The Anti-Concours: 1918 Stutz Hot Rod

Stutz Hot Rod!

Sure wish I was at Pebble Beach right now… Back in 2011 Josh and I had the opportunity to attend many of the events that take place every August on the Monterey Peninsula. We sure had a great time. It seems that everyone else did too and they must have told all their friends about it. Hotel room prices have skyrocketed as a result so we will have to be content watching from a distance yet again this year. To honor all those fancy machines sitting on the manicured lawns this morning, I wanted to featured this 1918 Stutz. Now, this is not like any Stutz you are going to see at the concours. Some might call it a blasphemy, but I think it’s just plain cool. Find it here on eBay in Lansdale, Pennsylvania for $21,500 or best offer. Read more »

Bargain or Basket Case?: 1967 MGB

1967-mgb-driver

MGBs are easy to work on and their rack and pinion steering and slick gearbox make them fun to drive. So, when Robert J emailed us a link to this overdrive equipped 1967 MGB, we knew we had to feature it. It’s not perfect, but with a $2,850 asking price you can’t be too picky. Find it here on craigslist out of Mountain View, California. Thanks for the tip Robert! 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 »

Canadian Muscle: 1965 Acadian Beaumont L79

1965 Acadian Beaumont

We don’t often come across a car from one of the Big Three that leaves us intrigued and curious, well except for the occasional prototype that is. When we came across this 1965 Acadian Beaumont here on eBay, we were left wanting to know more about this Canadian GM. Looking at it you quickly recognize that it is based on the Chevelle, but it is different enough to pique our interest. It looks as if a Chevelle and a GTO ran off to Canada together and this is the resulting offspring. Typically a run of the mill rebadged version of a relatively common car wouldn’t interest us much more than the car it is based on, but this one is a Sport Deluxe model that was optioned with the L79 V8. There was only a handful built in ’65 with this 327 option and only 6 are still left. Read more »

Baby Mustang: 1973 Mercury Capri

1973-mercury-capri

The Mustang may have given Ford more of a sporting image when it was first released, but as time went on, it grew into more of a Clydesdale than a Pony. Luckily, Ford of Europe devised a diet plan. They built a new small rear wheel drive car that could be had with an inline-four or eventually a V6. It was badged as a Mercury Capri here in the States, but it may have been a better successor to the original pony car than the one that wore the name. This particular example is ready to go and it looks like a fun driver to us! Find the auction here on eBay where bidding is currently right under $800. Read more »

Preserved Patina: 1938 International Harvester

1938-international-truck

For most of us, pulling a great find from its resting place is half the fun. The other half is the thrill of taking it on its first drive after getting it running again. While that maiden voyage is one of our favorite parts, getting the car to the point where it is safe to drive can be a massive undertaking. So, sometimes the benefits of buying a car that someone else has already done the dirty work can outweigh the excitement of finding one and fixing it yourself. This 1938 International Harvester listed here on eBay is a good example of that. Read more »

Driver Project: 1975 Chevrolet Corvette L82

hidden-corvette

Can you spot the car in this photo? Under all that junk there is a 1975 Corvette which has been parked since 2000. It is far from perfect, but with the most powerful engine option and a manual gearbox, we think it is worth some consideration. The fact that it is offered here on eBay without a reserve is also nice. There are a few issues that need addressing though. Thanks goes to Chip Lamb for the submission!

Raffle Prize: 1968 Chevrolet Camaro

prize-1968-camaro

This 1968 Camaro was supposedly won by a lady as a raffle prize. She drove it for a while before handing it down to her daughter who used it through high school and college. The 327/3-speed is not the most desirable combination, but if it really is as original as the seller claims, this is one heck of a find. It was in storage for about 20 years before the last owner pulled it out and got it running again. There is some rust in the fenders and wheels shown are not included. Find it here on eBay out of Guthrie Center, Iowa with a BIN of $9,000. Read more »

Credit Card Classic: 1972 Triumph GT6

1972-triumph-gt6-rear

The Triumph Spitfire/GT6 is a great choice for a first time classic. The parts are dirt cheap and the engine is easy to access because of that flip up clip. Just make sure there isn’t any rust because that would take the project to a whole new level of expertise and expense. This particular 1972 Triumph GT6 looks like a good deal with many new parts, upgraded rims, and an overdrive. $2,900 takes it here on craigslist out of Stevensville Montana. Read more »
