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 is getting ready to spread the Blacktop-themed love to the smallest member of its lineup. Last year, the automaker offered up Blacktop versions of the Avenger, Challenger, Charger, Durango, Grand Caravan and Journey. And now the Dart, too, gets its dark on for 2014, with the $295 package offered on Dart SXT models equipped with the Rallye Appearance Group. The Dart Blacktop will make its debut at the Detroit Auto Show next week.
As with the other Blacktop special-edition models, the Dart Blacktop gets glossy black accents for a "sporty, sinister look." The blacked-out treatment spreads across the 18-inch wheels to the crosshair grille, grille surround and headlamp bezels. The interior sees a similar treatment, with black and light tungsten or black and ruby red cloth to go with red accent stitching on the instrument panel, center console and seat bolsters.
For the 2014 model year, all Dart SXT and Limited models receive the 2.4-liter MultiAir2 Tigershark engine with 184 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque, and since the Blacktop is based on the SXT, that's the powerplant buyers of this special-edition will get, too. Expect the 2014 Dart Blacktop to hit dealers in the first quarter, and while you're waiting, feel free to read more in the official press release below.
It's easy to play the "Would you rather have a New X or an Old Y with a bunch of upgrades?" game more often than we care to admit, but the crew at Car and Driver have taken bench racing to the next level with their latest video. In it, the magazine pits a brand-new 2014 SRT Viper against a highly modified 1997 Dodge Viper GTS. There are 16 years between the time this particular GTS rolled off the production line and when the new car bowed, but that doesn't mean the old snake's owners have been sitting on their hands.
Thanks to a spate of modifications, the GTS offers up a better power to weight ratio than the new machine, but is that enough to overcome the technological leap forward represented by the 2014 Viper? We won't spoil it for you. You'll just have to check out the full clip below for yourself.
The Dodge Durango is getting a meaner, more aggressive look as it becomes the latest model from the brand to wear the Blacktop Appearance Package. The upgrades are strictly cosmetic, but they lend the SUV a more assertive demeanor that some buyers like.
Available on the SXT, Limited and R/T (shown above) models, all Blacktop Durangos get black 20-inch wheels, dual exhaust, bod- color fascia and gloss black trim. The grille surround, air dam, mirrors and headlight surrounds all get the inky treatment, as well. The improvements add $1,590 to the cost of the SXT. They come to $1,990 on the Limited but also include HID headlights with LED running lights and a leather interior. Finally, R/T buyers only need to pay $295 for the upgrades. The Blacktop Durango hits showrooms this October.
If you're already in the market for a Durango but want a dash more style with no added performance, the Blacktop might not be a bad way to go. It certainly gives the SUV a bit more edge than it has in stock form. Scroll down to read the full release.
