Despite the fact that the basic body shape was seared across TV and cinema screens, in efforts such as Bullitt and The Fast and the Furious franchise, Dodge Chargers have never really got the same sort of wild popularity in the classic world experienced by Ford's Mustang series.

The advantage of that is, if you biuy one, you'll have something a little different.

This 1970 model is a good example of the menacing look the second generation achieves without really trying – the ultimate 'baddies' car, perhaps.

In any case, the engineering behind them is simple and typical for the era, while parts support is excellent. That means that, if you score a reasonably rust-free car, ownership should be relatively painless.

See our backgrounder on Chargers - note that prices will have moved since it was first published.

This example is running a 318ci V8 with the ubiquitous TorqueFlite three-speed auto. The seller says it's running a mild cam and four-barrell Edelbrock carburettor.

It's with Apex American Autos in Bowral, NSW, and priced at $88,000.
