          Do you care about double black (black exterior and interior, no vinyl top), or is it just the triple?

          Just asking because there are so few BB1 1968 Chargers RTS and two were for sale this week, but were double black.

              Does anyone know what the highest VIN number is for a 68 Charger that year? Mine was built on 7-01-68 a triple back charger, a friend of mine worked for Chrysler in the 60s and mentioned it is a week or two before tool over fo the 69 production year. I might have the last 68 Charger RT built?

              There were many other black Chargers made with other than black interiors. I remember test driving a black outside, tan inside Hemi Charger about 1971. So a black exterior was probably not all that rare if all the possible interior combinations were considered. But yeah, if I had ordered one back then, it definitely would have been black/black.

              68 Chargers were built at two different plants after March so there will be two different VIN ranges.
              As VINs have nothing to do with production, cars with lower VIN's could be built later than your car.
              Scheduled production dates do not indicate actual production dates. Cars can be built well before or after a scheduled date. Meaning a car with an SPD of July 1 could have been built mid June leaving open the possibility a significant number of cars were built after yours.

              Meaning, the info you are looking for is impossible to know or claim.

              Unless and until individual factory records surface, there is no way to know in what order cars were built.

              Unless and until factory records surface, and probably not even then, there is no way to know how many cars were built in a specific combination. Available documentation just isn't tracked that way.
