Endless Possibilities: 1968 Dodge Charger R/T

1968-dodge-charger-rt

When I see finds like this Charger R/T, I start thinking about all the various things you could do with it. The seller describes it as a parts car, but I’m not sure there’s even enough left here for it to be a very good parts donor. Instead, I see a blank canvas only limited by someone’s imagination. Repair the rust, source body panels from salvage yards or eBay, and stick a modern Mopar powertrain in it! Originally, it was powered by a 44o but the engine and transmission are long gone, as is the title. Whether you customize or restore it, getting a title might actually end up being the hardest part with this one. If you have some big ideas for this Mopar and don’t mind jumping through hoops to get a title, you can find it here on eBay in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania with a current bid of $2,900.

I’m actually surprised that this Dodge is bid up as high as it is. Yes, these cars are in high demand, but it’s going to be tricky getting the title for this one. The seller claims they lost the title for it years ago and they never had it transferred into their name, so they can’t even request a duplicate. The car is also missing its VIN tag, but the seller might have it stashed away somewhere. I’d want to know for sure that the VIN tag is there before bidding, but that’s just me.

This one could be a big gamble without the title, but if you can get it cheap enough it would be worth picking up. So let’s just imagine for a second that the title wasn’t an issue, what would you do with this one? Would you make it the ultimate sleeper, with a modern powertrain? Or would you give it a full restoration, with all new paint and a period 440?

    Selling a parts car and then saying I have lots of parts let me know what you need. Really
    I striped this car and now I will sell you the parts

    Nice work with the leaves. Seriously – at least one of these could be made into a calendar page.Or background image – ya know in a kind of capitalistic way. Forget that. Hate them flippers!

    What I see is an incipient race car. If it is never going to be street-driven, it does not need to be licensed, so title is not really needed. A lot of the stuff that is missing already would be stripped out for race duty anyway, so again – no problem, Just stuff the engine room full of something appropriate to the class you want to run – and go for it. Price may be tad high for that – but that’s up to the interested party to decide

    It might be possible with the vin number and a friendly on line notary to locate whomever is listed in the Pa data base as a owner and address. Then if lucky then maybe could get duplicate title. Other wise would be a real PIA to get. Good luck to who ever would tackle this.

    There should be a law against someone desecrating a classic car. If you can’t afford to restore it or at least keep it from deteriorating you should be forced to sell it by the Collector Car Constabulary. Too sad.
