Dodge Charger Tank Top
Dodge Charger Tank Top – Another addition and tribute to my all time favorite American muscle car, the Dodge Challenger Classic. The design shows a custom and supercharged 1969 Charger R/T and comes in a slightly distressed and vintage looking print. The complete design has been drawn by myself and is only available from GTO Clothing.

The 1969 model year brought few modifications. Exterior changes included a new grille with a center divider and new longitudinal taillights both designed by Harvey J. Winn. A new trim line called the Special Edition (SE) was added. This could be available by itself or together with the R/T, thus making an R/T-SE. The SE added leather inserts to the front seats only, chrome rocker moldings, a wood grain steering wheel, and wood grain inserts on the instrument panel. A sunroof was added to the option list, but was ordered on only 260 Chargers. The bumble bee stripes returned as well, but were changed slightly. Instead of four stripes, it now consisted of a wide stripe framed by two smaller stripes. In the middle of the stripe, an R/T cutout was placed. If the stripe was deleted, a metal R/T emblem was placed where the R/T cutout was. Total production was around 89,199 units.
The television series The Dukes of Hazzard (1979–1985) featured a 1969 Dodge Charger that was named The General Lee. “The General” sported the Confederate battle flag painted on the roof and the words “GENERAL LEE” over each door. The windows were always open, as the actors would do a window slide; this do to an accident which would not permit a door to be opened. Contrary to belief; the doors were never welded shut. The number “01” is painted on both doors. Also, when the horn button was pressed, it played the first 12 notes from the de facto Confederate States anthem “Dixie“. The car performed spectacular jumps in almost every episode, and the show’s popularity produced consumer interest in the car. Source=Wikipedia
