  1. 1962 MG MGA Mark II Coupe

    In my opinion, the late 50's and early 60's MGs have one the coolest designs out there especially coupes!

    I have acquired this coupe from a gentleman who owned this one for more than 25 years! It is a driver, but not a show car.

    There were only 26 1962 MG MGA coupes that were destined for US market! So yes, it is somewhat a rare car. It is numbers matching car (VIN and body), but the engine was upgraded to 64' MG MGB 1800cc engine, which, according to my research, is quite a rare engine too as well as very common upgrade for MGA.

    It is practically rust free and solid car with everything working (including all the gauges, lights, horn, wipers, heater etc). It also comes with some neat upgrades such as

    - Modern radio with CD player and four speakers - done very tastefully
    - Working A/C!

    - Electric fans (absolutely no overheating issues)

    The interior is very nice, clean and tear free. 

    Overall, this is super cool, rare coupe that is ready for an open road. It has been taken on many long trips.

     

    Asking price - $18,500


    If interested, please PM or call/txt me at 281.six8six.5005, and I can give you all the details.

    Sold as is

    Thank you and ride safe.

  2. 1965 Plymouth Barracuda

    This is my second Barracuda that I have pleasure owning. 

    It is definitely NOT a show car, but it is a solid driver and has very minimal surface rust (not rot or rust through!)

    Specs are below:

    I was told that the mileage on the car is correct at 35K, but I do not have proof and the title will read Exempt due to the car age
    Has correct VIN number on the drivers' door door post and factory tag in the engine bay
    All the chrome and insignia are correct, presentable and on the car
    The undercarriage is solid and still has original undercoating that has peeled of at places
    273 2bbl Engine - runs very smoothly with no knocks, noises and has zero leaks!
    Automatic transmission - shifts smoothly
    Everything on the car works - all gauges and lights, indicator lights, horn, original radio!, heater, dome lights etc.
    The hand brake works but will have to be adjusted
    Does not overheat and does not burn oil/coolant
    The interior is little faded but clean and very presentable. Seats have no major tears and rips.
    Headliner is clean and tight, but has unraveled seam upfront (it does not bother me, but you may decide to change it)
    Doors shut firm and tight
    All the glass is good with no chips and cracks
    The paint is faded and very far from being a show quality. It has plenty of dings and touch ups, but it adds to its character (there is a chipped paint section about 2" x 3" next to the passenger side back window that exposes the sheet metal - again no rust through...just missing paint)
    It will also come with original manual
    It will come with clear/clean TX title in my name
    Car is sold as is where is

    Overall, this is a very solid, driver quality Barracuda that you can enjoy as is without fretting over occasional nicks/scrapes or people coming up to it and touching it.

     

    My asking price is $12,500.

    I will be happy to provide you with any additional details you may need and answer any questions you may have. You can reach me through here or at my cell 281.six8six.5005. The car is located in Houston, TX.

    Thank you and ride safe.

  3. Good Afternoon:

    I have recently acquired 1959 Edsel Ranger 2 door sedan (never had this car before), which is pretty stock with Economy 6 cylinder engine - also all stock. When I started the car the other day, I noticed a slight coolant leak/drip from the top of the valve, which I assume is manual heater control valve (or not) but I am not sure. (Photo is below/ attached below). I do not believe this is a drain valve is one of the heater hoses is directly connect to the valve itself.


    Does anyone know if this is, in fact, heater control/shut off valve  and  what would be an easy fix except obviously changing the entire valve and hose (the hose is in decent shape). I have tried to hand tighten/loosen the valve, and, boy, this thing will not move. I sprayed some WD40, and the thing will not budge. Before, I start screwing around with this, I wanted to check on the forum and get any advise from people who know what they are doing :eek:)!
     

    Any advice is much appreciated!

    Thank you.

  5. SOLD!!!! Hello there!

     

    Here we have a very nice, clean and pretty unmolested 1947 Ford 1/2 ton pickup. The truck is an excellent driver with a classic look. It scoots pretty nicely on the road and is perfect for local runs, meets and Sunday drives. My family and I enjoy driving it whenever weather permits.
    The truck came from Florida, and I have some old beaten up registration cards from the 60’s to the 90’s showing the truck resided WV and FL. Some features below:

    Clean/Clear TX title in my name
    No rust or rot!
    Does not overheat!
    Does not smoke or leak!
    Flathead 6 with no knocks, no smoke or leaks
    Standard 3 speed (on floor) with reverse – shifts very smoothly
    Drum brakes – stops very well!
    Paint is very nice and shines but has some dents, scratches and bubbling – 5 footer
    The floors had repairs some time in the past
    Windows go nicely up and down
    The chrome is nice but does show light surface rust
    The windshield wiper works!
    The horn works!
    The lights (hi/lo) work
    Tires are bias ply correct to the year
    It has been converted to 12V but other than that it is pretty bone stock
    The only gauges that are working are Oil and Temp

    You do not see these very often especially uncut ones. I have priced the truck very reasonably to leave a space for your touches.
