After featuring the ice racer, we knew we had to mention this Ginetta. Like the Sonett, this lightweight also has some interesting race history. It won the Grampian Television Scottish Hillclimb Championship in 1983 before the current owner imported it in 1988. They started to disassemble everything in preparation for a restoration. That obviously never happened, so it is now listed here on eBay for $4,900 obo. Read more »
Tim W. had emailed us months ago about a former ice racer that he has had sitting in his barn for the past 15 years. We never got around to featuring it, so Tim pulled it out and cleaned it up a bit before listing here on eBay with no reserve. It gets really cold up in Duluth, so he hopes to get it sold before winter sets in. Read more »
This 1960 Devin D has been parked for a number of years, under both the previous and current owner’s care. It is in need of a complete restoration, but includes a number of spare parts.

During the muscle car era, the Chevy Nova was considered a compact car and while by today’s standards it is a big car, in those days it was small compared to the other muscle cars on the street. Even though it was a compact car, that didn’t mean you couldn’t fit a big engine in it. This 1970 Chevy Nova SS was ordered with the 396 V8 and was used for racing. The current owner started restoring it, but as it often goes, life got in the way. They have pulled it out of the barn and posted it here on craigslist. Thanks goes to Mark for the tip!
This fiberglass body might look like a kit car, but it is actually a limited production sports car built in South Africa back in the 1960′s. The company, Glass Sport Motors, built between 150 and 200 of these lightweight sport cars before closing their doors in 1964. Someone began restoring this 1960 GSM Delta Convertible, but never finished it. It has been pulled from storage and is now being sold here on eBay.
After the success with the Adler, we thought we had better give this one a shot. Reader John G. contacted us quite a while ago about this aluminum race car he found. He doesn’t know much about its origins, but is confident that our readers can help him piece together the puzzle. He would also like to know who built it because it is currently titled as a Corvette kit car and he is not able to insure it in Canada. If he can prove that it was a production car, he could then get it retitled. We have included some tips from John’s own mouth below. Good luck with this one guys… Read more »

When Jack Turner founded his sports car manufacturing company in 1950, he had one goal in mind and that was to build race cars. This 1959 Turner 950S is one of only 670 cars built before the company closed its doors. The seller has pieces of its provenance, some of which dates back to when it was new. Someone started restoring it, but never finished it. The current owner has accumulated many parts for it, but has decided to part ways with it. Find it here on eBay.
The seller of this 1965 Mercury Comet claims it was found in a barn just 40 miles from the Woodburn, Oregon Drag Strip. Someone had started building it for drag racing, but never finished it. After the seller found it, they replaced the floors and got the engine running. It looks to be period correct, but will need some work to be driven or raced. It can now be found in Portland, Oregon or here on eBay.
