Dodge Charger

The Dodge Charger started out as a concept car in 1965 to give Dodge a mid-sized performance car. The Charger was based on the Coronet body, but had a fastback with a large rear window and a unique front grill.

For the first two years it was a relatively slow seller, but with the introduction of a completely new body in 1968, sales jumped from just over 15,000 to almost 100,000. Almost 90,000 Dodge Chargers were sold in 1969, and although sales slumped for a couple of years, 1973 would prove to be the Charger's best year with 108,000 manufactured.

The 426 Hemi made the Charger one of the fastest muscle cars of the sixties and seventies, and the Charger's starring roles in Bullitt and The Dukes of Hazzard made it one of the most popular cars.
