Chrysler redesigned the Charger's body style in 1971 as sales had slowed down significantly in 1970 compared to Charger sales in 1969. However, the 1971 redesign did not slow down the sales of muscle cars as shown above. Muscle cars and Hemi sales figures were down in 1971 due to high insurance costs, high gas prices and a newly introduced government gas mileage regulation for car manufactures (the entire fleet had to meet a miles/gallon target).
6
But total sales of all 1971 Charger models (74,781) out performed total sales of all 1970 Charger models (60,204). The Super Bee was not a Charger model in 1970 but its 1970 total sales are included in the 60,204 to make the comparison even.
