Default Muscle Car Values

There has been a question boggling my mind lately, perhaps a member could help me answer it.

I'll be brief.

Of all the GM muscle cars (gto, chevelle ss, 442, buick gs) why is the buick GS worth so much less than the others? Besides less demand of course.

Thanks.

Poor ad campaign kept sales down so little is known about the car, kinda like a Pontiac Ventura......simillar to a nova but no street appeal

Demand. EVERYONE and their dad wants a chevelle or a 69 'maro/stang etc.

Muscle car prices are going thru the roof though. Hell, anything that you can slap a V8 into the right way is expensive these days. Damn yuppies who want "collections" they never drive.

BINGO!! Depends on what'* popular in your area, and how many of them are available. Buick is not generally considered a "Muscle" car because of the Grampa image associated with the name. They made some great, powerful, good looking cars, but thier target market doesn't make 'em jump to most people'* minds when they start thinking of a car to restore or "hot rod"....

hmmm.. that'* what i thought....

i've been looking around for a project gto for awhile, however its hard to find a decent one under 10 grand. That'* why i've started to consider another gm muscle car. I was astounded to find that u can find skylark gs'* @ prices in the 2-3 thousand dollar range, not bad for a car with 500 pounds of torque (1970).
