The United States Postal Service does like to do collectible and commemorative stamps, almost as much as they like delivering stuff to the wrong address. A new series of commemorative stamps are the Muscle Car stamps, a commemorative series of Forever class stamps featuring classic Detroit muscle.
Muscle Cars stamps third in car-themed series
As most are aware, the United States Postal Service comes out with commemorative stamps that celebrate some part of American culture like famous people, events and so forth. They add a bit of color to stuff being sent through the post.
Sometimes the stamps are part of a series. One such series is called “Americans On The Move,” which has heretofore featured cars from particular eras or with particular attributes. There have been two sets, according to USA Today, the 50s Sporty Cars series and the “Fins and Chrome” series, released, according to AutoGuide, in 2005 and 2008, respectively.
And the USPS saw that it was good.
A new series is being released, Muscle Cars. There are five muscle car stamps to be had, featuring classics of the breed.
Choose from five awesome rides
The choices of muscle car stamps are limited to five, all of which are undeniably classic muscle cars. One can choose from the 1966 Pontiac GTO, the 1967 Shelby GT-500 Mustang, the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, the 1970 Plymouth Hemicuda and the 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS.
These cars are definitely classics. The Shelby GT-500, Charger Daytona and Hemicuda are among the most desirable classic American cars there are. Each is exceedingly rare and commands high prices at auction; the Shelby is the most “common,” with only 2,048 examples having been produced. Granted, one can score a modern Shelby GT-500 for much less money and with much more horsepower. Help with financing a down payment can be found easily at micro-loan companies such as https://personalmoneynetwork.com making even zero down financing a realistic possibility.
The Charger Daytona was a homologation special, a production car that essentially rolls off the production line ready to race and it was dominant in NASCAR. Hemicudas, of course, are among the rarest and most highly prized muscle cars, Hemicuda convertibles more so. A Hemicuda convertible can’t be had for less than seven figures.
Granted, the Chevelle SS and the ’66 GTO are equally classic cars.
Cost as much as regular stamps
The good news about the muscle car stamps is that they aren’t too expensive. The other good news it that they are Forever class stamps, meaning they are adequate postage for a small letter until the end of the Postal Service. Granted, that’s probably next Tuesday.

At any rate, according to the United States Postal Service website, they are available as either a block of five stamps, which go for $2.30, a block of 10 stamps or a book of 20 stamps, with the 20-stamp book running $9.20. Serious stamp collectors or philatelists, people who love stamps, can also order uncut press sheets, keepsakes and so forth for that series.
The stamps will get a public debut, according to AutoGuide, on Feb. 22, at the Daytona International Speedway, which will feature Kyle and Richard Petty. The Daytona 500 kicks off two days later.
