1974 was the end of an era. The Dodge Charger was in its final year with its sleek, masculine lines, to be replaced the next year with a clone of the Chrysler Cordoba. In 1974, the Charger would see lower sales, yet people were still buying them. While a shadow of its former mighty self, the styling was a throwback to what used to be the coolest car on the street from Dodge save for the Challenger. Plenty of room inside, combined with attractive styling and strong engines, made the Charger, even in its waning days of youth, a sharp car to drive. In this chocolate brown finish, this particular car was set atop the hill for the 2014 River Edge Car Show and seemed to be cut off from the other Charger at the show, “Dodgezilla.” Yet, it displayed a touch of early-mid 70s class in this show, and the rims installed offered up a great stance for this old dog. Enjoy the photos.
