Gas Monkey Galaxie – Running 1967 Ford Galaxie 500 (really cheap!)

Ole Richard Rawlings is passing on a stalled restoration project that could be a great score for someone looking for a little muscle to add to their collection. Offered directly by Gas Monkey Garage on Craigslist in Dallas for just $3,950, this running and driving 1967 Ford Galaxie appears to be a screaming deal. At least on the surface. Sure, it ain't perfect, but pop the hood and you'll find a 289 V8 that's connected to a four speed manual transmission. Uh, hello! Time to burn some rubber! Right? Not quite. This car will need a thorough inspection and a solid once over before anyone tries tearing up the streets. Of course, that could just be liability speaking. Let's take a closer look. Ford Galaxie Exterior At first glance, this blue and white Blue Oval looks pretty tired...
Rare Air – 1925 Franklin barn find

Rare Air – 1925 Franklin barn find

Despite wearing a radiator like grille, this 1925 Franklin for sale in Huntsville, Alabama doesn't have a water-cooled system. Yep, it's fake. That's what makes Franklin automobiles especially unique. From the first Franklin car in 1902, until the last one rolled off the line in 1934, each had an air-cooled engine. However, in 1925, at the demand of dealers, Franklin made an effort to build cars with more traditional styling. The faux radiator being a key element. At $5,500 this Franklin project car on Craigslist would make a fantastic restoration project. It appears relatively complete and is fitted with a rare body style. Based on the two door design of the body, the Internet tells me this is either a Franklin Series 11a Coupe or a Model 9-B. Of course it could be something compl...

Rusty & Fast – 1951 Ford Hot Rod (Cheap!)

They say all the good deals are gone. Who are they, anyway? Who cares, because you just came across a wicked ratty runner just begging for burnouts, and it's very fairly priced. This 1951 Ford for sale is rusty, dirty and friggin' awesome. It's nice to find an old hot rod project car on Craigslist that isn't absurd in the dollars column. You can bring home this one for just $6,000 if you make the trek to Wichita Falls, Texas. At the time of writing, the ad is only six hours old. Grab your bank roll and hit the road already! Yee-Haw. This 1951 Ford Victoria is a two door coupe that someone built into a real head turner and then parked out in the field for awhile. At some point in time a 351 Windsor V8 got stuffed under the hood. The seller states it runs great and will smoke the tir...

JDM for Sale! – 1996 Daihatsu Midget II

Some of the hottest cars in the USA are ones built for the Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) at least 25 years ago. This Daihatsu Midget II may not be one of them, but it's still, ah -- cute. And it's affordable, like many other JDM cars on Craigslist and elsewhere. This little one seat pickup is listed near Bellingham, WA for just under $8,000. Sure, it's more akin to a go-kart than a truck, but it's a go-kart that does freeway speeds and can actually help you accomplish your weekend chores. While Supras, Skylines and the like are fueling the JDM craze, it's tiny Kei cars and trucks like this remind the US what practicality is (this, not a Ford Excursion). We will take a closer look a this fine piece of JDM sass, but first, let's figure unravel how it we got here. How do you Import J...
August 2, 1967 – 1970 Chevelle Clay Model documented (plus Chevelles for sale!)

August 2, 1967 – 1970 Chevelle Clay Model documented (plus Chevelles for sale!)

With the 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle being one of the most well-known and sought after muscle cars, it's funny to think about what could have been. These shots from Super Chevy magazine, the first dated August 2, 1967, apparently offer a glimpse into the alternate designs the mid-sized muscle car could have carried for the 1970 model year. Is it just me, or does that first shot look more like a Monte Carlo or another heavy Chevy? In any case, we ended up with the iconic Chevelle we know today. What details catch your eye? These shots offer additional insight into what the design team was thinking for 1970. The above photo shows the dual headlight design, while below we see a single headlight front end. While 1970 would feature four circular headlights, it'd be the final year of the...
What’s in the Barn? A 1959 Cadillac!

What’s in the Barn? A 1959 Cadillac!

The choice without a compromise! That's just one way Cadillac marketed its 1959 lineup. The ad guys sure had some fun that year coming up up with a whole list of sayings that radiated greatness. The canvas they described warranted the words though. Just look at those mountain peaks on this 1959 Cadillac for sale near Seattle. This four window Series 62 will set you back $9,000, which isn't terrible for a running '59er of any spec. It's certainly rough around the edges, and don't expect to cruise it home, but this seems to be a solid start for a Cadillac restoration project. The traditional "it's a barn find" shot. In 1959 the Cadillac Series 62 featured a fantastic design by Bill Mitchell. Besides the massive tail fins, the cars featured unique straight body rub moldings, runnin...

American Apocalypse – Mad Max 1972 AMC Javelin for Sale

By Cody Clark It seems every day is a new surprise at the gas pump, and those that give up and try to choose an electric car may be increasingly out of luck as supply chain challenges put pressure on the EV industry. This car will solve none of those problems, and in fact it will likely make your wallet hurt more at the pump. But you can look cool while doing it. This 1972 AMC Javelin for sale has been painstakingly transformed into a Mad Max set piece. Available on Craigslist in the rugged and barren islands near Coupeville, WA for an ambitious $13,000, this labor of love features custom (and working!) secondary gas tanks mounted in back, a matte black paint job, and a ton of movie details like a shotgun replica.  You’ll recall that the road warrior himself drove an Aussie ...

3 Funky and Cheap AMC Cars for Sale

By Cody Clark AMC made use of small budgets and design ingenuity to tackle segments of the domestic car market that the other big brands didn’t bother to touch. Perhaps AMC wasn’t long for this world, but they did manage to sell some real winners. These cars are not among them. But for a low you can drive a long-defunct piece of American before the brown or tan AMC for sale becomes a Mecum Auction piece. 1974 AMC Javelin for sale This 1974 AMC Javelin in New York shows off a few different shades of brown all over. The steering wheel looks like it could snap your wrist with sheer mass, and the woven seats are a little more foam than seat. But everything is there and even if this car doesn’t run, it looks like it could very soon.  Those weird round arches protruding from...

Insane Options – 1979 Chevy Malibu Classic 

By Cody Clark It seems everyone claims to have a rare car. When you get granular, down to the interior piping and the number of wheel weights and the casual Friday build date at the factory in Detroit, you can pretty much find a reason your car is one of one. But this 1979 Chevy Malibu Classic available for $6,900 on Facebook Marketplace, through sheer undesirability and weird options, may truly be one of one. Wearing a flawless mint green hue, this Malibu looks like a malaise survivor from the outside already. Starting in 1978, Chevy was desperate to downsize in any way possible, and this car lost nearly 1,000 pounds from its predecessor. They were so bad the Iraqi government didn’t even want them. Most often paired with an anemic V6, most fourth-gen Chevy Malibus have been...
