You either understand Alfa-Romeos or you dont. Cars like this 1984 Spider Veloce dont make a lot of sense to our rational minds, but slide behind the wheel and it whispers seductively in fluent Italian and suddenly you find yourself running it through the gears just for the sheer joy of the sound and the feel of a machine acting as your dance partner. It also helps that its good looking. Sportier than an MG and undeniably Italian, this Alfa is the entry-level two-seater for the guy who knows the real thing when he sees it. Every manufacturer has built a two-seat roadster, it seems, but few can do it better than the Italians. It starts with great bodywork, and the Spider Veloce, which endured for decades virtually unchanged, shows off a lot of flair in a compact package. The bright red paint is in good condition with the usual signs of use, which is fitting on a car thats designed to be a great dance partner, and you could really wake it up with a proper buff. Panel fit is quite good given the era and the hand-built nature of the car, and the shape works just fine without the body add-ons that would come a few years later. Simple, elegant, and extremely sporty, it shows off the little things that the Italians do so well. Note the neat little flush-fitting door handles, the exhaust pipe thats almost (but not quite!) centered under the rear bumper, and, of course, that Alfa grille standing proud up front, neatly integrated into the bumper assembly. The special Italian touch extends to the interior, where even this bargain-priced roadster gets handsome tan buckets that wear correct-looking seat covers. A wood-rimmed wheel adds to the interiors ambience, and while it looks pretty weird, that shifter is intuitive and easy to use without any strangeness at all. Functional Jaeger instruments in a pair of hoods jutting out of the dash show off the simplicity that has long been a hallmark of Italian automotive design, with the secondary instruments slightly canted towards the driver. The ventilation system is typical Italian, with controls that are hard to decipher, but thats really all part of the charm in a car like this, although the A/C needs to be serviced. Theres also an AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit that was installed many years ago and probably due for an upgrade today. The trunk is actually well-shaped and spacious enough to hold luggage for two, and a black canvas convertible top fits neatly and can be stowed in seconds. The rorty 2-liter engine sings to life with gusto and loves to rev, and with a glorious sound from the single tailpipe out back, youll be looking for reasons to drop a gear or two and pin the throttle. Aluminum cam covers are a traditional Alfa look, and the fuel injection system has that instant throttle response that makes these cars such a joy to drive. And contrary to what you may have heard, these tough little Italian sports cars are actually reliable and sturdy, perfect for having fun without the worries. Yes, its a little scruffy, but a weekend or two spent cleaning things up will pay big dividends because its all in good shape otherwise. The 5-speed manual gearbox snicks through the gears thanks to a silky smooth clutch and the suspension has a great combination of control and supple body movements, so the car is all-day comfortable. Four-wheel discs live behind stylish 5-spoke alloys carrying 185/70/14 Goodyear radials. Fun and stylish, this bargain-priced exotic is a great entry-level Italian. Sure, it needs a little TLC, but for this price, you get a genuine Alfa Romeo that gives you a real taste of pure sports car magic. Call today!
Sometimes, you just cant go wrong with the basics. This nicely finished 1968 Volkswagen Beetle isnt wildly modified, but has been freshened to make it stand out in the crowd without altering its basic character. As one of the most beloved cars of all time, this car shows you just how easy it is to make a good car great. Simple bright blue paint looks great on the trademark Beetle curves, but to really do it right, you need to make it straight. Unfortunately, a lot of folks dont think VWs are worth the investment, but thats definitely not the case here. Its obvious that someone spent a lot of time and money getting the rounded bodywork as straight as possible, and there it looks great. This one fits together extremely well (although the stories of Beetles being able to float due to exceptional seals in the doors are probably just myths), and the doors open and close with just a light touch. Theres a single line of trim running the length of the body that dresses it up, and the rest of the chrome is in excellent shape overall. In a sea of custom, lowered, chopped, shaved, and modified Beetles, this one stands out in a refreshing way. The restored interior is handsomely finished in basic black, using factory-style woven vinyl seat covers that will probably outlast us all. Fresh black door panels, a new set of black carpets, and a repainted dash make it feel young again, and the steering wheel is big enough to make the manual steering feel light and direct, which is by design. The simple single gauge offers speed and fuel level, but precious little else, but these cars tend to be so reliable that keeping a constant eye on them isnt really necessary. There is, however, a new JVC AM/FM/CD stereo system that fits well and sounds great. Up front, the trunk has been properly finished in matching black rubber and offers a full-sized spare tire and wheel assembly with an extra hubcap. The 1600 cc flat-four has been recently rebuilt by the owner, who is also a master VW mechanic. Theres a familiar air cleaner up top, a big generator making the electricity, and a fresh carburetor to make it go. All the original heater tubes and ducting are intact, so this VW is happy in cooler weather although its still probably not suitable for Minnesota in January. Underneath, the chassis is in good order with only light surface scale that indicates that this Beetle has spent its life in a warm climate. No modifications, no questionable upgrades, just a solid, clean Bug that works just like the one you used to own in college. It does have a fresh exhaust system with dual outlets, which is probably the case with virtually every Beetle in existence today, and it motors down the road with that traditional VW whistling exhaust note thats so beloved. Factory wheels with chrome hubcaps, new blackwall radials, and a no-nonsense look with improved road manners. Volkswagen Beetles still represent a huge amount of fun for the money, and this one has been nicely restored to represent everything that makes these cars so special. Call today!
