If you're looking for a head-turner, this is it! Great 50's styling with chrome and flair.
Beautiful car that is turn-key ready to drive.
The car has NO RUST. Odometer shows less than 30k. I can't say for sure if that is accurate, but based on the condition of the car, it is possible.
Paint is a beautiful metallic flake blue with a white metallic flake top. Paint is good. There are a few small chips from normal wear that have been touched up. Chrome is decent on the car. The bumpers appear to have been rechromed in recent years and look good. There are a some chrome pieces like door handles, hood ornament and headlight bezels that have some pitting.
The undercarriage and trunk look good. Engine compartment looks beautiful. Very clean.
This is a really solid, restored classic.
The car starts, runs and drives as it should. You could drive this car home at highway speeds. Original 331 V8 firepower Hemi engine was rebuilt in recent years and runs and looks great. Transmission shifts as it should.
All gauges and lights work. No cracks in glass and all windows roll up and down as they should. Converted to 12v system. New starter among other new parts. Wide-white wall tires are in good condition. Newer stainless dual exhaust from the manifold all the way back. Has small exhaust leak at manifold from improperly secured gasket. Suspension was lowered a little bit for appearance purposes. Mechanically in great shape.
The custom interior looks nice. Completely redone in 2019. It is not original, but was tastefully done. No rips or tears. It has a bluetooth stereo receiver mounted in the glove box and good speakers to cruise with music from your phone. Trunk compartment also was redone and looks very nice.
You can take this to cruise night or your local car show. People will love it!
Hard to find a restored 50's classic for this price!

My story isn’t one of a specific car, but classics in general.
‘There are many four-door New Yorkers for sale, but how often do you see a two-door come to market?” the ClassicCars.com advertisement asks.
the Porsche 914 weighted in at 2,072-2,194 pounds, allowing this to provide a sporty ride. The handling and braking also vastly benefited from this, taking a page from Lotus’ Colin Chapman’s playbook.
Mitch Perry did not make my list of favorite race drivers this past week. However, he is at the top of my list as my own race driver coach and friend, and we share very parallel youth years. Unlike me, he has gone on to become an accomplished racer and is one of LA’s most […]
The Pick of the Day is advertised as a 1966 Ford GT40 with an asking price of $124,999. Deal of the century for a GT40 Mk I “street-legal supercar”? Well, as it turns out, this car being offered by its private owner in Gardnerville, Nevada, is not one of the cars that Ford raced at […]
During this time spent indoors during shelter in place, I have been able to continue work on the MGB GT restoration. The latest project has been tackling the gearbox. For a bit of history: The 3-syncro overdrive-equipped gearbox in this car is the one in it when the car was delivered. The gearbox was rebuilt […]

Here are the latest announcements: The North American International Auto Show in Detroit, formerly held in January but moved this year to June in an effort to reinvigorate the event, has been canceled because the host […]
While “speedster” is most-often associated with “bathtub” Porsche 356 roadsters of the 1950s, the term goes back to the Brass Era days of stripped-down sports cars, from pricey Mercer Raceabouts to the facsimiles hand-built from abundant Model T Fords. The Pick of the Day is a sharp-looking 1914 Ford Model T Speedster that appears to […]
In the video-game world of make-believe, where you can perform extreme driving exploits in pretty much whatever vehicle you choose, the car model most commonly found on virtual roads is… wait for it… the Volkswagen Beetle. The Volkswagen leads the list for the model that games makers most often place in their products, from Grand […]
At some point, this coronvirus impingement will end and we’ll want to be out and about, cruising the highways and byways with our convertible tops down. A dealership in Fort Wayne, Indiana, suggests the Pick of the Day, a 1966 Lincoln Continental convertible, would be an ideal choice for the open road. “This is a […]
