23K-Mile One Family 1977 Plymouth Volare Wagon

Low Mileage Survivor! 1980 AMC Pacer Wagon

Before we launch into a review of AMC’s Pacer, let’s establish a modicum of credibility for a car that doesn’t always get the respect it deserves. First, Brigitte Bardot owned a Pacer, a wagon version complete with faux wood… more»

Project Truck: 1979 Dodge Lil’ Red Express

If an old muscle truck is what you seek, you could do far worse than a classic Dodge Lil’ Red Express pickup. To me, this was one of the coolest marketing exercises ever attempted by a major manufacturer, with… more»

1978 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme with 9k Genuine Miles!

Every classic car has a backstory, and some are more fascinating than others. The seller provides little information regarding the history of this 1978 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, so we are in the dark about how a car with forty-five… more»

BF Auction: 1967 Dodge Coronet R/T

Carport Find! 1969 Ford Mustang Grande

There is absolutely no shortage of 1969 Ford Mustangs here on BF but not many are the Grande version – a sort of luxury notchback edition, first offered in ’69. Nope, it’s the fastbacks (SportsRoof), often in Mach I… more»

75k Original Miles: 1990 Cadillac Allanté

Releasing an entirely new model is a practice that automotive manufacturers avoid where possible. It is a high-risk venture, and carrying over as many components as possible from other offerings within the product range reduces the risk of sales… more»

Last Year: 1975 International Travelette 200

It’s always a gamble to list anything as the first, biggest, smallest, oldest, etc. That being said, many sources list the International Travelette as the first factory crew cab pickup. Can you think of an earlier example than the… more»

California Wagon: 1978 Mercury Marquis 400 V8

“Woodgrain, or not woodgrain, that is the question”, to paraphrase Bill Shakespeare, who I’m just assuming would have been a big fan of full-sized Mercury station wagons. The seller has beautifully presented this 1978 Mercury Marquis Wagon here on… more»

BF Auction: 1968 Chevrolet Impala Convertible

Well, here’s one that I know a little bit about, having owned a similar car for many years, it’s a 1968 Chevrolet Impala convertible, built in the days when full-sized cars ruled and top-downing it was still popular. The… more»

BF Auction: 1958 Lincoln Continental Mark III

Life in the fast lane isn’t always what an enthusiast seeks when searching for a classic car to park in their garage. Isolating themselves in a vehicle offering a luxurious motoring experience can prove irresistible, which is the opportunity… more»

Motor-Swapped! 1947 Lincoln Club Coupe

Lincoln brochures claimed “Nothing could be finer…” than its lineup for ’47, and this 1947 Lincoln Club Coupe in Astoria, New York would have set you apart from your plebian neighbors, especially when you popped the hood to show… more»

Triple Black Beauty: 1970 Cadillac Eldorado

By the time the seventies decade rolled around, the Eldorado was already well into and nearing the end of its eighth generation of production, with the 1970 model featuring Cadillac’s new 500 cubic-inch V8 under the hood for the… more»

Shed Find: 1926 Ford Model T Coupe

If we were in Hollywood – instead of perusing the pages of Barn Finds – the Model T would be an über-celebrity. It sold more than 15 million copies, it was reliable enough to put everyman on wheels, it… more»

One Family Owned: 1977 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442

This 1977 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 is not a genuine barn find but a classic worthy of close inspection. It is an original and unmolested survivor. That is not particularly rare, but it features some desirable options and has been… more»
