60′s Cars

1960s: If the 1950s were all flash, the 1960s were all dash. The size of cars and trucks grew larger during the 1960s, but so did the cubic inches under the hoods, and it didn’t take long for that 1960s free spirit to channel the power of a full-size car engine into the chassis of a smaller car to produce spirited power. In addition to hairy quarter-mile heroes, the era produced refined cocktail cruisers and increasing amounts of kiddie-carrying station wagons. Then and now, there’s a 1960s car or truck for every taste, yet they all have something in common: good looks and good power.
