Denied by Dodge as a 1965 1/2 model, or even a 1966, it does have more than enough utilitarian features to make it a conceivable production car.
The Charger II is not way-out and the product planners cautiously say that many of the design features could well be incorporated in a not too distant Dodge model.
Dubbed the Charger II in view of last year's show car, Charger I, the new fastback is very much unlike its predecessor. Number I was purely a customized competition roadster built around an existing car.
In a quick contradiction, the Charger II can be described as a new design from the ground up, but still with enough of today's basic design to make a car that could be tooled and built in quantity with a minimum of cost and effort.
Dimensions, including wheelbase, power train and practicality give this show car a good chance of being a popular street vehicle.
The First appearance of the Charger II was at the Los Angeles Auto Show late in 1964 and a number of Dodge's sales management and engineering staff were on hand to observe the reactions and comments of the visitors to the show.
