  • Favorite bodystyle ever?

    I love so many cars that it's always hard for me to name a single favorite bodystyle. I also find myself liking certain examples of year/make/model and not others. For example, I loved the look of MY 62 Biscayne, but I don't crave all 62 Chevys.

    When pressed, I'll claim the 71 Road Runner as my favorite style, but the '69 Sportsroof Mustang and '59 Chevy are also up there.

    How about you?

    I can't name one, but I'm lucky that I own one of my favorites.

          I cant even name a favorite brand, yet alone a single car. Iam pretty happy with my 64 GTO, and my 56 olds. really like 70 torino sports roofs. I like the 71 road runners too, but have a soft spot for the basterdized 73s . plus lately Ive been jonesing for a 65 riveria

                the ugly plymouth savoy is way up high...alongside the model A.

                my Nova is down about chest height...but it's much better than anything built since 1988.

                  There are at least a dozen that I really like of all different makes. My favorite though is the '70/'71 Montego/Cyclone, and I remember the day that it became so. The first stock car race my dad ever took me to was the 1972 Miller Highlife 500 at Ontario Motor Speedway, I was 8 years old. A.J. Foyt won the race in the Wood Brother's Mercury, I thought it was the coolest looking car! I've loved them ever since.

                    While my Favorites come from 68-70 B body Mopars, I really like alot of GM cars just as well alot of AMC's
                    and even a few Ford body styles.

                        Would have to be a 1970 Road Runner with an air grabber hood. First car I ever went out to the street races with. I was a dishwasher and the cook had the roadrunner told my dad we were going to the races just didn't tell him where.

                            Maybe not applicable to this thread, but it would have to be the Avanti, followed by the '53 Stude. As I've said before, Raymond Lowey was a GENIUS, and designed them both, as well as the Coke bottle and a bunch of other stuff. Maybe more on topic is the '63 Sport Fury. There's a lightness to the design that few other makers ever achieved. Compare it to a '63 Impala or Galaxie - they look like tugboats when stacked up to the Fury (a speedboat). Then Chrysler ruined it in '64 by adding those big, blumpy tail lights - style is fleeting and easily unbalanced. '65 was better.
