A collection of the best Dodge from the 1950s to the 1970s including the late ‘60s ‘Dodge Fever’ ad campaign. Engines include the 426 Hemi, 383, 440 and 340 V8 powered Scat Pack muscle cars. Models include Coronet, Super Bee, Monaco, Polara and R/T muscle cars.
The original 1966 Charger was a modified Coronet with a fastback roof. It was the same approach Plymouth used with the Valiant-into-a-Barracuda-trick a couple of years earlier.
The Charger was further differentiated with stylish full width tail lights, retractable headlights, and a complete set of gauges with electroluminescent lighting. For 1968 the Charger got a unique new body that remains one of the all time great automotive styling efforts. From 1971 another new body appeared that added weight and length but still looked muscular.
Engines? Take your pick from the 318 Fireball on up to 383, 440 & 426 Hemi. Models - R/T 440, luxury SE, Charger 500 with either 426 or 440, and the ultra rare, ultra wild Charger 500 Daytona with a rear spoiler that put all others to shame, Plymouth Superbird excepted…
Dodge took it’s time coming up with a direct competitor with the pony cars from Ford and Chevy - but when they did, they didn’t do it by halves - enter the Challenger. Low and w-i-d-e - the Challenger looked menacing standing still - and if it was packing 383, 426 or 440 cubes - it was ready to take on all comers. If you wanted muscle and luxury - you could order the SE with limousine style small rear window, vinyl roof and deluxe interior.
