We all know classic cars can come at insane prices, it is a passion that requires deep pockets but if you’re really tight on your budget, there are some classic cars that are very budget friendly. Here are some classic cars that are cheaper than most.
Chevrolet El Camino
The El Camino was supposed to be revived with the Pontiac G8 St but unfortunately did not pull through due to the fall of the economy. Even so, the classic Chevrolet El Camino still shines today and would be a great part of any classic car collection, the best thing is they are easy to find and have relatively low prices.
The Datsun 510 may be heavily inspired by European cars during its time but it is certainly not a copycat of the BMW. The Datsun 510 is a great car on its own turf with its distinguished side mirrors that are mounted on the front hood.
Fiat 124 Spider
There are brand new 124 Spider replicas but they still can beat the classics which has a lot more attitude. The old 124s are far more stylish and classy than the replicas and they are worth your money.
The classic Ford pickup certainly still a head turner today, its nostalgic presence is loved even by non-truck lovers. So if you find a classic F-100 for sale, it’s best you grab that opportunity. And because it was so abundant back in the days, there are probably a lot more hidden in somebody’s garage.
The CJs may be more popular, but the Jeep Jeepster certainly has a unique appeal that is not found in the CJs. Forget the CJs and grab the Jeepster that will surely stand out in a crowd.
There is that different feeling when you drive a classic Mercedes but if you prefer to have a classier Merc than the W124, then there is the W115 that surely brings in the classy Mercedes appeal at a reasonable price.
The BMW Clown Show is certainly in every collectors list but they are getting more and more expensive. For a less expensive option, go for the MGB GT which is not far off.
The early models of the Valiant may not look that great but the later models has a lot more appeal. And with the variations of the Valiant’s styles, you have a lot of options to choose. You’ll really get your money’s worth as its engines are famous for its reliability.
The Firebirds is a favourite for resto-mods as it is very easy to resto-mod it as much as you want if you have the money. The 1970s Firebirds have been sold in relatively good prices, you just have to watch out for them.
Volvo is certainly one of the desired classics for many but usually come in high price tags. Fortunately, the Volvo 122 is something you can probably afford. Sure, it is not as classy as the P1800 but it can still hold its own. And for safety concerns, the 122 was the first car to have the 3-point seatbelts that became the standard in 1959.
