The first-generation Dodge Challenger, which made its debut in 1970, was a stablemate with the Plymouth Barracuda, utilizing the E-body.

In the mid-1960s the U.S. featured a variety of popular pony cars (cheap, high-performance, stylish cars), such as the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird, and the Challenger came at the tail end of this boom.

Despite being a little late to the party, the car was welcomed with open arms by the public, thanks to its attractive styling that was characterized by a flowing silhouette and smooth lines. Designed by Carl Cameron, who had designed the 1966 Charger, the car would retain much of its visual character when the third-generation model was released 40 years later at the 2006 North American International Auto Show.

The original Challenger came in three trim levels: The 6, the Challenger V8, and Challenger R/T (Road/Track), in both hardtop and convertible versions. In addition, there was the T/A that served as a homologation model for a SCCA Trans-Am race-car.
