1955 Jaguar XK140 MC Drophead Coupe


Jaguar XK140 MC Drophead Coupe Concours Restoration 210 hp, 3,442 cc DOHC inline six-cylinder engine  Four-speed manual transmission Independent wishbone front suspension Rear live axle with semi-elliptical springs  The XK 140 was launched at the Earls Court Motor Show in October 1954. It was essentially a re-engineered XK 120 intended specifically for the North American market—a market becoming increasingly more important to Jaguar. Nearly 90 percent of all models were sold with left-hand drive and exported stateside during the model run from 1954–1957. All three body styles of the 120 were retained with styling similar to its forerunner, but most important was a roomier cockpit. Jaguar moved the bulkhead three inches forward, affording more legroom for tall drivers. The dashboard was raised an inch to […]


1948 Tucker ’48 Sedan #1043


The story of Preston Tucker and his incredible automobile exemplifies the American entrepreneurial spirit. A man with vision and innovation brings a new car to market that is unlike its competition and shakes up the entire nation.

This combination delivered extraordinary performance for the time. 0 to 60mph was recorded at 10 seconds and a top speed of 130 miles per […]


1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS Convertible


This beautiful 1968 Camaro Convertible was the pride and joy of its previous owner. It was recently acquired from his estate. The Blue metallic paint with gloss Black rally stripes looks great.

The body is excellent. The doors close properly, have new rubber weatherstrips […]


1968 Ford M151A 4 X 4 Military Radio Jeep


In 1951 Ford Motor Company was awarded the contract to design a 1/4 ton 4×4 truck to replace the M38 and M38A1 model jeeps.

1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible


This 1967 Corvette Convertible is a beautiful, well cared for example. It has its original, “special high performance” 327/ 350hp, numbers matching engine. This engine was completely rebuilt less than 1000 miles ago and it runs absolutely fantastic. The car has manual steering and brakes and features a woodgrain steering wheel, side exhaust, and a factory style big block hood with the 327 callout on it. The car is presented in its original color of code 977, Lynndale Blue with a code 418 Teal Blue interior. Its a striking combination. This rare and desirable color was only applied to approximately 6% of the Corvettes in 1967, even fewer of these had the Teal interior. While the paint was refreshed a number of years ago, it still […]


1974 Volkswagen THING


The Volkswagen Type 181 “The Thing” was an updated version of the German military’s Type 82 Kubelwagen. Rather than using the Type 82’s mechanical setup, however, the Thing rode on a combination of a Beetle driveline and a Type II Transporter suspension. Like the rest of the VW lineup, the Type 181 placed the air-cooled, 1584-cc engine in the rear and use the motor’s 46 hp to drive the rear wheels. While the Beetle had charm, the Thing was much more utilitarian. Nary a curve on the car, it had a removable top, a folding windshield, and hose-it-out practicality. While it would never be confused for a jeep, land Rover, or Land Cruiser on the trail, it could manage to stray off the pavement, and […]


1953 MG TD Roadster


Few cars have enjoyed the popularity, or been as influential in the world of sports cars and amateur racing as the MG. MG started in 1936 with the TA, the first of the T-series cars that introduced Americans to affordable sports cars after World War II.Despite their somewhat frail appearance, the cars were durable and reliable. Their success was surprising, as they looked dramatically different from what was being produced by American manufacturers at the time. With the standard 57bhp engine, the TD was capable of speeds around 70mph, which was admirable. Performance may have been nothing to brag about, but they were still enjoyable to drive. On May 15, 1953, Britain’s Autocar magazine wrote, “The feel of the car on the road inspires confidence […]

Launched in late 1967 and produced until 1971, the Mercedes 280SE 111 Chassis Coupe and Cabriolet models offered buyers an inline-six engine fitted with a fuel injection system, offering 180hp. When the series was introduced, Road and Track Magazine said “one of the best-looking body designs to come from any German concern.” The 280SE Cabriolet’s were assembled with very low production and only 2,500 units were built for the US market. With its beautiful design and exceptional proportion, this series became an instant classic. The example offered is finished in the classic and desired color of Blau (Blue Metallic) with a beautiful Blue leather interior and matching convertible top. This awesome motorcar is a US spec model fitted with options, including factory Air Conditioning and […]

