Project has taken far to long .....for a multitude of reasons.(maybe a story for another time).

1968 Charger RT. 440 spd. . 4.10 Dana. Power steering and power disc brakes added.
Original exterior color is EE1. Interior was converted to white (originally black ) during the restoration.

Edit- Pictures added

Yes Its EE1. A LOT of time was spent matching areas of the car where you could still see the original paint.

He was [-] that close to going with QQ1 instead. I did a spray out of both colors and that was the final push it took to convince him keep it EE1
Color is just called Dark Blue poly. In my garage and until I turn the lights on or open the garage doors, it looks black in person its that dark. But once out in the sunlight IT POPS big time

White seats, door panels, upper door pads ( coronet doenst have ) headliner, headliner trim , rear glass trim. - All white.

Dash, kick panels, seat belts, carpet, console , steering column , upper windshield trim moulding and A pillars all black

On a 68 the white is a pearl that pictures DO NOT do it justice. Trust me , its looks absolutely killer in person. Come up and take a look for yourself , your close enough. But the car leaves next Friday afternoon for home.

BAck in the day, a friend had a 67 GTO with white interior... We were pretty anal about our cars and I remember him walking around with a bottle of interior cleaner in one hand and a towel in the other hand most of the time..... LOL

Those interior pics brought back that memory... LOL, the good ole days
