Muscle Car Art has been around since the dawn of the first vehicles. Way before everything was drawn on a computer, hand drawn ideas were the norm. Possibly millions of sketches from rough ideas to final designs lurk in car company archives, but there are also thousands of pieces out there produced by independent artists ranging from interpretations of existing designs to wild new concepts.
It’s not hard to see why muscle cars are the inspiration for such artistic outlets. It’s not just sleek lines like other performance cars possess. Mention the word muscle car and designs range from sleek to muscular and always looking powerful, along with highlighting the artist’s expertise. Below are just a few we have selected that could easily take pride of place on anybody’s wall.
Henk Holsheimer 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500
This charcoal drawing can be found on Henk’s website along with other vehicle images. Photo realistic and one of the finest and most beautiful images of a Mustang.
Muscle Cars 1960-1974 by ADCF Design
We featured this collection of muscle car images in the early days of our website. It is a collection of the most famous muscle cars produced by ADCF Design originally as a poster and a limited edition book. It’s a shame the website isn’t around anymore for you to purchase one of these posters, but there is a gallery link on Behance if you want to check out the images more closely. it’s not just great artwork, but a compendium of all the great muscle cars done as side shots. For any muscle car fan its a great thing to hang on your wall if you can get hold of a copy somewhere.

There’s nothing like classic photography when it comes to great images of muscle cars. AmericanMuscle over at Deviant Art.com manages to bring out the best in any design as you can see here with this 1971 Plymouth Satellite. When it comes to fantastic photography you’re really spoilt for choice when you wade through the endless images on deviantART.
Mustang by ractapopulous
Being more abstract or different with car art always stands out. This seems to be case with this Mustang produced by ractapopulous. It’s a sort of splatter image of a Mustang which makes for a great art piece. You can even download it under CC0 Creative Commons for use if you visit the link at pixabay.com.
