I have decided to try and sell my 1968 Dodge Charger Bullitt tribute car. Why? The truth and honest answer to that is that another Mopar that has grabbed my interest has come up for sale and the only way I can afford to purchase that car is to sell mine. I'm in the position of not having to sell my car, I just want to put it out there and see what happens. If the car I want to buy sells before I sell my car then my car is immediately off the market and not for sale. I have all the reciepts for the parts bought and work done to the car. I will do my best to describe my car below. I'm sure I'll miss a few things because alot has been done to this car over the last three years. There are a few members who have seen my Charger and I can give you their names if you need an opinion other than mine. In my opinion I believe my car is not a museum piece. It is a very nice above average driver. Cost wasn't a factor when I built this car because it was built with the intention of never selling it, it wasn't and isn't an investment. That is because this is the last Mopar I will ever restore and I built it with the equipment I wanted. If I was able to order this car back in 1968 this is how I would have ordered it with the exception of possibly a 426 Hemi. BODY: The car has had both rear quarters replaced with full quarters from AMD. The car has also had a new one piece trunk pan also from AMD installed. The rest of the sheetmetal is original Chrysler sheetmetal. The body was professionally prepped and painted in base/clear. The body is laser staright! The bodyman that did the work has been in the restoration business for nearly 40 years. If there are any questions that I can't answer about any of that work I can set up a meeting or telephone call with the bodyman. OUTER BODY: The front and rear bumpers are new from Goodmark.

The seat belts are all re-webbed with the correct material and even have the correct date code tags sewn on. As you can see, I probably spent more than I should have. I know people that haven't spent as much as I have on a matching numbers car. Cost wasn't a factor because it was never my intention to sell this car. I built it to my liking. I like original looking cars and love all the little but correct details. Again, this car was built to be driven so I had to draw the line somewhere. There is still room to improve this car and take it to the next level. There are still a few small issues that need attention and those will be disclosed and dicussed in detail with a serious buyer. These are small issues that anyone with a little mechanical ability can take care of. That's half the fun of these olf Mopars, loving them with your wrenches. The car has just under 600 miles on it since completion. If you've read what I've written than you can figure I've spent foolish money on this car, but it is now a nearly new car. I have a small Mopar restoration parts business that I just went full time with. I'm very busy as we are only a few weeks away from launching our own website so my time is very precious right now. Not to give off any bad vibes I ask that only serious buyers inquire. I just don't have the time to just shoot the breeze. I apologize and wish I could but again time is working against me right now. I will do my best to comunicate and accomodate/answer any questions or concerns with potential but serious buyers. The best way to reach me is to PM me here and we can go from there. Price 30K. I'm open to offers and have a little wiggle room but they must be realistic and reasonable. I'm easy to get along with but on the same note, I'm not willing to take a beating, sorry. You guys and gals all know what he parts and restoration costs are. I havent included one hour of the time I've spent working on the car because that is a labor of love. The price reflects the cost of the car, the parts, and the body and paint work. Like I stated at the beginning of this ad, I don't have to sell, I want to sell but only if I can purchase the other car that is up for sale. The worse that can happen is that I'm stuck with a beautiful 1968 triple black Charger, and that's not a bad thing Thanks FABO for the ad!
