Dodge Challenger TA
The Dodge Challenger TA was a specialized version of the classic pony car that was available for the 1970 model year. It was based off the Plymouth Barracuda's E-body but had two extra inches of wheelbase and distinct sheetmetal. The grille was an old sketch of a 1966 Charger prototype which never had a turbine engine. Despite its initial popularity with the 80,000 Challenger vehicles sold in 1970, the pony car segment was already waning and the model stopped being produced after 1974.
Challengers were available as both hardtop coupes or convertibles (up until 1971). The R/T (Road/Track) model was an elevated specification, with leather seats, vinyl roof, and a smaller 'formal' rear window included. In 1972, the R/T was renamed to Rallye, leaving some features including the rear axle ratios, limited-slip differential, and the shaker hood scoop to be excluded.
The 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A was a race homologation car with a tuned version of the 340 in³ (5.6 L) engine. It had a fiberglass hood with a hood scoop, 'megaphone' exhaust outlets, front and rear sway bars, and different rear wheel sizes. Additionally, the T/A was equipped with a rear ducktail spoiler and front ground effect spoilers as standard.
