The muscle cars are roaring into ACM for our exhibit, American Muscle: Rivals to the End, featuring a number of coveted cars from this beloved era, including a 1969 427 Yenko Camaro, 1969 Dodge Super Bee and a 1970 Buick GSX.
As a strong manufacturing economy fueled a growing middle class’s thirst for roaring V8 engines throughout the ’60s, the muscle car wars divided fans among which brands they felt delivered the ultimate muscle car. Enthusiast-focused automakers created brand loyalists in the pre-1973 oil embargo era, before skyrocketing oil prices brought ever-increasing engine size and horsepower figures screeching to a halt.
American Muscle boasts an astonishing 20 cars, all of which have a unique place in American motoring history. Regardless if you are a Chevy, Chrysler or Ford fan, this unique display will take you back in time to when these cars tore up the countryside and the drag strip.
