  1. Partial trades considered for a large HP brass car or another proper Full Classic. Thanks.
  2. Still for sale…. We might consider a partial trade for a large horsepower brass car or another proper Full Classic.
  3. This is likely to be one of the finest 2007, Ford 250 Harley Davidson Diesel Pickups in existence. This vehicle is being sold by the original owner, a well known collector of vintage automobiles. It has been stored in a climate controlled, museum-like building since being purchased and has been driven just over 12,000 highway miles. It has never pulled a trailer and the pickup bed has never hauled a load. This truck has never been stored outside or driven in the winter. It has never hauled a smoker or kids. This truck is virtually mint. The black paint is absolutely pristine. It is bright and shiny-just like new. The interior is also like new and shows no signs of wear. The seats, carpets, mats, headliner, door panels, dashboard, etc are virtually perfect. There are no chips on the glass. The wheels have never touched a curb or have been scraped. The Harley bed liner and the roll back bed cover are perfect. Underneath, the chassis and drivetrain components retain virtually all of there original paint. The chassis components still have their original labels and chalk marks from the factory. The engine bay is spotless and the two batteries have just been replaced. Included with the sale are the original window sticker (2007 MSRP was 53,440.00), all of the original books, manuals and warranty books, the original Harley Davidson/Ford commemorative license plate, all of the original wheel locks are still in their original envelopes, etc. Every piece of paper that was sold with this truck is present and in its original envelope. If you are looking for the best, this truck is certainly worthy of your consideration. Clear and current Michigan title. VIN# 1FTSW21P47EB29709. This truck is realistically priced at 29,950.00. Please call 734-730-4274 or email: motoringicons@hotmail.com. Detroit, MI. Thanks.
  4. If you like a great car with a great story, this is it. This 1949 Oldsmobile 98 Convertible was purchased by Gloria Peral of Massachusetts as a two year old, nearly new car in 1951. She obviously liked this top of the line Oldsmobile as she kept it for nearly 60 years!!!. Not only did she like this car, she used it regularly but carefully, always had the car serviced and repaired as needed, and never drove it far from the the small town in which she lived. Many years ago, she had the car carefully repainted its original metallic gray color and had the original tan top replaced with a black vinyl top. During her last decade of ownership, she embarked on a costly mechanical restoration of the vehicle including a 6,000.00 engine rebuild, new brakes, rebuilt front suspension, rebuilt electrical system including the starter, new exhaust and Coker tires. She also had all of the hydraulics rebuilt so that the top, windows and seats would operate as new. Like most conscientious car owners, she kept all receipts, documents, bills and always purchased extra new parts "just in case" she might need them at a later date. In 2011, she decided that she was no longer able to care for or drive her beloved Oldsmobile and sold it to us. When we purchased the car, the original interior was too far gone to be usable or comfortable, so a completely new interior was installed using the original as a pattern. We enjoyed driving the car for a bit and in 2013 we sold it to its third owner, a gentleman from Pennsylvania. He bought the car as a gift for his parents because their first car was a 1949 Oldsmobile 98 Convertible. They enjoyed the car for the next few years but decided that they could no longer care for the car and recently sold it back to us. We were glad to get it back, it's a really neat car. The car has been recently inspected front to back, top to bottom and is still in excellent overall condition. The 303 Rocket V-8 engine runs like new and has very few miles on it since the rebuild. The Hydramatic transmission shifts like new, the suspension and steering is tight and all of the electric and hydraulic components operate as they should. The body is rust and dent free and shows no signs of any damage or repair. The door, hood and trunk margins are excellent and even and the overall body fit is better than most show cars. The trunk is all original including the mat, the dash assembly is excellent including all of the gauges and controls. This three owner (four if you count us!) Oldsmobile is just an honest old car that hasn't been completely restored but has been appropriately refurbished as needed and has never been neglected or improperly cared for. The look and presentation are great. This car runs and drives like new and its ownership provenance is impeccable. A rare and desirable body style that is ready to use and enjoy. Very realistically priced in today's market at 33,000.00. Located near Jefferson, WI. Please call 734-730-4274 or email: motoringicons@hotmail.com to schedule a viewing and test drive or for more photos and information. Thank you.

    Possibly the greatest car sale story of all time

    Awesome story. "Like" times 1000. Anytime I get the "I need to check with my wife" line I tell them to go shopping elsewhere. Awhile back, a prolific and current poster on this very forum spent two months "interested" in a car I had for sale. He pestered me incessantly and I provided everything he asked for. We finally agreed to a price and he agreed to purchase the car. He was supposed to send a deposit and I agreed to split the payments between two months once the deposit was received. After sending him this agreement in writing, he stopped contacting me (yet, continued to post frequently on this forum). After numerous attempts to reach him, he responded that his wife told him he could not by the car. For the heck of it, I googled his name. You know what? He is not married!!! I also checked with someone else who knew him and confirmed he is not married. Not only is he a flake, but a liar as well!!! Most of the collectors I know and tour with are husband and wife teams. They both encourage each other to enjoy the hobby to its fullest. I, too, have closed many deals because the wife encouraged the husband to buy a particular car. I also know a few people who continually lie about their purchases to their spouses and, of course, their spouses resent their involvement with the hobby. Who could blame them? Honesty is always the best policy.

    1931 Nash 890 Ambassador Club Sedan *SOLD*

    I remember judging this car at the Glenmoor Gathering Concours some years ago. It is absolutely gorgeous inside and out. The quality of the restoration is top notch. Nash made extremely high quality cars in the prewar era.
  10. SOLD. Here is a neat bronze, gear driven auxiliary oil pump assembly that could easily be adapted to a Model T or other period engine that is being converted to pressurized oiling. This pump can also be used just used as an extra way of circulating some oil around the crankcase. Great for a vintage speedster, racer, or ? It is in excellent condition, maybe even New Old Stock. it has an aluminum mounting plate but everything else is bronze or brass. It turns smoothly. The price is 150.00 including shipping in the USA. I will ship outside the US for extra. I accept PayPal. Email directly at:motoringicons@hotmail.com or call 734-730-4274. Detroit, MI I do not check PMs. Thanks.
