68 Charger R/t Conversion Part 4. Finished

Hi Everyone,

After a minor setback it's finished. I started this build as a replica stock but had a change of mind.

I decided to do it like the street cruisers of the early 70's so I ditched the magnum 500 wheels for some aftermarket wheels.

I also blacked out the grill added yellow plug wires and headers along with lakewood traction bars. Raised the rear end a little.

The usual BMF treatment and Keith Marks decals. It was a fun conversion to do. Thanks to fellow board member Ron S for making the personalized rear license plate along with the front vanity plate.

Here are some pics.

I hope you like it. Comments Welcome.

Outstanding build Don. The colors and period details are perfect. I can smell the $.45 a gallon Sunoco 260 now!

That is beautiful! This has to be one of the finest Chargers I've seen yet (along with Andy's). All my favorites; year, color, wheels, striping, stance, etc, etc. Fantastic job on the details, too.

Very nice! I've always considered the 68 Charger to be the best looking muscle car out there, and you've done them proud!!!

I dig the over-spray on the chassis.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. It was really a blast to build. I just started my next project. It's a 69 Dodge Dart GTS. Will have some pics on the workbench soon.

THANK YOU for awakening this old thread. I missed it the first time around, so I'm glad I got to see this '68. INCREDIBLE build. The '68 Charger was BY FAR the best looking year. BEAUTIFUL PAINT!

In a nutshell, you've totally nailed it. I have to agree- this is one of the finest Chargers I've ever seen. The Arrest-Me-Red paint, the wheels and the tires complete a killer package.
