Collection for Sale! Big American Steel and More!

Vehicular horse traders willing to visit Nicholasville, Kentucky may find a new steed among those offered in this sale of mostly-American heavy metal. The seller lost storage privileges, and you could be the winner in this clearance sale. Not all vehicles are described well or at all here on craigslist so corrections and clarifications will be appreciated in the comments below. What might be a 1964 Buick Electra convertible looks nearly ready to roll down the highway, though none of these cars are described as drivers. A missing fender skirt and possible broken antennae are the only obvious flaws on this full-sized luxury drop-top.

The 1960 Chevrolet Impala runs a 348 cid V8 and Powerglide automatic transmission. The wraparound windshield, thin pillars, and fins on this sporty Chevy suggest flight even at rest, and you can write the next chapter of its story for $9000.

An inline six-cylinder engine powers this 1964 Chevrolet Impala. That and the three-on-the-tree three speed manual made a thrifty full-sized two-door in ’64. This 36,000 mile classic can be yours for $7500.

This 1965 LeMans convertible packs a 400 cid Pontiac mill, indicating a later transplant as the 389 would have topped out the choices on this blue mid-sized ragtop that year. The asking price of $7500 wins this sibling to the GTO.

The monster 421 cid V8 powered this 1966 Pontiac Catalina 2+2, another full-sized drop-top to go along with the Electra. There’s something about a relaxed Summer drive in a six-passenger convertible that can’t be replicated by anything sold today. The seller asks $4200 for this one. Warning:  the engine sits in pieces.

An early front-wheel driver, this sharp-looking 1967? Cadillac El Dorado will certainly turn heads in traffic. Look at the shine on that pearl-white paint!

Last but likely not least in value comes this W113-era Mercedes-Benz SL. While less-than-perfect, this specimen promises to imbue extra green to the rolling Kentucky hills. Owning one has become a license to print money as prices climb. The more that today’s cars isolate us from the simple teamwork of driver and machine, working together, the more these classics serve to reconnect us with one of life’s great privileges… driving for the fun of it. Which is your favorite?

    I gotta think you’re right that it’s a ’67 Eldo, but they didn’t change much in those years, so it’s hard to tell. I do see that the ’68-’70 had a badge on the rear quarter, which this car doesn’t seem to have. Either way, it’s rockin’ awesome!

      Rex, the 1967 model is easy to identify because it has solid plates where the 1968 model has the turn signals.

    The 6-cylinder/3-speed Imala will surprise people at cars & coffee. I hope the next buyer avoids the temptation to upgrade the drivetrain.

    A 326 was as big as it got for the ’65 LeMans without the GTO option.

    The Eldorado is a ’67. ’68s had turn signals/marker lamps in the leading edges of the fenders.

    The Buick appears to have a power antenna and so it may just be partially retracted or stuck. The car looks to be in nice shape.
    Folks nearby this stash will get some nice automobiles at what appears to be fair prices. Wow

    If that ’64 ‘pala is as good as it looks it’s worth seller’s asking. If it were an SS too it would’ve been an extremely rare ‘pala today! I passed on a ’64 Bel Air wagon 6cyl/3spd OD that I could have for pocket change back in ’99 and have regretted it ever since. Last thing I’ve heard of it was it ended as a doomsday 2door wagon conversion and its drivetrain dropped in a nearby lake. Please keep the six!

    Same for the ’66 Poncho 2+2, only 6.383 were made so in ‘vert form it must have been rare even when new

    The 2+2 convertible is the rarest of the rare, if it’s a 4 speed it may be the last one
