68 Dodge Charger - Runs and drives great. Low mile 360 V8, 727 Trans. One of the previous owners installed rear quarter panel lwr repair panels. They are a bit wavy. He also welded in sheetmetal panels in the floors. Good job tho, no leaks. I did a repair on pin holes in the trunk right off the POR-15 website. At some point someone installed a 4 spd trans so the clutch pedal and shifter hump are still in the car. When I got it I drove it as a 4 spd for awhile but the engine gave out so I installed the 360 and 727 auto. The Charger was originally a 383 auto SE, gold exterior. The R/T emblems were on it when I got it. A few years back I also installed new poly front bushings, 11" brakes, u-joints, rear Hemi springs, front door panels, carpet and headliner. The chrome, rear side turn signals, wipers and other parts are in the trunk. The only things I can think of that are missing are the hood turn signal lights and the 2 tiny chrome angle pieces that join the top rail chrome with the windshield chrome. Speedometer is unhooked because it jumps all over the place but I have a replacement.The trunk seal and vent window seals will dribble water in a hard rain. I have enjoyed this car for years and hate to see her go but she needs to go to someone with the capability to finish her out right or just drive the crap out of her like she sits. I've tried to describe the condition of the car as best I can but in case I missed something the Charger is being auctioned as needing total restoration due to the fact every body panel needs some kind of attention, dents, waves, paint etc. Seat covers are original and showing threads. Wheels are old and showing some surface rust. So bid accordingly. If you are not up to the task, looking for a 'like new' car or can't pay then move on and keep looking. Email any questions. No trades. No warranties. Winning bidder will PayPal $500 non refundable deposit within 24 hours of auction ending and full balance within 7 days of auction end. Zero and bad feedback bidders will be deleted unless contacting me first. Charger is for sale locally so I reserve the right to close this auction at time of local sale.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has launched an investigation focusing on 110,000 Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups from model years 2004 to 2006. One death has already been reported, according to NHTSA, due to a potential fault with the clutch interlocks on manual-transmission versions of the heavy duty pickup.
According to the report, these trucks can be started without depressing the clutch. There have been three reports so far, and as we mentioned above, one very sad incident seems to have resulted in the death of a child.
"One complaint involved an incident that occurred when a child was able to enter the vehicle and start the ignition without depressing the clutch. The vehicle then moved forward striking another child resulting in a fatality," NHTSA said in the investigation bulletin, which you can view below.
Hot on the heels of Ford's earnings announcement for the year that was, Chrysler today reported a 2012 net income of $1.7 billion, up substantially from the comparatively minuscule $183 million profit earned in 2011 when it repaid its US government loans.
Chrysler's good year ended with an excellent fourth quarter that saw net income rise 68 percent from $225 million in 2011 to $378 million. Where are all those extra earnings coming from? Market share, which Chrysler saw increase to 11.4% last year on sales of 1.65 million vehicles. In fact, the Auburn Hills, MI-based automaker out-paced the industry's market growth of 13 percent last year with sales up 21 percent for the year.
The company also revealed an updated product plan for its Chrysler Group and Fiat brands that looks all the way out to 2016. It's an updated version of the plan introduced in 2009 shortly after Fiat took control of the American automaker, and includes such new additions as an Alfa Romeo model, likely the 4C, to be introduced in the US this year, as well five more Alfa models by 2016. Likewise, Fiat will be growing by an additional seven models in the coming few years.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling a total of 747,817 vehicles in the US in two separate campaigns recently added to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration database.
The first one covers about 434,581 units of the Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, Challenger, Durango, and Jeep Grand Cherokee from the 2011-2014 model years with electric hydraulic power steering, the 3.6-liter V6 engine and a 160 amp alternator, according to FCA. In the affected vehicles, it's possible for the alternator to fail without warning and possibly cause the car to stall. According to the documentation submitted to NHTSA, the automaker began investigating the problem in August 2014 and has found possible evidence of one crash caused by the failures but no known injuries.
Customers will begin receiving notification about the recall next month, and obviously the repairs will be done at no cost to them.
