Kooks Headers and Exhaust Introduces Reverence; a 1969 Dodge Charger with the Heart of a Hellcat
STATESVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA –Project Reverence combines the intense power and modern luxury of the Dodge Hellcat with arguably the most iconic muscle car body of all time, the 1969 Dodge Charger.
Built by Cleveland Power and Performance (CPP) in Cleveland, Ohio, the Charger sits on a complete Hellcat chassis and drivetrain, featuring Kooks Headers and Exhaust’s Hellcat 2-inch stainless-steel headers (PN# 31032600) and full 3-inch stainless-steel exhaust system (PN# 31534200). Thanks to the exhaust and tune, the supercharged Hemi makes 750 hp to the tires.
The Charger body was heavily modified to match the wheelbase of the Hellcat. CPP recessed the black-chrome bumpers, hand fabricated the front splitter, and created new steel doors which exaggerate features to enhance the already stellar body design. The body features bigger wheel wells, but no flare or tubbing.
CPP custom mixed the PPG paint, nicknaming it Strangler Green. It sits on Pirelli P Zero tires measuring 255/50R20 in the front and 315/35R20 in the rear. The Hellcat rear axle features a Scat Pack 3:09 gearing, for more oomph off the line. The front headlights are Dapper Headlights HID lights with LED sweeping and sequential taillights.

“I believe the 1969 Dodge Charger is the most iconic muscle car, while the Hellcat reigns at the top of the food change in the resurgence of the modern muscle shootout,” said owner Rick Fragnoli. “Reverencewill be a nostalgic piece of Americana merged with a modern marvel.”
