Defining the Gentleman’s Muscle Car

Defining the Gentleman’s Muscle Car

1968 Plymouth GTXIf you have ever looked for information about the Plymouth GTX, odds are that you have seen the car named as the “Gentleman’s Muscle Car.” This left me wondering what a gentleman’s muscle car is and what type of men should be driving the other muscle cars.

According to my research, a gentleman’s muscle car is a refined muscle car with sleek design. This is in contrast to the rugged muscle cars that were for the drivers who did not need to go to work in their business attire. The original Plymouth GTX was created in 1967 under the Belvedere brand. A belvedere is an architectural feature that is designed to look upon a pleasant view, which seems fitting for the original name of the muscle car designed for gentlemen.

The Chevelle SS: Chevy’s Classic Muscle Car from 1964 to 1973

Chevelle SS Classic EnterprisesWhen Chevrolet was ready to get into the muscle car movement it did so with the Super Sport, or SS, version of its mid-sized Chevelle, to compete with its brothers GTO and 442. The Chevelle model was an entirely new line for 1964 and Chevy continued to produce it through 1973, when the Malibu name took over. Buyers in the 1960s loved the Chevelle and the SS especially. It proved to be one of Chevy’s best-selling nameplates and the SS impressed both typical buyers and muscle car fans.

This meant that everything from high ball glasses and furniture to women’s hats and automobiles were designed with outerspace in mind. Some of the most exciting cars from the 1960s were designed and named to invoke images of satellites, planets, and rocket ships.

One of the most memorable ‘space race’ cars with the 1960-1961 Ford Galaxie Starline. This car evokes not only the ultimate goal to explore the galaxy, but to do it in a stylish car that zips through the stars.
