This particular 1968 Dodge Charger sits in a parking lot waiting for decades to recover

When it was released in mid-1966, the Dodge Charger was an elegant model with a luxurious interior that set a new direction forbrand.

But that quickly changed in 1968, when the Charger was redesigned into a full-fledged muscle car.

Revised for a two-door hardtop and with a more mundane interior, the Charger has entered a new era.

In 2022, the second-gen Charger is arguably the most desirable iteration of the nameplate.

The model goes in the same direction as HEMI-powered cars, which are also the rarest, but chargers equipped with the 440-cubic-inch (7.2-liter) RB V8 are also impressive.

The 1968 Dodge Charger

Dodge equipped the second-generation model with a 6.3-liter 383-cubic-inch V8 engine, as well as a two-barrel and four-barrel carburetor in the second-generation Charger.

While not as popular as the HEMI, the 383 was good enough for a 1968 Charger owner to cling to the car for nearly 50 years.

This car was driven for decades and then parked for a very long time and judging by the lack of the vinyl top and the rust on the surface covering the roof, I would say this classic was also exposed to damage during that time.

But now the car that was being kept in a garage is being prepared for restoration.

There’s just something about the faded blue paint combined with the surface rust and sanded areas.

Aside, this Mopar also comes with an interesting history of when the owner bought it, as the car belonged to a co-worker in 1976.

When he asked about the Charger, he learned that his friend had traded it for the Chevy.

He quickly went to the car park the Charger was in and got it through another exchange.

The model was exchanged for a 1969 Chevrolet Bel Air from US$ 50, we can say that was not a bad deal for a full muscle car from 46 years ago.
