Classic muscle cars coming to the World of Speed
The World of Speed will open an exhibit featuring 15 classic muscle cars on April 6.
The American Muscle Cars exhibit will feature five cars each produced by Ford, General Motors and Mopar/AMC in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Especially rare cars include a 1969 Ford Talledega, a 1969 Yenko Camaro, and a 1969 Hurst SC/Rambler. A 1970 Hemi 'Cuda Convertible valued at $3 million will also be on display.
"While I am a huge fan of all our exhibits, this one in particular really has me pumped," says World of Speed curator Ron Huegli. "We have curated some of the rarest, most iconic muscle cars around and are thrilled to have them all in one place for visitors to enjoy. This exhibit will bring back some fond memories for our guests — it certainly does for me!"
The cars will be on display through December. Every three months, a new version of one of the classic cars will be featured on the turntable in the exhibition area, allowing visitors to compare the original and new models side-by-side.
The exhibit marks the second major reset of the museum's main gallery and will replace the current exhibit — Heroes and History — which featured 33 Indy cars from nine eras, honoring the 100th running of the Indy 500.
The World of Speed is an interactive motorsports museum located at 27490 S.W. 95th Ave. in Wilsonville. For more information, visit www.worldofspeed.org.
