1971 Pontiac GTO Convertible Is Rare Poncho Muscle
A lot of people are going stir crazy sitting in their homes at the moment. And while take a drive in your car provides an out, cruising around is much better in a big vintage convertible like this 1971 Pontiac GTO. If you’ve never seen one of these before or it’s been a long time there’s good reason: only 678 GTO convertibles were made by Pontiac for the 1971 model year. That makes this rare example very much a collectible, and you have a chance to make it yours through Raleigh Classic Car Auctions.
A Split-Window Corvette Made In 2013, How Is That Possible?
People drop large fortunes on 1963 Chevrolet Corvettes, especially if they’re a coupe with that iconic split rear window. The design was discontinued after that first year of C3 Corvette production, GM not realizing at the time it had created a hot collectible car for later. That design has been so beloved that people have recreated it with modern Corvettes like this one.
Turn Heads In This Like-New 1978 Cadillac Deville Hearse
In most conversations, this 1978 Cadillac Deville Hearse might be relegated to jokes of Halloween pranks or Cannonball Run antics, but upon closer inspection, this is a cool classic that could be the quirky cornerstone for any serious collection. More than just hearse, this Cadillac is a true survivor with very low mileage and showing in surprisingly good condition.
Rack Up Miles In This Rare 25th Anniversary 1994 Pontiac Trans Am
We see a lot of classic cars that have either been locked away with no miles or, on the flip side of that coin, have been abused and survive in rough condition. This 1994 Pontiac Trans Am is an example of a collectible car that has been enjoyed over the years but also well cared for. Sure, the odometer is creeping up on 100,000 miles, but you wouldn't be able to tell that by the overall condition of this anniversary edition Trans Am.
1970 Mercury Cougar Boss Eliminator Is One Rare Cat
Some people aren’t even aware that for a time Mercury was able to use the Boss 302 V8 from the Ford Mustang in its pony car, the Cougar. A mere 469 of these were made and boy are they special. Potent performance and exclusive treatments make this muscle car one you keep closely guarded in your garage, taking it to weekend cruises and shows to watch onlookers gawk.
Upstage The Rest In A Stunning 1966 Shelby GT350 Tribute
One of the most iconic cars in racing history would be the vintage Shelby GT350 Ford Mustang. A real Shelby GT350 will cost anybody a large chunk of change, but a stunning 1966 Shelby GT350 Tribute car would demand attention no matter where it goes for a fraction of the price. Guaranteed to make the perfect addition to any car enthusiast's stable is this exceptional Shelby GT350 tribute that is scheduled to cross the auction block during the Carlisle Fall Auction held on October 1st - 2nd, 2020 in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Don't worry if you can't make the live auction because bidding is also available online!
Black-And-Red 2006 Pontiac GTO Is A Rare Build
Over the course of its three-year lifespan (2004-06), production of the Australian-made Pontiac GTO was capped at just over 40,000 units, so that means just about every build combination is considered rare today. In its final year of production, the 2006 Pontiac GTO was available in seven exterior colors and three interior colors, and just 142 examples were equipped like this one that will be up for grabs through Raleigh Classic Auctions.
1965 Bill Thomas Cheetah Is A Recreation Of The Cobra Slayer
Bill Thomas had a vision of using Corvette components to build a car which would take down Carroll Shelby’s mighty Cobra. Also born out of the Southern California car culture of the 60s, the Cheetah obviously never rose to the same prominence, but that’s not to say it wasn’t a cool car. Now there’s a 1965 Bill Thomas Cheetah replica, a one-of-a-kind car, which is being offered for sale through Crown Concepts. This is definitely a unique chance to grab such a wonderful toy.
1991 Dodge Stealth RT Turbo Brings Import Twin-Turbo Fun
f most people were asked to name off notable Japanese cars from the 1990s, the Dodge Stealth would likely be completely skipped over. That’s in part because so many people see Dodge and assume it’s American, and also that they don’t realize the car was a reskinned Mitsubishi 3000GT. This 1991 Dodge Stealth RT Turbo is a twin-turbo, all-wheel-drive car from back before that combination was really popular. It’s being auctioned off through Raleigh Classic Car Auctions this Saturday.
Dare To Drive This GM Masterpiece: 2015 Camaro Z/28
When GM released the Z/28 for the fifth-generation Camaro, they were not fooling around! This car was tuned by Camaro engineers to be the ultimate track car god. With no sixth-generation option yet, and strong skepticism that there will even be a sixth-generation Z/28, this example is extremely rare. With low mileage and a clean appearance, this future collectible 2015 Camaro Z/28 is not going to stay on the market for long!
