The Dodge Charger 1969 is an Iconic American Muscle car, which became famous through the TV Series “The Dukes of Hazard” and the Hollywood production “Too Fast Too Furious” . The objective of this project is to restore this classic US Muscle car to its original form, using original parts wherever possible. The car is absolutely legal in Thailand and comes with a Blue Book, matching Engine and Chassis Numbers. It can be transferred to any province in Thailand, due to its legal status. East Coast Choppers Monster Garage takes pride in offering this exiting project. The customer is able to fulfil his vision of his Charger by selecting various available elements of the car (see: Custom Charger)
Starting Vehicle / History
Our Dodge Charger 1969 was imported from the USA as a complete and functioning car. We then carefully disassembled the car and secured all new or refurbished parts for those which needed replacement. The car chassis was then stripped to the bare metal, any rust fixed, any bent panels replaced. Proper metal primer applied and painted in multiple layers of Vivid Black and 2K Lacquer. Now its a perfect Body/Chassis to start the Assembly Process. Come by for a viewing to appreciate the work done so far.
