Used 1968 Dodge Charger for sale in Olathe, Kansas
Gateway Classic Cars is excited to offer this stunning 1968 Dodge Charger R/T! Dodge introduced the Charger for the 1966 model year to combat sales from the Ford Mustang fastback and AMC Marlin. For the first two year the Charger didnt see huge sales numbers but did forge a place in the market for a more upscale fastback car with 2+2 style seating. In 1968 all bets were off, sales of the new second generation soared to new heights! The plan was to build 35,000 new 68 Chargers--by the end of the year over 96,000 Chargers had hit the streets. With only minor redesigns in 1969 and 1970, the Charger was a giant hit for Dodge and a Mopar icon was born! Over those 3 years the Charger was offered in many different trim levels such as an R/T, SE, 500 and Daytona that was built to compete on the NASCAR circuit. With movies like Steve McQueens Bullitt, The Fast and the Furious and TV shows like the Dukes of Hazzard, the second-generation Dodge Charger had become one of the most popular and sought-after muscle cars in history. This 68 Charger comes equipped with the 440 CI V8 backed up by a Tremec 5 speed manual. Finished with a metallic black paint over a black interior, complete with black leather seats, this menacing Charger is ready the hit the streets!
