These cars, often referred to as aMoparsa (short for aMotor Parts, a Chrysleras parts division), defined the golden age of the American muscle car. They earned the aMotora part of the Mopar name by housing the most robust engines of the period: legendary power plants like the original Firepower Hemi, the Max Wedge, the 440 Super Commando, and the famed Street Hemi. Even their small V8s, like the 340 LA-series engine that powered the AAR aCuda, are the stuff of motorhead folklore. In The Complete Book of Classic Dodge and Plymouth Muscle, theyare all here: every car and every engine from the classic era. This gorgeously illustrated work takes readers through the fifty-plus-year history of Mopar performance, from the Hemi-powered 300 Series through the last cars produced before rising gas prices, tightened emissions, and outrageous insurance rates brought the curtain down on American muscle car production.
