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 cars in need of a new home that caught our eye.
Developed as a competitor to the Datsun Z-car, the 1978 Toyota Supra was based off the marque's Celica platform but was longer, wider, and featured a larger engine. In 1979, the first Supra exports hit the U.S. with a few better options than were available the previous year, and by 1986 - after several redesigns - the Celica and the Supra became two completely separate cars. The 1987 year model included an optional turbocharged version, setting the stage for the most desirable Supra made.
If you like power and distinction, then you’ll love this 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am restomod. It’s currently up for sale through Streetside Classics at an asking price of $54,995, and you can make an offer on the car right here. This example emits a prowess that dates back to the muscle car battle of yesteryear. Take it to your local car show and you’ll see the masses flock to it while at a mere standstill. Get behind the wheel of this Trans Am restomod and it becomes downright irresistible. No matter how you look at it, this car is a beauty and a beast–in all the right ways. It’s professionally built and equipped with a slew of modern upgrades for an exhilarating driving experience with abundant power. Since the build, this Pontiac Firebird Trans Am has only clocked 1,395 miles.
In addition cool cars like a Saleen Challenger and custom Bronco, another vehicle being auctioned off from the vast George Shinn Collection is this awesome 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air stock car. Although the car's actual racing history is unknown, this '57 Chevy was previously owned by former NASCAR driver, "Little" Bud Moore, who passed away in 2017 – not to be confused with NASCAR Hall of Famer and former driver, crew chief and team owner, Bud Moore who also passed away that same year.
Like other cars from Shinn's collection, the 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air stock car will be auctioned off at no reserve by GAA Classic Cars, and a portion of the seller's proceeds will be donated to benefit the ALS Association.
AutoBarn Classic Cars is offering you the opportunity to own this gorgeous 1961 Chevrolet Impala. Beach days are ahead with this partially restored sedan from the early '60s, and it comes complete with a surfboard attached to the roof. And with a spacious interior, you can fit all your friends along with everything else needed for the perfect beach adventure.
If you’ve been looking for a clean, unique first-generation Ford Bronco, by now you know prices are on the rise. That’s why having the opportunity to bid on this customized 1970 Ford Bronco at no reserve is intriguing. GAA Classic Cars says it’s part of the George Shinn Collection, so you know the fit and finish is going to be high.
Add some color to your garage with this 1986 Chevrolet Corvette Indy Pace Car. Yellow pace cars are considered to be a bit more desirable because the actual pace car was a yellow convertible. It’s also due to the fact that just over 700 yellow convertibles were manufactured in 1986. If you have dreamed of owning that year's Indy 500 tribute car but do not desire merely another convertible with a sticker package, you could at least purchase one in the correct color. This is a very low-mileage car Corvette with a consigner-stated 7,258 miles. It’s in excellent condition with all of the correct badging and wheels. It’s being offered up for sale through Classic Auto Mall for $35,000, and you can make an offer on the ‘Vette right here.
What you see here is an absolutely stunning 1941 Cadillac Series 62 Deluxe Coupe in excellent condition both inside and out. This car is on consignment with Classic Car Investments from a private collector in town who is reducing cars in his collection. This vehicle has been extremely well taken care of and maintained; it is arguably one of the finest ‘41 Cadillac Coupes you will ever come across. It also has just a little over 51,000 miles clocked on the odometer.
Chicago Car Club is excited to offer you the opportunity to own this beautiful blue 1965 Pontiac GTO convertible. Well-maintained and garage-kept, this beauty was restored about 20 years ago and is still in fantastic shape. This sleek convertible is bound to turn a few heads whether pulling in to the local car show hangout or just cruising over to the grocery store.
The 1962 Chevrolet Corvette is the last year of the first-generation run of the Corvette. It’s also evident how much of a precursor the 1962 was for the ultra-popular Sting Ray body style that would soon follow. Not only that, it was the last year of the solid-axle Corvettes, as they would turn over into a rear-independent suspension layout in 1963 - something the Corvette has become well-known for over the decades since. This is all a setup to explain why the 1962 Corvette was such a special car, and why finding one is always a treat for any collector, but it takes a special kind of collector to see the potential in this barn find.
