Stunning, restored 1968 Dodge Charger, rare, and well sought after year and color combination. Purchased this car in 1996 in Ohio, and went through a painstaking, long, father & son restoration. All rusty metal replaced, media blasted, and epoxy primed. Some modifications, done, so would consider this more resto-mod than factory restoration. Been in the family for 27 years, well taken care of, barely driven, and with family now, have no time.
