General discription

FOR SALE & IN OUR SHOWROOM

A great original real 1968! Charger RT 440, that will/can be restored or upgraded to your personal liking's and required a quality level, how good is that! For the current asking price you will receive a real and fully original RT car with completely Pro rebuild original engine and driveline but of course, on request, we can change every detail you want! We can also build you a pro touring to resto-mod style car from it. What you want, we can build.  But we feel the best way to go is to have us restore the car back to its factory original condition. The price is based on that but if you want car build in any other way we will of course lower the base price of the car accordingly and make you a new quote on request. 


This car was found with its second owner! Who had the car for over 35 years and it was garage kept all the time that's how this car survived all those years as it almost never saw any water or moisture! So how rare its that after more than 45 years! Finding a car that's restored and unmolested with all of its original sheet metal is very rare and a fantastic base for a restoration if you want the best possible quality. It was painted once in the late 70's in its current black paint, that still looks good, but we soon found out that the true jewel was hidden underneath that color as the care was originally a very rare factory B5 Blue metallic paint car! This, combined with its blue interior told us that this was once a very rare and amazing looking Charger RT. The 68' model year for most charger fans is the most desirable one of all and we won't disagree on that.


The car is also equipped with many rare options such as for instance: Power Steering! Tinted window! Real bucket seat (deluxe ) interior car! Deluxe interior with floor shifter! Dress up package Hood mounted turn signal indicators Drip rail moldings Belt moldings Wheel lip moldings! Sure-grip rear axle with 3.23 gears. White RT bumble bee stripe! Painted dog dish style wheels ( rare !) Most chargers you see for sale today are far from original and are old and saggy and either have non-factory replaced sheet metal and floors or worse, loads of bondo and filler repairs hidden under a nice coat of paint. The normally also have non-original parts and the cars are far from what the original car was. Many of them lost their original drive lines along the way and they were replaced either with the wrong type of engine and transmission or worse, an old soggy and tired engine from another car were the true performance of the original engine the car ever had is long gone. 


When we found the car we found out that the owner had replaced its original 440 engine for a 383. But once we asked why in gods name he swapped it he told us that the original motor was taken out so it could be rebuilt but he just never got around to have it done. He then came across the current 383 engine on a swap meet, bought it and installed it on his charger! But the good thing was that the original engine was/is still with the car on a pallet and we, of course, took it home with us!


So the original transmission and rear axle and driveline are still with the car how great is that. Finding a solid car and original car like this is really rare and the absolute best car to buy for your money and a super solid investment. The body, chassis and frame rails are super solid and the car is an original XS-code charger RT with the 440cui 4bbl engine and 727 automatic performance transmission. Therefore its a fantastic base for a restoration to bring it back to its former original glory, or if that's what you like, a pro touring style car, but one that's a true and real RT. The car is already in very good condition so we can either do a mild resto as a driver car or we can do a full show quality restoration.


This original and very rare B5 blue car with blue interior will look amazing when it's done and the car really deserves it. For the asking price it will be sold either in its original color ( currently black diamond) with a brand new paint job by PTTM, or on request we can paint it in any other color you might like, but we feel its original color is the best way to go as that's how the car originally left the factory and it looks awesome. But of course, you can feel different about that. Its an awesome and rare original color combination that will be stunning! (see sample pictures) once its re-painted.


But if you like black (or even triple black with a black vinyl top we can do that as well. The interior is in great all original shape with bucket seats and console shifter and all the gauges and lights are functional, we even have the original blue steering wheel complete with the car! How often do you see an all original sheet metal 1968 Charger RT ? with its original interior! Driveline and engine and transmission?


The cars original RT Vin numbers are still in place an can be found in the correct locations and the factory original fender tag is also still there. Solid and honest 68 RT chargers, or any charger for that matter are getting almost impossible to find. Let alone a matching car and a real XS coded RT! Combined with its original options and color and its additional rare factory options this is a super rare car and a great investment seeing prices of these real RT's keep ricing and ricing and we have seen some getting sold for almost double of our asking price! and prices will keep rising in the years to come as they have done so for the last 40+ years. 


This car we offer for sale will receive a complete mild restoration with a complete pro rebuild original 440 V8 Engine, rebuild an original transmission, suspension and steering system, all new fuel and brake lines, a complete high-quality paint job in a base and clear coat and an overall upgrade and service of all major components. Of course, you can add or change things to your personal liking's and that's why we haven't started the resto job just now, as this way you can add or change certain details or quality levels to your own personal likings. But for the asking price, you will buy yourself a real original 68' charger RT that is restored to a high-quality level car with all its original and valuable features and it can be driven and enjoyed.


