1973 Dodge Challenger History The Dodge Challenger is the name of three different generations of automobiles marketed by the Dodge division of Chrysler. The Dodge Silver Challenger was produced in 1959. From 1970 to 1974, the first generation Dodge Challenger pony car was built using the Chrysler E platform, sharing major components with the Plymouth Barracuda. Both the Challenger and Barracuda were available in a staggering number of trim and option levels and were intended to compete against cars like the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang, and to do it while offering virtually every engine in Chrysler''s inventory. For the 1973 models, the mandatory 5 mph bumpers were added, while the 225 cu in six-cylinder engine was dropped, leaving just the two V-8s, otherwise all option lists were carry-overs from 1972.
