The Greensboro Auto Auction sold many cars last weekend, but these noteworthy models still need a home.
The Greensboro Auto Auction was full of great cars that found new homes over the weekend. Everything from muscle cars to off-roaders went under the hammer, but there were a few lots that failed to sell after not meeting their reserve. These unwanted beauties are still up for grabs.
1976 Jeep CJ-5
Freshly restored just 500 miles ago, and complete with its canvas top, this immaculate CJ-5 is an American icon. With its roots deep in the military, this 1970s model features a few creature comforts such as leather seats.
Its 232 cubic-inch inline six-cylinder engine and all-wheel drive ensures that this 4x4 is capable of fording every stream and climbing every mountain.
Bidding reached $8,000 but a little more was required for its current owner to part with the hardy Jeep.
2003 Hummer H2 Custom
If you’re looking for the off-roading capabilities of the Jeep, but want to make a statement, there’s always this Hummer H2. Its towering hight and short overhangs means that it will happily overcome whatever obstacles lay in its path, but the eye-catching paintwork is about as far from camouflage green as you can get.
The yellow and orange exterior certainly won’t be for everyone, but for those wanting to stand out from the crowd… Here you go.
People may mock the Baywatch inspired exterior, but peering through that hood scoop is a supercharged 6.0-liter LSX B15 engine with a reported output of 700-horsepower. Not laughing now, are they?
Bidding reached $27,500 before stalling.
1929 Ford Model A
This is a real beauty! A vintage Ford Model A hit the auction block on Friday, but didn’t meet its reserve price — this may be because there were quite a few other Model As at this auction. It’s a shame either way as this 201 cubic-inch four cylinder-engined classic is in great condition.
Endowed with contrasting white wheels, period rumble seat, and side mounted spare wheel, this vintage Ford deserves a place in your collection.
Bidding went as high as $16,000.
2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS Transformers Edition
While appearing like any other Camaro from a far, this car is in fact a special edition in disguise. Following on from its huge success in the Transformers franchise as the character of Bumblebee, Chevrolet produced 1500 Transformer limited edition cars complete with Autobot shields.
Being based on an SS model, there’s a 6.2-liter V8 under the hood packing 400hp to back up its distinctive looks. It’s well equipped in other areas too, thanks to being kitted out with just about every optional extra available. This 2010 car had covered just over 7700 miles from new making it a well preserved example of the limited run car.
The highest bid for this car was $21,000.
1969 Chevrolet Camero Z28
If you’d rather go old-school Bumblebee, check out this 1969 Camero. The classic muscle car is a high-performance Z28 model that was built at the Norwood factory. Its 302 cubic-inch V8 Engine wasn’t enough to tempt auction-goers beyond to its reserve price, with bids reaching $42,000.
2018 Dodge Demon
Want a Dodge Demon but don’t want to join a waiting list? This 24-mile example is still wrapped in its factory plastic and was being auctioned as an opportunity to skip a lengthy line.
Its muscular bodywork and stealthy spec gives this Dodge a truly menacing look befitting of its name. The star of this car is of course its 840-hp 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI SRT V8 engine, a unit capable of launching the Demon from 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds.
Bidding reached $114,000 — some $29K over list price — but this was still less than the seller wanted in order to part with this brand-new Dodge.