For this money you get a fantastic car, that's technically all-new, restored and has one of the best and most original and rust-free body you can find. More than 35000,- Euro will be spent on the restoration and rebuild of the drive-line alone. On request, we can also do an even more intensive top show quality restoration, but it won't need it!. But if you're looking for high show lever type of car with a highly detailed or painted underside, and every little detail must be factory correct and in flawless 100 point condition, we can do that for you as well for an additional fair price. All in all its a great chance to own a real deal 68 RT! Don't let it get away... In this condition and all freshly restored to your likings, it will be impossible to ever find again. 


You cant build or restore a real deal original RT for this money, let alone a car that carries 99,9% of its factory original parts and in this fantastic and rare color combination. And as stated on request we can add or changer details to your personal likings as well! And you can follow the complete restoration process. When you buy this car you also have the BIG advantage to see whats been done to it and how it is restored, something we feel is a unique and rare opportunity as if you buy a car that's all done already, there is just no real way you can be sure all was done the right way and it might look nice.. but underneath it all, it might be only a cosmetic restoration full of bondo and the engine might look rebuild but its only been painted to look that way.


So why risk to invest your hard earned money into a "done "car where you have no real clue of what you're buying if you can buy one that you can be sure of its all in great condition and restored the correct way. We at PTTM have restored many show and award-winning Mopars and you can be sure this car, once done, will be just perfectly done as well. Besides all the above, you will also receive many pictures along the way of its restorations and can personally follow the transformation if you have the time to visit us from time to time. This way you really see what you get and see or add certain details to your personal likings, We can even tune the engine or install certain additional options to your personal likings.


For THIS money, you won't ever get the change to own a high quality 68 RT charger again. The above-described restoration is included in the sales price!  and the EU import taxes are paid and included as well. We can offer you a spread payment plan on the restoration costs, so you buy the car at its base price first and the restoration costs will be spread throughout the time frame of the restoration! So there won't be any unnecessary risk for you at all. We estimate the restoration will at least take 6 months, but if its better for your budget we can take more time no problem.


We want to offer you is a chance to own a great car, restored to your taste and demands, for a great price!  On request, we can also custom build the car with special suspension, steering, more powerful engine and other transmissions, brakes and so on. Just ask and we can build it!. The base car of the price will then be 35000 Euro LOWER ( the cost for the normal original style car restoration) and the cost for the details you wanted to be changed and done calculated and we will make you a complete new attractive quote. everything is possible!, just come to buy our showroom so we can discuss your wishes on your dream charger.  On request, we can also sell the car with custom alu wheels and low profile tires (as in the sample pictures) or any other wheel tire combo you might like.

  • Guide: Matching numbers

    In the collector car hobby, most investment-minded buyers are acutely interested in a specific car’s history. One of the main aspects of that history is an original or, as most people state it, numbers-matching drivetrain. At pedaltothemetal muscecars we feature a plethora of original and numbers-matching classics including ‘Cudas, Road Runners, Chevelles, Camaros, Corvettes and Trans Ams. And, if a potential buyer knows how to properly identify and interpret certain manufacturing codes, they can further validate their car’s history, or on request we can provide it.

  • Vehicle claims and descriptions

    Vehicle/product descriptions, representations and claims on or offline are based on what can be seen by the human eye, documentation, previous professional experience, opinion, factory claims, and, or, information passed on to us by previous owners or restorers. It's to the best of our knowledge that everything we advertise has all indications of being that claim. Please inquire as to what documentation we have on the vehicle you are purchasing or feel free to ask any additional questions you might have, But by no means you can accept our answers as facts as the are our interpretation and might not match yours. It is with integrity and honesty that we describe our cars, but they are in fact, up to 50 years old, may have had many previous owners, modifications or alterations that are unknown to the us, so it's not possible to verify everything about every car in detail. Thereby the stated conditions or details of a car can never ever be taken as a fact. As always we welcome personal inspections and or independent appraisers prior to a sale. Incase we speak of "Original" or "Matching numbers" it means that we asume that to be the case, but with old classic cars thats by no means a guarantee. So please feel free to verify that in person or with a third party.

    Pttm goes a step further than almost every other seller(s), as we also do a full inspection of our vehicles prior to having them for sale in our showroom and make repairs improvements if needed so. And when a vehicle/product is sold we give it a full service check before you receive it !
