Just as the 1960s were years of radical change, the cars of the decade were a monumental departure from anything that came before. Suddenly, legit performance was available to nearly everyone and styling was refined to such a degree that today’s car designers still draw inspiration from their grandfathers’ rides.
This list could go on forever, but there can only be 10 very best cars of the 1960s. Here you go.
10. Mini Cooper
The Mini defined the 1960s as much as any car on this list. It’s tiny and economical, but more fun than you could realistically fit into the back of one. The Mini is probably the only car that could’ve possibly stolen the spotlight off the Miura’s classic opening scene in the Italian Job.
9. Aston Martin DB5
The DB5 is fast and luxurious, and if you were taking a road trip from London to Monaco you couldn’t have picked a better car. Especially if you had the world’s most notorious criminals and all of SPECTRE out to kill you.
