Modern Bullitt Charger build

I started the restoration of my 1968 Dodge Charger with a plan to build a modern Bullitt. The outside of the car will look like the movie car with exception to the wheels, tires and a lower stances.
Im planning on a set of one off 17 wheels to match the look of the hubcaps use on the Bullitt Charger. This will allow larger brakes and wider tires. This hubcap was made to look like a mag wheel and now
Im going to have a wheel made to look like a hubcap. The motor will be a gen III Hemi 6.4 or the new Hellcat if it would fit under the stock hood? And a 6 speed manual trans. I have a lot of details to work out but for now
I will bag and tag the parts and get the car media blasted.
Thanks
Pat





This how car looked when I bought it a 1 years ago.




And now the parts start coming off!

Looking forward to this build.

I own my car, it does not own me.

If this is going to be anything like the Mustang build done by Kurt and yourself, that Charger is going to be a jewel.

Both Kurt and is mustang are doing great, except their about nine hours apart. He is at culinary school and his car is here at home. I take it out every couple of weeks to help keep the tires from having flat spots
Thanks

man I will be watching this thread.. I enjoyed the Bullitt build and quality of work. it will be very interesting on the updates of the charger. I am working on a 70 charger and 73 roadrunner clone with my brother. the issues we have run across changing from the 318 automatic to a 440 4 speed on the RR have been challenging. and finding parts for the 70 has been a fun event as well.. here is a shot of the Charger..
and here is the Roadrunner clone.

Bullitt 3130 has a few modifications , JLT CAI, 3.73 gears, BMR rear lower control arms, TimSpeed performance Custom rear upper control arms, Traenkner Bros Performance rear shock tower brace, SCT 93 octane Tune, Silverhorse Racing oil catch can, and an teenage(13) female Mechanic.

Still bagging and tagging the charger so I can get the car to the media blaster. Overall the car is in great shape with all of its original sheet metal and no accidents. The front fenders have never been off the car as I had to remove the great factory undercoating to get to the fasteners for the splash guards. The media blaster I’m sure will uncover a few surprises. But for now here is the Good the Bad and the Ugly to date.
The Good, all of the frame rails are in excellent condition with only one small area of rust on the right side trans cross member and no accidents front or rear.

The Bad, a little rust on the driver’s side floor that will take an 8” x 12” patch panel








And the Ugly, I knew I would be replacing the trunk floor when I bought the car, but the back yard patch job is Ugly! On the good side both trunk drop and frame rails are rust free.





Thanks
Pat

I received the 1st rendering of the custom wheel I’m having made to look like the hubcaps used on the Bullitt Charger. There are a few small changes that need to be made, such as the center emblem is not orientated correctly. There will be a tool that will fit the emblem which will allow access to the lug-nuts. I’m very happy with the 1st drawings of this one off wheel and look forward to seeing them made.

This is the original hubcap


And here is the custom version of the hubcap






Thanks
Pat

I have been trying to restore the parts as I remove them instead of at the end of the project. The left side vent box is the last item I did and it cleaned up nicely. Here are a few before and after pictures.
Thanks!
Pat
