(RareCarMarket.com) – Muscle cars may not be the fanciest or even the most expensive cars to own, but there’s just something about all that power that thrills people. Of course, as with anything else, some models have set themselves apart from the rest. Here are some of the best limited-edition muscle cars to ever hit the market.
Certainly one of the more rare muscle cars, the Hurst 300 came when the Chrysler 300’s performance was diminishing. The company’s answer to GM’s Cadillac and Ford’s Lincoln changed in 1970. Powered by a massive 7.2-liter 440 cubic inch engine, the Hurst 300 produced about 375 hp. These cars are a bit more luxurious than other muscle cars but featured a unique spoiler and a white and gold paint job. Chrysler only produced 485 Hurst 300s.
Buick created the GSX Stage 1 in 1970. This car remained Buick’s top muscle car until the creation of the GNX in 1987. The GSX Stage 1 actually began as a showpiece to bring highlight attention to the new Skylark styling. Buick equipped the GSX Stage 1 with a 455 cubic inch engine producing 360 hp, a statistic many believe is underrated.
The Boss 429 Mustang came with a 7-liter V8 engine capable of cranking out 375 hp, with experts claiming it was producing more. Mustang was the talk of the town after its 1964 debut, but Chrysler and GM designed stiff competition. Not resting on its laurels, Ford created the Boss 429 Mustang to answer that competition.
The ‘69/’70 model years were possibly the peak for American muscle cars, and these three models were among some of the best. Their limited production and extraordinary specifications keep them in demand today when buyers can find them.
