This ’68 Dodge Charger ‘Dumbo’ Packs a 1000hp Hellephant 7.0L Supercharged V8

Ralph Gill owns one of the coolest Dodge Chargers ever created, but he’s not the only Hellephant-powered model.

Quite the opposite, with another high-performance 1968 Dodge Charger set to be auctioned.

While not quite as impressive as Hellucination Gilles, this particular model is known as the Dumbo and features a 7.0-liter (426 cubic inch) supercharged V8 engine that produces 1,000 hp (746 kW/1,014 hp) and 950 lb-ft (1 , 287 Nm) of torque. It’s connected to a six-speed manual, Stage II T56 Magnum, which sends power to the rear wheels.

The listing doesn’t say how fast the car is, but it does have Magnum Force suspension, Viking coilovers, and a Strange S60 rear end that features 4.10 gearing. The model also has Rushforth wheels powered by Wilwood brakes.

The listing is light on the extra details, but the model has a Destroyer Gray exterior with prominent Hellephant graphics. The car is also equipped with LED lighting units, a TTi exhaust system and door handles by Ringbrothers.

Moving into the cabin are gray seats and a unique center console with prominent Helvante badges. Elsewhere, there’s a three-spoke steering wheel, toggle switches on the dashboard, and Mopar badges on the door panels.

There is no auction estimate, but the Hellephant engine originally cost $29,995 and was limited to 100 units. Engines are occasionally offered for auction, and usually sell for a little more than the original sticker price.
