Green Dream Machine: 1954 Kaiser Darrin Roadster

I’m not sure what the story is behind the paint selection on this rare 1954 Kaiser Darrin (you’re looking at #88 of only 435 ever produced), but it looks gorgeous. Although Darrins weren’t offered in this particular shade of green… more»

30K-Miles: 1951 Kaiser DeLuxe W/ Original Paint

This 1951 Kaiser Deluxe two-door sedan is still wearing its original paint, according to the seller. That’s amazing after over seven decades, but even more so, they also say that the interior is original after 71 years! They have… more»

Only 435 Built! 1954 Kaiser Darrin

Have you ever seen one of these? I’ve only seen one up-close-and-personal at Das Awkscht Fescht, the big antique and classic car show held each August in Macungie, PA. It was white with a red interior just like this… more»

Custom Sports Car: 1952 Kaiser Henry J

Too Many Setbacks? 1952 Kaiser Henry J

This may be the first Kaiser Henry J that I have stumbled across that hasn’t been hot-rodded, and this 1952 example barely escaped that fate. Always popular on the dragstrip in gasser form, it’s nice to find one as… more»

Supercharged 1 of 44? 1955 Kaiser Manhattan

The 1955 model year would be the last for Kaiser automobiles made in the U.S. (they would continue building Willys Jeeps here). The Manhattan was their top-of-the-line car and it had a supercharger as standard equipment by 1954. This… more»

46k Original Miles: 1951 Kaiser Special 2-Door
