1968 Dodge Gets a Second Chance After 40 Years in the Barn
The first generation Dodge Charger has become a popular classic among car enthusiasts, while some of these cars have ended up in museums and exhibitions, many have been left to rot in landfills and garages....

One particular copy of the 1968 Charger was lucky enough to be found after 40 years of vegetation in a barn.

The car has suffered from a lot of rust over the years, especially on the left front fender.

The paint has come off, but the vinyl top is in good condition, still covering every inch of the roof.

The upholstery, on the other hand, is rotten and in need of a complete replacement.

However, the floors are still intact, which is unusual for a car of this age.

After 40 years without a sip of gasoline, the engine is still trying to start.

It will undoubtedly need some work, but the fact that it's still attempting to turn over after all these years is impressive.

It's unclear whether this 1968 Charger will be completely restored or simply given a facelift, an engine swap, and a return to the road.

In any case, it's great to see that a rare car like this will be given a second chance at life.
