Apollo Motors was founded in 1949 with the promise of delivering fine American automobiles to hard-working, hard-playing Americans at affordable prices.
The company had moderate success from its founding until 1966, where it shot into the spotlight like a rocket with the Fiasco, the company’s first foray into the “muscle car” phenomenon. The final incarnation of the original Fiasco was the 457 c.i. Fiasco GTO, released in 1969, which received rave reviews and was competitive in the largest American race circuits.
Sadly, the oil crisis had its icy grip on the muscle car’s throat by 1971, and Apollo wisely ceased production of the Fiasco, lest it become corrupted and shamble on as some low-displacement husk.