Where else are you going to find an A-list German 2-seat roadster with V8 power for so little cash? Let your neighbors think you hit it big with this pretty 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL that still drives like the ultimate piece of German engineering from the 80s. Clearly built to last, the R107 SLs were called der Panzerwagon by their creators, and now, more than three decades later, its easy to see why. With all its original bodywork and paint, this 34-year-old 380SL looks pretty darned good, like catching a glimpse of the still-lovely Raquel Welch and realizing that she hasnt lost a step. The well-proportioned body still looks like a million bucks and the three-pointed star on the nose commands respect from virtually everyone on the road. As I said, theres no major rust or rot thanks to a lifetime in the warm south, and someone obviously loved this car, because the finish has a soft luster that only comes from frequent baths and regular applications of wax. It also helps to start with high-quality paint, and theres no question that Mercedes-Benz quality during this era was second to none. Even the brightwork on the bumpers and around the windows of the hardtop remains bright and shiny. It shows signs of use but also signs of love. Thats the car you want. If you need any additional proof that the famous MB-Tex vinyl upholstery in these cars is virtually indestructible, look no further than the tan buckets in this roadster. We have every reason to believe the upholstery is original, and theres not a split seam or a worn corner anywhere to be found. Equally nice door panels show no evidence of even a drivers elbow leaning on the armrest and the carpets show only mild wear thats quite in line with the cars age and mileage. As a convertible, a little discoloration from the sun isnt unexpected, but everything has an all-of-a-piece look that suggests a well-maintained original rather than a piecemeal restoration. Woodgrain appliques on the center stack and console warm it up a bit and are showing their age, but theyre some of the only indicators that this car is now more than thirty years old. A newer AM/FM/CD stereo is the lone upgrade inside, because everything else was standard equipment. All SLs included two tops, and with the hardtop in place, this car seals up as well as a modern sedan. And true to form, the trunk is as beautifully upholstered as the rest of the interior. The 3.8 liter V8 was designed to help improve fuel economy but still delivers the kind of effortless performance that made these cars famous as high-speed cruisers. The bubbly SOHC V8 makes wonderful sounds and is remarkably flexible, equally content to burble through traffic or hammer down the autobahn at triple-digit speeds. The clean engine bay has been properly maintained from new, including converting the A/C to R134a refrigerant, so the system is working properly. It starts easily and drives smoothly, although it likes to be warmed up before you really push it, and the 3-speed automatic transmission is a willing partner. The all-independent suspension soaks up bumps but doesnt give up much in terms of handling, and 4-wheel discs were standard so you never feel like youre in over your head. Looks like those chrome wheels were installed in the 90s, but theyre flashy enough for the sporty yellow convertible and carry slightly larger than stock 205/65/15 Michelin radials. Enjoy the performance and luxury of this lovely SL roadster, which will make you feel like a movie star every time you drive it.. Call now!
With its origins dating back to 1972 and the 350SL, this superbly preserved 1988 Mercedes Benz 560SL is the final evolution of the R107 chassis, and is unquestionably the best of the breed. Replacing the somewhat underpowered 3.8 liter V8 in the 380SL, the 560SL got a muscular 5.6 liter V8, a 4-speed automatic transmission, and a host of chassis and styling upgrades that make it the one to own if youre a collector or just someone who appreciates precision machinery. This beautiful SL has been incredibly well-cared for in sunny conditions its whole life, and with what is believed to be 89k original miles and a full maintenance history, it will sure see decades more of fun in the sun. There truly was a difference between a mass-produced low-priced car and this top-of-the-line cruiser, and it is immediately apparent when you look down the bright red flanks of this SL. Repainted five years ago (documented with receipts), there are no ripples, no sags, no orange peel, just a vivid, deep finish that clearly says this car is for the person who knows the difference between good enough and exceptional. The doors fit the way you would expect from a Mercedes and the big hood opens and closes with just your fingertips. The 560 received a modest chin spoiler, and on this car it is largely free of driveway scuffs and road rash, while out back, a subtle federally mandated third brake light perches at the edge of the trunk lid. Things like the rubber bumper guards, rub strips, and chrome-ringed grille are all in excellent condition, suggesting that this SL, like most, has lived a very easy Southern life. Inside is all stock and very well-preserved, and the lovely tan hides contrast smartly with the bright red exterior. The seats are in good condition with only modest signs of wear and theyre extremely comfortable, making this the ideal car for long highway drives. The fat steering wheel is nicely weighted, and an airbag was standard equipment by 1988. The gauge layout is straightforward and elegantly simple in traditional Mercedes-Benz fashion, and the controls for things like the climate control and radio fall easily to hand. The SL is strictly a two-seater, with a small package shelf behind the seats and a fully finished trunk to provide reasonable accommodations for two peoples luggage. All SLs were equipped with two tops as standard, a folding canvas convertible top and a matching red hardtop, making it a car thats ready for any occasion. The 5.6 liter V8 is the most potent engine ever offered in US-bound R107 SLs, making a fairly robust 227 horsepower and 287 pounds of torque. With a rumbling, powerful idle, this muscular powerplant moves the roadster with ease, and despite being a luxury car first and a sports car second, it is remarkably potent on the road. This engines real strength lies in its almost boundless reserves of torque, making it feel like a German muscle car. Unobtrusive when you want it quiet, and ready to play whenever the roads turn twisty, the mechanicals in this SL make it the ideal dance partner. Underneath, everything is factory-spec, right down to the exhaust system, and its in great condition thanks excellent service, where the service records indicate fresh brakes, new valve seals, a new radiator, fuel pump, and fuel accumulator, new shocks, front control arms, ball joints, and bushings, plus a tune up. Someone has already done the expensive stuff for you. Traditional Mercedes-Benz alloys were revised for the 560, and these carry 205/65/15 Michelin radials. The 560SL combined all that Mercedes learned about the V8 R107 chassis cars into a cultural icon that quietly and confidently told the world its occupants had arrived and its no different today. This one is about as clean and documented as they come, and likely wont last long! Call now!
