1.1969 Boss 429 Mustang
Awesome car. Nearly bought one but got married instead. The one I was looking at was black with mag wheels. When I popped the hood there was a motor that wouldn't quit. The salesman was a little off that day... He said this car would be someones coffin :>). Probably not a great sales strategy. I still would have bought it if I didn't get married.
This is hands down the greatest and most fierce car the world will ever see. It's style is the very characteristic other muscle cars try (AND FAIL) to imitate. Unoriginal models like the 69' Camaro and the 70' Dodge Challenger don't stand a chance against this hell-raising machine. Definitely the right choice for #1.
Not because of the power, speed or anything else... just because you'll be the luckiest person in the whole world when you ride this beauty while listening to rolling stones!
This deserves the number 1 spot. It is the all time best muscle car ever. The camaro doesn't stand a chance against this, neither does the charger or the firebird.
Great car I have a 69 SS 300hp 355 gears 4 speed muncy transmission hurst shift with gauge package matching numbers. Cortez silver black vinyl top Black hockey strips. My wife 57 stops in front of the kids in there weed eaters And smokes the tires. I don't think any of them have ever herd a 4bl and they love it.
One of the most desired muscle cars of all time. The ultimate muscle car package: Dominating appearance, jaw-dropping performance, tight cornering and a dream list of options.
The Mustang is an overrated muscle car, but on the other hand, the Camaro is not overrated. In fact, it's quite underrated and it has a lot of potential.
My dad has always wanted one. I grew up always wanting one too. No other car has the heritage of a chevy!
3.1969 Dodge Charger R/T SE
I'm surprised you guys got this list close to right. You don't see many Chargers anymore especially 1969 R/T's. The world agrees and is buying these Chargers and shipping them out of the country. I would rate the 1969 Mach 1 body style #2 and the 1969 Superbee should be on here as well. Currently I own a 73 Mustang conv. 351C 2004 Corvette conv Commemorative with 12k miles and a 69 Charger R/T. Blessed to be able to choose my rides. Anybody have a 71 Challenger conv for sale?
This car is potent and is the sole definition of pure American muscle, this car has the meanest purr and rumbles the ground when standing anywhere close to the car. This thing burns through gas with its 7.0 liter displacement, but that 'merican muscle for ya!
From Bullitt to Dukes of Hazzard, there is plenty of evidence to back up this machine as the ultimate American muscle car of all time.
The most iconic muscle car ever. When you think of muscle cars, this will surely pop to your mind... Mopar made history with this... Priceless.
4.1970 Chevelle SS 454
The first car I ever owned and for only being 17 now it's a hell of a good start. Back in the day these chevelle's could easily dominate the drag strip 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and even on holidays! When you think of a muscle car the 70 Chevelle SS is what you think of. Not to mention the only cars on this list that are actually "muscle" cars are the Charger, and this beast. The rest are really pony cars. God Bless America. We are the only country in the world with the talent to build all these cars on this list. Think to yourself, what do you want to drive. A toyota prius or a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS. It's your choice.
I see a list of 7 pony cars and 3 real muscle car... Shame... The 70 Chevelle had over 500 horsepower out of the box, a balance of straight and curved body lines, and a menacing look. Just don't put on chrome rims and you have one of the nastiest, most powerful cars to be produced with 8 cylinders. This American monster packs more power than the "worlds most powerful production V8" in the Mercedes SLS AMG. Seriously, how is this not number 1?
Great car, big engine, manly feeling. It's everything you can ask from a muscle car. I'd have one any time of the year. It's the car of my dreams. If you have this car, you don't need a house; you just need a garage to work on it, and you will know you've won the happiness lottery.
Want one any day of the year! So good looking in Fathom Blue with White stripes and a White vinyl interior with the cowl induction hood, of course! Been wanting one for a very long time now!
5.1970 Dodge Challenger
70 T/A Challenger is the best car of its age in my opinion, ponies are overrated. As for new muscle cars (if you can call them that), I saw a mustang the other day that sounded like a scooter, and the new challengers aren't too far off.
1970 Dodge Challenger is my favorite car and is prime. It should at least be in the top 5 in this list.
Also, no-one thinks of buying one of the new Dodge Challengers because everyone thinks they are expensive, but they are extremely cheap to get a v6.
My favorite cr of all time laugh out loud and also the chevelle ss
You know nothing of the 429. It will destroy the 1970 Challenger any day.
