eBay Challenge: The Most Powerful Cars For Less Than $10,000

Illustration for article titled eBay Challenge: The Most Powerful Cars For Less Than $10,000

Absolute power corrupts absolutely - but can cheap power corrupt cheaply? This week's challenge is to find the car with the most horsepower on eBay for less than a $10,000 budget. Let's start the year off right, with a celebration of inexpensive yet satisfying tire smoke. Go!


Here are the rules:

  • Selections aren't limited to simply 'cars' (kit cars, trucks, and military/commercial vehicles included)
  • 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 has the most horsepower for less than $10,000.

Now go find a car that launches the Earth backwards as its main mode of propulsion.

I'll arrange the best selections afterwards. You have until the end of the weekend.

1972 Peterbilt 359.

425 horsepower, ~1500 ft lbs torque. 15 speeds, 3 pedals, 100% epic.

If that one goes over $10,000, here's my alternate:

1978 Kenworth K100 Cabover, with a Cummins KT1150, 450 horsepower diesel.
