Fresh Find: Feb 10, 2018 - If you want to play with the big boys you have to dig a little deeper into your reserves, but oh my what a pay off!

One of the most desirable British Sports Cars of the 50's and a car responsible not only for the shocking success of manufacturer but also a car that proved important to the introduction of sporting cars to the masses worldwide. The beautifully flowing lines of these early Healeys were instrumental in developing a near unquenchable desire in near everyone who saw one drive by.

Now comes your opportunity to quench your thirst - this is not for the faint of heart as offered at $100k USD, but you are acquiring a virtually as new, factory fresh, fully restored example that has been completed by one of the very best Healey Restores in the business.

1956 Austin Healey 100-4 that was originally delivered to it's first owner in Los Angeles California. BMC Philadelphia took this dry climate car and completed a restoration that left no part of the car untouched cosmetically and mechanically.

Stunning colour combo in Black on Green Leather and ready to be enjoyed. Whether you are a collector wanted to coddle or a Brit car lover looking to finally own and love what they have always desired... this is that car.

More to see and more to learn, but be prepared to buy as this car will pull you in and you will not be capable of denying its demand to be bought.

Fresh Find: Feb 10, 2018 - A rare find at this price point given the work completed on this piece.

1963 Corvette Convertible - no not one of those numbers matching, unusable collectables - this is a Vette that can be driven, enjoyed and played with - a virtual no risk purchase at this price. 

The car was the subject of a frame off restore some years back before coming into the hands of the current private owner who took it a few steps further in the summer of 2017 when he installed a fresh engine and Muncie 22 Four Speed. Engine Build: 1973 LT1 block - 355 ci. 4 bolt mains, Steel crank, forged pistons. aluminum heads, 2x4 barrel carbs, roller tip rockers, chambered exhaust etc.

Overall impressive condition throughout for this price, with good paint and interior, even a fresh soft top.

This a a fast a furious Classic Vette for $39,900. USD

Fresh Find: Feb 10, 2018 - Why show the tail end of a car that is stunning beautiful front to back? The back end is both a thing of beauty and it is what most anyone sharing a road with the driver of this thing is likely to see.

2007 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Coupe - powered by a 380hp 4 Cam V8 and in this car power to the rear wheels is delivered via an all too rare True Six Speed Manual Transmission - not some floppy lever servo controlled auto/manual here, we are talking a real stick shift!

These Aston V8s are not just known for their beauty and performance, but also for their reliability and relatively low maintenance costs when compared against many other exotics. Unlike most exotics these Aston Martins can survive and flourish in the role of a daily driver... in fact we are seeing quite a few of these in the +100k miles range already - not something you see in other exotics.

This is a beautifully spec'd example in stunning deep Blue Sapphire Metallic on lovely Chancellor Red Leather all hand built in Britain. Well optioned and in fabulous condition throughout with near zero evidence of usage and only 21k original miles on the odometer.

Try and find a better all around Aston package for less than the ask here of $41,746. USD

1974 De Tomaso Pantera for sale at Professional Automobile Exchange in Bensalem PA

 

Fresh Find: Feb 9, 2018 - Fabulous, fun, furious and sometimes down right frightening the Ford Pantera. The creation of De Tomaso, owned by Alejandro De Tomaso, a wealthy Argentinean living in Italy and designed by Tom Tjaarda and American working for Ghia in Italy.  A real crossbreed from birth this Italian Exotic designed, developed and built in Italy, carried a U.S. developed Ford 351 V8 midship which drove the rear wheels via a ZF Transaxle.

The substantial torque provided by this potent Ford engine in a relatively light, short wheelbase chassis prior to the automotive industries use of ABS Braking, Electronic Traction Controls and the like, meant that when driven in anger these cars could prove to be a handful, as many a shocked driver realized often too late!

That said Panteras were true shock and awe cars capable of a near unmatched sound and fury combined with a modern Euro look that was unattainable from anything else in the marketplace - certainly as originally priced.

There is not much from the era that compares to the package offered by the Pantera cars and even with prices on the rise over the past few years these cars remain exotic bargains, both to initially buy and to maintain over the longer term.

