7 of the Most Obscure, Offbeat Muscle Cars

This is a good video to feature as it highlights some muscle cars which you wouldn’t necessarily expect to be in a list like this one. The word ‘obscure’ definitely relates to the these vehicles.

You get first up the AMC Javelin which is not always on everyone’s radar, but is still quoted as one of those affordable muscle cars which are still a bunch of fun, but not always the most popular. The Mercury Cyclone is another example featured here, but the likes of the Studebaker Super Lark was unexpected, especially with it being quoted as the first muscle car ever built (do you agree with this or not?). You can check out more information about this car here.

The other anomaly here is the Oldsmobile Vista cruiser. In 1974 you got a 455(7.5L) V8 engine in what is on the surface a straightforward grocery getter. A definite sleeper.

If you want a quick dip into a few obscure vehicles not necessarily linked with traditional muscle cars, then check out this video.
