Patrick's - 68'Pro Touring Style Charger RT
Patrick's 68'Pro Touring Style Charger RT.
This fantastic triple black charger was sold to Patrick by PedalToThemetal.
Owner: Patrick Koorenman / Belgium - Completed 2015
And although the car was in good overall condition, Patrick still had his personal wishes and request to change the car into his personal dream charger and asked PTTM to perform the build. We started by replacing the complete drive line with a custom build front coil over suspension system with vented and slotted disc brakes and new rack and pinion power steering.
The rear end received a brand new DANA 60 axle with 3.55 gears and a complete 4 link rear axle system with coil over suspension system and new 4 wheel SSBC slotted and vented disc brakes with big calipers as well. The interior was changed and a new carpet and dynomat isolation were installed and the car received new seats and rear bench in black custom-made leather upholstery.
The underside of the car was cleaned and painted in a flat coat black and the original 440 engine was replaced by a brand new PTTM build 600Hp 500 cubic inch stroker engine combined with a complete new 3-inch stainless exhaust system also custom made by PTTM. Besides all that the car also received a PTTM build transmission with a gear vendor overdrive kit for a good balance between overall performance and highway engine rpm.
The wheels ( originally black dog dish style ) were changed with a set of custom alu wheels with a black coated center and wide low profile tires that makes this car stand-out even more. While we were ad it, Patrick also requested us to install a Vintage airco system in the car and he wanted power windows and a modern style stereo system. So, all in all, we pulled out the complete dash at the same time and renewed all the wiring at the same time.
All in all this turned out to be a complete restoration and transformation into a Pro-touring style charger. Late summer 2015 after many road tests we turned over the keys to one happy owner! This 69 triple black pro touring charger turned out really amazing. Don't you agree?
The owner told us: I'm stunned by the final result of the car and amazed at the cars overall high quality. It turned out way nicer than i ever expected and the paint job PTTM performed is outstanding.
The stance of the car is also fantastic and the new engine and transmission perform way better than i could have ever expected. I'm a bit sad now the car is all done seeing i will miss my trips to your shop to see my car getting build, but on the other side i can now finally start enjoying the car.
Thanks, PTTM and crew, I'm very, very happy with this car and you did a great job!
