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!
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!
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!
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.

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!
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!
In the early 90s, Japanese automakers pulled out all the stops and built some of the most impressive sports cars of the period. Near the top of the list was the Nissan 300ZX, whose shark-like looks, impressive handling, and user-friendly nature make it a great choice for affordable fun today. This 1994 Nissan 300ZX convertible is a fine example with the desirable 5-speed manual transmission, so its ready for top-down fun this summer. The 300ZX looks even better as a convertible than as a hatchback, and the rock-solid platform doesnt seem to mind being topless one bit. Shiny black paint makes the sporty ragtop look like a million bucks, emphasizing the long, low shape and with just 67,511 original miles, this one is remarkably well preserved. Nissans paint quality was quite good and its held up reasonably well over the past two decades. Its not perfect, of course, and there are signs of use and age, but this car will still get peoples attention as it cruises through traffic and a professional buff job and a visit to the paintless dent guy would take it up a notch. The headlights, which are one of the Zs most distinctive features, remain clear and bright (someone added aftermarket clear marker lights that look trick), and the flush-fitting tonneau cover gives it a sleek profile when the tops down. Theres little doubt that this car was built by and for drivers when you climb inside. The black leather buckets are firm and grippy, holding you in place during spirited driving but remaining comfortable for long-distance hauls, too. The dash is low, giving excellent sight lines and in typical Japanese fashion, all the controls are at your fingertips on short stalks or pods that line the outer edges of the instrument panel. Entertainment and HVAC sweep down the center stack and end in the shiny shifter for the highly-desired 5-speed manual transmission. As Nissans flagship, everything was standard in the Z, particularly the convertible, including A/C, power windows and locks, and a great-sounding AM/FM/cassette stereo system. The leathers in excellent shape, with only the drivers seat showing any notable wear, the carpets are extremely nice, and theres a bit of storage behind the seats as well as a somewhat useful trunk out back. A black canvas top has an impressive fit with great weather seals that make this convertible close up like a coupe and that roll hoop gives it impressive rigidity that you can feel. The naturally-aspirated 3.0-liter DOHC V6 was the mid-level engine in the 300ZX, and the only one available in the convertible. With 222 horsepower on tap, performance is energetic, even today, and it makes a wonderful guttural growl at full throttle. These engines proved to be virtually indestructible in the real world, and while they respond well to modifications, this one is completely stock. It starts quickly and easily, just as youd expect from Nissan, idles perfectly, and actually pulls down decent fuel economy as long as youre not stomping on the loud pedal all the time. Handling is agile, but they gave the convertible a softer edge, so its more of a grand touring machine, albeit with powerful brakes and an all-independent suspension. Attractive 16-inch alloy wheels still look stylish and wear 225/50/16 performance radials. A fast, fun, reliable convertible that you dont see very often and still ready to be your daily driver.

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!
When gas prices spiked to more than $5/gallon in 2006 and 2007, cars like this 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300CDT were suddenly red hot. With durable and thrifty diesel engines, handsome good looks, and a bit of collector appeal, diesel Mercedes-Benz automobiles can be great collector cars or awesome daily drivers. And given the way this handsome coupe looks and drives, you might just want to drive it every chance you get. Wearing a period-appropriate AMG body kit and a handsome gold paint job, this 300CDT is straight out of the 80s. But thats a good thing, because these cars are virtually indestructible and are arguably the last Mercedes-Benzes built by engineers rather than the marketing department. Styling is conservative, but the body kit makes it look sporting and the coupe is vastly more desirable than the more common sedans and wagons (and rarer, to boot!). Thats original paint and showcases the quality workmanship that the three-pointed star represents, because it still shines up nicely and looks great. Its not perfect, of course, but its quite presentable and the car still has that rock solid feel for which Mercedes-Benzes are famous. Someone has obviously loved this car all its life and it hasnt spent any time in the snow or salt, so the bodywork should last as long as the engine... which can be many, many years yet. These are VERY hard to kill. Inside its typical Mercedes-Benz luxury with supportive bucket seats that are still in great shape with leather upholstery thats as tough as iron yet all day comfortable. The giant steering wheel and simple instruments with big, white letters are trademarks that were part of the Mercedes mystique for decades and it all works properly. The wood paneling is real wood and the carpets are plush to help control noise from the diesel up front. It includes a decent-sounding AM/FM/cassette stereo and features like cold factory A/C, power windows, power locks, cruise control, and a sunroof overhead. The doors close with a heavy THUNK and going down the road the car feels indestructible, so even with its modest performance, it still represents the very top-of-the-line. The back seat is comfortable enough for a pair of adults and the spacious trunk will carry just about anything you need on a long road trip. Theres also an amplifier for the stereo and a CD changer. The 3.0 liter inline-5 diesel engine is legendary around the world for its reliability. As long as theres fuel and air, itll run. It looks complicated, but its not, and with a little experience, you should be able to keep it in top condition for many tens of thousands of miles. It shows about 177,000 miles, but in Mercedes-Benz diesel terms, thats barely broken-in, so dont let the numbers scare you. And youll be shocked by the fuel economy on this one, turning long highway drives into an endurance test between the car and your bladder. Ride quality is German firm, brakes are effective, and it cruises serenely at high speeds without any real effort at all. Theres a bit of the usual diesel clatter from under the hood, but it quiets down at speed and the automatic transmission shifts smoothly. Underneath, you can see theres no evidence of this car ever being rusty or wrecked and it sits on 80s cool 5-spoke wheels and 225/50/16 performance radials. Nicely documented with the factory manuals and lots of receipts, this is an unusual find thats affordable, practical, stylish, and sooner or later it will be very much in demand. Call today!
