The poor Chevrolet Corvair. Of all the classic cars ever produced we are hard pressed to find one that has received more abuse, much of it unjustified, than the Corvair.

The Pick of the Day is a red 1964 Corvair convertible for sale at a very affordable $9,995, which generally doesn’t get you much collector car these days. But Corvairs remain as entry-level classics, having never really outlived their early lambasting as “Unsafe at Any Speed.”

Rescuing a desirable classic car from long-term, often-neglectful storage is something akin to finding buried pirate treasure, or an old-masters painting in Aunt Tillie’s attic. They’re called “barn finds” whether they’ve been pulled out of a garage, a shipping crate or even a parking structure. In the case of the Pick of the Day, we could call it a “tin-shed find.”

Pick of the Day: 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Club Victoria

694883_20794046_1957_Ford_Fairlane+500

One: I learned to drive on a red-and-white four-door 1957 Ford sedan with a V8 engine and three on the tree.

Two: At some point in my childhood, I remember my grandfather owning a black-and-yellow ’57 Ford hardtop.

Three: I’m a sucker for 1950s cars with fender skirts.

Therefour (intentional misspelling), my Pick of the Day is this 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Club Victoria, a two-door hardtop that the private owner says has been driven fewer than 2,000 miles since the car underwent a complete restoration about a decade ago. Continue reading

In recognition of Hagerty’s report that vintage pickup trucks represent the fastest-growing part of the collector-car market, the Pick of the Day is a creatively customized 1940 Ford half-ton pickup with vintage flair.

Because really, when was the last time you saw a pickup truck with fender skirts? This might have been a hep-cat styling trend back in the day, but nowadays, it looks strikingly unusual. Though in context, quite cool. It certainly makes this Ford stand out from the rest. Continue reading

Something that is heard quite a lot lately in the classic car community is that all the good deals are gone. Many of us fondly remember when you could buy an early Porsche 911 for $10,000 and an E-type Jaguar for as little as $7,500.

Sadly, the days are over for buying those icons of the 1960s for that little money. It does not matter if there is ever a market correction, the cheap old days for those cars and others of that era are over. Continue reading

Pick of the Day: 1992 Mustang GT

If you have a need for speed, like to hoon, shred tires and rip down the drag strip in seconds, then this bright Victory Red 1992 Ford Mustang GT is the perfect track monster for you. The Fox body mustangs have been growing in popularity, particularly with millennials on the drag strip, due to their light weight and ability to contain massive motors. This particular Mustang has been purpose-built to haul ass with no expense spared. Continue reading

Pick of the Day: 1958 Lincoln Continental convertible

The over-the-top styling of the ’58 Continental doomed it to future obscurity
The over-the-top styling of the ’58 Continental doomed it to future obscurity

It’s tough being the middle child, especially when your older and younger siblings have made major successes of themselves. So it goes for the 1958-1960 Lincoln Continental, whose baroque styling makes it much less memorable than the classic and coveted 1956-57 Continental Mark II or the Mad Men cool squared-rigged Continental that arrived in 1961.

But there are those among us, myself included, who find a certain funky appeal in the over-the-top design of these Lincolns, which were known as the Continental Mark III, Mark IV and Mark V, designating each of their three years of production. (Even Ford seemed to ignore the existence of these cars, coming back in the late 1970s with a new lineup of Continentals repeating the names Mark III, IV and V.) Continue reading

‘The wife says… Must sell,” according to the private party offering this 1963 Mercury Comet convertible for sale.

“This vehicle is in very good condition considering it being almost all original,” he continues in his classified advertisement on ClassicCars.com.

“Seat covers are new, have been changed, and little else. You can drive the car every day if you desire. It has the 260 V8 and runs excellent. The paint is original and shows worn spots but no major scratches or dents. Just had it cut and buffed and it looks great.” Continue reading

With the Fourth of July coming up tomorrow in our politically divided nation, let us come together and agree (for once) that there is nothing more all-American than a big-block muscle car from the 1960s.

The Pick of the Day is a bright-red 1967 Dodge Charger powered by a 440 cid V8, which should get the job done. The Lithia Springs, Georgia, classic car dealer notes that these big ground pounders do not get the attention they deserve compared with the later Chargers that regularly go into six figures at auction.
