Investment Cars Down Under
Got a bit carried away with a discussion in one of my LinkedIn groups and thought i would share it here. The question was,
What does everybody think will be the next big movers in the classic car world?
My quick reply….
Aussie muscle cars like the GT Falcon and Torana are already reaching the 50k for a good one. The 70’s Monaro will become more sought after as the HK HT HG models are already at 30k for an average one and up to 300+ for a Bathurst GTS edition.
The Brock commodores as still affordable and will not lose momentum for some time. The 80’s XD and XE will earn great return if they are replica Group C racing versions.
On the immediate horizon I am and will continue to buy Holden HD and HR as they are still around but are rising in value. The EH Holden has already hit the 10k mark for a ok one but the EJ Holden is still affordable and celebrating its 50th birthday this year.

As a general genre the station wagon will begin a steady rise over the next 10 years led by the more scarce Aussie panel vans.
Don’t forget the Valiant/Chrysler brand as the production numbers were lower and now the availability is lower as well.
As for the USA cars the 50’s pickups are affordable but not for long The 71-73 Mustang is snowballing as prices for the earlier models sky rocket.
And as is the case in the US the mid to late 70s Camaro and Pontiac Trans Am’s will show a great return if you buy now and hold for about 5 years.
For a last suggestion the Aussie 2002 Monaro would be a great buy as they will be bottoming out soon and due to the limited years in the return they will be collector cars in no time.
Thanks for the discussion as it has inspired me to ad a blog about this topic to our site www.customcarsales.com.au in the very near future.
