Starsky and Hutch was a TV cop show that aired for four seasons from 1975 to 1979.
The most famous aspect of the show was that two cops fought crime, sometimes undercover, while driving around in a bright red Ford Gran Torino.
A red car with a white vector stripe extending from the roof to the sides of the vehicle no less. Anyway, that car become an icon for fans of the show.
If I were to invest in a classic car, as an investment to perhaps sell to a collector, it would be to buy a 1974 to 1976 Ford Gran Torino. Several Ford models from those years were used on the show.
My Classic Car Investment Ambitions
The average price of a new car is about $36,000. However, investing in a classic car, an investment item for possible resale, can be optimized by investing in strategically frugal and available resources.
Still, I would have to pay for restoration, remodeling, and mechanical updating. I would have to pay tens of thousands, or more, to get it looking like the classic car from the TV show. (Well, you can’t say, “investment,” without, “invest,” now, can you?)
Still, a fully restored 1976 Ford Gran Torino, styled after the TV show, is now worth $100,000.
Do you have ambitions to invest in a classic car? Here are some affordable options for you to consider.
These are very affordable classic cars available now that might become more valuable to collectors in the future due to rarity and potential enthusiast appeal.
A classic or vintage car is at least 20 to 45 years old in terms of model year.
