When they got it, it wasn’t running, but they have since gotten it going again. It still needs some work, but can be found here on eBay with a BIN of $27k. Read more »
We have featured a few of these Corvette sports wagons in the past, but this could be the nicest we have come across. The wagon conversion kit was built by a company called Greenwood and very few are known to exist today. This Corvette is also equipped with the L-82 engine option which was the high-performance version of Chevrolet’s 350. An automatic, A/C, and power steering keep things cushy. Find it here on eBay out of Mooresville, North Carolina. Bidding is just over $5k with one day left. Read more »
What boy doesn’t dream of driving a fire engine? There is just something mesmerizing about those big red trucks. This 1980 Toyota Land Cruiser might not be the type of fire engine most of us dreamt of as a kids, but I’m sure the child in all of us would love to take it for a spin. It was imported from Japan and only has about 8k miles on the odometer. It is currently in Monterey, California and can be found here on eBay. Read more »
Here is a car you don’t see anymore and some people would argue that is a good thing. Few people loved these Renaults, but we like this one. This 1971 Renault R-10 had been in dry storage for over 30 years before being pulled out and gone through. It is located in Austin, Texas and is listed for sale here on eBay. Read more »
We classify a modern car as being fuel efficient when it achieves 40 mpg, but back in the 1950′s there were companies all over the world building cars that could achieve 60 mpg or more. Sure they might have looked goofy and weren’t very fast, but at least they were somewhat fun to drive. This rare little German micro car has lots of character and should make for an interesting project. It’s a 1956 Kleinschnittger F125 and the seller has already rebuilt the mechanical systems. So before buying a Prius, check this out here on eBay. Read more »
We wouldn’t normally feature an eighties econobox, but this one is so unique we couldn’t resist. It is the North American version of the best selling Renault 5. They were praised for their practicality and a few even did well in SCCA races. It may look bland, but apparently many movie and TV studios liked this one enough to use it in a whole slew of productions. It has been parked for a while in Bellingham, Washington, but is now listed for sale here on eBay where bidding is at $760. Thanks goes to Jim S. for the submission. Read more »
Monterey auto week will be upon us before we know it and Robert J. just found the perfect coach to cruise between the events. It is a 1970 Checker Aerobus. Just imagine the looks on people’s faces when you and twelve of your friends unload in front of the clubhouse at Pebble Beach! There will be three Bugattis parked out there, but this will be the one and only Aerobus in attendance. It is already located in Monterey and the seller is threatening to scrap it if it doesn’t sell soon. Find it here on craigslist for $1,500.
Don’t get this 1965 Sabra confused with some hacked-together kit car. This is a hacked-together production car that was built by Autocars of Israel. In project car form it may not look like much, but these can be lookers when restored. The owner was going to fit a Datsun engine, but after 20 years of ownership, they have “made the Grand decision not to build it”. So, if you would like to have the Grand opportunity of finishing it, take a look at the San Diego craigslist ad where they are asking $1,500. Thanks goes to reader Mike B. for the submission.
The seller of this 1976 Toyota Corolla claims it is a one of a kind prototype. It was found in a barn, where it had sat since 1984. They have done considerable research and even contacted Toyota, who claims this car shouldn’t even exist. At first glance, it just looks like a Liftback, but the body work is more like that of a ’77 Corolla. Take a look at it here on eBay and decide for yourself if its real or if someone is just trying to pull a fast one on us.
People have debated for years about what makes a “barn find” authentic. Some believe that it has to actually come out of a wooden barn to be the real deal. Well, we have one for those purists among us. There is no denying this barn find’s pedigree. It is a 1972 Ford Big Cow truck and it has obviously just stepped out the barnyard and onto the street. Take a look at the eBay auction here where bidding starts at $15k. A special thanks goes to Jim S. for the submission.
