FMC is proud to offer one of the most iconic American Muscle cars in history. To add to that, this Matching Numbers Charger RT/SE is in nothing less than Showroom condition after a flawless restoration.
The story starts on March 7th, 1969 when this car was purchased at Del Amo Dodge in Torrance California by Carl Epperheimer, also of Torrance California. The original window sticker notes the price of this highly optioned RT/SE is $5053.25 however, Mr Epperheimer only paid $4118.96 for knowingly buying the car as a demonstration vehicle with 5780 miles of "demonstrating" already on it. A discount of nearly $1000 (20%) was quite significant in 1969. The car was still sold as NEW with the full factory warranty. Good deal for Mr E!
After a full multi year restoration in 2007, less than 1000 miles has been added to the odometer since. The actual mileage is just 64047. Nearly $140,000 has been put into the impeccable restoration which looks as good today as it did in 2007. The restoration brought the car back to "as good as new" stock condition right down to the very rare color of Light Bronze (Chrysler Code T3) The engine is the original matching numbers 440 Magnum pushing 375hp along with the original 3speed Torque Flight automatic transmission and 3.23 gears. The original build sheet, window sticker and invoice show the incredible options ordered on this factory RT/SE including air conditioning, 8-track player, power windows, power disc brakes and much more. (Photos of these 3 documents are from copies and we DO HAVE the originals). We have multiple videos showing every option working perfectly including the clock with second hand. Serious inquiries can see them all.
This is a California born and raised true Black Plate car.
Documentation includes 3 bins full of original paperwork (some shown), approx 100 restoration photos, original owners letters to and from The Chrysler Corporation, original titles (copies), framed vinyl top piece signed by restoration team, Galen Govier certification, the fully restored original Black Plate with original '69 plate sicker (shown) and much more. All receipts from the restoration are inside a 4" binder along with another 4" binder full of restoration photos and another 4" binder with documentation of its history and on and on and on. We have never seen such a complete set of records such as this.
To say that this car is flawless may still be an understatement. it is top to bottom perfect in every way! Appearance, condition, paint, chrome, interior seating, dash and dash panel, headliner, glass, undercarriage, functionality of options, lighting inside & out, starting, stopping, driving ...... Did I miss anything? If I did, thats flawless too! We welcome anyone to come see for themselves or take a look at the more than 125 HD photos we've included here. As always, our photos are not enhanced in any way and can be blown up to zoom in as close as you like. What you see is what you get. Enjoy!
