The name comes from "Mini"the car with which the Moke shares many partsand "Moke", which is an archaic dialect term for donkey. The Moke has been marketed under various names including Austin Mini Moke, Morris Mini Moke and Leyland Moke. The initial design was a prototype for a light military vehicle in the style of the American Jeep, but its small wheels and low ground clearance made it impractical as an off-road vehicle. The Moke would go on to attract attention as a cult vehicle as a result of the unprecedented success of the Mini and through exposure in the popular television series: The Prisoner. Of the 14,500 Mokes sold, only about a tenth of them stayed in Britain, yet strong demand remained overseas. It was subsequently offered in a civilian version as a low-cost, easily maintained utility vehicle. The Moke finally achieved success as a beach buggy
Mercedes Benz 1971 280SL ?Pagoda? Offered for sale- a stunning, clean, mechanically sound, matching numbers and very rare -only 520 exported to the US -1971 Mercedes Benz 280SL -?Pagoda?. In 1963 Mercedes introduced the W113 chassis on which an all-new SL was built. The new SL line was a complete departure from the 190SL (W121) and a different car compared to the 300SL (W198). The body was designed by Paul Braq and was offered with both a soft top and, as an option, a removable hard top. The design of the hardtop incorporates a concave roof shape and when viewed from the front resembles a Japanese Pagoda. Thus Pagoda became the adopted name for the series of three generations ? 230SL, 250SL and 280 SL. Production on the W113 ended in the spring of 1971, eight years after its introduction, with the new R107 chassis. Production of the 280SL started in 1967. A total of 23,885 cars were produced during 1967-1971 and 12,927 were destined for the US. In 1971, according to MB records, only 830 of the 280SL were built before switching over to the R107 chassis- making this a rare car. Information obtained from www.mercedes-benz.com/classic-center. In 1968 the 280SL got an engine upgrade to a bored/stroked 2.8 liter version of the Bosh-injected inline six. The majority of production was with the four- speed automatic transmission. In the time of the W113 production, Mercedes did not offer factory installed air-conditioning in Germany. But there was demand for it in the US and it became a dealer installed option. For the 280SL the approved a/c was a unit mounted under the dashboard with the brand name of ?FrigiKing?. It was made in the US by Artic Air. This 1971 280SL is a one family owner car; it comes with two tops (soft and hard) and a stand for the hard top. It was restored in 1997. The body was repainted to the Mercedes Dark Olive Green body color. The black soft top and black interior were also restored as was the green hard top. Included are the car /roof covers and stand. The car is equipped with an automatic transmission, power steering, six cylin

1969 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe You learn in art class that the color black is the absence of light or color. In the case of this 1969 Chevrolet Corvette, Black IS the color! (900) Tuxedo Black outside and (ZQ4) black vinyl inside, a color combination that had less than 1000 produced the year 1969. This is 4 wheels of intimidation and an iconic classic sports car. Back in 1969, I was a child living on the east side of Detroit a few blocks from the Detroit River. I wasn't afraid of the sound of the race boats racing around Belle Isle, nor was I afraid of the firework display on the 4th of July at Cobo Hall. But I was definitely fearful of the sound of the rumble of the muscle cars coming down the street. It was a game my sister and I used to play. We'd hear that rumble from a few blocks away, freeze in our tracks,and as this 4 wheeled monster got close, we'd race to the back of the house! (a former bootleggers house I might add) We would hide, because if that car saw you( it had eyes), you would turn to stone or some other imaginary fearful thing we've dreamed up. I can honestly say I never saw the muscle cars coming in front of the house, because I was hiding in the back of the house from them. So how cool is it now that I get to represent this wonderful pristine Corvette.This 1969 Corvette Stingray Coupe is not a big block. Its a healthy 350cu and 300hp L48 V8 Technical Stuff- HP@ RPM 300 @ 4800, Torque @ RPM380 @ 3200, Compression Ratio 10.25:1,Bore & Stroke 4.00 x 3.48, Cylinder Block-Cast Iron,Main Bearings 5 Valve Lifters-Hydraulic Carburetion-4bbl RochesterIntake Manifold-Cast Alloy IronOil Capacity- 5qts w/filter,Exhaust-Dual 2.0". Options - Air Conditioning was a $428 option. This was upgraded to 134A -But it is not working. Turbo Hydra-Matic Automatic