Toyota Land Cruisers are cult vehicles, and it is easy to see why. They are amazing off-road, trusted by people on the farthest flung safaris, and they have a ruggedly handsome appearance just standing still. The FJ40 model is the icon of the Toyota truck world. This jade green 1975 really looks the part. The seller...

The Porsche 911 SC (1978-1983) introduced a host of improvements over prior generation 911s.  Faster, safer, more reliable and even sexier, the SC is described by most Porsche mechanics as ‘bulletproof.’ Many were built, and plenty of those examples have turned several hundred thousand miles. Still, if you can find...

First-gen Camaros have been a dragstrip staple across the U.S. for years. Finding outdated ex-racers in need of restoration is relatively common today. What makes this one so special? The seller says it’s serial number 100001—the first production 1967 Camaro built at GM’s Norwood plant. According to the seller, this...

This 1949 Plymouth Special Deluxe Coupe is listed as an original owner car. It was well optioned to begin with, including several auxiliary lights and plenty of extra factory chrome. Today it comes across as a cool looking classic cruiser, untouched by hot rodders of any generation. The red paint may be a bit oxidized...

Jaguar’s XKE was groundbreaking in the world of sports cars. It featured flowing lines, a stout monocoque frame, a triple-SU inline six engine, and four-wheel independent suspension for a base price of around $6,000—hardly inexpensive in its day, but a bargain for the performance it provided. This ’63 XKE coupe (or...

This is said to be a real-deal Judge, one of just 6,725 built for 1969. It has $13,000 in detailed receipts for recent services to the engine, transmission, and suspension, and the seller attests that it’s fully Pontiac Historic Services-documented and can be driven anywhere without worry. The 400-ci Ram Air III V8 is...

Classic American pickups have spiked in popularity over the past few years, and GM’s 1967-1972 C/K series has been at the front of the pack. The C/Ks have attractive overall styling set off by good color combinations and a bulletproof range of straight-six, small-block, and big-block V8 engines. They were built right...

The 1963 Porsche 356B T-6 Super 90 Cabriolet  being sold here is the most affordable way into the world of convertible 356s. This relatively low-cost entry delivers the very same drive that has made the more expensive Roadster, Speedster, and later C and SC cars so popular. The car in this auction appears be be a very...

Rebuilt by a previous owner, this hard top ’68 Road Runner was originally delivered with a 383-ci V8. The “restification” (as the seller describes it) included one very powerful upgrade. The engine is now a 426 Hemi with a forged bottom end and (painted) aluminum heads. The transmission is an IHRA pro-built 727 3-speed...

Austin Healy 100-6s have been out of favor for years, as they are less powerful than the 3000s and not as sexy as the 100-4s. But they seem to be coming back into the spotlight. At a recent Barrett-Jackson auction, a white one sold for nearly $70,000. This one is in much better colors, black with a red interior and...
