Early 70's Models cars weren't as popular as late 60's models. Chevelles, Novas, Fairlanes, C10's, Chargers, Challengers, and many more. Not much has changed maybe a couple gearing changes but still equipped with big blocks, small blocks, and 6 cylinders. More automatic transmissions for a better drive as a family vehicle. Still carburated but dodge had their big block hemi 426 with duel 4 barrel carbs. In fast and Furious, throughout all episodes that Vin Diesel is in, he has a 71 charger. With a 1050 blower and a 426 it had the possibility of pushing around 550hp without the nitrous injection that also added horsepower when engaged. Trucks had bench seats, and cars had buckets most commonly. With 4 speed being on the floor which is what dodge ran in a lot of their cars it would have been hard to have a bench seat and still be able to shift without leaning into the dash.
