In Our Kansas City Showroom
The new Challenger and ‘Cuda were both late and expensive to develop. Insurance constraints, corporate restrictions on horsepower/weight ratios and imminent federal emissions regulations were bad news for pony cars, so the Challenger's day in the sun was a short one.
The Challenger offered eight engines, from a slant six to the thundering 455 bhp 426 cid Hemi V-8. The R/T included standard 383 cid V-8, Rallye instrument panel, Rallye suspension with sway bar, and heavy-duty drum brakes. Convenience options included power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, and AM/FM radio. Stripes offered were longitudinal or rear bumble bee style. Available hood designs included smooth, dummy intakes, cold-air intake and shaker-style. Gearshifts included column, pistol grip 4-speeds and “slap-stick" console automatics.
Performance figures of course varied depending on the equipment selection and the magazine doing the testing, but they were impressive. The 340 Six Pack did 0-60 mph in seven seconds and a quarter mile in 15.2 seconds. The R/T 440 Six Pack car managed 0-60 in 6.2 seconds and a 13.7 second-quarter mile at 105 mph, while the 426 Hemi reeled off 0-60 mph in 6.3 seconds and a quarter mile in 13.1 seconds at 107.1 mph.
