'68 Charger

Although my car is not a showroom beauty... there's a story behind this car I'd like to tell...

I bought this lady in red in July 2006. I planned on buying a Charger since 2004, but as these cars are hard to find and quit expensive, it took me a couple of years to find a car I liked and that I could afford. Finally I found my '68 Charger in The Netherlands and now I'm bringing her home... that is, my home: Belgium.

My Charger is made on the Hamtrack Plant. She's a 383 4-barrel, 727 tf automatic. She has Bucket Seats with Center Front Seat, Hood Mounted Turn Signal Indicators, Driver's Outside Remote Operated Mirror and it was a Sold Car When Built. She has Power Brakes, Tinted Windshield and a White Vinyl Top. She had an AM Radio.
She's also equipped with Drip Rail Mouldings, Body Belt Mouldings and Wheel Lip Mouldings, a 3.23 Rear Axle Ratio and the interior is Deluxe Trim Grade, Vinyl Bucket Seats, White on Black Interior and White Upper Door Frame Colour. She had 7.35x14 WSW tires, so the vintage Torq Thrust D rims are not the right rims, but I think they look awesome under my car. :o)

She was Monotone Red car, but now she's a kind of reddish-brown. But in a couple of years, she will be PP1 red again!

The engine is a 383, but it is a replacement engine. It has a 4-barrel carb, no a Carter but a fine Holley.

And last but not least... I am the only girl in my country who owns a Charger, maybe even in Europe, so maybe that counts as an extra reason to make my little lady car of the month ;o)

Some pics of my Charger and me, working on the car.

Kind regards
