The Dodge Charger is a sports car produced in eight generations since 1966. The company’s goal was to produce a large luxury car, the demand for which was constantly increasing. The first generation had a hardtop with comfort features and was aimed more at a segment that included cars like the Ford Thunderbird rather than so-called “muscle cars.”

The first generation was produced in 1966-67 and used many components from   other cars, such as the chassis or front bodywork.  The car was powered by a 5.2-litre V8 engine, which was mated to a 3-speed manual gearbox. Larger engines up to the 7-litre V8 were available and also an automatic transmission.
