1970 Challenger 1970 Barracuda

Chrysler Corporation restyled its Barracuda again in 1970 and gave Dodge the same body to reshape into the Challenger.  And what a challenge they gave to the other ponies!  Slightly bigger overall than the rest of the herd, their available 425-horsepower Street Hemi engine was more than a match for the competition.  Chrysler also came up with some sporty versions of their compact cars such as the Dodge Dart Swinger and Demon and the Plymouth Duster, which are considered muscle cars but not true pony cars.

 

The styling trend in 1970 was to have the headlights inside a recessed grill that extended across the entire width of the front end.  The 1967 Camaro was the first to incorporate this design and the first to depart from it when it went under radical cosmetic surgery in 1970 (see the next page).
