B-bodies were the most muscular of the Mopar
cars in the 60s and early 70s. They ruled the
Super Stock circuit of NHRA in the 60s. I
currently drag race a car called
Big Red Ram in a class called Nostalgia
Super Stock, where our cars have most of the
same rules as they did from 1960 to 1967 -- and
the Mopar B-Bodies still rules.
Musclecar era effectively ended in 1971, but
Mopar stayed with the same B-Body styling
through 1974. In 1975, the B-Bodies were
completely redesigned -- with the most
recognized one being the new Chrysler Cordoba.
Since the most Mopar people focus on the
B-bodies of 1971 and earlier -- the 1975 to 1979
B-Bodies have been nicknamed "The Forgotten
B-Bodies". They include the previously mentioned
Cordoba (aka Doba), Coronet, Monaco (not Monaco
Brougham, which is a C-Body), Sport Fury (but
not the larger Fury), and the most interesting
Forgotten B-Body -- the Magnum.
