Current Trends in Classic Cars, Classic Cars, and More Classic Cars!

I spend a lot of time delving into classic car trends and searching for information on what’s popular right now while trying to find ideas for this site. After all, I want to share information that car enthusiasts are interested in and searching for on the internet. So, digging through a lot of data kind of gives me some insight into what’s popular right now, and what’s likely to trend upward or downward in popularity next.

Brief Summary of Trends in the Classic Car Market

  • The market, as a whole, is only a fraction of what it was, say, ten years ago, though the prices are sky high on a lot of classic car types due largely to the reality TV effect.
  • Classic trucks are uptrending right now.
  • Classic cars (in general) are due to uptrend over the next four years or so.
  • Sports cars run in close correlation to classic cars (in general), and are due to uptrend over the next few years.
  • Muscle cars are also due to uptrend, though not quite as soon as classic cars and sports cars.
  • Rat rods are the unlucky group as far as trends, because they are just starting to downtrend, though you can expect them to remain popular with those who love them for several more years before the downtrend becomes extreme.

Browsing Through eBay Classic Cars to Find the Rare Gems

I find it so interesting browsing through the selection of eBay classic cars. The prices and conditions are all over the place, and of course, the few really great deals that land on the site get bid up pretty quickly. It’s a good idea to keep the trends mentioned above in mind if you’re searching for classic cars to hold onto for investment value or to sell quickly. If you’re just looking for a nostalgic ride that makes you happy, then your personal preferences are a key factor. Also, note the condition and location of classic cars you find on eBay, because repairs and the cost of transporting classic cars across the country can add up to a chunk of money, so to speak.

6 Reasons to Add Classic Cars and Real Estate to Your Investment Portfolio

Classic cars and real estate… two investments you can enjoy while they go up in value if you choose carefully and maintain them well.

Albuquerque Real Estate and Classic Cars

It’s a fairly common saying that your home is an investment (hopefully one you enjoy) and classic cars have the potential to be great investments, too.

So, How Can Real Estate Be Connected to Classic Cars?

I’m going to use Albuquerque real estate as an example for this, though some variation of the idea can be expanded on anywhere in the country…

In an area like Albuquerque, where weather conditions and New Mexico classic car scene provide an abundance of low-rust cars that haven’t seen snow or road salt in winter, there are some things car enthusiasts may want to look for when shopping for real estate – mainly a good place to park their classic cars, of course.

  • Real estate tip #1: One of the first things experts recommend looking at in real estate is location. Some basic tips are to (a) check the crime rate for the neighborhood you’re considering, (b) check out the landscaping at neighboring homes to see if neighbors tend to their lawns, and (c) browse around the neighborhood to see if houses seem t have junk piled around them. (This is kind of linked to the well-maintained lawns, but junk piled around neighboring homes can bring down the value of all properties in the area even if the front lawn is mowed.)
  • Real estate tip #2: If you want to keep your classic car or cars at home, look for a property that either has a decent garage or room to build a garage. If you invest in classic cars, you don’t want to leave them sitting outside, so having a climate controlled garage space is part of keeping your vintage autos in good condition.
  • Real estate tip #3: Look for property that has a security system, or consider having one installed. This makes the home worth more, keeps your family and property safer, and it helps keep insurance costs a bit lower, which is great because it helps offset the cost of the security system.
  • Classic car tip #1: This may seem obvious, but consider the value of the kind of car you like best… Are you looking for a driver that makes you feel like a kid again with everyone turning to look at your car when you drive past? Or, are you looking for a show piece that won’t be driven often or at all? Investment-wise, you may want one that’s not driven much, to keep the mileage low – but if you want one to drive and enjoy – you might look more at the style that gives you the eye-appeal you want over rareness or its price sticker.
  • Classic car tip #2: Check out the production run numbers to find out how many of the model you’re considering were made. This helps you determine how rare – or how not rare – it is.
  • Classic car tip # 3: Get an assessment of the classic car’s condition. Condition is as important with classic cars as location is with real estate. Then, use the condition information to get an accurate estimate of the car’s value.

So, with these few tips in mind, it’s your turn to start dreaming about how great your new-to-you classic car is going to look sitting in front of your house, and how safe it, and your family of course, are going to be in your great new home.

Super Rare 1966 Chevy Impala Wagon Barn Find

Want to see a car that stands out and gets a lot of attention? Check out this 1966 Chevrolet Impala wagon. Chances are pretty good you’ve never seen another ’66 Impala station wagon that’s exactly like this because it was built with an incredibly rare custom configuration. This classic Impala wagon was listed for sale on eBay as of the posting of this article.

