1967 Dodge Charger

1967 Charger

Description

Introduced in 1966, the Charger remained mostly unchanged for its second year in production.

The easiest way to identify a 1967 Dodge Charger is that they had turn signal indicators mounted on the top edge of the front fenders. The 1966 Chargers had only a chrome strip along the top of the fenders with no turn signal indicator.

In the interior, the full length console between the seats was replaced by a shorter one that was only for the front passengers.

The "LA" 318 cubic inch 2-barrel was now standard but it was still rated at 230 horsepower and 340 ft-lbs of torque. A new 440 cubic inch "Magnum" 4-barrel engine was introduced, rated at 375 horsepower and 480 ft-lbs of torque. A 383 cu in 2-barrel (270 hp and 390 ft-lbs), a 383 4-barrel (325 hp and 425 ft-lbs), and the 426 Hemi (425 hp and 490 ft-lbs) were also optional.

1967 Charger Key Differences

Turn signal indicator lights on the top edge of the front fenders is the only external way to identify a '67 Dodge Charger. 1966 Chargers had a chrome strip on the top edge of the front fender, but it did not have a light in it.

Inside, 1967 Chargers have a short console that runs just between the front seats. 1966 Chargers have a long console that runs from the dash to the back of the rear seats.

Similar Years

1966 and 1967 Chargers are virtually identical. Turn signal indicators on the top of the front fenders signify a 1967 Charger. A short console between the front seats only is also a way to identify a '67 Charger.
