Heating up on the Lot!

Summer may be wrapping up, but our lot is still hot! With several beauties sold this past month and some exciting new additions coming, here is our August roundup!

We let our stunning 1954 Ford Crestline Skyliner go to a happy new owner last month! This beautiful car has a light blue paint job with a white accent on top, paired with a blue and white leatherette interior. This 2-door hardtop body style also has an integrated acrylic glass panel over the front seating area. The glass has a blue-green tint, creating a soft diffused light that filters out 60% of the sun rays! 13,144 of these cars were sold in one year of production! This particular one is completely restored and includes a new and improved engine. Although they initially were overwhelmingly popular, today they are relatively rare and sought after in the car collector market. We were sad to see it go, but happy to have made someone’s collection even better!

Another lovely car we sold last month was a 1923 Nash Model 691 5-Passenger Touring Car. Not only is this Nash a gorgeous deep green, it benefited from a frame-off restoration including a new top and side curtains. Additionally, it was equipped with an OHV 6-cylinder engine and was recently serviced and ready to drive! Adding to its original charm, this Nash is complete with a period accessory spotlight with review mirror attached and mounted to the left windshield frame. The front bumper also is an authentic accessory! Nine decades old, this beauty runs like new and was more than ready to be driven off with its new owner!

New on the Vintage Motor Cars site for the month of August is our 1923 Ford Model T Speedster. For a great deal of just $24,900, you can take home this timeless vehicle. Its cream exterior and contrasting black leather interior create a classic look. Complete with brass headlamps, a dropped front axle, Rocky Mountain brakes, a modern coil, distributor and an electric starter have all been added. What more could you ask for? Adding a finishing touch to this Ford is a monocle windshield! You’d be crazy NOT to add it to your collection!

You think you’ve seen a true head-turner? Not until you’ve seen our 1962 Ford Thunderbird Sports Roadster new on our site this month! Gorgeous with ragoon red on the outside and beige vinyl adorning the inside, a fiberglass tonneau cover fits over the rear seat of the four-seater convertible to give it the appearance of a two-seater with a very long rear deck. The cover was designed so as to not interfere with the convertible top’s operation – smart thinking! Also, for your convenience, this Ford has a swing away steering wheel – to allow the driver to enter and exit the car with ease; how awesome is that? Rust free with 30,714 miles prove its virtually flawless and ready for a ride with its new owner!

If you’ve been waiting to find the perfect vehicle to jump on to add to your collection, wait no longer! Soon we will have available for you a 1966 Jaguar XKE. Its combination of beauty, high performance, and competitive pricing crowned this model an icon of 1960’s vehicle manufacturing. This sleek, red road monster is sure to break necks as your fly by! Be sure to check it out as soon as it’s on the site!
