Cheap(ish) Mopar – One Owner 1971 Dodge Charger – $8,800

It may not be a Hemi, but it's got a V8! This 1971 Dodge Charger for sale just popped up on Craigslist near Tacoma, Washington, with the seller claiming it to be a single family car since new. This basic muscle car is a little rough around the edges and it's showing a little gray (literally, see below for the primer shots), but it'll clean up well. With cars like this going for near $30,000 in slightly better condition, I believe this here's a pretty dang good deal. Let's take a closer peek. This green Dodge Charger 500 is equipped with the 318 V8 and an automatic, possibly the same ones it left the factory with, but it doesn't say for sure. Correct me if I am wrong, but with base muscle, I believe matching numbers are less critical to value. In any case, it may not be the most excitin...

Dusty & Rusty – 1970 Plymouth Cuda – $8,900

The Plymouth Barracuda hit the market about two weeks before the Ford Mustang in 1964. While some argue that the Barracuda is the first pony car, there's a reason Ford Mustangs aren't called fish cars. Maybe it was the fact the one millionth Mustang was built within 18 months of its introduction, whereas it took almost three years for Plymouth to build just 100,000 Barracudas. Maybe. In any case, by the time that 100,000th Barracuda rolled out of the factory, America was on the verge of the muscle cars craze. Automakers scrambled to pump more horsepower out of their cars and the Barracuda became Plymouth's playing card. Just so nobody is confused, what we're highlighting here is a 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda (barely) found on Craigslist near Boston. "So don't call it a Barracuda!" all the Mopar k...

Dusty & Rusty – 1967 Dodge Coronet R/T – 440 & 4 speed – $8,500

The ever increasing popularity of muscle cars has made getting into the hobby with anything from 1964-1972 powered by a V8 a fairly expensive endeavor. Enter this 1967 Dodge Coronet "R/T" listed on Craigslist in Judsonia, Arkansas. The base price for a 1967 Coronet when it was new was $2,594, which is a hair over $20K in 2020 dollars. At $8,500, this Coronet is essentially priced as a used car in need of a little TLC. It looks like one too, take that how you want. We'll take a closer look, but first some brief history of the Dodge Coronet. The Coronet name was introduced in 1949 as the top trim line for Dodges. By 1955, it represented the cheapest cars from the brand. The name was put to pasture following 1959, only to be resurrected in 1965 as a mid sized car. By 1967 there were fou...
