Finding an affordable Chevy muscle car at a reasonable price these days is a tough task indeed. But we have done a little research and come up with a list of muscle cars that fall into the affordable category. Buying wheel spacers is an easy task, finding the muscle car you want to put them on is more difficult than it should be. We can help.
There is little mystery as to why the Chevy Nova is an affordable muscle car as the value of these 1960s and 1970s economy cars have remained relatively steady for many years. There are more expensive versions, but your basic, two-door Nova is easy to find at a decent price.
The Chevy Nova was manufactured from 1962 to 1979 and made a brief and ill-fated return in 1985. This Chevy model began as the Chevy II but was granted its nameplate in 1969. The best years of the Nova were from 1963 to 1972; at least, that is our opinion.
Chevy fans have always loved their Camaro. We checked on average prices and discovered you can get a Camaro at a reasonable price, but you will have better luck looking for Camaros from the early 1970s.
We don’t recommend you get anything made after 1975 as that was the year environmental regulations went into effect. In addition, the Camaros built after 1974 weren’t the lean street machines of old.
The Chevy Caprice was a staple in the General Motors lineup for over three decades beginning in 1965. In the first year of production, Chevy sold over one million of this popular model, but in 1969, production dropped as the Caprice was losing favor to the more popular Chevy Bel Air and Impala.
If you are looking at getting a classy GM muscle car as a hobby project, you cannot go wrong in choosing a Chevy Caprice.
Any of the above Chevy models will make excellent investments at an affordable price. So grab your tools and order your wheels spacers and get started!
