35 Vintage Photos of People With ’60s Automobiles

The average 1960s cars costs about $2,752, and a gallon of gas was around 31 cents. The 1960s were a time of change: the Civil Rights movement as led by Martin Luther King Jr., the Women’s Movement with its demand for equal rights, Russia beat the US into outer space, Elvis hits the UK, the Beatles hit world big time, the advent of the counterculture when hair grew longer and beards became common and reaching its zenith in August 1969 at Woodstock, and later in the decade, man set foot on the moon.

The 1960s automobiles belonged to a distinct decade of automobile history with the advent of economy, muscle and pony cars. The 1960s saw the American automobile industry consolidating into the Big Three: General Motors, FordChrysler and American Motors. These firms not only dominated the domestic market with the sales of the 1960s cars, but the global market as well. In 1960, American companies built 93 percent of the autos sold in the United States and 48 percent of world .

In the mid 1950s, however, led by Volkswagen and soon followed by Fiat, Renault, Datsun (Nissan), and Hillman, imports began to nibble their way into the rich American market. The growing presence of imports disturbed Detroit, and the Big Three responded with their own small 1960s cars. GM produced the Corvair, Ford the Falcon, and Chrysler the Valiant.