Movie star looks on a Wal-Mart budget is the magic of the R107 Mercedes-Benz SL. Cars like this 1979 450SL convertible pack all kinds of charisma, great performance, and bulletproof hardware, they look like they should cost a million bucks, yet are remarkably affordable. If you want to get noticed in a car, this is probably the most affordable way to do it! Hard to beat a yellow 2-seat convertible and even conservative Mercedes-Benz put bright paint colors on their color chart in 1979 knowing that some folks just wouldnt have it any other way. Its actually more of a cream, and given the impressive quality of these cars, it is quite possible that this one is still wearing its original paint. Sure, it might show a few signs of its four decades of life, but theres absolutely no need for a repaint if you just want to drive and have some fun. Most importantly, this is a southern car so it hasnt been slogging through winter weather for years and as a result the doors slam with that precision that you almost cant find today. Americans have grown accustomed to the heavy rubber bumpers so they give the car a substantial look and remain in very good shape, as does the rest of the bright trim, and a pinstripe accentuates the clean styling. The tan leather interior is a fantastic upgrade over the usual MB-Tex vinyl that was standard equipment in these cars. Again, its unlike Mercedes to be so flashy, but it totally works in this 2-seater. The seat covers have some stretching but remain quite inviting, while parts like the door panels and dash pad are in very good condition and the deep, plush carpets havent faded in the sun, another very good sign. A lot of woodgraining gives it an upscale look, including the center console that is actually real wood. These cars came loaded with every feature they could think of in 1979, including power windows and locks, cold A/C, and even a rear defroster in the removable hardtop. Theres also a neatly installed AM/FM/CD stereo head unit to replace the original Blaupunkt unit, and its a big improvement. The trunk is reasonably spacious and beautifully finished with matching carpets and the car includes both a 3-year-old canvas convertible top and a matching cream hardtop. The 4.5-liter V8 engine really needs no introduction. Powering Mercedes-Benz automobiles for a decade, it is smooth and torquey, and if properly maintained, will run practically forever. This one starts easily and idles with a precise mechanical feeling thats quite different than the isolation chambers were used to today, but no less pleasant. Fuel injection gives it sharp throttle response and the flexible power curve makes it fast without feeling like its working too hard and it comes with maintenance records and the all-important timing chain upgrade, so you can buy with confidence. A 3-speed automatic transmission seems a little syrupy at first, but youll find that the faster you go, the better it seems to work. In fact, that goes for the suspension and brakes, too, which were bred for the autobahn and make this car supremely competent on American roads. The exhaust has a pleasant bubbly V8 sound and those wheels from a later SL give it a distinctively sporty look and are wrapped in new 215/60/15 radials. These cars remain perennial best-sellers here at Streetside Classics because they represent performance, style, and value, and this one is no exception. Call today!
