Springing Forward!

It was a busy winter at Vintage Motor Cars, but we’re ready for spring and the nice weather that comes with it! Soon, it will be time to take your vintage car out of storage and show it off or drive around in your convertible with the top down.

We recently sold some really interesting cars, including a replica 1886 Benz Patent Motorwagen. This car has incredible and accurate detail to it. One of our favorite things about this Benz is its beautifully finished woodwork, polished brass, and perfect paintwork. This piece truly is a work of art! The good news is if you're interested in purchasing a Benz like this we have coming soon another one with no miles!

Our 1942 Packard Super Eight 160 Convertible Coupe, Model 2023, is another car sold recently. This car featured a shiny, deep red paint job and an accurate, beautifully finished interior. By 1942, the 160 adopted Clipper styling for its 127-inch wheelbase cars in both the club sedan and touring sedan body styles. In fact, the convertible coupe remained the only traditionally styled Packard for that chassis, and given the end of production brought about by America’s involvement in World War II, remains a very desirable collector car.
We also sold our 1949 Plymouth Special Deluxe Convertible. The car was restored about a decade ago and features gorgeous red leather in the interior. The Special Deluxe came loaded with features, including an AM radio and heater in a time before such things were standard. The car also featured a fully functional power convertible top. The car handled well and was a great deal!

Spring doesn’t bring just great weather, but new cars here at Vintage Motor Cars, too! We have two great new cars coming soon! They are a 1964 Rolls-Royce Phantom V Limo (live now on the site), and a 1966 Jaguar E-Type Roadster! Be sure to check our website for updates!
