Top 10 Classic Cars For Under $5000
The price of vintage muscle cars has been driven into the stratosphere because of the collector car market. There are still awesome classics for reasonable prices on the market. Websites such as Netcars.com have some great bargains.
Top Ten Classics for Under $5,000
10. Chevrolet Nova SS
This car is for sale on Craigslist for $4,900. It has a few rough edges, but according to the seller, it is mechanically sound. This car looks mean and that makes it hard to argue with even though it comes with a 350 and has no air conditioning.
9. MG B
There are many MG Bs on the market for under $5,000. It might cost quite a bit more to get it running. Once that’s all sorted you’re left with a fun car that’s one of the best driving experiences this planet has to offer.
8. Datsun 510
There was one Datsun 510 selling on eBay the other day. Bidding has since stopped and the highest bid was $4,550. The interior of the car looked a little ragged, but who can complain when it costs less than $5,000.
7. Triumph Spitfire
For a very small outlay by classic car standards, you can be the proud owner of a car with a cool name like Spitfire. Like the MG B though, this low price should be considered as an initial investment. You can enjoy many days of convertible fun sitting behind the steering wheel of a quite
excellent British import sports car.
6. Alfa Romeo GTV6
Once this car is smoothly running, it makes the trouble of finding one worthwhile. The smell and the sound and the fun you can have shooting up
ramps at 45 mph are the rewards. If you want an Italian home project, this is the car for you. Make sure you have professional backup.
5. 1966 Plymouth Fury
The paint on this car looks nice even though the interior has probably experienced better days. This car is selling for well under half of the $5,000 limit we have set. There is a 318 hidden under the hood and its title in New Jersey is clean.
4. Datsun Z
There are 41 Datsun Z cars for sale on eBay. Of these cars, 24 are at or lower than our $5,000 limit. There has got to be one in there that’s a good contender. This car is often like a blank canvas that can be transformed according to taste.
3. BMW 2002
According to eBay there are ten 2002s on sale for under $5,000 in the US. Don’t miss out on owning one of these like I did in high school. You can either restore it or put something else under the hood.
2. Citroen DS
This car resides in Arizona, so it probably has very little rust. The interior is made of red velour-like material and the car is from 1965. It sells for $4,500.
1. Mercedes-Benz 190e Cosworth
It sounds too good to be true, but there are a number of these cars for sale in the US. They all have automatic transmissions even though the mileage on some of them is high. But they sell for under $5,000 and that’s pretty awesome.
