One of our favourite styles of custom car is the rat look with modern/restored internals. This Parkwood has an original patina on the body, an original clean interior and a 454 big block engine with airbags all round. We love it!
This Corvette has been in a barn in Ohio for the last 23 years and is mostly original. The hubcaps and ignition covers are stored in the boot and the owner believes the engine is the original 283. The 3 speed box was converted to a 4 speed Hurst shifter in the late 60s. Under the dust this looks like a really solid, straight car.
OK straight off lets assume this is not an SS, certainly at this price. What you do get it an awesome looking and sounding car with the 350 engine and SS looks. This looks in great shape, the engine and engine bay look particularly clean. Bargain.
This good-looking Camaro has only 8490 miles on the clock and is said to be like new inside and out. It comes with service history, but as this is an imported vehicle we would need to see lots of documents to support the mileage claim. Nice colour and great wheels, the hood and rear screen look fresh and new as well. It’s the 5.0litre RS model, so this one has the power, the looks, and has been well loved.
For sale in Norway is this fantastic slice of 1970s Americana! These cars were built by Chuck Miller in the States and this was his actual car. It is in completely original condition except for new wheels, and has only done 50,000 miles. It was owned by Chuck up to 1988 and came to Europe in 2002.
The present owner has been in touch with Chuck and he has confirmed this was his actual car.
We think this is a bit of a bargain at kr245,000 (£21,000) for a unique and fascinating car.
Fully restored Corvair Monza looks in great shape in these pictures, and with the weak Euro this one translates as £5200 at the 8th Feb exchange rate. That can only really be described as a bargain, even if it is ‘unsafe at any speed’. Mileage is quoted at 48,000km but unless there is a pile of history we are not inclined to believe it. Still, it looks great!
For sale in the USA is this unique Scaglietti bodied 1959 Corvette for $995,000 (£650,000).
Financed by Gary Laughin, a Texan oil man, in the late ’50’s. 3 cars were planned to be built but this was the only one completed. Scaglietti created this car whilst making the Ferrari 250 Tour-de-France, hence the similar looks.
The Corvette style grille is a nice touch as is the manual gearbox. Aesthetically the shape is not as pleasing as period Ferrari’s, so we can’t help thinking this is too pricey for what essentially is a dressed up ’59 Corvette.
