AUSTRALIAN MUSCLE CARS


This website is dedicated to muscle cars. You might be wondering what a muscle car is. A muscle car is typically used to describe a mid –size car that has a large powerful motor. The power to weight ratio is also quite high. Basically the term muscle car is used to refer to a variety of high powered cars.

 

Most muscle cars originate from the U.S.A and Australia. The common theme between these muscle cars is that they are 2 doors, rear wheel drive with a monstrous engine. They also have special trim which makes them highly desirable and are designed for maximum acceleration.

 

In the world of Muscle Cars, Australia has a great tradition. Ford Australia, Holden and Chrysler make up the foundations of the Australian Muscle car community. With cars like the Ford Falcon GTHO Phase 3 of 1971 which was powered by a factory 351 Cleveland, along with all the GT and GTHO models.

 

Holden produced the one and only Holden Monaro followed by the release of 4 high powered Toranas. The GTR-XU1 (1970-1973), SLR 5000 (74-77), L34 (74) and the A9X (77)

 

Chrysler produced the R/T Valiant Charger from 71-73. The main distinction of the Chrysler was the Hemi Engines featuring triple Weber Carburetors.

 

The Australian Muscle Car era some might say ended with the release of the Australian Design Rule regarding emissions in 1976.