If you have someplace remote to get to, this 1990 Land Rover Defender 90 is the right tool for the job. Nicely finished with neat black paint and a bulletproof diesel powerplant, its ready to enjoy regardless of whether you take it on the asphalt or get it dirty in the mud. Looking at the lines of the Defender 90, you know it was built for a purpose, not to be beautiful. Thats not to say that there isnt beauty in the functionality, because nobody has yet come up with anything that goes through the brush better than this. There are Landies in every corner of the globe doing unbelievable things, and this one seems eager to join them. The black paint has a traditional look, and the sheetmetal underneath is certainly straight for its age. That means it hasnt been abused or bashed off-roading, and you know it was hard to resist. The doors fit nicely and while the face has changed a bit since the early days, its still undeniably a Land Rover. Big plastic fender flares cover the oversized tires and theres a simple grille and bumper up front, and who doesnt love the adventurous look of the tire mounted in the rear and the roll cage and matching soft top? Nothing extraneous or flashy, just pure form following function. Too cool. Inside its not quite as plain inside as youd expect, with twin black bucket seats up front and traditional Land Rover side-facing benches in back. Rubber mats and simple door panels suggest that the Defender means business, and yes, its obviously a British-spec vehicle with right-hand drive (This Defender was not imported to the US in 1990 but it is legal now that its more than 25 years old). Factory gauges cover the basics and the controls were designed to be interpreted by people of any culture, since these were used around the world. The control levers manage the 5-speed manual transmission and 2-speed transfer case, and theres a center console between the seats with cup holders and a Bluetooth stereo. The cargo bay offers a huge amount of room and all that open area makes it bright and airy inside with great visibility. For reliability in the harshest conditions, theres simply nothing that can beat a diesel. The 2.5 liter 4-cylinder diesel engine in this Defender has just 125,502 miles on the clock and runs superbly. It clatters and shakes like a diesel, but the big hit of low-end torque and tall gears in the axles make it feel lively around town, if not necessarily fast. Row the 5-speed manual properly and it has no problem running through traffic and it cruises easily at modern highway speeds. The engine bay is obviously outfitted for harsh conditions, including a heavy-duty air cleaner system, massive radiator and fan assembly (dig that shroud!), and sealed braking and fuel systems. Its not detailed for show under the hood, but its neat and clean and doesnt show signs of neglect, and thats really what matters in a truck like this. Shift action is light, the clutch take-up is clean, and with power steering and front disc brakes, it feels quite competent on or off the pavement. The axles look big enough for a semi-tractor and there are stock suspension components throughout. Black 5-spoke wheels with BFGoodrich All-Terrain off-road radials give it an updated look and improved rock-climbing capabilities. Nicely kept and totally ready for an adventure, this Defender is the truck you need if you really and truly want to live the lifestyle. Call today!

Like it or not, Japanese cars are gaining traction as collectables, and early Nissan Z-cars like this 1987 300ZX are an excellent bet. With great road manners, bulletproof reliability, and looks that just dont seem to go out of fashion, this is a very affordable way to own an interesting car thats still a lot of fun to drive. The all-new 300ZX hit the streets and started the Japanese horsepower wars of the 1980s. This is a late production car, so it has all the tweaks and upgrades, and the look is still striking, especially with some modern rolling stock. The bright white paint is an older repaint, perhaps about seven years old, and it looks great with a decent shine and few signs of use. There are little signs of age here and there, but the car still attracts the right kind of attention when its out on the road. You dont see these very often these days, and the sleek, monochromatic look works very well on the tidy-looking hatch. Tinted windows work especially well with light-colored cars like this and the half-hidden headlights are a neat touch that kids today seem to emulate on their late-model cars with folding headlights. Out back theres a coo light bar that almost extends the width of the bodywork, and its really nice to not see any goofy spoilers or graphics on this one. It just looks clean and sleek. The red interior is a nice contrast to the usual tan or black and Nissan engineers got the drivers compartment exactly right. The deeply bolstered seats are probably overkill for anything on the street, but they sure are comfortable and in very good shape. The interesting 3-spoke steering wheel has a fat wrap on it to make it feel substantial, and as the top-of-the-line Nissan in 1987, everything was standard. That means you get A/C, power windows and locks, a rear defroster, and, perhaps most importantly, a set of T-tops. Big analog gauges are easy to read and the controls are all at your fingertips, as was the style in 1987. Theres also a fantastically powerful AM/FM/CD stereo system with a big speaker box in the trunk, so you can show up at events and really attract some attention. Nissans 3.0 liter V6 was an all-new design for the 300ZX, a departure from the inline-6 that powered previous Z-cars. With fuel injection, its silky smooth and has excellent road manners, as well as a decent hit of low-end torque that makes it feel downright fast around town. Aside from a high-flow air filter and aftermarket exhaust system, it appears to be largely stock. That means reliability is unaffected and with proper maintenance (including a new timing chain), its obvious that this car has always been loved. With a 4-speed automatic transmission, anyone can take advantage of the ZXs performance and the suspension is the perfect blend of comfort and performance. You also get big 4-wheel disc brakes, a super sanitary undercarriage, and the aforementioned exhaust system that not only sounds great but helps build horsepower as well. The stance has been tweaked a bit to give it a bit of an attitude and it sits on graphite-colored 17-inch wheels and 215/50/17 Falken performance radials. The time is now to get into the Japanese performance car of your youth, because good ones are hard to find and their moment in the sun is fast approaching. This 300ZX would be a great place to start.

Not many cars can defy time like this beautiful and unusual 1975 Mercedes-Benz 450SL. Even today, nearly 30 years after they went out of production, they still command respect from the general masses, and remain grade-A cars to own and drive, representing huge bang for the buck. This low-ownership, well-maintained example is one fo the nicer ones weve featured, having lived most of its coddled life under the car of an aeronautical engineer, Like most luxury models, you could pretty much get whatever color you wanted on your SL, even in 1975. While so many of these cars were red, white, or silver, this 450SL sports a lovely medium gold that works splendidly with the tan interior. With Euro-spec headlight and bumpers, it represents the high-water mark for the R107 roadster, a near-ideal blend of style and luxury that made it the premier luxury car of the era. The paint, although not perfect, remains in exceptionally good condition given the cars age, a testament to the quality of the original materials and the car this car has received over the past two-and-a-half decades. Gaps and panel fit are to typical German standards and remain excellent today. Light colors tend to minimize flaws, but even on close inspection this one has laser-straight flanks, crisply rendered body lines, and almost zero signs of road rash, although there is obviously some evidence of age, which is all but inevitable. All the chrome and stainless remains bright, and the Euro-spec rubber bumpers look far better than the oversized US rubber pontoons, keeping this car looking trim. Its obvious someone loved this car for many years. The tan interior is a sporting compliment to the light ivory paint, with seats that were reupholstered a few years ago and it all still looks pretty good. Theres a small tear in the highest traffic area on the outer bolster, but on the upside, the carpets are appropriate to the cars age and mileage, and the rear package shelf, which always gets baked in the sun, shows zero discoloration. Youll also note that lots of features were standard on an SL, ranging from air conditioning to cruise control to power windows, and a later radio has been very neatly installed in the center of the dash. Overhead theres a brown convertible top that was replaced in 2005 and still looks new and with some practice, youll be able to stash it or pull it up in moments. The trunk has its original mat, which was still rubber in 1975 and we like the no-nonsense look. The biggest virtue this SL has to offer is a massive stack of maintenance receipts and long-term ownership by an aircraft engineer. The 4.5 liter V8 is a wonderful machine, torquey and smooth with a fantastic bubbly exhaust note that sings in appropriately hushed tones thanks to a 1980 SL exhaust system. Known for their longevity, these engines are virtually indestructible given proper maintenance, and will happily run for hundreds of thousands of miles with just gas and oil changes. Evidenced by the underhood area, this one has been lovingly maintained, and virtually everything has been replaced or serviced at some point in the not-too-distant past, so it runs great. A 3-speed automatic transmission was standard equipment on US-bound SLs and the rear end was just rebuilt with new seals and a set of 3.06 gears so its an awesome highway cruiser. The fully independent suspension rides extremely well, yet gives the roadster competent handling when the road turns aggressive, and strong disc brakes at all four corners shed speed without concern. And while rust is always the enemy, this car has clearly spent its life somewhere warm, because its amazingly clean and solid throughout. Color-matched hubcaps are an unusual look that we find very appealing, and it wears recent 205/70/14 blackwall radials. This is a gorgeous 450SL with a clean bill of health, tons of receipts and maintenance records, an attractive and unusual color combination, and lots of charm. Call today!
