The Model: The second generation of Chargers took to the streets in 1968 sporting their Richard Sias designed double-diamond Coke-bottle profile and hide-away headlights.  The 1969 model had just a few subtle differences over the previous year including a new grille with a center divider, and new longitudinal taillights. The base model was available with a 230 HP 318 cid V8. Two 383 engine options were available in ’69, the 383 2-barrel rated at 290 HP and the 383 4-barrel rated at 330 HP.  Gearheads could opt-up for the 440 Magnum or 426 Hemi V8s with Carter AVS carb and larger exhaust manifolds.  In the era of the muscle car, Dodge was turning out top notch designs with the ultimate cool factor and ample power.    


The Car: The Charger model presented here is powered by the standard 318 cid V8, rated at 230 HP, paired with automatic torqueflite transmission and center console-mounted shifter.  A white vinyl top compliments the matching white vinyl interior, making the green paint look extra sharp.  The present owner has indicated that the vehicle was purchased from the original owner’s family.  As the story goes, the original owner drove home the car one day and parked it in the garage where it stayed for many years, not running, and collecting dust.  In 2008 the current owner was able to purchase the car and became the new curator of this timepiece.   In mid-2008, new engine and transmission mounts were added, as well as a heater valve, heater core, new steering box, and new electrical and dash harness.  The suspension system saw new shackles, new leaf springs, and replaced strut rod bushings.  Later new fuel lines were installed and the carburetor was overhauled.  Other updates in late 2008 included a new water pump, all engine belts, and a fresh cooling system flush with new fluids. The air conditioning system was repaired in 2009 and updated with a new wiring harness. In 2010, the owner treated the car to re-chromed bumpers, and in the preceding year some bodywork and painting.  In 2013, the Charger saw new brakes and a new power brake booster.  Needless to say, this car has been in good hands, and will be a great car for a Mopar guy or gal.
