4 Muscle Cars for Sale on Craigslist under $5,000

By Cody Clark

No matter what kind of car you’re looking for, there will always be one that is hacked apart beyond all measure. Most will rot in driveways because they’re not interesting enough to sell or build back. Finding muscle cars for sale on Craigslist, at least ones worth pursuing, can take some time, but these cars once had plenty of power and appear to have some life left. Better yet, they can be snagged for a reasonable price.

1970 Buick Skylark for sale

This 1970 Buick Skylark is available for $4,500 in Kitsap County, WA and  has faced a rash of bad luck ever since the seller bought it. From damage at the mechanic to scary engine noises, this Skylark needs some patience and gold flaked paint to be daily ready. Once you listen to that 455 purr without a catastrophic rod knock it will all be worth it.

1966 Ford Mustang for sale

Needs a new rear quarter and everything else. This 1966 Mustang has been thoroughly sandblasted by Las Vegas desert and is available for $3,500. If you can cough up extra money, the seller will add an engine and transmission to the deal. What isn’t on offer is a seat with actual fabric over the ass part.

Camaro race car for sale

This second-gen Camaro is described as a race car but really it’s more the idea of a race car. What is worthwhile about this listing is the huge list of parts the seller has available to make this neighborhood eyesore move. Could we be so bold as to get the whole lot for $2,500? 

C3 Corvette for sale

“Whose ‘vette is that out in the driveway?” This razor sharp 1976 Corvette in Tacoma, WA comes with tasteful mods and ten coats of competition orange. With a driveline and a radiator this $4,000 bargain could really turn heads. Looks like it might need a new rear window too, but that’s a small price to pay for a cheap Corvette for sale.

With some patience, these muscle cars for sale on Craigslist could become five-figure cruisers for a bargain bin price. Power wash the birds’ nests out and enjoy.
