Best Muscle Cars


The Top Ten

1 1969 Boss 429 Mustang

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.

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 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.

It's a mustang and it already has a big motor in it but once they dropped the 429 in it, it changed everything.

2 1969 Camaro

The 1969 Camaro is the best looking muscle car of all time.

My dad has always wanted one. I grew up always wanting one too. No other car has the heritage of a chevy!

Because their body style is revolutionary for the year and with the 427 they would kick a dodge charger any day of the week

The car that brought transformer to life.

3 1969 Dodge Charger R/T SE

This car is beast, my use to have one and it was so bad butt and they are kinda cheap

This is where its at. It has power and beauty. My dream car is the 1970 Dodge Charger, black with black interior.

There is only one word that can describe this car... BEAST, can't get much better than this.

Dodge is the best cars in the world

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.

I had a blue w/black strip 72 ss.. I loved that car.. Young an dumb, sold it an got a fiat X19. A cool care in it self. But not a big block chevell that I built ground up.. Live an learn.

5 1967 RS SS Camaro

Not exactly very streamlined or anything like a Lamborghini Gallardo but in a way it looks super cool, the front of it just says "I am the boss of all muscle cars"


67 was the birth of the Camaro.Has to be #1 of all time.

Birth of the almighty camaro was in 67, it's obviously the best

6 1970 Hemi Cuda

Nothing is wrong on this car. from the body lines to the engine the 'cuda has it all

Sexiest car of all time along with the Lamborghini Miura! It just oozes sexy!

I love the Hemi Cuda. It's a monster - mikeyjay

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.

7 1970 Dodge Challenger

70 ta Challenger is the best car of it's 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.

It's the best looking muscle car especially the engine allowing the best hemi engines to power this amazing car

Stupid 429 mustang above piece of crap, the challenger is the king with 440 or hemi will knock out stupid 429

Dodge challenger should be like number 2

8 1970 Olds 442

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.

Pure Power! Had the best Ram Air system ever built. I had the convertible pace car. I owned everybody in S. Fla except a 440 magnum and a cuda hemi w/nos.

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.

9 1967 L88 Corvette 427

Anyone who doesn't vote this amazing American beauty into at least the top 3 is insane! The 67 427 was the greatest car ever built as far as I'm concerned and it deserves a better ranking! It's way nicer then any mustang.

This should be #1, the look, the feel, the drive, the power screams muscle car.

The 1967 L71 Corvette 427/435 Tri-Pwr car is the "holy grail" car for the 60's...easily in the top 3 of all time and perhaps #1-

12 1970 428 Mach 1 Mustang

Best looking model year mach 1. lot of torque and horse power with the 428 cobra jet, yet very dependable and durable for street driving

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.

I choose the are code, make mine medium red with black interior! Also got to have rear window louvers, front and rear spoilers, fold down rear seat.

428 Cobra Jet & Super Cobra Jets... Torque Monsters... enough said!

13 1969 Road Runner

She looks really simple, but she has a unique feeling, she sounds very good and the story of this car is very funny

My '68 GTX 440 was better than 383 roadrunner

14 1965 Shelby GT350R

This car outclasses all the other cars on the list. Unfortunately most of your voters are probably too young to know it. Also there were far too few ever produced for man to have driven one.

this car is so beatiful my life long dream is to own a 1966mustang 1965shelbygt500r and a 1964 impala - Micho75

a street legal race car.only 36 were recently sold for over one million dollars!

15 1967 Pontiac GTO

No votes on the GTO? Hardtop GTO Black exterior on Black interior; doesn't get any better than that! "black Beauty" drop a special 400 block in it at have the horses kickin
Or even the Ram Air IV Judge convertible

I just bought mine and look forward to the many years that we will have together.

My 66 gto would eat the 400's all day... But with the port and polish, the 456 posi rear end, the tunnel port headers, the 3 2 carbs, and the hearst comp plus shifter and 5 10 lift cam, and all the extras that it took to get it there, wel... Lets just say I wish I still had her... She was simply delicious... And she feared no man on saturday night.

Had 3 69 Dodge Chargers, two were 440s,man I wish I'd kept and still had them,those were the days

18 1968 Nova SS 396

I LOVE THIS CAR! I made a model of this car and it is the most powerful car of it's day! This baby was MADE for drag racing! Awesome car, my dad drove one, smoothest ride, and fastest acceleration of its day!

Yep, this is it! , The Best muscle ever made, hope GM people revive this model as they have done lately with the Camaro's, I will buy one on a jipi. As a matter of fact I have a 1972 SS 350/330hp Nova with 38,400 original miles INTACTED all around and won't sale it for nothing, so I'll be awaiting anxiously for a new Chevy Nova version, Thanks.

This car back in its day was the fastest production car ever built. Straight from the factory it was turning 12.8's. Not bad at all.

19 1970 Torino Cobra 429

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.

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

20 1968 AMC AMX

Look at the specs and just imagine... or check out some AMX drag racing on YouTube.., but you have to drive one to really appreciate them. Besides the raw, neck snapping torque, these cars handle nicely too. The interiors were kind of crude though. Very basic.

These are beautiful beasts fast as hell
