2015 Dodge Challenger RT Hemi
The Challenger was Dodge's answer to the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. Introduced in the fall of 1969 for the 1970 model year, it was one of two Chrysler E-body cars, the other being the slightly smaller Plymouth Barracuda. Both the Challenger and Barracuda were available in a staggering number of trim and option levels and were intended to compete against the “pony cars” from the other guys, and to do it while offering virtually every engine in Chrysler's inventory.
The Challenger was produced from 1970 to 1983. The passage of time has created legends and highlighted the unique personalities of both the Challenger and the Barracuda. With a low total production, as well as low survivability over the years, any Challenger is worth a substantial amount of money.
Perhaps it was this renaissance that prompted Chrysler Corporation executives to re-introduce the Challenger for the 2008 model year. The remake looks very much like the original Challenger, albeit a little bit wider and a little bit taller. The new Challenger was so successful that Chrysler copied the famous 1970’s interior dash layout during the model’s refreshening. More retro than ever. Like the original Challenger, the new Challenger is offered in a myriad of configurations and engine choices. This particular model was purchased new in 2015 by its owner and shipped to the museum. It has the very retro Sub Lime green color and is powered by the 392 V8 HEMI. The only variant above it is the ferocious Hellcat, which is a supercharged HEMI engine that delivers 707 hp. We are glad to have this great retro car living in the museum.
