Black, low gear, 4-speed, no heater, dog dish hub caps, big engine. Nothing beats a plain Jane car. This 1960 Chevy is a great example of “built to run”. Check it out, Lot 982.

I never understood why more people didn’t do Dodge Viper engine swaps over the years? I remember seeing a Challenger at Carlisle years ago that had one and thought that was just the coolest thing. Apparently the builder of Lot 1016 agree’s with me!

I know what your thinking, Studebaker? But look at Lot 1027, check out the McCulloch supercharger hanging from the top of the engine.

Something about this ‘Cuda just grabs my eye. Its traditional Mopar. Over the top color, billboards, shaker hood, got to love it! Check it out, Lot 1071.

 

Low miles, four speed, hold on to your hat when this one goes across the block, it’s gonna ring the bell. Lot 1133.

Old police cars are always cool. I’m not sure the over all collectability of an 86 Dodge Diplomat, but it’s cool to see one in original form non the less! Lot J25

 

I’ve always loved the Aero Coupe Monte Carlo’s and I believe these will be one of the strongest collectibles of the 80’s in time. Even with a few miles, this car is in very good shape! Lot J76

 

I’ve always loved the styling of the Studebaker Hawk line. Very underrated car in my opinion. J167

 

Stay tuned, many more cars to come over the next week from Mecum Kissimmee!

Old Ford Phaeton’s are super cool and super rare. It was impossible to not add this one to the list when i saw it!

1952 CHEVROLET CUSTOM 2 DOOR HARDTOP: LOT 1150.0

Anything with the Shelby name gets my attention! I’ve always thought these were cool little cars!

Old speed shop trucks are cool. Being that this one is a Studebaker makes it even cooler! Even comes with a display motor in the back!

The color brought my attention to this one, never mind big block, four speed, etc. etc.!

It’s a foxbody, so you know its on my list!

 

1969 CHEVROLET PICK UP 2500 SERIES LOT 3341.0
