1970 Dodge Charger Base Hardtop 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 Charger was redesigned in 1970 and became available in new colors. The SE version added leather seats and an electric sliding sunroof. The 500 was no longer a high-performance model, instead it became an upgraded Charger with bucket seats, wheel-opening moldings, and 500 medallions in the front grille and rear taillight recess. Gone also was the winged Daytona, with the R/T once again the top Charger. Dodge introduced the 440 Six Pack which featured three Holley two-barrel carburetors and produced 390 horsepower. In total, there were just over 10,300 Chargers sold in 1970. This year saw also a new wrap-around chrome front bumper framing the grille. New exterior colors included Plum Crazy. Sublime, Panther Pink, Top Banana, and Hemi Orange. Midyear options included dual color-keyed mirrors and a rear spoiler. A new hood cutout made the option list for this year only, with "440" or "Hemi" spelled out in block letters with reflective silver tape. On the R/T, new rear-facing scoops with the R/T logo were mounted on the front doors.
