131948 / 1968 Dodge Charger Pro-Touring

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/br3a8el You already know that RK Motors Charlotte has a thing for Chargers. You've already seen some of the world's most mind-blowing, potent, flat-out nasty pro-touring Chargers come out of our shop. They've been in magazines and won prizes at all the top shows. And as amazing as they all were, this show-stopping 1968 Dodge Charger pro-touring custom just upped the ante significantly! Combining the best of yesterday, with the best of today and tomorrow, this Charger was built for the muscle car fan that wants the absolute best and doesn't want to share! What if you could have the great looks of a Charger in a Challenger-sized package? We've taken it to the next level not by going wild, but by imagining how the car would look if the factory had built it. You'll have to look twice to see the changes (and they are indeed radical), and to find where the OEM and the modified merge the essence of great customs. Ask any custom builder and he'll tell you that no car is ever finished, and where one owner's ideas stop, a new ones begin, letting the car evolve. Based on the overwhelmingly positive response we got to Maximum Effect, our all-black '70 Charger pro-touring car, we dipped this one in the same vat of sinister Midnight Black Metallic to give it a stealthier appearance and let the radical custom sheet metal do the talking instead of the loud paint. Where the original design was wild for the sake of being wild, this one is focused like a laser now the car looks downright brutal, like it'll bite your hand off if you get too close. Let's start with the custom design elements present in this stunning Charger: Sleek, free-flowing bodylines. The front half was shortened 10.5 inches, and the rear 10 inches Roof was chopped 2 inches, moved ahead 4 inches, and the A-Pillar raked back, creating a one-of-a-kind look Each panel on the car has been hand-fabricated Trunk is 5000 series aluminum, filled with expandable sound deadening foam to keep things quiet inside Quarter panels have been shortened and restyled to flow with the doors. Doors have been restyled with new body lines and a shaved appearance Fenders have been shortened, restyled and restructured Hood is custom-made, with a steel frame, wrapped in aluminum and filled with expanding sound deadening foam The rear of the car is fitted and shortened The custom trunk floor and frame rail have been restructured. Torque boxes have been added for strength and rigidity and the floor and tunnel have been reconfigured, strengthened and redesigned to fit the new drive-train Midnight Black Metallic is a custom-mixed paint that was applied by the experts at our own RK Motors restoration shop (you know, the guys who have won top honors at virtually every show we've entered) Custom aluminum CNC-milled gas cap Custom aluminum fuel cell Other OEM design elements have been retained, however. From the front grille to the chrome rear bumper, that's original stuff, again to emphasize the tremendous amount of metalwork that went into reshaping the body. An original Charger grille and hidden headlights have been fitted between the custom-made fenders and hood, exactly the way the factory would have done it. Out back, the unique 1968 Charger round taillights have been retained and fit right in, again forcing you to stand back and think hard about what, exactly, has been modified (look at the car in profile and you'll definitely see the changes).
