'68 DODGE CHARGER R/T
In 1968, Dodge's styling department succeeded gloriously in developing an automobile that combined a fresh, sleek design with some very serious horsepower. They had created the company's first real supercar. Recognized by many then and now as the meanest, sexiest, best-looking ride on the road, the '68 Charger was available with a wide range of performance, trim, and paint options to suit all tastes.
Sport optioned as the R/T (Race/Track), it could be ordered with the legendary 426 Hemi, an engine that, when tuned right, was nearly unbeatable on the road or track - but out of reach for most buyers with its $605 price tag premium. The more popular and more manageable performance option was the 440ci Magnum. With a conservative estimate of 375hp, it delivered more than enough serious street power. As the Car & Diver road test stated, "Here is an automobile that is all guts and purpose.”
Turning heads and stealing the show came easily with a Charger. Eye-catching exterior colors, contrasting vinyl roofs, and bold 'bumble bee' rear stripes guaranteed many a second glance from passers-by. Add a high-styled racing-type fuel filler cap, dual chrome exhausts, stock wheel covers, or Mag-style chrome rims, and the resulting ride demands instant attention.
The all-new hidden headlamp grill, afterburner tall lights, and 'coke bottle' body, coupled with restrained use of chrome, established this Charger as a styling high point for the year. A race-inspired instrument cluster, sporty center console, and groovy pleated seats created one of Dodge's studios' zingiest cabin designs ever.
At its debut, Dodge boasted, "You wouldn't change a line if you could." The '68 Charger R/T was a seriously cool ride fully worthy of its 'Muscle Car Icon' status.
The 'Black Widow' Hemi Charger continues Pioneer's series of Street Racer models. Its performance and design (fitted with the Typhoon 18k 'SS; motor, MAG 500 style wheels, and Supathane tires, make this model a superior track performer. Will a 'Black Widow' live amongst your slot car collection?
