In the garage they found a unique 52-year-old Dodge Charger with a rare engineMay 14, 2020
In total, in 1968, 259 similar muscle cars were produced.
In one of the garages of the city of Albuquerque, USA, they discovered a second-generation green Dodge Charger, which rolled off the assembly line in 1968. The fact that the car is completely in factory paint and has a rare engine under the hood adds to the uniqueness of this find.
Dodge Charger is painted in a rare factory paint, which combines the main green color and black stripes across the rear of the body. Since 2003, the car was stored without movement in a garage littered with junk until it was discovered by a collector of American muscle cars.
The second-generation rear-wheel drive coupe is equipped with a rare engine modification: 6.3-liter V8, which produces 294 horsepower and 529 Nm of torque. Despite the fact that the Dodge was covered with a thick layer of dust when it was found, the wheels were lowered and the car was not on the go, according to the owner of the muscle car, in addition to the fuel pump, which requires replacement, all of the regular Charger units are in good condition condition.
The second generation Dodge Charger was produced from 1968 to 1970. Restyled Charger received a new body type “hardtop coupe.” In addition, the front optics was completely replaced in the model – instead of retractable headlights, static ones were installed, which were equipped with covers and a vacuum drive.
The maximum speed of a muscle car with this engine modification was 183 kilometers per hour, and up to “hundreds” the car could accelerate in 7.3 seconds.
In early May, a 60s Dodge Charger cemetery was discovered in New York State Forest. Because over the years spent without moving, cars have literally grown into the ground, muscle cars are in terrible condition.
