1955 Ford F-100 Previously Owned by Patrick Swayze Is up for Sale – Ciprian Florea @autoevolution

Advertisements

Second-generation Ford F-Series pickup trucks aren’t the most desirable vehicles from the 1950s, but they sure are pretty. At least in my book, because I love the bulged hood and wide fender design from the era. Well, if you’re in the market for one of these mid-1950s haulers, here’s your chance to own a 1955 F-100 previously owned by Patrick Swayze.

The truck was recently listed by Patrick’s wife, Lisa Niemi, on eBay, where it’s being auctioned off at no reserve. The F-100 is located at the Swayze Ranch in Sylmar, California, where Patrick and Lisa found it when they bought the property back in 1986.

“Patrick and I inherited this super-cool pickup when we bought our horse ranch in LA 35 yrs ago. We always intended to restore it but never got around to it. However, it did serve as an awesome backdrop in many photo sessions,” the ad reads, suggesting that the truck has been sitting ever since the couple purchased the ranch.

Needless to say, the F-100 is a proper yard find, showing a lot of surface rust and needing a great deal of TLC before it can hit the road again. But it appears to be complete inside and out and still has the original 239-cubic-inch (3.9-liter) V8 engine under the hood.

1990 Ford Thunderbird Super Coupe With 65K Miles For Sale In Michigan – Brett Hatfield @FordAuthority

Advertisements

Bowing for the 1955 model year, the Ford Thunderbird was the personal luxury car answer to the Chevrolet Corvette. The Thunderbird, or T-Bird, was produced continuously from 1955 through the 1997 model year, and again from 2002 to 2005, and through 11 different generations.

Luxury and performance were not mutually exclusive in the Ford Thunderbird. The 1957 Thunderbird’s 312 cubic-inch Y-Block V8 could be optioned with twin four-barrel carbs or a McCullough supercharger. The second generation T-Bird would offer a 430 cube, 350 horsepower V8 for the now four-passenger car. The fourth gen Thunderbird would offer 428 horsepower as an option.

As the Ford Thunderbird entered the 1990s with its tenth generation, another performance package was offered in the guise of the Thunderbird Super Coupe. The SC was powered by a supercharged 3.8-liter V6 that produced 210 horsepower (remember, this was the end of the Malaise Era, and 210 ponies was a pretty big deal).

The Thunderbird Super Coupe was well equipped with standard electronically-controlled speed-sensitive power steering, four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, Traction-Lok differential, and 16 x 7-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Goodyear Eagle tires, and an Adjustable Ride Control System.

1967 Eleanor Mustang From ‘Gone In 60 Seconds’ Up For Sale – Edward Snitkoff @FordAuthority

Advertisements

The Ford Mustang initially achieved cinematic immortality in Bullitt, a 1968 film starring Steve McQueen that featured some of the best car chase scenes of all time. Fortunately, it wasn’t the last Hollywood production to give the pony car a starring role. Gone in 60 Seconds, the 2000 remake starring Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie, introduced the iconic 1967 Eleanor Mustang to the world, and things haven’t been quite the same since. The Eleanor was an incredible and unique take on the ’67 Shelby GT500, and enthusiasts as well as those who aren’t your typical “car people” instantly fell in love with the design.

Three Eleanors survived production to make it into the hands of private collectors. As Ford Authority previously reported, one of them sold for quite a bit of money back in January 2020. That example went to auction, but the Eleanor featured here today is simply being offered for sale by a German dealership.

The 1967 Eleanor Mustang for sale at ChromeCars is #7 of the 11 originally built for the movie. Cinema Vehicle Services, the company responsible for producing the Mustangs, worked with legendary automotive designers Steve Sanford and Chip Foose on the design, which explains why they look so great.

This particular Eleanor has traveled far and wide over the last 20 years. A British collector brought it to Europe some time before 2012. Then, ChromeCars purchased it in 2017 and transported it back to Los Angeles to revisit the original film locations. It then made its way back across the Atlantic to Germany, where it currently resides.

Is Al Capone’s bulletproof 1928 Cadillac Town Sedan really worth $1M? – Jeff Peek @Hagerty

Advertisements

Al Capone had a big ego and an equally big car. He never lost the ego; the car, on the other hand, was sold four years after he bought it. There are many places where a bulletproof 1928 Cadillac Town Sedan would be useful, but federal prison is not one of them.

Capone—the Chicago mobster and bootlegger known as Public Enemy #1—was convicted of tax evasion in 1931 and sentenced to 11 years in federal prison. He was released eight years later, debilitated and suffering from neurosyphilis. On January 25, 1947, the 48-year-old Capone died of cardiac arrest after suffering a stroke.

Capone’s armor-plated Caddy was long gone by then, purchased first by a couple who hoped to capitalize on his fame. It later ended up in a string of museums for the same reason.

Now it could be yours. The Capone Cadillac is being offered for $1 million by Celebrity Cars Las Vegas. The car (VIN #306449) was once owned by legendary collector John O’Quinn, and it was sold by his estate for $341,000 at RM Sotheby’s St. John’s sale in 2012.

“The history is certainly fascinating, but Al Capone is a controversial figure, and the market spoke in 2012 with its last auction appearance,” says Hagerty valuation editor Andrew Newton. “The car doesn’t appear to have had major work since then, so it’s hard to argue it’s worth a lot more than it sold for eight years ago.”

If you believe it’s worth every bit of that $1M, however, a quick glance at the website reveals that financing is available. With $1000 down and an interest rate of 5 percent for 5 years, your estimated monthly payment would be $18,852.36. Quite a hefty sum, to be sure, but the car’s story is priceless.

Vehicle Description

For Sale: 1924 Maxwell Sport Touring in Macedonia, Ohio

Handsome older restoration with period-correct California top and sliding glass windows. Runs and drives quite well, comfortable leather interior, freshly rebuilt brakes. Ready for early tours and casual shows.

The single sidemount and cowl lights make this 1924 Maxwell a sport touring, one of the more popular models and surprisingly stylish for a low-cost car. But what makes this one really stand apart is that unusual California-style top with sliding glass windows. Looking it over, it appears to have been installed in-period given the vintage-looking details such as the beveled glass, brass hardware, and interesting window shades in the rear. It was cleverly integrated with the standard touring body and looks very much a part of the original design, including wind wings that fold flat and seal up against the sliding windows. The car spent the entirety of its life in California and came to Ohio about 10 years ago with a collector with a large, eclectic collection and this was his first old car. He bought it in its current condition and while it’s not 100% authentic, someone obviously spent quite a bit of money on the restoration. The dark green bodywork is quite nicely done and holding up well and has just the right amount of patina, offering a soft shine that seems entirely right on the 95-year-old Maxwell. Accessory spotlights are bolted onto the windshield hinge and give the modest Maxwell a big car look. The radiator shell, bumpers, and a few other details are chrome instead of nickel, offering lower maintenance and a dressed-up look. A trunk out back makes it a bit practical, too. It’s a substantial-looking car that looks far more expensive than it is.

This 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra SVT Has Only 668 miles – Shane McGlaun @FordAuthority

Advertisements

Sometimes if you peruse eBay, you can find some very cool cars, like this pristine 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra SVT. Only one car sat above the Cobra in the 1993 Ford Mustang line, and that was the incredibly rare 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra R. The owner of the 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra SVT seen here bought the car brand new, and then put it on jack stands in a garage.

Over its lifetime the Cobra has only driven 668 miles. The owner said that the car was just like brand new and still smells like a new car and rolls on its factory tires. The only thing that has been changed over the years is the factory battery.
