Take a trip back in time with us as we reveal our top 5 cult classic muscle cars from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.
1958 Plymouth Fury
This was Plymouth’s top performing speedster that came with a high price tag, but it was made famous by its starring role in Stephen King’s ‘Christine’. Whilst it may seem an odd way to be introduced to a model, you can’t deny it made an impact.
There were plenty of speedy add-ons to choose from and an automatic equipped Fury with the 305-hp Golden Commando once did 0-60 in 7.7 seconds.
1964 Pontiac GTO
A legend in the muscle car world, this was extremely popular in its day and has gone on to be a success story for GM. It may have been a reluctant build, but once it was released into the world, buyers loved it!
It flew off the metaphorical shelves, with customer who went for a top-specification getting uprated suspension and wider wheels.
1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z28
This car is proof that speed isn’t everything, as the Z28 is still a dream car for many of us even though it wasn’t one of the fastest around by a long shot.
It had single-season styling, handled impeccably and constantly reminded the driver that they were behind the wheel of a road-racer first and foremost.
1969 Pontiac Firebird 400 Coupe
In a land without the Camaro, the Firebird would be its replacement, and a glamorous one at that! Despite having a lot in common, this model retained its own individual character as well as having Pontiac’s own engine under the hood.
Part of the first generation, this muscle car first went on sale as both a coupe and convertible.
1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302
Performance is key with the Boss 302 and it enjoyed success on the racing circuit alongside popularity with customers. A high quality, comfortable and controlled machine, Ford got the balance just right here.
There was a reduced-weight chassis and a powerful 290 horsepower modified 302-cubic inch V-8 that gave it the power it needed to win the Manufacturer’s Championship for Ford in 1970.
