This 1978 Dodge Magnum is more than just a car, it’s a work of art. The car has been under the same client ownership for the past 27 years. It has been with heavy hesitation that he has decided to sell it. He purchased the car stock in 1990, but the only original part of the Magnum that remains is the glovebox door and VIN number. Close to $300,000 has been invested in this no-expense-spared Magnum. The entire build process was well thought out and carefully executed with no shortcuts taken. All of the work was performed by professionals, like Classic Coachworks, who Garage Kept Motors personally knows and can vouch for. The entire body of this ’78 Dodge Magnum is made from steel and the interior is all custom finished with only the highest quality materials.

The most noticeable exterior upgrade is the flawless Tahitian Green Pearl paint job that looks as though it changes color when indoors versus outdoors. The car is also sporting a custom-cut windshield, custom hood scoop, custom side mirrors, modified and blended bumpers, hand-formed steel ground effects, and a molded trunk lid. Lighting mods include custom hand-formed LED taillights, modified headlight openings with custom lenses, custom LED running lights and side markers, and a rear spoiler with integrated LEDs. What’s more, the roof has been extended by six inches in order for the rear glass to lay down into the trunk area. The side-door window openings have been lowered by two inches and the opera windows were removed.

This blue/green stunner is powered by a Mopar 400 cubic-inch V8 engine with a mild cam. The car has also been upgraded with front and rear disc brakes, as well as a hand-built suspension system for the torsion bar modification. Moving onto the cabin, the interior sports all custom fabricated surfaces with a real Tiger Wood trim and color-matching ambient lighting. The seats and tracks were also custom built. Additional features include a drop-down rear-mounted T.V. screen, Classic brand gauges, an overhead console and rear side storage for Bluetooth headphones, navigation, 15-inch subwoofers, an open-notch steering wheel, and electric doors.
