Little Known Facts about American Muscle Cars: You Will Love Number 3

At the peak of the classic muscle car era, we witnessed the rarest and wildest rides packing incredible power and sleek bodies.  Beyond the obvious ones, here are some surprising facts that you will love.

 

1968 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

 

 

The first releases of the mustang were pure gold. They were not only stylish but also lightweight. Later models were more powerful in terms of engine, but still maintained good weight ratio. But I bet you didn’t know that the '67 Shelby had Mercury Cougar tail lamps carried over from the '66 Thunderbird!

 

1984 Chevy Corvette

 

 

The corvette had a very impressive and successful run from 1968 to 1982. GM decided to move on to the next generation, they skipped a whole year of production - at least, the '83 corvette was never made available to the public. The last surviving '83 model is in the national corvette museum.

 

1969 Dodge Charger Daytona

 

What's striking about the appearance here is the stretching rear wing, which has proven aerodynamic properties. But did it have to be that long? No. It was exaggerated so that the lid of the trunk could open comfortably.

 

1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am

 

 

The Pontiac's T-top roof was the closest buyers got to a convertible. However, the roof leaked and Pontiac had to develop a new roof within the model year using GM's fisher body division. The difference is that the remake was slightly larger.

  1. The peak of The Muscle car era was 1970 when cars had 370-450HP, not 180-220HP like this T/A! Loved them all though!

  2. I thing ’69 L88 most power ever from a factory engine even if it was rated 430
