1968 Dodge Charger R/T

*****READ ENTIRE AD BEFORE CONTACTING ME...IT WILL SAVE US BOTH A LOT OF TIME******


I PURCHASED THIS CHARGER ABOUT 8 MONTHS AGO WITH INTENTIONS OF RESTORING IT, BUT MY PLANS HAVE CHANGED. I DON'T CLAIM TO BE A MOPAR EXPECT, BUT HAVE OWNED UPWARDS OF 30 CLASSIC CARS (PRE 1974) OVER THE YEARS, HERE IS WHAT I KNOW ABOUT THIS ONE.


THIS CHARGER, WHICH DECODES BY FENDER AND VIN TAGS AS A FACTORY 440, 4 SPEED, TRIPLE BLACK, VINYL TOP CAR, SAT UNBEKNOWST TO ME UNDER A CARPORT, ABOUT 8 MILES FROM MY HOUSE, HAVING NEVER BEEN ON THE ROAD OR TITLED SINCE 1977 (I HAVE A PIC OF THE ARKANSAS GREEN TITLE THAT CAME WITH THE CAR, DATED 1977-HAD TO TURN IT IN OF COURSE TO OBTAIN THE CLEAR NON SALVAGE CURRENT ARKANSAS TITLE I HAVE IN MY NAME). IT IS A MANUAL STEERING 4 WHEEL DRUM BRAKE CAR, IT WAS MADE TO GO IN A STRAIGHT LINE. IT IS NOT THE ORIGINAL ENGINE, HAVING A 440 HIPO OUT OF A 75 VINTAGE MOPAR OF SOME SORT, (MOPARTS WEBSITE STATES THE 440 HIPO WAS PRODUCED THROUGH 1978, THOUGH OBVIOUSLY DETUNED FROM THE 60'S MODELS).

I HAVE INCLUDED A PIC OF THE FRONT PAD ON THE BLOCK SHOWING THE 5T HIPO STAMPING, I ALSO HAVE A PIC (EMAIL ME IF YOU WOULD LIKE IT, CAN ONLY POST 24) OF THE SIDE OF THE BLOCK SHOWING THE CASTING NUMBER 4006630-440-5 WITH A CAST DATE OF 1974.


I HAVE INCLUDED A PIC OF THE TRANSMISSION CASE NUMBER WHICH SHOWS IT TO BE THE CORRECT 833 MANUAL TRANSMISSION NUMBER WITH A BUILD DATE CORRESPONDING TO 1968 ACCORDING TO DECODE ON THE MOPAR 10000 DAY CALENDER (MOPARTS WEBSITE). THE DANA 60 REAR DOES NOT HAVE A DATE CODE I'M AWARE OF BUT I HAVE PROVIDED A PIC OF THE CASE TAG NOTING TO 'USE LIMITED SLIP DIFF LUBE ONLY' . I 'BELIEVE' (I DON'T WARRANTY IT), THAT THE TRANS AND DIFF ARE ORIGINAL TO THE CAR, THE ENGINE OBVIOUSLY IS NOT. THE RADIATOR HAS ORIGINAL MOPAR MARKINGS.


I HAVE DECODED THE FENDER TAG AND THE CASTING NUMBERS TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY FROM VARIOUS WEBSITES. I DO NOT, WARRANTY THAT ALL INFORMATION IS CORRECT, I DO WARRANTY THAT THE PICS AND INFO I HAVE SUPPLIED ARE FROM THIS VEHICLE. I 'BELIEVE' IT IS PRETTY MUCH THE BULLITT CAR AS EQUIPPED (NOT 'THE' ACTUAL MOVIE CAR OBVIOUSLY).


THIS CHARGER WILL REQUIRE A FAIR AMOUNT OF METAL WORK, THERE ARE LOTS OF DENTS/DINGS/BRUISES. TRUNK PAN AND FLOOR PANS WILL NEED REPLACING IN ADDITION TO PASSENGER REAR QUARTER CERTAINLY. ROOF IS VERY DETERIORATED (LIKELY DUE TO THE VINYL TRAPPING MOISTURE) AND WILL NEED REPLACEMENT OR SUBSTANTIAL REHAB, ESPECIALLY AROUND THE REAR WINDOW (SEE CLOSE UP). THE FRONT GRILLE HAS BROKE/MISSING PIECES, HOOD FLEW UPON WHEN PREVIOUSLY OWNER DROVE IT HOME WITHOUT IT BEING LATCHED SECURELY SO THAT IT IS CRUMPLED IN THE MIDDLE AND COMPLETELY UNUSABLE, IT CRACKED THE FRONT WINDSHIELD IN SEVERAL PLACES. VEHICLE DOES START, RUN, MOVE FORWARD AND BACKWARD (SUCKING FUEL FROM A CUSTOM ANTI FREEZE GAS JUG IN THE FRONT GRILLE SINCE THE MAIN TANK HAS A LARGE HOLE IN IT). RUNS ROUGH, OBVIOUSLY NEEDS A TUNEUP, I DID CHANGE THE PLUGS. ALL 4 WHEEL CYLINDERS HAVE BEEN REPLACED BUT IT IT STILL LEAKING FROM THE FRONT RUBBER HOSES (WHICH I HAVE ALONG WITH A NEW MASTER CYLINDER). MEANING, NO, YOU CANNOT DRIVE IT!!!!!


THIS CHARGER ALSO, HAS MORE SOLIDIFIED ASPHALT DEBRIS IN THE FENDERWELLS THAN ANY CAR I'VE EVER SEEN! I DON'T KNOW IF THE FIRST OWNER WAS AN ASPHALT PILOT VEHICLE OR WHAT, BUT IT APPEARS HE LIKED TO DRIVE THROUGH THE STUFF, ALSO HAS LADDER BARS INSTALLED. HEADLIGHTS DON'T WORK, NOT SURE IF ANY ELECTRONICS WORK. ODOMETER READS 17024, I WOULD TRUST IT'S ROLLED OVER. HAS BOTH DOOR GLASS PIECES PRESENT, MISSING THE SMALL PASS FORWARD VENT WIND GLASS. HURST SHIFTER ON THE FLOOR.
