Description



About the Book



Chrysler unleashed the hemi in 1951, redefining performance. Featuring cars from the Brothers' Collection, The Art of Mopar: Chrysler, Dodge, and Plymouth Muscle Cars celebrates Chrysler muscle in studio portraits.



Book Synopsis



The Art of Mopar: Chrysler, Dodge, and Plymouth Muscle Cars is the ultimate portrayal of history's ultimate muscle cars. This is the ultimate visual history of greatest muscle cars.

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.



Review Quotes




"The history Glatch does recount, however, does strike a nice balance between succinct and to-the-point; yet detailed, with period anecdotes. The writing carries you along, but it's hard for it to compete for your attention with the art adjacent to it."--AutoFocus.ca

"This 224-page hardcover is a thing of beauty and a solid effort from start to finish, and it represents a bargain for the price."--Hemmings Muscle Machines
