There’s something to be said about a car made with good ol’ American ingenuity. Even though creating an automotive icon is no small feat, the United States of America has no problem pumping them out regularly. That’s why your challenge today is to find the best American cars on eBay for less than a $10k budget. Fire up the grill, this is gonna be good.

Here are the rules:

  • One entry per post.
  • Cars must have a realistic selling price under $10,000.
  • Cars must be operable/easily restored to running condition.
  • Completed and sold listings can be included.
  • You can add modifications, as long as it doesn’t go over the total budget.
  • Write a short reason why your car is the best American car for less than $10,000.

Start here and find a car that would also come with a year’s supply of bacon-infused apple pie.


Tavarish is the founder of APiDA Online and writes and makes videos about buying and selling cool cars on the internet. He owns the world’s cheapest Mercedes S-Class, a graffiti-bombed Lexus, and he’s the only Jalopnik author that has never driven a Miata. He also has a real name that he didn’t feel was journalist-y enough so he used a pen name and this was the best he could do.
