Chrysler, Dodge, & Plymouth MUSCLE by Anthony Young As New condition. Chrysler, dodge, and Plymouth muscle cars were born in 1951 when Chrysler introduced its legendary HEMI V-8 engine. True, the early cars propelledby this powerplant were wallowing, overstuffed family sedans, but it was the birth of a new generation of Chrysler cars that dominated streets and highways across the country for nearly 20 years. With the momentum of a freight train, nothing could stop Mopar's mighty muscle cars. Chrysler's first efforts in the horsepower wars were low-key, initially producing Chrysler 300s and Plymouth Furys during the 1950s. but throughout the 1960s and 1970s, the company stomped the pedal to the metal and never looked back. Road runners, Chargers, GTXs, Super Bees, Barracudas, Challengers, Darts, Demons, and dusters were the manufacturer's offerings in an era of cheap gas and ridiculous horsepower ratings. Today, Chrysler continues to wave the muscle car flag, and leads the way in outrageous high performance. If you're not convinced, take a drive in a new Viper or Prowler; all you can do is smile. Chrysler, Dodge & Plymouth MUSCLE takes you on a high-octane, tire burning trip through the world of Scat Pack brawlers, Rapid Transit System heavies, HEMI V-8s, cartoon-decaled Plum Crazy paint jobs, Air Grabberhood scoops, and muchmore. In addition Chryslers racing successes are throughly examined. Author Anthony young's engaging text -- illustrated with 130 color and 70 black and white photographs -- chronicles the entire history of chrysler's mean and nasty blacktop warriors. Covering nearly 50 years of MOPAR muscle, this book is the difinitive history of chrysler's hottest cars. From its inception in 1929, Chrysler Corporation had been laboring in the shadow of Ford and GM, until, in 1955, Chrysler experienced a confluence of styling and performance that catapulted it to the forefront of the industry. Its trendsetting C-300 was beautiful and powerful, and launched a high-performance assault that continued until the early 1970s. Road Runners, Barracudas, Challengers, Chargers and Super Bees, powered by legendary 426 Hemi, 340, 440 and 383 engines, were transformed into the greatest racers of the era. This fascinating volume chronicles Chrysler's high-performance history from the C-300 to today's headturning Viper. A delightful combination of archival and contemporary photographs, plus technological developments, racing, styling, engineering, personalities, promotions and more highlight Chrysler's muscle car era. Marvelously photographed history chronicles Chrysler big-block history from the C-300 to todays rubberneck-inducing Dodge Viper.
