Non OEM color on a CTS-V, but it looks badass.

Maybe my favorite of the muscle car era Plymouths--the '71 Road Runner and GTX.  Love the rounded fuselage styling and loop front bumper.

This is probably sinfularly the most under rated bodystyle of any post WW 2 American car.

Another early 70s muscle car I love is the '72 Gran Torino Sport..love the huge fastback roofline and the way the top of the door kicks up...'73 had the same body, but got a huge front bumper and smaller grille.'

I think there is a lot to like about the GM Colonnade A-bodies, esp. the '73 coupes w/ the integrated rear bumpers...even with the huge front bumpers on most...

Interesting engeneering, and they made it look factory. See below for a badass Ford Falcoln.

For a '60s rear end, this has to take the cake ::

Look at the bumper fitment & contours vs. Ford's. Plus you have the trick invisible taillights. ;)

 

RE the Galaxie's tail end, I'd have to endorse the '61-63 Thunderbird's take over the Galaxie's.

Ford in the 60's built some amazing cars. The 80's, not so much, and the 90's, almost none at all.

I will take the Dash of the 63 with the red seats of the 62. 

I hate white seats as they show all the dirt and over time become more grey than white. White is one of the most terrible interior colors for an Auto. The 62 dash has way too much chrome in comparison to the 63 which I like way better and the over all layout is just awesome I think.

Pontiac's "vegan leather" they used in the '60s was utterly fantastic stuff. Wore like iron. I picked up a set of white '66 buckets from a junkyard car (had just came in) in '95, cleaned them with vinegar and they looked great & sold like hotcakes.
