The original Dodge Charger, part of the Chrysler B platform for rear-wheel drive cars popular on Dodges, Plymouths, and Chryslers in the 1960s and 1970s, enjoyed a 12-year production run beginning in 1966, split into four generations. The beginning of the third generation began with the 1971 Dodge Charger. The 1971 model features a rounder body style than previous incarnations of the Charger, along with a split grille. The Charger is a two-door sedan with a pop-up hood scoop and comes with options like a rear spoiler and hidden headlights. The Charger's powertrain includes several different engine choices, ranging from a 225-cubic inch, 3.7-liter inline 6 engine to a 440cu, 7.2-liter V8 engine. Transmission options include a three-speed automatic transmission and three- and four-speed manual transmissions. One model of the Charger available is the 1971 Dodge Charger Super Bee, a car similar to the Plymouth Road Runner. However, this was the last year of production for the Super Bee due to rising insurance rates related to the vehicle. Another variant of the Charger available from the era is the 1971 Dodge Charger R/T, which offers an upgraded suspension, tires, and brakes. Many actual vehicles are part of the large inventory on eBay, along with die-cast versions of the 1971 Dodge Charger for those who love the car, but cannot make the investment in the real thing.
