1967 Dodge Charger


1940 Ford Limo

In the mid 1960s, Chrysler Corporation manufactured cars under the Plymouth, Chrysler and Imperial brands. In early 1967, Chrysler introduced the Plymouth Barracuda, a sporty car with a long hood and fastback tail. It sold well but left Dodge dealers needing something like the Barracuda to sell through their dealerships. Not wanting to give them a re-branded Barracuda, Chysler looked to its existing Dodge Coronet line and modified it with a new front end, sweptback tail and new instrumentation. The Charger was unveiled at auto shows across the country in 1965 as a concept car, the attendees loved it and in 1966 the Dodge Charger rolled into dealerships.

The 1966 and 1967 Chargers had the signature "electric shaving razor" front end with headlights that rotated 180 degrees. Also the rear passenger compartment was only a two seater with the ability for the back to fold down for storage. Base powerplant was the proven 318 cubic inch engine: a 361, 383 and 427 Hemi engine option was available.
