1967 Ford Mustangs were the most searched-for vehicles on ClassicCars.com during July

The 1967 Ford Mustang, 1967 Chevrolet Impala and 1969 Dodge Charger extended their reign as the most-searched vehicles on ClassicCars.com in July, when the pony car took first place ahead of the Chevy and Dodge.

Those three cars have held the top 3 positions throughout 2019, though they have exchanged their order several times during the first seven months of the year.

For July, ranking fourth through 10th on the list were the 1968 Mustang, 1964 Impala, 1969 Chevrolet Impala, 1969 Camaro, 1969 Mustang, 1963 Chevrolet Corvette, 1968 Charger and 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air.

The Corvette was a newcomer to the top-10 searches. 

For the second month in a row, the Volkswagen van/bus was responsible for the most searches that didn’t specify a model year

We also track more generic searches, searches not for specific-year vehicles but, for example, for any Chevrolet or any Ford Mustang. Among those searches in July, the Volkswagen bus continued to dominate. It soared from fifth in May to first in June and again led the list in July. 

The full top-10 in “all year” searches were, in order, VW bus, Chevrolet, Ford, DeLorean, Ford Mustang, Chevrolet C-10 pickup trucks, Willys Jeep, Chevrolet Corvette, International Scout and Volkswagen dune buggy.

The Scout was a newcomer to the top-10, replacing Dodge.

“DeLoreans got a boost from the documentary about John DeLorean while the new C8 hype clearly triggered more interest in older Corvettes,” said Roger Falcione, president of ClassicCars.com, the world’s largest classic car marketplace. 

“There’s a big Harvester Homecoming event in early August in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and we suspect that event triggered some renewed interest in the Scout.”
