Index of 1960s American muscle cars
It has been nearly three years since Hagerty’s Muscle Car Index recorded more than a one percent swing, showing this group to be as steady as they come. And it isn’t as though an uptick in one car is balancing out a slip by another. Instead, most cars aren’t moving and the ones that are have only been changing by negligible amounts.
Given the recent revival of American muscle among contemporary models, time will tell if enthusiasts will opt to spend their money on a 5-year-old car with twice the horsepower of a 50-year-old car, or if the popularity of the modern models will only help to build the awareness of their progenitors.
The Hagerty Price Guide Index of American Muscle Cars is a stock market style index that averages the values of the rarest and most sought-after muscle cars. The list below shows the cars that make up the index, while the graph to the left shows this index’s average value over the years. Values are for #2 condition, or “excellent” cars.
