7 of the most important American cars ever

1908 Ford Model T: Produced for 19 years and with 15 million units built, the Ford Model T holds the distinction of being one of the best-selling cars globally. Remarkably, its price dropped from $825 in 1909 to just $260 in 1925.

1932 Ford Three Window Coupe: Revered among hot rodders for customization, the 1932 Ford is especially sought after in its rarer three-window coupe variant, known for its clean lines and iconic design.

1935 Chevrolet Carryall Suburban: Emerging after the Great Depression, the 1935 Carryall Suburban marked the debut of the Suburban nameplate by Chevrolet.

1941 Willys MB Jeep: Synonymous with off-road vehicles, the Willys MB Jeep was born out of the urgent demand during World War II for lightweight utility vehicles.

1953 Chevrolet C1 Corvette: Introduced to compete with sports cars like the Nash Healey, the 1953 C1 Corvette was rushed to production, featuring a fibreglass body.

1955 Ford Thunderbird: Distinct from the Corvette, the 1955 Thunderbird created the American 'personal luxury car' segment, emphasizing comfort, convenience, powerful V-8 engines, and high-standard equipment.

1955 Chrysler C 300: Despite its unassuming appearance, the Chrysler C-300 was built for competition, with a 300 horsepower 331-cubic inch Hemi V-8 engine. It was created for NASCAR homologation purposes.
