Top 5 Dodge Muscle Cars

The Mopar name originally debuted on a can of Chrysler Motor Parts Antifreeze. Mopar was simply the name of Chryslers OEM parts. The term has since been used among car enthusiast as a reference to vehicles produced by the Chrysler Corporation or now FCA US. The Mopar name is heavily used in the muscle car scene to describe any Chrysler or Dodge classic. If you are talking muscle cars, it is likely a Mopar performance car will be at the top of many lists. Today Spieler’s Incorporated will list our top 5 Dodge performance cars. Spieler’s Inc was established in 1968 so in our 51 years, we have seen a lot of Mopar performance come through our California, MO dealership.

1970 Dodge Charger R/T Hemi

The Charger had been a powerhouse in the muscle car scene in the late 1960s. The second generation being very desirable, originally planned for 35,000 actually sold over 96,000 in 1968. In the final year of its second generation, the 1970 Charger RT had the best styling to date with the chrome loop front bumper and full-width taillight. The 426 Hemi V8 pumped out 425 horsepower and 490 pound-feet of torque.

1970 Dodge Challenger R/T

1970 had it going on! This was the first year for the Challenger. Chrysler set out to have the hottest pony car as the Challenger set its sights on the Ford Mustangs and GM’s Camaro and Firebird. The Challenger was available in a number of trim levels as well as virtually every engine in Chryslers arsenal.

1991 Dodge Viper

Talk about a monster! With help from a Lamborghini designed V10 that made 400 horsepower the Viper ran a ¼ mile in 12.6 seconds at over 113 mph. Top speed was approximately 165 mph! The Viper is among the elite cars of its day. The Viper continued production until 2017. One of our all-time favorites!

1969 Dodge Charger Daytona

One of the most distinctive cars ever, the Daytona had a unique look. Only produced between 1969 and 1970, the huge nose and spoiler were made for aerodynamics. Just like the cars that ran in the Nascar track. A 440 Magnum or 426 Hemi set between the fenders. With low production numbers, these cars are among some of the most desired cars of all time.

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

707 horsepower! Starting back in the mid-2000s the horsepower race was on between Ford and Chevy. A few years later after the smoke cleared entered a beast. This thing was so bad only six cars on the market had more power and those cars were so rare there were only about ten in all the US and all but two costs less than a million dollars. This car is so amazing, running zero to sixty in 3.6 seconds and the quarter mile at 11.2. This is one bad car!
