1976 CitiCar

Not Quite Teslas: Pair of 1976 CitiCars

I’ll bet a lot of you think the Tesla is the first electric car marketed in the US (the one you see above isn’t it either, there were electrics available very early in the automobile’s history). The Citicar/CommutaCar was offered in various forms from 1974 to 1982; I remember seeing them advertised in magazines during that timeframe. These two, or really 1-1/2 as only one has bodywork, have found their way to sunny Youngtown, Arizona and have come up for auction here on eBay with reserve not met as I write this. Read more »

1969 Ford Thunderbird

Personal Luxury: 1969 Ford Thunderbird

At first glance, I thought the photo above was an old Ford ad, but then I realized that a few things just weren’t right for a vintage ad. For one, Ford would have never photographed their Thunderbird with a Chrysler or a BMW in the background (at least not without commenting on it). I also noticed the less than stellar condition of these cars, plus a very out of place rooster! It would seem the seller of this 1969 Ford Thunderbird just happens to have a yard full of classic cars and a few chickens. They managed to capture the scene just perfectly, making this one of the most picturesque T-Bird listings I have ever seen. Find the listing and the rest of their pictures here on eBay in Anaheim, California. Read more »

1957 Chevrolet Bel Air

1966 International Harvester

1966 International Harvester Wrecker

I have a tow vehicle and a trailer with a winch for towing home my barn finds… or the race car when it breaks, or the Triumphs when the Prince of Darkness strikes! I’m looking at this wrecker and thinking how nice it would be to be able to just hook up and go home! Typically when I need to tow a car home, it’s either in the middle of the night, or I’m tired—the last thing I want to do is get a trailer out of storage, hook up a tow vehicle and head out, then spend half an hour pulling the dead car onto the trailer and tying it down. If you feel the same way, check out this wrecker located in Holland, New York and up for auction here on eBay with no reserve and a buy-it-now of $2,995. Read more »

1949 Chevrolet Canopy Express

Patinaed Rarity: 1949 Chevrolet Canopy Express

I love finding cars that I have never seen or heard of before, but finding something new and unusual is typically rather difficult. You certainly wouldn’t think there would be many cars from a major American manufacture that hasn’t already crossed these pages, but as it turns out there are still a few American cars out there that I have neither heard or seen of. Until today, I certainly had no idea what a 1949 Chevrolet Canopy Express was, but that’s because they only built 270 or so of these specialized trucks. Find it today here on eBay with a starting bid of $5,600 and no reserve. Read more »

1971 AMC Gremlin Dragster

Estate Dragster: 1971 AMC Gremlin

Estate sales can be great places to find classic cars. Most of the cars we see that have come out of estate sales are low mileage cars with minimal wear and only in need of a good detailing. Usually these cars can best be described as granny cars, but every once in a while we spot estate finds that are just plain odd and unusual. Well this one fits both categories and then some. How can you get any odder than an AMC Gremlin? Oh I know, turn it into a wheelie popping dragster! If you’ve been wanting to fulfill all of your ’70s drag racing fantasies, you can find this 1971 Gremlin here on eBay, but you had better act fast! Read more »

1969 Dodge Charger RT

Born 2 Run: 1969 Dodge Charger R/T

If you’re a habitual Barn Finder, I’d imagine you’ve grown used to finding truly great cars but discovering they’re quite rough underneath. This, of course, is the paradox of such finds: they are left untouched but typically also unprotected, making their future as a complete car an expensive proposition. This 1969 Dodge Charger is a well-equipped factory 440 car that will take some deep pockets to restore, but there’s enough history captured in its battle scars that I think it’d be worth it, I say that with the full disclosure that I’m a bit of a sentimentalist at heart. Check it out here on eBay where bidding is at $8,300 with no reserve in sight. Read more »

1982 Buick Grand National

What’s In Alton H’s Barn?

Some of us love ’50s Italian cars, while others enjoy ’60s British Roadsters, but it would seem that reader Alton H had a passion for late ’70s and ’80s American Iron. He has amassed over cars twenty American cars ranging from Chevy Novas to Buick Grand Nationals and just about everything between. In recent years though, his interests have changed and he no longer has the time to work on these cars, so he has decide to sell everything off. If you are interest in buying his collection, send him an email here. Read more »

1970 Plymouth Superbird

Winged Warrior: 1970 Plymouth Superbird

When I got up this morning, I knew it was going to be a good day! I’m not sure if I have some type of Barn Finds sixth sense, but every once in a while I wake up knowing there is going to be a very special find that day. I wasn’t sure what it was going to be today, but I knew something special would cross my path. As I was going through user submissions, I opened an email from Jeff L about a few interesting finds. One of the links he provided took me to the holy grail of Mopars! This 1970 Plymouth Road Runner Superbird has been well cared for its entire life and other than an old respray, is claimed to be original. It is now up for grabs here on eBay, without a reserve! Special thanks to Jeff for this tip! Read more »
