1970 Dodge Challenger RT.jpg

Dodge Challenger (E-body). 1970–4 (prod. 165,437). 2-door coupé. F/R, 198, 225 in³ (6 cyl. OHV), 318, 340, 360, 383, 426, 440 in³ (V8 OHV). Not quite a twin to the revamped 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, but closely related. Weighty but not more so than contemporary Ford Mustang, and looked more balanced as a pony car. Helped by powerful engines, including the last of the big blocks (the 440 in³ RB) before the Clean Air Act kicked in for 1972 model year (383, 426, 440 in³ deleted). At the time, usually owned by drivers who pushed them hard; survivors will generally be in the hands of collectors. Styled by Carl Cameron, who designed the 1966 Dodge Charger, with more restraint than the 1971 Charger.

Manufacturing locations: Hamtramck, Michigan, USA; Los Angeles, California, USA

Marque: Dodge | Model: Dodge Challenger
