Featured Muscle Car – Dodge Charger R/T 440 (1968-1969)

Part of our Most Sought After Muscle Cars Series

What’s the most important onscreen muscle car of all time? Arguably, it’s the Dodge Charger. Let’s look at its television and film credentials:

 

 

 

The Dukes of Hazzard

"Bullitt" with Steve McQueen

The Fast and the Furious

Because of the car’s distinctive hardtop, just about anyone will recognize it, not to mention the front grill and hidden headlights. It’s a memorable car that embodies rebellion. Dodge created the vehicle with the idea that it would have excellent street performance and be great for drag racing too. It’s got great handling with some serious suspension.

The popularity of the car combined with its scarcity makes this a very sought after vehicle. When the car was first launched, there were only 37,000 produced and they sold for a base price of $3,500. Now you might pay as much as $170K. Everything about the Dodge Charger ’68 and ’69 just cries out “bad boy” and if you’re lucky enough to get to drive one of these cars, let alone own one, then you are very lucky indeed!
