The deep growl of a V8 engine makes everyone within earshot stop and turn toward your impressive ride. The powerful motor mounted in the two-door coupe is the muscle car's unmistakable calling card. American muscle cars hit the road in 1948, with the legendary Oldsmobile Rocket 88. With the first high-compression overhead valve (OHV) V8 in a lighter chassis meant for a V6, the Rocket 88 won eight of the 10 NASCAR races in the 1950 season. The dawn of the 1960s saw fierce competition between Ford and Mopar (Chrysler, Dodge, and Plymouth) for drag racing domination. Among these classic muscle cars were the 1962 Dodge Dart, 1964 and 1965 Pontiac GTO, and the 1960 Plymouth Fury, powered by the then-new Slant Six engine. The Ford Mustang pony cars of the mid-1960s gave way to the fastback Mustang line in 1967. Whether you enjoy returning an American classic to its original glory or you seek a beautifully restored example, eBay's dependable sellers are a great source for pristine and project muscle cars, as well as parts and accessories.
