The Most Underrated American Rides on eBay Motors; March 21st

Earlier, we looked at The Most Underrated American Cars of All Time; that also translates to very affordable classics. Read that now if you haven't already, then check out the best of the bunch, all available on eBay Motors, right now.

1970 Ford Torino GT Coupe/429 Cobra Jet
The Ford 429 Cobra Jet is one of the most revered engines from the 1960s. It sounds absolutely sinister in person, and that sound is backed up in this all-black Torino with offset white interior. If you were Starsky and Hutch's evil twin, this is the only car you'd be legally allowed to drive. [More pics...]

1967 Ford Bronco
This Bronco has been restored not for garaging, but for getting dirty. It's got a proper off-road suspension, the engine's been upgraded to Ford's venerable 351cid V8, and pretty much every surface except the paint has been coated in a special lining, so you don't have to worry about scuffing it or splashing mud everywhere. And you're gonna want to be splashing mud everywhere in this thing. [More pics...]

1966 Chevrolet Corvair Monza
This Corvair was fully restored about two years ago. It's got some traditional Chevy Yenko stripes as an homage to the car that maybe, possibly could have existed had Ralph Nader not proclaimed the car "unsafe at any speed." As a bonus, the license plate already says "UNSAFE." If you're looking for one of the most odd mainstream American cars of the sixties, this is your baby. [More pics...]

1964 Studebaker Avanti R1
This is one of the last Avantis built by Studebaker, which means it's one of the last ones built that you'd actually want to own, as later year Avantis tended to stray from the original quality. This one's got the original 240 hp V8 with only 41,000 miles on the clock, and it's fairly lightweight, since the entire car is made from fiberglass, not unlike a Corvette. Hint: Check out the headlights. [More pics...]

1987 Buick Grand National
The Buick Grand National and the GNX are basically the last of the old school American muscle car, even though they were sporting turbocharged V6s under their hoods. This one's good for 245 hp, but it has enough torque to snap your neck as you blow people's doors off. It only has 2,600 miles on the clock, and it's about as mint as you're gonna find.

1993 Cadillac Allante
With a body by the legendary Ferrari designers at Peninfarina and a solid V8 under the hood, it's the perfect highway cruising Caddy. Fun fact: the bodies were built in Italy, then flown to Detroit on a specially prepped 747 for final assembly. [More pics...]

1984 Volkswagen Rabbit GTI
What's that, you say? Volkswagen's aren't American, you say? How could it be here? This Rabbit was built at Volkswagen's Pennsylvania plant. This one's been recently restored to improve just about every aspect of performance, including lightweight carpet. Better still, they haven't altered the car's basic character, so it's still a fun-loving Rabbit... just one that's quicker than most. Seriously though, you're gonna want to check out the interior on this one. [More pics...]