Transmission and Power Steering are options. Sale also includes 4 still in the wrapper (except one serving as the spare) wheels and tires. The Independent rear suspension, different from a lot of muscle cars of the day and Wishbone suspension is all very clean in this 69. There is no rust to be seen on this car. The 4-wheel disc brakes on it are a large 10 inch rotors. My husband had a 1971 Corvette convertible, a very similar car to this one. And as is in this car, the dual exhaust goes right through the crossmember frame. Whether you're a passenger or the driver you get a lot of heat off of that. The small block is less heat, but he also liked the small block for its weight distribution between the front and the rear. When a car is well-balanced such as this car was back in 1969(or in 1971 in my husband's case) it just makes it a much more fun to drive. The car is much more manageable and much better handling. Plus, it is much easier to work on than the big-block and not as crammed in the engine compartment. A National Corvette Restoration Society (NCRS) judge told the current owner-"Buy this car" upon looking at it. The current owner has owned it for 14 years . It was restored prior to his ownership in North Carolina. He has been meticulous on maintenance and only a job transfer makes this car available. Outside of the age, there are only a couple things . The radio antennae is in the trunk and the brand new washer bag needs to be installed.It has an aftermarket Offenhauser performance intake manifold for extra power. There is a ding in the front hood where some one forgot to screw in the wing nut on the carburetor and shut the hood on it. It appears all the vacuum operated stuff works- turn signals- wiper door opens. Corvette took vacuum operation off the carburetor to operate the vents for heat, and headlights and the washer wiper door. 1969 was the only year that the rear window comes out. Remove the T-tops and you practically have a convertible! We welcome trades and can arrange financing. This magnificient car can be viewed by appointment.

1969 Jaguar E-Type Series II OTS Roadster In reading the large binder with all the original paperwork on this stunning E-Type Series II Jaguar, I can't help but be filled with emotion when I read the note dated May 11th, 1988. I, John J. DiNenna, relinquish the ownership to Fred Wright for this 1969 XKE Jaguar. There's no price on it....there's no amount of money of what it was sold for or how long it took for them to come to an agreement on this vehicle (6 months)! Now years later- it's been weeks and the seller and I have gone back and forth with what to sell this most beautiful car I've ever seen! How do you put a price on a car where with those words- I relinquish my car, as if to give up your soul. No wonder the owner and I have struggled with a price, because, really, this car is priceless! A CAR IS ONLY ORIGINAL ONCE the owner told me of this example of one of the most seductively beautiful cars ever built. Pale Primrose with a black leather interior and black convertible top( black cover)1969 Jaguar E Type Series II LHD 2 seater. This E-Type Jaguar OTS is a time capsule/survivor. The body is straight and no evidence of rust having been inside a garage all its life. The chrome is overall in good condition. Panel fit is very good and chrome wire wheels with period correct narrow whitewall radials. The black interior is in very good condition. Minimal work in upkeep and repair on this car during 28 years of ownership by the current owner. Based on information that the original/previous owner provided- it is not evident that this car has had any major work done on it anywhere of any kind! The only body work is on the left rocker panel. It was re-sprayed in the battery area due to battery acid dripping down the rocker. Lead filled seam between rocker and rear wing/quarter panel are all part of standard 1960's production of these cars by Jaguar Motorcars. You would never see this in a fully restored or concourse car -sometimes over improved . In this case ,the factory did it all, because this car is the benchmark from which a car should be eva
