Sinister styling meets Mopar muscle.

From the Bullitt villains to The Dukes of Hazzard heroes, the second-generation (1968 to 1970) Dodge Charger is one of the most well-known movie/TV cars of all time, and it just so happens to be one of the best Mopars of all time. One reason for this correlation is that the Charger combines a distinct and sporty styling with Mopar's usual under-hood muscle. If you're looking for a car with mean looks and even meaner muscle, then check out the 1968 Dodge Charger R/T up for sale by Hollywood Motors.

Looking at the VIN, this Charger is a true R/T trim level that originally came with the four-barrel carb 440 CID V8, and this engine has been rebuilt and given numerous upgrades. From the factory, this engine produced 375 horsepower, but it has been beefed up with a fuel injection system, Edelbrock heads and an Edelbrock intake. Standard four-wheel disc brakes, air conditioning and power steering help ensure this car is easy to drive, while features such as the power steering, adjustable Hotchkis suspension give this car amazing handling.

In addition to the engine and suspension upgrades, this Charger has been given a soft restomod treatment with stylish Boyd aluminum wheels, drilled and slotted rotors and a digital gauge cluster. As far as looks go, this Charger is even more sinister with a show-quality paint job (not an easy feat with black paint) to go along with a matching black interior. This car still has the factory bench seat, column shifter and wood grain, three-spoke steering wheel.
