1968 Dodge Charger

The Dodge Charger was completely re-styled for 1968 with the fastback body styles being changed in favor of a semi-fastback style. In the front was a full-width grille with a smooth 'coke-bottle shape. In the back were round taillights on each side in a flat-black finished escutcheon panel.

The Charger was fitted with all federally mandated safety features plus all-vinyl front bucket seats, carpeting, three-spoke steering wheel, electric clock, heater and defroster, cigarette lighter, and ashtray light. They also had a heavy-duty suspension, heavy duty rear springs and torsion bars, quick-fill gasoline cap, and concealed headlights. They had wheel opening moldings, a 318 cubic-inch V8 and 7.35x15 tubeless black sidewall tires.

The Charger R/T, which had a base price of $3,480, was the high-performance version and included all the standard features found on the base Charger. They had a 440-cubic inch Magnum V8 engine rated at 375 horsepower. The engine was mated to a TorqueFlite three-speed automatic transmission. The R/T had dual exhaust with chrome tips, heavy-duty brakes, R/T handling package, racing stripes, and F70-14 Red Streak or white sidewall tires.
