10 Best Cheap Classic Cars
If you are a car enthusiast who is looking for affordable classics, you need to think about the 10 best cheap classic cars. These cars have stood the test of time, and are considered the best of the cheap classic cars.
- Morris Minor. In spite of being old, slightly bulky and looking like a car which should take some time to reach its maximum speed, the Morris Minor is an excellent car for a vintage car collector. It is smooth, comfortable, roomy and when compared to its contemporaries, economical and reliable. The car could cost anywhere between $600 and $20,000, though the cheapest ones would require a lot of restoration work.
- Sixties Chevrolet Impala. If the Morris Minor in its time belonged to the middle class, the Impala was among the higher end models. They were among the finest sports convertibles of the time and are comfortable and stylish to boot. An Impala could cost you anywhere from $5000 to $100,000. You could get sixties vintage for around $10,000.
Triumph Herald. The name itself heralds triumph, doesn’t it? For whatever reason the car was named so by Triumph, the Triumph Herald is a classic luxury car of the sixties. It is available in coupe, saloon and convertible designs, convertible being the most popular and sleekest while saloon being the cheapest. It is light and easy to drive and in its time used to be fitted with such luxuries as carpets. The car will cost anywhere from $1500 onwards.
Triumph Spitfire. The spitfire is the more popular sports car model of the Herald sedan which came in the sixties and seventies. While it has a basic chassis design and suspension system like Herald’s, the Spitfire is sleeker and faster. As long as you don’t drive too fast, the car would be a pleasure to drive. It would cost you anywhere around $1000 to $10,000.
- Porsche 912. If you have always wanted to own a Porsche, why not try for a sixties Porsche vintage? The classic car was a hit when it was brought out, though at present it has ceded importance to its more poplar older brother the 911. The car looks like a 911 but has the four cylinder engine of the older 356, which is probably what makes the 912 unique. You could get a classic 912 in a price range of $3,000 to $25,000.
- BMW 2002. If you talk of classic cars, how can you forget the BMW 2002 (1968-1976) BMW has always been high among the list of luxury sedans right? Which car gave the BMW its place as a maker of luxury compact sports sedans, but the BMW 2002? It has a light body shell, excellent build and a maneuverable size. The car would cost you anywhere from $2000 to $22,000.
Alfa Romeo Giulia GT Coupe. The Guilia Sprint Coupe (1963-1976) was the worthy successor of the famous Giuiletta Sprint Coupe. Small, beautiful and attractive, the cars were very popular when they were in production and are popular and worthy of use still. The Giulia GT coupes would cost you anywhere from $3,000 to $25,000.
- Jaguar Mk2. The Jaguar Mark 2 of the sixties is probably the most famous of vintage Jaguars and is lighter and slimmer than the earlier Mark 1. You could get one in a price range of $10,000 to $25,000.
- Ford Mustang SVO. Anybody who has ever read Nancy Drew would not forget the car which made the young lady detective independent and strong. The blue Mustang. The Mustang SVO was a later, more ambitious project of Ford’s calculated to compete with BMWs. While the SVO was never as popular as the earlier V8 Mustangs, it still had a cool design. Mustang SVO will come in the range of $2000-$15,000.
- Ford Anglia 105E. Small, basic and affordable, Ford Anglia was probably the cheapest of Ford models; right alongside the Morris Minor (not Ford’s of course). The 105E was the fresh new design of Ford made to compete with its latest rivals. The fifties vintage would cost you around $8,000 plus.
