What year did car companies come out with muscle cars?

What year did Chevy first start making Camaro, what year did ford start making Mustangs and when did dodge first start making chargers?

Camaro - first model year was 1967.

Mustang - first model year was 1965.

Charger - first model year was 1966.

Mustang, Camaro, and Charger and not muscle cars.

Muscle cars came in around 1962-3 when Pontiac dump a 421 into Catalina and Tempest and Dodge dump a 413 into their Darts. Chevy had their 409 in the Impala in 1962.

Late 50's Early 60's (corvette was probably the starting point - late 50's) 1963-64 Mustangs came out and Camaro followed shorthly there after DeLorean took the Pontiac GTO to production in 1964. Details and exact date can be found here: http://www.zeroto60times.com/2013/01/lis...

The 1964 GTO is regarded as the first muscle car.

The Chevrolet Corvette came out in 1953. In my opinion that was the first muscle car.

Why not Wikipedia it?

Hi American cars have been muscle cars as soon as they had V8 engines.
