Are These Cars The Embodiment Of The 1960s Classic Muscle Car Culture?

The 1960s was a very innovative time for classic muscle cars. From the space race to the evolution of the automobile, tech enthusiasm boomed, so automotive designers stepped up their game. Here’s a taste of the most iconic, quintessential cars of the 1960s.

 

Ford Mustang

 

 

The 1964 Mustang started a revolution. It’s easily the most iconic of the ’60s American classic muscle cars. Although lacking in speed, the V8 option offered some versatility, which was then complemented by later body styles such as the fastback.

 

Chevrolet Camaro

 

 

An answer to the Mustang, this car offered a variety of engine options and body designs. Although it launched late and could not beat the Mustang‘s records for some time, it was a sure contender.

 

Chevrolet Corvette

 

 

The C3 stands out for its relation to NASA and Apollo astronauts, however it’s the C2 that’s regarded as the iconic ’60s model. The evolution of this machine to a real sports car left a mark on the industry.

 

Plymouth Barracuda

 

 

This is one of the most expensive classic muscle cars currently in auctions. Although the first version was humble, the ’67 release featured more masculine looks, powerful engines, and distinctive wrap-around glass.

 

Pontiac GTO

 

 

Crippled by several bans, the designers of this machine were determined to add hype to their product line. Through a loophole that listed GTO as an option, they gained 100 extra hp in the class. It became an instant hit that launched the muscle cars wars.

How NOT to load a classic car with a 3 on the tree. Recent car hauler experience caught on camera. ...

Comment on Facebook

Why didn't the guy drive it up there for him since the hauler could NOT and save a clutch and battery

Come on people send somebody that can drive a stick hard to watch

I would have but then that puts the liability on me I could’ve drove it up there in 30 seconds. We didn’t hire the car hauler. And I stated several times even to the dispatcher send me someone that can drive a clutch three on the tree. And of course they didn’t

If you know of a good car hauler or car haulers that aren’t brokers please let me know

Jesus christ. I can't watch it any more. That dipity doo dah needs to get out and let them drive it up

Must have been a new clutch as it still drives good

I’ll be moving to Kankakee in a month or so, shoot me your info please?

Wow not good! Lol

Get in it and drive it for him dam it !

first gear would work!!!!!!!

Grown ass man couldn't drive a manual

Ugh, painful to watch 🥺

Thomas Photsios

Nancy Hillewaere Crittenden 😫

Way to watch him toast the clutch?????

I took a video of this one because the last one which was a 61 Catalina 389 three on the tree the idiot driver wouldn’t take it out of third gear. I wasn’t there to stop him. And of course he burned up the clutch

Back and down . IDIOT.!!!!

This speedometer assembly belongs to a 1961 Chevy coupe or sedan, Maybe a Biscayne or Impala, be-lair🚦

Looks like 60 Pontiac. Seem to recall my uncles Pontiac had that.

Early 60,s ford,to small for galaxy, more like comet or falcon

Looks like a early/ mid 60's Ford dash,for a falcon or a Fairlane

60’s Ford Mustang

Plymouth..50s.

Early 60’s molars? DeSotos were wider, Dodge maybe

Cadillac Plymouth ford mustang

50's Mopar...not sure of the make

Ford fairlane 64 maybe

60’s Corvair Monza

'63 Pontiac tempest
