This week, we take a look back at the top 10 quickest Muscle Cars as reported by various car magazines from 1970! These aren't OUR recorded numbers, but those published by the media back in 1970. We're pairing those times up with an example of a similar car in The Brothers Collection.

      I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT THE FORD MUSTANG WITH 351 4 SPEED AND LIGHTWEIGHT BODY WOULD HAVE BEEN IN THERE SOMEWHERE . OR MY 1976 350 CAMARO TYPE 2 HEADS 4-SPEED I COULD BURN THE TIRES IN 3 GEARS . OH WELL .....

      @Moon Pie I have seen a 67 GTO 4-speed and myself get beat in a stock race with good drivers by a Ford 289 automatic in 1977 . I was there and driving my camaro . Both myself and the GTO got beat . So 426's and 440's and 454's don't always win the races . As you know rear end gears can make all the difference .

      @rossco henderson - They aren't discussing anything but 1970 tested cars to start with.
      A 76 Camaro is not a fast car compared to these cars.

      And a small block will not beat any of these top of the heap BB cars.

      back in the days a friend bought a 1970 six pack RT charger it was a barge uge car 440 cuin. with simple bolt on including headers it was low 12s spinning tires and all. with a little more work and a small diet it would have been low 11s easy. miss those days. the hemi cuda convertible is a unicorn today.

      I miss those days. Cruising the Sonic on a Saturday night with my brother in his 1968 Plymouth GTX 440. Someone would start their car and rev their engine, and it was ON! We would drive down to the old industrial park where there was a perfect 1/8th mile stretch of road and show those guys our tail lights! Golden memories.

      The 1970 Nova SS with the (396) really a 402 with 488 rear was the fastest, if you were lucky to get the ones that came thru with headers you got almost 465HP, I put headers on mine and traction bars and a few other things and was turning the low 11's all day long with11" ripple wall tires. Dyne's out at 463.

      @Moon Pie It's my understanding that it was developed to compete in Stock car racing but I would have thought the retail version would be geared for drag racing. It's a hemi for god's sake

      Two things about the BOSS 429 -
      1st was there a test done on it that year.
      2nd on the strip, the 428 scj was faster.

      back in 2010 at 4500ft altitude i ran a 13.5 on a 05 Harley Sportster at 13.5 second run,,,,and didn't break 100mph,,I was told you can't do a 13 second run without breakin 100mph,,,,,well I did,,,got the time slip!!!!

      I can believe that. 13.5 car barely brakes 100. A bike with a quicker start (low weight) could do it.

      These cars were so bad ass when I was a kid, itโ€™s hard to believe most modern cars will blow the doors off them all. Hell the 2.7 Ford Ecoboost F150 is Quicker lol.

      I loved the big blocks but the small block chevys were screaming. They were lighter and could be built for pocket change. Parts were everywhere and the research was being done at a madmans pace all over the states. That was the engine to have in a street screamer. Yes if you put 10 grand into a big block you could get into the low 11's or high 10's but you could do the same thing with 5 grand with a small block. Knoledge is horsepower.

      While I love Mustangs, they were always just a little slower - The Ford 427 R code was up there with the best but discontinued in 67. This video is only for cars tested that year as well.

      All VERY interesting, and thank you for your time documenting the lineage of every one of these beautiful cars. I'm 48 years old now and as a kid or young man I would always have a bias toward my favorite car of that particular week, but know with my old age and experience I can look back, remember and realize just how much I loved each and every one of the cars you showed and mentioned. What a great time in American automobile history even with the pending fuel crisis that ruined the fun for us all for some time, at least with the advancements in today's technology it is back and badder than it ever was! But the lines and the beauty of the cars that came out of the sixties and seventies can never be reproduced. You can't paint the Mona Lisa twice, right. I must say though, the most original shape and design to come out of North America since the sixties and seventies that is truly stand alone and gorgeous , is the Dodge Viper. Speaking specifically from an aesthetic design point of view. At least that's my opinion. Thanks again for your time.
