Some of the best and rarest!
1966 Ford AC Cobra, 427 engine. In 1963, Cobra earned their first-ever race victory against a field made up of Corvettes, Jaguars, Porsches and Maseratis. Jack Sears and Peter Bolton reportedly hit about 186 mph in tests on England's M1 motorway before the 1964 24 Hours of Le Mans race. Ford and Shelby ceased importing the cars from England in 1967.
1967 L88 Corvette, The L-88 was a factory racing option package that could be ordered from Chevrolet
in a brand new Corvette. The L-88 option was only available for three brief model years
from 1967 through 1969. Although only 216 L-88 Corvettes
rolled off the St. Louis Corvette Plant assembly line during these three model years, the L-88
created an image of power and prestige that would live on with the Corvette for decades.
The 1967 Shelby GT 500, 428 Cobra-Jet engine. The 1967 Shelby GT 500, got a reworked 428-cid "Police Interceptor." The 428 was otherwise reserved for bigger Fords, where it made 345 bhp. Shelby added the cast-aluminum medium-rise intake manifold from Ford's 427, twin 600-cfm Holley four-barrel carburetors, and other tweaks for a conservative rating of 355 bhp. During manufacture or through dealers, a handful of 1967 Shelby GT 500s were equipped with Ford's near race-ready 427-cid V-8.
1969 ZL1 Camaro, 427 big block. Only one Camaro combines it all: The 1969 Chevrolet COPO Camaro ZL1. It surpassed the powerful 427 Yenko and even the mighty L88 Corvette, to where few production muscle cars dared to go. Created by Fred Gibb, it's a true racecar at heart. And with only 69 produced, it the rarest Camaro ever.
1970 Buick GSX stage 1 car. There were 678 GSX cars built in 1970 and available in only Saturn Yellow and Apollo White. Of this number, 491 were yellow and 187 were white, according to the GSX Registry. Of the 678 cars, 199 had four-speed manual transmissions and 479 were optional automatics. And 278 had standard 455 engines, while the other 400 were Stage 1 powered. In 1970, the Buick 455 produced 510-lb.ft. of torque at 2,800 rpm and 350hp at 4,600 rpm. The more powerful Stage 1 produced the same torque rating, but had 10 more horsepower in 1970.
1970 Hemi Charger, the Dodge Charger 426 Hemi. Dodge introduced the regular production 1970 Charger with only minor changes from the previous year. Most notable was the front loop bumper, which gave the Charger a more formal look. The 1970 Charger could also be ordered with some new wild exterior colors. These included Plum Crazy, Sublime, Panther Pink, Top Banana, and Hemi Orange. Midyear options included a rear spoiler, and a new hood performance treatment that had 440 or Hemi spelled out in block letters with silver reflective tape on either side, and dual color-keyed mirrors.
1970 GTO Judge, 455 CID engine. A new option was Pontiac's 455 HO engine (different from the round-port offerings of the 1971-72 cars), available now that GM had rescinded its earlier ban on intermediates with engines larger than 400. The 455, a long-stroke engine also available in the full-size Pontiac line as well as the Grand Prix, was dubiously rated by Pontiac as only moderately stronger than the base 350 HP 400 cu. in. and less powerful than the 366 hp (273 kW) Ram Air III.
1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS 6, 454 CID 450 HP. At the pinnacle of the American muscle car era, Chevrolet dropped the A-bomb on the competition: 454 cubic-inches, 450-horspower, 500 lb-ft of torque. It was the LS6 version of the 1970 Chevelle SS454.
