There aren't many options that will be in good-running, cosmetically-okay shape for that kind of money.

One way is to take any car you like, and look for the less-popular relations to it. You want a Camaro? Look for a Firebird (newer Firebirds are more expensive than Camaros, but the first generation is reversed...blame Smokey and the Bandit and Knight Rider). Mustang? Get yourself a Cougar.

A Dodge Dart might be a good option.

Or you could look at more modern muscle cars. (There ARE cars that revived the segment in the 80s) Fox Mustangs are that cheap. As are 2nd-4th generation Camaros. Also there's the Ford Thunderbird/Mercury Cougar/Lincoln Mark VII and Mark VIII. Grand Nationals are starting to climb in price, but there's a lot you could do with a regular Regal or Monte Carlo or Grand Prix or El Camino. One thing to remember: torque didn't take NEARLY the hit that horsepower did when emissions regulations hit.

Yes they are out there.
But don't plan on making a living off of buying them, fixing them up and reselling them.
Instead just get one for a show piece, fix it up and use it to promote yourselves as some one who can do the job.
That way you can bill for parts and labor.

True muscle cars (by definition the cars are generally from the 60's and early 70's) are generally not cheap, but if you look around enough, you can find a beater in bad shape you can buy not too expensive, and work on. Rivieras are nice cars, but harder to find. If you are just looking for cars you can buy cheap and build to go fast, then obvious choices are the later 80's, early 90's mustang LX 5.0
