69 Dodge Charger Hellcat Gallery

 

Follow here to watch this awesome creation come to life!

 

SCROLL DOWN TO SEE INDIVIDUAL PHOTOS OF THE BUILD IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER. 

 

Here is the very solid and clean 1969 Dodge Charger that will be getting upgraded with all the power and goodies of a new Hellcat

 

We will be using this un-hit 2016 Challenger Hellcat shell to set the 69 body onto. This will allow us to retain the all of the modern Hellcat interior and suspension parts. 

 

 

Powering the 69 Charger will be this 4k mile 6.2L Supercharged HEMI removed from a 2016 Charger Hellcat. 

 

 

Here is the 69 being stripped down to start mock-up for fitting the 2016 shell underneath

 

 

 

Here is the 69 body being mocked up on the cut and shaved down 16 shell

 

 

 

Here is the 69 sitting on the 2016 shell. Now its time for lots of measuring and fabrication to get everything in place. 

 

 

 

The 69 body was pulled off of the 2016 shell and it is time to get structural. Our custom made tube steel frame rails have been fabricated to fit, mocked up, and removed to clean and paint the 2016 rockers. The rails that we fabricated were also cleaned up, prepped and painted. Stay tuned to see the frame come together. 

 

 

 

With the cowl area fabrication getting close to completion, it is time to mock up fitment of the cooling system and the driveline.

 

 

 

The engine and trans are mocked up in the vehicle, now it is time to add some flavor to the front end! We are fabricating a hood that shares queues from both the classic styling of the 69 and the aggressive look of the Hellcat. 

 

 

With the hood design all mocked up, it is time to cut and weld! Take a look at the functional scoop and the accents on our custom hood as the are taking shape. We also did some work the the door latch and striker area to boot!

 

 

It is time to start merging the 69 Charger body and 16 Challenger body together. With the 69 Shell off of the floor pan, we finished off the rockers and painted them 

 

 

 

After reinforcing the frame and rocker sections of the vehicle, we set the 69 body back down on the 16 floor pan to measure our gaps and check the under-hood fitment.

 

 

While doing finesse work on seems, cleaning up welds, etc we closed some gaps and started putting the finishing touched on the hood. 

 

 

 

Back to the grind! We did some more structural work and added some clearance in the rear wheel well to allow for a larger tire. We also eliminated the pinch weld on the front aprons for hood clearance. The KW suspension arrived and rear springs are mocked up!
