Interest in vintage Chevrolets was on the upswing in October with people searching for cars on the ClassicCars.com Marketplace website.
In the “all-years” category, Chevrolet moved into the No. 1 spot held since May by the Volkswagen van/bus, which slipped to second place. Also moving up in the “all-years” listings was the Chevrolet C-10 pickup truck, climbing from fifth to fourth.
Corvette already was among the top 10 and Camaro also made that elite group in October, statistics show.
Meanwhile, the 1967 Ford Mustang extended its rein over the year/make/model searches list to four consecutive months, but the 1967 Chevrolet Impala soared from fifth in September to second in October, with the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro speeding from sixth to third.
The 1963 Corvette and 1957 Bel Air also returned to the top-10 search list, and the 1959 Impala was 10th in October, giving Chevrolet five of the top-10 positions for the month.
“There is still very strong interest in the VW van,” said Roger Falcione, founder and chief executive of ClassicCars.com, “but Chevrolet was the most-searched brand overall until the Volkswagen’s recent surge and now it appears the bowtie brand is reclaiming that position.
“The popularity of the C-10 is an indication of the growing interest in vintage pickup trucks, which provide an affordable and accessible canvas for restoration.”