This find today is a 1974 Pantera L that remains surprisingly original & correct - the car was the subject of a refresh by the pro's at Pantera Miami some years back with minimal mileage since.

This is not a 100 point example, but certainly a high quality, original driver.. exactly what a 'driving investment' should be - a usable, enjoyable motorcar with a potential financial upside.

Looks to be a worthy example at $74,900. USD

Fresh Find: Feb 9, 2018 - The car has been the recipient of a good life in sunny dry California and it shows.

1989 Porsche Carrera Targa - Final year of production for these traditionally styled 911s - powered by its original 3.2L H6 with the always desired G50 5 Speed Manual.

Nicely preserved example that could be easily improved with a professional detail - often the case with these true private seller vehicles.

Well maintained and freshly inspected - reportedly no oil leaks and good compression. Mechanically prepped for sale and the inspection report is available from the seller.

111k dry climate miles, interior is intact with non of the usual dash cracks or worn leather.

Looks like a value buy with an ask of just $42,300. USD

Lets dig deeper together and figure out if this is the right one for purchase.

Fresh Find: Feb 8, 2018 - These M Roadsters come in two basic versions the earlier 240hp model and the more desirable, late year cars, that were powered by the storied S54B32 engine with 330hp on tap.

The North American delivery numbers of the late year 330hp cars was fairly small and hence given their performance capabilities and limited availability these late year examples have been climbing in market value with what we think is the opportunity for further value appreciation in the years to come.

As equipped this 2002 BMW M Roadster is capable of 0-60 in under 5 seconds, but unlike many fast cars the M Roadster from this era is a total package with looks, both inside and out, suspension and brakes that match the power.

This is an impressive example with just 69k original miles recorded and a pristine history from new. The car shows great throughout with none of the usual wear you find on these cars at this age... clear evidence of a life well lived.

A Virginia car from new with four owners and a car that has just been through a major service in the hands of the local specialist in preparation for this sale.

This is an amazing Sports Car for this money and it would make a fabulous addition to any enthusiast's garage at the $20,995. USD - aggressively priced when compared against similar late year M Roadsters.

Fresh Find: Feb 8, 2018 - Excited for sure... as it is always nice to find and display something really special. This is one of the most unique, factory original 993s you'll see, and a real keeper in stunning condition throughout.

Now I am personally more predisposed to 993 Coupe ownership than I would be to the Cab version, but for this car I would make an exception.

This is a special order car and it's original buyer knew exactly what he wanted and clearly had the funds to make his dream Porsche come to life.

1997 Porsche Carrera Cabriolet - Varioram 282hp Air Cooled H6 (the last and the best version of the naturally aspirated air cooled engines from Porsche) 6 Speed Manual, RWD Chassis. Just 52k original miles.

Finished in Glacier White on Tan Leather. Options List E22- AeroKit 2B, Includes Front and Rear AeroKit Spoilers, AeroKit Rocker Panels,Third Brake Light in Rear Spoiler, M551- Air Deflector, P03 & M692- Becker AM/FM Radio Includes Cassette Player, Remote 6-Disc CD Changer, M490- Hi-Fi Sound System, P15 & M586- Power Seats Package, Includes Passengers & Drivers Side Electric Adjustments, Adjustable Lumbar Supports, M982- Supple Leather Seats and Trim, XD9 & X89- Painted Rims Matched to Exterior Paint, Includes Oriental Rim Caps with Porsche Crests, X19- Leather Lower Dashboard, X34- Instrument Trim Rings Covered in Leather, Includes White Painted Instrument Dials, X28- Light Rootwood Steering Wheel, Y07- Light Rootwood & Aluminum Shifter Knob, Includes Hand Brake Handle Finish, M159- Engine Sound Package, M408- 18" Technology Design Wheels etc.

This car has led a sheltered life in the dry Arizona climate and it remains near Factory Fresh throughout - you just have to see all of the pictures on this to understand the quality and uniqueness of this fabulous 993.

