For Sale: 1978 Dodge Charger in Palmetto, Florida

Vehicle Description

Please visit for additional photos, information, and a video. Check out this one-of-a-kind 1978 Dodge Charger SE! In 1978, the last year for the B-Body Mopars, there were only 2,735 Chargers produced. That makes this Mopar muscle car a rare treat! On top of that, this Charger has had a no-expense spared performance build that includes a built 440 that is sure to get your heart pumping. The engine is built with Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum heads, an Edelbrock Torker intake, Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, billet distributor, and full-length headers flowing through true dual exhaust exiting through SuperTrapp baffled tips. The exhaust also has an electric cutout if you really want to let this baby rumble! The engine numbers are 6T 440 E, which comes back to a 1976 440 CID with a cast crankshaft. An additional electric fan is controlled by a switch and helps keep the big block cool. The engine is ready to show with braided heater hoses, chrome radiator hoses, chrome valve covers, chrome brackets, chrome vacuum canister and lots of mirrored pieces on the cowl, inner fenders and radiator support. Pair that with custom pinstriping under the hood and you are sure to draw a crowd every time you raise the hood. Underneath the car you will find even more high-end parts like a Holley fuel pump, polished sway bar, ladder bars, and adjustable coilover shocks in the rear. Power disc brakes in the front and power steering make this car pretty easy to handle, even as a built muscle car. The exterior is painted a tough Gun Metal Gray with red pinstriping and gray half vinyl roof. Pair that with alloy wheels and BF Goodrich radial tires and people are going to wonder what is lurking under that long hood. Slide inside and you will be impressed with how clean the gray cloth interior is. A brand-new headliner surrounds a custom overhead console with switches controlling the lights in the added AutoMeter gauges, and power to the power seat. A chrome steering wheel has been added along with a custom center console that houses the modern AM/FM/CD player and a B&M ratchet shifter. Apart from the console and the extra gauges, the interior is left pretty much the way it left the factory in 1978. Comfortable bucket seats with a flip down armrest makes this car a pleasure for longer drives. Sound deadener has been added as well so the ride inside isn't overwhelmingly loud, even with the cutouts open. The trunk is also show ready with a custom mirrored trunk lid insert with the Mopar M and 440 logo. Savvy eyes will spot the Sniper nitrous tank that has been painted to match the car. It is not hooked up but is there if someone wants to give this Charger even more pep in its step! Look through the photos and watch the video and you are sure to be impressed with the quality of build on this cool 1978 Charger SE muscle car!
