General discription

EXPECTED SOON !:

 

1968 Dodge Charger RT  (True XS coded) with its original 440 big block V8 ( now stroked to 500cui ) and Performance build TF727 automatic trans with floor shifter. The car is a Tripple black car with Black exterior paint with black RT stripe and a matching black interior and black vinyl top!.


The car is just like the 68' Charger RT that was used in the famous Bullit movie with Steve Mcqueen who drove the famous Mustang fastback. Both these cars are now icon's and amongst the most sought after classic musclecars on the market today. So its an original and correct RT with its matching Engine and correct trans, buts it's been

upgraded to handle and perform way better than it ever did originally 50 years or so ago, and also better than it did in the famous movie Bullit.

 

This car is NOT a clone but the real deal! and it's a true XS coded RT. The car was completely restored ( documents, pics and hundreds of invoices at hand in our shop on request and some pics of it see online below ) a few years ago and  PTTM recently ( 2019) build it a Complete new build ( but original to the car) high peformance engine, transmission, rear end and suspension and brake system. Its now in our shop and we are performimg a complete new freshen up resto and the car will also be completely repainted again to a higher grade of paint quality and we will also upgrade many more details. When its ready it will be all as new and a stunning looker !. 


Its also receiving a few upgrades such as all new American torq trust alu wheels with new redline low profile tires and other improvements in our shop as we speak. It will be ready and in our showroom soon. When done this car will be in as new condition and comes with a fantastic drivetrain all custom build by PTTM. All the parts that you see on and inside this beast are brandnew or restored parts and it has not only a complete new vinyl top but all new glass, chrome, trim emblems and a complete restored and upgraded interior aswell. More than 100k was invested in the resto and drivetrain alone ( without the vallue of the actual 68' RT itself ! )


The fresh build original 440 big block with around 550+hp engine that was stroked with a new crank and rod's and pistons up to 500 cui but its still the correct and matching block for this Charger. Its hooked up to a correct style TF727 performance transmission ( see details in the special sections) combined with the all new suspension, 4 wheel power discbrakes and its Dana 60 rear axle with 4.10 Gears makes this car not only fast but it also drives and performes amazingly for a 55 year old classic car !.


More than 35000,- Alone was spend in getting this Charger the best possible engine and drivetrain. The engine and transmission are still factory correct for this car as the engine base is a 440 Chrysler bigblock and a TF727 Automaticjust like the ones it left the factory with, but the were internally upgraded with the best of best in performance parts and way more powerfull and much stronger now than the ever were originally. On the outside however these components are more or less factory pieces and correct for the car. 


Finding  a True RT 68'Charger is getting harder by the day and this car is the real deal. In this stunning tripple black color combination and with its bucket seat interior and floor console shifter its one of the hottest chargers around!.

The car is also equipped with many additional extra cost options that most RT cars didn't have or get. Many people think every RT is the same and they all have the same options, but that's far from the truth! as in its base form, the Charger RT didn't have many options at all besides the performance suspension and driveline. 


The base cars were pretty straightforward and didn't even have power steering, or bucket seats as a standard feature! no sir, they didn't even come with disc brakes as a standard option. If you check out the below additional cost option list of this car, you will understand that the price new from this particular car is WAY higher than any other base Charger RT's as its equipped with many special high end options. 


And besides the factory options, this Charger is also additionally equipped with every performance part you could possibly ever want and it handles and drives beautifully,  Its overall a great & car for a very attractive and interesting price seeing its been restored and equipped with loads of special parts. Its all turn key ready and tested and will be ready for the summer soon !.

  • 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 !
