LONDON, England – Classic Investments, a UK-based restoration specialist, has completed restoration of what it describes as ”an awesome” 1969 Dodge Charger and is looking for a buyer for ”a no-holds barred piece of American muscle”.
The cars were made famous through the 1960’s classic film ”Bullitt” as well as the 1970’s TV show ”Dukes of Hazzard”. The car in the images has been upgraded with high-performance components and is ready to be enjoyed in modern traffic.
The car was fully stripped and had all rust removed, before being rebuilt to better-than-new condition.
The original suspension has been rebuilt to include adjustable Koni shock-absorbers, the steering made sharp with polyurethane bushes, and the brakes have been upgraded with a new Servo unit, 11” discs and rotors at the front and 11” uprated drums at the rear.
The seven-litre Magnum V8 engine has been fully balanced and has a performance camshaft, a Holley 770 Street Avenger Series 4 barrel carburettor, and stainless-steel exhaust.
ALL PARTS RE-CHROMED
The interior is said to have been comprehensively re-trimmed and sound-proofed and all original components rebuilt – radio, gauges, speedometer, switches and centre console – and custom woodgrain steering-wheel. and Italian leather unholstery tailored.
Classic Investments carried out the entire restoration, including re-chroming of all parts, reupholstering and restoring seats and interior trim.
Agris Alksnis, founder of Classic Investments, told The Corner in a media release: “More than 3000 hours went into making this the ultimate Dodge Charger. For anyone who wants a classic muscle car, but without the fear of unreliability, this is the car for an enthusiast.”
