The 1968 Charger featured sweeping front fenders (hiding subtle elliptical fender-top arches that often are sanded out in restorations), an enormous trunk (further elongated by the sail panel roof coming off the C-pillars), and wide stance. It was a total departure from the heavy, humpbacked 1966-1967 design that was adorned with fussy body sculpting and “Jet Pack” details recalling 1960s show car ideas. The 1968 Charger, in contrast, was unlike anything on the road: clean, mean, and void of frivolous adornments like hood emblems or side markings aside for a simple “Charger” script (and R/T badges) centered on the kammback tail and offset in the grille. The final touch was the offset fuel filler inspired by race cars, making it the epitome of power and presence.
