5 Citroens for $3,000

storage-container-citroens

We have seen cars stored under porches, from the rafters, and even inside a grocery store, but we have never seen anything like this. Normally people stick cars in storage containers, not on top of them! These ones have been sitting for 15 years, but the seller doesn’t mention if they were in their current position that whole time. We guess it did keep them out of the dirt. The seller is hanging on to the beige wagon, but there appears to be another one included to make a grand total of 5 cars for $3,000. Find them here on craigslist out of Banks, Oregon. Just be sure to bring a forklift… Sorry, couldn’t resist. Read more »

Big Luxury Barn Find

1964-chrysler-new-yorker-barn-find

This four-door Chrysler may not look like much in the photos, but being equipped with the Salon trim package meant that this was the top-of-the-line New Yorker available from 1963-1964. The story behind it is a sad one though. The last owner passed away and left it to his wife, who has had a stroke and now needs money to pay the mounting medical bills. Her grandson has stepped in to assist with the sale and has listed the car here on craigslist. It is located in Gaston, Oregon and they are asking $2,500. Read more »

Scooby-Doo Van: 1964 Ford Econoline

Ford Econoline Van

The moment I saw this short wheel base 1964 Ford Econoline Van, I thought of the Mystery Machine. Scooby-Doo’s transportation of choice might not have had a personality like Herbie, but it was an important part of the crime solving cartoon team. Even without the ability to drive or cause mischief on its own, it is still almost as recognizable and iconic as the Love Bug. The seller admits to having bought it with the intention of creating a Mystery Machine out of it, but lost interest and has decided to let it go to a new home. After being parked in a barn for 20+ years, it can now be found here on eBay. Read more »

Mid-Sized Sleeper: AMC Rebel SST Wagon

1969 AMC Rebel SST Wagon

After posting an AMC Rambler with the interesting Twin Stick, we were a little surprised to stumble across another intriguing AMC product. This AMC Rebel doesn’t have any unusual technology, but being a station wagon that was optioned as an SST with a 290 cui V8 makes it a rather rare wagon. The original owner’s grandson started pulling it apart to repaint it, but thankfully lost interest before any damage was done to the original paint. The seller purchased it with the intent of putting it back together, but other projects have gotten in the way so they have decided to let someone else tackle it. Find it here on eBay with a BIN of $9,500. Read more »

Twin Stick: 1964 AMC Rambler 440

1964 AMC Rambler

It wasn’t the styling of this 1964 AMC Rambler, or the fact it’s a barn find, or even its original condition that grabbed our attention while surfing eBay. What did catch our eye was the unusual twin stick shifter. We hadn’t ever heard of such a thing and given that it’s an AMC, we were sure it would prove to be an interesting bit of technology. Our first thought was that this could be another take on the His/Hers shifter, but closer inspection proved that theory wrong, so we decided to do some research. Before we get into the history of the Twin Stick, take a look at this Rambler here on eBay. Read more »

Reader Finds: March 11, 2014

Reader Finds 3-11-2014

It’s been a little while since we have done a Reader Finds Recap, so we thought everyone would like to see what your fellow readers have come across over the past few days. There were a number of great finds over the weekend, but sadly they sold within hours of being posted. Thankfully, there were lots of other great submissions. With summer just around the corner, it’s time to start looking for something fun. If you’re looking for a project to work on, take a look at the Austin Healey, the Ford Maverick Sprint, or the Triumph GT6. If spring is already started for you and you’re looking for something that just needs a tune up, check out the Lotus Elan or the Corvette. For those that are into oddballs, the Chevy Vega GT Wagon and the MG 1100 might be of interest. And not to overlook the off-roaders out there, check out the Land Rover Series IIA with diesel conversion. We wouldn’t mind having all of these cars, but if we had to choose we would narrow it down to the GT6, the Vega Wagon, or the Elan. Our thanks to everyone that shared their finds with us!

Jeep Commando and “Mini Me”

Jeepster and its Mini Me

Alright, so maybe a 1957 King Midget isn’t exactly a “Mini Me” version of a 1967 Jeep Commando, but we just couldn’t help ourselves given how uncanny the resemblances are. The King Midget and the Jeepster that this Commando evolved from were introduced just a few years apart and would make for a better comparison, but these two are for sale right now and are close to the same price. Take a look at the bigger Jeep here on eBay and then take a peek at its miniature, the King Midget here on eBay. Thanks Jim S for tipping us off to the King Midget! Read more »

Flathead V8 Power: 1948 MG TC

1948 MG TC

The MG T-series has seen a variety of uses as a race and rally car. When it was introduced in 1936 it offered respectable performance, hence its appeal to racers. As time went on, the T-series saw four major evolutions, with each getting a little better than the last. This TC was a distinct improvement over previous generations and was offered by MG in several performance levels, but apparently a previous owner felt the standard MG offerings weren’t powerful enough. Its original four cylinder motor was pulled out and a flathead V8 installed in its place. The current owner found it parked in a barn and started restoring it, but is unable to finish it now. It is partially disassembled and will need to be put back together, but if it turns out to have rally history like the seller claims, it might be a great buy. Take a look at what’s already been done and what needs to be finished here on eBay. Read more »

Futuristic Micro: 1957 Goggomobil Dart

1957 Goggomobil Dart

Those of you who have been with us since the start or those of you who have spent many a late night reading our old posts might recall the first Goggomobil we ever featured. It’s interesting styling left us intrigued and ever since we have been fans of these quirky little micro cars. We’ve only come across a few of these over the years, so when we saw this 1957 Goggomobil Dart here on eBay, featuring it was a no-brainer. It was restored about 10 years ago, but has been parked since and currently isn’t running. If the TS400 wasn’t oddball enough for you, then this Dart should be! Read more »
