This blindingly turquoise Daytona is claimed to be one of just three born in code Q5 paint. The color is loud and proud, just right for a Daytona, and the white sail sets it off perfectly.  The extra long options list includes six-way driver’s seat, console, tachometer, sport steering wheel and more. “All...

This 1961 Opel Rekord arrives on eBay Motors just in time for those of you seeking something obscure to work on over the coming winter months. Despite a disconnected generator and starter, the seller says, “It is guaranteed to run.” The clutch is “good,” the brakes are “great” and the tires are “decent.” Some...

This 1940 Mercury Eight is said to have originally been a sheriff car for Charlevoix County in Michigan. A vintage bullet-shaped light and siren combo sits atop the roof and a police radio is nestled below the dash. Ford’s famous 239-ci Flathead V8 powered a majority of their vehicles in this era. Rated at 85-hp and...

Bullet-proof reliability, comfortable driving, and not enough power to get into trouble are the hallmarks of Volvo’s 1800-series coupes, affectionately referred to as “tractor sports cars.” The pop-culture factor doesn’t hurt either, as Roger Moore drove a P1800 in the ‘60s TV drama “The Saint.” This 1968 1800S is said...

It’s tough to believe a car this clean was once a bona fide drag racer, taking its Hemi-powered competition to task a quarter-mile at a time. This 1961 Pontiac Ventura Super Duty‘s top E.T. was reportedly 12.04 at 114 mph—not bad for a mid-level Pontiac from the early-60s. It has now been restored to street-racer...

Some regard the Toronado’s styling as something only a mother could love, while others argue that it was daring and underappreciated. Regardless which camp you’re in, it is a car that will get attention. This 1970, famed for its pioneering use of front-wheel drive in a full-sized car, is offered at no reserve. The...

eBay Listing: 1976 Bricklin SV-1 Performance in American cars had jumped off the proverbial cliff by 1974, but Malcolm Bricklin had the idea to capitalize on the newfound interest in safety regulations. He smooth-talked the Canadian government into funding a factory in the province of New Brunswick to build his “safety...

This 1961 Econoline is a funky, functional rat rod of a pickup, boasting a freshly rebuilt 289 V8 with lots of upgraded bits, plus important attention paid to the rest of the mechanicals. The panels look straight, and the original paint has a beautiful worktruck patina that just can’t be faked. It’s reportedly been...

Futuristic, post-apocalypse styling and 12 cylinders of Lamborghini power earned the LM002 one of the coolest nicknames in motoring: the “Rambo Lambo.” It weighs 6,800 lbs and runs 0-60 mph in less than 8 seconds. This 1989 example is said to have over $80k in recent restoration work, $18k of which is from an engine...

FoMoCo built 680,989 Mustangs in 1965, but just 15,079 were equipped with the GT Equipment Group that first year. GT cars received manual front disc brakes, Special Handling Package, quick-ratio steering, and fog lamps. This 1965 Mustang GT fastback is said to be a true GT from the factory, not a dealer-modified car....

Dodge’s midsize Coronet could be ordered in all sorts of configurations, and that made it the ultimate sleeper — it was a hard car for the competition to judge at a stoplight, especially when fitted with the 426 Hemi, as tiny 426 badges were all that set it apart visually from its six cylinder cousins. This Coronet is...

Looking for a classy cruiser to suit your champagne tastes? This 1957 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith has gone only 55k miles. The seller claims it is a very reliable car, so there can be many more gentile jaunts in the future. To make the stately drives more pleasant, an a/c and heating system were added to the car three...

Few vehicles are as battle-tested—and revered—as military vehicles. Dodge’s M37 pickup debuted in 1951 as successor to the famous WC series of trucks used during WWII. The M37 served the military all around the world, including Vietnam, for the better part of two decades. This 1953 Dodge M37 “runs very well and starts...

The new wave of electric cars, like the Nissan LEAF and Chevy Volt, have racked up all kinds of awards for their great acceleration and luxury-level driving experience. Yet, the enduring image of electric cars for many people is this 1975 Sebring Vanguard Citicar, which currently has a top bid of $655 on eBay...

Today, Nomads are among the most sought after Tri-Five Chevys, thanks to their low production and sleek design. But that wasn’t always the case. Despite its attractive lines, the Nomad wasn’t a hot seller in 1957. It simply wasn’t as easy to use as a regular 4-dr wagon, and its 4-dr competitors tended to be a lot...

Volvo’s famous million-mile B20 engine shares its design with the less familiar 6-cylinder B30, good for 145 hp and found under the hood of the luxury-oriented 164S. With just 46k miles on this 1969 164S claimed actual since new, it’s pretty much a new car, mechanically speaking. Cosmetically, too, it looks like a...

The popularity of electric vehicles is on the rise these days, but did you know the idea of using electricity as a sole power source for automobiles is more than a century old? In fact, the Smithsonian National Museum of American History is exploring the history of the electric automobile by displaying historic EVs...

Mercury’s Comet was among the first cars to try to cash in on the sporty compact trend of the early ’60s. The S-22 trim level featured adjustable front bucket seats and plusher carpeting, and cars with the package were easily identified from other Comets thanks to six protruding taillamps. The seller of this 1963 S-22...

Mazda was still struggling to find a toe-hold in the American market in ’72, the year this RX3 was imported. They weren’t common on the road then, and over the decades, most were consumed by rust or scrapped when their rotary engines died due to improper maintenance. This one looks very well preserved for its forty...

If you were in the market for a hot Chevelle in 1969, you would have ordered up an SS 396.

This ’69 Chevelle SS...
