Muscle cars are fascinating machines, aren’t they? They’re romanticized, sought after, and coveted by their owners to a point that most people will never understand. From a manufacturing standpoint the formula was simple. Pull a mid-sized car from your line-up, stuff the biggest and baddest engines in your arsenal under the hood, and then sell them to the public for a reasonable price.
Some of the most desirable were the Mopar B-Bodies produced from 1966-1974. Chargers, Coronets, Satellites, Road Runners, Belvederes and the GTX are all examples of how Ma-Mopar tried to take over the muscle car world. And with a host of big and small blocks, as well as transmissions, combined with some of the best styling to ever come out of Detroit, it’s no wonder that both the owners and public alike still look upon them with wonder. On this episode of the Hemmings Hot Rod BBQ Podcast, the crew (who also happen to be owners) talk about why Mopar B-Bodies have stood the test of time and are still a favorite amongst collectors.