A Classic, Original 1966 Chevrolet Impala Station Wagon, and Everything Works (Except the Clock)

This one-owner Impala wagon has only 34,000 original miles on it. Since we’re speaking of original… this car has the original motor (more on that in a minute), original paint, original chrome, the factory tach, the original dash clock, and the original brake shoes.

While the original brake shoes are intact, the braking system has been updated with new brake lines and wheel cylinders.

All the aftermarket additions added by the owner were removed and put back to the original factory specs.

Everything on this car works, except the dash clock (which probably just needs to be cleaned.)

Specs for This ’66 Impala Station Wagon

When ordering this car, the owner wanted a car with the power to pull his race car, a 1957 Chevy.

With a ’57 Chevy weighing in around 3,300 pounds, that meant he needed a wagon with some hefty power.

So, he ordered this 1966 Chevy Impala wagon with the factory Corvette driveline.

This six passenger car has a 427 cid, 390 horsepower engine, a 4-speed transmission, and a factory 12-bolt rear end.

The Condition of This ’66 Chevy Impala Wagon

This Impala station wagon was parked in a building in Cleveland in 1980, where it sat all these years until discovered by Jim of Jim’s Rare Barn Finds.

This car is solid inside and out, plus according to the listing it sounds, runs, and shifts great.

There are a few rust spots on the original Marina Blue paint from a leak in the building where the car was stored.

(The rust spots are pretty light, but you can kind of see them in the video below when the car is being pulled out of the building and into the light.)

Putting the Car Back to Original

If you’re ready to see yourself sliding behind the wheel of this classic Impala wagon, you may want to know about the rest of the things that were done to put it back to original specs.

I won’t detail all of them because you can always visit the eBay listing, but the aftermarket buckets were removed, the factory bench seat was replaced and the towing hitch was removed.

The original paperwork comes came with the car as proof that it’s a real COPO (Central Office Production Order) ’66 Impala wagon with the specifications detailed in the listing and video.

 

The Stories That Go With the Car

Part of the magic of this car is knowing the story of the car’s history and how it ended up being a barn find.

There are a couple of sweet stories about the car that were shared by the previous owner’s daughter in the video above.

One was a story about the only time the car was ever driven in the rain, and another one was about the family sleeping in the car at the races.

I won’t give all the details away since it’s someone else’s story, so if you have time, I highly recommend watching it.

Looking for Cars for Future Episodes

A comment on the YouTube page that houses the video details what to do if you have an old car that’s just sitting around and you would like to have it considered for an episode of Jim’s Rare Barn Finds.

Here’s what you would need to do:

  • Send an email to: kirstservices@gmail.com
  • In that email, include:
    • your name
    • phone number
    • make and model of the car
    • at least one picture of the car
      • (If you don’t include a picture, your submission won’t be considered, so make sure to include that.)

First Generation Ford Mustang Convertible

This iconic and phenomenal pony car from Ford features a 3-speed manual transmission that lets you shift through the gears as you put it through its paces. A lot of drivers prefer a car with a standard transmission for the responsiveness and because, well, it’s just fun to drive a stick.

I couldn’t find any stats on how many 1965 Mustang convertibles were built with the combination of 3-speed tranny, a 200 horsepower engine, and of course a ragtop. I did find that there were 65,633 standard convertible 1965 Ford Mustangs built, according to Mustang Specs.

The Basic Info on This ’65 Mustang Convertible

The Growth of the Model Car Industry

The Growth of the Model Car Industry
By Edmund Brunetti

Model Car: Vintage VW Bus

Over the last few years, model cars have become an ever more popular collectable. There are likely many reasons for this, not the least of which being the fact that racing has also grown in popularity as a sport. In the United States, there is the phenomenon of stock car racing, and in countries like Australia, there is the growth of V8 Supercar racing. This has caused people to want to collect scale models of the cars that their favorite drivers drive. In other sports, one might collect jerseys or cards of specific players; in car racing, people tend to collect scale models of the cars of specific drivers. In either case, a market for collectables has been created, and it is one that is booming.

 

It is not only racing fans who collect scale model cars, however. You can get model cars of your favorite classic or muscle cars, or just about any other car that exists. Someone might just love cars, and because of this, they want to collect models of all of their favorites. There are even specific brands that will cater to specific collectors. If you are into collecting racing car models, then there are a few brands that might interest you. If, on the other hand, you are into collecting classic muscle cars, then you might find that there are different brands that have more to offer. Either way, for the collector, there is always a wide variety of different models available.

