Cloaked in a deep Burnt Orange and sporting a black vinyl roof and tail stripe, this Charger R/T really stands out from the crowd, as most of the Chargers that have survived seem to be black, green, or unfortunately given the bold orange and Confederate flag treatment made famous by the General Lee star car from The Dukes of Hazzard television show.

Rival Pontiac had experienced great success with the “flying buttress” design element that surrounded the rear window area of its GTO model, so the Chrysler design team incorporated a similar concept to the Charger. Many argue that it looks even better on the big MOPAR product.

For 1970, the Charger was fitted with a new grille treatment, which was no longer divided in the middle and was completely surrounded by a chromed loop bumper. Vacuum operated flip away headlights helped clean up the front end and gave the car a menacing grin.

Simulated rear-facing vents were affixed to the doors and proved the perfect location to embed the attractive R / T designation trim. They also helped enhance the car’s sporty look and hinted at the model’s NASCAR development. The Chargers were so successful on the track that in 1970 they won more races than any other model.
