For anyone who’s wondered what dreams are really made of, Cleveland Power & Performance has your answer. The creative crew at CPP has embarked on the amazing journey of seamlessly blending the iconic muscular styling of the 1969 Charger with the modern marvel of a Hellcat drive-train, chassis and interior.
This creation is currently underway and we can already see that this build is very unique and not your typical modern engine swap in an older vehicle. CPP figured the most ideal way to mate these two cars would be to place the 69 Charger body on the 2016 Challenger Hellcat’s modified frame. In doing this they are able to keep the modern interior and driveline completely intact making this truly a car with the best of both worlds. Although they are using a Challenger for the chassis and frame the engine and drivetrain was removed from a 4,000 miles Charger Hellcat.
Nothing on the build has been over looked and it seems that the finished product will more closely resemble a factory built vehicle than a hand built one off project. Details down to making the hood scoop a functional cooling vent for the Hellcat’s supercharger, panel gaps being measured for exact factory style fitment, and the driver seat being set in lower allowing for more head room shows that every last detail has been executed perfectly.
The car is not totally complete but it does run and drive with CPP posting a little 707 horsepower Hellcat burnout teaser video for us all to drool over. No word on pricing yet but expect a car of this magnitude to easily pull in six figures. Check out their website for more updates on the build as these guys are moving quick on this one.
