1968 Dodge ‘Dumbo’ Charger Heads To Barrett-Jackson Tomorrow

1,000 Horsepower, HELLEPHANT-Powered Destroyer Gray B-Body, Is Simply Striking...

In the world of iconic cars, there’s a beast going to the auction block, and it goes by the name ‘Dumbo.’ No, we’re not talking about the Disney elephant – we’re talking about a mean machine set to turn heads at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction on Friday, January 26th, 2024.

Not Your Ordinary Charger –

Dumbo isn’t your ordinary ’68 Dodge Charger; it’s a powerhouse born from the collaboration of David Stapp and builder Jimmie Anderson of Wildthings Customs. Inspired by Mopar’s own 1968 Dodge Super Charger Concept, Dumbo boasts a supercharged 7.0-liter (426 cubic-inch) HELLEPHANT HEMI® V8 engine, earning its nickname.

Power –

Under the hood, you’ll find a monstrous all-aluminum HELLEPHANT engine with a massive 3.0-liter IHI supercharger, delivering a jaw-dropping 1,000 horsepower and 950 lb.-ft. of torque right from the factory. This isn’t just a show pony; it’s a thoroughbred with a built Magnum T-56 6-speed manual transmission and a Strange Engineering Dana 60 rear axle with a 4.10 rear axle ratio.

Exterior –

The exterior of Dumbo is dressed in Destroyer Gray paint with a black tail stripe and blue Hellephant logos, giving it a look that means business. The Ringbrothers billet door handles, hideaway X-LED headlights, and Digi-Tails LED taillights add a touch of modern elegance to this classic ride.

Interior –

Step inside, and you’ll be greeted by a gray leather interior that seamlessly blends classic style with modern features. The pistol-grip shifter, push-to-start ignition, and cupholders bring a contemporary twist to the nostalgia of the ’68 Charger. Underneath, Dumbo rides on Magnum Force suspension with Viking coilovers, Wilwood 4-piston disc brakes, and Rushforth alloy wheels.

But the real show is set to happen at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction, where Dumbo will cross the block, ready to find a new owner. With its unique features, raw power, and a nod to automotive history, this custom ’68 Dodge Charger is more than just a car – it’s a legend in the making.
