Such was the demand for vehicles in the immediate aftermath of World War II that the 1946 Chryslers — like most other American makes — reappeared looking much the same as they had in 1942.

This fully restored King Midget Model 3 features a non-standard Briggs & Stratton V-twin engine with an automatic transmission. From the Tammy Allen Collection.
In 1950, Earl Muntz bought Indy car builder Frank Kurtis’s design and all the tooling for a 2-seat sports car and renamed it the Muntz Road Jet.
Muntz stretched the Kurtis “sports car” 13 inches to add room for a back seat. The styling was simple but streamlined. With an unerring eye for exposure, he made sure the Muntz Jets were visible, choosing bright paint hues and flashy Read More
This 1932 Lincoln KB Judkins coupe has benefited from a 15-year restoration completed in 2009. Authenticity was emphasized, and a recent inspection by a noted marque expert confirmed its correctness.
This car wears a custom body by Judkins — a firm that was founded in 1857 as a small carriage builder. Judkins furnished custom bodies for numerous car builders of distinction, but Lincoln was their primary client. Between 1921 and 1939, Judkins produced 5,904 bodies with 2,212 being offered on Read More
This Stanley Model E2, one of six models of the Stanley steam car available in the 1909 catalog, is powered by a 10-horsepower twin-piston engine — a marvel of simplicity that employed only 13 moving parts.
Once the big front-mounted boiler had been filled with water, fired, and tended by the owner’s careful hands, the Model E2 could hum along and climb steep grades with ease. It was a fun car, combining the eerie silence of steam with the peppy 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.
