For the Love of Mopar

It's "Mopar or no car"

1969 Dodge Charger

This 1969 Dodge Charger can snap your head back as it launches down the quarter mile, drown out conversation with open headers, or quietly join the area car cruises. The owner of this car is a die hard Mopar man and has found ways to enjoy his car to fullest for the decades that he's owned it.




Equipped for the drag strip and boasting over 600HP, the 1969 Charger is a lot of fun to have around our shop. It was recently in for some added goodies including electronic cutouts from Quick Time Performance (see how they work in the video above or shop for them on Amazon), aluminum American Racing Wheels, and much wider Hoosier racing tires. Now she's ready for her next run down the 1/4 mile.

She's not stock my any means (sorry, we can't tell you all her secrets), but the modifications don't stop under the hood. There is a hidden feature on the interior. By adding a swivel plate to the base of the passenger seat her owner will be able to continue to enjoy her Mopar Muscle for decades to come. Although no longer behind the wheel, he gets a front row view for the wheel stands.

This car's owner has shared numerous stories of road trips and days at the drag strip where he would race it on the weekends. It is a pleasure to help him enjoy burnouts with a front row seat once again. By the grin on his face, it's obvious that he's has a deep seated love of his Mopar.
