  1. Dodge Charger Hemi R/T – $150,000

In 1968, muscle car fans were wowed by the fantastic lines of the new Charger. It featured the popular “Coke bottle” styling, big grille, muscular shape, recessed rear glass, and four round rear lights. In those days of crazy designs and aggressive muscle car styling, the 1968 Charger was in a league of its own.

In fact, no other model could compete with this coupe. Of course, the top of the line model was the R/T with 426 Hemi engine. But they only built 475 of them, which explains the high price they achieved at the auctions recently.

  1. Buick GSX – $185,000

The 1970 model year was a watershed year for American muscle and performance models. Never before or since have there been so many great models available. Backed by steady sales and the great reception of their muscle models, Buick decided to introduce the ultimate muscle car.

They wanted it to be in the form of the legendary and scarce Buick GSX. For long, this car was in the shadow of more popular machines. But recently, the prices have started to go up. The reason is that the GSX is a rare car since they only made 678 of them in 1970.

  1. Pontiac Trans Am Smokey and the Bandit Promo Car – $550,000

The legendary 1977 comedy movie, Smokey and The Bandit, not only promoted Burt Reynolds into the biggest movie star of the period, but it also helped the Pontiac Trans Am achieve legendary status among car enthusiasts. Over the years, Pontiac produced several special versions with the legendary gold and black color scheme. But there is only one original promo car, which sold in 2016 for over half a million dollars.

These are the 20 most expensive classic muscle cars that ever crossed the auction block. So, if you want one of these, you’d better have a huge bank account. Even so, they are worth the money since they are so rare. All of them hold a special place in automotive history.
