The 12 muscle cars taking over AutoHunter’s auction docket

There’s no denying muscle cars are among the most popular segments in the collector car market, and with some of the most enthusiastic collectors.

And in just this last year, the market has seen a significant spike in growth. According to Hagerty, this rise was propelled in part by Hemi Mopars, specifically the Hemi Cuda convertibles that increased in value by 79 percent. GM’s 1970 Buick GS455 convertibles also were subject to a 20 percent spike in value, nearly matching the 52 percent jump by 1964 Impala SS 409 convertibles.

Muscle cars that had remained steady over the past few years also were subject to increased value — the 1967-69 Chevrolet Camaro SS gained 14 percent on average and the 1968-67 Dodge Charger R/T values ​​were up 28 percent.

“Such broad gains in value like this have not been seen since before the 2008 crash,” Hagerty’s Greg Ingold said. “All this despite previous fears of the market weakening as younger enthusiasts begin to take over the market.

“This goes to show that muscle cars are still popular and sought after as ever. What the future holds remains to be seen, but for the moment, this triumphant comeback is certainly going to be welcome news to muscle car owners everywhere.”

To celebrate this growth, AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com launches its first Muscle Car Week – a promotion in which 12 muscle cars take over the docket with auctions beginning Tuesday, October 26 and ending Tuesday, November 2.

Here are the 12 high-performing vehicles included in AutoHunter’s Muscle Car Week, with descriptions from the auction house:
