What classic cars do Americans love? The question is a sound one and we have an answer. Actually, we have ten answers as Hemmings, a classic car authority, compiled a list of classic cars Americans love the most. Apparently, Hemmings analyzed all classified ads they had since 2010 and the results are in.
Yes, the Corvette. It is America’s most beloved classic car. Surprised? Well, don’t be. After all, in an adventure called the Corvette history, GM crafted a variety of different versions definitely picking the brain of all drivers.
- Superfast ones? Check (Z06, ZR1)
- Beautiful ones? Check (I think it is the 1963 Corvette Stingray Split Window Coupe but you don’t have to take my word for it)
- Advanced ones? Check (well, C6 and C7)
The Corvette is one of only a handful of sports cars that survived for several generations and for more than six decades. That said, Hemmings found that the Chevrolet Corvette was the most sought-after classic car in 40 states.
This one isn’t much of a surprise either. In production since March 1964, the Ford Mustang successfully lived through six generations to date. The car revitalized the American dream, enticed the development and production of some of the best muscle cars America has ever seen and became a household name synonymous with muscle cars. As Hemmings reported, high survival rate made the Ford Mustang an awesome car for early car collectors. No wonder it became the classic car to have in six states.
