original radio to AM/FM with more power and you can plug in your IPhone and play your favorite music.   I added a new correct center console and had the original Inland Shifter lever re-chrome plated after modifying to fit the 5 speed.   I have a complete new set of seat belts that I have not yet installed.   As for the drivetrain. I had INDY CYLINDER HEAD build a bored & stroked 484 ci engine using a rare set of DART Pro Stock Aluminum heads that were custom machined and bench flow tested.   I had everything under the hood finished to be as stock appearing as possible as I like the "as factory" appearance.   Sporting a solid lifter cam. 3" TTI header/exhaust system. a 4. 11 gear set (completely rebuilt by Herb McCandless). and a Tremec 5-speed by KEISLER Engineering. you have the best of all worlds. The car is a beast in 1st thru 4th. then you have that wonderful 5th gear so you can drive it on the highway without all the fuss.  Another recent upgrade was the addition of redline radial tires all the way around. 225-70-15 for the front and the 275-60-15 Nitto Drag Radials for the rear.   I have all the "H" wheels for the car. though I had to add a set of 15x7 1972 "C" body wheels for the drag radials at the rear to fit properly.

This car is "turn the key and drive to California" ready.   There are no issues to sort out.   This is a rare car and it has been well cared for and collector maintained.   It has all the upgrades that you dream about doing. but don't want to endure the time/expense/aggravation of doing.
