1969 Dodge Charger R/T SE

During the early-1960s, automakers were exploring new ideas in the personal luxury and specialty car segments. Chrysler, fast to enter the specialty car market, selected their Dodge Division to enter the marketplace with a mid-size B-bodied sporty car to fit between the "pony car" Ford Mustang and "personal luxury" Ford Thunderbird. The intention was to create a fastback look while sharing as much existing company hardware as possible. The Coronet-based Charger that resulted" was introduced in mid-season of the 1966 model year "in retaliation to the Rambler Marlin, Ford Mustang, and Plymouth Barracuda".

Beautiful beyond words from just about any angle, the 1969 Charger styling is arguably one of Chrysler's shining moments. A full restoration with color change, and a few minor changes to the trim, as well as a beefed-up carburetor, and we have a shower and a goer in this version of the Charger. By the way R/T refers to road/track (no "and" in the middle) which was a higher performance package, and SE is an upgraded trim package that included wood steering wheel and dash, leather inserts in the seats, and chrome rocker moldings. R/T SE.


Born with Gold Metallic paint, it is now bathed in Lemon Twist Yellow, and shows nicely. A black vinyl sports top with "flying buttress" type C pillar supports culminating on the rear in pointy style emulating a fastback but sans window. Another sporty feature added after manufacture, is the transverse stripe wrapping itself around the rear, and showing the R/T logo in yellow knockout type. 15 x 7 chrome magnum wheels are seen on all 4 corners, as well as hidden headlights up front in the split grille, and chrome tips peeking from the rear of this very nice muscle car.


A swing of the door and it reveals the R/T SE promised wood steering wheel and dash with a smattering of wood within the center console that runs from dash to rear of buckets. The dash presents very clean, and the tri spoke chrome supported steering wheel is unmarred. Buckets show a square button stitched pattern and are leather inserts with vinyl bolsters. The rear bench has the same theme, and door panels show very nicely as well. A fairly tight headliner has a few stretch marked areas at the end of the pointy C pillars but is in very nice condition. Slightly faded black carpet is noted on the hump, and front has yellow logo Charger floor mats above the carpeting.


A 440ci Magnum V8 (with a stamping E 440 1 3 HP2) is topped with a new 6-pack carburetor set up that can throw massive amounts of fossils and air into the engine at once and produces 375hp. A blasted rust-free exhaust manifold can be seen and also noted is the completely restored engine bay. A numbers matching A727 3-speed automatic Torqueflite transmission is attached to the rear of the mill. This throws power back to an 8.75 rear.


Very clean and pristine with no surface rust, new exhaust, perfect floor pans and solid as a rock frame. Bottom of doors at rockers are rust free as well. Power drum brakes are all around, and a torsion bar front suspension and rear leaf spring suspension can be seen.

Overall a very nicely presenting muscle car from Chrysler ca.1969. A color change, rear transverse stripe and a six pack to the top of the engine, and you are ready to do some smokkin' of the tires. Can you say doughnut?!
