1984 TVR Tasmim 280i

Here is a 1984 TVR Tasmim 280i for sale in Denver, Colorado for sale.   The seller is a little coy with his ad.  He is asking people to submit cars they would like to trade for a Ford Consul Capri, Triump GT6, Ford Cortina MK1 GT , or an old Mini Cooper.  It looks to be in good condition but will need the top recovered as well as new injectors.

Here is a 1966 Jaguar XKE Series 1 Roadster found for sale in New York. This car came out of an estate and is matching numbers. It is blue with black interior which is one of the best color combinations for the XKE.  Unfortunately the car is not running at this time but it does come with a factory hard top as well.  This wil make a great restoration project.   The series 1 cars with the covered headlights are my favorite.

1958 Aston Martin DB 2/4 Mark III Found in St Louis

1958 Aston Martin DB 2/4 Mark III Found in St Louis

Aston Martin cars are appreciating quickly. This is a Aston Martin DB 2/4 that is for sale in St. Louis. It was posted 11 hours ago and looks to be a good deal that will go quickly. Seller states the car has been completely and correctly restored. It is a show quality restoration. This car is currently at the Amelia Island Concours in Florida. It will be transported to St Louis this week where it will be garaged. The owner lives in Switzerland and the broker handling the transaction wants 5% upfront. It sounds a bid shady and should be checked out thoroughly before handing any money over. If its a legitimate sale and everything checks out this would be a great addition for any collector. An early Aston Martin that is in pieces with no interior and a non running non matching engine already commands $120,000 minimum. You could not restore a car for less than the sellers asking price of $225,000. Please be cautious with this one but some of my best transactions have occurred when I was willing to go the extra mile when no one else bothered to go see it.

Aston Martin DB5 Project

I went to see my friend’s Aston Martin Project today and 1 of his 5 German Shepherds was waiting to greet me.    I wanted to see how the restoration has been coming along.   It looks amazing in bare metal.    This project is an Aston Martin DB5 that has been taken down to bare aluminum for a full restoration.    The Body repairs are close to being done.   In the past 3 years, these cars have skyrocketed in price.   It seems like only yesterday they were going for $100,000 and now they are $600,000 plus!  Its such a beautiful car and I cant wait until its completed.

1994 NAS Land Rover Defender 90 Project for Sale in Boston

1994 NAS Land Rover Defender Project for Sale
Location: Boston

The cult following that the Land Rover Defender 90 has is incredibly strong.   These are very capable off road vehicles and look beautiful.   There is an Arles Blue one in my area that I am dying to make the owner an offer for.   I had a 1995 Beluga black Defender 90  that had multiple tops and a surf rack.   It was No. 2001 and I would love to be reunited with my old car.

This British Racing Green Defender 90 looks like a tired basket case that has been sitting for a long time.   It sits in Boston in a side yard waiting for a more loving owner.    The front tires are  flat and the front grille  and lights  have been removed.   I would like to see more of this car and find out what its needs are.  It would be a shame for this to be parted out.  The price seems optimistic for a car that needs a total restoration but time will tell.   I am sure it is not an easy project or this car would be put on the road and for sale at twice the price.
