40 Classic ’70s Cars Drivers Still Love Today

  1. MGB GT V8

When they presented it in 1973, the MGB GT V8 was powered by a 3.5-liter engine that produced 175 HP. That was a good figure by early ’70s standards. The car immediately became a strong seller because it combined the practicality of a bigger cabin and trunk with the performance of a V8 engine. It achieved a 0 to 60 mph time of just 7.7 seconds.

American buyers loved the GT V8 since it offered compact dimensions and improved practicality with more power and performance, which was a winning combination.

  1. Toyota Celica A30

Toyota built the Celica on a standard Toyota Carina base. It was one step above the popular Corolla in terms of size, technology, and engine power. They presented the new Celica to American buyers in 1970 with two body styles, a regular two-door coupe and hardtop fastback.

Immediately, drivers compared the new Celica to the Ford Mustang because it was inspired by the Ford pony car. Also, it was a sportier version of a regular production sedan, just like the Mustang.

  1. Chevrolet Monte Carlo

Chevrolet introduced the Monte Carlo as a personal luxury coupe back in 1970. They built it on a modified Chevelle platform.

The Monte Carlo was a handsome coupe-only car with a V8 engine and an attractive interior that offered a decent performance. Even though most Monte Carlos came with the smaller V8 engine for drivers who concentrated on the luxury aspect of this model, there was one crazy muscle option in the form of the SS 454 package.

These are 40 well-known ’70s classics from the disco era. Did you ever own or drive one of these icons? If you can’t afford to buy one, just visit any classic car show, and you’re sure to see some of these ’70s legends in all of their glory.
