1970 Dodge Challenger Muscle Car - Panther Pink Video 1 - La Jolla Ca
Checl out this mint 1970 Dodge Challenger shot in La Jolla California and
owned by local resident Lance Pelky. The Challenger is described in a book
about 1960s American cars as Dodges "answer to the Mustang and Camaro." was one of two Chrysler
E-body cars, the other being the slightly smaller Plymouth Barracuda. "Both
the Challenger and Barracuda were available in a staggering number of trim
and option levels" and were intended "to compete against cars like the
Chevrolet Camaro and
Ford Mustang, and to do it
while offering virtually every engine in Chrysler's inventory." However
they were "a rather late response to the ponycar wave the Ford Mustang had started." The author of a
book about "Hemi"-powered muscle cars says that the Challenger was
conceived in the late 1960s as Dodges equivalent of the Plymouth Barracuda,
and that the Barracuda was designed to compete against the Mustang and Camaro. He adds that Chrysler
intended the new Dodge as "the most potent ponycar ever," and positioned it
"to compete against the Mercury Cougar and Pontiac Firebird." Similarly,
the author of a book about the Chrysler pony-cars notes that "[t]he
Barracuda was intended to compete in the marketplace with the Mustang and Camaro/Firebird, while the Dodge
was to be positioned against the Cougar" and other more luxury-type
The Challenger's longer wheelbase, larger dimensions and more luxurious
interior were prompted by the launch of the 1967 Mercury Cougar, likewise a
bigger, more luxurious and more expensive pony car aimed at affluent young
American buyers. The wheelbase, at 110 inches (2,794 mm), was two inches
longer than the Barracuda, and the Dodge differed substantially from the
Plymouth in its outer sheetmetal, much as the Cougar differed from the
shorter-wheelbase Ford Mustang.
Exterior design was done by Carl Cameron, who also did the exterior for the
1966 Dodge Charger. Cameron based the 1970 Challenger grille off an older
sketch of his 1966 Charger prototype that was to have a turbine engine. The
Charger never got the turbine, but the Challenger got that car's grille.
Although the Challenger was well-received by the public (with 76,935
produced for the 1970 model year), it was criticized by the press, and the
pony car segment was already declining by the time the Challenger arrived.
Sales fell dramatically after 1970, and Challenger production ceased midway
through the 1974 model year. About 165,500 Challengers were sold over this