There are good arguments to be made that the Porsche 930 (AKA the 911 Turbo) was the first civilized supercar. As reliable as an anvil and the fastest car on the German Autobahns for almost a decade, it proved that high performance didnt have to be finicky. Well, as long as you were skillful enough to drive it to its potential, that is. This remarkable 1979 930 delivers every bit of the driving experience youd expect. Towering power, awesome brakes, and handling (once youve mastered it) all make it one of the most entertaining road cars ever devised. In 1979, the 930 was rated at 300 horsepower (for comparisons sake, a 1979 Corvette made 180 horsepower) thanks to an intercooler added in 1978. This Guards Red example is still tight and solid in typical Porsche fashion, but subtly modified to deliver astounding performance, even by todays standards. The car was repainted some years ago but still looks great and theres no evidence to suggest it was ever wrecked or damaged. With flared fenders, a Euro-style front bumper and headlights, and unique lower-body cladding, the Turbo is unmistakable coming or going, even without the towering whale tail spoiler. It has a lean, taut look that somehow most performance cars lacked, as if its steel skin were pulled taut over the muscles underneath. Inside you get deeply sculpted black leather buckets, a fat steering wheel, and exceptional preservation, as most of the equipment is original. As usual, Porsche puts the tach front and center, since thats really all you need to know when youre hustling at 10/10ths and the 5-speed gearbox, once youve familiarized yourself with it and the floor-mounted clutch, has a delightfully mechanical feel. A newer AM/FM/CD stereo has been stuffed into the dash, and is a big improvement over the stock Blaupunkt unit. Part of the 911s universal appeal is the upright windshield, which makes it feel airy and bright inside, plus those two occasional seats in back, which really are reserved for kids or a briefcase, not actual adults. Up front theres a usable and fully upholstered trunk area with a shock tower brace, but if youre a Porsche owner, you know to travel light. The 930s claim to fame was the astoundingly powerful 3.3 liter turbo flat-six in back. With a massive K27 turbo, boost comes on like a shotgun blast, which is why these cars have such a split personality. Master it, however, and youll be at the helm of one of the most potent road cars ever unleashed on the general public, and even today its performance will humble just about everything on the road that doesnt cost $100,000. This one has been freshly rebuilt, along with the turbo and intercooler (receipts included), so it runs beautifully, and thanks to massive disc brakes, itll bounce your forehead off the dashboard if things get out of hand. Other upgrades include a new fuel system, A/C updated to R134a refrigerant, a B&B header system, and a lot of other details to make it dependable and fast. With gorgeous Fuchs alloys and sticky 15-inch radials, it is ready to be a thrilling daily driver or a stunning track machine, or some combination of the two. Complete with service records, this is a 930 with no hidden secrets that you can buy with confidence. Experience a legend and call today!
If youve been paying attention to the collector car market, then you know that Japanese cars are gaining ground as hot collectables. We cant promise that this 1976 Honda Civic CVCC will become a hot property overnight, but history shows us that ground-breaking cars from major manufacturers that transform markets are often worthy of their place in history and in collectors garages. Perhaps the Civic is such a car. If youre going to own one of these, this bright orange hatchback is an excellent choice. Perhaps you remember these zipping around city streets in the early 70s, or maybe you had one. It was the first truly mainstream Japanese car to appeal to the American publics fickle tastes, and that was likely due to Hondas wonderful combination of quality, fun-to-drive-quotient, and economy. Most of them were orange or red, so they were high-visibility, which I suspect was intentional, and despite the fact that everyone was deriding these as inferior to Detroit iron, one drive will convince you otherwise. Just the fact that the gaps are still tight, the paint is shiny, and all the unusual little bits and pieces are still intact speaks highly of the quality and care this car has received over the past 40 years. Nice chrome bumpers, a jaunty roof rack, and those familiar taillights out back make this a car thats going to trigger memories for everyone who sees it. The interior is remarkably tidy and surprisingly spacious for such a small car. The bucket seats reflect Hondas driver-first mentality, and theyre still comfortable wearing stock-style seat covers that are probably way too nice to be original, but just might be. Controls are simple and effective, with a big, fat steering wheel to manage the unassisted steering. Gauges are big, round dials that are easy to read and if youve ever driven a Honda, youll quickly recognize the font, so they looked like this for decades. A modern AM/FM/CD stereo seems to be the lone upgrade, and its a good idea, especially since the installation lets it blend into the dash so easily. A 4-speed manual shifts well, the pedals are situated just right, and the back seat, while not exactly spacious, is reasonable for a small car. Theres a bit of trunk behind the back seat, but fortunately, the seat folds down and expands it to a significant degree for hauling just about anything. Hondas 1488cc inline-4 isnt going to win any drag races, but it feels energetic and durable going about its business. This was, after all, an economy car, but theres no rule that says economy cars need to also be boring. The CVCC refers to Hondas Compound Vortex Controlled Combustion, which allowed Honda to meet US emissions standards without a catalytic converter. It still uses a carburetor, but the design works well and makes the car feel perky around town. The engine bay is highly original and could use a deep cleaning, but it appears to be entirely complete from top to bottom and has not been modified. Note how the engine is canted forward a bit to facility packaging and the radiator is tucked over there on the passengers side. Its as reliable as youd expect from a Honda, and as I mentioned, showing up with an early Japanese hatch like this will get you all kinds of attention. The 4-speed has light clutch action and the all-independent suspension is surprisingly agile, so you can drive this car with gusto. Tires are modestly-sized 155/80/12s, but with so little car to move around, they dont need to be big and that means theyre affordable, too. A neat, well-preserved piece of Japanese motoring history, I think well see more of these in the coming years. Get ahead of the curve and call today!
