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).

135624 / 1970 Dodge Charger R/T
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/go5s55o The basic formula for a show-stopping pro-touring car is simple: Start with a popular car from the muscle car era and fill it with quality modern components until every compromise has been eliminated. Of course, perfecting that formula takes a rare combination of time, talent, and vision. Built by the craftsmen at the RKM Performance Center, this stunning 1970 Dodge Charger R/T is one of the lucky few backed by all three, resulting in a no-holds-barred build ready to dominate on the show-field and the auto-cross track. While many second generation Chargers shine bright with High Impact colors, this R/T offers a more sinister presence thanks to a mirror-like coat of DBU9700 black paint accented by grey hood and tail stripes - a color picked from the Lamborghini paint charts. The car shows well from every angle, offering miles of depth and plenty of luster. The body is finished with show quality components including new chrome, stainless, and glass. On the doors, modern Hemi badges hint as what lives under the hood. Inside the car, classic Mopar styling reins. From the carpet to the headliner, every piece has been treated with equal attention. New high-back bucket seats from Legendary Auto Interiors are wrapped in fresh leather, surrounded by new door panels and a pristine wood grain-topped console in the middle. From the driver seat, the view is period correct with original gauges in the cluster and a wood-rimmed three-spoke steering wheel in front. The main upgrade is a Pioneer AM/FM/CD head unit which sends signal to all new Pioneer speakers. Lift the striped hood and pristine engine bay comes into view. The firewall and inner fenders wear grey paint while two braces run the length of the bay, tying into the frame below. In the center the original 440 is replaced by an Indy 426 Hemi crate engine. The engine makes a Dyno-proven 506hp with help from fresh internals, CNC-ported heads, and Hilborn injection. At the front, an attractive March serpentine system spins accessories including a polished air conditioning compressor and power steering pump. Turn the key and the Hemi snarls through long tube headers connected to a true dual Exhaust system with Dynomax mufflers. Underneath the car, a Tremec TKO-500 five-speed manual transmission makes quick work of shifts before sending power to a stout Dana 60 rear end filled with 3.54 gears. Power is transferred to the rear wheels through new Moser axles. Behind the differential, a custom stainless fuel tank with an internal fuel pump takes care of feeding the Hemi. Around the drivetrain, the suspension starts with a new Magnumforce tubular K-member with 1.25-inch control arms, QA1 coilovers, and a fresh rack and pinion setup. The back remains traditional with leaf springs and QA1 shocks. Braking is handled by a power-assisted Wilwood setup with 12.9-inch rotors that tuck neatly behind 18 and 19-inch Forgeline wheels. Built by the best for the most discriminating muscle car fans the scene has to offer, this Charger is the perfect opportunity to enjoy the rewards of a fresh world-class pro-tourer without endless calls to vendors, builders, and banks.

136008 / 1969 Dodge Charger
THIS VEHICLE HAS SOLD! https://www.rkmotors.com/vehicles/2750/1969-dodge-charger Wrapping a 2-year rotisserie restoration around a 4-speed driveline and 440 cubic inches of fire-breathing V8, this sinister Charger is the quintessential gearhead power suit! Looking for some tough MoTown metal that’s tempered to perfection? Look no further! The beneficiary of a comprehensive rotisserie restoration that was commissioned by Silverado Enterprises of Sarasota, Florida, this slick MoPar prowls the boulevard as a highly appealing resto-mod that’s clean, mean and ready to roar! The Charger’s professional rebirth began when it was located as a complete, barely running survivor that graced a shed in Fargo, North Dakota. Once the car had been transported to a warmer home, it received a full acid dip that revealed a solid fuselage which retained 99% of its original metal. After a few repairs we’re made to its driver’s door, that metal was bathed in glossy 2-stage. That 2-stage was highlighted by factory trim that was professionally restored and lovingly polished. And in late 2015, this Dodge made its official blacktop debut. Toss the hood and you’ll find 440 cubic inches of 1971 Chrysler big block that was professionally rebuilt by Venice Auto Machine of Venice, Florida. Behind that mill, a proven A833 4-speed twists a tough 8.75-inch axle, which spins a fresh Sure Grip differential around big, 3.90 gears. Under that drivetrain, an upgraded Firm Feel suspension aligns cushy air shocks and a beefy rear sway bar behind tight power steering. Abrupt stops are supplied by four power-assisted calipers, which squeeze drilled and slotted rotors. At the corners of the chassis, attractive Boze wheels spin Michelin Pilot Super Sports. And, between the doors, you’ll find a fresh Legendary interior that was installed by Hoyts Auto Upholstery of Sarasota, Florida. Built for the sophisticated muscle car fan, this Charger is the perfect opportunity to bask in the spoils of owning a fresh, fully sorted classic.

134764 / 1970 Dodge Charger 500
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/q9xvwkc The beneficiary of a professional, ground-up restoration, this brutal Charger is a no-holds-barred custom that's ready to parade the show field and dominate the stoplight! After spending most of its life as a blue-collar driver, this awesome road warrior was the perfect starting point for an outrageous, ground-up restoration that mixed a killer Indy big block with classic Mopar attitude. The car's exceptionally solid body was stripped to bare metal and fitted with high quality replacement panels that, thanks to a thorough block-sanding, form a virtually flawless profile. Once that profile was completely clean and fully prepped, deep PPG Black was detailed with red war paint and sealed under a silky clearcoat. And the result is a positively evil muscle car that tempers an old school, no-nonsense demeanor with new age panache! What do you do when you have a sweet Mopar muscle car that needs a heart transplant? You call the fine folks at Indy Cylinder Head and order something akin to this Charger's 500 cubic inch Street Wedge V8! Thanks to its balanced rotating assembly, and a roster of top notch ancillaries, this Dodge now moves to the tune of 630 horsepower and 575 lb./ft. of torque. Behind that powerful Indy, a new Tremec TKO600 5-speed, which wears a sturdy QuickTime bellhousing, twists thrust to a rugged Chrysler rear end. Inside that pumpkin, a familiar Sure Grip differential spins around beefy, 3.91 gears. That awesome drivetrain rides on an independent front and triangulated rear suspension, which mixes modern power steering with Ridetech StrongArm control arms and a Ridetech RidePro air system. Stops come courtesy of Wilwood, which utilizes bright red calipers to squeeze four drilled and slotted rotors. And power hits the pavement via gorgeous Billet Specialties 5-spokes, which spin 225/45ZR18 BF Goodrich g-Force T/As in front of 285/40ZR18 BF Goodrich g-Force T/As. Swivel this Charger's solid-closing doors and you'll find a substantially modified interior that's mixes classy tan leather with textured black vinyl. The front bucket and rear bench seats are covered in showroom-fresh hides that display small "SRT" logos. In front of those seats, a clean dash hangs white-face telemetry and a prominent "SRT DESIGN" badge above a 7-inch Kenwood head unit. Below that dash, a custom console centers a Hurst Pistol Grip shifter inside a stylish, driver-oriented contour. And in front of the driver, a Billet Specialties Outlaw spins around a polished tilt steering column. Built for the most discerning muscle car fans on the planet, this Charger is the perfect opportunity to bask in the spoils of owning a fresh, world class classic.
