The 1968 Charger marked the introduction of the second generation and included a new design with new hidden headlight grille, curvier body, recessed backlight, refined tail, and less chrome. The rear quarters were bulged a little for a more muscular look, along with the move to a semi-fastback style. Production was up more than 500% and the R/T package made its debut.
The R/T package was known as part of Dodge’s “Scat Pack” line, and also was available as special models of the Coronet, Super Bee, and Dart. The car came standard with the 440 Magnum, which produced 375 hp. It featured special “bumble-bee” stripes, which were two thin stripes that surrounded two thicker stripes.
