Thoughts of the legendary charger immediately bring to mind a near perfect blend of basic transportation and big performance. See, back in the '60s when muscle cars packed on premiums to increase margins, dodge continued to honor the tenets of the cheap speed movement. In fact, the second-generation charger was carefully redesigned to stay firmly grounded in the realm of affordability. Take this handsome coupe for example. Combining 440 cubic inches of magnum v8 with a fun 4-speed and a detailed, ground-up restoration, it's an excellent example of why vintage detroit metal will always be incredibly appealing. Take a look at this impressive mopar! Bodywork/trim beginning life as solid detroit steel, this classic charger proved a fine foundation for building some awesome american muscle. Once that intense labor resulted in good fit and finish, correct plum crazy 2-stage was dressed in a bumblebee war stripe and bold hood call-outs. Replaced during its thorough build, every bit of this mopar's bright ornamentation presents extremely well. At the front of the car, a chrome-trimmed grille hangs an off-set "charger r/t" script between hidden headlamps and crystal-clear parking lights. Behind that grille, a scalloped hood plants small turn indicators in front of crisp glass that's framed by satin wipers and an ornate pit stop fuel filler. At the sides of that hood, a polished driver's mirror reflects clean marker lamps, straight wheel frames, flowing "charger" emblems and bold r/t door scoops. And at the back of the car, a monochromatic valance centers a second "charger r/t" script between factory taillights, a polished bumper and polished exhaust tips. Oxygen whips through a dual-snorkel air cleaner to a big holley 4-barrel, which is perched on a tall edelbrock intake. At the front of that plane, a traditional distributor sequences spark between a chrome blaster 2 coil and loomed mopar electronic suppression cables. At the sides of those cables, mirrored mopar valve covers reflect coated hooker competition headers. Cooling is supplied by a restored radiator, which feeds pliable hoses that are cased in modern screw clamps. And a spry mopar battery kicks everything in to motion. Aesthetically, the car's plum crazy engine bay looks great, from its factory decals and old school fluid reservoir all the way to its large milodon oil pan. Thoughtful accessories abound, including polished fuel lines, a polished breather and a polished dipstick. And functionally, a quick turn of the key results in a rumbling high-performance idle, hot or cold. Drivetrain/suspension this dodge's chassis specs leave little question as to why chrysler's b-body architecture was such a huge hit with performance car fans. Behind the magnum, a familiar a833 4-speed twists power to a chrome-trimmed dana 60 that's finished with a sure grip differential and choice 3. 54 gears. Below that proven drivetrain, a familiar front torsion bar and rear leaf suspension has been completely rebuilt to factory specifications. Stops are provided by power-assisted drums. Exhaust is handled by oversized pipes, which jettison cooked dinosaurs through an x-shaped crossover and throaty dynomax mufflers. Over-restored floors, layered in glossy plum crazy 2-stage, sport everything from fresh fluid lines to a fresh fuel tank. And power meets the pavement through chrome magnum 500s, which spin 235/70r15 bf goodrich radial t/as in front of 255/70r15 bf goodrich radial t/as. At the sides of those seats, weather-free door panels hang chrome-laden armrests under fresh stainless trim and sporty charger badging. At the bottom of those panels, like-new carpet is protected by r/t-themed floor mats. A traditional pistol grip shifter leads a convenient buddy seat. In front of the driver, a monochromatic steering wheel laps a wood-trimmed dash, which hangs rebuilt rallye gauges beside modern jvc audio. And behind the cockpit, a matted trunk hides a full-size spare tire under crisp xplod deck speakers. With a storied drivetrain, a solid restoration and striking aesthetics, this super cool mopar combines big swagger with big appeal.
