1981 Land Rover Santana 88 Diesel
$ 13,500

Color is Green / Tan. Delivered new in Asturias, northern Spain. Full frame 
off restoration in 2011 by a father and some team, both Land Rover 
enthusiasts and both automotive engineers on a rust free car with only 82.000 Kms, aprox. 50.000 miles. All the mechanical components has been either rebuilt, or replaced, except the bottom part of the engine, that was in good shape. Rear bumper has been reinforced to accept a tow hitch, and two "D" type 
rings. Starts immediately, and runs and drives very well. This car has a four 
speed overdrive transmission, front discs brakes, heater, and free wheeling 
hubs. The tires, four, are nearly new 235/85-16 Mud Terrain BF Goodrich, 
and the rear leaf springs are parabolic. The weakest point is the paint, 
driver quality at best. They wanted a car to enjoy, be able to be taken off 
road without the worry. This car has been used little since restoration due to 
the sons job relocation. I also have a lot of extra parts for sale which 
include such as a newly galvanized trim set including a windshield with new 
gaskets, see photos, two rust free doors, a third member,, and misc. 
parts. Texas title in my name.

1980 Toyota Landcruiser Diesel BJ 40


1980 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ 40 Diesel. A European delivery car, sold new in Portugal. Portuguese cars are unique, since they have the classics looks of the pre 1978 models, and the improvements of the later European models. This particular three owner car, I am the third owner, was delivered with the trusty 4 cylinder 3 B engine delivering 85 HP and 191 NM of torque mated to a 4 speed gearbox. Was always properly maintained, and in 2013 had a light mechanical, and a full body and paint restoration in Portugal. It was imported to the U.S. in 2015, and is titled in Texas. Starts right away, runs, drives, and shifts smoothly, and does not have any noticeable suspension, or steering noises. The frame is 
perfect, and there is not rust in this car. The original Toyota split rims,  Americans do not seem to trust them, have been replaced by 5 new BF Goodrich AT tires, mounted on 5 powder coated Toyota original rims, and 5 new Toyota original hubcaps.

1966 Corvette Big Block Roadster


427,390 HP Roadster with factory air, hardtop and softtop. Factory red, red car with a black top. Was a factory side pipe car. Power antenna, AM/FM 
radio. Real 390HP Corvette. Factory 4 speed. 3 owners from new. All owners worked for Whirlpool corporation in Eanesville Indiana. The forst owner blew the motor, trans, and rear-end gears. It was replaced with a 1972 Camaro 402 
big block, another Muncie 4 speed and 3.36 gears from a 1963 corvette. The second owner got it in the mid 1970'S and took out the motor because he was afraid he would kill himself while driving, he drank a lot! The 3rd owner bought it in 2007 and put the motor back in, new clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing. Also, he did new exhaust, brake work, and rear suspension. It still has the big block radiator, shroud, Tach, 80LB oil gauge, hood prop rod on the drivers side, rear sway bar etc. The car shows 44K MILES, the Speedo isn't working but the mileage could be close since it sat all those years. It comes with a new carpet kit, new seat covers and a new heater core. The convertible top will need to be replaced. The frame is very solid. I did not see any rust holes or patches or previous damage. The body lines are all good except the hood which could have been not fitted correctly when the motor was installed. It has newer tires. Clear Indiana title showing 44,206 miles.

1985 Toyota Landcruiser Diesel LHD BJ40

$ 7,995

Toyota Land Cruiser BJ 40 Diesel. Off white / Black. A very late European car delivered new in Portugal. Portuguese cars are very very unique. They have some of the improvements of the later cars, and some of the classic looks, vent windows, of the earlier cars. This particular car was working as a managers car at a quarry outside Lisbon, and then as a support vehicle for one of the biggest construction companies in Portugal. The paint is original, the interior, what is left, is original too. It is a four speed with drum brakes, heater, free wheeling hubs, and a roll cage. The split rims still have the original paint, and the 6x16 off road tires are in good shape. The engine starts immediately, and runs and drives well. The frame is in excellent condition, Lisbon is the European capital with the mildest weather in the European continent with very little rain and no snow, but the body has some rust holes. This holes, see photos, are mainly located at the bottom of the windshield, and at the bottom of the doors. Reproduction windshields are readily available. This car has had some rust repairs in the front right floor, see photo of the bottom of the car, and in the rear cargo area. This repairs seem more to prevent the car from rusting, than rust repairs. Looks worse than actually is, lots of surface rust in the hood. Has lots of patina, comes with an extra hood, and is a good opportunity to acquire a unique European version. Drive " as is", and restore later. This is a rare left hand drive diesel. The mileage is 344,000 KM = 213750 miles. The vehicle is running from a bottle in the engine compartment.

