Check with Dan the Man, we have been sending him great finds for monthsBeen some time since I saw something actually affordable that was worthy of time and effort to do it ( Dodge / Plymouth) all I have noticed lately is rotted, rusted, stripped out junk and all of it is priced easily 4 times what its worth, even 4 doors.
You're right, but that's changing pretty quickly. Standard A bodies are really starting to command prices now. Even the early cars. They're getting hard to find in good shape now. Heck, in any shape.Factory optioned Muscle Cars are going to command a premium. Standard optioned cars of the era can be had for a lot less and modified.
I think 70 and 71 were really it. The 70 Cuda, the 70 Chevelle, The 70 Mustang. All those cars were really something. Even the Oldsmobiles, Buicks and Pontiacs. The 70 GTO for example, is my favorite body style across the board. Just mean lookin.Muscle cars will always be cool its just that era... the cars looked good made good power were cool and attracted the chics...
Look at anything from 69,then Challenger/Cuda hit the scene in 70 that was the pinnacle of style.
Well sure and I'd venture to guess that's the real reason. But the reason doesn't matter. Values are increasing. Why does it matter WHY?True what you say about regular cars getting pricey Rusty, but that also has something to do with 50 plus years, and related to your screen name, the equivalent to our issues about getting old, but in this case a metal based object age problem, RUST.
That seems to be pretty accurate here as well.Id say $5K and under now may get a rolling shell missing drivetrain and most of the interior maybe not even a title....that's what I see in my area ..you browse based on price but when you open the ad there isn't much there if its real inexpensive and too good to be true on price there usually issues like "lost title"
I traded my last Harley valued at ~$7k for my 74 Swinger slant six car. It was running and registered and came with some good bones. Compared to other trade offers it was a decent trade. I wouldn’t have paid more than $2,000 5 years ago.Id say $5K and under now may get a rolling shell missing drivetrain and most of the interior maybe not even a title....that's what I see in my area ..you browse based on price but when you open the ad there isn't much there if its real inexpensive and too good to be true on price there usually issues like "lost title"
New truck prices are crazy, my 2017 ram stickered for 49K, two weeks ago I was getting the oil changed at the dealership, to kill time, walked around the lot, the same truck but a 2023, sticker price was 102K, WTF my wages have not gone up 50% in 6 years.My wife recently said something like new trucks were 47 K I said try 80K this was after i sepnt some time rebuiling and bushing the rear suspension on my Ford Ranger I said "Most wouldnt do it but its a 4X4 truck you dont junk it because the sprong hangers rusted out..."
