1968 Dodge Charger (XP29F8B265xxx) All numbers
matching survivor, original 62k miles, 318c.i., auto transmission, bucket
seats, 10” drum brakes, vinyl top, fender tag, broadcast sheet, hood mounted
turn signals, wheel lip moldings, 8 ¾ rear end, 2.76 diff., factory thumb wheel
AM radio, green interior and 14” steel wheels with original hub caps.
The Charger was bought new at St. Clair
Dodge dealership in Pittsburgh, PA and has
tons of documents and paperwork! It has many
of the original receipts (26 total) since new in a binder, original owner certi-card
and owners manual in the clear jacket, stock number card with info from dealer,
dealer license plate frame, original front license plate bracket still in the
plastic when bought new, customer care warranty green book from dealer with
owner info and purchase date of 2-2-68, warranty validation paper from the
dealer and still in the drivers door jam is the warranty validation decal!!!
I just finished a very long detailed cleanup and
mechanical restoration on this absolutely awesome survivor 68 Charger! The previous owner was the original owner and
purchased the Charger brand new on February 2nd 1968!!! The PA title also shows the miles as original
at 62,059. There are several other items
documenting miles like the receipts back to 1968, PA inspection decal and oil
change decal. The only added item is the
newer dual exhaust from front to back and is extremely nice and sounds great! This fine Charger provides an excellent
example of an all purpose car for shows, cruises and cruising!
This is hands down one of the nicest
survivor Chargers that I have seen! Please understand this is not your average driver
condition Charger. It is an unrestored
original factory car that is in extremely nice condition!!!
I typically restore or finish around 8-10 Mopars a
year and have been working on them for more than 30 years and I do everyone as
they were my own to keep. I put a lot of time, effort, pride and money in the
cars that I offer for sale which is evident when viewing one of my cars
compared to others for sale. I do a lot
of the small things with great attention to detail that most people overlook or
don’t know how to fix it correctly.
PAINT, BODY AND FRAME
The body, paint and sheet metal are very straight and
in extremely nice shape and all appear to be the original. The factory enamel paint has been very well
taken cared of and looks absolutely beautiful!!! The only paint work I’m aware of is on the
very underneath bottom side of both rockers due to stone chips. The driver’s quarter and door were blended in
near the door/quarter seam due to a scratch and small dent. The trunk floor center area was also touched
up due to water stain marks (did not touch any of the factory flaws or factory
seam sealer). Please keep in mind that
it has never had any rust repair work done.
The Charger was never driven in the winter months and has never seen
salt. The floor boards, doors, fenders,
trunk floor and trunk extensions are all in unbelievable nice shape. You can run your fingers around every inside
wheel well lip and they are absolutely spotless! Even the factory tabs are still on the lower
quarters as well as the plastic factory plugs in the trunk extensions. The inside edges of both doors are absolutely
spotless and look fantastic! The doors
open and close with ease and the seams are excellent. I can not express how nice the door jams are! They are just incredible and the gold cadmium
on the latches looks like they were just finished! The original trunk floor looks very good and
you can still see the correct factory spot-welds and seam sealer. The frame is in excellent shape and the
undercarriage is also very clean and neat with no rust. All in all the 52
year old paint is absolutely beautiful and by far the nicest I’ve seen for
original paint!!! I did do a complete buff
job on the entire car and you would honestly think that it was just painted.
There are only a couple very minor flaws
in the original paint and of course the factory runs on the underside of the
hood, trunk lid and engine bay. There
only a couple small dings on the Charger located on the very front edge of both
fenders, center front very edge of hood and just above the wheel lip chrome on
the passenger side (All shown in the photo link below). I am also very picky and critical, as well as
honest so please do not hesitate to call me as I will crucify my own car and will do
a complete walk around the car with you on the phone! Please call Chad at 412- 496- 1439 with any questions.
GLASS, CHROME AND TRIM
The glass is original date coded glass, in super good
condition for factory glass! The windshield,
rear glass and all the side glass is extremely nice and only has very minor
marks on them. The front and rear
bumpers, door handles, driver’s side remote mirror and antenna are in very nice
original shape. The trim pieces are super clean and were polished for optimum
shine. The front grill appears to be in very nice original condition with no
cracks. The vent window chrome is also
original and is in beautiful condition with no pitting or marks!
The all original factory CF6 green bucket seat
interior is in very nice shape and has been extremely well taken care of. Even the original carpet shows very well with
little wear. There are no rips, tears or
cracks in the seats, dash pad or headliner. The factory steering wheel and horn ring are
excellent with no cracks or wear. The
dash cluster is in remarkable condition and all factory gauges work and operate
correctly. I only had to install a new dimmer switch. The factory clock will work but the seconds
hand sticks off and on. All lighting
works as should including the flip-up headlights, high/low beams, dome light,
reverse lights, tail lights, parking lights, turn signals, hood mount turn
signals, four-way flashers, map light, and license plate light. The fan motor, wipers, horn, and E-brake all
work. The factory thumb wheel AM radio
is also working. The heater box and all
under dash items are in excellent shape and the factory wiring on this car is
probably the best I’ve ever seen. I also
clean and check many wire connections, fuse box, fuses, bulkhead, light bulbs, sockets,
switches and much more!
The excellent running 318c.i. is the original numbers
matching motor. It has the original factory
point’s distributor and just had new points and condenser installed. This engine runs extremely smooth and very
easy to drive in any given traffic condition. It has a very good idle and
excellent off idle throttle response.
The original 2bbl carb is part number 4421S and was replaced with a
newer reconditioned 2bbl (original is included in a box). The casting date on the 318 is 1-10-68 and casting number is [hidden information] and the
flat ID badge below the drivers side head is PM318R 2370 1159.
The 22” original factory radiator is part # [hidden information] and has excellent
cooling. The entire engine bay is pretty
much original. Only the top half of the
318 was repainted the correct red years ago and I just did the manifolds and
only painted the top lid of the air cleaner.
Everything else is original paint. The Charger even still has it’s original
starter and alternator!
The automatic 904 is also the original numbers
matching transmission and shifts excellent through the gears and is an absolute
blast to drive! The ID badge is
PK[hidden information]Y 2323 4076. The
Charger has excellent drivability and cools well even in stop and go
traffic. This original drive train combo
runs and drives awesome in all conditions whether highway or city driving.
The 8 ¾ rear-end has a 2.76 open unit with a #741
center section and checked rear-end oil.
The center section and rear-end still have several of the factory paint
markings still visible (more than 8)!
The front suspension has been all checked over and
cleaned and only had to replace the idler arm. The front and rear brakes have been checked
over and installed all new brake pads, wheel cylinders, brake flex lines, rear
flex line, master cylinder and adjusted and cleaned the E-brake cables.
