Super Stock takes a look at what was the most popular class of drag racing - factory Super Stock. It traces the evolution of the cars, the engines, the rules, the personalities, and many of the teams, from its beginnings in the mid-1950s through to the 1960s and the era of the Super Stock 409s, Ramchargers, 421 Pontiacs, and 406 Fords. This was a time when Ford, Chrysler, and General Motors competed on a weekly basis at local drag strips throughout the country, and the saying ...win on Sunday, sell on Monday... had real significance in the marketplace. This is also the period that saw emergence of the term musclecar and the production of a whole class of American automobiles - which are now the most sought after by collectors, restorers, and performance enthusiasts.

8 1/2 x 11, 100 color photos, 200 b/w photos In many ways, drag racing spawned the muscle car era of the '60s. Super Stock drag racing was huge in the early '60s, and the factories encouraged their teams' success by building high-power, lightweight cars that'd be sure hits at the drags. Then in '64, Pontiac introduced the GTO, with the classic "small car, big engine" formula that hot rodders had been using for years. Other manufacturers responded with their own pony cars and muscle cars, and for nearly 10 years, muscle cars ruled the drags. Quarter Mile Muscle covers the development and success of the muscle cars at the drags in all classes, from Super Stock to the early muscle car-based funny cars. Special attention is paid to low-production factory cars that were intended specifically for the drags - cars like the COPO Camaros, Ford Thunderbolts, and the dealer-built specials from Yenko, Motion, and others.

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.
