Best Muscle Cars


The Contenders: Page 2

21 1971 Ford Falcon GTHO Phase III

The ultimate Australian muscle car - 351 Cleveland V8 engine, 370 bhp, fully functional "shaker" air intake and front and rear spoilers. Only 300 were made, so they are very rare and valuable. It is alleged that the Phase I was the fastest 4-door production car in the world in 1971, with a top speed of 142 mph.

22 1969 Torino Talladega

This is the car that owned NASCAR in 1969. It won more races than any other bodystyle during the 1969 and 1970 Aero Wars years. Not only was it a great race car, it was a great sleeper muscle car as it carried almost no exterior badging to let anyone know about the 428 CobraJet under its hood. It was a great stealth rocket that looked fast, even when parked.

23 2012 Camaro ZL1

Bought a 2013 ZL1 convertible. Growls like the late sixties and early seventies muscle cars. J
Just wants to go!

This is a rediculous list of the top musclecars. These are all chic cars. No super bees, no fairlane Grand Theft Auto, no cougar eliminater, no roadrunners, no amx, no max wedge mopars. No nascar fords, NO SUPERBIRD. No pontiac SDs. No superstock darts. My 67 belvedere could blow all those posers doors off... What a joke

24 1970 GTO 455

Had one of these and took it up to 158 mph

25 2009 Challenger SRT8

Had 1971 loved it. So I bought a 2014 srt8 challenger and it is awesome. Nothing it don't eat in the quater especially camaros, vettes and mustangs. At least the Mustangs put up a fight.

26 1970 Chevy Nova

How was this beaten by the Olds 442!?

27 2010 Camaro SS

Love this car for the money really really hard to beat!

28 1970 Charger Daytona Hemi
29 1969 Firebird

The firebird should be a lot higher in the ranking. The car is beautiful and fast, and has a lot of horse power.

Beautiful car, fast, and just good everything. Should be number one. Most beautiful car on this list. - FFDP

Go Smokey and the Bandit! best movie ever and the best muscle car ever!
- dudeguyman

Firebirds are very nice cars and are very fast, some Firebirds are even used as nascars. They rosette to be a lot higher.

30 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am

1977 Trans Am looks better - mikeyjay

Oh yeah its amazing, breaker breaker...

31 1974 455 Trans Am
32 1971 Hemi GTX
33 1968 Camaro

I couldn't decide if I should put SS or Z/28, then I realized that even the plain jane is a better muscle car than a FORD anyday.

34 1966 Nova SS

I can't believe it's not in the top 10. Weight to power ratio, with a 327 and 4 speed, extremely fast back then, and looked awesome

35 1968 Mercury Cyclone 428

a car is only as good as you can make it and as good as you can drive. I had the 68 cyclone when I was a kid. it was a rod right off the bat. all I can say is give me back my cyclone. if not 69 charger hemi or 70 cuda hemi or 70 superbird or daytona or 70 mach one super cobra or 68 to 70 hemi road runner. these are my tops, there are some others only if set up with certain bfm engines. tanks to all and keep some rubber on the rims

the cyclone is such a unique lead sled it deserves more credit

36 1970 Buick GSX

One of the fastest stock muscle cars of its time. Highly underrated

More Torque than any other car on the list

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.

37 1970 Rebel Machine

Don't be like everyone else! Be your own person. Amc made some very cool cars
Everybody has a camaro, chevelle or mustang!

Underrated car, and hella quick for an AMC. 340HP on "The Machine" models make it faster than you might think at first. - CubeRG

38 2013 Dodge Viper V 2 Comments
39 2008 Pontiac G6 GXP

Fast as hell compact Pontiac - mikeyjay

40 1970 Hemi Challenger
