The 1960’s was the golden age of the muscle car. The decade started with cars build specifically for the drag racing crowd. The compact Dodge Dart was fitted with a 413ci Max Wedge engine and promptly dominated the strip. Ford created the Thunderbolt from a stripped down Fairlane. With its fiberglass body boards and its lack of all comfort features, it was a real barn burner. Quarter mile times of less than twelve seconds were common. Ford also offered 200 copies of a stripped down version of the Galaxies with a 427 cubic inch engine. This was the same engine powering the Thunderbolt. These were very limited production models and only a few copies were sold. The only muscle car offered to the masses during the early part of the decade was the Impala Super Sport with a 409ci engine. Pontiac GTO

The flood gates opened in 1964 with the introduction of the Pontiac GTO. The GTO was the first of the classic muscle cars. It was an intermediate sized car and it came with a 389ci engine. Performance was very acceptable with 0-60 time of 7.7 seconds and a ¼ mile time of 15.8 seconds. However, performance was only part of the success of the GTO. The secret to the GTO’s success was three fold. The looks were right, the performance was right and the performance was right. These three factors launched many muscle cars over the next few years.
