Tax day is Monday, and if you're getting a refund, we have some ideas for you...
What a diverse market the collector car industry represents. Every week, the Motorious editorial staff does a dive into the classified section of the site to find the cars for sale that we would want to buy for ourselves. These cars are more than worthy of a new garage, and we're thrilled to be able to share our picks with the readers each week. Here is a list of cars to check out as we roll into the middle of May.
One Of A Kind Mustang
The exterior of this 1967 Mustang is finished in a Dark Moss Green, there are no major issues with the body, and the chrome is also in great condition. An Ivy Gold two-tone interior with functional gauges and electrical components appears to be original. What’s really special about this car, though, is what’s under the hood. From the outside, a 6-cylinder or maybe a 289-cid is expected, a 302-cid would be surprising, but a factory 390-cid big block is shocking.
Beastly Bronco Restomod
Buying a modified car can be risky. However, when done right, the extra modifications that the previous owner/builder made to the car can also make up for anything that the original vehicle could have been lacking and this Bronco is the perfect example of that.
1967 Chevy Chevelle SS Packs LS Magic
Some cars will make you stop in your tracks every time you see one, and for us, the 1967 Chevy Chevelle SS is one of those cars. It’s often overshadowed by the more muscular body styles that would soon follow, but the mid-late 1960s Chevelle exude class, style, and the perfect amount of aggression. Ones like this example, available through Vicari, are a reminder of how impressive the models really are, and this one hides an LS surprise under the hood.
Celebrate American Supercar Glory In This 2006 Ford GT Heritage Edition
The first generation of the Ford GT has grown in popularity since the supercars first ran new. Some didn’t realize how desirable these cars would become when they were brand new, but the appreciation of the Ford GT has grown by leaps and bounds over the years. Few vehicles inspire the reaction of the Ford GT when they come up for sale, and this is especially true for the Heritage Edition models. Ones like that special edition of the limited run GT being sold by Bonhams are worthy of any collection.
Fire Service Land Rover Repurposed By Tophat Classics
If you’ve never heard of Tophat Classics and you are a fan of the Land Rover 110, you should definitely check them out. They are a world renowned Land Rover restoration shop in Loosdrecht, Netherlands and many of their builds, such as this 1985 Land Rover 110 that just popped up on Bring a Trailer, have really garnered a lot of attention for their quality and uniqueness.
Stunning 1970 Plymouth Cuda
This concours-correct 1970 HEMI ‘Cuda was expertly restored by Roger Gibson and Frank Badalson. If you know those two names, then you know this car has to be a true survivor of a car with all matching numbers meant to take the driver back to the golden years of Mopar muscle. With the original engine, transmission, and body panels, all of the tags on this car match the factory stamped VIN perfectly. Additionally, the car is accompanied by its original fender tag and broadcast sheet. It is also listed on the Galen Govier Registry as well.
Rare 2016 Jaguar F-Type Project 7 Roadster
As the rightful successor to the legendary E-Type, Jaguar’s F-Type was from the very beginning one of the automaker’s most advanced vehicles up to that point. With an aluminum chassis cleverly holding the engine ahead of the driver and a transmission pushing power to the rear wheels, the F-Type was available with a variety of engines, induction system types, and two different transmissions. The most potent drivetrain used by the F-Type is the supercharged 5.0-liter V8 found in the R variant. Building upon that success, Jaguar launched a special edition model limited to just 250 examples.
1970 Oldsmobile 442 W-30: The Pinnacle Of Oldsmobiles Secret Weapon
By 1965 it became clear that Oldsmobile had a secret weapon for the 442 in development. While enthusiasts got little hints of the ultimate goal with the W-29 Package, the secret was otherwise fully kept right up until its release date. So much so, that dealers didn’t even know what was coming. Meanwhile, other muscle cars of the same time period, some more popular, were struggling to keep up with the 442’s already pavement blistering performance capabilities. When equipped with a manual transmission, slicks, and headers, the car was able to easily break into the 13-seconds at the drag strip and the W-30 Package only added to the car’s potency.
