1968 Charger: Faster than a Speeding Bullitt?

One Last Stop in Surf City for Menacing 1968 Dodge Charger

A Mopar enthusiast from Austria is the proud new owner of this black beauty. However, before this 1968 Charger set off for its new European home, it found its way to the Classic Industries showroom in Huntington Beach, California.

The sharp bodywork and red line tires of this 1968 Dodge Charger create an imposing presence. It's easy to see why the Charger was chosen for McQueen's enemies.

The new owner was on a tight schedule, but fortunately for all of us, he did have enough time for the Classic Industries photography team to get a few shots of this immaculate Mopar icon.

For enthusiasts, a car's story can be more important than the car itself. Whether it’s spending memorable moments in the garage with dad, date nights and cruise-ins with that special someone, or highly-embellished tales of well-earned race victories, a car with a unique history becomes much more than mere transportation, it becomes the main character in its own story. The latest addition to the Classic Industries collection, a unique 1969 Camaro built by one of the greatest legends in drag racing, is a character with its own unique history. The story begins with John Penso, part of the Flying Dutchman funny car crew and close friend of drag racing legend “Mr. Chevrolet” Dick Harrell. When Penso wanted a fast car for the street, but couldn’t find anything fast enough, he knew Harrell was the man to see. Penso made arrangements to fly to the Dick Harrell Performance Center in Kansas City, Missouri and drive a 427-powered 1969 Camaro back to his home in California.
