For sale in our Houston showroom is this amazing 1968 Dodge Charger R/T Tribute. The pictures hardly do it justice as this car has had over $150K in restoration work done on it during a total restoration completed just 18 months ago. Every nut bolt and screw has been paid attention to and every piece has been detailed to perfection. Everything works including the original clock! It started out life with a 383 CID V8 car but now this R/T is equipped with the venerable 440 CID Big Block Wedge V8 with a serious cam upgrade. If you like the sound of a big bumpsticks lopey idle this one will put you in heaven. With ony 850 miles on the powertrain since the engine and TorqueFlite 727 automatic transmission were rebuilt its only just getting broken in. All of the resto work was completed by Hot Rod Joes in Lafayette LA including the powertrain rebuild. There is NO rust on this car and it has a brand new trunk pan and rear quarter panels. This beast is bathed in an eye-catching red paint job thats so deep youd think you could dive in and swim in this red sea. Combine that with the white bumblebee stripes around its tail and it will get you stares wherever you go in it. The engine bay is so well-detailed with EVERY painted surface being done in a beautiful glossy finish that one could just stare in there for hours marveling at the attention to detail. In there youll see its massive aluminum radiator with twin electric cooling fans (to reduce parasitic horsepower loss in addition to improving cooling vs its original belt-driven fan) and a chromed Powermaster alternator to keep its Optima battery charged. The undercarriage is so clean that should you choose to put the car on a rotisserie and flip it over you could eat off of it and not worry about getting contaminants in your food. Crazy-well-executed would be an apt description for this car. Inside youll find everything as nice (or nicer) than when it rolled off of the assembly line Hamtramck. With immaculate white vinyl seating that looks like its never been sat upon and new black carpet on the floors its a magical experience to sit in this car and enjoy its Clarion SiriusXM head unit (with Bluetooth) and Classic AutoAire R134 AC system: the creature comforts they provide its occupants may make it very difficult to disembark from this ride indeed...But its an even more magical experience firing it up and taking it for a spin - everything about this B-bodys driveability is a dream: from the power its Wedge generates to the way it shifts rides and stops makes for the stuff that dreams are made of. It whoas as good as it goes with a set of disc brakes at all four corners with beefy 255/50 ZR-17 NITTO 550s on the rear and 245/45 ZR-17s on the front wrapped around some custom aluminum Mopar-style rallye wheels. Combine that with all new bushings and it also handles better than any 68 Charger R/T ever did from the factory.
