Charger R/T Special Edition
Auto, AC, Special Edition package
Purchased summer before my senior year in high school, was my first car after driving a mustang my dad provided to me. Purchased with money earned from delivering newspapers each morning and afternoon. Was totally stock, original paint and had numbers matching motor when I got it, motor went south and was replaced by another 69 charger 440 magnum. Put it in storage when joined military, has been off the road ever since. Just now trying to put it back on road.

Original exhaust manifolds. Hoses are braided steel, carburetor is a edelbrock performer 750, chrome 1 wire alternator, new wiring harness, firecore distributor and coil.
Factory leather seats, seatcovers replaced with legendary auto leather replacements. front and back replaced, original pieces were in good shape only drivers seat had worn thru. Replaced all anyway. Woodgrain dash is original and has not been replaced. All gauges are original. Tic toc TaC is part of the rally package. Woodgrain steering wheel.
v21 hood treatment, only deviation from stock, hood could have wicked glare sometimes in florida sun, if I had ordered the car, it would have had this option so when I repainted the car, I added the v21 treatment using authentic organisol paint. Came stock with right side mirror, one of 57 cars ordered with one.
Have installed a Bluetooth amplifier under the buddy seat, which drives vibration speakers that are installed in seat backs and footwells. Also have a woofer box in trunk. Original AM/FM radio still sits in original location, and still works, to speaker in dash and read deck.
