This '68 R/T is the real deal.
Ask anyone who's into muscle cars which car of the 1960s and 70s best represents that era, and the Dodge Charger is likely to get a fair few mentions. The Charger has become an American Icon thanks to its leading roles in movies such as Cannonball, The Fast and the Furious, and the famous Dukes of Hazzard TV series, and classic restored versions tend to sell for massive amounts of money these days. Sure, a modern Charger SRT Hellcat is cool, but give us a 440-cubic-inch V8 and a four-speed manual transmission and we're smiling. If you're as big a fan as us, we've got good news: MGM Classic Cars is selling a pristine 1968 example. The catch? It's going for close to $200k.
MGM Classic Cars calls this the "holy grail" of Chargers, and we tend to agree. This 1968 Charger is a true R/T and features a triple black color scheme, meaning it has a black exterior paint job, a black vinyl top, and an all-black interior, just like the muscle car gods intended. The exterior also features the iconic red R/T stripe around the rear end, and a set of Magnum 500 steel wheels. The car underwent a four-year-long restoration and looks spotless from top to bottom. Every exterior trim piece looks brand new, and every bit of chrome shines extra bright. The interior also underwent a complete refresh, and features a brand new headliner, door cards, recovered seats, a Hurst shifter, and a spotless dashboard and gauge cluster which shows 387 miles on the odometer since the restoration was completed.
Under the hood you will no longer find the 440 cubic-inch engine. In its place sits a period-correct 426 cubic inch Hemi V8 which sends its power to the rear wheels via a four-speed A833 manual transmission and a Dana 60 rear end with Sure-Grip limited-slip differential. This engine setup is rated at 425 horsepower and 490 lb-ft of torque, so you're guaranteed to smoke the tires without much effort. This Charger R/T also features power brakes and power steering for added practicality. MGM Classic Cars is selling this rare beauty for $195,000. All you need to do after buying this Charger is to line it up next to some unsuspecting Toyota Supra.
