When I first compiled this list, it was really for my own benefit so I could have a quick reference to all the major American muscle cars produced between the mid-60s and mid-70s. Basically, the most popular makes and years for that golden age of high displacement muscle machines. Now it’s time to pass it on to you good folks, so you have a quick reference to see the most popular muscle cars at a glance.
Now, I know there will be a few exceptions here and there missing, so if you see any that are not included, please comment below so that we can add them and make the best list on the Internet of all things muscle car.
