1966 Dodge Charger Coupe Long Sleeve T-Shirt
The Dodge Charger was produced from 1966 through 1978, 1983 through 1987, and again in 2006. Since its inception, and for most of the time, the impressive performance and stylish bodies made the Charger an instant success. The first, second and third generation were mid-size two-door performance car while the other generations went to subcompact and later to four-door sedans. Back in the 60s, Dodge dealers were impatiently pressuring the automaker for a response to the Ford Mustang. Instead of focusing its attention on a Mustang-fighting pony car, Dodge looked to counter the AMC Marlin and the Ford Thunderbird with a sleek fastback two-door hardtop. A Charger II show car was displayed at auto shows throughout 1965, and the production Charger made its public debut on January 1, 1966, in a television commercial aired during the Rose Bowl. Viewers were introduced to the “Leader of the Dodge Rebellion,” and the 1966 Charger immediately garnered both criticism and praise from the public and reviewers alike. Some panned its fastback styling for being too similar to the AMC Marlin, while others questioned the value of its $3,122 starting price, which was over $400 more than the Marlin. Over time the Charger became a to the high of success and made it an absolute Legend.
The Dodge Charger was introduced during the 1966 model year. It was based on the Dodge Coronet platform, but with a fastback roofline. The headlights were retractable which resulted in a sportier appearance for the vehicle. The interior had four bucket seats with the rear seats able to be folded down that provided ample space for cargo. Under the hood was a 318 cubic-inch eight-cylinder engine, or optional was the 361 and 426 cubic-inch Hemi, available in various configurations. The 426 Hemi produced 425 horsepower and would set the buyer back $1000, a considerable cost considering the base price was $3122. Only 468 of the Hemi option were purchased. In 1966, buyers took home 37,344 Dodge Chargers, but sales fell off to 15,788 units for 1967 as buyers turned to smaller cars like the Mustang and the newly introduced Chevrolet Camaro. In 1967 Dodge added the 440 cubic-inch Magnum to the Charger model line. With 375 horsepower, it was a cheaper option than the Hemi and easy to tune.
