In 1978 Dodge Challenger returned to the Dodge lineup. The second generation Dodge Challenger two-door coupe was actually an early Mitsubishi Galant Lambda coupe, which was known overseas as the Mitsubishi Sapporo/Scorpion.
The Dodge Challenger made its debut in the fall of 1969 as a 1970 model. While it shared Chrysler’s E-body short-deck, long-hood platform with the third-generation Plymouth Barracuda, Dodge Challenger’s wheelbase was 2 inches longer, creating more interior space. The Dodge Challenger was originally offered as a two-door hardtop or convertible.
