In 2017 what you can get for a muscle car for under $10,000 is getting less and less, but there are still vehicles out there which you can score for this amount. Haggerty put together a list of the top 10 classic cars you can get for under $10,000, which do include a few muscle cars in the listing.

According to Hagerty pickups are definitely strong at the moment, but standout muscle cars include –

1978-1987 Chevrolet El Camino
You can expect a condition 3 El Camino to go for around $8200 according to Hagerty. If you shop around a little you can also find a late 60s and early 70s examples such as this 1967 El Camino custom with a replacement L79 engine. If you can squeeze your budget just a little higher, there seems to plenty of others on the market. If you want to go to the other end of the spectrum, here is a listing for a 1970 El Camino SS with the mighty 454ci V8 engine going for $17,500.00.

1971-1976 Buick Electra 225
A Buick Electra isn’t the immediate car I would opt for, but Hagerty have this one down in a condition three for going around $5,900. One of the plus points is a 455-cid V8 engine with optional driver and passenger airbags.

1965-1970 Oldsmobile 88
A condition 3 example will set you back $7,750. Bonuses include the GM’s Comfortron Air Conditioning with engine options ranging from a 330-cid V8 to a 455-cid V8.

If you’re after something a lot more popular such as a Dodge Charger, you’ll be looking at a project vehicle which will need complete restoration for under $10,000. You will probably need to completely restore everything from the powertrain to the body, but these examples are still possible.
