This 1962 Norton ES2 was supposedly left behind unused when the first owner went off to Vietnam. Someone later found it, got it running, and sold it to the current owner who was going to use it in a Levi ad. Well, it never made it into the ad so they put it into this crate instead. It needs some work to be road worthy again, but it looks like a good start to a fun project and shipping should be no problem! Take a look here on eBay where bidding is at $3,300. Thanks goes to Jim S. for the submission.
While a nice shiny paint job always looks great, sometimes the dings and dents a barn find acquires from years of being parked can make for a much more interesting look. The problem with most barn finds is that the so called patina is really just rust. This 1960 Triumph TR3 on the other hand has what I would consider to be the proper amount of patina to give it character. There isn’t any rust and the paint and body tell the story of a car that has been parked for the past 40 years. This documented survivor can be found here on eBay. Read more »
We always prefer the Series 1 XKE to the later version, but we would never turn down a SII roadster if the price was right. It is hard to determine from the photos how good of a bargain this 1969 Jaguar E-Type really is, but it looks very promising. Hector V. gets credit for the find and he even went to take a look so we’re sure he can provide us with more insight. The seller is asking $16k for this one here on craigslist out of West Palm Beach, Florida. They also make mention of a S1 coupe and a XK120. Read more »
The Triumph Bonneville was one of the best selling 750cc British bikes produced. Unfortunately, Triumph went under in 1983 so the T140 represented the last of these great motorcycles. This particular one is special because it is a limited edition Silver Jubilee model which was built to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II taking the throne. It is also very original and has just been serviced so it can be enjoyed immediately. Bidding starts at $4,000 here on eBay. Read more »
Discovering a barn find is an exciting experience. Unfortunately, many people loose steam after that initial rush wears off. The car then starts the process over. This 1962 MGA is one of those cars. It was pulled out of long term storage, sold, and is now on the market once again. Hopefully the next owner will be able muster enough enthusiasm to get the job done. It was last of the MGAs so it came with disc brakes and the largest engine offered. It wasn’t as good as a twin-cam, but it was close and lot cheaper to run. In other words, it deserves to be saved. It can be found here on eBay where bidding is at $510 with no reserve.
Here is another project pair for a follower of the sacred octagon. This time we have two TAs; a green 1937 and a black 1939. They should present a challenge for even a seasoned restoration expert, but the end result will be well worth the effort. They are listed on Minneapolis’ craigslist with an asking price of $18k. Thanks goes to Mark O. for the submission.
MG will always be known for their convertible sports cars, but they also tried their hand at a few sedans. Underneath this pickup topper you will find one such example. It is a 1955 Magnette ZA and according to the craigslist ad, there are two included in the sale. The cars are located in the San Francisco Bay area and the seller is asking $2,500. Thanks goes to Robert J. for the submission.
The owner of this 1957 Triumph TR3 is no longer able to store the car in the barn it is currently parked in, as a result they are having to sell the car. They are offering it here on eBay without a reserve. It is going to be a big project, but if bidding doesn’t go crazy it could make for a fun project.
The Sprite may be best known for its “bugeye” face, but we like them because they offered consumers the driving thrills of more expensive sports cars at a much lower price. It was basically the sixties’ version of the Miata. This one has been sitting since 1981 and is need of a full restoration. Don’t worry though, it will be so easy that a girl could do it! Find this project here on eBay where bidding is currently at $270.
