Classic car market 2019: What’s hot, what’s not

Motoring Research Logo By John Moroney of Motoring Research | Slide 1 of 11: The big classic car story of 2019 is the rise of the Millennials in the market. Younger buyers are eschewing traditionally hot models like muscle and sports cars in favor of vehicles they A: know, and B: can afford. Cars that Boomers may never even have glanced at are now solid buys because 30-somethings know them from childhood video games.With the support of Gen X, trucks and SUVs are blazing, and interest will likely continue to climb. Again though, coveted examples like first-gen Ford Broncos and Toyota FJ Land Cruisers are too expensive for younger buyers. Heavy activity is appearing around Chevrolet Suburbans and Blazers from the 1970s and 1980s; 1970s Ford F-Series and later Ford Broncos; and International Scouts.
  Japanese cars are also shining bright. Traditional wisdom holds that whatever what hot in the high school parking lot will be even hotter a few decades years later. The Mazda RX-7, Toyota Supra, and Nissan 300-series Z cars are on the rise.Using data from Hagerty classic car insurers based on auction sale results and insurance quoting activity, we’ve compiled some prime examples of recent trends. Activity around high-end domestics appears to be slowing overall, while the $15,000-and-under market is heating up.Example prices shown are for vehicles in excellent condition.(shown: 1985 Ford Bronco)More classic cars from Motoring Research:

Classic car market 2019: has the whole world lost its head?

The big classic car story of 2019 is the rise of the Millennials in the market. Younger buyers are eschewing traditionally hot models like muscle and sports cars in favor of vehicles they A: know, and B: can afford. Cars that Boomers may never even have glanced at are now solid buys because 30-somethings know them from childhood video games.

With the support of Gen X, trucks and SUVs are blazing, and interest will likely continue to climb. Again though, coveted examples like first-gen Ford Broncos and Toyota FJ Land Cruisers are too expensive for younger buyers. Heavy activity is appearing around Chevrolet Suburbans and Blazers from the 1970s and 1980s; 1970s Ford F-Series and later Ford Broncos; and International Scouts.

Japanese cars are also shining bright. Traditional wisdom holds that whatever what hot in the high school parking lot will be even hotter a few decades years later. The Mazda RX-7, Toyota Supra, and Nissan 300-series Z cars are on the rise.

Using data from Hagerty classic car insurers based on auction sale results and insurance quoting activity, we’ve compiled some prime examples of recent trends. Activity around high-end domestics appears to be slowing overall, while the $15,000-and-under market is heating up.

Example prices shown are for vehicles in excellent condition.
