How to Safely and Smartly Buy Classic Muscle Cars off Craigslist

Flip the TV to a Mecum or Barret-Jackson auto auction these days, and you’ve got about a 50 percent chance of seeing a Corvette, Mustang, or Camaro crossing the block. That’s because baby boomers, now in their prime earning years – or comfortably enjoying the benefits of them – can afford the toys they grew up pining for.
Not every classic muscle car is a numbers-matching Fire Engine Red L88 ‘Vette though, and if you’re simply looking for a starter car to turn into a weekend project, it’s more likely you’ll spend your time on Craigslist than at an auction in Scottsdale or Kissimmee. So is it safe to trust what you see on Craigslist, given the site’s at-times-shady rep?

The Fastest New American Muscle Cars on the Road

 

The 1970s and 1960s were truly good days for the American automobile industry with popular brands such as Pontiac, Ford, and Chevy among others ruling the street and the race track. However, there is a new breed of super-fast muscle cars from the 2010s that are irresistible. Here they are;

2017 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat – 204 Mph

With a 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, this four-door sedan is currently ruling the streets with an impressive 0-60 of 3.4. Thanks to its aerodynamic nature, this machine is both fuel efficient and very fast.

2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

Termed as the most powerful production muscle car of all time, this machine packs an impressive 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. This allows it to sprint from 0 to 60 in 3.5 topping at 199 mph.

2014 Shelby GT500

 

This is a brutally fast car packing 662 horsepower and 631-pound feet of torque. This machine can do 0 – 60 in 3.5. Its sleek monster design is also impressive.

2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 – 195 Mph

As the baddest of the Camaro lineup, this beat looking machine packs 650 horsepower and 650-pound feet of torque.

2015 Equus Bass 770

This rare hand built machine is a blend of all that makes a muscle car great. It makes 0 to 60 in 3.4 packing 640 horsepower and 605-pound feet of torque. Only 250 have been made.

  1. Problem is this muscle car’s of the 60s and 70s where also low cost vehicles so the younger generation could not only afford them and insure them…and work on them with most home tools…how many of these v8 muscle cars of today can the young generation afford…let alone insure and work on in there garage without buying computers and special tools?????

  2. muscle cars of the 60s and 70s were just better todays muscle cars don’t even deserve that name they are high performance yes but NOT muscle cars

  3. In all honesty, my ’08 GT500 is quite a bit faster than the ’68 GT500 I had in college.

  4. So this post mentions pontiac ford and chevy….hmmm i think ur missing the best one…mopar!…we had challengers,chargers,dusters,demons,cudas,satellites, GTX’s, road runners…and yet no mention of them in ur initial paragraph…biased much?

    1. Agreed…but it also left out Olds and Buick and I’m sure we’re still missing some of the early ones…

  5. The true muscle cars are from the 60’s and 70’s which is where the name muscle car originated.

Buick Skylark Gran Sport 1965 images

The '65 Skylark Gran Sport came in two trim levels; the Special or the more uptown Special Deluxe. There were 15,800 of them produced this year with 11,351 two door hardtops and the balance two door coupes or convertibles. All units are equipped with the 401 CID V8 mounted with a Carter 4-barrel, which produces 325 bhp (242.35 kW) @4,400 rpm and develops 445 lb-ft (603.34 Nm) of torque @ 2,800 rpm. The Gran Sport can do 0-60 (97 km/h) in 7.8 seconds and the quarter mile in 16.6 seconds @ 86 mph (138.4 km/h). GM had a standing edict that none of its divisions would have a mid-sized car with an engine larger than 400 cubic inches, but Buick lists the 401 as a 400 to circumvent the ruling.
