1971 Dodge Charger

For 1971, the Dodge Charger was given completely new styling which helped further distinguish it from the Coronet series. They rested on a 115-inch wheelbase chassis and consisted of six coupes and hardtops in three series. The series included the base models, 500 series (which included the Super Bee), and the R/T Series. Pricing began at $2,700 and rose to over $3,770 for the R/T Series. Body styles included semi-fastback coupes with rear quarter window styling and seating for six. In the front was a full-width bumper and grille shell that was split by a larger vertical divider. In the back was a small trunk lip spoiler and square taillights located in the oval rear bumper.

Base model Chargers were powered by a 225 cubic-inch Slant Six cylinder engine or a 318 cubic-inch V8. They came standard with all the federally mandated safety and pollution equipment, a cigarette lighter, dual horns, color-keyed carpeting, inside ay an night mirror, wheel-well moldings, two-speed windshield wipers, an roof drip rail.

The intermediate trim level was the 500 and it came with all the equipment found on the base models plus ashtray lights, glovebox, pedal dress-up kit, sill moldings, bucket seats, deluxe wheel covers, map and courtesy lights, and '500' exterior badges.

The Charger Super Bee, in similar fashion to the Coronet Super Bee, was offered as a low-cost, high-performance package. They were given a 59 amp/hour battery, heavy-duty brakes and shock absorbers, pedal dress-up kit, heavy-duty Rallye suspension, and 440 cubic-inch Magnum V8 engine. They also were given either a four-speed manual or TorqueFlite automatic transmission.