Unfortunately, a deer encounter has caused the price decrease. Ran beautifully for the wedding. SOLD AS IS. Nostradamus said in 1548. "From Albion's shore shall come a marvelous conveyance, a carriage silincieux bearing the arms of Rolles De Roi." Albion (Ancient Greek) is the oldest known name of the island of Great Britain and from its shores come this beautiful Rolls Royce - hand built. The chrome Hood figurine-Spirit of Ecstasy- derived from the Grande Corniche, the touring road high above the Mediterranean between Nice and Monte Carlo leads this stunning chrome grille made entirely by hand and eye - no measuring instruments are used. Garnet Red with Cream Connolly Leather, this Silver Shadow's unibody construction is powered by an engine that is completely hand built even today. Only 77,850 miles are on the 6,750-cc, Bosch fuel-injected OHV V-8 172 hp. The self-leveling suspension was based on the Citroen hydraulic system and the Silver Shadow employed power disc brakes. Reminding me of the 1970 Chevelle SS 454 LS6 we also have for sale, the Shadow GM-sourced Turbohydramatic 400 Automatic Transmission gearbox, (except on pre-1970 RHD models), which used the same 4-speed automatic gearbox as the Silver Cloud (also sourced from General Motors). The Silver Shadow was produced between 1965 1977. Only 16,717 examples of the 1969 Silver Shadow were produced. Rolls Royce Silver Shadow- Silence is Golden. The transcript on the 1969 flyer from Rolls Royce says it all! A Rolls-Royce Never Becomes a Used Car. It becomes a Classic. In a Rolls-Royce you'll enjoy one of the great satisfactions left in a world of mediocrity and mass production. You'll be the owner of a rare automobile which ages like the great Bordeaux wines, becoming with proper care even more valuable than on the day you bought it. And as you glide through mundane traffic to your special destination, you will be discreetly but firmly stating your position in the world. Is a Rolls-Royce different or merely expensive? Cars perhaps do not have philosophies, but their manufacturers do. We welcome trades and can arrange financing.

1988 Rotus 8 Certificate of Origin states it is a Replica of a 1967 Lotus Super Seven America Model - The Buick V8 engine has seized , but it should be relativity easy to drop another V8 in it and have fun at say the Coatesville Grand Prix. The call came a few months ago and we met out in the middle lands of Delaware and sitting behind a simple ranch was the open shed with the back of peeking out. Coated with dust and spider webs, I immediately started looking for the engine numbers. My husband,new to my business but old to the car world, pointed out it was a GM Product with a Buick engine and the numbers were always int the same place,in front of the block under the carburetor on a flat plane written 3/1569885 and then upside down HI299179 . I should know all about the Offenhauser valve cover after having attended the Indy 500 last year and viewed the Offy engines at the Indy museum. This large V8 has 2 values per cylinder with the Highrise Intake manifold, Edelbrock Air cleaner and Carter AFB 4 barrell carburettor might yield about 215 hsp! But unfortunately, sitting for so long the engine is not running. The previous owner custom built this with Chris Custer of Frederick MD. Chris a Toyota Dealership Principal, built his idea of a perfected Lotus Super Seven out of spare Toyota parts. Letters from Chris Custer state this was the first retail V8 sold as most of the approximately 70 built were rotary engines?

1965 PORSCHE 356 1600C CABRIOLET w/HARDTOP I would like to claim credit for finding this rare Porsche- but in reality it found me. ?Oh Lord won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz, my friends all have Porsches, I must make amends? my band mate Michelle sang lustily at one of our gigs. It was surprising to the car- world when Janis Jopins' HISTORY OF THE WORLD 1964 356C Cab sold for $1.7 million this past December. But this is a 1965 356C with the original very rare removable hardtop and BLAPUNKT radio! 1965 was the last year Porsche made the 356 named either for its sequential design production number or named for the office in Gmund. But surprising having been introduced in 1948 this car would be the very first Porsche bearing the Porsche name body designed by Erwin Kommenda. Louise Piech-Dr. Ferdinan Porsche's daughter and Ferry Porsche were to carry the design ideas to their father at the Austrian prison where he landed near the end of WWII. The original body color is Light Ivory. The black leather seats are still in decent condition. Two soft tops- one original on frame and one newer black soft top cover in box . The hardtop is surprisingly in good condition. Engine is in the car, but needs reassembly. 36,113 miles is showing on odometer? (Boxes of parts are photograhed). This classic has roll down windows and who needs AC? Lots of rust and this car needs flooring, but there appears to be no rust through the rear tortion bar tubes! This is an incredible project car! Matching numbers verified by Porsche. VIN # 161610 Transmission #84868 Trans Gear # 124 741/2C Engine # P*716689 MADE IN GERMANY Certificate of Authenticity coming from Porsche . The crankshaft is standard and original -not reground. It has dual Zenith carburetors. There are several boxes of parts.

