I appreciate the responses, but these cars mentioned are not overlooked collectibles:
- Falcon Futura
- 1966-67 Dodge Charger
- Max Wedge Mopars
- Olds Jetfire
The purpose of the article was to show cars that offer something that would be appreciated in a collectible, yet aren’t often hunted down by collectors. All the above cars have some recognition or more in the hobby, so they didn’t quality. I think the 1961-63 Tempest suggestion comes closest, but still not at the level of the cars in the article. Think of them as the automotive equivalent of a “lost classic” song.
Regarding the 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu Sport, according to this site, there was WAY more than 100 built:
In the catalog, there’s nothing suggesting it came with buckets and console standard:
Even the SS didn’t come with those features standard. In fact, the brochure points out buckets were only available with sports coupes and convertibles:
I know brochures are not the end-all of factual information, but I have doubts on this “1 of 100” Chevy.
Regarding a 402 Chevelle, you can read about it here:
