The 1968 Dodge Charger 383 was a muscle car produced by the Dodge division of Chrysler Corporation. The Charger was built on a mid-size platform and was available in a wide range of engine options, including a 383 cubic-inch V8. The engine was rated at 300 horsepower and produced 425 lb-ft of torque. This powerful engine, along with the Charger’s sleek and aerodynamic body style, made it a popular choice among car enthusiasts.
The 1968 Charger featured a number of updates over the previous year’s model. The front grille and tail lights were redesigned, and the car featured a new “coke bottle” shape that gave it a more aggressive, sporty look. Inside, the Charger was outfitted with a sporty interior that included high-backed bucket seats and a center console.
The Charger 383 came with a 3-speed Torqueflite Automatic transmission as standard equipment, although you could order it with a 4-speed manual as well. The Charger was also made famous in the 70’s tv show “The Dukes of Hazzard” with the iconic black and orange “General Lee” driven by Bo and Luke Duke.
