First seen as a show car in 1964, the Dodge Charger's production run began with the 1966 model year and has been manufactured on and off for the last fifty years. It immediately became a darling of both gearheads and Hollywood, spawning countless car chase films featuring the legendary muscle car. The 1971 release was the first in the nameplate's third generation, featuring a split grille and a ducktail spoiler.
