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.
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.