Too late now, the VW Beetle has officially become a collectors item. After years of languishing on used car lots and in your neighbors back yard, cars like this clean little 1965 Volkswagen Beetle ragtop have crossed over and become beloved toys rather than mere transportation appliances. To be honest, the looks of the Beetle pretty much ensured that theyd always have a spot in our automotive hearts. Theyre still fun, reliable, inexpensive fun, but the numbers are on the move and taking this handsome restored example home can also be considered a good investment. Someone has already done all the hard work, so the body and paint are in very good shape and show no signs of ever having been anything but well-maintained. Silver paint gives the vintage VW an updated look, yet still lets the traditional Beetle shape do all the talking and theyve cleverly added an oval rear window that blends in seamlessly. Its got a cool resto-mod vibe. Panel fit, which was already quite good from the factory, remains excellent, with the doors sealing up like the proverbial vault. Early car styling cues such as the small taillights and flat windshield give it an early VW look, and with the roll-back sunroof, its a rare find thats ideal for sunny days. The black interior is very much the way the designers intended, and its possible that the seat upholstery is original. Basic black always works well, and it includes matching door panels and carpets, plus a custom package shelf behind the rear seat with a pair of speakers and a gray tweed headliner. The color-matched dashboard adds a sense of style to the all-business interior, and the single round speedometer with integral fuel level gauge shows crisp markings. The custom steering wheel makes it easy to maneuver the manual-steering-only Beetle, even in tight spots, and the four-speed shifter falls to hand easily where youll quickly master its quirky feel. An AM/FM/CD stereo below the dash sounds great and allowed the very cool original dash to remain untouched. The overall look is warm and inviting with just enough wear on the seats to prove that its been used as intended. The front trunk is lined in black carpet for a finished look. After an extensive round of upgrades, this Bug now carries a 1600 cc flat-four from a 1970 Beetle, which delivers a bit more horsepower and torque to help this car cope with American driving styles. Of course, like all Beetles, this one starts easily and will probably run forever with that traditional air-cooled VW sound, and the engine bay shows signs of regular maintenance in the years since it was completed. A small air cleaner feeds the single carburetor, theres a new set of ignition components, and all the heater ducting is still in place, which is more proof of conscientious ownership. Underneath, its reasonably tidy, but its also completely original and with that in mind, there are no signs of trouble in the usual spots. The heater boxes are solid, the pans are clean, and the area under the rear seat is solid. Polished aluminum wheels have a Torque Thrust look, and work well with the staggered 145R15 front and 205/70/15 radials, which give it a bit of a rake. The same reasons Beetles were popular when new make them popular today, but something with this much cool was never a factory offering. Call today!
The traditional MG: light, quick, with cut-down doors and flowing fenders, and that upright MG grille up front. Evolution was slow at Morris Garage, but theres a reason why cars like this 1950a MG TD were brought home by the hundreds by GIs returning from Europe, and why they remain wildly popular today. The look is pure pre-war, with separate fenders and a long hood, but the energetic handling and performance were quite contemporary. This MG has been beautifully restored, but not to the point where youre afraid to drive it, which misses the point entirely. The body construction was traditional, but that also means that its light and easy to repair, and this one shows no signs of serious damage or the MGs arch-nemesis, rust. Hood and door fit are quite good, and the bright red paint is a very correct-looking finish thats got a great shine but no metallic, so it looks right on the diminutive little roadster. It is nice enough to have been invited to the 2017 Atlanta Concours dElegance, and the overall presentation is what endears MGs to their legions of fans; this car gets the look right. Of course, things like the chrome grille, stand-alone headlights, and simple bumpers give it an old-fashioned look, and theyre all in good original condition, with the usual light pitting but nothing that needs immediate attention. Inside the cabin, theres adequate room for two once you settle into the low bucket seats and assume the proper driving position. In actuality, youll probably find its easy to spend hours behind the wheel without fatigue and theres plenty of room for two normal-sized folks so no complaints about long road trips in this neat little roadster. Well, maybe your cheeks will be hurting from grinning so much, but the driving experience is involving without being exhausting. The interesting split bench seat has been properly reupholstered in pleated black vinyl, which does a pretty good impersonation of leather without the added maintenance. Matching door panels are the essence of simplicity and black carpets with embroidered mats complete the ensemble. The real walnut dashboard houses an array of pretty Jaeger instruments that retain the vintage British look, and were particularly fond of the ornate metal center panel with the secondary controls. The original three spoke steering wheel has that traditional skinny rim and there are wind wings that help keep the cabin comfortable at speed. And since MG lovers are serious about their cars, this one includes a fresh black canvas convertible top and side curtains for the cockpit. The whole point of an MG isnt brute power, but theyre plenty peppy with the 1250 cc inline-four, and it has a wonderful baritone exhaust note thats half the experience. This one is a wonderful runner, firing up easily through dual side-draft SU carburetors inhaling through a single air cleaner. The whole engine is scarcely bigger than a briefcase, but all the parts are easy to get at and maintain, which is the whole point. Its also beautifully and authentically detailed, making this an MG you can show with pride almost anywhere. The engines linked to a slick-shifting 4-speed manual transmission whose light action and progressive clutch are the cornerstone of performance driving and youll never get tired of dropping down a gear to hear the engines song. The chassis is a simple ladder frame with an independent front suspension, a recent exhaust system, and it sits on painted wire wheels with appropriately tall 165R15 radial tires. One drive and youll see why its so easy to love an MG and why the market on these cars is on the way up. Call today!
