1965 Shelby Cobra replica

Want snarling V8 performance, megaphone sidepipe exhaust, and sleek curves that’ll turn heads anywhere? You should be looking at a Cobra. And if you don’t have $400k+ for an original 289 roadster (or $600k+ for an original 427 roadster), you’re in luck, because replicas can give you nearly the same experience for a tenth of […]

1971 Datsun 240Z

Looking for an affordable vintage sports car you can drive regularly? This ’71 240Z could be just the ticket. It looks great in red over black and appears to be clean from top to bottom.

1967 Dodge Coronet R/T

Looking for some Mopar muscle? Want something classier than the bare-bones rubber-mat Road Runner or Super Bee? This red and white Coronet R/T could be your car.

But the underpinnings are strong, and the cars actually hold up well, even in the hands of James Bond. He used a yellow one like this to escape captors in […]

1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL convertible

The 280SL was always more of a wine & cheese picnic-mobile than a hard-cornering rally car. The “Pagodas” offered the fun of two-seat open-top motoring with the luxurious conveniences of a larger car, like wood grain on the dash, leg room underneath, usable trunk space, and a soft, forgiving suspension. 1971 280SLs, like the one […]

1957 Ford Country Sedan Wagon

This ’57 Ford Country Sedan Wagon has “not a speck of rust or filler anywhere” and “absolutely, positively no known mechanical issues.” The confident seller describes the body as “laser straight,” chrome and trim as “virtually perfect,” and glass as “original and perfect.” Station wagons in the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s were just cars—they were […]

1960 Chevrolet Impala 2-dr hard top

This ’60 Impala bubble top is a fishbowl on wheels. It has a panoramic 360 degrees of visibility, made possible by roof pillars so narrow that you’ll have to squint to see them. The squared-off trunk fins are less ridiculous than the swoopy bat wings adorning the 1959 version, and they give the car a […]
