1964 Jaguar E-Type Barn Find

1963-jaguar-e-type-barn-find

Most of us would much rather purchase a car that has been sitting in a heated garage for a few years, but there is just something cool about a real deal barn find. This 1964 Jaguar E-Type is about as “real” as they come. That isn’t always a good thing though and in this case the barn didn’t do much to protect it during the last 33 years that it has been parked. This is a highly desirable Series I car though so undoubtedly it will be saved. Bidding is already heating up at $15k with the reserve not even met! Find it here on eBay in Charlotte, North Carolina. Thanks goes to Jim S for the tip! Read more »

The Cheapest Marmon Sixteen!

1931 Marmon Sixteen

The seller of this 1931 Marmon V16 claims it is the cheapest of its kind in the entire world, but then again it is probably the roughest one too! These massive prewar machines are exceptionally rare and as the price would suggest, highly desired. I’m not sure if the seller’s claim is really the best sales tactic for a car like this, but it’s certainly an interesting strategy to take. I guess it caught my attention, but any prewar car with a V16 will do that. It is located in Apple Valley, California and appears to have been parked out in the elements here for a number of years. Find it here on eBay with an opening bid of $47k. Read more »

Which One to Buy: Willys Jeepster Showdown

Willys Jeepsters

After getting a massive response from the North Carolina find, our inbox has been overloaded with emails asking about some of the cars in the pictures. There is one car in particular that many people were interested in that left me a little surprised. It isn’t that I have anything against it, I was just surprised to receive countless emails asking about the Willys Jeepster. I have always been intrigued by the Jeepster, but never done much research into them or their story. Seeing how many people wanted to know more about it, I decided to do some studying. I was able to dig up some interesting history, as well as two Jeepsters that are for sale right now! Both are barn finds, but one is in better condition. Take a look at each and let me know which one you would buy, but be sure to read about both before making a decision! Find the links to both auctions below. Read more »

Pre-A Project: 1955 Porsche 356 Continental

pre-a-356-project

If you want a classic to drive, get the Sprite. If you want a classic as an investment, get this. It is a pre-A 356 and although it looks bad in the photos, there is actually a lot to work with here. The paint was stripped back in the sixties by the seller’s uncle and it has sat in the family barn ever since. Things will get very expensive before it is all said and done, but the end result will likely be worth six figures! Find in here on eBay in Canton, Michigan. Read more »

Truckloads of Parts: 1962 Sunbeam Alpine

1962 Sunbeam Alpine S2

Buying someone else’s unfinished project can be a bit scary, but sometimes these stalled they can prove to be great buys. Obviously there are a lot of factors to consider, but this 1962 Sunbeam Alpine S2 might be one if them. This car looks to be solid, but it does have some rust. The seller has a lot of extra parts they are throwing in though. But before it can be called a true bargain, it will need a closer look and a more detailed description of what all is included. It is currently located somewhere in Maryland. The seller put their phone number in the listing, which can be found here on eBay. Read more »

Real Splity or Imposter? 1963 Corvette Project

1963 Corvette Coupe

When I first spotted this 1963 Corvette, my first thought was “Sweet a Split Window”, but after a closer inspection my feelings went from optimistic to skeptical. As you can see, there is something fishy going on with the roof. Over the past decade, the one year only split window Corvette has become rather valuable. As the value of classics like this go up, so do the lengths at which some will go to replicate and clone them. I’m not sure if that is what is going on here, as the VIN matches up with a split window coupe, but it if it turns out to be the real deal it is certainly worth a closer look. Find it here on eBay in New York. Read more »

1-of-135: 1963 Ford Falcon Ranchero

Rare 1963 Ranchero

When I first glanced at this 1963 Ranchero, I didn’t give it much thought. Ford built a ton of them and this one looked rough to boot, so I didn’t see any reason to feature it here on the site. Well, for some reason I went back and read the seller’s description. They mentioned that it is rare. We are talking about a Ranchero here, right? Then I read that this one is equipped with a 260 V8 and a 4-speed manual. Hmm, now we are talking! Maybe there is something worthwhile here after all… Find it here on eBay in Palm Desert, California with bidding starting at $1,800 and a recently lowered BIN of $2,500. Thanks for the tip Jim S!

Coca-Cola Mustang Mystery

coca-cola-1966-mustang

When Jim S sent in the link to this 1966 Mustang, we saw the condition of the car and almost clicked back immediately. The mention of Coca-Cola in the auction title caught our eye though so we continued to read. The seller doesn’t provide much information in their description, but there are some photos of a door tag with the name “Coca-Cola Bottling Co.” engraved on it. That seemed interesting so we did some digging and came up with a little history. Find the car here on eBay in Westfield, Indiana with bidding starting at $1,200 with no reserve. Thanks for the tip Jim! Read more »

No Risk No Reward: 1957 Jaguar XK150

1957 Jaguar XK 150

The Jaguar XK series is one of the most iconic British sports cars of all time. These cars have always been desirable, but in recent times they have begun to climb in value massively. Buying even a cheaper project car can be a big gamble. There are so many unknown factors that could break the bank. When buying a car like this 1957 Jaguar XK 150 Roadster, you want to know as much about it and what pieces are and aren’t there as possible before putting out any cash. The seller of this one has it listed here on eBay and admits that some parts are missing, although they don’t know for sure all of what is missing. What they do know is that the previous owner had planned to restore it, but after getting it pulled apart they never finished. It has been in pieces for the past 20 years, so it’s hard to say what all is lost. Like they say though, the greater the risk, the greater the reward. Read more »
