Classic cars can be a big investment. Why not put your hard-earned money into a vehicle that has not only maintained its popularity but is reliable to drive as well? There are a number of classic cars online that are fairly inexpensive to buy and maintain that can be used as your day to day vehicle.
Below we’ve listed the 10 best classic cars to drive:
Mercedes Benz is well known for its extremely well built, reliable vehicles. They are quite famous thanks to the well-engineered automobiles that they produce. The older sibling of the E-Class models, the W123 is still one of the most popular autos still used today in parts of the world. Whether you choose a sedan, a coupe or a wagon, the W123 provides you with a classic, reliable vehicle that ranges from about $5000-$15,000.
Volkswagen Karmann Ghia
The Volkswagen is well known to most people because of the VW Beetle. While the Beetle has been wildly popular for decades, if you want a more “classic” VW, you might want to consider the Karmann Ghia. Manufactured from the mid-1950’s to the mid-1970’s, this VW is a more stylish option if you’re trying to get away from the Beetle. Not necessarily prized for its horsepower, it is a fantastic car for cruising around. A typical 1960 model can range from around $4000 to $21,000.
The Ford Mustang is a true American classic, and classic car enthusiasts love the models produced from 1964-1966. There’s a 1964 ½ model that is also widely popular but much harder to find, making it even more of a collector car. These classic Ford Mustangs drive like an American classic should, which is a good part of why they have always been so popular. You should be able to find one in good condition from around $9000 to $26,000.
1977 Fiat X19
With its frog-like shape, this Italian two-seater is a funky little car that offers a fun drive and gets around 33mpg. When the Fiat X19 first hit the market, car critics loved everything about it, especially the impressive handling and how much more expensive it looked than it actually was. You can find one from around $2,800 to $18,000.
You will be hard-pressed to find a list of classic cars that doesn’t include the Chevrolet Corvette. The classic “Vette” is one of the most iconic American cars in history, and the price reflects that. Corvettes from the 1960’s will cost you anywhere from $20,000 to $125,000 depending on condition. You can find some newer classic models from the late 1970’s and 1980’s for about $6000 to $29,000.
One of the most popular cars among baby boomers is the Ford Thunderbird, with the 1964 model being the favorite. It is also one of the most popular cars used in movies set in that time period. You can find one in good condition ranging from $4500 to $25,000.
This sleek, powerful little car will take you from 0 to 60 in 7.8 seconds, making it wildly popular among automotive critics and journalists. The fact that its power outmatches even the Porsche 911T and the Jaguar E Type keeps it popular among collectors today, and it remains in high demand. You can find one at around $15,000.
E30 BMW 3-Series
Offered on the market from 1984-1993, the E30 from the BMW 3 Series retains its elegance even today and is still loved for its smooth ride. It makes a great choice for everyday transportation and is priced between $7,000 and $15,000.
1960 Austin Mini
This mini auto from 1960 gets you the best of classic cars without the gas-guzzling. It offers razor-sharp handling, boasts an impressive 30 mpg, and is a head-turner thanks to its funky appearance. You can find one from around $9,000 to $24,000.
Last, but most certainly not least, is the Porsche 911. One of the most iconic classic cars of all time, the 911 was the successor to the famous 365. It was a much more roomy, more powerful version of its predecessor. A far cry from the powerful turbo of the more modern 911’s, it still offered 50% more power than the 356, making it a powerful car for its time.
