V12 Project: 1972 Jaguar 2+2 E-Type

It’s a sad state of affairs for this 1972 Jaguar 2+2 E-Type. It’s stated that this esteemed British tourer has been off the road for “many” years and it certainly looks like it. We cover E-Types with some amount… more»

Barn Find Targa: 1987 Jaguar XJ-SC V12

The Jaguar XJ-SC is one of those automotive curiosities that I would love to add to a collection if I had dollars to burn. It’s such an interesting car, with an overly-complex roof system that was seemingly concocted to… more»

40 Years in Storage: 1969 Aston Martin DBS

Many of us have spent time with a stalled restoration project under our care, but rarely do we forget about it to the point that it’s found languishing on a trailer 40 years later? Well, for one long-term caretaker… more»

Project Lot! 16 Land Rover Range Rover Projects

This listing is for a lot of Range Rovers, and I mean that in both noun form and as a means of measurement. The “lot” is loaded with 16 classic Land Rover Range Rover vehicles, some of which are… more»

Ready To Drive: 1987 Lotus Esprit Turbo

Time is running out for this 1987 Lotus Esprit Turbo, and the reserve remains unmet at the moment. The details look mostly right with this classic Bond car, from the black-0n-tan paint scheme to the mesh wheels that fill… more»

Rare Six-Cylinder: 1969 MGC Roadster

Although it might seem familiar at first glance, this is one of the most rare British sports cars ever to hit American shores. This 1969 MGC convertible is one of only 1,757 produced in Abingdon that year. Located in… more»

23k Miles: 1974 Lotus Europa Special

The Lotus Europa was a mid-engine GT sports car that was built between 1966-75. “Federalized” versions of the car were built for the U.S. market but lost some of their aerodynamic characteristics in the process. The Europa Special, like… more»

Barn Bike: 1970 Triumph Bonneville T120

A must-have for any seasoned motorcycle collector, this 1970 Triumph Bonneville T120 is a project bike that looks nice in the photos but is a little rough around the edges and will need work to get it back on… more»

Coach-Built Classic: 1951 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith

It isn’t every day that the opportunity presents itself to own a genuine coach-built classic, but that is what is on offer with this 1951 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith. It has been sitting for more than four decades, so returning… more»

No Reserve: 1968 Austin-Healey Sprite Mk IV

Classic British sports cars have a dedicated following, and it’s easy to see why. While they don’t possess the outright performance of a genuine muscle car, they offer an engaging driving experience and a level of maneuverability that is… more»

4.3 Vortec Swapped: 1973 Triumph Stag

This is the second V8 swapped Triumph Stag we’ve seen in the past few months, but this example is much cleaner than the last car. The Stag features a 4.3 Vortec V8 swapped in from a late model S10… more»

20 Miles And Never Registered 1963 Ford Cortina

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not very familiar with the export-only models the big U.S. automakers have shipped to various countries around the world. Ford in particular has had a prolific export-only program which included the… more»

Lotus Powered: 1973 Jensen Healey Mk I

The Jensen Healey was, at least in theory, equal to if not better in some areas as similar British cars of its era but it never quite took off as it should have. They’re somewhat rare to see today… more»

Brit with a 440: 1974 Jensen Interceptor

Jensen Interceptors are not one of the more commonly seen cars from the 1960s and 1970s, with only 7,141 sales spanning the production model years of 1966-1976. With an American powerplant (from Chrysler) to increase reliability, this unassuming British… more»

Rare V8-Powered Roadster: 1980 Triumph TR8

The Triumph TR8 is one of those cars I still yearn to own, despite having no practical reason to own one. I even have an inside line on a desirable fuel-injected TR8, but I just can’t get myself to… more»

Barn Racer: 1959 Austin-Healey Sprite

Twenty-seven is an interesting number. Not as fascinating as some, perhaps, but it is both a perfect cube– rare enough– and a number raised to itself, which is even more unusual in the broad sweep of the integers. But… more»
