  1. 1. Top Muscle cars from 1970s
  2. 2. 1970 Chevelle SS 454 LS6 (Chevy) Although 454 lacked some of the it factor of the 427 that made the big block a legend, the larger displacement engine deserves credit. At 450 HP it was a worthy powerplant in any community. The 1970 Chevelle is without a doubt the most popular GM offering to date. An all-time favorite model, a 70 with the Super Sport package is icing on the cake.
  3. 3. 1971 Corvette LS6 (Chevy) While the LS6 454 engine wasnt available on the 70 Corvette, the 70 Chevelle earned the top spot in GMs lineup. The following year, however, the 71 came with aluminum cylinder heads and at 425 HP, it was still a beast.
  4. 4. 1970 Camaro Z28 LT1(Chevy) A street-able motor with increased torque in the low end, versus the high-revving 302, the 350 LT1 is a powerhouse. Combined with a Z28 suspension package, the second-gen (70 '81) was actually a step toward a fine touring vehicle, as opposed to a straight line beast.
  5. 5. 1971 Hemi Cuda (Chrysler/Dodge) While the 1970 performance-oriented Cuda model first wowed consumers, the 71 is more desirable, styling- wise. The cool staggered grill and 4 headlights instead of 2 on the 70 made aesthetic waves. The 425 factory-rated HP in the Cuda goes down as the most revered Mopar on street or strip.
  6. 6. 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T (Chrysler/Dodge) Lets face it: the original design is epic, leaving very little room for improvement for the models in showrooms today. The R/T came standard with a 440 motor, which most would not have described as standard.
  7. 7. 1978 Dodge Lil Red Express (Chrysler/Dodge) With a 360 V8 this pick up recorded the fastest 0-60 times for any production car from 1978. Enough said. This truck had a visual appeal of its own with the smoke stack style exhaust near the cabs back window.
  8. 8. 1970 Buick GSX (GM) As GM divisions consistently tried to one-up each other, the Buick 455 motor was the crowning achievement for Buick. Combining the popular A-body chassis with 510-lb. ft. torque resulted in a vehicle both grandma and sonny boy were happy to drive.
  9. 9. 1973 Pontiac Trans Am SD-455 (GM) When all other manufacturers cut performance, Pontiac was still trying to stand out from the crowd. The optional 310 HP and SD-455 available on the Formula and Trans Am models, made this platform even more formidable.
  10. 10. 1978 Trans Am (Pontiac/GM) With a great body style, sweet W72 400-cid engine option and a 4-speed transmission; this car was the full package. With the additional WS6 suspension, it handled better than any other car of the 70s. The 1977 hit film Smokey and The Bandit really helped this car rise to stardom.
  11. 11. 1971 Mustang Boss 351 (Ford) The Mustang kept evolving in both styling and engine displacement. In 1971, a new 351 Cleveland motor with 330 HP raised the bar. The 1970 Boss 351 variant gets top marks for being well rounded both visually and performance-wise, more so than its predecessors.
  12. 12. And before you ask, we didnt forget about these guys 1970 Plymouth Superbird: remember that large pronounced wing? 1970 AAR Cuda 340 Six-Pack: The baby brother of the Mighty Hemi Cuda 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A: The non-descript sedan of the 1970s
