Classic Muscle Cars: The Best Classic Vehicles To Own

By  |

The classic vehicle market can have its ups and downs as much as the stock market, but it seems over the past 12 months classic muscle cars have been buoyant across the range.

The rare optioned vehicles from the late 60s and early 70s seem to always remain a priority, but 70s and 80s vehicles are also steadily climbing in price.

If you check such online valuation tools such as Hagerty’s, you will see most makes and models from the classic era of muscle cars, the graphs have started to climb or at least stay buoyant for the last 12 months.

Some comments online stated that the buoyancy of the market for muscle cars is from the simplicity of the design compared to today’s vehicles and that manufacturers are making modern versions such as the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger, which are helping the market immensely.
For example, a 1966 Shelby GT350 which are not as valuable as the 1965 model can be bought for less than $140,000. Not a small amount of money, but check the prices in a few years and you may be kicking yourself.

Mustangs are arguably some of the most popular pony/muscle cars out there. 1964 to 1968 Mustangs are hot property and are only going to go up in value.

The Mopar Brigade of Dodge and Plymouth with such models as the Dodge Charger, Dodge Challenger, Plymouth Road Runner and Superbird are all highly collectable, especially with rare options. 1968 to 1971 models are the most desirable.

Although the most common makes are usually quoted, keep an eye out for such makes and models such as 70s Pontiacs – GTO and Trans AMs, Chevrolet Camaros and even move into the 80s with Ford Fox body Mustangs.
Mercury, Oldsmobile and AMC have their collectable models, such as the AMC Rebel the machine, Mercury Cougar and the Oldsmobile 442, but sticking with the most obvious makes and models will give you the best chance of a price rise.

The muscle car market seems like it has no signs of slowing down, so check out the obvious sources online to get an idea of pricing, such as eBay and research their current valuations with the Hagerty valuation tool.
If you’re thinking of buying a classic muscle car, now is possible the time to do it.
