Dodge released the first generation charger in 1966 as a fastback version of the medium-sized Coronet. 

The unique styling of the charger included a long roofline that stretched from the windshield to the taillights. This two-door, 

four-seater wasn't the sales success Dodge wanted, but it was ready for the model to come. 

The second generation charger was introduced in 1968 with an angled styling from the embedded grille to the buttress roof pillars.

.Buyers noted, Dodge sold about 100,000 chargers in 1968 and over 80,000 chargers in 1969. 

 This generation also saw the advent of the legendary Charger Daytona,

which became famous for its huge rear wing, 

aerodynamic nose cones, and NASCAR reliability.
