34: 1966 Pontiac Executive
Another interesting muscle car that came around during this period was the Pontiac Executive. It sold as a coupe or sedan and featured a powerful V8 engine. As the lineup was fairly cramped around this era, the Executive didn’t get a lot of attention. Time has not been kind to the car and has made finding one fairly impossible. You can still find these from time to time, but they are generally rusted out or in the junkyard. That’s not to say that the Executive was a bad car because it had a lot of potential.
But Pontiac had focused resources on other more popular cars such as the incoming Firebird and the GTO. The Executive fell to the backburner and its sales per year were under 40,000 units. The 400 CID V8 was a powerful engine but without the financial backing and advertising, the car had a lackluster response. The reliability and overall lifespan of the car were limited at best and finding one is a challenge these days.
