68 Charger RT

Average User Rating:
  • Making progress. Hope to be painted this summer and start bolting the ole girl back together, lots of stuff ready to go....
    Painting it factory (SS1) Sun Fire Yellow. Since this is real XS number matching Charger I'm going to be gentle with the mods. Mostly bolt on goodies that any Mopar purest wouldn't have a duck fit about when I eventually sell the car. Had to replace the typical areas on these Chargers, trunk floor and extensions, quarters and lower rear valance as well as the front aprons. Floor was remarkably solid only requiring a couple of small patches. Frame rails are solid as well as the torsion bar cross member. Pretty much cancer free now.

    This last weekend I was able to get the Charger bagged and the chassis undercoated with 3M's medium texture Body Schultz, messy stuff...

      What do you mean "bagged"?

      Basically I just layed some plastic sheeting under the car and taped plastic siding from the car to the sheet on the ground. This was to keep the undercoating from getting everywhere and screwing up the floor in my garage. Hooked up my blower at one end to promote air flow and evacuate the fumes, also secondary keeping me vertical and breathing. If you look at the latest updated photos I think you'll get the idea.

    New bearings, wiring and crush capsules some lipstick and boom a brand new 50 yr old steering column.
    Walnut steering wheel doesn't hurt either...

      That's when the endeavor started. I entrusted this restoration shop in Texas to do the work and well... it went sideways like so may others. After having to move a couple of times I'm getting the chance to move this forward. All the hard work is done, paint, assembly and finally get the ole girl back on the road for some long deserved burn outs...

    Hey gorgeous car! May I ask where you found your power steering pressure hose at?
