Later today, I'll be reviewing a rather inexpensive new convertible here on Oversteer. In the meantime, I'm rounding up some of the cheapest convertible models currently listed for sale on Autotrader. This isn't a listing of the five overall cheapest convertibles, but rather the five cheapest convertibles with certain traits as mentioned in the headings -- like "cheapest V8" or "cheapest exotic." Where possible, I went with convertibles that seem to be running and driving, and I skipped cheaper examples that need work or have body damage.

Cheapest Convertible -- 1985 Chrysler LeBaron -- $990

This 1985 Chrysler LeBaron is the cheapest running convertible on Autotrader. Offered by Williams Chevrolet Honda in Traverse City, Michigan, this LeBaron has covered just under 39,000 miles from new, and it's in unusually nice condition -- but, being a "K Car" convertible, it's still not worth much. It's finished in dark blue with a white top and a white interior, and it offers an automatic transmission and a 2.2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine -- all for just $990.

Cheapest Exotic -- 2002 Maserati Spyder -- $14,000

The cheapest "exotic" convertible listed for sale on Autotrader is this 2002 Maserati Spyder, which is listed for just $14,000. While these cars are known to have some transmission problems, this one doesn't have any issues that are disclosed in the ad -- and the low price makes it the cheapest Maserati convertible currently on the market. It's offered by a private seller in Oceanside, New York, on Long Island, and it's traveled just over 31,000 miles.

Cheapest German Luxury -- 2000 Mercedes-Benz SLK230 -- $2,995

This 2000 Mercedes-Benz SLK230 is the cheapest "German luxury car" convertible currently listed for sale on Autotrader. It's the base-level version of the first-generation SLK, which was offered throughout the late 1990s and early 2000s, and it uses a supercharged 4-cylinder engine. It's finished in red with a power-folding convertible top, and it's traveled 133,000 miles from new. It's offered by Digital Auto LLC in Lexington, Kentucky, for just $2,995.

Cheapest Rear-Wheel Drive -- 2000 Chevy Camaro -- $1,700

Many car enthusiasts prefer RWD for its improved handling over front-wheel drive -- a desirable trait in a fun, top-down sports car. This 2000 Chevy Camaro is the cheapest RWD convertible on the market, with an asking price of just $1,700. It's offered by Custom Wheels in Coral Springs, Florida, and it's traveled 160,000 miles -- and yes, unfortunately it's an automatic and a V6. Still, it's a Camaro, and it's cheap, and there's a lot of fun to be had with it.

Cheapest V8 -- 1989 Ford Mustang -- $2,990

The cheapest V8-powered convertible on Autotrader is this 1989 "Fox Body" Ford Mustang convertible, which is finished in white with an off-white top and a gray cloth interior. It's traveled nearly 200,000 miles from new, but it still boasts a desirable combination of V8 power and RWD -- though some enthusiasts may be disappointed to learn it's an automatic. It's offered for sale by Flagstaff Subaru in Flagstaff, Arizona, for $2,990.
