How many Dodge Chargers were made in 1970?

My grandfather used to own a ‘70 Dodge Charger, but he sold it years ago. I’ve been looking into purchasing one and would like to know how many units were built. How many Dodge Chargers were made in 1970?

Great question! While production numbers for this time period aren’t exact, it’s generally estimated that somewhere around 49,800 Dodge Chargers were made in 1970.
Of those 49,800, roughly 12,000 were designed as the Base level trim, 27,765 as the 500 trim, and the remaining 10,000 as the premium R/T trim.
First appearing in 1964 as a show car, the Dodge Charger would become available for purchase during the latter half of 1965. Since then, the Charger has become one of Dodge’s most popular models, in large part thanks to its stylish design and impressive performance specs.
Available at three different trim levels—Base, 500, and R/T—the 1970 Dodge Charger made use of the two-door hardtop coupe body style and could be outfitted with either a 6-cylinder or V8 engine, the latter of which had a range of options.
The most powerful engine offered on the 1970 Dodge Charger was the 7.0L V8 Hemi engine, which was capable of producing a whopping 425 horsepower @ 5,000 rpm and 490 lb-ft of torque.
If you’re looking for a 1970 Dodge Charger with a 6-cylinder engine, you may have a hard time finding listings in your area, as only 250-300 were made for this model year. The other 49,500 were equipped with one of the various V8 engine options.
