On poursuit avec le numéro 12 !


12 - Plymouth Road Runner 1968



Un 50,000$ bien investi !!  :bill
Driver Weekly a écrit:
As muscle cars gained prestige and a corresponding increase in price, Plymouth decided to launch a new base model that could complement the more upscale Plymouth GTX. The result was the unusual Plymouth Road Runner: a bare-bones muscle car festooned with iconography from “The Looney Tunes.” Plymouth had wanted a new car that was as cheap, fast, and durable as the original muscle cars. The automaker started with the B-Body Belvedere and stripped out any amenities, from the carpet to the chrome. Next they upgraded the suspension and fit two big engines under the hood.

When they needed a name, Plymoutn licensed Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner from Warner Bros. for $50,000 and developed an exclusive horn that sounded “Beep-beep!” Firing up on the starting line was the modified 383ci "Roadrunner" V8 with 335 horsepower or, for dedicated racers, the 426ci Hemi. With 425 horsepower and 490 pound-feet of torque, the Hemi put the “run” in Road Runner. Plymouth expected to sell 20,000 units but more than doubled their sales to 45,000. The cars gained a loyal following due to their pricing, durability, and raw speed—and, we’re sure, an appreciation for the cheeky cartoon character.

13 - AMC Javelin 1968

Drivers Weekly a écrit:While not as powerful as contemporary heavyweights, the AMC Javelin deserves an honorable mention as an upstart that managed to scoop victories on the track and the strip. The only pony car offered by American Motors, the Javelin represented new life for the stolid automaker under ambitious new owner Robert “Bob” Evans. AMC had been struggling to sell their thrifty and conservative vehicles in the face of faster and more attractive competitors. Evans gave designers and engineers the latitude they needed to build a new performance car based on the Rambler American that could attract younger buyers.

Sculpted by Richard “Dick” Teague, the AMC Javelin was a distinctive semi-fastback with a lean appearance, rakish windshield, and aggressive grille. (While it looked sleek the Javelin was larger than the Ford Mustang on a 109-inch wheelbase with a total length of 189.2 inches.) Street drivers could equip the 390ci AMX V8 “Go Package” rated at 315 horsepower and “Group 19” options that included dual four-barrel cross-ram air intake manifolds. While it was never as popular as the competition, the Javelin won the Trans-Am in 1971, 1972, and 1976 and it broke records on the street with acceleration from 0-60 in less than seven seconds.

L'option "Group 19" me semble une option assez rare ou très méconnue selon ma perception .

14 - Pontiac GTO The Judge


Driver Weekly a écrit:The Pontiac GTO inaugurated a new age of horsepower, and The Judge presided over its golden age. By 1969 the Plymouth GTO had slipped in sales behind the Chevelle SS396 and the Plymouth Road Runner. That year, Pontiac offered a stripped-down GTO to make it more competitive with the barebones Road Runner. Originally called the “ET” for Elapsed Time, John DeLorean changed the name to the more impressive “Judge” after the popular comedy routine “Here Comes the Judge.” Ads proclaimed that, at last, “The Judge could be bought.” In 1969, the Judge had wider tires, Hurst shifter, rear spoiler, and a blacked out grille.

Under the hood was a base 400ci V8 with 350 horsepower or the optional Ram Air III and Ram Air IV that could squeeze out twenty more horses. As if that wasn’t enough, in the last quarter of 1970 the Judge received the 455ci HO and an upgraded suspension. While ridiculously underrated at 360 horsepower, this massive mill churned out 500 pound-feet of torque, and we don’t doubt that the Judge had more grunt than advertised. There’s a reason it was also called “The Humbler.” Slathered in Carousel Red or Orbit Orange, the Judge is a quintessential 1970 muscle car: brash appearance, distinguished lineage, massive displacement, and more horsepower than common sense.

Très belle la couleur Orbit Yellow  thumright

15 - Mercury Cougar Eliminator 1969

Driver Weekly a écrit:Mercury had been clamoring for a pony car since 1965 and finally launched the Mercury Cougar (based on the Mustang) in 1967. Saddled-up for the division’s more affluent buyers, the Cat offered a more luxurious interior, more features, and a longer wheelbase for more leg room. But it was the 1969 Cougar Eliminator that offered drivers a cougar with real claws. While the division had been reluctant to face off against other muscle cars at first, the 1969 Eliminator offered high horsepower and tons of torque in bold colors.

Mercury distinguished the facelifted model from its plebeian underpinnings with a well-optioned interior, new grille, and attractive character line. Buyers could settle for the four-barrel 351 Windsor or aim higher with the Boss 302 and, at the top of the heap, aspire to the 428 Cobra Jet rated at 335 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque. Power and torque with stylistic flair and fancy seats—no wonder that Mercury was known by “the sign of the Cat.”

16 - Plymouth Cuda 1970

Driver weekly a écrit:
The Plymouth Barracuda beat the Ford Mustang to market by two weeks in 1964. First known as the Valiant Barracuda, the first generation was saddled with an outdated sense of style and ill-considered marketing despite its powerful mill. Originally marketed as a sporty compact rather than a performance car, the first model featured fastback styling and an enormous wraparound rear window that was overshadowed by the new look pioneered by the Mustang. While it was redesigned in 1967, it wasn’t until the second generation in 1970 that the Barracuda reemerged as a muscle car and a performance icon.

The new model removed the last vestiges of the compact Valiant and replaced it with the Chrysler E-Body shared with the Dodge Challenger. The Barracuda received fresh new sheetmetal and embraced raw performance with an optional 426 Hemi. While Plymouth had built a small number of professional drag racers in 1968, regular drivers could only get their hands on a “Cuda” with 425 horsepower, structural reinforcement, functional shaker scoop, and improved suspension in 1970.





Y a t-il des modèles que vous verriez dans cette liste qui ne sont pas encore sorties ??

17 - Camaro Z/28 1969

Driver Weekly a écrit:The Z/28 was a popular Special Performance Package for the Chevrolet Camaro designed to defeat the Ford Mustang at the SCCA Trans-Am. At the time the race had a 305 cubic-inch displacement limit for V8 engines. The 1968 Camaro was equipped with the 327, and the next smallest engine was the underwhelming 283. The man responsible for the Z28, Vincent W. Piggins, knew that the 283 wasn’t going to be enough to win the race. Instead, he combined both engines using the three-inch stroke crankshaft from the 283 in the 327, resulting in the 302.4ci Z/28.

Chevrolet rated the new mill at 290 horsepower, but it hit 350 on a dynamometer and an estimated 450 horsepower when it was tuned for the racetrack. In 1969, it won the Trans-Am Championship and received aggressive new sheetmetal with a raised hood scoop, wider tires, and fresh badging. Best of all the public could option these muscle cars due to the homologation requirements. No wonder the Z28 became one of the most well-known production codes in history.
