HISTORY: This car was born in the St Louis, issori plant and lived in in San Antonio, exas for many years before Keith boutht it and brought it to Tennessee in September of 2002. It was built with Go Mango Orange paint, hite vinal roof and a 318 engine. The vinal roof was off and car and repainted when Keith bought it, o rust at all on top where roof was. Keith did paint eh Confederate battle flag on the roof. He replaced the 318 engine with a 440 out of a Georgia police car, e did rebuild it. he rebuilt the rear-end, t was a very high ratio, e put a 3.73 ring gear and pinion set as well as bearings. His friend at Pro Torque transmission shop rebuilt the transmission. He has less then 300 miles on all the rebuilt drive train. After driving the car 2 or 3 times a year he has decided to sell it and buy a new car. He did store the car with air plane car, ecause is does not die and damage parts.

VIN: XH29G0G227093 and it does match the VIN PLATE.
HOW IS THE ENGINE: Its a 440 that Keith bought near Covington, eorgia. Covington is near where the first few episodes of Dukes of Hazzard was flimed. It was stored in a barn and past owner said it was out of a Georgia police car. The block was cracked due to fozen water so we replaced it with a goodblock from a local MOPAR mechanic. We did use the heads, rank, ods and other parts of the original engine. Take a look at the picture of the giant exhaust manifolds. We put new rings, earings, iming chain, iming gears, am, ifters and oil pump in the engine. He also had a local auto machine shop rebuilt the original heads that we got from the police engine. The engine runs good and I see no leaks, ear no knocks or rattles and see no blue smoke. Keith says the engine has 300 miles on it at the very most.
HOW IS THE TRANSMISSION? Its a 727 Torque Flite. Keith had it rebuilt by his friend at Pro Torque Transimmions. The 727 is a 3 speed automatic.
HOW IS THE REAR-END? I hear no whines or growls, ts is rebuilt with 3.73 gears with less then 300 miles.
HOW IS THE GLASS? Windshield was replaces by Keith and looks new with new rubber. Side glass old, ut good.
HOW IS THE CHROME? New front and rear bumper not long ago. Door handles original and pitted, as cap good, ut has small pitts.
HOW IS THE PAINT JOB? When you look down the sides of the car it is very straight, see no dents, o dings and no rust bubbles. The paint has a very good shine. If you look with a critical eye you can see that the top and hood are a little different shade, ut not bad enought for Keith to redo them. Its a good paint job, ust like most and not perfect, ou can find a spec if you look for it. No one other than us has ever said a thing about it, its always the hit of the local car show".
AIR CONDITIONING and HEAT is a new Vintage air system. Old heater box is available if you want it.
WHEELS AND TIRES: Turbine wheels with BF Goodrich tires. 14 inch on front and 15 inch on rear to get the stance Keith liked. Tires are 235/60s.

PARKING BRAKE WORKS, ut you have to pull it up with your foot,

PLEASE HERE THIS! This is a real nice car, ut its no perfect show queen to haul to the show in a trailer. Keith built it to drive and enjoy. Do your reserch on 68, 9 and 70 Dodge Chargers. The prices are crazy high and going up. My reward for making it back from Viet Nam in 1969 was a new 1969 Dodge Charger so you know I love them.
