  1. $15500 or best offer. . I decided we don't need 2 Figaro's in our collection of 30 cars and I am selling my personal Figaro. It is a special ' Gulf ' edition ( since we live by the Gulf of Mexico and take it to the beach ) , or "Bespoke" as they say in the UK. Custom metallic blue paint over a rust free and damage free body. No dents and no rust to start with and the car was a Japan import years ago when it became legal to bring them in. I liter Turbo motor, auto transmission, ps, pb, pw, manual top, air conditioning. 1 of 20,000 made for their 1 year only production in 1991. Probably less than half left world wide. The car is damage and rust free. Nice presentable chrome but not show quality ( I drove this weekly and had no intention of taking to shows for points ) , 4 brand new Dunlop tires, new brakes all around, 4 resprayed hubcaps, new battery, tuned up, all fluids flushed and refilled, struts replaced - car needs nothing and everything is working including the A/C and power windows. The aftermarket radio even has a Japanese Siri lady that comes on and says something when you turn on the car./ I left it because it always makes me laugh. . It has a brand new custom interior including new carpet, resprayed door panels and dash, new dash pad, new headliner and interior alcantra trim, custom leather and fabric front and back seats with the pattern matching the carpet and exterior paint. New convertible top AND new rear window cover finishes it up. You will be happy to drive and show this car anywhere even though it is a driver and not a show car. Clean Florida title in my name ready to hand over to you. Absolutely nothing wanted in trade. We own 30 cars and are scaling back our collection. My wife is keeping her Figaro but we don't want 2 of them. The buyer will be responsible for pick up or shipping and the car is sold as is / where is with no warranties because it is 28 years old. I will however have my mechanic go over the car for the buyer at no charge to change the oil/filter and do an overall safety check and make sure everything is working and adjusted properly.

  3. Thanks, I hope so too. I like looking at it but not driving it and can't justify paying for storage for a car I don't use.
  4. Why is this rare original car still here ? Price is reasonable -- come and see or drive it
  5. PRICE REDUCED - I WANT IT GONE AND NEED THE SPACE $19,995 OBO
  6. PRICE REDUCED $ 24,995 OBO -- I NEED THE SPACE AND WANT IT GONE
  7. PRICE REDUCED -- $ 12,995 OBO -- I NEED THE SPACE AND WANT IT GONE
  8. Believe it or not this is an ' antique " now. Here is your chance to own an unrestored, original time capsule. We have an extensive collection of original cars and are slowly reducing what we own. The older I get the less maintenance I want to do and the more I want to just drive the cars. This was pulled out of storage in our collection after sitting for some time. This is a 1978 Datsun 510 wagon from Tennessee. All original with the following exceptions. Due to age and for safety we replaced the following. 1. battery 2. 4 x tires 3. wheel cylinders and flex hoses 4. complete engine tune up 5. Lube / oil / filter /rear end fluid and brake fluid were all flushed changed and refilled. 6. Fuel tank flush and fuel filter. 7. interior carpet. The car has been buffed to a high shine to restore the faded paint and there is ZERO rust or body damage. Interior has been cleaned and the carpets are being replaced due to staining / sun fading and musty smell this week or next ( depending on when the carpet arrives ) The ONLY thing I have found wrong with the car after having it for the time I have , are the 2 missing fender emblems. The car starts right up and runs and drives well. I wouldn't hesitate to take it anywhere if that was your wish. It needs to be driven instead of just sitting in our storage building. The car does have the following options. Clock, Air conditioning. I assume the rest were standard Datsun issue but not sure. It has an automatic transmission, manual brakes and steering , am/fm radio, fold down rear seat. If you have questions just ask. If you want to see or drive the car, just ask. We have more than enough cars and we do not want anything in trade so if you send an email asking if we will take something in trade, it will be ignored. As this is a 42 year old car, it is sold as is, where is, with no warranties. As of today's date, everything on the car is working like the day the car was made. I am limited in space here with photos so if you want more , just email me and I can send them all to you. $ 14,995 or best offer

  10. Probably the rarest of all Crosley cars. This is 1 of only 358 Crosley Hot Shot Super Sports made in 1952, the last year of Crosley production. Not many are left. The Revs auto museum here in Naples shows how the Collier family got into cars and racing by using one of these to win the early AACA races at Sebring. This is an older lovingly done restoration by an elderly Crosley Club member who has passed. I bought the car from the estate to add to our collection as I have always wanted one and this one was completely restored from top to bottom. I have not driven it more than a mile and it has just ended up sitting in our garage. I was thinking my wife would enjoy driving it since she has an affinity for small cars ( she has a Metropolitan Convertible and Nissan Figaro ) but like me, the older she gets the less she wants to drive a manual transmission. So again the car just sits. As the car was restored a dozen or so years ago, it still shows very nicely but it is not 100%. There are a couple of very small paint chips on the front hood panel and some areas of chrome that are starting to age, but they are too small to show up in photos. The car could use a good detail and cleaning but I haven't noticed anything other than that. All the fluids have been flushed and the car tuned up since I obtained it plus new tires in the last year and as I said it just sits. It unfortunately sat from the prior owner and now it is just sitting with us which is why we are considering parting with it. I have sent the car to a body shop I use to have the entire car detailed and polished. Yes, I probably could have done it myself but it is still 90 degrees and humid here in S. Florida and I am too old to deal with that. You can see by the last picture on the page, we are cramped. In addition to 4 cars in our two car garage, we have storage units with the rest of the 12 cars so no, we do not want anything in trade at all. Having some extra room to open a car door is actually the goal here. As this is a 67 year old car, it is being sold as is , where is with no warranties. If you are interested, we are open to reasonable offers. $ 24,995 Obo. problem with site is not allowing any of the photos to load - if you are interested just email me and I can send you the photos directly.
  11. Very rare, 1974 Chevrolet Vega Estate Wagon - time capsule car. Roughly 34,000 original miles. They never made many and good luck finding another one that is unmolested and rust free. Auto, a/c, am/fm, manual steering and brakes, RUST FREE. Shiny paint, no dents, no damage , Runs and drives well ( well it drives like a Vega so there is that ) This is a very well kept, unrestored original car. I have flushed all the fluids; tuned it up; put on new tires ; installed a new battery and drive it around on nice days. It is fun taking it to the car shows here and it attracts crowds which makes the usual Corvette/Mustang people rather upset. Most of the time it just sits in storage which is why we are considering selling it. We have a large collection of original cars so no, nothing is wanted in trade. We are at the stage in our lives where we are downsizing our car collection slightly. The car is in Naples FL and kept in an air conditioned storage facility but it can be seen and driven if you are interested. It is currently tagged and registered. $ 12,500 or nearest offer - no trades
  12. Car is still available and sitting in a storage unit - undriven and lonely

  15. It is something that someone made using Crosley parts but it isn't a Crosley per se
  16. PRICE REDUCED - car just sits inside a storage unit and someone should enjoy it more than often than I do -- remember, Canadian $ taken at par
  17. Price reduced because the car is just sitting in a storage unit - someone should enjoy it more often than I do
