1966 Dodge Charger
The Dodge Charger was introduced in January 1966. The only body style was the fastback version that came with four bucket seats which had rear seats that individually folded flat. Hidden headlights were standard.
Based on the Coronet, the Charger had a different front grill, and the distinctive fastback roof line.
In the interior, a full length console that extended from the dash to the rear of the car was used for 1966 only.
The standard engine was the 318 cubic inch 2-barrel (230 horsepower and 340 ft-lbs of torque), while the 361 cid 2-barrel (265 hp and 380 ft-lbs), the 383 cid 4-barrel (325 hp and 425 ft-lbs), and the 426 Hemi (425 hp and 490 ft-lbs of torque) were optional.
1966 Charger Key Differences
The only external difference between the 1966 and 1967 Dodge Chargers is that 1967s have turn signal indicator lights mounted on the leading edge of the front fenders. 1966 Chargers have a chrome strip running along the edge of the front fender, but it has no light in its front section.
In the interior, 1966 Chargers have a console that runs from the dash to the rear seats, while 1967 Chargers have a console that runs only between the front seats.
1966 and 1967 Chargers share the same bodies and are almost identical, other than the turn signal indicators located on the front fenders in the 1967 Charger, and the full-length console on 1966 Chargers.