Rare, investor grade find that is priced within range of the far more common, lightly optioned 993 Cabs. Offered at $66,800. USD

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1997-Porsche-911-Carrera-993-/253415208177?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368

 

Fresh Find: Feb 8, 2018 - Okay, let's be honest these SLs are more GT than sports car - no not something you may tout about to your mucho macho friends or take to weekend track days, but still a fine piece of automotive machinery built by a manufacturer with a very long history of racing and winning. The heritage of the modern era SLs can be traced back to the race winning SL 300s of the 50s - yes the modern era SL is now a little softer all round and built to address the requirements of a different market segment, but there is no denying it's roots.

1999 Mercedes Benz SL500 - no not the very best or the fastest year for SL line, but as priced this is a pure automotive bargain for the buyer that is more about a sporting drive and less about tearing up the asphalt. Not with that said, these cars are by no means slow.. 5.0L V8 providing 302hp to the rear wheels via a 5 Speed Automatic Transmission which allows the car to zip to 60 in 6.1 seconds.

Priced approaching $100k USD when new this three owner example has been used sparingly (like many SLs) and garage kept with just 61k miles on the odometer. The current owner has had the car for the past 10 years and has added just over 7k miles during his ownership period.

The car shows as you would expect an SL to look, super fresh with minimal to no wear throughout and it comes with both the soft top and factory hardtop.

If this SL speaks to you then you'll want to dig in with us a little deeper, but as offered at $8,995. USD its a near no brainer buy for the right guy or gal.

Fresh Find: Feb 7, 2018 - Going, going, gone... at auction and nearing its seller's target price!

Final year 911 SC Targa - Dry Climate Find with recent repaint in it's original colour, clearly a refreshed interior too at some point earlier.

1983 Porsche SC Targa showing 122k miles on the odometer - the selling dealer has recent invoices for $10k in mechanical work in the recent past.

Nice driver quality find that looks good overall and reportedly runs strong... not without some faults, but what 911 isn't within range of this well offered piece. A/C does not blow cold, the dash has cracks and I sense that the Targa roof is ready for a rebuild... surprise surprise!  

Lots to like here for $27,900. USD - as there are fewer and fewer serviceable, air cooled cars, down at this number.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1983-Porsche-911-911-SC-TARGA-/323044581326?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368

 

Fresh Find: Feb 7, 2018 - Pure Magic - and one of the loveliest Prancing Horse cars ever. 

Who among us has not been bitten by the Ferrari bug, a contagion that lingers within us all, and it has only one cure. That of course being Ferrari ownership, and with that, all of the blessings that such ownership bestows upon those that are both fortunate and brave enough to take the plunge.  

Now understandably very few of us economically battered enthusiast have the financial means let alone the fortitude to jump into the deep end and buy a new Ferrari, as fabulous as they may be they remain the unattainable for most of the quivering crowd. 

So what are you to do if your Ferrari desire runs so deep that you are losing sleep, yet you find yourself with pockets that are not deep enough to fill this void and alleviate the pain? Luckily Ferrari has been building cars for a very long time and some of it's best and brightest efforts have now depreciated to a number that make some of the cars from this hallowed Marque at least approachable, if not affordable.  

Today's Ferrari find is one of those rare opportunities where we find something that ticks so many of the boxes yet it's priced within reach... well sure it is a Ferrari so it going to be a bit of a financial stretch for many, but it is attainable for far more enthusiast than most would imagine. That said you have to take a long, big picture look at the realities of Ferrari ownership, the initial purchase and the actual cost of maintenance, but also you must look at the prospective return on your Ferrari investment once you are ready to let it go and return it to the marketplace. The big picture view may prove better than you may have assumed. 

1998 Ferrari F355 Spider - Gated 6 Speed True Manual Car - Just 25k original well documented miles from new, and a car with minimal ownership turnover having just two owners from new. Importantly the car comes with what we all want - that being a very well documented service history at each owners' local Ferrari Dealership! That said i sense that it is time again for an engine out, timing belt service on this piece so you need to make that part of your calculations.

This is a pristine history example that shows minimal wear with no leather shrink and no sticky buttons!

Truly love what you drive - offered at $63,900. USD

Fresh Find: Feb 7, 2018 - Looking for a potent Porsche Classic cabriolet for the up coming season? You need to jump on this one quick!

