1966 Volkswagen Bus

1966 VW 15-Window: Hippie Bus

Kudos to the seller for picturing this relatively boxy vehicle next to a shipping containers (and including a set of decent photos and offering videos!) No, this isn’t one of the hyper-expensive 23-window versions, but those extra 8 windows sure come at a premium! This bus is located in Long Beach, California, (where the seller invites email inquiries for a full set of pictures and video) and is offered here on eBay with an opening bid of $5,000 and no reserve.

1962 Ford F-100

1962 Ford F100 For $1,750

This Ford F100 might not be in the best of condition, but it currently runs and drives! To make things even better, the seller is asking just $1,750. It does have some rust issues, but for this kind of money a few issues are to be expected. For a vehicle you could put to use right away, this seems like a great buy. Of course I would want to inspect the chassis for any serious structural issues, remember ’61 through ’63 these trucks were a unibody design. If the main structure is solid, this could be a great buy for a rolling project. If you are interested in owning this rather rare truck, you can find it here on eBay in Turbeville, South Carolina. Thanks go to Jim S for another great tip!

1951 Ford F1

1951 Ford F1: Ready For Duty

While it’s fun to bring an old vehicle back to the road, there is something to be said about buying one that is already running. This Ford F1 had been in barn storage for at least the past 15 years. After finding it, the seller decided to get it back on the road. It had obviously had some work done to it by a previous owner, such as the installation of a later model V8. Since it wasn’t original, they decided to install some new components. They upgraded the front brakes to discs, which should improve braking massively. They also installed a new wiring harness, new GPS speedometer, new lights, electric window wipers, new seat belts, and all the other parts one would typically change during a full tune up. If you’ve been looking for a barn find truck that is ready to enjoy, this one might be worth a closer look at! You can find it here on eBay in Marion, Indiana where bidding has already passed $9k.

1979 Ford Fiesta

1979 Ford Fiesta: Pint-Sized Party

I know Ford’s smallest econo car isn’t for everyone, but for whatever reason I keep finding myself wanting a vintage Fiesta! Sure a Mustang would be faster and possibly even more fun, but for the money you just can’t beat a Fiesta. And to be honest, some of the funnest cars I have ever driven were underpowered and wouldn’t ever be described as striking to look at, but when you’re in the driver’s seat all that really matters is handling and the feeling of speed. This bright orange example here on eBay looks good in this color and would be a blast to take through some twisties. The seller claims it already runs and drives, but will need a tune up and some work. It is also going to need some body and paint work to fix some poorly done past repairs. At just $1,500 this could make for a great little driver or possibly a Lemons racer! So would you make this a DD or would it best be used as a low budget race car?

BMW 2002s

Bimmerfest: A Bunch Of BMW 2002s

We noticed that there were four 2002’s that were listed on eBay today, and since we had a recent request for one, we thought we’d give you a choice! First up is this slightly rusty 1976 is located in New Orleans, Louisiana, and is listed here on eBay for $3,500 with reserve not met. Although it’s not a desirable “round taillight” version, it does appear fairly solid, is a daily driver with some quirks, and appears to be offered by a knowledgeable seller.

1969 Jeepster

1969 Jeepster: Droptop Off Roader

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!

1937 Chevrolet

1937 Chevrolet Sedan: Rough But Running

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!

1966 Oldsmobile Toronado

1966 Oldsmobile Toronado: Futuristic Front-Driver

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 »


Credit Card Classic: 1964 Dodge Dart GT

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 »

Stutz Hot Rod!

The Anti-Concours: 1918 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

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 »

1964 AMC Rambler

Twin Stick: 1964 AMC Rambler 440

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 »