2008 Roush P51A Mustang 1 of 151


2008 Ford Mustang ROUSH P-51A 1 of 151 BUILT ONLY 900 MILES VERY RARE AND COLLECTABLE I purchased this amazing Roush P51A Mustang brand new from the Ford dealer in 2008. We often see advertisements depicting cars as “one owner” and that statement somehow omits that its been in the hands of 3 dealers since then. This is NOT the case with my Roush. I wanted the fastest, baddest Mustang I could get and this was the car to have. As you might expect this car has been kept in a perfect, climate controlled environment since delivery. It has never seen rain or even clouds, I think… I have carefully and properly maintained and looked after every aspect of the car, mechanically and cosmetically.  I […]

2002 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet


This pampered Carrera was driven less than 1100 miles a year by an avid collector and enthusiast. The triple black 911’s exterior is simply stunning and compliments the black soft top nicely. The exterior paint is deep and rich like the day it left Germany. The supple black leather is soft but firm and holds you nicely when driving. This well optioned cabriolet comes with the in dash 6 disc CD player, heated power seats, Xenons, and tiptronic paddles.

1965 Chevrolet Corvair Monza 2 Door Hardtop


The Corvair second generation arrived for model year 1965, noted for its lack of a “B” pillar and a new fully independent suspension replacing the original swing axle rear suspension. The Corvair used coil springs at each wheel.   The standard 95 hp (71 kW; 96 PS) and optional 110 hp (82 kW; 112 PS) engines were carried forward from 1964.  All engines got some of the heavy-duty internal parts from the Turbocharged engine for better durability. New refinements appeared on the 1965 redesign. A much better heater system, larger brakes borrowed from the Chevelle, a stronger differential ring gear, a Delcotron alternator (replacing the generator), and significant chassis refinements were made. This example is reported to have only 12,056 original miles and it drives, operates […]


1990 Chrysler Maserati TC Convertible


The Chrysler TC by Maserati was introduced at the 1986 Los Angeles Auto Show, ostensibly to become a 1987 model, the TC (Turbo Convertible, according to the dealer window sticker) actually didn’t appear until the 1989 model year. The concept for this luxury two-seat convertible dated back to 1984, when Chrysler bought 15.6 percent of Maserati the majority of the remaining stake belonging to De Tomaso Industries with the idea of having Maserati produce a small number of luxury cars for the Detroit automaker. 1990 was the second year of TC production only 1,900 units were built by Officine Alfieri Maserati S.p.A. in Milan. With the removable hardtop included, the no-options sticker price was $35,000, or $67,000 in today’s dollars. These special vehicles highlighted an international flare in its design, […]


1967 Shelby GT350 Fastback


1967 Shelby GT350 Fastback VIN: 02126 A Brief History: The first ever Mustangs were released by Ford on April 17, 1964. Ford anticipated selling around 100,000 models that year, but wound up selling over 400,000 combined coupes, convertibles, and fastbacks. Despite the car’s apparent popularity, most gearheads were unimpressed. Even though Ford had worked hard to disassociate the Mustang with the Ford Falcon, most buyers realized that the Mustang body was placed on top of a Falcon suspension and chassis. Without the promised performance, the Mustang was becoming a “secretary’s car,” something bought to look sporty but not actually driven in a sporty fashion. Following the release of what was deemed the first ever muscle car, the Pontiac GTO, the Mustang was fast losing popularity. […]

1972 Ford Mustang Mach 1, Custom SEMA Promotion for AMSOIL


For 2016 Amsoil decided to build a very special muscle car to commemorate their 44 years in business. They wanted a true muscle car from 1972 (the year they started in business), so they selected the legendary Ford Mach 1 Mustang. This car had to be really special so they contracted Gizmos Hot Rods out of Minnesota to build and modify the car. Here is what they did: – High Performance 351 V8 Rebuilt the stock 351 Cleveland with a myriad of special, performance components. The result was 437 HP and 428 Lb/Ft of Torque.
