1973 'Cuda - 500ci Mopar Power

Mopar cars of the early 1970s are well-known for their array of eye-catching High Impact colors, such as Plum Crazy, Sublime, Go Mango, and Panther Pink. Those vibrant hues were impossible to miss, and closely associated with the in-your-face attitude of these classic Dodge and Plymouth muscle cars. But even without brightly-colored paint, these vehicles have immense presence on the road. This 1973 'Cuda is a perfect example of what we mean.

1972 Road Runner - Reborn Mopar

Classic cars were made to be driven, and the best way to appreciate them is from behind the wheel with an open road ahead. However, there's an inherent element of risk every time a car leaves the garage. Whether it's the result of a distracted driver or an honest mistake, there's always a chance that another motorist might crash into your prized vehicle. That's exactly what happened to this 1972 Road Runner. Fortunately, Thelma Garcia was able to rescue the damaged Plymouth and restore it to its original condition.

1964 Plymouth Valiant - Practicality & Fun

In 1960, Plymouth introduced the new Valiant as a compact alternative to larger full-size models such as the Belvedere, Fury, and Savoy. The first-generation Valiant bore assertive styling cues that included protruding fins alongside the body, angled oval tail lamps, and a faux spare tire on the trunk lid. For the 1963 model year, Plymouth redesigned the Valiant with clean lines and simplified styling. This change was well-received by the public, leading to an uptick in sales for the little Plymouth.

1969 Dart GTS - A-Body Muscle

When it comes to Mopar muscle cars, many people tend to think of E-body vehicles such as the Dodge Challenger and Plymouth 'Cuda, or B-body vehicles like the Dodge Charger and Plymouth Road Runner. The Mopar A-body served as a platform for smaller and more economical cars like the Dodge Dart and Plymouth Valiant. However, the A-body also proved it could hold its own in the muscle car arena.

1969 Dodge Dart GT - 430,000 Original Miles

We're always impressed to hear about "survivor" cars, found in barns or dusty garages in all-original condition with extremely low miles. However, it's just as cool to see vehicles at the opposite end of the spectrum. Some classic cars are daily-driven year after year, decade after decade, racking up miles and soldiering on with incredible reliability. Such is the case for this 1969 Dodge Dart GT. Its slant-6 engine has covered nearly 430,000 miles without a single rebuild.

1967 Dart Convertible - Top-Down Every Day

There's nothing quite like driving a convertible, especially when that convertible is a classic. Cruising with the top down and a cool breeze in your hair is one of those experiences that's bound to put a smile on your face. However, changing ambient temperature and weather conditions means you'll probably end up driving with the top up sometimes — unless you're Mario Molina. He tells us he put the top down on his 1967 Dodge Dart 10 years ago, and hasn't put it back up since then.

1973 Dodge Dart Sport - Back on the Road

1973 marked a turning point in the history of the automobile. Increasing restrictions on tailpipe emissions had already begun to impact horsepower ratings, and new crash protection safety standards led to increases in the size and weight of vehicles. Then, in October of '73, the OPEC oil embargo would cause fuel prices to skyrocket. Despite these challenges facing the muscle car segment, fun and exciting cars could still be found if you knew where to look.

1969 Plymouth Satellite Sedan - A Practical Classic

When we think of classic cars, it's easy to focus on the most powerful and sporty top-trim models. For the Mopar B-body platform, this means that most enthusiasts dream of the Dodge Charger or Plymouth GTX and Road Runner. Although those vehicles are certainly memorable, there are also many other forms of the B-body platform that are certainly worthy of appreciation.

1972 Plymouth Scamp - Restored A-Body

Scamp is a term for a mischevious person who goes against the grain; a rascal, rogue, or scalawag. However, a scamp isn't a serious outlaw, instead opting to toe the line in a likeable way. This is an apt description for the sporty two-door hardtop seen here.

1972 Dodge Demon - Fun in the Sun

The name "Demon" has received substantial interest the last few years as a result of the 2018 SRT Demon, a heavily-modified Dodge Challenger that can run the quarter mile in an astonishing 9.6 seconds. But the origin of this MOPAR car name can be traced back to 1971, when it was released as a sporty fastback version of the Dodge Dart.
