The classic and collector car market is a fantastically diverse tapestry of vehicles from every breed and era. Delving into the classifieds reveals some real gems waiting to find a new home with both enthusiasts and serious collectors alike. Every week we’ll be highlighting the top 10 cars in need of a new home that caught our eye.
Two years into production, the 1966 Chevy Chevelle was right on the cusp of an overhaul that would turn the nameplate into the most recognizable muscle car of all time. In addition, it was a car that was recently restyled for the 1966 and 1967 year models only. This body style is both highly sought after, and completely underrated. When examples like this Chevelle from Motor City Classics become available, they don’t stay on the market for very long.
There are few vintage off-road vehicles which will cause quite the same stir as this 1968 Ford Bronco. It makes a strong statement from the moment you first lay eyes on it, thanks to an almost electric paint job and some bold modifications. Just as interesting are a few key modern updates that overall don’t change the original character of this SUV.
This is something out of a fairytale. Well, almost. Motorcar Gallery in Fort Lauderdale, Florida is selling a rare beauty that is the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS. Finished in the gorgeous Vivid Rallye Green and White exterior, this classic is one of only 311 L89 Camaros built in 1969. To top it all off, the 1969 Camaro SS pictured here has just 10,630 on the odometer. It practically has its entire life ahead of it, and will certainly only go up in value.
Now this is a pony car! The GT500 428 Cobra Jet is famed for its 7.0-liter V8 engine and the Shelby’s excellent motorsport engineering. This prime 335 horsepower example is currently listed with Streetside Classics and has covered just over 51,600 miles.
$129,995 buys you what is said to be 1 of 304 Shelby GT500s built in this Candy Apple Red during 1969.
The Ford GT40 is a legendary car that is fully deserving of its place in history. The model that beat Ferrari at its own game, this icon has secured a space in everyone’s dream garage, right? This handsome Gulf liveried car could actually be in your real garage!
While not a real GT40, such a car is worth a huge chunk of change today, this Superformance MK1 comes very close. Built with a great level of craftsmanship, this rolling chassis awaits the beating heart of your choice.
It might be famed for its role in the Back to the Future movies, but the DMC-12 is a car that’s worthy of its own feature film. Its naked stainless steal bodywork, gullwing doors, and distinctive wedge profile makes it a movie star in its own right.
This immaculate example is in such good condition, it’s as if it time traveled back from 1981.
Kept by its current owner for 40 years, this is a rare opportunity to obtain this beautifully restored Shelby Mustang. Finished in a rarely seen combination of gold and blue, it certainly stands out from the crowd.
Chassis STK 2601 is in its correct factory specification, complete with that prestigious 428 Ci FE Cobra Jet motor.
We all love the characterful looks of classic cars, but sometimes their lack of modern performance and reliability can become grating. The solution? This 2013 Corvette by Karl Custom.
Based on a 2013 Chevrolet Corvette, this American sports car plays homage to the iconic C2 Corvette Stingray. Far from a Frankenstein creation, the retro looks of its ancestor actually suits this potent 6.2-liter C6. It’s the best of both worlds.
This genuine CSX serial numbered continuation ticks all of the boxes! Wearing Guardsmen Blue with traditional Wimbledon White striping, this iconic car looks ready to do business. An aluminum Shelby 427 FE 468 V8 under the hood highlights that it’s not just a pretty face.
550-horsepower, manual transmission, beautiful lightweight body. Where do we sign up?
The 2005 Ford GT built to celebrate 100 years of the blue oval is already a fast appreciating asset, with collectors clambering for the supercharged V8 supercar. This example is not only in a very fetching color scheme, but it has also only covered 1400 miles to date!
This practically brand-new Ford GT is pristine, and exactly the sort with high investment potential. Or you could take the view that it deserves a few more miles on its odometer!
When the IMSA North American Road Racing series decided to allow full tube frame cars to compete, the race was on to take advantage of this new lightweight construction method. In 1977 John Greenwood and Bob Riley of the Protofab team created a tubular Corvette.
This racer is one of only two ever built and features an extensive aerodynamic package, not to mention 750-horsepower aluminum big block motor requisitioned by racer John Paul Sr.
