Almost 100,000 Chargers were sold in 1968, with 17,584 of them outfitted with the Road/Track package. Of those, only 475 were produced with the optional 426 Street Hemi, including the example offered here. Making this car even more desirable is its rare color combination of dark blue over an Electric Blue interior.
Mopar restoration expert Julius Steuer purchased the car and, in 2009, restored it at his shop in Los Angeles. David Mikkelson acquired it shortly after the restoration was Read More
All Adventurers built between 1956 and 1958 were limited in production, but the 1957 model was especially so, having been introduced later than the rest of that year’s DeSoto line. There was no mention of the model in the catalog and no Adventurer brochure — just an insert for the owner’s manual, welcoming owners to “the elite Adventurer family.” Elite, indeed; in 1957, only 300 convertibles were made.
The car offered here is even rarer in being equipped with factory Read More

Cadillac redesigned its models in 1965 and continued a slow evolution of the new styling in 1967 with reworked contours, which gave the cars an appearance of greater length and muscularity. Underneath, the valve train and engine fan were refined for smoother operation, and a new carburetor was fitted. Body mounts were tuned, with the result being a car that was everything that a Cadillac Read More
Eager to shed its stodgy reputation during the 1960s, American Motors launched a daring assault on the lucrative youth market with a series of prototypes. Developed at AMC’s advanced styling studios in October 1965, the first AMX prototype — short for American Motors experimental — was developed under Charles Mashigan, a leading contributor to Ford’s original Thunderbird and Chrysler’s Turbine.
AMC management was suitably encouraged to approve further development, enlisting outside contractors Smith Inland of Ionia, MI, to build a Read More

This is a rare find: a 1974 AMC that has only 406 original miles driven by its single documented owner. Painted in Big Bad Blue with a white vinyl top, it is a great color scheme in relation to its white interior.
The AMC was not all show; it came packed with a 360-ci V8 engine that pumped out 245 horsepower. It is meshed with an automatic transmission. Power brakes and steering make for safe and smooth operation. Factory options Read More
