The Rallye package still included the side scoops, the side stripes, two simulated hood scoops and special wheels.
Styling and trim-wise, virtually nothing was changed from ‘73 – 74.
The Rallye package still included the side scoops, the side stripes, two simulated hood scoops and special wheels. The big news was under the hood: The 340, which had been emasculated in ’72-’73, was replaced with a longer-stroke LA engine option: the 360-4. With significantly more low-end torque, this proved a much better fit with the mid’70s, scene, and performance significantly improved, as did drivability, producing one of the best-rounded “smog era” performance cars.
This would be the last year for the E-body Challenger “muscle car.” It was sad to say goodbye, but safety, emissions, and insurance headaches and taken a lot of the fun out of ponycars, and sales had dwindled. The Challenger was discontinued mid-year.
