In some parts of the world a classic muscle car is worth six figures. According to one man in Canada, a 1974 GMC Sprint (a version of the El Camino) is worth $120,000 on Kijiji. The GMC Sprint was born in 1971 to help bridge the gap between the truck and passenger car. It was designed on the GM “A-body,” which has also provided a home for the Chevelle SS, Oldsmobile 442, and Pontiac GTO.
However, let’s get back to that price—$120,000 is somewhere within the ball park of a used Audi R8 V10, Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1, or loaded C63 AMG Black Series. Admittedly, none of the supercars mentioned above have a swivel seat (to help you get out), which is the rare option this seller is hoping will make this 245 horsepower Sprint so valuable.
According to the NADA Guide, a super clean 1974 GMC Sprint with a 454 big block might go for as much as $14,000 (if you’re lucky). This guy must think he is very lucky.
