General description :
Our customer wanted something distinctive to drive and show. After driving several factory muscle cars, he wanted to be different. His idea was to retain the old car look, but wanted to incorporate it with today's technology.
Dear Peter Klutt,
"I went to Legendary due to your reputation and quality paint work. I chose a Charger because it was rare as far as seeing them around at shows etc. The car definitely has a unique shape and is at the top of the list as one of the best lookers of all time. Legendary's knowledge of choices, made it easy to get excited and do the project. I wanted a bullet proof set up that anybody could work with. We went with a 440 block stroked to 501 with a full roller valve train. No hemi needed here on this resto-modification! The 440 is a legend in its own right and the engine builder was veteran when it comes to building a bullet proof 550hp and 580 torque monster. This is a street car and most of the torque is available at 3000 RPM. With a torqueflight transmission, Ford 9 inch rear-axle with 4.10 gears, the car will do rock solid burnouts and won't hurt any components. Also because of the automatic overdrive system, the 4.10 rear will drop to the equivalent of a 3.23 on the highway!"
"The car was delivered today in perfect condition. I want to thank you and your entire team of professionals. The car is awesome and exceeded my expectations."

Dodge Brothers Company, founded by Horace and John Dodge in 1900, initially produced components for car manufacturers. In 1914 they stepped into car manufacturing when introducing four-cylinder Dodge Model 30 with all-steel body and 12v electric system.
By 1920 Dodge had become the second biggest car manufacturer in the USA, unfortunately the same year both of the brothers died, the company in turn to was sold to Chrysler Corporation in 1928. Dodge found a niche Chrysler Corporation lineup above low-priced Plymouth and medium-priced DeSoto, but somewhat below the top-of-the-line Chrysler
