Italian luxury car manufacturer Alfa Romeo has a worldwide reputation for producing some of history’s most beautiful and powerful cars, and its 1962 Giulia model is one of their most stunning. The Type 105, produced between 1962 and 1978, was a four-door executive car with a compact and sporty look.
It’s practical size and a powerful four-cylinder engine made it an instant favorite. These small little sedans were known for their easy handling and unexpectedly powerful acceleration speed of up to 106 mph, and it could reach from 0 to 62 mph in under 12 seconds.
1964 Ferrari 275 GTB
Ferrari needs no introduction, whether you're a car enthusiast or not, but their exclusive 275 GTB series certainly deserves one. Between 1964 and 1968, Ferrari produced their 275 series, which were front-engined V12-powered, two-seater automobiles with spider and coupé bodies designed by Pininfarina.
The 275 series were the first commercially available Ferraris with a transaxle and independent rear suspension. The 275 GTB was ranked as No. 3 on Motor Trend Classic's 'Greatest Ferraris of All Time', and No. 7 on Sports Car International's 'Top Sports Cars of the 1960s'.
1967 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale
Another beauty produced by the Alfa Romeo empire was their 33 Stradale, manufactured from 1967 to 1969. With only 18 units ever produced, the 33 Stradale was one of the world's first supercars, and the fastest publicly available car for the standing kilometre when it first came out.
This gorgeous, curvy sports car has a tiny 2.0-liter V8 engine that reaches nearly 10,000 RPM, making a unique and intoxicating noise that is bound to make any car enthusiast fall to their knees. Not to mention its impressive 227 horsepower.
1966 Ford GT40
Perhaps one of the most legendary cars on this list, the famous Ford GT40 was specifically built to compete against Ferrari at the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans race. The GT40 model is known around the world for being the Ford Motor Company's first high-performance endurance racing car, and its legacy lives to this day.
With custom-built Ford V8 engines, this unique model was nothing short of incredible. The Ford GT40 competed in the Le Mans race from 1966 to 1969, and won four consecutive times, including an unprecedented 1-2-3 finish in 1966, its first year competing against the Italian racing beast: Ferrari.
1962 Ford Galaxie 500
The Ford Galaxie 500 was a model built by Ford between 1959 and 1974. The name 'Galaxie' was used as a marketing strategy for Ford's cars produced between 1958 and 1962, since there was a nationwide excitement about the Space Race. The "500" or "500/XL" numbers were used to mark the higher series.
Designed as a competitor to the famous Chevrolet Impala, the Ford Galaxie 500 had plush interiors, a chrome trim, and additional luxury features that really made the model stand out. The 1962 model was a four-door sedan that had a "Mileage Maker" 6-cylinder base engine and a sportier-looking body that didn't include the tailfins that were present in previous models.
