1969 A57 Cuda.... The 383 was available with the Formula S package, but now buyers could also step up to the "'Cuda Performance Package," available with 340, 383 or 440. The 'Cuda 383 Package was coded A57, and included the high-performance drivetrain, heavy-duty suspension and wheels, E70-14 Red Streak tires and dual-exhaust, plus black-out trim and sport tape stripes with engine displacement callouts and a pair of non-functional hood scoops. The 383 could be ordered with the TorqueFlite three-speed automatic or the A833 four-speed manual; Plymouth reportedly built 718 383 Barracudas as the Formula S, and 462 as 'Cuda 383 models.

1973 Buick Gran Sport Stage 1 ...Buick closed out the original muscle car era strong. The GSX didn’t make it past 1972, but the Gran Sport and the Stage 1 engine did. In 1973, the Gran Sport was now on the redesigned “Colonnade” Century, and it was a looker. Four engines were offered, two weak 350s and two 455s. Remember, in 1972 the horsepower ratings went from “gross” to “net” and were down significantly. The first 455 was rated 225 hp, which was healthy for 1973, but the optional Stage 1 version of the engine was rated 270 hp. Buick’s last significant muscle car of the 1970s was available with a Turbo 400 or a Muncie four-speed and the four-speed cars are rare. Only 728 were built in 1973 with the Stage 1 engine and 92 of those with four-speeds. In 1974 production dropped to just 478 Stage 1 cars.

1970 El Camino LS6.....Following well-established practice, the 1970 Chevrolet El Camino was closely based on the Chevelle. The El Camino SS sported the same restyled front end with its domed hood and Blacked-out V-shaped grille, SS454 exterior and interior badging, bright wheel arch moldings, chromed 5-spoke SS wheels, custom vinyl seat trim and special round-faced gauges. More than just an appearance package, the El Camino SS option also included F41 special suspension, dual exhaust and power front disc brakes. The big deal for SS buyers in 1970 was the new 454 CI engine available in either 360 HP LS5 form or the mighty LS6 that offered the highest horsepower rating ever in a production car. Some sources place their build number at just over 500, and documented examples are even rarer.
1961 Corvette XP-796 2+2 ...
If the proportions of this Corvette look a little off, your eyes are not deceiving you! Chevrolet chief Ed Cole ordered a prototype 4-seat Corvette to be built upon a stretched version of the new C2 chassis. Larry Shinoda designed the XP-796 2+2 , of which only one was built, but Chevrolet division chief Bunkie Knudsen was able to ultimately squash the project, when demand for the new C2 body style exceeded expectations.
Three 440+6 cars are known to have been built for 1972"
Few did. It was in 1971 that Plymouth offered the GTX as a separate model for the last time. It was also the last year for the 426 Hemi. For 1972, the GTX would be an option package on a Road Runner with a 440 motor. Chrysler factory materials for the 1972 models printed in spring 1971 indicated that the factory had planned to offer a 440 Six-Barrel motor in the 1972 Road Runner GTX and the Dodge Charger. But for years, most Mopar people had concluded that a factory-built 440 Six-Barrel Mopar was stillborn prior to any 1972 cars being offered to the public.
As of this writing, three 440+6 cars are known to have been built for 1972. One is this E5 Rallye Red Road Runner GTX, another is an E5 Rallye Red Charger Rallye, and the last is a Top Banana Yellow Charger Rallye. (Apparently in 1972, one could own a E5 Rallye Red Charger Rallye, with Rallye wheels and a Rallye dash.) All three were made in August 1971, very early in the production run. After the three known cars were built, the 440+6 motors were canceled for 1972 production.

1970 Side Winder Special..... The 1970 Mustang Sidewinder Special was one of many territory specials created during the first generation of Mustang. While most of the territory specials debuted in the late '60s and were aesthetic packages, the 1970 Sidewinder has the shape of a Boss mustang, and from a distance might be mistaken for one. With information showing only 40 units ordered. Standard Sidewinder features included a 351 4V engine, sportsroof, comp suspension and the Ford automatic transmission known as Cruise-o-Matic. Ford built the vehicles in Dearborn and shipped them to the dealers with the stripe kit packed in the trunk, to be mounted by the dealer’s body men.
With only seven remaining, the Sidewinder Special is without a doubt one of the rarest Mustangs.

Buick GSX Stage II.... Buick’s rare “Stage 2” option , This was a dealer-installed package (known as a "dealer option"), first offered in 1969. It included a cam, headers, intake manifold, high compression forged pistons, hollow pushrods, and some calibration changes to the ignition and carburetor . In 1970(?) the Stage 2 package was designed for the 455 and included special round exhaust port Stage 2 heads, matching Kustom brand headers, a radical cam, high compression forged pistons, Edelbrock B4B aluminum intake, Holley carburetor #4781 850 cfm, and other equipment for racing. Few Stage 2s even exist and Buick only ever factory assembled 1 Stage 2 test unit, it was a factory GSX clone test mule with 4-speed manual transmission used for speed testing. That GSX test mule was equipped with 4.78 gearing and was driven on the streets and tracks on the West Coast. The Stage 2 package's existence was not made public until 1972 when the Stage 2 parts could be ordered in any combination. There is little documentation about any Stage 2 cars that were sold. Three are known to exist and all three of these cars were built as Stage 1 cars at the factory. One was owned by Kenne-Bell a factory backed Buick high performance specialist based in California . The second Stage 2 was known as the Jones-Benisek car. The Jones/Benisek car is known to have been delivered as a Stage 1 car .The Stage 2 hood and scoop was added later . The Stage 2 iron heads were purchased by the owner at a local Buick Dealer. The car had a very successful drag racing career with many wins and some world records also. The third Stage 2 is known as Wiley Coyote and as the Turner car. It was originally owned by Bob Thetford and campaigned as "Wiley Coyote" i
