About This Article

Automaking reached stunning new heights in the 1960s. No longer were cars merely utilitarian machines that served to take someone from Point A to Point B or lug junk around a farmstead. In the '50s, automakers started experimenting with designs that were artistic and beautiful, and by the 1960s, there were no holds barred. This was the decade that gave rise to the idea of the personal luxury car, when muscle cars came into their own and when pony cars rolled off the lines to the streets, mixing style and performance like nothing else. 

This was the decade of the Mustang, the Corvette, the GTO and the Barracuda. Anyone who considers themselves to be a serious fan of automotive history has a favorite car from the '60s and probably wishes they could get behind the wheel of one or two as well, if only for a test drive. 

With so many beautiful cars to choose from, it's probably hard to pick just one that stands out — maybe even impossible. Luckily, you don't need to pick only one. We have a full 25 of the most beautiful cars of the decade here for you to check out. Now take a look and see which one you think is the best! Don't forget to tell us how we did!
