First-Gen Dodge Charger Gets Second Life

In 1966 Dodge would bring the first Charger to market and by 1967 the first-generation of the car was on its way out. During that two year first-generation run sales were not ideal and for 1968 the model would undergo a complete redesign, but that’s neither here nor there as this 1967 Dodge Charger underwent a modern day restoration.

 

While there is no restomod defining modification it sort of goes without saying that the engine will be getting more power and that rings true here. This second-generation Charger now features a 528cu.-in. Ray Barton V8 engine with 651hp and 618lb.-ft. of torque. Built by Johnson’s Hot Rod Shop the team their worked to give the charger a stance reminiscent of funny cars, but updated through a slew of modifications including RideTech coilovers, Magnum Ford 4-link rear-suspension and K-member with tubular control arms and sway bar. Further giving the car that aggressive look is the tubbed rear which saw the rear wheel wells moved in 3-inches on each side.

 

Once a model year that saw sales decline drastically over the prior year and lead to a full redesign, this 1967 is certain to fetch a pretty penny at Mecum’s Glendale auction March 11-14.