After years of being regarded as disposable, the vintage VW Beetle is now gaining ground as a legitimate collector vehicle. Early models like this 1964 Volkswagen Beetle coupe seem to command a premium, offering the original VW experience with a healthy dose of nostalgia. Refinished several years ago, with a tidy interior and a cool slightly custom look, this lovely little Bug is a wonderful way to enjoy the greatest hobby on earth without a huge up-front investment. Nobody said that having fun in an old car has to be expensive, right? Finished in brilliant orange, this bright little Beetle is perhaps the worlds most recognizable car. The paint and bodywork have been done to proper standards; not over-restored, but rather about what youd get if you walked into a VW dealership in 1964 and took it home. Assembly quality was quite good, and the stories about Beetles being so tight they can float turned out not to be 100% true, but they do fit together quite well. Door gaps are flush, the hood fits snugly and doesnt wiggle out on the road, and the rear deck lid follows the bodys contours precisely. Only one or two small areas on the drivers front fender and door give away the age of the restoration, but overall the car presents quite well with undeniable appeal. The simple bumpers, big headlights, and little horn grills all make the front end look as friendly as ever, and while the emblems have been shaved, do you really need name plates to know what this is? For a low-priced car, the VW designers certainly gave the interior an upscale look. Materials and workmanship are extremely high quality throughout, and while accommodations are cozy, Bugs are always bright and airy inside. Beautifully fitted cream-colored seat covers, tightly knit carpets, and crisply rendered door panels make is a pleasure to be behind the wheel. And speaking of the steering wheel, it is as neat 3-spoke unit that frames the simple instrument panel, which consists of a speedometer and separate fuel gauge, which is unique to early cars. Other notable details include the accessory cup holder, seat belts (which were still optional in 1964), and heavy duty floor mats. The forward-mounted trunk offers decent storage space as well as a full-sized spare with correct remote inflation hose and jack assembly. Beetles will take you anywhere you need to go, as long as you have the time. The upgraded 1600 cc flat-four makes modest horsepower, but as everyone knows, theyre completely indestructible and reasonably peppy around town. This one has been freshly rebuilt and shows only slight signs of use. It starts easily with that characteristic VW whistling exhaust note and youll probably see that driving it feels familiar after only a few miles. The carburetor wears a correct oil bath air cleaner and not some aftermarket piece, the big generator has been converted to 12 volts, and, and the ignition components are recent. The underbody is driver-grade, the brakes are rebuilt, the clutch is new, and it rides on a newer set of cool Halibrand-style wheels with new radials wrapped around them. This high-impact Beetle is welcome at almost any vintage event, and it always puts a smile on the faces of the driver and passers-by alike, all for a very reasonable price. Call today!
There arent many better ways to get into a traditional British roadster than this 1971 MGB. Classic good looks in a car that doesnt cost a fortune to acquire or maintain, its the ideal vintage sportster for the purist who prefers the old fashioned way of doing things. Sure, the B was starting to show its age by 1971, but thats all part of its charm, and with delicate chrome bumpers, the early cars have an entirely different look than their rubber-snouted younger siblings. With that in mind, this 1971 model is the one you want: clean and straight with all the good stuff already on board. The bright red paint is an older repaint that still looks good, with just a few signs of age and perhaps a passengers door that has been touched up at some point. The bodywork underneath is pretty good, too, with straight panels and no sign of the dreaded tin worm for which these cars were notorious. Of course, those chrome bumpers that make this one of the more desirable Bs are in excellent shape, as is the grille, which is protected by a set of rubber-lined bumper guards that actually look quite sporting. There are also headlight guards that give it a vintage British sports car feel and change the cars attitude quite a bit. Classic accommodations for two can be found inside the cozy MGB, but once youre behind the wheel youll discover that theres plenty of room and the driving position is quite good. The 3-spoke steering wheel looks suitably racy with its wooden rim and will go great with your string-backed driving gloves. The shifter falls readily to hand under spirited driving and the seats are grippy enough for the cars modest performance. The wooden dashboard was gone by 1971, but the classic Smiths instruments remain, giving a tantalizing glimpse into history. And while its not your primary source of entertainment in an MG, the AM/FM/cassette stereo is a thoughtful addition. The trunk is basic, but carries a full-sized spare, a jack, and a set of black carpets to make it look finished. Overhead you get a folding tan vinyl top thats older but still quite presentable, and it stows in seconds for proper open-air motoring. The engine is the same rugged, reliable 1798 cc inline-four that propelled MGs for years, but why mess with a good thing? Thanks to a single carburetor and basic ignition system, maintenance can be performed with a screwdriver, and it has a satisfyingly fat torque curve that makes the car feel quick and agile around town. Its nicely maintained under the bonnet, too, with the engine and transmission reportedly being rebuilt about 40,000 miles ago. Theres also a big oil cooler up front thats a popular MGB addition for spirited driving. The 4-speed manual is a joy to shift, especially with pedals easily placed for heel-and-toe maneuvers, and you may find yourself dropping down a gear in tunnels just to hear its brawny exhaust note (which was reportedly copied by Mazda engineers working on the first Miata). Braking is confident and handling competent thanks to the cars size and low center of gravity. And, of course, attractive alloy wheels have been fitted wearing fat 205/60/14 radials which are surely worlds better than the original Dunlops. Theres no better way to have fun with the top down than a vintage British roadster. Take this MGB home today!
This handsome 1979 Datsun 280ZX 2+2 represents the last of the Z-cars that changed the automotive landscape in the 1970s. As some newer models prove, cars like this will always have a place in our garages and in our hearts, and this Z is a fantastic way to enjoy the ride. Looking at the shape, its clear that theres a bit of E-Type Jag in there, maybe a hint of Corvette, and perhaps some MG, too. Fast, light, agile, and affordable, even today, this Z is a delight. Its also nicer than most, with an older repaint in the original silver metallic, which still looks contemporary and will never seem dated. Its also been fitted with a deeper chin spoiler that accentuates the long, lean, low look of the Z without taking away from the clean overall look. Cars like this were often put away as sunny-day drivers, and as a result, this one shows none of the bumps and bruises of the daily grind. Chrome was still in fashion, so there are plenty of bright pieces, including the stainless around the windows and along the B-pillar, all of which remains in good shape. Even things like the rubber bumpers are in decent shape with only light fading, suggesting that this car has led a sheltered existence. One of the Z-cars biggest successes is the interior, which is both sporting and functional. The bucket seats were designed by guys who knew the car would be used to its potential, so they have thicker bolsters than most cars of the period, and grippy cloth inserts instead of vinyl help hold you in place. Of course, all of this remains in original condition, showing only very minor wear aside from some light wear on the drivers seat and some aging to the plastic, most notably the steering wheel and console, but its not particularly noticeable. The dash is full of easy-to-read instruments, including a row of auxiliary gauges in the center, a look that is still evident today in the Nissan GT-R. This particular 280ZX is also luxurious, featuring factory A/C (needs to be serviced), power steering and brakes, and an AM/FM/CD stereo, all of which are fully functional. The rear seats (which fold down) are in excellent shape and the trunk offers a surprising amount of room for gear or travel. The L28E 2.8 liter inline-six is a fantastic motor. Torquey, yet eager to rev, it was enlarged to better suit American driving tastes that demanded low-end torque. It still has that same baritone wail that epitomizes big-horsepower inline-sixes, and because its a Nissan, its reliable and smooth. The engine bay is pretty tidy and retains almost all its original equipment, and that tangle of hoses is how the factory did it, but dont worry, it has all been regularly serviced and is in excellent running condition. A recent set of plug wires ensure that it fires easily and idles smoothly, so dont be afraid to rev it. Its quite clean underneath thanks to a lifetime in a warm climate, and it doesnt look like theres much deviation from stock, as it even wears its original catalytic converter. The 5-speed manual transmission is a pleasure to run through the gears and stylish alloy wheels wear 195/70/14 Goodyear blackwall radials for a proper sports car look. Today, as when it was new, this 280Z is a lot of performance for not a lot of money. Call today!
