The Dodge Charger is one of the most celebrated muscle cars the brand has ever produced with a heritage that continues to endear new generations in its current iteration today. The 1968 Charger would bring Dodge back from the brink of oblivion and cement a legacy that continues to fascinate. The visionary restomod here has taken Dodge’s greatest muscle car and transformed it into a formidable, modern street racer with one of the greatest bespoke engine builders of our time. This 1968 Dodge Charger, equipped with a supercharged Hemi, is custom-built to deliver riveting performance with the captivating look of Dodge’s greatest muscle car.

The most iconic Dodge ever produced, the Charger has seen a massive resurgence in popularity thanks to the ever-popular four-door iteration on the streets today. The importance of the model in Dodge’s legacy and endurance cannot be overstated. The two-door muscle car brought Dodge back into the arena when Chevy and Ford were skyrocketing in popularity with their pony cars. The sleek coke-bottle lines and rugged curb appeal brought something altogether new and provocative to the table and the Charger has gone down in history as one of the most desirable models in Dodge history. The 1968 revision of the Charger was truly where the model gained traction in the public imagination and a total of 96,100 were produced when a mere 35,000 were initially slated for production. The popularity nearly tripled the expected production and the model has returned for multiple acts over the years, but it was the 1968 that cemented the Charger’s legendary fate that is so celebrated today.

This example was just another 1968 Dodge Charger when Gary Stanton began to work his magic. Mr. Stanton, of Stanton Racing Engines, develops performance engines for high-profile racing series including World of Outlaws, USAC and continues to design engines for Mopar and myriad others. His incomparable work has been used and celebrated by Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Al Unser, Jr., and countless other racing legends. Gary custom installed the Generation III Hemi engine in the original 426-cubic-inch displacement for this car. The 7.0-liter Hemi engine is augmented with an Arrington Racing Magnuson TVS intercooled supercharger system that utilizes a conical air intake adorned with vintage-style 426 Race Hemi valve covers and is mated to a four-speed HT 4L80 Stage IV automatic transmission that concludes in a Ford 9-inch differential. Below the hood, the firewall, tubular engine bay, and modern cooling system are a mechanical work of art. Modern amenities include power steering and four-wheel power disc brakes. An impressive XV Level 2 suspension system is retrofitted to the car. This high-performance powertrain and suspension make for the ultimate modern muscle car that delivers all the thunderous rumble we all wish the original Charger would have achieved without sacrificing the devastatingly good looks of the original Charger.

The nostalgic, muscular factory body is robed in entirely fitting silver paint with black scat stripes that capture the glorious feel of ’68 with tasteful perfection. The Charger rides on 18x9 DUB custom-painted three-piece front and 19x12 wheels in the rear, wrapped in Nitto Invo tires. The retro body belies all modern magic below the hood, but the custom cockpit welcomes you comfortably into the 21st century with luscious black leather and suede upholstery, attractive Vintage Air climate control, Dakota Digital gauges, a custom stereo system with LCD screen and a leather steering wheel. Behind the wheel of this thoughtfully appointed restomod, you can cruise the blacktop in Dodge’s greatest muscle car but leave onlookers in the dust inside a cabin that boasts every modern convenience.