This beautiful "Fintail"(German Heckflosse)1965 Mercedes Benz 190c Sedan, has the original Bill of Sale- Dated November 20, 1964 and was sold to a Stanley Gzaplicki from Ivyland, Pennsylvania. The dealership was KEENAN MOTORS of Philadelphia PA. VIN #11001012095667. The Dark Blue ( Special- 332) Paint appears to be original with only minor rust. The Beige interior (2403) is MB Tex Leather (Full Fluted) with 99,323 miles on the odometer. The original engine, with matching numbers, still runs smoothly and recently went thru State inspection with clear title. The 190 c is a 4 cylinder engine with an overhead camshaft of 90 HP. . Fintail is a nickname given to this type of Mercedes, because of its two rear chrome highlighted fins. American cars in the early 60's were often designed with huge fins, much larger than the German Heckflosse! This is not an official name by Mercedes-Benz. Heckflosse German translation is Fintail, 'Heck' means 'tail' and 'flosse' means 'fin'. The chrome over the entire car is in excellent condition. The W110 was Mercedes Benz's entry level line of midsize autos in the mid-1960s and was introduced in April, 1961. The W110 were among the first series of Mercedes cars to be extensively crash tested for occupant safety. Which explains on the Bill of Sale the optional 2 Front Seat Belts! The 190c was Mercedes-Benz's line of less-expensive four-cylinder sedans. The options such as fixed-back seats and bakelite trim on the dashboard (as opposed to timber in the W111 models). This made them extremely popular with taxi drivers. Production of the 190Dc exceeded that of the petrol-engined 190c by nearly 100,000 units. Also listed is the Automatic Transmission, Front Bumper Guards, W/S W Tires, Power Brakes and Anti Freeze. The Price of the car in 1964 was $4,496.88. Today... only $10,000 more- not bad for inflation on a car that will outlive most of us. June 2016 this car was advertised for sale - Good condition. Drives/runs well and transmission shifts well.

1957 Porsche Speedster Replicar (1972 VW Beetle)My husband just doesn't get it! But then again, he claims he never bought his MGA or his Corvettes to attract the opposite sex. They were just cool cars! So He says. This is the coolest of the cool and coveted by the most discernible collector. In the 1970s Automobili Intermeccanica in Santa Ana, California was the largest manufacturer of Speedster Kits. In 1979, sold the Speedster project to Classic Motor Carriages in Miami, Florida. Thus CMC became the largest Speedster replica manufacturer, selling several hundred before coming to a close in 1994. This company used molds for the fiberglass body which is on a 1972 Beetle frame. The 1915cc engine with dual carbs in this Speedster Red with black interior, offers approximately 150hp- faster than the $450,000 original! The reliable and inexpensive VW Drivetrain has a 4-speed transmission with a heavy duty clutch and a larger oil cooler. Approximately 2000 miles are on this engine- not for certain since the odometer is not working. Thats ok .the fun factor still exist owned by the current owner since 1988 and serviced regularly. Service records, side curtains (one is cracked), extra hubcaps and tonneau cover included in the ENJOY THE RIDE price of $29,000. The original is now $300,000 to $500,000.
