The restyled, second-generation Dodge Charger arrived in 1968. Dodge designers and engineers were tasked to create and develop a performance coupe that looked ready to race on Daytona’s high banks, but still be driven on the streets.
Charger was the Dodge brand’s first production fastback, high-speed street racer. The first generation Dodge Charger was introduced on Jan. 1, 1966. Dodge Charger was built on Dodge Coronet’s chassis but had its own body.
