20 Blue Oval’s Legendary Classic Muscle Car Hits

  1. Ford Mustang Boss 351

In 1971, the Mustang received another thorough restyle, the final one for the first generation. The car again grew in size and weight. Also, it featured a new sharper look with a much wider track. Unfortunately, the Boss 302 and Boss 429 versions were gone but the Grande and Mach I stayed, albeit with lower power ratings.

However, there was one interesting model Ford introduced in 1971, and that was the Boss 351. They made it for one year only, so the ’71 Mustang Boss 351 was one of the rarest Mustangs ever. In fact, Ford only built 1,800 of them.

It was powered by a highly tuned version of the 351 V8 engine with around 330 HP. It was fast, good looking and more expensive than the Mach 1 version of the same model year. And today, it is a true collector’s item.

  1. Ford Torino Cobra

As the last true muscle car of the bygone era, Ford introduced the Torino GT in 1971. It came with the Cobra Jet engine to produce 370 HP under its long hood. The 1971 model was one of the coolest looking cars out there. It had the semi-fastback rear end, low stance, and wide track.

Also, it came in coupe or convertible form. The engine options were simple, too. You could get the venerable 428 Cobra Jet or 429 Cobra motor, both with the same power ratings.

These are 20 of the Blue Oval’s greatest, most legendary classic muscle car hits. Which one was your favorite? All these cars came with devastating designs and unparalleled power.
