These never get any love, but I found them to be a nice looking car, in an odd sort of way.
The 61 Continental is my favorite year, but the 60 Ford Galaxy is a beauty and really doesn't get much radio play...
Easy answer 1. 62 Chevy Blair. 2. 61 ford star liner 3. 61 Pontiac catilina 4. 60 ford star liner 5.62 Blair (again)
This Mopar was once stored in a dealership in my hometown of Bloomington, Illinois, at the McAtee Dodge dealership.
1) 1963 Chevrolet Corvette
2) 1963 Chrysler 300J
3) 1963 Buick Riviera
4) 1968 Dodge Charger
5) 1965 Chevrolet Corvair
I like this one!!
1965 Buick RIv
1963 Corvette roadster
1966 Cad Eldorado
1963 Grand Prix
1962 Chrysler 300
I like the 60 Starliner more than the 61 but would take the styling of the 60 Edsel HT over both. The ass looks better IMO. And I like the grill too. Basically the same car, I guess but it flows better.
1961 Bubble back window Chevy...
On my all time short list of favorite cars:
62 Corvette (not the 63, sorry)
64 Pontiac GTO
Some cars that I wish I had enough style to drive:
62 Lincoln Continental
60 Cadillac DeVille
63 Buick Riviera
1961 Chevy Belair 2 door post :
1961 Pontiac Bubble Top:
1961 Buick Bubble Top:
I'm into Mopars but my vote would be '61 Starliner.
1960 Impala 2-door sport coupe
1961 Buick LeSabre 2-door sedan (I had one!)
1962 Bel Air 2-door sport coupe (bubble top)
1963.5 Galaxie (I had one!)
1960 Olds 2-door bubble top (any of 'em)
1960 Pontiac Star Chief 2-door sedan
1962 Olds Starfire
1964 Chevelle 2-door station wagon
Thanks for giving a nod to the 1960 Fords. I've been driving a Fairlane 500 for many years. It's probably the weirdest Ford of the 60's, sharing very little DNA with any other Ford in terms of design, aside from the 61 T-bird. I read that the fins actually made the car slightly too wide to be street legal. I love the bright stainless fins though! Makes the car super easy to park and maneuver because all the corners are visible and marked. I got so good at parking it, I could put it within an inch of the garage door without any hassle.
61 Star Fire
some time a little sheetmetal rearangement can help the looks of even an odd looking car as in this redesign workshop
My favorite....1960 Ford Sunliner....I saw a soft, pastel-yellow convertible recently, and it was just breathtaking...I'd love to have one!!!
1960 Chrsyler 300, 1963 Chrysler 300, 1961 Plymouth Fury, 1964 Plymouth Fury, 1960 Desoto... Any Chrysler, Dodge, Plymouth Hardtop Station wagon from 1960 thru 1964
1959 Chevy Nova
1962 Ford Falcon
1963 Vette coupe split window
1964 Fairlane hardtop
1964 Buick Rivera
The last two.
Overblown, vague thread title. I only mention in light of the ridiculous insular hatred as posted. When one thinks early '60's beauty, one does not first think of USA.
In this era, first for fun, perhaps. True beauty has already been mentioned, and howled down ( for being un- American).
Read the thread title. Bracing for more macho charm & hideous Mopars
First Corvair sedan
First Falcon sedan
I've already mentioned Mustang. #1?
Honourable mentions to the little Rambler, especially in light of what they had to work with- and; GT Hawk Stude- As for Avanti?- great fun & appeal (assymetry & detail forms), but held back by it's underpinnings. A slicked-off version (ala 'Stupidbaker') may get close.
A primered 63 Wartberg is my dream car....
The beauty of the clean lines of the early 60's T-birds. The best looking birds of them all (in my book).
61 bubble top
62 Impala SS
1960 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham. By far the best looking Cadillac of the 60's and a custom at the same time.
