1956 Chevrolet 210 H Drag Car

1956 Chevrolet 210 H Drag Car

Aman named Jim Lamatrice purchased this 1956 Chevrolet 210 sedan brand new and would own it for the next 45 years.

The best option that year was the Corvette-derived 265-ci, 225-hp Power Pak engine with dual-WCFB Carter 4-barrels, a Duntov-type 30/30 camshaft and factory dual exhaust.

Jim’s classic “Shoebox Chevy” also ended up with the 3-speed overdrive manual transmission and steep 4.57:1 Positraction rear gearing.

Many original Power Pak race cars were radically changed over the years. It is rare Read More

1957 DeSoto Adventurer convertible

1957 DeSoto Adventurer convertible

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

1972 Chevrolet Chevelle Heavy Chevy

1972 Chevrolet Chevelle Heavy Chevy
  • LS3 402-ci, 300-hp V8
  • Documented one-owner car, with original title and Protect-O-Plate
  • Factory air conditioning

This rare special-order Heavy Chevy was marketed as a lighter version of the SS and advertised much lower stated horsepower as an insurance beater. Heavy Chevys were factory coded as a base Chevelle and theoretically avoided the SS title, which triggered staggering double-digit insurance premium increases in the early ‘70s.

The factory RPO code YF3 made this a rare Heavy Chevy, a sub-model Read More

2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302
  • 5.0-L DOHC 32-valve V8
  • 6-speed manual transmission
  • 945 miles from new

There was no mistaking the Boss 302 for other run-of-the-mill Mustangs. Like the original, its unique exterior décor set these cars apart, as if the running gear didn’t do that. Produced for just two years, a total of 3,249 Boss 302 Mustangs were built for 2012. This example, which has barely had break-in miles put on the clock, is finished in black with the distinctive red markings.

1952 FWD F-Series Fire Truck

1952 FWD F-Series Fire Truck

by B. Mitchell Carlson and Stuart Lenzke

This FWD Pumper, Engine 2632, was in service as a front-line pumper until 2004, when it was replaced by a new pumper engine at the Baker Rural Fire Protection District in Baker City, OR. Department personnel bought the retired engine from the department. The firefighters believe the old engine and its rich service history deserved far more than to fall into a state of abandonment.

Engine 2632 has been used for parades and Read More

1961 AMC Metropolitan Convertible

1961 AMC Metropolitan Convertible

At a time in automotive history when American manufacturers were consistently arguing that “bigger is better,” Nash dared to be different. After creating a well-received concept car called the NXI, Nash believed that a small, efficient car could be successful amongst the sea of large cars being offered by the Big Three: Ford, GM and Chrysler.

In 1953 Nash put the redeveloped NXI into production, and starting in 1954, the car would be marketed as the Metropolitan. It would be Read More
