The Most Affordable Classic Muscle Cars

By  | 


Muscle car fans spend a lot of time at car shows, just so they can get a glimpse of some of the most amazing high-performance automobiles. These vehicles are known for their powerful engines, high-performance driving and road-racing abilities. Contrary to belief, there are some muscle cars that are still very affordable. However, these vehicles may need to be modified and adjusted to make them perform better and improve their aesthetics. Below, are a selection of the most affordable classic muscle cars.

1973 Pontiac GTO
While the company designed its GTO with a 230-horsepower, V-8 engine, it did very little to make it aesthetically pleasing at the time. Only 4,806 Pontiac GTO were produced that year. To prevent the columns from toppling, Pontiac designed its GTO with a horizontal structure that extends all the way across the top. Today, the GTO has a value ranging between $12,150 and $20,800.

1970 Ford Torino GT
Ford began releasing its first models on the Toronto market in 1968 and continued producing them until 1976. The car gets its name from the Italian city Turin, which is also called Torino in Italian. The car is basically an updated version of Ford’s Fairlane that was produced between 1962 and 1970. While the Torino GT was extremely popular in America, it did not take long for their popularity to run its course. In fact, many Americans turned their interests to the Mercury Cyclone Spoiler and completely forget about the Torino GT. Today, the Ford Torino GT is valued between $11,950 and $15,900, making it a very affordable muscle car.

1971 AMC Hornet SC/360
The 1971 AMC Hornet SC/360 has a V-8 engine. If you read any review from, you will discover that the vehicle is without a doubt one of the most popular amongst the masses. The vehicle was available with a Motorcraft 2100 two-barrel carburetor and 4300 four-barrel on top. Many Americans preferred the latter, because it was capable of producing up to 285-horsepower and 390-lbs.ft. or torque. Today, the 1971 AMC Hornet SC/360 is valued anywhere between $22,800 and $31,400. While this price is a littler steeper than other muscle cars, this is considered affordable in the muscle car market.

1964 Dodge Dart Sport 360
Americans fell in love with the Dodge Dart Sport 360, because it was considered to be “the fastest sedan” of its time. Of course, it had some difficulties keeping up with the Corvette, but it did not have any problems putting the Trans Am to shame. Its V-8 engine is capable of producing up to 300 net horsepower. One feature that made the Dodge Dart Sport 360 stand out was the fact that its dual exhaust system was lacking a catalyst. This not only increased its overall horsepower, but it reduced the consumption of gas mileage. Today, the vehicle is valued between $5,200 and $8,500. This is what any muscle car guru would expect to pay for a muscle car in today’s market.

1985 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z
As one of Chevrolet’s most popular 80s classics, the Camaro IROC-Z was an immediate hit in America. The car features a 5.0-liter V-8 engine, capable of producing up to 215-horsepower of torque. Today, the 1985 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z is valued between $4,500 and $9,050. The Camaro IROC-Z was very similar to the Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, which is valued between $5,475 and $8,650.
