Names and acclaimed: Top 25 classic Australian muscle cars
AMC names our top 25 most desirable Australianbuilt performance cars of the classic muscle car period – 1967 to 1978.
Eighty-three issues – and counting – of Australian Muscle Car magazine is testament to this country’s rich heritage of homegrown high performance. Three issues ago we provided an introductory guide to the top 25 classic American muscle cars. We thought it was an appropriate way to kick off our ‘Top 25’ section given that the United States, as the birthplace of the muscle car, has had such an influence on our own scene. This time we’re staying right at home with a list, in chronological order, of the most desirable Australian-built performance cars of the classic muscle car period – 1967 to 1978. It’s a mix of cars from the big three: 10 each from Ford and Holden, plus five from Chrysler. In each case we attempt to sum up why each model is desirable – and it’s not purely about 0-100km/h and Bathurst results.
We’ve capped our list to cars anyone could have walked into a dealer’s showroom and bought if they had the cash, inclination and, in many cases, were quick enough off the mark. Have
your say and you could win one of five DVD copies of Mad Max: Fury Road, courtesy of Roadshow Entertainment. MM:FR is available from September 2 on DVD and Blu-ray.
