My father in law's.  He's had it since about '80.  Recently built the 340, mean cam, not a show car but a fun driver.

Nice color combo, satin with the flat aluminum.

I had a ‘68 Roadrunner in ‘71 & ‘72 then my sister totaled it minutes after I left for the Navy boot camp. Then another ‘68 in ‘74 or 75. Used to drag race that one near LA. Then in 1980 a ‘69 Dodge Charger RT SE. A guy gave me the car and $500 for my ‘50 Panhead with a blown engine. That RT was probably the most beautiful car I ever owned.  I’ve got a ‘66 Satellite right now.

This is my cousin's '69 GTX. He bought it new in early '70. For years it was his daily driver but about 20 years he completely rebuilt it and started racing with it. He still has it but has slowed down on his racing schedule and only runs it 3 or 4 times a year. He bought a 2019 Dodge Charger Hellcat But sold it a few months later. He said his monthly insurance payments were more than the car payment.

Any chance that car is a 68? The round marker lamps were only used on 1968 cars and did not meet 1969 model year requirements. Must be either fiberglass fenders, or replacements as these are not present in the photo? 

I like the "Sox & Martin" retro paint scheme myself.

No, it is a '69. But as far as fenders or other parts being replaced they could very well be. l know he has put in several different engines. Like l say he bought the car in 1970, 52 years ago so l'm sure a lot of things have been replaced and/or repaired.

My dads first new car was a 69 dart swinger with the 340 and a 4 speed. He needed grandpa to cosign his loan for him, and grandpa wanted to check the car out himself before he did. So grandpa goes to the dealership and finds the dart on the lot and is looking it all over. The salesman comes over and tells grandpa, "Sir, you dont want that car. That's a young man's death trap." He still cosigned though.