149-NAIROBI PEARL. One of 11 in 1957. TRIM 1381-Ligh gray bayou cloth, white leather and wool carpet. Mileage shows 86550. Probably correct. California desert car. Original black plates. I think it is the original motor, but the pad is cracked off where the number is stamped. It does have the brougham engine block only attached oil canister down below on the pass side. Frame number is correct, as is the door tag. I put a battery on the car and the motor spun over. I also found a repair receipt from 1989. The windshield and roof are good. Car appears to have no rust holes or patch panels. I can only get the drivers door open. It does not have the dual carb setup or air cleaner. No vanities. I do have a correct memory seat control for the drivers door and a better right rear window moulding. This car has unusual Brougham letters which look factory made instead of the Eldorado letters on the front and back. I don't know anything about this. Right rear bumper end is cracked, but repairable. Very rare car with an unusual original color.

1963 Rochdale Olympic Phase 2

$ 8,500

1963 Rochdale Olympic Phase  2 Chassis  #631802. A 3 or 4 owner car. Last owner since 1982 in Missouri. Ford 1500 Cortina GT? Motor. Not running but engine turns. One of 150 Phase 2 cars made. I contacted the Rochdale owners club and was provided the following: 

The Olympic was ordered in 1963 by an English man named Robin Rackman who lived in Chicago,Illinoise and he was an Airline Pilot who flew Jumbo Jets.
He flew with his wife over to England in July 1963 to collect the Olympic.
The Olympic was registered in England in July 1963 on Liscence plate 5348 
DK and Chassis Number/VIN Number 631802, the 1802 is the Order Invoice 
number in the Factory Sales Ledger. 

Robin and his wife then set of on a 6-week tour of Europe in the Olympic, finishing up in Rotterdam, Holland where he flew back to America and the Olympic was shipped by sea back to Chicago. With a family on the way, Robin decided to sell it with an advert in Road & Track in the late summer of 1964. He only got one response from a young chap who lived in Kansas, he turned up with $2000 and disappeared into the sunset and that is the last we heard of the Olympic till you contacted us. The Olympic has been lost for 51 years.

Attached is a photo of the car in Chicago in October 1963. From the photos you kindly sent me it looks as if someone has modified the front steel subframe, suspension and steering. We have had the front Subframes re-manufactured again, so it may be possible with a new subframe and the used suspension and steering parts you have on the bench to rebuild the front back to originality.

We in the Rochdale Owners Club back here in England are very pleased to 
learn that this Olympic after having been lost for 51 years still survives it 
what looks to be in very good condition. We believe 8 Olympics were sent to America/Canada and this makes 4 that are now known to have survived.

Thanks again for your help.
Regards Tony.

1939 Caddy Woodie Project

$ 29,500 OBO

1939 Cadillac Woodie Project. Built by Jos. Wildanger and Co. Red Bank, NJ. They were a prominent coach builder for the carriage trade of New York. The first car owner ordered a 1939 Cadillac Convertible Sedan, Series 61. This car was sold new at Fischer Cadillac in Newark, NY. and went straight to Wildanger for modification into this car. The photo in the listing is the actual car I am selling before it got taken apart. The first owner ordered a 1939 Cadillac convertible sedan, series 61, used it for a few years, then had Wildanger convert it to a Woodie to carry his guns and dogs on hunting trips. It was passed down from generation to generation, then sold in the early 1990's. This owner took it apart to restore it - never happened. Lost some parts along the way. What I have for sale is the body, which is in great shape. The original motor and transmission, the rust free fenders, moldings, doors and windows etc. I also bought a 1939  Cadillac series 61 4 door as a parts car for the chassis and other bits. The car comes with the body shop dolly included. 

Please look at all the photos on my website for what is missing. For sure its missing the original frame, but the spare car has the same frame, steering column etc, front suspension, door and tailgate hinges.I do have one door hinge. Missing window regulators inside door panels. I have a grill from the parts car.  I think I have most of the outside moldings. In the photos are some running boards. I don't think they are from this car but the buyer can have them. I did not take it apart so don't get mad at me!. The dolly and all the parts fit inside my enclosed trailer. I mat deliver for a fee. I do not know if I can deliver the parts car, but it could be sent on a car  hauler. .
