Feel free to ask me any questions about the car : nicollenssiskey@englishhome.net .

Custom built 1968 Dodge Charger. The previous owner, after watching an episode of the Dukes Boys in which the
General Lee was turned into a 4x4 to chase some Jeeps decided he wanted a 4x4 General Lee of his own. So he found
a Charger body that was missing its floor....as well as a few other items and grafted it to a 2000 Dodge Durango
4x4 complete floor pan, frame, firewall, all running gear, seats and digital dash. The donor vehicle has fuel
injected engine, abs brakes, disc front brakes, air bags, cruise, tilt wheel, a/c, heat, 7in monitor with
cd/dvd/backup camera capabilities,Bluetooth capabilities and 10" subs with 750 watt amp. The tires are Dune
Grappler tires ordered straight from Nitto and a brand new extra tire in trunk. Engine is a 4.7 V/8 Auto
transmission.
The ending result is the style of a classic car, but the drivability and comforts of a new one!
It is autographed (and cleared over) on the trunk lid by Bo(John Schneider), Luke(Tom Wopat), Daisy(Catherine
Bach), James Best(Sheriff Rosco), Sonny Shroyer(Enos Strate), Rick Hurst(Cletus) and Ben Jones(Cooter). The car
also comes with a compound bow with fake sticks of dynamite is also signed by Tom Wopat and John Schneider.
Since I have owned the car I have gone through most of the suspension bushings, front shocks, replaced the a/c
compressor, built a custom bumper that is powder coated and recently replaced the top vinyl decal. I purchased a
complete decal set for the car so it comes with spare decals for the doors, trunk and the General Lee for the roof.
The car also comes with various new door and window seals. I also replaced the door hinges with new and doors
close very nicely. Also has a new battery. Currently there is 135000 miles on it and it runs flawlessly. The car
is very presentable and nice looking from any angle. There are a few small bubbles on the car and body filler used
as gauged from a magnet. The only real gripe I have is that the 4x4 shifter linkage was modified and likes to
argue to go into 4 wheel drive. The transfer case is fineÖitís the linkage that binds.
Driving this car brings a great big smile to your face....not to mention all those people you pass. There isn't a
day that I drive the car where I don't see a camera phone pointed in my direction....so you had better be a people
person if you buy this car. The exhaust has a very nice sound. Car is titled as a 1968 Charger and the title is
free and clear.

Defiance Dodge Charger, saving Earth from aliens isn't clean work [w/video]

Fri, 08 Feb 2013 08:45:00 EST

You'll be forgiven for not having heard about the TV show Defiance - it actually hasn't aired its first episode yet. The new science fiction show about an alien war against Earth in the near future seems like a perfect fit for the SyFy channel, and, apparently one that Dodge saw as a slick marketing opportunity for its Charger sedan.
Here in Chicago, Dodge has given a large corner of its show stand to the Defiance Charger, a car that won't be skipped by any Mad Max fans in attendance at this year's show. The Charger boasts one hell of a gnarly patina under a confusingly welded cage of tube steel, as well as window bars, a grille guard in front, and big, knobby truck tires. There aren't any obvious guns or turrets on the outside of the vehicle, so we can only hope that the characters driving it go well-armed.
Look for the Charger to make its star turn in Defiance when the series premieres on SyFy on April 15 at 9:00 PM EST. Also, there's said to be a Defiance video game in the works, too, so you may get a chance to steer the burly Dodge for yourself. Find a trailer for the show, below, as well.

Dodge Charger Hellcat hitting 60 in 2.9 seconds on drag radials?

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 17:40:00 EST

The Dodge boys and their cousins from SRT have shoehorned the same 707-horsepower, 6.2-liter supercharged V8 into both the Dodge Challenger and Charger. The former being a two-door, it's lighter than the latter four-door sedan. So it would stand to reason that the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat would be the quicker of the two, right?
Only that's not necessarily proving to be the case. On stock rubber, yes, the coupe beats the sedan: Dodge quotes a 0-60 time of 3.7 seconds for the Charger SRT Hellcat and 3.5 for the Challenger. Same gap across the quarter-mile: 11 seconds flat for the Charger versus 10.8 seconds for the Challenger. But according to recent reports, the story changes when you put both on drag radials.
While visiting Chrysler HQ in Auburn Hills, MI, TorqueNews.com caught wind of performance figures for the Charger Hellcat on drag tires: 0-60 in a mind-blowing 2.9 seconds and a quarter-mile in just 10.7. The latter figure just barely pips the Hellcat-powered Challenger's NHRA-certified figure of 10.8, making the Charger not only the fastest sedan on the market, but also the fastest muscle car. What isn't immediately clear, however, is whether the drag radials in question have any tread on them and are street-legal, or if they're pure slicks confined to a closed strip.

Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat in the works

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 12:56:00 EST

In Autoblog's recent First Drive of the 2015 Challenger SRT with the 707-horsepower Hellcat V8 we found its engine to be as brutally powerful as the numbers would suggest, even if it wasn't the best handler. However, the muscle-car-styling just isn't right for some buyers that need four doors and proper rear seats to haul around the family. It appears that Dodge has their backs, though, because the Hellcat is very likely on its way into the Charger in the near future. Imagine the looks on your passengers' faces when you stomp down on the throttle.
According to Road and Track, when Dodge submitted the Hellcat for engine power certification to the Society of Automotive Engineers, the company included the Charger on the paperwork. That showed that the automaker wanted the engine checked out for the sedan, too. R&T reckons the 707-hp Charger would hit the road about a year from now, clearing the Challenger for a year of exclusivity with the powerplant.
When the Charger SRT Hellcat does hit the road, it may carry a very special accolade. Assuming nothing beats it in the meantime, it might be the world's highest horsepower production sedan. Think on that for a second. Even a Mercedes S65 AMG only has 621 horsepower, though a good bit more torque at 738 pound-feet to the Dodge's 650 lb-ft. So while the beastly engine is getting put into other models, where else would you like to see it? The Ram? Grand Cherokee? Let us know in Comments.