California dry climate find with just two dedicated owners from new. This car comes with a thick folder of service invoices from both the local Porsche dealer and one reputable Porsche Specialist shop - a car that was never ignored and forgotten in the garage.

1991 Porsche Carrera '2' the rear wheel drive version of the 964 - powered by the delicious air cooled 3.6L H6 with power transferred to the rear wheels via a 5 Speed Manual Transmission.

Just 71k original miles from new and original and super fresh throughout in traditional Guards red on Beige Leather.

All said a whole lot of air cooled Porsche for the $41,500. USD ask.

1959 Austin-Healey Sprite

 

Fresh Find: Feb 7, 2018 - A joy to own and a pleasure to drive a model that has moved up market over the years and holding onto the gains it has made.

Whether you are an old Brit car lover or a young classic sports car enthusiast this is a car that will please near everyone as who doesn't love a Bug Eyed Sprite.

1959 Austin Healey Sprite Mk1 - very much like it left the factory across the pond some near 60 years ago.

$42,000 USD was invested in a ground up restoration of this stunning example some years back ith less than 3000 miles since that restoration (invoices are with the car), and it has recently been refreshed mechanically with fresh brakes etc, to ensure the next owner has a car that is problem free and ready to be enjoyed.

A great example as to why I suggest to clients to by someone else's completed car as opposed to buying a project car and then invest in it's restoration...Offered at $19,995. USD

1959 Austin-Healey Sprite

 

Fresh Find: Feb 6, 2018 - I have to say that I have a thing for special order colours on a 911. When you look at as many Porsches as I do in a day it is always nice to see one that stands out from the crowd, and this one most certainly does.

1990 Porsche Carrera '4' Cabriolet - stunning in it's original Tahoe Blue Metallic on Cream Leather and Cup Rims that are colour matched.

The car is pristine throughout showing little to no wear with 63k original miles on the clock.

Reportedly runs and drives as great as it looks and a car that simply can't be ignored as you pass by at speed.

Speaking of speed the 964 Carrera 4 is in so many ways a direct descendent of the hallowed, limited production 959 cars and many of the technologies developed for the 959 found their way into these 964s. Powered by the 3.6L 247hp air cooled H6 with 5 Speed Manual Transmission and of course AWD.

Offered at $49,500. USD 

https://denver.craigslist.org/cto/d/porsche-911-targa-yellow/6482537743.html

 

Fresh Find: Feb 6, 2018 - Rare find made all the rarer by the reality that it is a near mint, One Owner SS.

1998 Chevrolet Camaro 'SS' - SLP - LS1 Slicktop Coupe. Original throughout, unmodified and kept in amazing condition by the guy that carefully order the car his way back in the 90's.

Shimmering Black on Grey Cloth with SS Rims power coated in black to match - one mean looking Camaro!

These factory SLP LS1s were produced in very limited numbers and in their day they were one of the fastest cars that GM sent out the door with and SLP modified LS1 engine and 330hp on tap.

The right car, in the right condition, with the right history, and just one owner from new... talk about a keeper!

Offered at $12,900. USD

Fresh Find: Feb 5, 2018 - A classic early Targa priced to allow you to drive and enjoy it not like many 911s of this vintage that you are forced to park and ignore to protect their value.

1970 Porsche 911T Targa in Signal Yellow on Black Leather - this is a non numbers matching example as it is propelled by a 2.2L 911E engine from the same era. Engine has been updated with Weber Carbs and provides approximately 140hp.

Reportedly very nice paintwork, factory sport seats, fresh Targa Top, 6x15 Fuchs and a fresh clutch and brakes Looks great, runs great and most importantly it is a zero rust car!

Simply a fabulous way to own and drive an early long nose - reliable and ready to be enjoyed. I've always loved these Stainless Steel trimmed Targa cars!

Offered at $59,900. USD

1999 Porsche 911 Carrera

 

Fresh Find: Feb 5, 2018 - Pure value for the enthusiast seeking a great performing 911 without breaking the bank. This car ticks so many of our boxes and best yet it is in the right condition and priced aggressively too.

