1971 Datsun 521 4×4 Pickup

The seller claims that this 1971 Datsun 521 pickup is one of just 20 delivered with 4-wheel-drive. The truck has not been started in eight years, and the cylinder head is currently off, but the seller says he has “all the parts” to put it back together. It’s hard to see details inside the cramped […]

1955 Buick Super Riviera

When you think of GM’s Tri-Five cars, you tend to think of Chevrolet Bel Airs. But if you want to stand out from the crowd and still have that classic shoebox shape, you should be looking for a Buick. They featured sweepspear trim, bullet-shaped bumper pieces and mesh grille inserts. And who doesn’t love those […]

1968 Plymouth GTX

This well documented GTX shows just 18,838 miles, which are said to actual since new. It wears a shiny repaint in correct and appealing Forest Green but is otherwise an unrestored original, complete with factory trunk mat, jack, and spare.

Much maligned over the decades for their styling (and reliability), AMCs were never considered collectible, and most were just driven to death and forgotten. Today, intact examples of any AMC are rarely seen, […]

1973 BMW 2002tii

This ’73 Roundie has already met its reserve. The seller gave the car a full rotisserie restoration, down to removing the original undercoating to “expose any issues” and re-coating it in POR-15.  Very important, as rust is the biggest killer of these cars.

1971 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40

Toyota’s FJ40 has a tough-as-nails reputation. Add to that a small-block Chevrolet engine, a suspension lift, a full roll cage, and 37-inch radials, and you get a full-tilt off-road powerhouse that’ll likely keep up with any other 4×4 out on the trail. The seller of this FJ40 is quick to not that it isn’t perfect […]

1930 Ford Model A

Ford’s Model A was an extremely popular starting point for hot rodders of the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. And it was for good reason – the cars were readily available, relatively cheap, and could be modified easily thanks to a massive aftermarket parts network. They’re still a common sight at just about every cruise-in and […]
