TOYODA MODEL AA: FINDING THE WORLD’S OLDEST TOYOTA

Only 1,404 examples of Toyota’s first passenger car, the Toyoda Model AA, were built in the six years of production from 1936 to 1942. Until recently it was thought that none of these cars had survived to this day. Even Toyota itself had been forced to fabricate a ground-up replica of the Model AA because an original example could not be found to exhibit at the Toyota Automobile Museum in Japan. So when news of a 1936 car, one of only 100 units built in the very first year of…

Guy Who Sees Two Cars For Sale On Facebook Realizes He Hit The Jackpot

According to the story on the Barnfinds website, this pair of Buick Grand Nationals was purchased new in 1987 and almost immediately parked in the owners garage. After nearly 30 years, the eccentric owner decided it was time to sell the cars, so he posted them on Facebook for $200,000. While the price kept tire kickers at bay, the story itself drew the attention of Grand National fanatic William and his buddy Shawn, who actually had the cash to make the purchase. The owner required some ridiculous hoop-jumping for the…

Could This Be The Greatest Barn Find Ever?

Our friend Tom Cotter has the enviable chore of walking into dilapidated barns and rural homesteads seeking out long-lost barn finds. Recently, his travels took him somewhere not far off the beaten path – still pretty much on the path, in fact – to an abandoned home in an upscale North Carolina neighborhood. In a rough garage next to the condemned house was the find of a lifetime! I’ve been following Tom’s work on The Barn Find Hunter ever since it started, and it’s gratifying to see him come upon a collection like…

$4M Barn Find: Ferrari 275 GTB and 427 Cobra Hidden for Decades

Barn finds. For automotive fanatics it’s the equivalent of Indiana Jones setting out to find the lost Highlander sword used by King Arthur to defeat Darth Vader in the battle for Middle Earth. Yes, such things are that epic. However, when you start talking about vintage Ferraris and original big-block Cobras hidden away for decades, there simply is no comparison. Not in Hollywood. Not in even in the known universe. Yes, we’re being a bit dramatic here, but for very good reason. Hagerty’s series The Barn Find Hunter has unearthed a group of truly exceptional relics,…

Chevrolet El Morocco Convertible – The Rarest Of The 1957 Chevys

The rarest of the 1957 Chevys, the “Poor Man’s Cadillac”, the El Morocco was a customized full-size car produced by Ruben Allender based on the 1956 and 1957 Chevrolet. For the first time ever, GM allowed an outsider to design a custom Chevy and this rare 1957 Chevy is an example of what happens when beauty meets beast. Allender was not a coachbuilder in the traditional sense, but rather a customizer as the 1956-1957 El Moroccos were face-lifted Tri-Five Chevrolets with bone stock drivetrains and interiors whose bodywork was restyled…

11 Features You No Longer See in Cars

It’s hard to picture what today’s teenagers will wax nostalgic about 30 years from now when they reminisce about their first car. (It still required gasoline, perhaps?) Who knows how automobiles will change in the future; what we do know is how different they are today from 30 or more years ago. If you fondly remember being surrounded by two or three tons of solid Detroit steel with a whip antenna on the front from which you could tie a raccoon tail or adorn with an orange Union 76 ball, and enough leg…

Preston Tucker’s personal 1948 Tucker expected to command more than $1M at January auction

The Tucker Corporation was merely a flash in the late 1940s pan, but it remains an incredibly intriguing story in American automobile history. The company’s turmoil, conspiracy, and demise is a story that was documented, with some creative license, in the 1988 motion picture “Tucker: The Man and His Dream,” starring Jeff Bridges and directed by Francis Ford Coppola. Only 51 Tucker sedans were produced and 47 survive. One very important survivor will grace RM Sotheby’s Arizona auction on January 18. It’s not only rare, it was Preston Tucker’s personal car. The Tucker 48,…
