15. 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454
The beginning of the ’70s is considered to be the apex of the muscle-car era. The 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle is proof and true evidence of exactly that, and there were actually two versions of this car offered by Chevrolet – the LS5 and LS6.
While the LS5 version provided 360 horsepower, the LS6 version was able to give out an impressive 450 horsepower. The LS6 with its Holley 4-barrel carburetor definitely deserves a place on our list.
An interesting fact is that no other muscle car was able to equal the horsepower of SS 454 at the time of its manufacture, and that’s why it was one of the best muscle cars of the ’70s era.
The Chevelle SS 454 was able to beat nearly every competitor – and it looked really good doing it. Its line is what really gave the people impression of speed, while the bulged hood made sure people understood that something special is hiding under there.
This old school chevy muscle car is an ideal combination of power, stylish good looks, and comfort. If you want a car that you can hammer down the road late at night and have fun in, this is the classic muscle you’re looking for.
