1929 Chevrolet Model A C Coupe
When the Ford Motor Company was manufacturing as many four-cylinder Model A cars as possible, Chevrolet tried to compete with the furious pace. Allen found this relic from that era in a garage where it had sat idly for years, but despite its vintage, it was in good condition and didn't take much work to bring up to speed.
He bought it for $10,000 and sold it for $12,500. This is not exactly a major profit for a flip, but in this case Allen was motivated by something other than money. "I sold it to a gentleman with a rare condition, and his doctor had given him two years to live," he said. "I sold him the car on the condition that I would buy it back from his family after he died."
1963 Chevrolet C10
Fans of the "Twilight" movie saga will recognize this truck as the one driven by main character Bella Swan. Allen bought it for $10,000 and sold it to a very committed fan of the movies for $14,000.
The new owner had plans for the truck beyond driving it. She took it to conventions and charged attendees to have their pictures taken with it, and donated the money to the Locks of Love charity.
1965 Chevrolet Impala
Flat 12 Gallery is around the corner from another classic car dealership. This situation is a little complicated, as the dealership is owned by Jeff Allen's father, Tom Souter. Despite the good-natured competition between the two, many of the cars Allen has flipped were bought from his father, including this 1965 Impala.
Allen bought the car so that his fiancee Meg would have a suitable ride for her roller derby matches. "We had a pinstriper come in and paint the girl on the side of the car," he said. It was later sold for $8,000, and he still misses it. "That car was so cool, I would buy that car back today if it was around," he said.
