Classic Auto Mall
6180 Morgantown Road
Purchased by its first family for use as a fun daily driver, this sweet White Hat Special was driven regularly to church, and various and sundry utilitarian day to day chores. Originally a 1 of 5 produced cars with a 225ci slant 6 cylinder engine, and a Q5 color code (translating to Turquoise with White accenting stripe on the back) it led its bucolic urban life. Fast forward to our current consigner who purchased the car already done as a 440ci V8 R/T tribute then stepped it up a notch with 572ci of Hemi power and then some we give you the 1969 Dodge Charger RT Clone...and then some, READ ON!
Bumpers have been re-chromed with a 3 step process and all trim has been polished to like new, so on the bling side of this car we are fully covered. All this is attached to straight steel panels all reworked to perfection then bathed in Bright Turquoise Poly paint, that you can don your scuba gear prior to looking closely, its deep baby! Also adorned with the original factory style stickers in white, the rear is wrapped with the wide white band and Turquoise R/T. Large "flying buttress" styled B pillars swoop rearward, framing the rear glass which tilts at a lesser angle than the pillars and give the back of the roof the inset look. Upfront the correct hidden badged R/T headlight panels are in a split grille with surrounding trimmings and one of those triple dipped bumpers below. A chromed side view mirror hangs from either door, and on the driver's side is a large hinged fill cap on the top of the rear quarter. BF Goodrich supplies the rubber which wraps Cragar SS style rims on all 4 corners. I'll call this the "Turquoise that destroys". Read on kids for further explanation.
Consigner states that all the original interior seats have been re-upholstered with snow white vinyl all to original factory specs, they look brand new. Front buckets in high back form, complete with some chromed surrounding trimmings on the headrests, and stitched rectangular buttoned in the center inserts. Door panels are also white, very clean and all correct circular machined stainless Charger badge on the sills. A true to original wood wrapped steering wheel has a Chrysler corporate emblem central button. An aftermarket gauge cluster lines up for you on the back dash front, and all spit shined and gleaming dials and knobs are present and accounted for upfront. Gauges now use modern sensors for accurate readings and have backlit indigo blue LCD lighting. A real wood pistol grip handle shift lever is in the center of the restored console, now with real veneer in lieu of the factory mac tac factory material. Below the dash is an aftermarket stereo system with a 6 disc in trunk CD changer. This unit can easily be removed if it does not meet your original standards as the factory radio is still present and accounted for. Black carpet floods the floors and has fitted Charger R/T floor mats embroidered in the matching Q5 Turquoise color way. Pure Turquoise poise ladies and gentlemen.
Under the hood is the turquoise that destroys as we shake hands with a 572ci HEMI V8 sporting an aluminum block. Aluminum heads are also on and include a fully forged rotating assembly inside. A Harland Sharp rollerized valve train is inside. On top is an aluminum dual 4-barrel intake upgraded with twin Holley vacuum secondary street warrior electric choke carbs, topped off with a factory style air cleaner assembly and wrinkle finish valve covers. Other neat-o features are a full MSD ignition, 4 core aluminum radiator with mechanical fan, March Enterprise serpentine pulley setup and full length tuned headers and SS exhaust with factory style chrome tips. On the back is a 4-speed manual transmission designated A833, and way back a Dana 60 rear axle.
Done just right baby bear, all evenly rustproof coated, and tight as a drum on the structural side of things. An upgraded flywheel and clutch is on to accommodate the bit of extra power from those 572 cubes, and to bring her to a stop SSBC 4 wheel disc brakes are on. Torsion bars provide the front suspension ride and leaf springs are on the rear making for a comfortable ride that allows the drivetrain to put power to the ground.
The dyno specs are all in the documentation, but we had to see for ourselves, so our resident muscle car shade tree mechanic and decoder expert took her for a spin. All was working perfectly and his only comment when returning was "This car is one bad mu*#er Fu*@er!"
A Charger R/T and then some touched by the hands of a passionate restorer who has a need for speed and penchant for power. Nearly perfect in every way, right out of the showroom, then to the restorer who only made it better, by a quarter mile!
