Vehicle Description

I bought this 1968 Dodge Charger RT 440 Magnum-A/T-323 Sure Grip-VIN# XS29L8B****** in 1998.  1998 was my 50th year on earth so I needed a mid-life toy. 

We did a cosmetic restoration in 2005 but left the under hood original.

I have put about 16,000 miles on the car since 1998.  We replaced the dash instrument panel with a NOS unit including the Tic Toc Tac in 2007.  Everything works. The old odometer showed around 35,000 and the new one is now a little under 5,000 miles.  I don’t know for sure what the actual miles are, but it is original and runs great.  It is hard to believe that it has 140,000 on it, but it’s possible.

For the most part, the parts are original or have been replaced with original equipment or reproduction parts. However, we have upgraded a few parts:

  • Mopar Performance Electronic Ignition Conversion Kit installed October 2002. The control unit is installed under the console.
  • Edelbrock 750 carburetor installed in 2007.  I have the original Carter 750 carburetor that will need to be rebuilt.
  • Grant wood steering wheel installed in 2010.  I have the original steering wheel.
  • Edelbrock EAS shocks installed in 2008.
  • Torque Thrust 2 alloy wheels installed in 2003. Fronts are 15x7 and rears are 15x8.  I do not have the original 14” magnum wheels.

The car has some mechanical issues that we can talk about.  Some buyers will want to source their own parts and do the repairs themselves:       . 

  • Power steering pump leak.  Needs a new pump or rebuild the existing original pump.  Power steering works great, just leaks.
  • An oil leak but only leaks down about a quart every 6 months.
  • Needs plug wires.  Runs fine but wires are 25 years old.
  • Runs hot in heavy traffic,  Runs right on the thermostat temp at highway speeds (even when being hammered) but heats up to high normal  range in traffic. I live in the Arizona outback so it is not an issue for me but will be for city dwellers.

The car has not been detailed under hood or undercarriage since I bought it in 1998.  The car is solid but these areas look like they are about 51 years old.

Vehicle transport will be the responsibility of the buyer.   I will work with the transporter to get the car to a pickup point near my home.
