Rare 1966 Shelby GT350H found in ‘little old lady’s garage’

Old rental cars often make the least appealing used vehicles, but there’s one very big exception to that rule: The 1966 Shelby GT350H. The “Rent-a-Racer” was a run of special edition cars built for Hertz by Carrol Shelby that were based on his high-performance Shelby GT350 version of the Ford Mustang. Along with two prototypes, only 999 were made, and the vast majority of them were finished in Hertz’s signature black and gold color scheme, but a few were painted other colors. Some were literally driven by renters from the agency…

Two Plymouth Superbirds Make For One Hell of a Barn Find

At some point, you’d think we’d run out of “barn finds,” collector cars stored away for years and years, wasting away, waiting to be rediscovered. Then, two Plymouth Superbirds show up in a garage in Maine, having sat there for almost four decades. The only conclusion we can draw is that barn-finds are clearly a renewable resource. The two ‘Birds—a B5 Blue example with a 440ci V8 and a four-speed stick, and an Alpine White with a 426 Hemi and an auto—are listed separately on eBay, though the seller says they’d like to sell them…

The Abandoned Dealership Full Of Classic Cars

All across this great nation of ours, there are countless buildings like the one featured in this video from the Amesie’s Automotive Corner YouTube channel.

When he was hired to demolish an old building and clear out a property in North Carolina, contractor David Mount surely didn’t know he’d stumble across a treasure trove of 1930s cars.

The only thing visible was a bit of grille and a pair of headlights under a pile of debris. It was unearthed to reveal that it was a remarkably intact 1933 Plymouth roadster, complete…

In a recently aired episode of the hit History Channel show, “American Pickers,” hosts and antique scavengers Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz tracked down the band’s original tour van in Chesterfield that the group used to schlep to gigs around New England in the early 1970s.
