From lifelong car enthusiast and photographer Mike Mueller comes the most expansive overview of Chrysler Corporation’s muscle cars ever published. It’s no secret that Dodge and Plymouth have been responsible for some of history’s most iconic muscle cars— a resume including the immortal Road Runner, Dodge Daytona, Hemi ’Cuda, Challenger T/A, Charger, Super Bee, Super Bird, and GTX. These cars, often referred to as “Mopars” (short for “Motor Parts,” Chrysler’s parts division), defined the golden age of the American muscle car. They earned the “Motor” part of the Mopar name by housing the most robust engines of the period: legendary power plants like the original Firepower Hemi, the Max Wedge, the 440 Super Commando, and the famed Street Hemi. Even their small V8s, like the 340 LA-series engine that powered the AAR ’Cuda, are the stuff of motorhead folklore. In The Complete Book of Classic Dodge and Plymouth Muscle, they’re all here: every car and every engine from the classic era. This gorgeously illustrated work takes readers through the fifty-plus-year history of Mopar performance, from the Hemi-powered 300 Series through the last cars produced before rising gas prices, tightened emissions, and outrageous insurance rates brought the curtain down on American muscle car production. Author/photographer Mike Mueller offers an in-depth look at the specialty driving machines that have made Mopar performance an enduring part of American automotive culture for over half a century. With extensive details, specs, and spectacular photographs, Mueller’s book stands alone as the ultimate resource on America’s muscle cars.
DIVIt was 1900 when Horace and John Dodge founded the Dodge Brothers Company, in a machine shop in Detroit, Michigan. The high-quality components they produced advanced the dawn of the American automotive industry, appearing in the famous Curved Dash Olds and Henry Ford’s Model A. Soon, the brothers became the exclusive supplier to Ford, a position they would hold for over a decade before striking on their own in 1913 to produce their first car a year later./divDIV /divDIVIn Dodge 100 Years, renowned automotive journalist Matt DeLorenzo provides an unrivaled chronicle of Dodge throughout the past century. Starting with the company’s modest beginnings in the 1900s, DeLorenzo recounts the brothers’ decision to venture into full auto manufacturing, their untimely deaths in 1920, and the company’s purchase by Chrysler in 1928. The book’s rich history also tells the tale of Dodge’s role in the “arsenal of democracy” during World War II and its iconic lineup during the late 1950s. The Dodge story is not without its struggles, though: while the division played a key part in the muscle-car wars of the 1960s and early ’70s, the oil crisis of 1973 took its toll on Dodge and Chrysler as other manufacturers moved toward more efficient models. But under the strong leadership of Lee Iacocca from 1979 onward, Dodge reasserted itself with such vehicles as the K-car and the Caravan minivan. The Dodge story wouldn’t be complete without speaking to its iconic performance cars like the Viper, Challenger, and Charger, as well as what’s in store for its future as indicated by the innovative Dart. Dodge 100 Years is more than a tale of classic American perseverance; it is a celebration of one of America’s most beloved and enduring automotive brands./div
The history of Chrysler Corporation is, in many ways, a history of a company floundering from one financial crisis to the next. While that has given shareholders fits for nearly a century, it has also motivated the Pentastar company to create some of the most outrageous, and collectible, cars ever built in the United States. From the moment Chrysler unleashed the Firepower hemi V-8 engine on the world for the 1951 model year, they had been cranking out the most powerful engines on the market. Because the company pioneered the use of lightweight unibody technology, it had the stiffest, lightest bodies in which to put those most powerful engines, and that is the basic muscle-car formula: add one powerful engine to one light car. When the muscle car era exploded onto the scene, Chrysler unleashed the mighty Mopar muscle cars, the Dodges and Plymouths that defined the era. Fabled nameplates like Charger, Road Runner, Super Bee, 'Cuda, and Challenger defined the era and rank among the most valuable collector cars ever produced by an American automaker. Featuring cars from the incomparable Brothers' Collection, The Art of Mopar: Chrysler, Dodge, and Plymouth Muscle Cars celebrates these cars in studio portraits using the light-painting process perfected by Tom Loeser. It is the ultimate portrayal of the ultimate muscle cars.
From the early 1960s through the mid-1970s, Dodge and Plymouth supercars and ponycars defined "ultimate performance" on the street, drag strips, and NASCAR's high-speed tracks. Mopar: The Performance Years provides detailed specs, driving impressions, technical data, and fantastic period photos of the Chrysler Corporation's greatest muscle cars. The books were published originally as part of the Quicksilver Supercar Series. Out of print for more than two decades, original editions of the books are coveted by collectors and rarely come up for sale. Not content to let collectors have all the fun, we've brought them back to provide a unique window into muscle car history. For musclecar fans, each page in Mopar: The Performance Years is like finding another present under the Christmas tree. Featured cars include: Challenger, Charger, Barracuda, Road Runner, Daytona, and Dart; you'll also find coverage of unique cars and racers like the Little Red Wagon, Trans-Am Challenger, the Golden Commandos, the Ramchargers, Richard Petty, Sox & Martin, A.J. Foyt, and Sam Posey. And, of course, there's wealth of information on Mopar's famous engines, from the Hemi to the Wedge and beyond.
