1972 Dodge Charger Apparel and Accessories by Legend Lines
The door slammed hard on the muscle car market in 1972. A combination of soaring insurance rates, the reduction of compression ratios in preparation for unleaded regular gasoline, and the calculation of engine horsepower in net figures all hit performance cars hard. Reflecting the fading of the muscle car market, 1972 Dodge Chargers were cut to only a few models. The six-cylinder was the base motor and a 318 ci was offered. Any model was available with a Charger Rallye option, the performance model for the Dodge Charger for the years 1972 through 1974. The option added sport suspension, front and rear sway bars, an instrument package, louvered taillights and deluxe interior. The Rallye was equipped with the detuned 440 cubic-inch engine with four-barrel carburetors, hydraulic lifters, and five main bearings. The result was 280 horsepower for the years 1972 through 1973. In 1974 the horsepower dipped to 275. The SE kept the hidden headlights, and added a landau vinyl roof. Dodge offered nearly 30 exterior colors for the 1972 Charger, and tons of that included power steering, power disc brakes, power seats, power windows, tinted glass, air conditioning, two-tone paint, AM radio, AM/FM 8-track, limited-slip, vinyl roof and wire wheel covers. The Charger sales held up quite well, considering the offerings.. From this point on, performance figures were seldom quoted.
