Many of those classic undervalued cars are now becoming a collectible. Some of those are cheap, which is a good start to begin your classic car collections.
Here’s a list of top 10 underrated classic cars.
1970-1973 Datsun 240Z
This car was among the first Japanese cars to have a successful run at America. The Datsun 240Z featured an attractive styling and is powered with a six cylinder engine that’s capable of 0 to 60 mph in just 7.8 seconds. Its top speed 125-mph can outrun a Porsche 911T and it’s available in red, yellow and orange. With its reliable power and comfort styling, you might possibly think that it should somewhat gather $40,000 but 240Z’s suffers from cheap pricing with only $15,000.
1969-1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 426 Cobra Jet
A lot of collectors ignore this car because it’s a Ford and it’s not a Shelby. This car suffered an underestimated value and power during its run. It was almost identical with Shelby GT 500 because they had the same motor that has the same performance and same designs. Undervalued and overlooked, this car’s value was only half the price of Shelby GT 500.
1964-1970 Pontiac GTO
Even with the downfall of Pontiac, there’s no evident mediocrity among the cars that it’s been releasing. A classic GTO that has a similarity from Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport can be acquired with just $30,000. Credited for defining the muscle car era, this GT can produce 350 hp that was paired with floor-mounted manual transmission.
1969-1973 Triumph TR6
This astonishing British sports car can be bought for just $15,000. Though having the below average horsepower of a 2.5 liter six cylinder engine, TR6s are easy to maintain and its design was really a head turner.
1972-1975 Porsche 914 2.0
This car really had a hard time during its run. It was underestimated, unacknowledged and definitely rated too low for its class.
1967-1975 Full-Size American Convertibles
The 1968 Ford XL and 1967 Dodge Polara were amongst the ignored classic cars of their generation. Nowadays, they are now starting to make a name for themselves at classic car auctions. Ranging prices are from $15,000 to $100,000. A 1967 Dodge Polara in good condition car easily acquired for just $15,000.
1965-1975 Station Wagons
The station wagon’s charisma is one of the reasons why they are much more popular than they were just five or six years ago. 1966 Ford Country Squire and 1967 Buick Sport Wagon were among this class. A good condition of these cars can be bought for just $8,000 to $10,000 but as the years pass by, these cars can get more expensive.
1965-1985 Pickup Trucks
1970 Ford F-100 Ranger’s overall structure never goes out of style. Think about its massive chrome grille and bumpers plus its two tone paint blending, this car was a keeper. Any truck like this in its good condition can be bought for only $7,500 to $10,000.
These cars are the chosen rejects, mostly misunderstood and loathed like the famous 90’s band Nirvana. Examples of these underrated classic cars are 1975 AMC Pacer X Levi’s Edition, A 1973-1974 VW Thing and 1985-1991 Yugo. Mostly mass-produced and cheap, finding a good condition of these cars may be rare but the thing is its value may never increase.
