I keep wondering when the bubble is going to burst, but it doesn't seem to be happening. Chargers see way more demand than GTXs - But look at the price of the one I used to own. Previous owner bought it on eBay in 2013 for 18K, running driving, fresh engine. Put 30K into it. Current asking price on eBay- $89K. Seems nuts, I'm glad not to be buying in this market.Now that I have restored my 69 road runner fully. Bought for 7 thou. Put at least 30K in the resto. With gas prices going up and up wonder if I can afford to drive it. Was asked what I would take for the car now and said at least 100k. That is the price I don't want to sell it. Now will I have to buy the new electric challenger or charger with batteries and an air pump through organ type mufflers to have that muscle car sound. I don't know. Will I be riding an electric motorcycle or something so I can afford to get form A to B. I hope not. But like stated they are not making these cars anymore. Have been looking to buy a charger of that era 68 to 69. Getting harder to find them in any shape. I look back at all the pain going through to restore my car and just don't know if I could do this again. Best of luck and hope you can work out a deal with the guy.
I've had more than one vehicle since the mid 70's and at one time there were 12 here with 6 of them registered and running. If there was more money available there would have been more running and driving! The ones that say you can only drive 1 at a time don't get it....
Sold mine as a roller back in October for north of 40k (mind you it was a drag car but had fresh paint) will make an awesome pro street car.So a guy I know has a 68 rt charger, he might consider selling. I have done several vehicle swaps and other deals with him. But curious to what yall think this basket case is worth. He said he should have every part and piece for it and probably quite a few extras. Trunk pan has been replaced. Passenger side floor board needs repairs. Does run and drive. Believe to be factory 440 drivetrain. Seats are not original. I offered $15k cash and he didn't take it. He said he does have a title. About 11 years ago he would have taken 10k cash and i didnt bite on it. Shame on me. Hasnt moved since then. About 15 years ago it was a complete running and driving car.View attachment 1446698View attachment 1446699View attachment 1446700View attachment 1446701View attachment 1446702View attachment 1446703View attachment 1446708View attachment 1446709

There is no bubble. Those are the prices and they’ll only keep going up because everyone caught on and wants one.I keep wondering when the bubble is going to burst, but it doesn't seem to be happening.

It has taken me 8 years to build my 66 belvedere and almost 100k. It's not perfect but I built it how I wanted. Sometimes just a a hour a day and other times was 12hour days for weeks. Also taken a few months off and not touching it. It takes knowledge and patience. From doing the headliner myself to welding frame connectors and torque boxes in. I know it is cheaper to buy one already done for sure.There is no bubble. Those are the prices and they’ll only keep going up because everyone caught on and wants one.
All these shows that build a car in 30 minutes or less seem to make everyone think that building a car is cool and fun and you can do it on the weekend
The only way I could see a slight drop and I’m not talking about 50% off, I’m talking about a slight drop maybe like 20 to 30% would be of Dyna corn started producing 68 charger bodies but you gotta remember that those body are a shell that sell anywhere from 15 to 20 grand and it’s just a shell no even one bolt or screw .
