When it comes to British Sport Cars, there are few as iconic as the Jaguar E-Type. It has all the characteristics that make for a great sports car, good handling, lots of power, and fantastic styling. This 1969 Jaguar E-Type Convertible has been in storage for the past 25 years and has weathered them well. It is located in Long Branch, New Jersey and has been listed here on eBay. Read more »
We had to mention this 1970 Fiat 850 Spider because it appears to be the car that is tucked in the corner of the barn full of Brits we featured back in January. The car requires a complete restoration and that may not make sense financially, but it is a dry Arizona car so it may be worth saving. Find it here on eBay where bidding is currently at $540 with no reserve. Thanks goes to Jim S. for sending this in.
If this E-Type looks familiar to you, then you might have a copy of our 2013 calendar hanging on your garage wall. This 1963 Jaguar XKE was February’s featured find and there is a good story behind it. The guys over at Luxury Brokers International dug this one up in Philadelphia. Read the tale in their own words below. Read more »
If you wanted a Corvair back in the sixties, but needed more hauling capacity, you could have always bought a Corvair truck. The Loadside was the entry level truck, but there was also a special Rampside model available. This 1961 Corvair is one of those unique Rampsides and is listed for sale here on craigslist out of Gifford, Illonois with an asking price of $1,200. Thanks goes to facebook follower Tim M. for notifying us of this one. Read more »
If you thought the Corvair barn find from the other day was impressive, then you should take a look at this. Unfortunately, these ones are sitting outside, but there are quite a few vans and trucks in the mix. The seller has listed the whole lot on eBay for their neighbor and bidding starts at $200. They are located in Newberry Springs, California and there appears to be a few other cars littered amongst the Corvairs. Take a look at the photos below and let us know which ones you would want to bring back from the dead. A special thanks goes to Jim S. for sending these our way. Read more »
If you like the idea of a British roadster with American V8 power, then a Tiger may be the car for you. As Cobras become more unattainable by the day, these Shelby designed Sunbeams still look like a bargain. This particular example is claimed to be part of a large collection that is being liquidated. It is in Maryland and is currently listed for sale here on eBay where bidding is as brisk as the car itself. Thanks goes to Donald C. for the submission. Read more »
As values of two-door classics continue to rise, we can help but wonder if their four-door variants are just around the corner. I was always taught to shun the four-door equipped version of most any car, but they do present the best bargains in the classic car world today. Sure, they are not as good looking, but they do offer more function at a fraction of the price. Take this 1968 Chrysler Newport for example. 383 equipped with 70k miles and only two owners for $2,500 in Sunnyvale, California. Read more »
We featured these Messerschmitt Bubble Top projects back in November when they were listed on Craigslist. They are now being offered for sale again, but this time they can be found here on eBay. The seller was asking $20K the first time they had them for sale, but hopefully they have lowered their price this time around, as these two 1955 Messerschmitt micro cars are in rough shape.

While going about his business on a garbage route, reader John P. stumbled across this unique little car. It looks like a kit car, but after doing a little research, we found out that it was actually a production car that was also offered as a kit. Few were made, but they were actually very interesting automobiles. So, can you identify it? We will run an update after everyone leaves their guess in the comments below. Good luck!
UPDATE - Well, our readers guessed it in a matter of minutes! We have added a closeup of the hood emblem and you can read more about these unique cars below. Read more »
