This 1969 Ford Bronco was purchased by the selling dealer out of Arkansas in 2012, shortly after a fiberglass body and injected 5.0L V8 were added.

This 1960 Wolseley 6/99 is a rare sight with factory LHD and its claimed-original red leather interior, and overall presents as a nice looking driver-level example of the Pininfarina-styled, straight-six powered luxury sedan. The seller says it still runs well, but will need new tires to be a safe driver. Originally sold new in Canada, the car sounds to be mostly complete as well, with the ad noting that often-missing factory items like the jack, wheel chock and starting handle are all included. Find it here on Craigslist in Redwood City, California for $4,500 or trade for listed vehicles. Special thanks to BaT reader Kyle K. for this submission.
This 1974 Lola T332 is a rebuild of chassis HU32B, which was crashed and destroyed at Road America that same year.

The car is sold with logbooks and an FIA HTP, was reportedly the winner of 2009’s Australian Vintage GP. Says the seller: “Immaculate condition, fully sorted, turnkey and race-ready. No computers, no anti-skid brakes, no sissy traction control.” Find it here on Craigslist in Prescott, Arizona for $169k. Special thanks to BaT reader flyby69 for this submission.
This 1967 Maserati Quattroporte is a first-generation series 2 car that’s had its original 4.1 liter quad-cam V8 swapped for a carb-topped 350 SBC. Though the seller believes it to be solid and provides a few promising looking underside photos, the car is obviously in need of full restoration and could still be harboring hidden corrosion as well. Regardless, it sounds to be largely complete excluding the front bumper (and original engine), and from here certainly seems worth saving as one of just 776 Tipo AM107 QP’s made. Find it here on Craigslist in Brentwood, California for $12,500. Special thanks to BaT reader Dan H. for this submission.
There’s something incredibly appealing about older round-cab Unimogs, especially in bright colors sitting over cartoonishly large tires. Doka’s are particularly cool, allowing room for friends and family to ride along over said rubber, each corner driven via massive portal axles in turn fed via a multitude of forward and reverse gears. You sit up high, rowing countless levers atop a large, torquey diesel six, making slow but unstoppable progress regardless of the terrain.
Fortunately the 1978 example that sold for $67k on BaT Auctions this past Thursday had factory “super-fast” gearing, allowing for freeway speeds in excess of 60 MPH. Originally a Swiss fire truck, it was imported in 2007, quickly traded its service box for a three-way hydraulic tipper bed, and seemed to have been well-cared for over the years. The final day of bidding spawned a 10+ way bid war, resulting in a high offer that more than doubled in just under three hours, ultimately netting the buyer their own chance to pilot the big citrus-colored beast.
The purposefully-built Sunbeam Tiger currently on auction, lot #9738, had us at BaT HQ discussing the racing history of the marque. We’ve seen Tigers campaigned on vintage road circuits, and knew about Doane Spencer’s beautiful (and successful) Tiger. When we looked into the Tiger’s competition history, we were impressed to learn about the 1,2,3, finish in its debut on the 1964 Geneva Rally.
This video inspiration puts you in the car with Peter Harper at the wheel and Ian Hall calling the pace notes. “Turn your volume up old boy, I can’t hear you. Is that better? That’s better.” Yes, please turn your volume up as they lay the rubber down en route to a 6:58 finish in the stage and a fourth-place overall in the 1965 Monte Carlo Rally and be inspired.

This 1971 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 NART Spyder (chassis 14299) began life as a standard Daytona delivered to the Greenwich, Connecticut dealership of Luigi Chinetti. Returned to the legendary dealer in 1975, it was then shipped along with three additional Daytonas to Michelotti, who already had an established relationship building racers for Chinett’s North American Racing Team. Constructed over a period of two years, a new, wedge-shaped body and redesigned interior were fitted to each of these cars. This one was given to Chinetti’s wife Marion but saw limited use, and is now described as unrestored and fully functional including A/C. Find it here at Hyman in Saint Louis, Missouri for $995k.
This 1975 Lancia Stratos HF is said to be one of around three dozen finished by the famed Jolly Club race team of Milan, out of a total run of ~500. The car looks incredible in blue over bronze-finished factory wheels, and is reported to have the equivalent of just ~8k miles despite being shuffled around by a fair number of past owners. Condition is described as original and unrestored with a “wonderful patina throughout,” and an included history file contains historical photos, documents and more. Find it here on Classic Driver at the Porsche Classic Center in Heteren, Netherlands for 395k euros (~$465k USD today).
This 1970 TVR Vixen is one of 438 Series 2 examples produced, and has traded its original 1.6 OHV Ford Kent four for a 2.0 Zetec twin-cam from the same marque. The car looks good throughout following a claimed, older restoration, and is offered with a choice of wheels as well as the original engine. Performance should be much improved with the modern 16V, and we appreciate that cosmetics remain largely stock. Find it here on Craigslist somewhere in Utah for $27,500.
A few of the comments that stood out to us yesterday:
“Wonderful memories that this boat refreshes for me. In the late 50’s my WWII vet father began working on a Skitow which is very similar to this one. He lofted it in the family garage and my older brother and I spent countless hours in there with him while he built all the oak frames and steam bent the chines in a piece of galvanized downspout with one end soldered closed then booked the water with an old naphtha blowtorch. The smell of oak sawdust and that powdered Weldwood waterproof glue he…”
“@Brontosaurus – Agreed on all counts. My favorite aesthetic point on the FD – other than the beautiful, organis exterior styling – is the view from the driver’s seat. The way the windshield, door panels, and console form a cocoon around your. Everything in perfect reach. Driver focused. The tach dead center in the display. Pure business.
I have a 94 Touring, White/black that I picked up three years ago. It was a Mazda dealer’s toy and was totally dealer serviced. Just under 30K…”
This just in from the buyer of the 1953 Studebaker Commander La Carrera Racer that was listed on BaT Auctions 02/22/17 (link):
“I’ve been a member since August 2014, and I’m writing with my Success Story. It starts with my confession that I’m old school — I can count on one hand the number of items that I’ve ever purchased off the Internet. However, in mid-February 2017 when I first laid eyes on BaT auction lot # 3292, the 1953 Studebaker Commander LCP Racecar named Los Zorros (aka the Silver Fox), it was love at first sight!
This 1960 Porsche 356B is a T5 coupe that was acquired by the seller in Alaska in 2014 from its prior owner of 15 years.

This 1998 Mercedes-Benz SL500 was originally sold in Southern California and remained with the first owner through March of 2015.
