Dodge is the most pro­lific of ‘R’car man­u­fac­tur­ers with its “Road/Track” series. Since the“R/T” trim was in­tro­duced on the 1967 Coronet it has been ap­plied to nearly 20 dif­fer­ent body styles and hun­dreds of in­di­vid­ual models—in­clud­ing some of the most po­tent and prized mus­cle cars ever

1967-70 CORONET R/T

The first R/T was one of the fastest mus­cle cars you could buy. It came stan­dard with a heavy-duty per­for­mance sus­pen­sion, big­ger brakes, and a beefy rear axle—all deemed nec­es­sary to tame the 375hp 440 Mag­num which came stan­dard with the R/T pack­age. There was one op­tional en­gine—the leg­endary 426 Hemi. Just 238 cus­tomers opted for the up­grade, but those who did had the fastest, most pow­er­ful mus­cle car you could buy in 1967 (well, in a tie with its cousin the GTX!).

1968-71 CHARGER R/T

The Coronet may have launched the R/T line, but the 1968 Charger per­fected it. One of the pret­ti­est mus­cle cars of all time, the sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion Charger has be­come a dar­ling of col­lec­tors and, thanks to sev­eral high-pro­file movie and TV roles, is one of the most beloved ve­hi­cles ever. Taut curves and a sexy coke-bot­tle pro­file along with gor­geous fly­ing but­tress-style C-pil­lars com­ple­ment­the stan­dard R/T 440 and op­tional 426 Hemi.