1999 Porsche Carrera Cabriolet - with Factory Hardtop! Why we like it: Documented ONE OWNER, clean climate - West Coast Original (California/Washington State), Pristine History and Documented Porsche Dealer Serviced from new (28 Dealer Service Visits recorded)!

Just 72k original miles on this near mint beauty - Blue Metallic on Grey Full Leather, Power Heated Seats, Xenon Lights, Three Spoke Wheel and more.

1999 is a desirable year for the 996 as it has the 300hp H6 Engine which has the significantly sturdier Dual Row IMS Bearing and therefore less prone to the dreaded IMS Failure Issue suffered by the other 3.4L & 3.6L 996 Carrera Engines.

Looking for a 911 to love and drive - the 996 offers everything a 911 enthusiast desires, but it is a true value buy when compared against any other era of 911.

Offered at $18,995. USD

1999 Porsche 911 Carrera

 

1999 Porsche 911 Carrera

 

Fresh Find: Feb 2, 2018 - This is a very impressive 914 out of the dry climate Southwest that has been restored and significantly enhanced and much improved over it's stock configuration.

1973 Porsche 914 powered by a rebuilt, significantly modified 2.0L engine bumped out to 2.4L along with Twin Carbs. (original Fuel Injection is with the car). But the modification didn't stop there as the brakes, rims and suspension were also upgraded and it rides on 5 Lug Original Fuchs. Transmission was also the subject of a rebuild and it shifts great.

The car is solid throughout and started life as a Bahama Yellow just as it is seen today.

If you are looking for a 914 to love, own and enjoy it is become extremely hard to find one that comes close to all of the attributes found in this one.

Performance and appearance of this car are on par or exceed the original Porsche 914-6 cars now priced into the $100k range.

I have had many clients over the years seeking a Speedster or 550 Spyder Clone that may have been better served by looking at a real Porsche instead, and this 914 ticks almost all those 'I want' boxes too. Yet unlike the clones this is a legitimate 45 year old factory built Porsche... you tell me where you would like your money to be sitting in the years to come,

Offered at $29,900. USD

Used 1969 Chevrolet Camaro -COPO CLONE-RESTORED BIG BLOCK-SEE VIDEO | Mundelein, IL

 

Fresh Find: Feb 2, 2018 - COPO Clone - done nice - Chevrolet's infamous Central Office Production Order was the method Chevy Dealers used in 1969 to produce their legendary factory built Drag Racer.

A furious 427 was under the hood backed by a Muncie M22 4 Speed and a Posi Track Rear End with the rest of the car being a stripper - real factory built COPOs now top the list of Camaro Values at the auctions, but this clone is a way to get it all the look, the feel, the performance for pennies on the dollar.

Impressive throughout, this older recreation remains in great condition and it remains ready to rock your world.

Saturday nights will never be the same if this is in your garage.

Fresh Find: Feb 1, 2018 - As good as it gets, as nice as they come... a great addition to anyone's collection.

Mint, Original, One Owner all the attributes that are so tough to find on any vehicle that was built some 30+ years ago, but to be able to tick all those boxes on one of BMW's finest makes this a thrill of a find.

1987 BMW M6 - automotive artistry of the highest order and blessed with a very happy Inline Six borrowed from the BMW's fabulous M1.

31k original, never damaged miles in the loving hand of one caretaker since new, this is a dry climate car that has been spared the damaging environmental elements that most others of this breed and era have been subjected too, and difference is readily apparent.

Not furious, but yet sufficiently fast but more importantly a combination of beauty, pose and performance that was virtually unmatchable back in 1987 and yet surprisingly the total package has remained current and luscious to most enthusiasts eyes.

Yes you can certainly find one cheaper, but it is very unlikely to approach the overall quality and more importantly the purity of this original find.

A true automotive treasure for the right buyer at $59,995. USD

1987 Porsche 930 TURBO COUPE Carrera

 

Fresh Find: Feb 1, 2018 - Are you ready to light up your life?

Light your life on fire... this is not a car for the shy or the faint of heart as you can not go unnoticed at the wheel of this piece.

