We've had a great summer and are looking forward to what fall will be bringing on our lot. With the holidays right around the corner, we have a few great ideas of what you can get your loved one who is a car enthusiast (check out our coming soon cars at the bottom of this blog!) Want to know what's sold? We had a lot of movement on the lot this past August, check out these recent beauties who have found new homes!
August was an awesome month for us at Vintage Motor Cars, as we said goodbye to several beautiful vehicles. Such as our 1940 Packard Super Eight 160 Convertible Coupe, Model 1803! It had an immaculate red paint job and tan leather on the interior – a truly classic look. Kept in California all its life, this Packard was entirely rust-free with a cool running engine that can comfortable cruise at 65 mph. It also had received a myriad of updates including: a brand new top and top boot, new trunk carpet, rebuilt starter, vacuum advance, generator and distributor, new brakes and wheel cylinders, new trim rings and hubcaps, newer wiring harness, new battery and that’s just the beginning! This was a rare find and its new owner drove happily off in their new Super Eight!
We also said farewell to a gorgeous 1930 Chrysler Model 77 4-Door Sedan this August! This is truly what you think of when you imagine a clean, sleek classic vehicle. This particular one benefitted from a recent frame off restoration and the interior has been expertly kept. The interior hardware has also been kept in excellent shape. The chrome was replated with the exception of the spotlight, which kept its original chrome. Privacy window shades adorn the two rear windows behind the back doors as well as the rear window. With all gauges working and clear, this car made for the perfect family car, show car, or touring car. What more could you want? No wonder it was swept off our inventory!
Our 1984 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur “Lace Peacock” was arguably one of our most unique cars we had in our inventory. In August, a lucky owner drove off in this head-turner. The exterior color is named “lace peacock” and the inside was dressed in cream leather with red piping! This is not a car you see every day, and we are excited that someone was able to claim this as their own. Basically brand new, this Rolls had only 10,110 original miles when driven off our lot. Hand painted by the Bhagwan’s special artists, it has been meticulously maintained in excellent original condition. This car has a long history and story behind it that many cars don’t come with! We are sad to see this rare beauty go, but we know it has made our customer very happy!
NEW ON SITE!:
New on our site for the month of September we have some absolutely gorgeous vehicles you’d be crazy not to check out! Our 1921 Stutz Series K 6-7 Passenger Tourer is now up on the site. A unique gray exterior paint pairs well with its red leather interior. Fun fact about this car is that only 35,000 of the first generation Stutz motor cars were produced in the 20 year history of the company. Meaning, this car is now considered a “full classic” by the Classic Car Club of America. In fact, this is the only 1921 Stutz 6-7 Tourer still existing today! This Stutz starts easily and has been fitted with an electric fuel pump. It cruises effortlessly down the road and is ready for any show or tour.
Another stunning find on our site this month is our 1961 Oldsmobile Super Eighty-Eight Convertible. This white beast is adorned in maroon vinyl interior which creates a beautiful contrast. Only 2,624 Super Eighty-Eight Convertibles were built in 1961, making this an extremely rare find – especially in such immaculate condition! Showing barely 38,000 original miles, this Olds is basically like new. A whisper-quiet engine and smooth shifting makes for an unforgettable ride. We are looking forward to handing the keys over to whoever the lucky new owner may be!
Talk about a car straight out of the high class 1920’s! Our 1921 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Cabriolet is sure to be swiped out of our inventory in no time! Rolls is known for its expertise in luxury vehicles – even in the 1920’s. Light blue and cream paint cover the outside while red leather adds a touch of elegance to the interior. This car has been restored in its lifetime and painted and lined by hand. The rebuild was completed in April of 1962, while the engine received an overhaul in 1992 and the convertible top was renewed in 1998. This car is in perfect condition and is the result of many years of love. The only reason its current owner has decided to part ways with it after 55 years of ownership, is that its current home of Switzerland, the car is not allowed to exceed their speed limit laws, but it could easily exceed them. Switzerland just isn’t doing this beauty justice and its owner has high hopes that elsewhere it could be driven like it’s really meant to be!
What can you expect to see on our site in the coming month? We have a sleek 1914 Abbott-Detroit. This gorgeous vehicle is black on black and is sure to break necks as it slides onto our site and into your garage!
Another great car we can’t wait to have up on our site soon is a 1973 Volvo. The orange exterior means business and is made for a bold driver! If you want a car that blends in, this isn’t the car for you. Kept in near perfect condition, this Volvo is the perfect addition to any car collection!
