1968 Chevrolet Imapla, Biscayne, Caprice and Bel Air

1968 Chevrolet Impala Black-Front View-Top 50 Fastest Muscle Cars
1968 Chevrolet Caprice was a "classic" new roof, said this year's sales brochure. "Nothing on the road is more distinctly elegant." Again, complimentary luxuries made Whims and ashtray lights, an electric clock, and a center armrest - and wildest places and door panels. Carpets whim even ran up the side kick panels and door bottoms.

Promoted as "The Chevrolet Grand," Caprichos were heavily advertised and would eventually replace the Impala as an icon in the American psyche. "It can make you feel richer," the brochure continued. "The price a Chevrolet."

New windows were ventipanes but promised a higher profile. Astro Ventilation should pull outside air without having to open a window. Most Chevrolets have hidden windshield wipers. Retractable headlights cost $ 79, but few were sold, despite the appearance of front-end cleaner that helped to create. The formal Custom Coupe, previously an exclusive Caprice, became available as an Impala.

Front-ends pattern had a new face, while the rear bumper made triple "horseshoe" shaped taillights. Plush new interior has also helped attract buyers. Biscayne again served as the lowest price of life-size model - and looked at the paper. Bel Airs continued to attract middle-of-the-roaders, but overwhelmed in Impala sales charts, as it had for years.

The posh Caprice was coming strong, however, with 115,500 produced this season. So as sales climb Caprice, the Impala Super Sport's suffered a decline. No longer a separate series, the Super Sport package was a mere $ 179 option for both Impala coupes and convertibles. Only 38,210 Impalas were so equipped, including 1,778 with 427 cubic inch V-8 engine (dubbed SS 427).

Size cars could have a modest 250 cubic-inch six, a 307 cubic inch V-8, or a pair of 327s, or a power of 325-396 cubic inch V-8. Topping the list was the great 427, rated at 385 or 425 horsepower - enough force, even in a heavy Chevy. Decisions, decisions.

Dodge Charger 1969 History, Modification and Specification -The Muscle Car Legend -

1969 Dodge Charger Pro Touring-Rear Right View

 1969 Dodge Charger History
That was the distinctive new boots and the Daytona 500, both creatures of the "aero wars" of the day being waged by the Ford and Chrysler as they sought dominance in NASCAR stock-car racing. As it turned out, the recessed grille and flying-buttress inset rear window that looked so great in the 68 Charger was a washout in aerodynamic 190 mph high-banked oval. To create the 1969 Dodge Charger 500, Chrysler engineers began by connecting the nasal cavity of an R / T with a Coronet grille (headlights and nonretracting) rose to the front edge of the body. Meanwhile, they quelled lift for flush mounting in the rear.

Dodge produced 392 of these cars for street use in order to ratify the Charger 500 for racing. Race-prepared 500s went on to claim 19 NASCAR wins, but specially designed Ford Torino and Mercury Cyclones won 30.

1969 Dodge Charger Modifications
Back to the wind tunnel were the Chrysler engineers, who returned with Daytona radical. This 1969 Dodge Charger used a length of 18 inches pointed to the nose (including pop-up headlights) that cut drag and downforce added. Not only the Daytona 500 is to keep the rear window, but still lower lift mounting a horizontal tail stabilizer on huge vertical extensions that rose from the deck. With 503 produced to meet the rulesmakers races, the Daytona track made its debut in the final season of NASCAR 69 - a little too late for Ford to return to the attack. Still, the Daytona proved capable of 200-mph running speeds.

Issues of competition and all of the Daytona 500 came with 426-cid race Hemis. Those intended for retail customers could be purchased with the trainer or the Street Hemi 375 horsepower 440-cid V-8 Magnum. Anyway, they were the final words of the 1969 Dodge Charger.

Plymouth Barracuda 1970-1974-The Legendary Muscle Car

Plymouth two distinct concepts engineers carved out of clay, both with a Superbird-inspired aerodynamic body, and finally reached a consensus on which an operating concept car could be built. The 1975 Barracuda was planned before the end of the 1970-1974 cycle model. Due to a rapidly changing automotive market, the concepts were broken and the 1975 Barracuda was not put into production. The Barracuda was dropped after 1974, a victim of the 1973 energy crisis

In 2007, Motor Trend reported a rumor that Chrysler is considering reviving the Barracuda in 2009.  However, the Barracuda was not reintroduced to the side of the third generation Dodge Challenger.
