Cost of Things in 1969
Cars and trucks
A stamp was $.06, a gallon of gas was $.35, a median home price was $27,900., a gallon of milk was $1.10. A Dodge Dart GTS V-8 convertible was $3402.00.
The cars and truck were quite cheap in the year 1969. According to online reviews the vehicles cost about $200,000 in the highest estimate. The vehicles were not in large numbers then hence could be quite expensive to purchase.
a dollar was worth about 5 or 6 then....6 25 according to a calculator
Things were about one fifth the cost of things today (probably less actually).See:http://www.measuringworth.com/uscompare/OR http://stats.areppim.com/calc/calc_usdlrxdeflator.php
cheaper than today but prices today are equal to what prices would be in 69 due to income
I bought my first new car in 1969. It was a Chevy Chevelle SS396 and cost $4200. Wish I still had it.
