Normally, a discussion of muscle in Philadelphia forms the image of young dudes hanging out on the corner dressed in bleached undershirts while doo-wop plays in the background. Not this time. The Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum is opening an exhibition on American Muscle, U.S.-built performance cars, beginning June 29 and running through July 15.
Some of these cars used to slug it out on Philly thoroughfares like Island Avenue and Roosevelt Boulevard, but given Simeone’s usual level of thoughtfulness when it comes to automotive history and performance cars, earlier examples such as the Hudson Hornet will be on display.
Among the traditional American muscle cars from the 1960s and 1970s in the exhibit will be a Plymouth Superbird, Plymouth AAR ‘Cuda, Shelby G.T.500KR and Hurst/Olds with 455 power. Adding will be holdings from the collections of LRA Enterprises, the muscle restoration specialist and dealer from Bristol, Pennsylvania, and George Kerbeck, the dealer and collector from Palmyra, New Jersey, who sells everything from Corvettes to Lamborghinis and Bentleys. Best of all, you can view the Simeone collection’s normal fare, which is a trove of prized sports racers from a variety of eras. For more information, visit SimeoneMuseum.org.