1987 Porsche 930 Turbo - restored at significant expense by a man of means, a fellow that had always wanted a 930 in his favorite Porsche colour Speed Yellow and as they were never produced in that colour he commissioned a full, down to metal, strip of this car's original Guards Red and a highly professional repaint to Speed Yellow.

But this deep pocketed gentleman did not simply stop there as he invested in a refresh of the interior as well as a intensive mechanic rebuild.

All of this work was completed in the last 2 years, but a pending divorce has since forced the sale of this car along with some of his other automotive treasures and the car is now in the hands of a well respected specialist dealer. Since taking possession of the car the dealer has had it reviewed by a local Porsche pro shop and it was given a very favorable mechanical review.

All and all one heck of a 930 - stunning and ready to be enjoyed with an aggressive ask of just $79,900. USD

1987 Porsche 930 TURBO COUPE Carrera

 

Fresh Find: Feb 1, 2018 - A true sports car, and a bargain too!

The BMW M Roadsters have always been pretty impressive sports cars, fast, great looking, reliable and a joy to drive, but when packaged up at a price like this it is hard to deny that they are also a bargain in today's marketplace.

1998 BMW M Roadster - packing a 240hp, 3.2L Inline, Twin Cam 6 with a 5 Speed Manual and RWD. These are nicely balanced traditional sports cars with a decent power to weight ratio and a shorting chassis to match.

Just 78k original miles and very little of the normal wear and tear you'll find on most M Roadsters at this age.

True an impressive example in Estoril Blue on Matching Two Tone Leather with a Blue Soft Top. These fat fender'd roadsters look fabulous at speed or standing still and the sound emitted out the quad exhaust is a thing of beauty. Yes, although highly touted when new, they were not at the top of every reviewers list, but they weren't being offered for a mere $12,995. USD like this one is today.

Clean History car that lived most of it's life in the south.

Fresh Find: Jan. 31, 2018 - Another very special 911 priced sensibly for today's market! Known as M491/WTL/Turbo Look, Supersports depending upon the market they were delivered to.

The Porsche soured COA tells the tale - this is now aftermarket fat fender'd Carrera, this is the real thing.

Just over 1600 of these Turbo Look Cabs were built by Porsche from 1984 - 1989 with the majority (in the early years) going into the U.S. market in place of the 930 Turbo cars, which for the 84/85 model years were not officially delivered to U.S. Customers.

These cars are virtually a 930 Turbo car that is missing the Turbo Engine and the 4 speed transmission that came with it and in their place resided the tried and tested 3.2L Carrera Engine and 5 Speed 915 Transmission.

1985 Porsche Carrera M491 optioned Cabriolet with just 53k original miles and a dry climate car that remains it's factory originality. Optioned right with Sport Seats & Limited Slip Differential all in all a tough combination of options to find some 35 years after leaving the factory floor.

Lovely example with the just the right amount of patina.. I personally wouldn't change a thing on this car. The car comes out of the seller's Porsche focused shop with a fresh Major Service and in need of nothing.

This is a car that has appreciated in recent years and a model that we feel provides room for some future asset appreciation, but still a car that can be driven respectfully and fully enjoyed in the years to come.

Looks to be a purchase opportunity ripe for the picking at $64,500. USD

Fresh Find: Jan. 30, 2018 - Hurry as this will not last!

Factory 911 Carrera - U.S. Delivered example that has lived a good life out in the dry climate of the southwest U.S.A, a very important fact given that these Carreras did not come fully galvanized as the later 911s did and hence are quite susceptible to the Tin Worm.

1975 Porsche 911 Carrera - 2.7L with 5 Speed 915 Transmission.

Only 528 Carreras were produced by Porsche in 1975 for the North America market and this is # 138. Reportedly a two owner car that remains mostly original throughout with some paintwork, but a numbers matching drive train and showing just 40k miles on the odometer (likely more) before being placed in long term dry storage.

The car has just been re-commissioned, refreshed mechanically and now ready to be enjoyed.

Have a peek at the YouTube Video.... https://youtu.be/q6fAWUBvW5E

Hard to source a solid, very presentable true early Carrera 911 'Driver' for the $55,000. USD being asked.

