"The Charger was Dodge's entry into the current 'fastback' craze. The Charger used Coronet chassis and running gear components, but the body was completely different. The Charger's frontal area was filled with a convex grille with fine vertical bars and a round Charger crest in the center. The rear end used a single, full-width taillight with the Charger name in block letters spaced evenly across the entire length. Hidden headlights were  becoming the rage and the featured these items along with the full-width taillights. Two fine feature lines were used along the bodyside and the fastback terminated at the rear of the car. Inside, the Charger's rear bucket seats folded individually to provide a spacious luggage compartment. The instrument panel was unique to the Charger in that four large, round pods contained all the instruments and located them directly in front of the driver. The floor shift (standard or automatic) was located in a full-length console that divided the front and rear seats.

"The 1967 Charger utilized the same body introduced in 1966, with front fender mounted turn signal indicators and a few new chrome pieces added. The Chargers, mounted on the Coronet chassis, included all the features found on the Coronet 500 model plus paint stripes; map and courtesy lights; front and rear bucket seats; rear center armrests; cigar lighter; 318-cid V8 engine, tinted rear window; oil pressure gauge; tachometer and rear pillar interior lights."
