Classic cars aren’t classic for nothing!
Turning 50 is significantly different to any other age milestone, generally it means you’ve had life long experiences, you’re mature, and you’re established and overall magnificent!
Now let’s apply this to classic cars – rewind to 1967 and we see the birth of some of the most iconic cars that changed the car-game forever, making history 50 years ago this year.
Lets celebrate a few of our favourite classic cars turning half a century. Here’s a list of our top ten favourites who have just hit the big ‘5-0’…
Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale –This mid-engined sports car is second on the list to celebrate its 50th The car was designed by Franco Scaglione and built by Carrozzeria Marazzi.
Aston Martin DBS – A larger coupe that was intended to be the successor to the Aston Martin DB6. It had more of a modern look of its time and incorporated fastback style rear end and squared off front grille, atypical of Astons at the time.
Chevrolet Camaro – It all started in 67 when the Chevrolet Camaro made its first appearance to the public. It came in three main packages, which were RS, SS, and Z/28.
Ford Mustang – The redesigned pony car kept the first generation Mustang styling, with its long hood and short deck. This was the car to change history forever, and is still to this day, a favourite.
Ford Falcon – An Australian favourite luxury long-wheelbase Ford. One of the best Australian-made best sellers with over 3 million sold in seven generations.
Barracuda – The 1967 Barracuda was a much more muscular version of its older sibling. The Formula S backed that look with the available 383 crammed into the fenderwells.
Impala Super Sport – These cars are considered quite the rarity these days, fitted with options including the 385 hp L34 427 big block being standard.
Ferarri 257 GTB – An Italian favourite that keeps on giving. Under the hood Ferrari’s world killing 4.0 litre V12 had some torque and enough carbs to keep a tuner busy for life. Its super sexy.
Lamborghini Muira – Another Italian favourite we can’t look past is this beast. The Muira really changed the game for Lamborghini. To own one of these nowadays you’d be one lucky person.
Jaguar E type Roadster – In British Racing Green, this has to be one of the favourites of this year. The 3.8 litre straight six produced good power and torque too if you could keep it running.
