Win this stunning 1968 Dodge Charger valued at $269,000. Second Prize is a fully customised BMW R80 motorcycle. All funds raised go to the Young Veterans charity who seek to improve the lives of our Aussie heroes.

Since 2012, Young Veterans has set out to enrich the lives of Australian veterans by connecting them with their communities through active and social events.

Young Veterans was born from a necessity of support that wasn’t available. This support is one that inspires Veterans to think outside the box of what is possible, re-engage with civilian society and participate in positive events that challenge and rehabilitate. Young Veterans are a completely volunteer-run organisation which seeks to empower the lives of Australia’s heroes and help those suffering from anxiety, PTSD and depression to transition back to everyday life. 

All funds raised go to the Young Veterans charity who seek to improve the lives of our aussie heroes.

Prizes

1st Prize: 1968 Dodge Charger (RRP: $269,000.00)

Your chance to win a 1968 Dodge Charger. This rare, highly desirable vehicle is valued at $269,000.

The '68 Charger was iconic way before Fast & Furious came out. 

It all started with the 1968 film Bullitt which helped popularize the Charger for its notable car chase sequence alongside other muscle car icons such as the 1968 Ford Mustang GT through the streets of San Francisco, which has been regarded as one of the most influential car chase scenes in movie history. In the film, a black Dodge Charger R/T 440 is chased by Steve McQueen's Ford Mustang GT, jumping on the San Francisco slopes. After this movie, the 1968 model year Charger sales increased to 96,100, including over 17,000 Charger R/Ts.

But of course, we cannot deny the love we have for the modern iconic series, Fast & Furious, which we have based our concept on in this car going off to raffle.

The car was from the US, it's LHD. We bought it – it was a cherry red colour with white seats that were falling to bits. Looked rubbish. 

Buff and sand it back – flawless paint job.

The seats are really wide and roomy – perfect for road trips. There's heaps of space in there – it's a wide classic car. It's incredibly rare to see a car with with this kind of quality finish. Personally, we like the classic look – but if you won this, it is the perfect canvas to do something custom to it and deck it out a bit more.
