1961-64 Chevrolet Impala/SS: "Ride, Room and Zoom"
After some close sales races in the Fifties, Chevy handily beat Ford in 1960 and took 25 percent of the new-car market to boot. Chevy soon upped that to 30 percent and remained decisively in the lead. These records came largely via the strength of the big Chevys- the Impala and the SS-as B.T. Van Kirk relates.

The Pontiac Six bowed in 1926 as Oakland's companion make, but it was so successful that its parent was dropped in 1931. An Eight and independent front suspension debuted for 1933, the "Turret Top" and "Silver Streaks" for '35. In 1937, Pontiac offered one of the prettiest soft top sedans to grace the American road.

1961 Dodge Polara D-500 Convertible
For 1961 Dodge consolidated its upmarket models into a single Polara series-"the finest of everything Dodge." Wagons aside, the $3252 soft top was the costliest model offered. Some critics berated the styling-the reverse-slant fins in particular-but everyone loved the get-up-and-go of the optional 325-bhp D-500 V-8.
