1983 Dodge Charger
The Charger from the late ‘70s was a lame, slow car that threatened to kill the muscle car reputation of the glorious late ‘60s and early ‘70s cars. Even so, Dodge felt the name deserved another chance. In those days, the Chrysler Corporation was all about the K-platform front wheel drive cars.
So, Dodge introduced the Charger as an option on the compact and boring Dodge Omni for 1981. The appearance package was popular enough to convince Dodge to try it as a separate model for 1983. And that is how the L-Body Charger was born.
