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 attractive 1969 Dodge Charger, complete with a gnarly 440 Six Pack, 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. This one is dressed in Plum Crazy Purple, now rendered in modern urethane paint so the shine is improved, especially considering the original color was Gold. The dramatically curved body is in good overall condition with crisp details and solid panel alignment, all critical on a car where every panel needs the one next to it to look right. It's got a few signs of use and age, and it was never a high-end paint job to begin with, but you could hopefully erase some of the issues with a professional cut and buff. Either way, it's still a presentable driver that has a lot going for it. 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. Nice chrome bumpers, a contrasting yellow rear Bumble Bee 440 Six Pack stripe, and R/T badges round out a car that's built to cruise and collect pink slips, not for a trailer.
The lightly custom bucket seat interior is mostly Charger, but now finished with comfortable cloth upholstery that's a lot better than the original sticky vinyl. Vinyl accents make it look neatly tailored and matching black door panels with a taut headliner give the Charger an intimate feel inside, all anchored by black carpets and a black dash pad. Inside the dash are custom bezel panels that add a sleek element to the car, with a custom array of black-faced AutoMeter gauges keeping an eye on the vitals of the best under the hood. More on that later. The factory middle console houses the shifter for the Torqueflight automatic below, and it's adorned with wooden applique that does a fine job adding a touch of sophistication to the cabin. There's no radio, although the symphony from the 440 Six Pack should suffice, and the trick Grant GT steering wheel is mounted on a tilt column can withstand plenty of white-knuckle gripping. Out back, the cavernous trunk features a new mat and relocated battery, and has enough room to fit a Smart Car inside.
Installed in 2003, that's a thumping 440 cubic inch V8 Six Pack under the hood, built for combat and ready to rock. It's nicely detailed and has been upgraded with Holley carburetors, Edelbrock aluminum heads, an Edelbrock Performer intake manifold, HEI ignition system, and a set of long-tube headers. With a solid wall of big block torque behind you, this car always feels fast and throttle response is crisp. The A727 Torqueflight automatic transmission feels robust as you bang through the gears and the tough rear end doesn't seem to mind spinning the tires now and then. The suspension looks to have been lowered slightly which gives it an awesome rake and it's a look to match the soundtrack from the Flowmaster H-pipe dual exhaust system. The floors and axles were painted to match the top of the car, and with 4-wheel disc brakes, this Charger has enough stopping power to actually slow down all that violence under the hood. Polished American Racing Torque Thrust wheels look great on the Charger's sleek bodywork and carry fat 245/60/15 front and 275/60/15 rear BFGoodrich Radial T/A white-letter radials.
These cars are insanely popular and this one gets all the big stuff right: great looks, big engine, lots of power, and a good price. Like I said, if you've read this far, it might already be too late. Call now!
