The Most Interesting Plymouths

'70 Plymouth BarracudaIn 1928, Chrysler created the Plymouth lineup as their own low priced collection. Sadly for fans of the brand, Plymouth ceased producing cars in 2001. Over the years, there were several interesting Plymouth models that have become icons today.

1960 Plymouth Fury Sunstar: This cool convertible was one of the last winged beauties. It was a truly unique looking car with many unexpected features, like the rotating driver’s seat that allowed easy in and out of the car. With the hooded headlights, pointed tail lights, two-toned paint, and excessive chrome, this car defined the idea of “more is more.”

Pontiac Fiero vs. The World

Pontiac Fiero vs. The World

'85 Pontiac FieroChevy had the Corvette and Pontiac had the Fiero. If you remember the 1980s, then you probably remember these two very different cars. Now, you know that only one of these sport two-seaters still remains available for sale on car lots today. The Pontiac Fiero was a ground-breaking car, but it failed to have the impact that the Corvette had and General Motors just could not get the Fiero to deliver.

Ford Fairlane: More Than Just a Car

Ford Fairlane: More Than Just a Car

66 Ford FairlaneThe Ford Fairlane is an iconic car that was produced for 15 years between 1955 and 1970. This car is one of the best known Ford models in the history of the brand. It went through several extreme makeovers in its 15 years of production, from the beautiful Fairlane Victoria model with elegant lines in 1956 to the Talladega version that raced around the track as a muscle car in the late 1960s. The Ford Fairlane, in all of its generational changes, remains a highly collectible car today. As throwback versions of classic cars became popular in the early 21st century, Ford Motor Company almost brought back the Fairlane name with what we now know as the Ford Flex.

The 1966 Dodge Charger

The 1966 Dodge Charger

'66 Dodge ChargerThe “Leader of the Dodge Rebellion” was introduced at the 1966 Rose Bowl, and although the Dodge brothers didn’t know it at the time, the 1966 Charger would impact muscle car history forever.

'66 Dodge ChargerThe Charger was built off of the Dodge Coronet chassis, but utilized its own body. This introduction was Dodge’s first fastback, high-speed street racer. The 1966 Charger was the first U.S. production vehicle to boast a spoiler, which was implemented to solve the lift that its body created. David Pearson drove a #6 Cotton Owens-prepared Charger, and won the NASCAR Grand National championship in 1966 (in addition to 14 other first-place finishes).

Rent-a-Racer: Hertz and the Muscle Car Era

Rent-a-Racer: Hertz and the Muscle Car Era1968 AMX In 1966, the Hertz Corporation through a wrench into traditional car rental programs with the Rent-a-Racer program. The company partnered with Carroll Shelby who created a hot rod Mustang that Hertz could rent to customers who not only wanted a rental car, but one that would be a joy to drive. You can no longer rent a 1966 Shelby Mustang, but you might be able to find some of the remaining 1000 GT350H models that were original built for the program.

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.
