1972 Dodge Charger.jpg

Dodge Charger (B-body). 1971–4 (prod. n/a). 2-door coupé. F/R, 225 in³ (I6 OHV), 318, 340, 360, 383, 400, 426, 440 in³ (V8 OHV). Overstyled, swoopy companion to Dodge Coronet (1971–6). Shorter wheelbase and length than predecessor. R/T for 1971 only, replaced by Rallye for 1972. Charger SE attempted to take the model line into the personal–luxury segment. New sheetmetal for 1973, with triple opera windows for SE, which began to take more of this model line’s sales as various factors killed off the muscle car. Not well built, though reasonable handling compared with other intermediates of this era.