The Datsun Z cars put Japan on the performance car map, and this 1977 Datsun 280Z 2+2 tells you all you need to know about why these are such special vehicles. With an unusual copper metallic paint job, a beautifully preserved interior, and long-term ownership history, this is exactly the kind of car that you can enjoy today and let it appreciate tomorrow. The long nose styling of the Z car never seems to go out of fashion, and when combined with a sophisticated and elegant color like this, it creates a unique blend of performance and luxury that was found on cars like the Jaguar E-Type. The paint is original, and with that in mind its in fantastic shape. Not perfect, mind you, but for being 40 years old, its pretty impressive with a soft shine that is exactly what youd expect. Typical of the Japanese, the fit and alignment of the body panels are excellent, and for a car from the 70s, this one fits together amazingly well. Details like the chrome bumpers are in original condition, and their shiny surface suggests that this car has always been properly maintained. Badges, the front grille, the rear valence with distinctive Z taillights, all of it looks far younger than the cars age would suggest. The two-tone 2+2 interior gives the Z a lot more space, and while you wont want to put two adults in back for a cross-country trip, it greatly expanded the Zs practicality. The front buckets are well preserved, with no cracks or splits, and showing virtually zero wear even on the lighter surfaces. With its distinctive dashboard design, with speedo and tach in front of the driver and three auxiliary gauges mounted up high in the center, the Zs interior has been the prototype for all Japanese sports cars for decades. In this car, the dash pad, the door panels, and even the rear hatch area are exemplary, showing no signs of sun damage which is so common on these cars. A/C (needs to be serviced) and an AM/FM/cassette stereo are included, so theres no reason not to get in and have fun. Power comes from an upgraded 2.8 liter inline-six, which makes wonderful sounds akin to the great British roadsters of yore, not to mention all that turbine-smooth torque. The 280Z uses fuel injection, which looks complicated but is extremely reliable and delivers improved performance and economy. Showing signs of proper maintenance throughout its life, this Z fires up the first time every time and pulls cleanly, with a long list of recent maintenance items including the fuel pump, fuel injectors, hoses, clutch master and slave cylinder, a new muffler, and a re-sealed gas tank. The 4-speed manual transmission is wonderful to row through the gears, making this Z a fantastic car to run down your favorite twisty road. The all-independent suspension is agile, and none of its handling prowess is diminished by the added length of the 2+2 body. The original alloys are in very good condition, with no curb rash or corrosion, and they wear a set of 195/60/14 performance radials. In the same family since 1980, this very well preserved survivor is an affordable way to enjoy a vintage sports car thats also surprisingly practical. The Zs day is fast approaching, and clean examples like this one will continue to be in demand. Call today!
Act now, because this may be one of the last chances you have to buy a clean TR6 for under $25 grand. Prices have been inching up steadily on these awesome little roadsters, and this one-owner 1976 Triumph TR6 makes it easy to understand why. With a brawny inline-six, fantastic styling, and timeless charm, the TR6 is on the verge of becoming an A-list collectable. With a classic look augmented by a few smart upgrades, this is British sports car distilled to its purest form. Not fully restored, but beautifully maintained and upgraded as needed, the result is a bright red roadster with great lines and a ton of charisma. The TR6 might be the most handsome of all the Triumph TR-series roadsters, and although its merely an updated version of the TR4, the styling updates came together just right and the car is ideally proportioned with great style. The paint is 70s bright and in decent condition, although a professional buff would really wake it up, and it has a single pinstripe to highlight the little kick-up behind the door. It has a sporting look beyond merely cute roadster and thats likely why these cars are appreciating so rapidly. It also features the traditional blacked-out tail panel and big chrome bumpers with the rubber over-riders as required by the feds, but they look right today. This really is a great looking car. Settle yourself behind the wheel and youll discover its also a great driving car. Youll discover the joys of minimalism when youre in it, as the car seems to fit you like clothing and theres very little insulation between you and the driving experience. Nicely preserved black buckets offer good support for sporting driving, and the pedals are ideally placed for heel-and-toe shifting. That dashboard is genuine wood and filled with lovely Smiths gauges that are elementally British. A wood-rimmed steering wheel dances in your hands during aggressive driving, letting you know exactly what the front wheels are doing and the 4-speed shifts neatly, although the engine makes so much torque its often unnecessary. Theres even a decent amount of trunk space for a weekend trip and an AM/FM head unit for entertainment along the way. The black convertible top is in decent condition and stows easily, and if youre doing it right, youll only need it for emergencies. The reason for the top-down driving is the engine, which has one of the most wonderful exhaust notes this side of an Aston-Martin. The 2.5 liter inline six is plenty potent in the lightweight roadster and thanks to proper maintenance all its life, this one runs like it should. Twin carburetors inhale through a factory air filter assembly and the condition of all the little parts, clamps, wiring, and fasteners suggest someone has always loved this car. Its not detailed for show, but theres plenty of recent service work and you cant argue with how it runs. The aforementioned 4-speed shifts beautifully and thanks to a new clutch, action is light so youll feel right at home within a few miles of getting behind the wheel. The all-independent suspension is a pleasant surprise on a car in this price range and the exhaust system sounds spectacular a full bore. Minilite alloy wheels are always right on a British roadster, and the 185R15 Michelin redline radials are very much like what it would have worn originally. This TR6 is fully sorted, and has been owned by an experienced enthusiast, so it works as it should and is a delight to drive. Call today!
