Model Overview

History of the 1966-1967 Dodge Charger

The Dodge boys created the Charger in 1966 by grafting a sleek fastback roofline onto their mid-sized B-body Coronet. Hideaway headlights complemented the sporty shape up front, and the image was enhanced further inside by four bucket seats separated by a full-length center console. The two rear buckets folded down to maximize storage space beneath the original Charger’s sloping roof. A 318-cid V-8, backed up by a three-speed manual transmission, was standard under the hood. Chrysler’s Torqueflite automatic was optional, as were three V-8s: Dodge’s 265-horse 361, 325-horse 383 four-barrel, and a 425-horse 426 Hemi.

Behind these three engines went either a four-speed stick or the tough Torqueflite. Optional engines were shuffled in 1967 as the 361 V-8 was traded in for a two-barrel 383 and Dodge’s new 375-horse 440 Magnum joined the awesome Hemi at the top of the heap. Only 660 440-equipped Chargers were built in 1967. The Hemi count was a mere 117 in 1967, 468 in 1966.
