The 1970 Challenger from car manufacturer Dodge is a sought after vehicle until today. The Dodge Challenger is the name of three different generations of American automobiles produced by Dodge. The Dodge Silver Challenger was produced from 1958 to 1959. From 1969 to 1974, the first generation Dodge Challenger pony car was built using the Chrysler E platform, sharing major components with the Plymouth Barracuda. The second generation, from 1978 to 1983, was a badge engineered Mitsubishi Galant Lambda. The third, and current generation, was introduced in early 2008 as a rival to the evolved fifth generation Ford Mustang and the fifth generation Chevrolet Camaro. The 1970 Challenger model has dual headlamps and a recessed grille design. For its rear lights, it is available in a full-width design. This Dodge model’s hood design has four designs. The standard hood of a Challenger is almost fat with peaked mold on its center.
Exterior design was done by Carl Cameron, who also did the exterior for the 1966 Dodge Charger. Cameron based the 1970 Challenger grille off an older sketch of his 1966 Charger prototype that was to have a turbine engine. The Charger never got the turbine, but the Challenger featured that car’s grille. Although the Challenger was well received by the public (with 76,935 produced for the 1970 model year), it was criticized by the press, and the pony car segment was already declining by the time the Challenger arrived. Sales fell dramatically after 1970, and though sales rose for the 1973 model year with over 27,800 cars being sold, Challenger production ceased midway through the 1974 model year. A total of 165,437 Challengers were sold over this generation’s lifespan.
The M2 1/18 GP 1970 Dodge Challenger LTD 300 PC Orange copies the design of the 1970 Dodge Challenger model. This diecast model is made out of strong diecast. It has an orange finish and comes as the same recessed grille, dual headlamps and other components of the classic Dodge.
