The B body Caprice/cadillac fleetwood/roadmaster and oldsmobile cruisers are already a classic! In fact the impala ss is also a classic now! Only the 1996 is more desirable due to the floor shifter as opposed to the column mounted shifter. Also the same can be had for mercury marauders from 2003-04' but due to poor sales that idea has gone away since not many were made and not alot of people had them per se but they are still around and hard to find! Dealer lots have them in excellent condition @ 12-16k! Others are run down and beat to hell and worth maybe 5-6 grand. This would apply to any impala ss from 1994-96'.The GNX was world class car at the time, acceleration wise. The Super is quick for sure, but nowhere near the relative superiority of the GNX at the time.
More importantly they are coupes. There are plenty of coupes and convertibles that end up valuable from GNX's to 1979 Firebirds.
There just aren't any sedans. People who pay big bucks for nostalgia want the cars they dreamed about as kids. Those always are 2 doors.
The only sedans built since muscle car era ended that have collector value I can think of are some Aston Martins, early M5s, and some AMG Hammers from Mercedes (before MB bought AMG), and perhaps the big 6.3L merc sedans of the 1970s.
That's a lot of years, and a lot of cars. Sedans just aren't typically collector material. Perhaps the Super bucks that trend. I'd just be more inclined to make that bet with a Caddy XLR-V.
