Not sure if this has been mentioned or not, but if your looking for just a distortion pedal, check out the Boss DS-1..they go for around $40 and you can't get much more classic then that :-) I also agree with the Digitech RP series..I've got one of the RP-50's and its really a great pedal...although given the chance to do it over again, I'd go with the RP100 instead due to the increase in setting flexability.
Also, if you can find one, ya might want to look for a used "Ross Distortion"...I do mostly classic rock/blues stuff to and I use that pedal -a lot-. I don't think they've made them for many years, but I've seen them used in stores for around $70. Their really simple to use and have a really good tone. Lastly if your really into the Hendrix type tone, ya might want to take a look at the Electro-Harmonix "Big Muff" reissues. Not sure how much they go for now a days, but they are very authentic sounding indeed.
