1969 Charger

"A :09 second car that I could drive on the street...that's the goal!" stated the owner of this 1969 Wicked Purple Charger.  He wanted something different that he could either race, drive or show and this 1969 Charger is just that!

It started life with a 383 and now has a 605 cubic inch, aluminum block Hemi.  The back half has been altered to handle the big rubbers, yet the rear-end is still narrowed.  It has a full cage, plus new frame rails that have been installed along with tubular front cross-members to handle all the power and the "race" portion of the car. 

When the motor simply didn't fit under the hood scoop, finding a unique scoop to handle the job became mandatory.  The owner even built a model of the car and tried on a variety of different hood scoops since the Charger didn't come with one.  When nothing on the market "did it" for him, Larry offered up a scoop once used on a Riley and Scott IndyCar.  It's all carbon fiber - which ties to the many carbon fiber touches that Nash has added including the one piece dash and the rear panel.

Before applying the deep, deep, wicked purple paint - that has just a touch of candy to it, all the lines were smoothed; no wiper stands, etc...  The Charger is finished off with a handful of Orange anodized components including the motor mounts and shock hats.

There is still work to be done on this unique beauty, however the owner is looking forward to wrapping it up along with his son and enjoying it for the summer.