Fresh Find: Jan. 30, 2018 - Okay folks I know I'm always touting Porsche cars but that is certainly not the only thing that excites me in the automotive world. My personal lust covers near anything with wheels and I am sure many of you are much like me even if the Porsche brand sits at the top of your pecking order.

Now being just 14 years of age when the first Mustang hit the streets I, like many of you old boys, still have a thing for these Pony Cars. That said this find does not quite tick all of the right boxes for me, but that doesn't mean it won't be just right for you and when you review the full package presented here at this price point I have to say I don't think you'll find an early resto mod Mustang, built like this for these dollars!

Fresh Find: Jan. 30, 2018 - If you are 356 lover but have yet had the opportunity to find the right car, priced fairly... run don't walk to the phone as finding good ones fairly offered like this is getting harder by the year.

Having owned and loved a 1959 356 Coupe way back in the day i can tell you that these are a pure pleasure to own and drive, far more sporting than you would imagine given their tiny four cylinder air cooled engines would suggest. And they were built like tanks, designed to last forever!

This 1964 Porsche 356 C comes to you out of the southwest and the dry climate has been good to this car. An older restoration that has held up beautifully and being offered by a small Porsche specialist shop that knows this model well.

They describe the car as ready to drive anywhere and it certainly looks the part.

Offered at $65,000. USD this is a treasure awaiting your discovery.

Fresh Find: Jan. 30, 2018 - If it weren't for the far below current market price on this car you would swear that this is a Tiger, but is it? We don't believe it is, but man it's as close as we have seen!

Virtually indistinguishable from the real thing as this 1965 Sunbeam replicates near every little detail and carries what is believed to be an original Tiger Drive Train with Ford's 260 V8 under the hood. Even the VIN Plate would tell you it's the real thing.

The build and current condition throughout is really very impressive everywhere you look. British Racing Green on Black Leather, all fresh and looking highly presentable. It has all of the right Tiger updates including Griffin Aluminum Radiator, LAT Rims and Flow Master Exhaust.

Mechanically it has been refreshed from end to end and cosmetically it is as new as you'll find with fresh paint, Top, Interior Chrome etc.

Now that the Tiger's creator Carroll Shelby was checked out all of model he breathed upon including the AC Cobra, Sunbeam Tiger and Shelby Mustang have reached new plateaus in value and as priced whether a real Tiger or am after factory Clone this car remains a fabulous ride that replicates that of proven legitimate fully restored Tigers now valued at $100k+ USD.

Drive it, love it and enjoy the thrills each and every time you take her out. Looks like an opportunity at $37,900. USD

Morgan Wins the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1962

2.0L Class

TOK wins Le Mans

A rather mystifying and amazing event given that Morgan's Plus 4 design originated in 1950, was powered by a modified Triumph TR4 engine, the original design of which was a Ferguson Tractor Engine, and this Le Mans winning Morgan was driven home to England after completing the race!

1962-Morgan-Plus-Four

 

Fresh Find: Jan. 26, 2018 - All in all 1962 was a very special year for the Morgan Motor Company and no doubt for Morgan enthusiast worldwide. Actually this miraculous win may in fact have been the reason that this car was purchased by it's original owner back in 1962!

1962 Morgan Plus 4 - reportedly a 58k original mile example that has undergone recent restorations, but yet its remained virtually as it left the factory back in the day. This is not an over restored car as restorations carried out were more about preservation and minor improvements of this very solid, original Plus 4 and less about turning it into an unusable show car.

Metal panels are believed original to the car as the the engine and the wooden chassis components remain rot free and un-warped. Panel Gaps are correct and there is zero evidence of filler throughout the body.

Only 159 Morgan Plus 4s left the factory during this auspicious year so the car is as rare as it is beautiful.

This car screams classic British sports car history yet it has the power, chassis and brakes to remain not just drivable, but quite enjoyable in the modern era.

Every drive is sure to be a life affirming event and the Morgan's simplicity and easy access to parts makes living with it far less onerous than other classic from this by gone era.

Offered at $33,000. USD
