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!
