1968 Dodge Charger R/T 2 Door Sports Hardtop

The Fender Tag is read from left to right and from bottom to top.

To each letter of the alphabet belongs a number under it. If there is nothing stamped it doesn't have an option belonging to that group. It is the same with the first eight digits in row 3 as with the last three letters in that row.
