1968 Dodge Charger R/T | Scott Crawford - Reach For The Sky II


I enjoyed seeing this 1971 Dodge yesterday at a local carshow. My first car (in 1978) was a ‘72 Nova, so as a teenager I came up against '71 Dodges, such as the car pictured, racing from redlight to redlight. This car is a 340 and has an automatic. I assume the differential is in the low 3.00 range. Nice looking car and a lot of memories brought back.


Take a look at this 1970 Dodge Coronet R/T with a 440 Magnum mated to a 3-speed automatic. The big block puts out 375 horsepower and a whopping 480 ft/lbs of torque. This girl is covered in factory “Dark Burnt Orange.” The owner said the carb is a factory Carter in the 800 cfm range. The massive breather mating to the functional hood scoop makes the size of the carb pretty obvious.


1968 Dodge Charger R/T clothed in factory “Black”. Funny that there is no fancy name for the factory paint. This car has a 383 attached to a 3-speed automatic putting out 330 horsepower and 425 ft/lbs of torque. Enlarge the interior picture and you’ll see the 150 mph speedometer. Notice how wide the rear tires are. Nice car!
