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.
Dodge has revealed what it calls Scat Package Stage Kits that enhance the performance of the Charger and the Challenger equipped with the 5.7-liter V8, and the Dart equipped with the turbocharged 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder engine. The Scat Packs use Mopar performance parts that also can be bought separately. Most of the upgrades increase engine output, but Dodge somehow manages to not specifically mention the power gains associated with each Scat Pack.
The three Scat Packs offered for the V8-powered cars focus on higher power ratings, and each stage comes complete with a unique engine-management calibration to optimize output. Stage one comes with a cold-air intake and a cat-back exhaust; stage two adds a performance camshaft; and stage three really gives you the goods, adding ported polished cylinder heads and performance headers.
For the Dart, the Scat Packs focus on engine, transmission, chassis and brake upgrades. Stage one will net you a cold-air intake, a short-throw shifter and slotted rotors with performance brake pads; stage two adds a cat-back exhaust system and an engine-management calibration to increase output by taking advantage of premium-octane gasoline; and stage three adds 13-inch vented brake discs up front clamped by four-piston calipers, suspension with adjustable springs and struts and performance front and rear antiroll bars.
What do the Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger and Ram 1500 all have in common? Yes, they're all Chrysler products, and two of them are based on the same platform. And we're sure you could find more similarities between them all, but the common trait we're looking at here is that, while they all come standard in rear-drive form, they're also available with all-wheel drive. And it's the transmission in those models that's the subject of the latest recall notice issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The output shaft on the eight-speed automatic transmission supplied by ZF to Chrysler for the AWD versions of the 300, Charger and Ram 1500 is apparently prone to fracture. That in the end could leave the vehicle without power and could, according to the NHTSA investigation, increase the chance of a crash. The vehicle could also roll away if even if left in Park without the handbrake applied.
That's why Chrysler is calling in 4,194 examples of those three models from the 2013 model year. Dealers will be responsible for inspecting the transmissions and, where necessary, replace the entire unit. See the full recall notice below for all the details.
Even though Chrysler will reportedly discontinue the Dodge Durango after the current model's lifespan - said to be around 2016 - that isn't stopping the automaker from improving its full-size, three-row SUV. The vehicle won't debut at the New York Auto Show until tomorrow, but images are already leaking out ahead of the embargo lift, and they show that the 2014 model is getting even more aggressive styling to go with more technology inside and out.
Dodge limited its early press shots of the new Durango to just the R/T trim level, but this new look adds a meaner look to this model with more dramatic projector-beam headlights along with a "floating" crosshair grille and a restyled fascia. At the rear of the Durango, LED racetrack taillights show a family resemblance to the Charger and Dart, while a new rear fascia adds to the styling while also allowing for an integrated trailer hitch.
On the tech side, the instrument panel looks to have been redesigned to include a standard seven-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) gauge cluster, and it also appears as if Chrysler's well-liked UConnect system has been updated with the 8.4-inch touchscreen found in other Chrysler vehicles. The 2013 model's conventional console shifter has been replaced by a rotary knob for gear selection, suggesting that there are transmission changes afoot as well. We'll have more details when the silks slide off this big boy tomorrow, so stay tuned.
