Top 15 Hot Rods
For nearly as long as cars have been around, enthusiasts have been souping them up and turning them into speedy roadsters. With such a long history, choosing the top 15 hotrods is no easy task. These stand-outs, however, are worthy of the title.
- ‘37 Lincoln Zephyr. For cool styling and appeal, the Zephyr cannot be beat.
- ‘67 Camaro. This early Camaro surely earns a spot in the top 15 hotrods of all time for its speed and popularity.
- ’32 Ford 3-window coupe. Made famous by American Grafitti, this Ford is surely the most copied hotrod.
- ’32 Ford Roadster. Impossible though it may seem the ’32 Roadster may be even cooler than the coupe.
- ’77 Trans Am. Thanks to Smokey and the Bandit, sales of this fast and fun hotrod spiked in the late ‘70s.
- ZZ Top Coupe. No other hotrod in the ‘80s was as cool as this one, featured on the album covers and all over MTV with the band ZZ Top.
- ’33 Willys 77 Coupe. The adventurous styling of the ’33 Coupe makes this one of the top 15 hotrods.
- The Batmobile. The classic car 1960s show created one of the most iconic hotrods of all time. Originally a ’55 Lincoln Futura Concept car, the Batmobile of the ‘60s has never been recreated in modern incarnations.
- The first Shelby Cobra. Built in 1961, Carroll Shelby’s original Cobra was one of the best hotrods ever built.
- ’50 Mercury Hardtop. With “sled” styling, the Mercury is one of the coolest looking hotrods ever made.
- ’64 Pontiac GTO. Both the ’65 and the ’66 GTOs were great classic cars, but the fast and souped up ’64 makes the list of the top 15 hotrods.
- ’69 Dodge Charger. The General Lee from the Dukes of Hazard was one of the most influential hotrods ever created.
- ’53 Ford F100. This truck may still be around today, but for hotrodding capabilities, look to the ‘50s.
- ’51 Chevy 3100. Here is another example of a great pickup hotrod.
- ’55 American Grafitti Chevy. This was clearly one of the coolest and most influential screen cars and one of the top 15 hotrods of all time.
