The famous Dodge Charger 1969
In 1968, the company Dodge plannedrestyling all the models of Chardzher and decided that it was time for an even greater separation of the models of the Dodge Charger and the Dodge Coronet. The style of the new car a little later will be given the name "Coca-Cola Style".
Dodge Charger 1969 retained the originalradiator grille with hidden headlights. Rotating headlights were replaced with more simple ones with a vacuum drive. The interior of the car has not undergone any changes: a vinyl rug appeared in the trunk, and the tachometer disappeared from the list of equipment and became an additional option.
To enhance the image of the Dodge Charger 1969 wasadded a package of R / T-options. It was placed only on cars with 440 Magnum engines and 426 Chemi. With a heavily loaded rear axle and wide tires, the Dodge Charge was able to lift for a while to the rear wheels with a quick start.
The radiator grille Dodge Charger 1969 haddivision in the center. Also there were new stylish rear lights from the famous designer Harvey Wynne. The SE finishing line was added, which could be ordered either together with the R / T package, or separately. In the SE-complete set of inserts made of high-quality leather and wood, as well as chrome moldings. As an additional option, you could order a hatch. It was installed in about 260 cars sold. In 1969, the Dodge Charger produced about 89,200 units.
In the same year, two rarest modifications appeared on sale - the Charger 500 and the Dodge Charger Daytona.
In 1970, this model was subjected to anotherchanges. A large chrome bumper and a solid grille were introduced. The rear lights were the same, but the versions of the Chardger 500 and the R / T Chargeer got more attractive lanterns. The seatbacks are higher, and the door panels have changed slightly.
A new version of the motor was made - 440 SixPackwith 3 two-chamber carburetors and a power of three hundred and ninety horsepower. This powerplant was one of the rarest. But, despite such a significant upgrade, sales of the Dodge Charger 1969, the characteristics of which have been improved, have declined. This was primarily due to the release of the new Dodge Challenger model and unreasonably high insurance premiums. In 1970, the Dodge Charger brought more wins in races than any other car, including the special Plymouth Superbird and the Chardzor Daytona.
Dodge Charge 500 was designed to bypass machinescompany Ford on high-speed tracks. Engineers in every way tried to improve the aerodynamic properties of the car. The Dodge Charger 1965 prototype was based on the Dodge Charger R / T with the Hemi motor.
In total, 500 Dodge Chardzher 500 vehicles were produced. And only 392 cars were bought for operation on ordinary roads. The rest was purchased by the racers.
Dodge Charger 1969 Daytona was presented on the thirteenth of April 1969. Literally a couple of hours after the show, Dodge received more than a thousand orders.
Chrysler made many attempts to improveaerodynamics Dodge Charge 500, adding different noses (up to twenty-three inches). Serial car Dodge Charger 1969 Daytona received an eighteen-inch nose fairing. The test of this model was successful, and soon the project was launched. Subsequently, the Dodge Charger 1969 Daytona received a high wing, which provided the necessary downforce and additional stability. A total of 503 copies of this model were produced.
