1968 Dodge Charger R/T J-Code 426 Hemi at Auction

During the early-1960s, automakers were exploring new ideas in the personal luxury and specialty car segments. Chrysler, fast to enter the specialty car market, selected their Dodge Division to enter the marketplace with a bigger model to fit between the “pony car” Ford Mustang and the “personal luxury” Ford Thunderbird. For 1964 Chrysler offered a new 365 horsepower, 426-cid Wedge in its Dodge and Plymouth models, while the 426 race Hemi was presented in Dodge and Plymouth models for sanctioned drag racing endeavors.

The 426 street Hemi became a legend and the car ended up becoming, many would say, the most desirable high performance engine ever bolted into a passenger car. It is suggested that they ruled the road from 1966 to 1971.
This example, offered for sale is finished in Code MM1 Bronze Metallic with black interior and black bumblebee rear stripes.
