Rarity, originality, and pure muscle - that's what makes this 1969
Dodge Charger so irresistible. So this is one of those moments
where if you're a Mopar fan, you're going to go over all the
details to see just how close you can get the features list down to
While the General Lee has cemented the '69 Charger as a true icon, this one goes in a very different direction. It's a more refined presentation thanks to the factory-correct Sunfire Yellow. And this premium appearance is a great complement to the Charger's thoughtful elements like Coke-bottle curves, form-hugging bumpers, and flying buttresses. Of course, with the hidden headlights, scalloped hood with matching marks in the doors, and integrated rear spoiler, this hardtop can never totally hide its aggression. Also, you'll notice in the trim tag that this is an A41 White Hat Special - a designation only available in '69.
The roof provides a nice preview of the black interior - after all on a pillarless hardtop, there are going to be plenty of people wanting to peek inside. And when they do, they'll be reminded that Dodge was great at interiors. Those button-top seats are quite comfortable, and while this is intermediate-sized for 1969, today that means plenty of room for family and friends. When it's just you, the middle seat of the front bench folds down to create a bucket-like comfort. Plus, the thin wood-rimmed steering wheel will always get your blood pumping the moment you grip it. This coupe came from the factory with features like an AM radio and air conditioning - and the provisions for these are still in place.
Under the hood is the best distinction of them all - it's the original 383 cubic-inch V8. After all, you know we all love the sight on an engine bay filled with big block power, and it only gets better when you tell people that this Magnum came direct from the St. Louis plant. And while the presentation is quite correct, there are also some helpful upgrades. For example, there's a four-barrel carburetor help this big V8 inhale deeply, and there's an aluminum radiator to keep everything running cool. Out on the road, you have the right features, including a thick sway bar up front, the grip of Tiger Paw tires on the classic Mopar Mag wheels, and even the original TorqueFlight A727 three-speed automatic transmission.
This coupe has the distinction and originality to be a great one to take to the next level. And we all love a rare Mopar. So don't miss out, call today!
