By: Ryan Ewing, Lucas Johnson, Donavon Oman 1960’s Muscle Cars
Ford Mustang First Generation Original Pony Car Manufactured by Ford Motor Company. From 1964 until 1973.
Chevrolet Camaro The Chevrolet Camaro was General Motors' answer to the popular Ford Mustang. It was introduced as a sporty two-door coupe. The first generation Camaros emphasized power and performance packaging with its massive 396-cubic-inch V-8 Super Sport package and the even larger Chevrolet dealer-installed 427-ci V-8 (in limited edition high- performance models).
1966 Pontiac GTO Coupe The 66 GTO saw many different features including… Grill placed parking lamps GTO nameplates, standard single centered hood scoop V-shaped front wheel opening badges and a special 389 cubic inch four barrel V-8 Dual Exhaust and high performance shock absorbers and front stabilizer bars.
1969 Dodge Charger Daytona An original NASCAR vehicle. Went 200mph, the first NASCAR to break the 200 mark. Special Body Specs… 23inch stabilizer wing Sheet metal nose cone (Designed by NASA officially for Chrysler.) Special front fenders and hood.
Chevrolet Chevelle SS The SS version of the chevelle had a 396 V8 lurking under the hood. It had a new style bumper, roof line, and dual scoops to give it more aggressive look. By the end of the 60’s the regular 396 was increased to a 402 and a limited amount of 427’s were available.
1968 AMC Rebel "Machine" convertible The Rebel name was introduced by AMC in 1957 as a special model with a big V8 engine: the Rambler Rebel, the first factory-produced lightweight muscle car, and the first hint that muscle cars would be part of the company's future. The Rebel name reappeared in 1966 on the top-of-the-line version of the Rambler Classic two-door hardtop. It featured bucket seats, special trim, and a revised roofline. For 1967, AMC's entire intermediate line took the Rebel name.
68 Ford Torino High performance version of the Torino had a 42, 7L, “cobra jet” engine. It was a sub series of the Fairline… the body styles were 2 door hard top 2 door Fast back 2 door convertible 4 door sedan 4 door station wagon They all had a V8 engine except for one option of a six cylinder 250 cu in.
1969 Chevrolet Corvette The 1969 Corvette build cycle was from September 1968 until December 1969. One of the longest build cycles for a US car. It had a regular 350 v8 motor, with 300 horse power at 5000 RPMs. It had a 3 manual transmission.
1966 Buick Skylark Gran Sport The success of the 1964 Pontiac GTO encouraged Buick to produce a muscle car of their own. General Motors placed a corporate maximum of 400 cubic inches in their intermediates, but Buick just shoehorned their existing 401 cubic inch full size car engine into their Skylark to create the Buick Skylark Gran Sport. Called the Wildcat 445, this Buick engine dated back to the 1950s and was known as the "nail head engine" due to the size of its valves. All Skylark Gran Sports, hardtop, pillared coupe, and convertible, received the convertible's beefed up frame and a special suspension. The model was an instant success and almost 16,000 were sold in 1965.
1960 Chevrolet Corvette The Chevrolet Corvette is a two- seater sports car by the Chevrolet division of General Motors. The first model was designed by Harley Earl and introduced in 1953. Myron Scott is credited for naming the car after the corvette, a small, maneuverable warship. It has been produced in six generations in coupe, convertible, t-top coupe, and targa coupe body styles. Originally built in Flint, Michigan and St. Louis, Missouri, it is currently built at a GM assembly plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
1963 Dodge Polara 500 Convertible Among the engine options on the 1963 Dodge Polara 500 was a 413 c.i.d, V8. The base engine was a 383 c.i.d. V8. For the racing crowd there was a 426 c.i.d., 425hp.Hemi V8. A three speed manual transmission was standard equipment. A three speed push button controlled Torqueflite automatic transmission was an option. A small console separated the standard front bucket seats.
