If the Fiats we featured earlier aren’t quite up your alley, but you still want a quirky convertible this Jeepster might be worth a look. The seller claims it is a one previous owner car that has been in barn storage for a number of years. They now have it running and driving, but they admit it needs a tune up and some work. It has some great looking patina and would make for an awesome warm weather cruiser! And with a V6 and four wheel drive, it could even be used for some off road fun too. Find it here on eBay in Los Angeles California with a BIN of $4,700. Special thanks to Jamie P for this tip!
At first glance you would think this Chevy is a rust bucket that has been parked outdoors for the past 30 years, well it might have been outside for that long (who knows?) and it is rusty, but amazingly it runs and drives. The seller claims they actually drove it to and from work everyday last summer. They’ve done some work to it to make it a driver, including converting it to 12 volt and installing a new radiator. They probably should have gone through the transmission though, as they lost 3rd gear after using it so much. I assume the lack of 3rd is why they are selling it, well that and the rust. If it really is as solid as they claim, this could be a cool driver to putt around in. I would want to get the transmission rebuilt, as it probably can’t keep up with modern traffic without all three gears. Find it here on craigslist for $3,500 in Springfield, Minnesota. Special thanks to Robert R for the tip!
It’s telling that in most of the pictures that accompany this ad, the image of the car is larger than the picture! GM’s huge front-drive coupes have captivated many folks over the years. Jay Leno even created a rear-drive version. The powertrain was used in motorhomes and mounted in the rear of Corvairs and kit cars. Yet the clean lines of the stock version still appeal the most to me, like this one located in San Andreas, California. It’s up for auction here on eBay and has not yet met reserve. Read more »
It’s fun to dream about Cobras, Superbirds, and Aston Martins, but when it comes time to actually buy a classic, most of us have to settle for something a little less extravagant. That’s where cars like this 1964 Dodge Dart GT come into play. It’s not rare or exotic, but could still make a fun project for any of us. Find it here on eBay in Dayton, Ohio where bidding starts at $500 with the option to buy it now at $3,200. Thanks goes to Jim S for tip! Read more »
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 »
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 »
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 »
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 »
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 »
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 »
