That Thing Got A Hemi? 1967 Dodge Monaco

We find lots of mid to late ’60s full-size Detroit iron all of the time, Fords and Chevrolets in particular. Plymouths? Not too often. How about Dodges? Nope, hardly ever. Well, it’s about time and here we go with… more»

Collection of Dodge Darts and Other Mopars

Located outdoors near Denver, Colorado is a collection of Dodge Darts and other Mopar products. They represent almost every model year between 1967-77.  Thrown in for good measure from Dodge is a Challenger, Charger, and a Coronet, plus from… more»

Baby Corvette: 1948 Crosley Almquist

Based on a Crosley convertible, the Almquist was a customized roadster with a fiberglass body. This may be a one-of-a-kind car, although if you search on Google you run across at least two of these, including the seller’s car…. more»

Will This Holden Commodore V8 Supercar Sell For $2,800,000?

While historically significant and desirable road cars continue to increase in popularity and value, this trend has translated across to racing machinery. We have seen a few historic race cars sell for significant sums in the past, but this… more»

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»

Michigan Car Collection Plus House!

While collections of cars offered for sale as a package deal aren’t rare, seldom do you see one that comes with a house. That’s the case here, though we don’t get to see the abode in the photos nor… 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»
