We want to love this 1968 Shelby GT500KR. It is a Shelby for goodness sake! It has even been in the hands of the second owner since 1983. Still, there are some red flags here. A respray to cover repaired body damage and a badly running mismatched engine are all strikes against it. If it were 2006, the $90k asking price here on eBay might be realistic, but not in today’s market. Read more »
When it comes to patina, the dry hot sun of Arizona produces some of the best. This 1952 Ford F3 was parked out in the heat for many years. The owner at the time claimed it ran when they parked it, so the seller bought it and towed it home. After a little work, they had it up and running again. They have since listed it here on eBay.

Volvo has been known for their wagons since they came out with the Duett, but the best looking of these Swedish haulers has to be the 1800ES. The sleek lines and unique hatch have even provided inspiration for more recent models. Clean examples can be pricy though, so this package deal sounds like a bargain at $5,500. They both are drivers, but obviously need some work. Find them here on craigslist out of Portland, Oregon.
Reader P. Trout sent in this 1957 Chevrolet 210 Handyman, which the seller claims is original. While there are some obvious changes, such as the ride height and wheels, it’s hard to tell what else might have been changed. The seller is asking $12,500 for this wagon and it can be found here on Craigslist. Read more »
This 1964 Corvette Convertible had been sitting for over 20 years. The seller has since pulled it out of storage and replaced a few parts to make it drivable. It is now running, has a new top, and a clean interior. The frame is claimed to be solid, so we would probably just go through the suspension and drive it as is. It would be a great candidate for restoration, but we personally like the current look. Find it here on eBay out of Kingston, New York. Read more »
This 1966 Mustang was once a garage find, but has since been returned to active duty. The owner tried to keep as much of the car as original as possible while still replacing the items that just weren’t worth saving. It’s not perfect, but the A code 289, four-speed tranny, and deluxe Pony interior should make it an entertaining driver. You could find a more original Mustang, but if you actually want to drive it, we think this could be a good buy. Bidding starts at $5,000 here on eBay out of Fortuna, California. Read more »
What’s really in a name? In the automotive world, the badge a car wears can completely change its image. Take this beautifully styled Karmann Ghia, which isn’t all that much different than a Porsche, but isn’t nearly as valuable. Sure there are differences, but are they worth such a huge jump in value? This running and driving estate find is being offered here on the Samba with an asking price of $3,400.
After the 21 window project we featured sold for a jaw-dropping $25k, we had to mention this one that came to market yesterday. It is a 1965 21 window and although it is far from perfect, it does run. There is some rust, but it looks like a deal at $24k when compared the bus from the other day. It is located in Quebec, Canada and is listed for sale here on TheSamba.
When people think of lightweight, they think Lotus. But, we would like to present another contender for the crown of lightness. Ginetta has been around since the fifties and has built some pretty sprightly cars themselves. This is a 1973 Ginetta G15 and you can find it here on eBay where bidding starts at $9,500. Read more »
