Classic Car Watch
Non-Muscle Cars

December 1, 2006
By Scott Lewis

Last month we looked at genuine Muscle Cars. By Muscle Cars we looked at intermediate two door sedans with big blocks. This was based on the original Muscle Car formula started by putting a 389 big block engine into a Tempest to create the GTO.

This month we are going to look at Non-Muscle Cars. From our simple definition of a Muscle car we could say that anything else is a non-muscle car. However, for the sake of this article we are going to look at the base model cars that made Muscle Cars. So, we will look at all the intermediates without big blocks, Tempest, Le Mans, Chevelle, Satellite, etc.

Some of the cars below I seriously considered slipping in last month. There were cars powered by Ford's 351 Cleveland which was mighty close to being a big block. Also, a couple of cars of vintage 1972 might be considered Muscle Cars. They have small blocks, but small blocks became standard equipment in 72. Then again, some believe that 1971 was the last year for real Muscle Cars. You be the judge. This is were we also get to slip in clones. There may be a few too many cars below. This was mainly to show how many "near" Muscle Cars are out there.

Comments: This car looks super clean. I like the body style and the A/C was a real bonus in my price range. I just plain like this car. I could see driving this car as is for a long time before making it look more like a Muscle Car. This car was priced at $14,900 when I first found it. It is still for sale at a reduced $13,900.

Comments: Here we have a clone... and a small block clone at that. But it does have the right look for a Muscle Car. I think the price is a bit high, but with working air we could just get in and drive this one.

Comments: Let me start by saying... I don't like the 71 and up Chargers. I think they were ugly compared to the 68-70 model. I thought this when I was in high school looking for my first car. I only discovered while looking at a 71 Charger in the paper that is was this ugly body style. And I thought this before Dukes of Hazzard came on TV.

Now, with that said... I like this car. And it is not the first one. My Classic Car showed a 71 Charger Super Bee (a one year only when they put the Super Bee on the Charger instead of the Coronet). I don't know why I started to like these, but I only like them when they are done right... in true factory Muscle Car style. The blackout hood is required, and this is one of the few cars with a half black vinyl roof that actually looks good. I like this car.

This is a small block car. My definition of a Muscle Car was a big block in an intermediate car. Oops. I came very close to including this car last month. Keep in mind a few points: 1) This is a 72 model. 72 was the first year that the Muscle Car really changes. Yes, 71 saw the drop in compression ratios that signified the beginning of the end of the era. But 72 saw the biggest drop in power. You couldn't get a Hemi in any car in 72. The LS6 was dropped from the Chevelle... arguably the pique of the Muscle Car era. In fact, Chevrolet allowed the 350 small block to be part of the Chevelle SS package. From 68-71 all SS equipped Chevelles were big block cars. 2) The lack of power steering and power brakes are a hint toward maximum performance in a changing world. The fact this car has air conditioning to provide comfort as power dropped is kind of cool. 3) I like it. I already said that, but it bares repeating. Sometimes you just have to go for it, and this car inspires me to want to buy it or look for other 71-72 Chargers. That's an impressive feat for a car I would never have considered a year ago.

We just have to get the price down on this one.

Comments: This guy built a web site to sell this car. It had a lot of detailed images. He also detailed the car and its history very well. This is the kind of attention to detail that I do, and it really impresses me when others do it.

Now... he is asking top dollar for a car that is not very popular. He has priced it above what NADA thinks a dealer should get for it. So I would try hard to negotiate on the sale. If I went to look at this car I would bring $13,000 in cash. No more. The idea being that even if I could pay more, I would have to come back from the Dallas area and come another day. That might be enough incentive for him to lower the price.

I love the car. I would seriously consider this if I wanted an occasional driver/show car. I don't know if I would put this into daily driver duty. If we put too much wear and tear on it its value will fall. We don't want that, especially when paying top dollar.

I really like it though.

Comments: Now here's a nice Chevelle that is not being priced way out there because it looks like an SS. They have it priced at the top of its value, but if the condition warrants it that's fine. And it fits our $15K budget easily.

Comments: Same as above... however I must admit I like this exterior color better. This car is priced higher, but I think its appearance in the pictures is better. Yet it doesn't have buckets and a console. See what color can do. I like them both, but would have a really hard time picking between them if they were on the lot at the same time. But is goes to show there are some reasonably priced cars out there if you look around.

Comments: Here is where a clone is done right. Well, right enough that they put in an SS dash. And they priced is not too far above a regular Chevelle. This is where you decide to pay a little more for the time and money to make it a clone... as apposed to those that price this at or near a real Chevelle SS.

Comments: Although this is a Gran Sport, Buick's Muscle Car, though this one is only a 350. I believe a real Muscle Car should have a big block. In my mind a Big Block starts at about 383 c.i., the size of Chrysler's big block. So this car ending up on the list of Non Muscle Cars. It seems clean and should make a good driver with air conditioning added.

Comments: White on black is an easy color combination. I used to always want white because it would make a great canvas. I don't know anymore for a Muscle Car. Black is the universal interior color, so we can feel safe leaving it black forever. This might be a worthwhile car to start with. Make sure it is numbers matching at this price. I don't know why NADA prices this so low. Maybe the 68 is that much more popular.

Comments: Now this is definitely overpriced because it is a clone. And it is not even a good clone. It doesn't have the SS dash. Anyone can put $200 worth of Year One badges on a car. But the paint is the kicker here. The pictures look very nice. If this really is a quality base coat/clear coat paint job properly wet sanded then that is worth something. But worth six grand over its NADA high retail price? The engine compartment needs serious detailing, and I suspect it will not be the greatest running car. Plus the interior needs to be finished. It has a console, so that helps. Overall I think this might be a mild project car. Clearly the exterior should be done, we just have to finish under the hood, chassis and interior. I would try offering the $11K NADA says this is worth. I would be willing to go up to $13-14K. I need a little left over to start finishing it.

Comments: We just need to add the Ram Air hood with some white stripes. This price is too high though, so get out those negotiating skills.

Comments: Hey, my first car was a 73 Gran Torino with a 351 Cleveland. But mine was not a fastback. I don't like the color, but the price is reasonable for a project car we could paint down the road.
