This Avanti was actually built after Studebaker folded. Leo Newman and Nate Altman purchased part of the original factory and set up shop. They shoved a Chevrolet 327 under the hood and named it the Avanti II. This particular example is very clean and has been owned by the seller for 22 years. They claim the car to be original and unrestored. We have our doubts about the paint, but you be the judge. Find it here on eBay out of Buffalo, New York. Read more »
Just because a car is a barn find doesn’t mean that it’s original and unmodified. We have seen a number of barn finds that were restored prior to being parked and some had even underdone the process more than once. Finding a true survivor stashed away is a special event, especially when it’s a 1966 Corvette. This ’66 Corvette was rescued from this barn in 2010 and was awarded its Bloomington Gold Survivor Certificate in 2012. This authentic survivor is now being offered here on eBay. Read more »

From 4/18/13 – We have debated the desirability of four-door classics before. Sure we would prefer the two-door version, but this 1966 Pontiac Le Mans is in such excellent condition that any car guy should consider it. It is claimed to still be wearing its original paint and interior and besides that extra set of doors, we cant find any reason not to buy it. Take a look here on eBay where a Tacoma, Washington dealer has listed it. 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 »

Find it here on eBay where bidding starts at $200. You be the judge. Read more »
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, cars aren’t built how they use to be. After 74 years, this 1939 Lincoln-Zephyr V-12 Coupe is not just running and driving, but is even still wearing its original paint and trim. The seller claims it is all original and was discovered in an old barn. It has since been cleaned up and can now be found here on eBay.
This 1935 Chevrolet 3-window coupe has just been pulled out of a barn in Gower, Missouri. The owner has rebuilt the carburetor and cleaned up the wheels, but other than that it is claimed to be all original. A bone-stock ’35 might not be the most exciting thing to drive, but solid original coupes like this are few and far between. Take a look here on eBay where the bidding starts at $5k.
Update 4/12/13 – This one has been relisted here on eBay with updated photos.
From 3/22/13 – A light pink Mercury Marauder might not sound all that enticing for most, but this 1963 Mercury Marauder is a documented survivor that came from the factory with the S-55 Performance option. It was found in a barn in California, where it had been stored for 34 years. It made the trip across the country to Florida and has just recently been listed on the
