In 1972 Dodge redesigned the Challenger. It was basically the same body but with a different look. The grille and taillights were the most noticeable of all the changes. The taillights were now separated from one another. The headlights were also separated from one another. The Challenger could only be ordered with two body styles, Dodge did away with the convertible. The Challenger Rallye was the high-performance option and came with a 318-cid V-8 standard. It had side scoops behind the front wheels and strobe-type stripes that ran the full length of the car.
Reminisce from the 71 Challenger still lingered when Dodge decided to go back to the chrome bumpers, instead of using color bumpers. This year was the death of the big blocks. Monster power died in 72.
