6. Ford Torino Talladega
Ford was always a successful brand in the NASCAR championship. When Dodge started moving with specially prepared Chargers, Ford had to react with the Torino Talladega. The idea behind the Talladega (named after an Italian city and NASCAR track) was to take standard Torino and homologate it for the super speedway (via Hemmings).
A total of 754 Talladegas were built in such a short time and many of them were used for racing. In contrast to the extreme Charger Daytona, Ford decided to modify the front and the back of the regular Torino. This approach proved to be very successful and the Torino Talladega won many races.
