Back when musclecars were all the rage, few buyers had the wherewithal to fully option them out. If you were a younger man, the money was an issue; if you were older, you often realized that those add-ons could add up quickly, and subsequently took just those things you thought suited yours needs and desires. While big-optioned cars were sometimes done by dealerships for demonstration purposes, the '67 Charger shown here was built with an even grander use in mind as it rolled off the assembly line in September 1966, early in the model run. 

Among the special option trim pieces in 1967 were front and rear bumper guards, fender mounted turn signal light housings, and special made wheel style covers, available only with 15’ wheels and very hard to come by today.
