The 1970 Dodge Charger, a classic car with a powerfull look. The Charger changed slightly in 1970 and this would be the last year of the 2nd generation Charger and featured a large wraparound chrome bumper. The grille was no longer divided in the middle. New electric headlight doors replaced the old vacuum style. The taillights were similar to those used in 69, but 500 and R/T models came with a new more attractive taillight panel. On the R/T, new rear-facing scoops with the R/T logo were mounted on the front doors, over the door scallops. A new 440 or HEMI hood cutout made the option list for this year only.
In 1969 Dodge created the Dodge Charger Daytona for the racing circuits and as a result in 1970, a Dodge Charger Daytona made racing history when Buddy Baker became the first driver to go over 200 mph for a lap on a closed course. That speed record was held for a good few years. In the 1970 NASCAR season, it was the 1970 Charger that tallied up more wins, ten in all, more than any other car, including the 69 Dodge Charger Daytonas and Plymouth Superbirds. As a result Bobby Isaac won the Grand National Championship.
New "High Impact" colors were intoduced and given strange names for the time such as Top Banana, Panther Pink, Sublime, Burnt Orange, Go Mango and Plum Crazy.
Interior changes at 1970 Dodge Charger included new high-back bucket seats, the door panels were also revised and the map pockets were now optional instead of standard.. The all new pistol grip shifter was introduced, along with a bench seat, a first for the Charger since its debut.
A new engine option made the Charger's list for the first time, the 440 Six Pack.
