Video: Muscle Rod Shop’s “SlamCharger” Is One Clean ’68 R/T

No one would argue that the second generation Dodge Chargers are anything but a big, hulking muscle car. From the razor-sharp beltline running up and over the large coke-bottle shoulders to the pinched joint, and arching up and over the broad fenders, the Charger was anything but a svelte little machine. So why would Muscle Rod Shop of San Antonio, Texas feel the need to widen their “SlamCharger” anymore?

The answer is meat. Tucked deep within the Charger’s wheel wells are a set of Centerline Lazer II 18×8 up front, and massive 20×12 rollers in the rear, wrapped in Nitto Invo, 245/40ZR18s and 315/35ZR20s, respectively. Besides the widened body, it also rides on channeled suspension and a bevy of other mods that rest this big B-body down in the weeds. Thankfully, mods to the front suspension are minimal as it retains mostly rebuilt stock settings, as is with the rear suspension, with only raised spring perches as the only true custom addition.

According to a post in Muscle Horsepower, “Steve [Enochs] is a very talented man, who followed his dream and opened the Muscle Rod Shop that is a place with different approaches towards car designing and building. This 1968 Dodge Charger that you see here is his car, and he has made many modifications on it. It has a Chrysler 389ci big block engine with stock pan, Melling pump, COMP Cam’s lifters, Weiand dual-plane intake manifold, Mopar Performance distributor, Doug’s 1.75 inch headers, stock water pump, custom X-pipe and dual 3 inch MagnaFlow mufflers.”