6.1970 Hemi Cuda
I'm always fighting between this and the charger. This is just the most perfect looking thing that ever came out of the U.S. I will concede that the charger's ass is just a little bit better but I like the 'cuda's grill better. In the end it's just like the ass vs. boobs argument, everyone has there own preference, but they're both big round and jiggly.
An E-body Mopar with a Hemi? Doesn't it ever make the Ford or GM fan wonder why pretty much 100% of ALL professional drag racing classes run Hemis? Why are they banned in NASCAR? It's called dominate engineering. Simple.
I have a a triple black 1973 Cuda with a 340. It turns lots of heads and many take pictures of my sexy beast. I agree with you 100 percent. Thanks for your comment.
Sexiest car of all time along with the Lamborghini Miura! It just oozes sexy!
7.1970 Oldsmobile 442
I was born in 1970, and I happen to be...a Female! And, while this may be a "Gentleman's Muscle Car", I can tell you, First hand...I was so fortunate to have this BadAss as MY car, when I was 17 years old...a Junior in high school growing up in the Midwest (Indiana to be exact! ), and! I Was the BAMF, to all of you Guys out there! They talk about cars being "chick magnets"...and, I Totally Agree. But THIS car...Olds Cutlass, as a whole, definitely is a "guy magnet", as well! GOD, I DO MISS THAT CAR...Whoa! WHAT FUN! So, This Vehicle, Hands Down~
I agree... This car is BIG MUSCLE! Body like a shark and POWERFUL engine. The Shelby is cool and so are all the other cars. For room in the vehicle, front and back seats... The Olds did a great job. ANY MUSCLE CAR you obtain is worth driving down the road with a car unlike MANY others.
I bought an olds as my first car with my own money and it was and still is fantastic. You have to drive one to understand. They were a gentleman's muscle car if that gentleman was a bamf. They had power, precision, performance while keeping that American attitude.
This car has style. Everywhere I look I see tricked out hot rods with a 90's Chevy 350 in them, or a 302 Mustang in my town. Boring. About as exciting as the Velvet seat phase hot rodders went through in the 80's.
8.1970 428 Mach 1 Mustang
How this car rates below 67 camaro is beyond me! 69-70 mustang sportsroof body, interior way more detailed than any thing from Detroit at the time, the comfort weave vinyl seats really worked, and the 327 67 camaro will not compete on any level with the 428 cobra jet! Thanks got that off my chest feel much better now.
This car gets my vote also. The 1970-1969 sportsroof mustang body is second to none, add the Mach 1 trim level, looks so bad ass add the 428 cobra jet and it was bad ass! The top pony car, 1969 camaro ss second, 1971 cuda third, and although a sports car I place the 1970 AMX fourth.
Good list someone posted here what I call pony car muscle cars. Look at my list of true muscle cars. 1st 1970 Plymouth GTX, 2nd 1970 Chevelle ss, 3rd 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge, 4th 1968 Dodge Charger, 5th 1970 Torino Cobra, 6th 1970 Oldsmobile 442, 7th 1969 Mercury Cyclone, 8th 1970 Buick GNX.
The best looking model to come out of Detroit period. Ford hit it out of the park with the 1970 428 Mach 1 Mustang. Today it is one of the most sought after cars here in America and world wide
9.1970 Buick GSX
Totally bizarre that this monster is not in the top 3.
More torque than any other car in this list, more standard features than any other car in this list.
Better qtr mile time than any other Muscle Car in this list.
Largest capacity engine in the list!
How many "bests" can one car have?
If you REALLY research all the autopress results from this era, you will discover that only 427 cobras/corvettes could outrun this car in 'non-prepped', stock status.
Held the Muscle Car torque record for 33 years! 33 years!
Took a V10 8 litre to finally put out more, the Buick was a Beast.
One of the fastest stock muscle cars of its time. Highly underrated
10.1970 Torino Cobra 429
This definitely should be first because this is a very sexy car and duh it's a Ford so it must be just totally awesome and. They have so much torque
Mid-size big block Ford. If you wanted Ford American muscle, that wasn't in the pony car market, this is it. 1970 Motor Trend Car of the Year.
I have a 71 GT Convertible 351 4v around 400hp. It rides and handles so well. Best bang for the buck.
All Steel to boot.
This car was huge but the power/torque is enormous! My 429CJ would smoke my L84 (327/375) '64 fulie Vette!...in a straight line ;-)
