60s Dodge/Plymouth Styling Trends

Looking at this I can see where my 2014 Challenger got it's taillight styling from.

Thanks FCA for keeping Mopar heritage alive.

the '66 - '67 Charger had wall-to-wall tail lights - this was a styling trend on the Dodge lines [E body models were under development during '66 - '67 as well]

1970 Challenger could have some influence!

I think the 1967 Plymouth Fury III and 1966-67 Dodge Charger may have been the inspiration for the 1970 Challenger's full width tail lights.

I would say the rear of the 70 challenger was the direct influence....tail lights all across with the backup lights in the middle with the Dodge lettering..just like the 08-14 Challengers...IMO..

Agreed, and I think that is where Desertdawg was going with it.

that was a common modification on 911s during the 80s - 90s to have the reflective filler between the tailights. There wasn't any lighting in those.

Nowadays, with LED technology - probably would see it done that way
