What a diverse market the collector car industry represents. Every week, the Motorious editorial staff does a dive into the classified section of the site to find the cars for sale that we would want to buy for ourselves. These cars are more than worthy of a new garage, and we're thrilled to be able to share our picks with the readers each week. Here is a list of cars to check out as we roll into Independence Day weekend.

Original Shelby 427 S/C Cobra

While there are some nice reproduction models out there, when it comes to collecting nothing beats having the original 1967 Shelby Cobra. One of the few made back in the 60s is now heading back to the market and it’s expected to fetch millions.

Secure This Rare F12 N-Largo Edition F12

A rightful successor to the legendary 599, the F12berlinetta represented the next step up for the Italian automaker’s forward mid-engined design. A sprint to 62-mph could be accomplished in exactly 3.1-seconds and the car was capable of beating its predecessor around the Fiorano test circuit by a full second. Styling was improved as well with sharpened body lines and a sportier overall look that helped to increase downforce. On top of having an already long list of improvements, the F12berlinetta was also well-equipped with all that Ferrari had to offer the model at the time and when NOVITEC, the leading refinement specialist for Ferraris gets a hold of one, the results are almost unbelievable. Power is bumped to 781-horsepower and a wide body boosts aerodynamic efficiency.

Buick’s Contribution To The Pinnacle Of GM Muscle

In 1970, GM lifted its ban on engines larger than 400-cid for the A-Body. This move resulted in a push from all divisions to fit the largest big block possible under the hood of some of their most popular muscle cars. Chevy had the Chevelle, Pontiac the GTO, and the 442 was Oldsmobile’s offering. All now available with a 454-cid or larger engine. Buick’s contribution however, the GS-455 was very competitive with all of these offerings. Wanting to stand out from the crowded segment of high-performance GM muscle, Buick decided to up the ante with the addition of a special option group and in doing so created a legendary name, the GSX.

1965 Backdraft Racing Shelby Cobra: Low Mileage And Well Appointed

Starting with Ford’s 3.6-liter V8 engine, Shelby soon discovered just how versatile the AC Cobra platform could be. With a Jaguar E-Type rear end, literally any of Ford’s engine and transmission options could be adapted and displacement was soon bumped up to 4.3-liters. Over the next few years Shelby continued his search for the right engine. After experimenting with 390-cid big blocks, the 427-cid engine was finally settled on and Shelby ended up producing a total of 348 examples over a two-year period. Although the Shelby Cobra seemed to have been perfected Shelby did not stop trying to make the car better. However, the popularity of the design was in many ways bigger than the man that had created it and many others have produced their own versions over the years. One such company is Backdraft Racing.

1968 Plymouth GTX: The Gentleman’s Muscle Car

Plymouth only made 410 examples of the 1968 Plymouth GTX. With an aggressive stance and smooth and curvaceous body lines, the design was all muscle car when it came to exterior styling. This theme continued on under the hood with some of the most legendary Mopar muscle engine options, one of which was the 426-cid HEMI. Where this car really stood out from the sea of Chrysler Corp.’s muscle cars is the interior and ride quality. A heavy-duty suspension system was standard and interior appointments left nothing to be desired.
