Top 5 Muscle Cars

karla-cuda 1970 Plymouth Hemi ‘Cuda
A mix of powerful V-6s and V-8s propelled the 1970 Plymouth Barracuda through the streets. The big dog of the bunch, however, was armed with the dual-carburetor, 426 inch Hemi that whipped up 425 horsepower. The Hemi ‘Cuda could certainly go toe to toe with the era’s top-tier muscle cars, as the carmaker gave its muscle cars a suspension tailored to heavy-metal acceleration.
The Barracuda was based on the Valiant, but with a 1970 redesign, the Barracuda finally shifted away from the Valiant’s design. Plymouth produced a limited number of the Hemi ‘Cudas, which are highly prized today.

karla-zl11969 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is named for the legendary 1969 Camaro ZL1. With fewer than 70 ever built, the ’69 ZL1 not only had the most powerful Chevrolet engine offered to the public for decades, but it’s the rarest production car Chevrolet ever made creating a steep price. Even today, when seen at an auction, they certainly appeal to those with deep pockets. The Zl1, based on Chevrolet’s iconic 427 V-8 engine; the ZL power plant had an aluminum block. Although it was officially rated at the regular 427′s 430 horsepower, most independent testers pegged the output as being much higher.

karla-boss429 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429
Ford’s 1969 Boss 429 had a solid 429 inch engine, putting out about 375 horsepower. It had a nice stock engine, but it didn’t match up to those around its class. What separates it from those other cars, is that is is almost completely hand built. This new engine they were using wouldn’t fit in the normal mustard bodies, so they had to improvise and contact Kar Kraft. Looking very similar, only receiving a spoiler and hood scoop, they Boss 429 looks just like its fellow mustangs. Fewer than 1,400 of these cars were built, making it another rare find.

karla-gto1967 Pontiac GTO
Skirting a General Motors ban against putting big engines — any engine larger than 330 cubic inches — into small cars, Pontiac sneaked a 389-cubic-inch V-8 into its Tempest as an option called the GTO in 1964. Response was so huge that the car won over GM execs, paving the way for a stable of Chevrolet, Oldsmobile, Buick and Pontiac muscle cars. Inside this beast was a 400-cubic-inch V-8, delivering 360 horsepower.

karla-challegner1970 Dodge Challenger
The 1970 Dodge challenger had the ability to contain a 440 inch V-8 putting out 390 Horsepower. The challenger was revived in 2008 when Dodge wanted to take their new pony car back to the good ole’ days. Following the same look, with its aggressive lines and stance, the car today turns heads as much as it used to in the 70s.
