Say Hello To “Dumbo”

One of the coolest Dodge Chargers ever created belongs to Ralph Gilles. The Hellucination is a beautiful work of art powered by a Hellephant crate engine. But it’s not the only Dodge Charger with such a legendary engine under the hood. Another high-performance 1968 Dodge Charger has just appeared and is slated to go up for auction in November at Mecum Las Vegas.

1968 Dodge Charger Dumbo: Details

The 1968 Dodge Charger, known as Dumbo, features a supercharged 7.0-liter V8 engine that produces 1,000 horsepower and 950 lb-ft of torque. That engine is connected to a Stage II T56 Magnum six-speed manual, which sends all that potent power to the rear wheels, and to the passengers ,as it pulls them into their seats.

Though the listing doesn’t say how fast the car is, it doesn’t take a genius to know that it’s quick, especially when you take into account the extra equipment it has on hand. The Dumbo Dodge Charger also features Magnum Force suspension, Viking coilovers, and a Strange S60 rear end with 4.10 gearing. To ensure that there is plenty of stopping power the vehicle also sports Wilwood brakes, and just in front are sports Rushforth wheels.

Though the listing is light on additional details, the 1968 Dodge Charger sports a Destroyer Gray exterior with prominent Hellephant graphics. The car also has LED lighting units, a TTi exhaust system, and billet door handles from Ringbrothers. Meanwhile, the interior features gray seats and a unique center console with prominent Hellephant badging. In addition, there are toggle switches on the dashboard, Mopar logs on the door panels, and a three-spoke steering wheel.


There’s no auction estimate for the Dodge Charger Dumbo, but as we’ve seen cars with these engines show up in the past, it’ll sell for quite a bit. If you’re looking for a new vehicle to fill a void in your garage and you have some money to spare. Keep an eye out for when the auction takes place, as Dumbo is one of a kind.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
