.

Wish there was a side view or interior shot of the black R/T . My 3x9 RT/SE came from Cali in 2003 , and resided not that far from this dealership . As the car in the pic , small front bumperettes early car and headrests should mean before Jan 1st car .Headrests therefore being an option . Looking at the pass side rear window , looks to be tinted , and can't really tell , but looks like might have rocker molding ( focus on front WW trim at bottom ) . Also looks to have a woodgrain wheel.
 Wish there was interior shot , mine has column shift , six way , PW , AC .

Well, that showroom picture really tells a story...A DRIP pan under a NEW car? THis validates all my efforts to stop leaks. If the factory couldn't properly seal a brand new engine, what luck does a guy have with 50 year old parts? The OEMs really have improved gasket sealing in the time since. I have 320,000 miles on my 2007 Ram and it does not leak at all.

Wow could you imagine be the winner and having to house seven '68 Chargers? Keeping them all these years, having assigned Chargers for each day of the week and holding true to it all those years?

I'm sure that's not the case to whoever won that contest or we would've heard about it somewhere. You would be a rock star at the Mopar shows with seven'68 Chargers lined up.

Thanks for sharing TT.  cheers

The oil pan bolts on big block Mopar engines go through the pan rail into the open crankcase. They need thread sealer or they will leak oil.

Holy shit...REALLY Huh
If true, that is a great thing to learn! It would clearly explain why I have had such shitty luck sealing up this engine! Son of a bitch...Now I want to get the car up on a lift and pull each bolt out one at a time....clean out the threaded holes and reinstall the bolts with a sealant.
Shoot, man, if this seals up my engine I will be quite grateful.  Check back with me in a month or so.

NO they don't !
They are BLIND HOLES in the Block !

That said, the Oil CAN migrate between the Oil Pan Gaskets & Windage Tray, then make it's way OUT around the Bolt Threads = LEAK !

Remove the Bolts one at a time, clean the Bolts, Spray and CLEAN the Holes/Bolts with Brake Clean & Blow Dry, then re-install with a silicone product called "The Right Stuff". Never hurts to put a small dab of the Right Stuff UP into the Hole before re-installing the Bolt as well.... it will fill any potential voids around the Bolt that the Oil is migrating through as well.

1972 Charger, never seen that vinyl treatment ever! I would say custom job. Looks like H3LL.
