Hello to the Users from the States and those of you which are interested in American Muscle Cars. A friend made a pic of that car and we are trying to figure out what kind it is.

Big version: Width: 1200 Height: 800 File size: 382kb


We think it's a Camaro 68/69 but are very unsure b/c the rear window is different and there are other lighs as well as a not so steep side rear window.

Thanks for your help.

If I didn’t see the rearlights, I’d guess it were a Plymouth GTX. Or am I far away from the right answer?

Nice to see such a musclecar with a DresDen plate. Cool car in a cool city.  Smile

Tschüü,
David

Looks like a '68/'69/'70 Dodge Charger.

Someone needs to be shot for the crappy wheels, though.

You’re right, it’s 1968-70 Charger. My guess was apparently quite far-fetched.  embarrassed

Indeed. Absolutely disgusting.

The side marker reflectors make it a 1969 Dodge Charger. The purple paint is not an original color, that color and the weird wheels make it look just plain ugly.

It’s exactly them who made me guess GTX.  Silly

IIRC, they were on all Chrysler small and midsized cars in that year. A very few of the big cars got side marker lights. All Chrysler products had those small "dot" type side marker lights in 1968, the first year side marker lights or reflectors were required in the US.

It's interesting how many of the best examples of classic American muscle cars from the 60s/early 70s are found in Europe. All such cars in America ended up in the hands of teenagers by the 1980s and got either wrecked, mechanically ragged, or modified beyond recognition. (I know - I was one. I had a '68 Camaro RS which did not survive my ownership Sad.). The few that were exported to Europe when they were new have always been in the hands of fairly well-off people who used them for weekend cars, and they NEVER got handed over to teens.

As a result, the cars in europe are frequently cars that have never been ragged, older, careful owners, and fewer miles.

It's a 1969 Dodge Charger. The 1968 models used the same body but had two round tail lights per side as well as small, round side marker lights with no reflectors (the Charger in the Steve McQueen movie Bulitt is a '68). The 1970 models have a "loop"-style front bumper and an undivided grille (the Charger used in the movie The Fast And The Furious is a '70). The corner of the car's front bumper can be seen in the posted photo, which in conjunction with the oblong taillights positively identifies the car as a 1969 model (the Charger referred to as "General Lee" from the Dukes of Hazzard TV series is also a '69).

Good spot! The "Plum Crazy Metallic" paint wasn't available from the factory until 1970.

Ughh. As a classic car owner/enthusiast I hate seeing it when people cut a hole in the hood and stick a big blower on top of the engine. Makes it look a little to "hot wheels".

Exactly...especially with those damned fugly wheels. If that guy had any brains at all, he'd buy the right block. Wouldn't need a blower with that bad boy under the hood.
