Muscle Cars

Index of 1960s American muscle cars

As a group, American muscle cars were stable this month, but there were a few standouts that show expertly presented “halo” models are still on collectors’ short lists. In particular, the Shelby GT500 KR convertible surged forward by a massive 21 percent, and Yenko Camaros bumped 14 percent. Both models have long been regarded as some of the most desirable cars of their class and these increases demonstrate their enduring appeal.

Outside of these large moves, little else happened, continuing two years during which this index has moved minimally. All things considered these cars have proven to be a great place to find fun for free if not necessarily for profit.
