When we first spotted this 1962 Austin-Healey Sprite, we assumed it was a color change done in bad taste. Well, it turns out that Austin actually churned out a few pink Sprites. The seller claims that only 50 ever left the factory wearing Dark Pink and that only 6 exist today. We’re not sure about that, but it is the first time we have ever seen an AH in this hue. This one is missing its drive-train, but is relatively solid and bidding starts at $500 here on eBay. Read more »
When I came across this 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 Country Squire, I instantly noticed that it was being offered by the same seller as the DeSoto we featured yesterday. It would seem that reader Chris N. found a small stash of cars parked in the same field in Californian and bought the whole lot. This family wagon is going to need some work, but if you’re interested in saving it, it can be found here on eBay. Read more »
Opel is a German company that has been building cars for a long time. GM runs the show so the only new Opels we see on these shores today are rebadged as Buicks. Back in the sixties and seventies you could actually buy an Opel branded car though. Their most popular offering was the GT which some have dubbed the “baby Corvette”, but they also built a few other models. If you have a thing for these cars, there is a whole slew of them listed for sale in Riverside, California. Thanks goes to reader P. Trout for the submission. Read more »
This 1961 DeSoto Adventurer is one of the last DeSotos built before the company’s demise. The brand was founded by Chrysler to compete in the highly competitive mid-price market in 1928. The company saw some success, but couldn’t survive the highly aforementioned market of 1960. Reader Chris N. discovered this DeSoto in a field in California. After owning it for the past two years, he has decided to part ways with it so it can now be found here on eBay. Read more »
Reader James A. just found this MG Magnette that the seller claims will be crushed if not sold soon. He thought someone here might want to save it, even if it’s just for parts. These are rather rare here in the States, so there surely has to be someone out there that who sees some potential here. It can be found here on craigslist in Columbia, South Carolina with an asking price of $650. A special thanks goes to James for the tip. Read more »
This 1946 Ford Super Deluxe Club Convertible is a rolling chassis without a title, but the price makes it tempting. These originally came with Ford’s 100hp Flathead V8 and were quite handsome cruisers. Since this one is obviously a project we would probably go with a hot rod theme and shove something a little more modern under the hood. If it’s good enough for Tim Allen, it’s good enough for us. Find it here on craigslist in St. Louis for $3,900 obo. A special thanks goes to Scot C. for the tip.
UPDATE: Turns out that this is one is actually a Roadster!
This could be your chance to pick up a 356 convertible project on the cheap. This one was seized by the IRS after the owner failed to pay their taxes. The only problem is that most of the car is missing, including the engine. The auction will be held in Kuna, Idaho on Thursday with a minimum bid of $6,000. It would take a lot to bring it back to original, so it might be a good candidate for an outlaw build? Read more »
This 1950 Jaguar XK120 has supposedly been parked since 1969. Obviously the past owners have undertook parts of the restoration, but none have been able to finish the job. It may look rough in the photos, but it was once one of the most beautiful and fastest sports cars around. If you think you have what it takes to bring this one back to its former glory, it can be found here on craigslist in South Jersey for $34,500. Read more »
In the 1950′s Dodge was busy experimenting with engine and head designs. They produced a number of interesting new designs, but few went on to be used and even fewer lasted the test of time. One of the better designs they came out with was the Poly head V8, but it didn’t go on to see the success that the Hemi did. This 1956 Dodge Coronet Lancer is powered by one of these Poly V8s and is a solid driver. Take a look at it here on eBay, were bidding is still low. Read more »
Restoring any car can be a time consuming and expensive venture, hence the reason there are so many unfinished projects on the market. The previous owner of this 1969 Maserati Ghibli had it for over 30 years and at some point decided to have it restored. Before the project was started, they changed their mind and undertake the task themselves. It has yet to be completed, but includes most of the parts needed to finish the job. Find it here on eBay where bidding starts at $10k. Read more »
