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:
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: .
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.
