My Garage

1968 Charger / 360 Magnum crate motor

by Alex Campadonia

I obtained this 1968 Dodge Charger as a numbers matching 318/904 car. The original color of this car was white with green interior and a black vinyl top. I have been in possession of her for over 18 months now as this is also my first car. Over the summer of 2003 I dropped in a Crate 360 Magnum engine. Future plans call for a swap to 3.55 gears and hopefully a 4-speed. Black interior would also be nice considering the current dark green doesn't fit my taste too well, color is still up for debate but I'm leaning on keeping it white. This is my daily driver to high school and an occasional frolic against local Hondas on Friday and Saturday nights. Even with a small block, auto, and an open 2.76 rear end, I can still make some fried rice. This baby screams on the freeway!
