1968 Charger R/T 426 HEMI

Once proud HEMI sits in the weeds

This 1968 HEMI Charger was a theft recovery more than 30 years ago and has been rusting away ever since. The factory Dark Green paint and white vinyl top have been replaced with so much rust that it's probably not worth saving, especially since it's factory 426 HEMI is long gone.

But what a great muscle car this must have been. The R/T was the Road/Track package first offered in 1967. In addition to upgrades like a heavy duty suspension, front torsion bar, anti-roll bar, shocks and brakes, the R/T also allowed you to order the fire breathing 426 HEMI under the hood. The pinnacle of Mopar muscle cars engines, the 426 HEMI was conservatively rated at 425 hp and 490 lb ft of torque.  And all those cubic inches equate to big price tags in today's muscle car market. Maybe this rusted out shell will be saved after all.
