About Stamp

On February 22, 2013, in Daytona Beach, Florida, the Postal Service™ will issue Muscle Cars commemorative First-Class Mail® stamps (Forever® priced at 46 cents) in five designs in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) pane of 20 stamps. The stamp will go on sale nationwide February 22, 2013.

The Muscle Cars stamps celebrate an exciting era in American automotive history. Typically equipped with big, powerful engines, these high-performance vehicles first roared onto our roads in the 1960s. The stamps feature five iconic muscle cars: the 1966 Pontiac GTO, the 1967 Shelby GT-500, the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, the 1970 Plymouth Hemi ‘Cuda, and the 1970 Chevelle SS.

Artist Tom Fritz based his artwork on photographs of the cars, using bright-colored oil paints on hardboard to try to “capture the emotive quality” of each one. Growing up in Southern California, Fritz became familiar with the power of muscle cars and calls these paintings “a projection of my memories of the vehicles.”

Muscle Cars is the third issuance in the America on the Move series. The stamps were designed by art director Carl T. Herrman. The first two issuances in the series were 50s Sporty Cars (2005) and 50s Fins and Chrome (2008).

The Muscle Cars stamps are being issued as Forever® stamps in self-adhesive sheets of 20 (4 of each design).
