Chrysler entered the pony-car market with the capable but unlovely Barracuda in the early 1960s. The car was refined over the years, becoming a true muscle car, and a rather handsome one at that, but it wasn’t until the advent of the E-body pony cars from 1970-1974—Barracudas, the Dodge Challenger, and Plymouth ‘Cuda—that Chrysler became a true player in the pony-car market. This book tells the story of Chrysler’s pony car series, from the advent of the original Barracuda in 1964 to the final days of the smog-motored Challengers and ‘Cudas of the mid-1970s, focusing on the series’ heyday in the early 1970s.

When the Camaro was introduced in 1967 as an answer to the wildly popular Mustang and the "pony car" category it created, the Chevrolet response proved to be very popular in its own right. Of course, every successful act needs an encore, and what followed was the second-generation Camaro, produced from early 1970 until 1981. The new model was a dramatic departure from its predecessor, with a body style and features that evolved steadily over its 12-year production run. From the early years featuring LT1 engines, a multitude of performance packages and dramatic euro styling, to the later years when comfort replaced performance in many aspects, the second-generation Camaro remains extremely popular today. Whether you have an SS, Z/28, Rally Sport, Type LT, Sport Coupe, or Berlinetta, The Definitive Camaro Guide: 1970-1981 showcases the various cosmetic, interior, powertrain, and chassis changes that occurred on all models through the years. Heavily illustrated, the book features more than 450 images detailing the correct parts and accessories your Camaro had when new. Author Jason Scott is an expert on this marque. This guide will help enthusiasts authentically restore their second-generation Camaro. After stumbling out of the gate with a late-model-year release, the second-generation Camaro outsold its predecessor two to one. With the prices of first-generation Camaros escalating rapidly, the second-generation cars have become very popular. More important, little literature can be found in the market to help owners of second-generation Camaros correctly identify parts and components for their cars. This benchmark book will be a must-have for 1970-1981 Camaro owners wanting to correctly bring their car back to original specification.

The new Dodge Charger, Challenger, and other LX-platform cars bring modern V-8 performance to unparalleled heights, and the new Challenger and Charger Hellcats are the most powerful American production cars today. The outrageous performance and audacious styling has earned a large and dedicated following. However, you can tune and modify the Chrysler 300, Dodge Magnum, Charger, and Challenger for more performance, and for many owners, fast is not fast enough. In the pursuit of a higher-performing LX-platform car, former Mopar Muscle editor Randy Bolig has created this book to show you how to extract ultimate performance from these cars. Chrysler has built more than one million Chargers, Challengers, and other full-size-platform cars starting with the Dodge Magnum and Chrysler 300. These cars offer competent handling, braking, and suspension performance, but they can be made much better through a set of targeted upgrades using better aftermarket equipment. Bolig gives you a comprehensive guide to the cars and engines. He details the features, benefits, and drawbacks of each package or set of upgrades, so you select the best modification for your car, application, and budget. He also covers basic to extreme modifications for the R/T and SRT8 models with the 5.7-, 6.1-, and 6.4-liter Hemi engines. Guidance for installing heads, rotating assemblies, ignition upgrades, higher-performance injectors, and many other parts are provided. But, this book doesn't just discuss performance; it shows you how to do it with comprehensive, step-by-step product installs for a cat-back exhaust system, hand-held ignition tuner, cold-air intake, and supercharger. If you have been searching for the best performance package to make your Charger, Challenger, or full-size Chrysler car stand out from the crowd, you need this book. It has the latest information, so you can learn how to install all the products and get your car back out on the road.
