Muscle Cars

Index of 1960s American muscle cars

Muscle cars continue to linger on a plateau, recording no move greater than 1% in either direction over the past 16 months. This latest period saw no change, although the 1968 Yenko Camaro did notch an 11% jump on the strength of some high-quality sales. The model, however, is unchanged in value over the past three years, only just now regaining lost ground.

While there is still strong demand for this all-American class of cars, there are so many options available to buyers that values have largely been unfazed. It will take a renewed buying spree by Baby Boomers, fueled by strong economic news at home, to give prices a sustained boost. Otherwise, the plateau will grow longer.
