The Firebird, which was developed to compete with the Ford Mustang, was highly praised for its design featuring a long bonnet and short rear deck, and its performance centered on the sporty Trans Am.
Firebird has always been a great choice for gearheads looking for an affordable classic muscle car. So whether you’re a seasoned collector or just looking to add a little extra power to your garage, these inexpensive classic muscle cars are definitely worth a look.
10/10 1993 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra – $25,000
Mustangs have always been popular, but not except in a few bad generations and model years. The Foxbodied Mustang was bad for the nameplate because it was slow and lacked the ideal muscle car design. One of the times.
But as the Fox-bodied Mustangs were reaching the end of their life in the early ’90s, Ford decided to say goodbye with a fantastic special version, the SVT Cobra. The SVT Cobra is powered by his 4.9-liter V8 that puts out 235 horsepower and is a joy to drive. For many gear enthusiasts, the SVT Cobra is his one of the best Special Edition Mustangs of all time.

The Cougar had a lot to offer, starting with an attractive Mustang-based design. Cougar can also choose the same engine as Mustang, enabling a high level of performance.
7/10 Plymouth GTX – $27,000
When asked to name the first car that comes to mind when they hear “Plymouth,” most gearheads immediately think of the Barracuda and the insane Hemicuda it spawned. However, there were other great muscle cars in the Plymouth line-up. If you want an affordable car, the GTX is the perfect choice.
Introduced in the late 60’s, the GTX was based on the Belvedere but with various styling and performance improvements to help it compete with the top dogs. I especially like the 1971 GTX because he is one of the most beautiful classic muscle cars you can buy.
6/10 Dodge Dart Demon – $23,500
The Challenger and Charger are arguably Chrysler’s greatest muscle cars ever, and that’s why they’re still around today. But Chrysler has made other decent muscle car models over the years. One of them is Dart.
Dodge introduced the Dart in the 50’s as a more affordable option. The Dart was a success and was sold in various trim levels, but the 1971 Demon was the best. The Demon was an interesting design featuring a blacked out bonnet and bonnet scoop, and under the hood was his 275 hp V8 engine that made it a pleasure to drive.

When Pontiac developed the GTO in the early ’90s and its resulting huge success, every other top automaker wanted a piece of the action. Ford quickly rolled up its sleeves and built a Mustang, and the rest is history.
The first Mustang was introduced in 1965 and was an instant hit. Everyone fell in love with its design and power, setting the Mustang to become one of Ford’s most popular models.

The Nova was in the Chevy line-up in the 1960s, but was overshadowed by the Camaro, so many gear enthusiasts didn’t love it. Those who bought it knew how good a car it was, especially the high-performance ‘SS’ version.
The SS badge has always stood for power and performance in Chevrolet models, and the Nova SS was no exception. Powerful he powered his V8 with 369 hp and was smaller and lighter than most muscle cars of the time, so it was a lot of fun to drive.
2/10 Dodge Coronet R/T – $26,000
Like the aforementioned Dart, the Coronet is another classic Dodge muscle car that continues to fly under the radar. However, that ambiguity keeps the price within reach for most gearheads, so that’s nice.
There are many generations of Coronet to choose from, but we like the fifth generation model. Introduced in the late 60’s, the 5th generation Coronet impressed gearheads with its upgraded design and power, especially the R/T trim. In the Coronet R/T, he was able to power Chrysler’s best engine of the time, the 425-horsepower Hemi V8.