You wont find a more traditionally British car than this lovely 1994 Jaguar XJS drophead coupe. Painted high-visibility bright red, it shows just 35,706 original miles and has been a pampered toy since the day it was delivered. Look at the price, then decide whether some Old World luxury is just what youve been looking for. The XJS spent the last few years of its life evolving, with the pinnacle of that evolution being this convertible. The cars look was still striking, and make no mistake, this is a big, impressive car in every way. The sizzling red paint isnt subtle, but then again, the guy who originally bought this gorgeous ragtop didnt really care. It comes with a shine that only comes from that magic formula theyve perfected over the decades, and it still looks quite good today. Gaps are quite good, fitted by guys who understood that building a car with the leaping cat ornament was a privilege, and the drop-top does nothing to diminish the XJ-Ss flowing lines. The Euro-style headlights, body-colored bumpers, and flip-up gas cap are all in excellent condition, accented by a few well-chosen chrome accents. Like the Mercedes-Benz SL models, this is one affordable A-list celebrity that will make all your neighbors think youve hit the lottery. Nobody does leather like the British, and the top-of-the-line Jaguar is filled with aromatic hides that are sinfully soft and artfully designed. The bucket seats show almost no wear, again reinforcing the fact that this car has led a very sheltered existence, and the deep pile carpets feel luxurious even if youre not wearing $1000 driving moccasins. That burled walnut on the dash is real burled walnut, and its obvious that the Jaguar artisans went the extra mile to prove that the tactile sensations inside this car were as important as ergonomics, and perhaps more so. The gauges are simple and clearly marked, and it comes standard with just about every feature you could imagine in 1994, including climate control, power windows, cruise control, and a decent-sounding AM/FM/cassette stereo with a CD changer in the trunk. The 2+2 model obviously includes a back seat, but its really more of a beautifully upholstered storage area unless you have little kids or friends with short legs. The multi-layer convertible top seals up as tightly as a coupe and folds with the touch of a button, stashing itself with a very British-looking stack behind the seats. Even the trunk is beautifully upholstered and will carry a surprising amount of gear despite the presence of a full-sized spare and battery. While most folks think of an antiquated V12 when they see the XJS, the engine you really want is the 4.0 liter inline-six found in this car. Several hundred pounds lighter and making 90% as much horsepower, it transforms the XJS from boulevardier to agile back-road companion. Of course, thats the whole point of a Jaguar, right? The engine is completely unmodified and has been properly serviced, and by 1994, with Fords help, the old electrical gremlins had been permanently banished. Its backed by a quick-shifting automatic transmission and a supple yet athletic suspension that always seems to be on its toes. Powerful disc brakes live behind those handsome chrome BBS-style alloys, which wear 235/60/15 Michelin Pilot radials. I cant rightly explain why these cars are selling for tiny fractions of their original sticker prices, but the net result is that you can get an A-list European convertible for the price of something made in Korea.

It sure looks like the days of inexpensive Beetles are drawing to a close, which is probably a good thing. This cheerful red 1973 VW Super Beetle is still an economical way to join the hobby, and youll quickly find that theres a large group of folks out there who still think these are wonderful cars. Is there anything about the VW Beetle that hasnt already been said? Theres more than one reason why they have endured for decades as the worlds most popular car, and this one makes it easy to understand why theyve recently started taking off as legitimate collectables. The cheeky good looks impressive build quality all work together to make one fantastic hobby car. This Beetle has been lovingly maintained, and the fact that it has spent most of that life in a warm climate has helped. The 2013 repaint is pretty close to the original color and looks exactly right on the vintage runabout. Everything lines up neatly and the doors open and close with a precision that belies the cars affordable price tag, and while its not a show car, it still looks great. The Super Beetle offered a curved windshield, larger indicator lights, and subtly reshaped body panels, but the overall look is pure Beetle. The black interior is an excellent complement to the bright red bodywork, and the textured vinyl does a good job of keeping you cool even on warm days. The Super Beetle was upgraded inside, as well, including a more stylish instrument panel, although it still embraced the single gauge motif with the gas gauge inside the speedometer face. All the switchgear has a very no-nonsense look typical of German cars of the period and the leather-wrapped steering wheel has a substantial feel. The upholstery, carpets, and door panels are all in decent condition with very little wear (theres one small tear on the passengers seat), and it includes the original AM radio which might be due for an upgrade. The forward-mounted trunk is a little scruffy, but includes original cardboard panels to keep it tidy. The engine was rebuilt a few years ago to stock specifications, and the 1600 cc flat-four still whistles along without complaints. With just a recent tune-up and a Pertronix electronic ignition system, its an excellent runner that feels strong, especially with a 4-speed manual transmission behind it. It starts easily with that distinctive VW whistling exhaust note, and delivers adequate performance for around-town errands. It remains quite stock, from the carburetor to the generator to the air ducts, with the only visible upgrade being the chrome air cleaner. Stir the 4-speed manual properly and its entertaining to drive, thanks to a stable suspension and decent brakes, which never seem to work very hard on the lightweight VW. Its original underneath, so its not perfect, but its just about right for a car youre going to want to drive. Stock steel wheels carry chrome hubcaps and recent 165R15 wide whitewall radials that really dress the Bug up nicely. Youll probably find that everyone is your friend when you drive a Beetle, and the way the market is moving, they wont be this affordable for much longer. Call today!

Here is a good running and driving 1972 VW Beetle. It has the 65 HP Dual Port engine. It starts easy and runs smooth. The transmission shifts out good and the clutch is good. The paint is driver quality. The interior seats, headliner and door panels are in good condition. The carpet is good but not perfect. The gauges work as do all the lights. The wipers work as well. The passenger side rear pan has had rust and been patched over. There are a couple other small rust areas in pans but not bad. The tires look new and it has new wheels that look good. Overall a good VW Beetle that you can drive and enjoy. I do not know the exact miles on this car. The miles shown are what the odometer reads and I am assuming it has rolled over.
