1969 Chevrolet Camaro

The Camaro was the original GM pony car, released as a direct competitor to Ford’s Mustang in 1967. The body was compact and the engine bay was roomy, affording plenty of space for custom drag race powerplants, or any of the eight engines offered from the factory between 1967 and 1969. This numbers-matching ’69 sports […]

1954 Volkswagen Beetle

The key identifying feature of the long-running and largely-unchanged VW Beetle is the rear window. Pre-1953 cars are identified by a split window, 1953-1957 cars have an oval-shaped window, and post-1957 cars (referred to as “classic Beetles,” and the overwhelming majority of surviving Bugs seen on the street) have a rectangular window. The oldest Beetle […]

1966 Ford F-100 Pickup

The F-series pickup is Ford’s best-selling vehicle, the world’s best-selling truck, and the best-selling American vehicle of all time. Nearly 34 million have been sold since 1948. By 1966, the truck was in its fourth generation, with a wider and lower hood, larger front and rear windows, and modern “Twin I-beam” front suspension. These practical […]

The versatility of the platform allowed a range of models spanning from the high-performance Cooper S to a pickup. Examples were built from 1959 through 2000, and […]

1956 Ford Thunderbird

Ford’s Thunderbird came into the scene with a bang in 1955, outselling the Corvette more than 23 to one.  It was marketed as a personal luxury vehicle rather than a sports car, setting itself apart from the rest of the two-seater crowd. 1956 saw some cosmetic and utilitarian enhancements, including an outside mounting of the […]

1965 Pontiac GTO

Muscle car tastes were shifting away from full-size cars by the mid-sixties. But performance-minded designers at GM found themselves constrained by a company policy that limited engine size for smaller body styles. Pontiac designers found a loophole when they stuffed a 389-ci V8 into the mid-size Tempest LeMans and presented it as a “trim package” […]
