Dodge and SRT Offer New Customization Options for Drivers

Dodge and SRT will be offering drivers a bunch of new ways for Charger and Challenger owners to flaunt their muscle cars.

The all-new Shakedown Package is available for the Challenger R/T Shaker, R/T Plus Shaker, and the 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker.  The Shakedown Package adds black racing stripes that trace up the car, starting on the rear decklid and continue over the roof and then around the Shaker hood scoop.  The package also adds white-face gauges on the instrument cluster and gives the audio system an upgraded Alpine audio system.  The Shakedown Package was inspired by the classic 1971 Dodge Shakedown Challenger that wowed the crowds at the 2016 SEMA show.

The Shakedown Package also comes in a variety of colors.  This includes the iconic B5 Blue and Plum Crazy paints.

“Dodge//SRT has a rich history of using iconic heritage and high-impact colors and unique graphics to make our vehicles look custom, straight from the factor,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Brands for FCA NA.  “Whether a customer remembers B5 and Plum Crazy from when they were new in the ‘60s and ‘70s or they’re a new customer today, these paint colors and unique Shaker stripes stand out in the crowd and speak to our customers’ passion for their cars and their love of the Dodge and SRT brands.”

A 1969 Dodge Charger Hellcat?

Nostalgia is a powerful thing in the car world.  When someone gets attached to a certain car, it can hold forever.  When it comes to muscle cars, this is usually very true for drivers.  The 1969 Dodge Charger is one of the all-time classic muscle cars.  What if someone wanted to keep that iconic look of the classic Charger but give it the power of the modern day Charger?  Someone was crazy enough to try and the result is amazing!

The Drive has the break down of the project form Cleveland Power and Performance.  The project is to take the modern 707-horsepower Hellcat engine and get it to work in a 1969 Dodge Charger body.  The biggest hurdle is that the body of the 69 Charger was never meant to handle the Hellcat engine, making it harder than simply swaping engines.  In order to get this to work, there needed to be extensive work done.

Check out the article on the Drive to see the full breakdown of what the process looked like.  And here is the video of the final working product: a 1969 Dodge Charger Hellcat!
