While the 1968 Shelby that sold for $302,500 grabbed the headlines of the Mecum Auction sale at the Chattanooga Motorcar Festival, there were plenty of other cars that flew under the radar.

Here are five our favorites that sold for less than $20,000.

5. 1979 Chevrolet Camaro – $18,700

While a first-gen Camaro might be out of reach, there were a few second-, third- and fourth-gen ones that sold for under $20k. This striking example has a wealth of aftermarket upgrades to make this car even faster and cooler.

4. 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Pace Car Edition Coupe – $14,300

As with the Camaro, the earlier C1 and C2 Corvettes may get the attention, but many C3 and C4 versions get overlooked. Here’s a special edition one, with only 45,000 miles.

3. 1955 Packard Patrician – $17,600

If you’re bummed about missing out on the 1953 Packard Caribbean convertible that sold in Chattanooga for $165,000, here’s another one that looks to deliver. It’s highly original and has only 29,949 miles.

2. 1989 Ford Mustang GT Convertible – $13,200

Sure, it’s not even close to a 1968 Shelby convertible, but this one can offer fun, too, with a lot less cost. Highly original. Only two owners. 45,000 miles. And, oh yeah, a 5.0-liter V8.

1. 1980 MGB Convertible – $9900

This ultra-clean example offers a great entry point in owning a British sports car. Plus, it only has 53,000 miles.