 

With the growth of the collectable market, there has also been a rise in the value of many of these scale model cars. Limited edition models are regularly put out, and these are the ones that grab the most attention of those who are collecting in hopes of gaining monetary value. If only a select number of a specific model car has been manufactured, then that specific car will become more and more rare as time passes. Rarity is not a certainty when it comes to value, but the rarer something is, the more likely it is to rise in price if there is a demand for it. This is why many people are now viewing their collections as investments in the future rather than just a simple hobby.

 

No matter what your reason is for collecting cars, it is apparent that the model cars industry is not going away any time soon. There has been a huge growth in the interest in model car collecting over the last few years, and it appears that this growth is going to continue. The smart collectors will likely get involved in this market sooner rather than later, as it is possible that it could hit its peak eventually. Whether you just like the way the scale models look, or you think that you might be able to use them as an investment in the future, getting involved in model car collection right now seems to be the smart idea.

The Record Breaking 4th Gen 1965 Chevrolet Impala

For 1965, Chevrolet introduced the newly redesigned Impala to consumers and it was met with a record-breaking response that still hasn’t been surpassed in the 52 years since then. It was the first year of the fourth generation for the Impala, and customers purchased over a million of these beauties!

The 1965 Caprice Impala

In 1965, Chevy introduced the Caprice as the top-line Impala model. That might sound a bit quirky, because today, the Caprice is its own model and has been for decades, but in its first year, it was simply an Impala package. It was the next year, 1966, when the Caprice broke off as its own model. So, if you hear someone saying 1965 Caprice Impala or using the terms interchangeably, that’s why.

The Rectilinear Styling of the 1963 Chevrolet Impala

The Impala is one of Chevrolet’s longest running models, with a history that goes back to 1958 and is still running today in 2017. The 1963 Chevrolet Impala with “Jet Smooth” styling is part of the third incarnation of, or the third generation of, the Chevy Impala.

1963 Chevrolet Impala

The Sleek and Elegant 1963 Chevrolet Impala

This classic Chevy features long, straight lines described as rectilinear, but it has just enough curves to smooth out the look.

So, it comes off as long and sleek rather than boxy, and there’s nothing plain or simplistic in the look of these sweet bowties.

The 1963 Impala was designed with rectilinear styling and it had an aluminum rear taillight panel with a chrome border on the ’63 Impala SS models.

The Chevrolet company described the look of the car as Jet Smooth, and some original ads presented the car driving below a low-flying airplane to let customers compare the body lines of the Impala to a small jet.

’63 Impala Body Lines

More pointed front and rear fenders made the ’63 Impala look longer and more low-slung than previous years’ Impalas, as noted by My Classic Garage.

A ‘crease” graced the roof of the sport sedan models, slightly above the rear window.

1963 was the first year for the “coved” instrument panel, completely changing the look of the dashboard from previous years.

Simple indicator lights (idiot lights) replaced the gauges used in earlier models.

An optional tach was available, built into the dash above the steering wheel, but not very many Impala owners ordered that particular feature.

1963 Chevy Impala Engine Options

1963 Chevrolet Impala engine options were similar to 1962 Impala engine choices, with the small-block 283 cid and the 327cubic inch (4.6 and 5.4 L) V8’s being the most popular engines offered.

A special drag racer’s and NASCAR 427-cubic-inch (7.0 L) version of the 409 TurboFire V8 engine was installed in the 1963 Chevrolet Impala Sport Coupe – or Chevrolet Regular Production Option (RPO) Z11.

1963 Impala Tranny Options

the transmission options offered in the Impala in 1963 were the 3- and 4-speed Synchromesh standards, the Chevy OverDrive transmission and the Chevy PowerGlide transmission.

Color Options on the 1963 Impala

The factory exterior color options for the ’63 Impala were:

  • Tuxedo Black
  • Laurel Green
  • Ivy Green
  • Silver Blue
  • Monaco Blue
  • Azure Aqua
  • Marina Aqua
  • Autumn Gold
  • Ember Red
  • Saddle Tan
  • Cordovan Brown
  • Ermine White
  • Adobe Beige
  • Satin Silver
  • Palomar Red

The factory interior colors for the Impala in 1963 were:

  • Blue
  • Green
  • Red
  • Fawn
  • Aqua
  • Black
  • White
  • Saddle
