1966 Dodge Charger

Advertising for the 1966 Hemi Charger refereed to it as the 'Boss Hoss,' and for good reason, as the engine had taken the nation's racetracks by storm since 1964, and was now going to be placed in production street models. Based on an auto show prototype, the 1966 Charger was given a full-length console, a luminescent turbine-pod dash cluster, and fastback roofline. With potent engines, it gave Dodge its first design-specific entry into the musclecar marketplace.

The 1966 Charger rested on the Coronet chassis and shared its running gear components. Exterior design elements included hidden headlights, full-width taillights, convex grilel with vertical bars, and a Charger crest in the center. The fastback hardtop had seating for four occupants, with the rear bucket seats individually foldable to provide additional luggage compartment. The insturment panel was unique to the Charger, containing four round, large pods with instrumentation. The floor shift, either standard or automatic, was located in a full-length console located between the front and rear seats.
