Based on Chrysler’s redesigned B-Body platform, the handsome new 1968 Dodge Charger featured athletic body lines and a revised “flying-buttress” rear roofline to replace the fastback styling of 1966–1967. While Chrysler executives and market planners envisioned demand for perhaps 35,000 1968 Chargers, sales reached 96,100 units, necessitating additional production.
Mild stylistic revisions for 1969 and 1970 left the Charger’s striking fuselage-inspired body lines intact. From 1968, the Charger was available in high-image, performance-oriented R/T (Road and Track) form as part of Dodge’s Scat Pack model lineup. While the Charger R/T was available with the 426 Hemi and from mid-1969 the 440 Six Pack engine, the standard 440 Magnum V-8 was a thoroughly engineered package delivering a rated 375 hp and immense torque.
This 1970 Dodge Charger R/T is particularly attractive in Blue (B5) accented by a white vinyl top, R/T emblems, Rallye wheels, dual exhaust outlets with chrome tips, and white bucket seats. Desirable features include a Hurst Pistol-Grip shifter for the four-speed manual transmission, floor console, power brakes, a Tic Toc tachometer, and gauges monitoring amperage, coolant temperature, and oil pressure. The engine compartment and trunk are nicely finished and maintained, in keeping with the rest of the Charger’s presentation. This 1970 Charger R/T is a particularly attractive and highly collectible classic Mopar.
