12. Chevrolet Camaro SS
Chevrolet introduced the Camaro a full three years after the Ford Mustang. They offered a better package and two true muscle versions, the SS 350 and SS 396. Both produced more than 300 HP. Those Camaros were among the fastest factory pony cars on the market. Chevrolet was reluctant to put bigger engines in the Camaro.
But in 1969, they produced a small number of 427 Camaros. They even built 69 examples of the ZL1 Camaro with the Corvette ZL1 engine. The regular Camaros are common and plentiful on the muscle car market, but the best looking is the 1969 model. If you choose to buy the 350 SS, expect to pay around $45,000 for decent examples.
But if you go the big block route and purchase the mighty 396 SS, expect to pay around $80,000. And, if you are planning to by a super rare ZL1 model, be ready to give close to half a million dollars.
