Press Release) Unlike the Charger II of 1965, with which
the Dodge stylists tested the public's response to a planned,
similarly styled production car, the 1968 Charger III styling study
was not meant for large-scale production. Dodge did not intend to
produce two-seater sports cars at the time. Instead, the Charger III
served the purpose of presenting new styling elements and technical
features, and it was "the aerodynamically most efficient car ever
designed and built by Dodge," as the official announcement put it.
An interesting feature: the complete cockpit roofing including the
sides could be folded out and back again as in an aircraft cockpit.
