The E body 1970 Dodge Challenger is a big hit this first year with 76,935 units produced. The sales dropped in succeeding years and there were a grand total of 185,437 Challenger models produced by the time the first generation was terminated in the middle of 1974. The Challenger grill is adapted from a prototype Dodge Charger turbo powered model that never reached the production stage. Under the hood of the Challenger pictured here is a 440 engine coupled to a four speed manual transmission.
