Why aren't there many 1975 Camaros for sale?

Asked by Apr 14, 2009 at 11:27 PM about the 1975 Chevrolet Camaro

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I found a 75 Camaro for sale for my 16-year-old son for around $8500.  The car is in really great shape including new motor and tranny.  To see if we're getting a decent deal, I went checking on line for other 75's for sale but there doesn't seem to be many for sale unlike models from previous years.  Is this because the 75s are not in demand or not popular or what?  Any help would be appreciated.  I just want to make sure we're getting a good deal.
Thanks.

The 74-77 camaros are among the least desireable. The motors those years didn't make any power the average power for the 350 4 barrel was 160 horse power. Thay will be the next desireable years as thay get fewer and fewer. I hope it was a good rebuild on the engine. I generally stay away from cars with rebuilt engines because of you don't know what the other person did. I have a 77 with 27,000 original miles i paid 8,000 for. I got a 1970 ss to restore and the motor had been rebuilt before. The cylinders were tappered wrong and it had 2 lobes down on the cam. Good thing it was a california car so it didn't have any rust.

they werent that powerful of cars and in the 70s people started looking for fuel efficiency, so the cars became cheap more so that most others because mainly of the looks, so teens bought a lot and drove them wrecklessly so many are doomed to the crusher

1975 was also the first year that they started installing catalytic convertors on Camaro's. This along with the lack of power made them very undesirable so there are less to find now a days.

That being said I find that one that is in good shape can fetch around 8-10 k. Parts are also a little more expensive because of the rarity of the vehicle. I own one myself and currently restoring it.

That is a lot of money for a 1975. This is also a rear wheel drive vehicle. Not among the safest of cars and not a great car for a new driver. I would recommend something newer with anti lock brakes, air bags, etc. This car does not have much going for it safety wise compared to the newer cars. I think you can do a lot better for your budget! How about a 2005 Camry for instance, not as cool or sporty but way smarter from the standpoint of safety and reliability. Do you live in a snow state?

K first of all none of the morons in the previous articles know anything about the 75. They are very rare and hard to find, in fact they only made about 150,ooo to all. Not that many, if u want power put a motor in it that has power u will get it back in the end, the 75 rs with low miles is climing in price rapidly.... so don't be afraid to grab one if u get the opportunity. It's a pretty cool muscle car, that's right 2 nd gen camaro is American muscle, the facts are there. The only car with stock power, was Mopar otherwise u build it bud.......
