3 Classic American Muscle Cars That Won’t Break the Bank

It's true — many of us admire high-performance vehicles from afar while only dreaming about having one of our own. But the price tags on many of our favorite classics are way too high to even consider. There are precious few, however, that have endured over the years without becoming rotten old junk piles or rare sought-after finds, and can even be found at affordable prices. Check them out!

1970 Mercury Cyclone GT

 

Valued today at $12,000-$19,000, the Cyclone's price tag doesn't give it nearly enough credit for the hype back in the 70's. The Mercury Cyclone features a classic, eye-catching design and a 250-hp 5L V8 engine. Though this unique car isn't for everyone, it's definitely a great find.

1973 Pontiac GTO

 

As the GTO model died out from Pontiac's productions, Pontiac didn't put much effort into hyping and marketing the car, and so it made a small splash without notice. This doesn't mean that it should be ignored; it sports a 6.6L V8 engine, and can be purchased today for as little as $11,000-$20,000.

1967 Mercury Cougar

 

Similar to the Mustang in almost all but name, the Cougar usually sells for around $15,000, though in brand new condition the price can jump up quite a bit. However, sporting a similar V8 to the Mustangs of its time, we can say for certain that this car was lost in the shadow of more popular machines.

  1. I like ’67 Cougars better than any comparable Mustang….I think it stems from how cool Clooney and Tarantino looked driving theirs in Dusk til Dawn.
