1955 Crosley Powered Custom Racer

What exactly is this? Well, it appears to be an interesting mash-up in the form of a custom racer powered by a 1955 Crosley CIBA engine. It’s certainly an interesting sight but a bit difficult to pinpoint as to… more»

Factory-Built: 1960 Chevrolet Corvette “Race Rat”

Who remembers the 1960s when auto manufacturers were not only actively involved in racing but would build race cars as well? This 1960 Corvette is one of ten that Chevy built, and it was produced to run at the… more»

NASCAR Remembered: 1956 Dodge Coronet D-550-1

Stock car racing the way it used to be, with actual “stock” cars like this 1956 Dodge Coronet tribute. This example is a tip of the hat to the original D-500-1 Super Stock NASCAR brawler that was a competitive… more»

Drag Racing Refugee: 1962 Chevrolet Corvette

Ouch, ouch and, more ouch is how I’d best describe this 1962 Chevrolet Corvette. Listed as a former X (experimental?) drag car project, perhaps it would be better defined as an “ex” X drag car. Whatever the case, this… more»

Hyperactive! 1965 Plymouth V100 Gasser

Gasser-style cars and trucks can be the subject of debate. While the solid front axle and nose-up stance were initially done to improve the front/rear weight balance during drag racing, it has also become a style of “tribute” cars… more»

Roll Cage Roller! 1970 Plymouth Road Runner

It’s a rough start, but this 1969 Plymouth Road Runner outside Atlanta, Georgia has more potential than some we’ve seen. With no engine or transmission, this “roller” sports a roll cage, custom-fabricated rear structure with a tubbed rear, and… more»

Rolling Racer: 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu SS

The Chevelle debuted in 1964 as Chevrolet’s new mid-size car. The public responded enthusiastically, and more than 370,000 units were produced that first year, including the reborn El Camino pickup. The Super Sport would be a series of its… more»

Pandemic Project: 1960 Elva Courier Mk II

The Elva Courier was similar to Lotus, Lola, Turner, Berkeley, and many other cars — a small and lightweight sports car based on British components. This one has been a “Covid project” for the restorer/seller and is listed for… more»

The Glass Stripper! 1961 Chevrolet Corvette

I’m not sure what a Glass Stripper is, but if this wicked-looking Corvette drag racer of the same name is any indication, I wouldn’t want to meet one in a dark alley. The 1961 Chevrolet Corvette in Highland, Michigan… more»

Done Right! 1955 Chevrolet 210 Gasser

While the seller maintains that this “gasser” based on a 1955 Chevrolet is “fun to drive”, I can’t imagine many folks putting this cool monster of a car on the street on a regular basis (feel free to disagree!)…. more»

Daily Driver? Street-Legal NASCAR Racer!

Alright, I bet the subject of a “Toyota Camry” here on Barn Finds of all places caught your attention! No, we’re not going to start featuring Camrys, Accords, and Altimas unless… they have something very special about themselves and… more»

Gasser Project: 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air

We have covered the topic of vintage gassers before but most of our subjects have a little something going on to fortify one’s interest – not as much so in the case of this 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air as… more»

Former Race Car: 1966 Ford Mustang

It’s a peculiar juxtaposition finding a stack of cordwood, indoor office chairs, and a ’66 Ford Mustang coupe languishing out in the backyard. So is this Mustang a vestige from a racing past that was discarded and forgotten, or… more»

DIY Dirt Track Racer! Modified 1929 Ford Model A