By now youve noticed the trend in Volkswagen Beetles, and theyre not getting cheaper. This 1971 VW Super Beetle convertible is a great example of still-affordable fun, though, with a classic color combination, a solid structure, and all the charm that came standard with every single one they ever built. This jaunty little Beetle convertible should look instantly familiar to just about anyone, and painting it white with black accents gives it a somewhat aggressive look that suits it just fine. It sure looks like this tidy ragtop has lived a good life and with a few tasteful upgrades, it remains one of the better specimens weve featured. That means paint that shines up nicely without looking over-done, a good fit to the doors thats typical of these sturdy little cars, and shiny chrome bumpers that look great against the monochromatic paint. Theres not a lot of trim on the 71 models but what is there all looks quite good, from the chrome bumpers to the bright headlight rings to the VOLKSWAGEN emblem on the engine cover. Clear parking light lenses update the look a bit and as a 1971 model, it still carries the preferred small taillights, although these have the traditional three-color lenses for a unique look. All Beetles had vinyl upholstery when they were new, and we love the simple black buckets with white piping to add some contrast. That piping, combined with body-colored accents, new black carpets, andh matching door panels, gives it a very finished, high-quality look. The dash is in good condition and the single pod ahead of the driver carries the big round speedometer with integral fuel gauge thats the extent of Beetle instrumentation. The entertainment system has been upgraded to an AM/FM/CD stereo head unit and the custom shifter improves shift feel. Overhead, theres a fresh black convertible top that fits as well as any weve ever seen on a Beetle, and includes a correct glass rear window and interior headliner that makes the VW feel a lot plusher than youd expect. The front trunk compartment is clean, although not totally finished and could have a reproduction mat set installed to really take it up a notch. The traditional 1600 cc VW flat-four engine is about as simple and reliable as machines get, and thanks to proper maintenance, it runs as well as youd expect. It isnt detailed for show, but it does have a well-maintained vibe and some new components, and it hasnt been modified like so many of its siblings. It starts easily, idles well, and pulls the cute little Bug around with enough enthusiasm to make it fun to drive. Underneath, there are clean floor pans (likely replacements, which really isnt a big deal for VW lovers), some recent suspension work, and a 4-speed manual transmission with well-spaced ratios that make the most of the engines modest output. Those black wheels resemble early Minilites and add a sporty look, especially with slightly oversized 165R15 Goodyear radials that fill the fenders quite nicely. Just a well-loved and well-maintained Bug ragtop thats ready to enjoy. You could get one for less, but why bother fixing one up when you can have this one as a turn-key package? Call today!
This 1972 Volkswagen dune buggy is the automobile distilled into pure fun. Sure, its still transportation, but this car was built to put a big grin on your face and nothing else. It offers lots of recent work, so its not only great looking but also ready to enjoy. We can all but guarantee youll be the only guy tooling around in one of these even though the look is instantly familiar. It is a Meyers Manx, which is the original VW dune buggy, although this is strictly a 2-seater thanks to the big stereo speaker box in the rear deck area. The look is familiar, of course, and the whole design is very professional and well-executed so nothing looks sub-standard. Repainted two years ago, the fiberglass is in good condition with no major signs of age and that brilliant green paint offers a great gloss thats quite appropriate to something of this vintage. This is motoring distilled down to its barest essence, so there isnt much chrome, but it does have a bunch of lights up front and that big, upright windshield that is framed by the built-in roll cage. In back, the VW Beetle engine and its wild exhaust system becomes an integral part of the overall look and its fascinating to watch this sucker run down the road. More minimalism inside where fresh Procar bucket seats and RJS harnesses keep you in place. The vinyl upholstery wears well and is weather-resistant enough for its alfresco duties in the open VW. Hop over the side of the tub and its easy to settle in behind the wheel and youll find that the driving position is more early British roadster than German economy car, and with those big pontoon fenders out there, you can clip apexes more easily than you ever thought possible. Creature comforts are few and thats entirely the point here; anything that wasnt necessary for the job of having fun was omitted. That means no windshield wipers, no heater, no windows, but it does have that kickin stereo system that works well even when youre screaming along the beaches. The VWs original gauge pod is joined by a Sun Super Tach, as well as a Grant GT steering wheel and a toggle switch for the headlights. Sisal floor coverings are institutional and easy to maintain, which is this cars mantra. VWs air-cooled flat four needs no introduction, and this 1600 cc unit provides plenty of power for the flyweight dune buggy. Painted bright green to match the bodywork, the engine is mostly stock to keep it reliable, although its nicely dressed with a bit of chrome. The exotic exhaust system is from EMPI and includes the standard muffler shown here as well as a stack setup for really running off-road. The Beetles 4-speed manual transmission and floor pan made the transition intact and with the low center of gravity, handling is adept. Obviously this was never someones winter beater, so the underside remains in very good order with no glaring trouble spots. Lots of finned aluminum helps with the air-cooled engine at seed and youll undoubtedly find that this car loves to play. The suspension, transmission, and rear differential were rebuilt and the undercarriage is protected with a light dusting of undercoating so you dont have to worry about going into the rough. Simple steel wheels with baby moon hubcaps are the ideal 60s look on a Manx and carry sharply staggered 175/65/15 front and 235/70/15 rear blackwall radials. A party on wheels, this VW dune buggy recalls an era when the Beach Boys were on the radio and cars were all about having fun. Call today!
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!

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.
