Classic era?

So I was thinking the other day about values of cars and how they start to go back up when entering the classical era. Well what makes a classic car classic? And how long untill the fox body mustangs will be considered classic? Is a 89-91 considered a classic them being 20yrs old and if so, is the 92-93 model fox's considered a classic?

Re: Classic era?

To my best knowledge the classic car period begins when the car reaches 25 years. I am curious to know how the values will go up once the fox's enter that era.

Yea me too, I think the fox bodies will go up in price atleast 2-3k especially since they are getting to be harder to find good. Most have been wrecked or Modded out too much.(interior diff, non matching
panels different motors exc.)

Re: Classic era?

25 years just makes it an antique?

Classic on the other hand seems to be defined in numerous ways that are not all that easily identifiable.

Here's just one of the results of searches I performed. CLASSIC

Exactly! Just choose the definition that suits you and use it.

You make a good point, you see alot that are track only cars and aren't street legal. I get offers all the time for mine because it is in good shape and still has a lot of the original parts still on it. I am already seeing some around that are unmolested going for $10,000+.

As long as the engine hasn't lost drivability, it probably isn't modded too much.

Re: Classic era?

I yhink it is 25 years to become a classic but cars only go up in value if it becomer desireable to the public if the fox body mustang does not turn enough people on the value doesn't go up just like any other car, but you never know time will tell.

Re: Classic era?

Then just start watching the auto auctions and that is usually where the values of vehicles show up first.

Out of the PA Code Book
