For Sale: 1969 Dodge Charger in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

If we could, we'd stock all the Streetside Classics showrooms with nothing but 1968-1970 Dodge Chargers. They sell and they sell FAST! So, if you're admiring this dropdead gorgeous 1969 Dodge Charger, complete with a gnarly, built-up 440 V8 engine, a smooth-shifting Torqueflight automatic, 4-wheel disc brakes, and slick Glasurit Blue finish draped over a bespoke interior, pick up the phone and call right now because there's no way it'll be here very long.

Chrysler totally nailed the muscle car look with the Charger, and right out of the gate, the '68s and '69s changed the game forever. According to the previous owner, this one was originally purchased as nothing more than a shell in 2013, and then completely built from the ground up by the professionals at Tommy's Rod Shop in Arlington, TX until it was finally completed in 2017. Dressed in Glasurit Blue Metallic, now rendered in modern urethane basecoat/clearcoat paint so the shine and luster are vastly improved over anything available in 1969. The dramatically curved body is in excellent condition overall with crisp details and laser-straight panel alignment, all critical on a car where every panel needs the one next to it to look right. It's a show-quality finish by pretty much anyone's standard, smooth and uniform throughout, with nary an imperfection to report short of a couple minor blemishes in one or two places. And with just over 3K miles on the build, it still looks very fresh. Cool 1969 details include the little rectangle side marker lights and the new rectangle taillights that inspired the Mopars of today, not to mention the divided grille and hidden headlights, which snap open when you hit the switch. The flying roofline wasn't aerodynamic enough for NASCAR but looks like a million bucks on the street and is one of the Charger's finest features. Bright chrome bumpers and brightwork add flash, although we love that they left off any fake or obnoxious stripes and decals - electing instead to have the mysterious blue paint do all the talking. A contrasting blacked-out front grille and matching tailpanel look adequately sinister, the big racing gas cap has a cool NASCAR vibe, and the oversized alloys add a perfect amount of flash to elevate this Charger's curb appeal through the roof.

The lightly custom bucket seat interior is still mostly Charger inside, but is now finished with comfortable black vinyl upholstery that's a lot better than the original sticky materials from the 1960s. Perforated inserts and a single white piping accent in the seatbacks give the front buckets and matching rear bench a neatly tailored look, while the custom door panels, hand-built center console, and taut headliner were all stitched to match and are in excellent shape. The cabin has a very sporty feel inside, anchored by the reworked dash that includes an unblemished pad and a leather-wrapped tilt steering wheel that's a modern take on the original unit and feels great in the hands of the driver. The custom bezel framed just beyond it is filled with an array of digital gauges that monitor the big block under the hood, and the row of auxiliary switches in the center of the dash look like they belong in an F-16, and because one of them activates the electric exhaust cut-outs, it'll sound like fighter jet, too. The Classic Auto Air A/C controls just above those toggle switches looks very futuristic as well and they manage the HVAC system that blows ice-cold air throughout the cabin. Inside that custom-made center console is a Pioneer touchscreen multi-media stereo, a pair of cupholders, extra storage, and a black anodized B&M automatic shifter. The suede headliner continues the high-end theme, plush carpets with matching floormats insulate the cabin from the outside world, while out back the cavernous trunk was beautifully finished to match rest of the car and features hidden panels that store the relocated battery out of sight.

That's a thumping 440 cubic inch V8 big-block under the hood, built for combat and ready to rock. The block and engine bay are beautifully finished and detailed for show, with matching blue paint on the firewall and inner fenders, HEMI orange enamel on the block, and a set of aluminum valve covers and a matching air cleaner up top. It fires right up and runs incredibly well, further augmented with performance goodies like aluminum heads, a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock aluminum intake, and a March billet serpentine system that drives the accessories. A giant aluminum radiator with dual electric fans keep the giant motor nice and cool, while ceramic-coated Hedman Headers breathe into a throaty Magnaflow X-pipe dual exhaust system that can be turned up to DEAFENING with the electric cut-outs engaged (cutouts not currently operational). With a solid wall of big block torque and huge horsepower behind you, this car always feels fast and throttle response is crisp. The A727 Torqueflight automatic transmission feels robust as you shift through the gears and the tough 8 3/4 rear end is filled with 3.55 gears. The suspension was upgraded with Hotchkis torsion bars and a giant sway bar up front, heavy-duty leaf-springs and upgraded shocks in the rear, along with Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes with drilled-and-slotted rotors at every corner - all of which are high-end performance components that transform this Charger's road manners into that of a manageable restomod. Dope 18-inch Boze forged rims look great on the Charger's sleek bodywork and carry staggered 225/45/18 Bridgestones up front and fat 285/40/18 rear Mickey Thompson meats out back.

'69 Chargers are insanely popular and this one gets all the big stuff right: great looks, big engine, lots of power, and a comfy interior. Like I said, if you've read this far, it might already be too late. Call now!
