1960 Chrysler 300F

Cutting Edge: 1960 Chrysler 300F

Some classic cars were so ahead of their time that when we look at them today it is almost incredible to think a car that's 50+ years old could have technology that seems cutting edge even today. As I look at this 1960 Chrysler 300F I'm astonished by its style and some of the equipment it came with from the factory, many of the features are common place in modern cars, but just 10 years ago would have been features only found in high end luxury vehicles. It sadly has been parked in a field for the past 6 years and will need a complete restoration. There are only 270 of these known to exist, so hopefully someone will save it. Find it here on eBay in San Jose, California with an opening bid of $11k. Read more »

1970 Mustang Boss 429

A Day Late: 1970 Mustang KK 429

Yesterday morning I received an email about a 1970 Mustang that had just purchased. The new owner had found it the day before, pulled it home, and decided to find a new home for it with someone who could restore it. Just hours prior to emailing us, they threw it on eBay just to see if there would be any interest. Well before I even had a chance to email them back, the eBay listing had ended. Now I'm the curious type, so I wanted to know why a rusted out Mustang that clearly has been neglected would sell so fast. It wasn't that the car was being offered for an incredible price or that it had any desirable parts left on it. It sold so fast because it is an incredibly desirable KK code car, which is also known as the Boss 429 NASCAR. If you'd like to see the original listing, find it Read more »

1967 Chrysler Mobile Director

Executive Suite: 1967 Imperial Mobile Director

One of my favorite things to do is collect vintage accessories. Obviously, I’m biased towards BMW parts, but I still grab nifty baubles as I see them if for no other reason than to save them from being scrapped with the rest of the hulk of a junkyard car. From CB radios to Becker head-units, or sheepskin seat covers and retro license plate frames, I like holding onto vestiges of automotive options catalogs. That’s why the Chrysler Imperial Mobile Director is one of my favorite Mopar products, and how it’s hard to not jump on the first flight to Tennessee and buy this long-hidden ’67 Imperial listed here on craigslist for an undisclosed sum.

1961 Devin Special

Beauty On A Budget: 1961 Devin Special

It usually isn't too difficult for a seller to list the make and model of the car they are selling, but once in a while I can make an exception for a seller not knowing the exact model of their car. This Devin is one of those few exceptions, as the title won't denote what model it is and I doubt there is a VIN plate or some other type of identification tag. Thankfully, we have featured a number of Devins over the years so identifying the model was as simple as comparing the seller's poor quality photos to a few of the other Devins we have featured in the past. After some careful examination, I believe this to be a Devin Special. Find it here on craigslist in Graham, Washington for $6,500. Read more »

1954 Chevy 210 Wagon

Fleet Of Finds In Modesto California

As Josh related in a recent post, vintage car finds can be loners or come in groups. There’s a very large assemblage of them for sale here on craigslist in Modesto, California that was brought to our attention by Gary E. I think there’s something for just about everyone in this ad! Maybe this 1954 Chevrolet 210 wagon with vintage California license plates trips your trigger? Read more »

1930 Ford Model A Mail Car

Special Delivery: 1930 Ford Model A

As those of us in the northeast hunker down for quite the winter blast, it seemed fitting to write up a vehicle that was designed to withstand the harshest of climates and terrains. I’ve noticed this oddball 1930 Ford Model A kicking around the internet for a while now (we even did a short feature on it here several years ago), and I fear it falls into a category of vehicles that is almost like a purgatory for the truly unusual and noteworthy. It was converted into a high-riding mail truck to traverse the rugged terrain of rural Montana, and still wears its utilitarian charm proudly. But will it ever find a buyer? Check it out here on eBay in Bozeman, Montana, with bidding a tick above $5,000. Thanks to Barn Finds reader Mike B for sending this Read more »

1960 Ford Falcon

A Falcon, A Bronco, And An Airstream

The barn find is an unusual animal. Most creatures tend to be found either in large groups or as solitary individuals. Barn finds on the other hand seem to have no preference for sociability. They might be found as a single individual or in vast congregations, although they do seem to have a slight preference for smaller groups. This "family" (if you will) of barn finds were all pulled from the same old barn, but they come in markedly different forms. We have this 1960 Ford Falcon Futura, a 1974 Ford Bronco, and the most unusual of finds a 1966 Airstream Camper. They are each being offered in separate listing, but you can find the Falcon here on eBay in Winnetka, Illinois with bidding Read more »

1965 Buick Riviera

Open Your Eyes: 1965 Buick Riviera

I don’t claim to be much of a hot-rodder, but one of my favorite car designs of all times remains to be the iconic Buick Riviera. From the hideaway headlights to a surprisingly handsome interior, I’ve always considered the first generation a stunner. There's one for sale on craigslist in Dallas for $3,595, along with a host of other classics. While I wish it had the larger 7.0 liter motor, seeing that snout poking out of a barn is hard to ignore. Check out the photos below and let us know which one you’d take home! Read more »

1957 Ford Ranchero

It’s A Car! It’s A Truck! It’s A 1957 Ford Ranchero!

Normally I check out the local craigslist ads at least once a day. Unfortunately I didn’t get my daily craigslist fix in as early as usual, so I didn't spot this find as early as I would have liked to and I’m sure it has a new home by now. I’m planning on calling the seller shortly just in case it is still around. As I write this article, this 1957 Ford Ranchero is for sale here on craigslist in Fuquay Varina, North Carolina for $1,000. And if you happen to beat me to it, I’m fine with that! Read more »

1960 Ford Fairlane Club Sedan

Two Door Sedan: 1960 Ford Fairlane Club

As I'm sure all of you know by now, when it comes to my taste in cars, I walk to the beat of my own drum. Don't get me wrong, I love many of the popular classics (think Mustangs), but I also have an appreciation for the less popular cars too. This 1960 Ford Fairlane Club Sedan isn't something you see that often and while the styling isn't the sportiest, it is definitely eye catching. The seller's listing, which can be found here on craigslist, is a bit short on information but they claim it still has its original 292 V8 and three on the tree. At just $600, this seems like it could be a good buy for anyone looking for an interesting project on a tight budget! Just be sure to swing by Mayodan, North Carolina to inspect it. Would you save this two-door sedan? Special thanks to Diavolino K for this tip! Read more »
