High Impact

  • Body: XV added their subframe connectors, engine compartment brace, lower radiator support/frame rail connector and inner fender shock tower brace to an original, all-steel '68 Charger unibody. All the glass is new, and the trim is either new or restored original.
  • Paint: XV's own blend of Brighter-Than-Bright Red, sprayed on at their Irvington, New York shop.
  • Interior: When only the best will do: Custom-leather-upholstered Recaro front buckets flank an XV custom console (that contains the high-zoot Alpine sound system's head unit), the stock back seat got the same custom leather as the fronts, the carpets are custom wool ones, plus there's a custom leather dash pad, ultrasuede headliner, leather-wrapped billet steering wheel, and a custom gauge cluster with an 0-200 mph speedometer, 0-10,000 rpm tach, and oil pressure/coolant temperature/voltmeter/fuel level gauges. Other goodies: A/C, auto-dimming rear-view mirror (with a video screen for the rear backup camera), front/rear radar detectors and laser diffuser, plus power windows/locks.
