Muscle cars have always been a significant part of the car culture. With millions of people worldwide avid muscle car lovers, these cars are in high demand. So how do you get your hands on one without breaking the bank? Car News Central have got it all worked out…
From most expensive to cheapest, we’re going to look at the most affordable muscle cars money can buy:
Half pickup, half muscle car, the Ford Ranchero ticks a number of boxes. Capable of 360bhp, this car is both practical and impressive and is an absolute bargain at just $15,000.
What I like most about this one is how it looks so much like the classic Mustang but has a much cheaper price tag. For a price tag of $10,000 you could own this beauty with a 351 cubic inch engine and 300 horsepower.
Brought into the world in the early 60s, this car is on par with the Ford Torino and can be bought for a modest $10,000 but unlike the competition, can boast a V8 engine capable of 310 bhp.
One of my favorite cars in the list, the Fury can be bought for under the $10,000 price tag and rivals the Cutlass with a V8 engine capable of 350 bhp. The main attraction of this car is the era it hails from.
Originally a top of the line Dodge, this car came into production in the 60s and can set you back around $8,000. The 383 cubic inch can produce 325 horsepower, not too shabby for a custom car.
One of the most iconic cars on this list, you might be surprised to know you could bag a Riviera for $8,000. The immense 455 cubic inch engine can produce 370 horsepower and was GMs first entry into the prestige niche of luxury cars.
Chevrolet Monte Carlo
If your budget is a little limited, then maybe the Monte Carlo is more for you. With a price tag of $7,000 the 305 cubic inch V8 engine could produce 250 horsepower which isn’t much in the grand scheme of things but gives plenty of room for fine tuning.
Joint bottom of our list is the Wildcat. For $7,000 you could bag yourself a 429 cubic inch engine capable of 360 horsepower which leaves plenty of left over cash to keep it in top shape.
