TOP CLASSIC AMERICAN MUSCLE CARS
Added on: 13th Dec 2016
1967 DODGE CORONET R/T 426 HEMI CONVERTIBLE
A true rare gem, this unique car is believed to be one of
only two 1967 Coronet R/T Hemi four-speed cars known
to have been built in light turquoise metallic.
1973 FORD RANCHERO 500
The large and heavier design of 1973 that replaced the
previous year’s sleek model has gone down in history as
one of the classiest American muscle cars of the seventies.
1970 CHEVROLET EL CAMINO SS 454
There was a time when every guy who wanted to be cool
and respected had to drive a 1970 Chevy El Camino SS 454.
It was probably the first time in engine history that a
truck was not viewed as just a truck and a muscle car was
much more than a muscle car. The 1970 Chevrolet El
Camino SS 454 changed the way people saw trucks up to
that point and basically pioneered the combo truck/muscle
car and set the standard for its competitors to follow
or depart from.
BOSS 302 MUSTANG
Designed to compete with Chevy’s Z28 Camaro both on and
off the track, the Boss 302 revived Ford’s small-block
performance image after nearly a year-and-a-half lapse
since the 289 High Performance went away after 1967.
1969 MERCURY CYCLONE
One of the prettiest cars from the late sixties, the 1969
Mercury Cyclone remains one of the most beautiful
muscle cars of all time to this day.
1959 FORD GALAXIE
This was one of Elvis’s favourite models, as well as
Fidel Castro’s. The United States may not have been
well liked in Cuba back in the sixties for political reasons,
but the 1959 Ford Galaxie was widely admired
in the Caribbean country.
1969 CHEVROLET CORVETTE ZL-1
The all-aluminium ZL-1 engine block was only put into
three Corvettes. The car was first ordered by one of the
factory workers in Chevrolet’s St. Louis, Missouri plant
and after that only two more orders were placed.
That makes this model one of the rarest ever.
1970 PLYMOUTH HEMI SUPERBIRD
The short-lived Plymouth Superbird was a highly modified
version of the Road Runner with well-known graphics and
horn. The 1970 Plymouth Hemi Superbird, arguably the
most impressive car of the package, is still remembered
for its futuristic (for its time) design.
1978 GMC CABALLERO DIABLO TRUCK
This truck, which many people saw as the equivalent to
Chevy’s El Camino Royal Knight package, is one of the
finest trucks you will ever see. Maybe that was the reason
GMC picked the word caballero for it, which in Spanish
means “gentleman” even though its technical definition
would be “horseman” or “knight.” In other words, the
1978 GMC Caballero Diablo was all about dynamic
elegance and class.
