If the movie “Bullitt” could be reshot all over again, the bad guys would likely upgrade from their Charger R/T 440 to this one. JAMZ Muscle Carz in Lexington, Missouri, completed a rotisserie restoration on this 1968 Charger in 2017, lending it not only a renewed life, but vastly improving upon the original concept with modern Mopar equipment. Under the hood is a 2013 5.7L Hemi engine with a standalone ECM from Hotwire and TTI Headers with 3-inch exhaust. A Tremec 5-speed transmission and clutch sends power to the rear wheels. Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes with Hydroboost and a Reilly Motorsports front suspension and 4-link rear end help keep the beast in control. Not only is it built to move forward very quickly, but it can turn and stop with relative efficiency as well, thanks to the chassis, suspension and brake work implied upon it. Wide, low-profile tires and custom wheels help too. Inside, the Charger is relatively stock except for the Vintage Air, Dakota Digital custom gauges, custom steering wheel and Retro Sound stereo system—complete with Bluetooth, Kenwood subwoofers, tweeters and amplifier—ensuring tunes won’t be drowned out by the powerful engine. Presented in black inside and out, the Charger emits a relatively no-nonsense aura, one that recommends that it is best left alone. The lowered stance, subdued brightwork and all-business demeanor takes the look to another level rarely seen of the 1968-1970 Chargers. With the modern Chrysler Hemi motivating it, power is smooth, linear and relatively efficient, yet delivers a punch that’s unmistakably all muscle. The 1968-1970 Chargers were arguably the most popular and recognizable of the breed, featured extensively in television and movies, their big, unapologetic, muscular image bringing another dimension to the films and characters who drove them. While we all rooted for Steve McQueen as Lieutenant Bullitt, this Charger would have likely made his Mustang cry all day long.
