The many legendary muscle cars of the 1960s were some of the first cars to gain significant value on the collector’s market thanks to their glistening curb appeal. Back in the early 1990s, wealthy car collectors started paying high sums for cars from their youth as they sought rare and limited-edition models. The trend has continued ever since, and what were once $10,000 cars now are pushing over $50,000 as a result.
What’s more, is that some models are regularly achieving over six and seven figures at auctions because they are so rare. Even seeing a classic muscle car sold for over $1 million is not rare due to the current surge in the collector car market. Therefore, we looked at the 30 most expensive muscle cars ever sold right here.
30. 1967 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 – $100,000+
Although the 1967 Z/28 wasn’t the most powerful Camaro Chevrolet had to offer, it was by far the best choice due to its superior handling, braking, and overall driving dynamics. The Z/28 package included front disc brakes, a close-ratio four-speed manual transmission, and revised suspension and steering. It also had exterior trim details like racing stripes, vinyl roof, and headlight covers, making it very sporty as a result. Still, the real treat was under the hood. The power came from a 5.0-liter V8 with 290 HP because of its high-revving nature (via Mecum).
The 1967 Z/28 Camaro was a pretty rare and desirable car, and today, one in perfect condition will set you back around $90,000. This is a far cry from $3,200, which was the sticker price in 1967.
