1974 Ford Falcon XB Ute

This Australian Falcon XB looks like a cross between a Dodge Challenger and a Ford Ranchero from the early 1970s. Functionally, it’s a lot like an El Camino or Ranchero. But in Australia, performance-oriented Utes like this are coveted, and they’re ultra rare in this country. So if you’re looking to turn some heads while […]

1970 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

by   in Listings

Luxo-barge or muscle car? Chevrolet’s first-generation Monte Carlo has a great silhouette with its long nose and short decklid. Its aim was always luxury first, but when fitted with a 402- or 454-ci big block, the Monte became a heavily-optioned muscle car. Just the thing for getting to the marina on time. This black 1970 […]

1959 Toyota FJ25

This 1959 Land Cruiser is an extremely rare FJ25, predecessor to the more familiar FJ40. It wears an unfortunate shiny repaint in a non-stock color, but we are blown away by the intact original mechanicals, not to mention the stock wheels, hubcaps and uncut fenders. Check out the photos of the glass cup fuel filter […]

2012 Think City

It’s wonderful, and sad, to see the Think City electric car show up on eBay. I had a blast driving the Think City for a week last summer for a review in the New York Times. The funky small EV—a full two feet longer than a Smart car—has body panels made of scratch-resistant plastic. That’s […]

by   in Listings

This classic Beetle is a 2004 model-year car, built in Mexico—the Bug’s final year worldwide. The pan, tunnel and VIN from a 1964 donor car were used to get it legally titled here in the states. For the majority of us who haven’t experienced post-1970s Bugs, the combination of vintage Beetle styling on the outside […]

1957 Ford F-350 4×4

NAPCO four-wheel-drive truck conversions from the 1950s aren’t particularly common these days, but even less common is a NAPCO 1957 Ford F-350. If you’re looking for an interesting restoration project, this could be your truck. It’s an ex-fire company truck from Mount Lodge Fire Co in New York, according to the seller. Why is it […]

1966 Dodge Charger

by   in Listings

This first-year Charger looks like an impressively original car with some extremely desirable performance options. It recently had a professional rebuild of  the engine, trans, brakes, front end and steering, and it looked like a great deal when we spotted it under $9k without reserve. It’s a straight, dry California car, still wearing black plates, three […]
