1968 Dodge Charger - OE Gold Certified

This car was originally built by Chrysler as a show car for their International Sales dealership in New York City and was used for several months to entice foreign dealers to represent and sell Chrysler cars overseas. The original owner purchased the car direct from the New York sales dealership and drove the car home to Massachusetts where it served as a daily driver until the gas shortage of 1974. It was subsequently parked and taken out of service, and then partially dismantled by his eldest son. The car was sold to the second owner in 1980.

A goal of the present owner was OE judging at the Chrysler Nationals. Several years of searching to find a numbers matching 1968 Charger R/T ultimately lead him to purchase this car in 1990. A full frame off rotisserie restoration was completed by Xtreme to ensure that the car was "As Built" by Chrysler when it left the assembly plant. A significant part of the judging is documentation and history, and over the years any paperwork that came with the car was lost. As part of the restoration process the original owner was located, providing the missing information on the history of the car.

As a courtesy, the restored car was brought to the original owners home where both the first and second owners were reunited with the vehicle. They were amazed at the restoration completed by Xtreme.

The Charger is finished in it's original paint code .GG1. racing green paint with matching green interior. The car has an extensive list of options including power windows and the ultra rare "clover leaf" hubcaps.

OE Gold Certified. OE goal achieved.
