Kaucher ’68 Charger

During the muscle car heyday, no one pulled off wild graphics like Chrysler, however, instead of rehashing the bumblebees and glorified cartoon characters of the ’60s, Keith Kaucher toned down the garish factor and aimed for a more understated look. “I’m not a big graphics guy, so in the rare instance that I add them, my goal is to accent a car’s body lines, not take away from them. I don’t like graphics that run diagonally and break up the body lines, like the Starsky & Hutch Torino,” he says. “The ’68 Charger already has a distinct Coke-bottle shape, so I accentuated that with dual hockey sticks, one that follows the hipline of the car, and another that follows the lower rocker line. This balances the flow of the car from front to back, and draws your eye to the ‘Hemi’ lettering that warns people of what’s under the hood. This vintage of Charger had fenders that bowed out at the wheels, and back in near the front doorjamb. This creates a void at the door, and the graphics fill in that gap.”
