3: Dodge Charger Daytona

The Charger Daytona is one of the most iconic Mopar muscle cars. The orange color and the giant spoiler on the back of the car made it unlike anything else. Production numbers for this car were quite low, which has made it unique and rare in this modern muscle car market (via Autowise).

Performance-wise, the 440 V8 was a top-notch engine for the period. Obviously, with a modern Hemi V8 swap, this car could be tremendously different than you’d expect. From the performance to the styling, the Charger Daytona is an unforgettable muscle car.

2: Plymouth Roadrunner Superbird

The Plymouth Roadrunner Superbird is one of the most revered NASCARs in history. Richard Petty won numerous races while driving this car, and in return made the Plymouth brand an icon. The Superbird is one of the most desirable muscle cars drivers can get (via Autowise).

When it came to the design of the car, it had a lot of input from Richard Petty. The design of the car was meant to excel in the NASCAR circuit, and it did exactly that.

1: Plymouth Cuda AAR

Another Plymouth that isn’t well remembered is the Plymouth Cuda AAR. This was a performance version of the car that was geared toward specific enthusiasts. The car was a street-legal race car in every sense of the word, and it was designed to perform as such (via Autowise).

Production numbers of the Plymouth Cuda AAR were only 2,724. This means the car is very rare, and it can be hard to get your hands on one. But if you do find one of these, it is a car that has a lot of potential and can perform well.
