Chevrolet 1955-1964

It has been decades since an epidemic of nostalgia-inspired Baby Boomers in the USA went out to buy Chevys the same as they had as ‘first cars’. That was in the 1980s when 1955-57 models soared and became one of America’s and the world’s most popular collector cars.

Values have now remained steady for some years and that is helping increase demand for later, larger models and ensuring that more of these are also being preserved.

Most costly of the 1958-61 cars are two-door Impala or Bel-Air convertibles and hardtops. These with the desirable ‘409’ V8 can top $100,000.

Also enjoying a growth spurt are 1950s Cameo and 3100 pickups which can exceed $40,000.
