Having a classic car is an incredibly rewarding experience that goes far beyond just transportation. A classic car captures the craftsmanship and style of its period. Owning a classic is an opportunity to preserve history while being part of a passionate community that appreciates the enduring beauty and artistry of these automotive marvels.

Recently, four breathtaking vehicles sold on the auction site, including a 1967 Porsche 910, a 1978 Lincoln Mark V, a 1967 El Camino, and a 1975 Toyota SR5 pickup. Let’s take a tour of these stunning and historic vehicles. 

1967 Porsche 9101967 Porsche 910

This powerful and luxurious classic 1967 Porsche 910 boasts an incredibly unique style, with fiberglass body panels and a tubular space-frame chassis. The car was just one of 27 examples that Porsche produced, and the manufacturer’s factory competition department used this unit for research and development until 1971.

The car went on to participate in the 1972 Watkins Glen 6 Hours, the 1973 24 Hours of Daytona, and multiple California SCCA events. It featured a six-cylinder engine while on the racing circuit, but it now boasts a 2.0-liter Type 901/02 flat-six engine with triple-throat Weber carburetors, a twin-spark ignition, fiberglass shrouding and cooling ducts, and three-into-one exhaust headers. The car sends power to its rear wheels through a five-speed manual transaxle with an oil cooler and a side-mount cable-shift mechanism. 

Some of the car’s other equipment features include its adjustable coilover suspension, ventilated disc brakes with aluminum calipers, black magnesium wheels with hexagonal nuts, and Avon slick tires. 

If you take a look inside this remarkable vehicle, you’ll see bucket seats that sport an eye-catching red trim as well as Sabelt six-point harnesses. Its interior also features a MOMO steering wheel, green-letter VDO tachometer, hinged vent windows, sill-mounted storage nets, a driver-side ventilation duct, and a fire-suppression system.

Because the car is so rare and features spectacular options, it sold for $2.5 million.

The Ford Motor Company developed the next car on our tour to commemorate its 75th year in business. The car boasts an eye-catching Diamond Blue Metallic (38) finish along with a matching vinyl Landau roof and trunk garnish. Its exterior also features silver and blue pinstripes, opera windows, fender vents, dual side mirrors, automatic concealed headlights, and chrome bumpers with overriders. 

This magnificent car sits on top of turbine-style 15” aluminum wheels with 235/75 American Classic whitewall tires. The car also comes with power steering and four-wheel disc brakes. 

This 1978 Lincoln is powered by a 460 cu in V8 with a four-barrel carburetor. It has a factory rating of 210 horsepower and 357 foot-pounds of torque, and the engine sends power to its rear wheel through a three-speed automatic transmission.

The car’s cabin sports power-adjustable front bucket seats as well as a rear bench seat. These comfortable seats are upholstered in Wedgewood Blue Luxury Cloth with Broad Lace inserts. The interior also features attractive woodgrain appliques accenting the dashboard, door panels, center console, and its two-spoke steering wheel. Plus, it comes with power windows, automatic climate control, cruise control, a CB radio, and a Quadrasonic AM/FM stereo with an eight-track player. 

The lucky buyer was able to walk away with this remarkable classic for $43,500.

Next up is a sleek and breathtaking 1967 Chevrolet El Camino that was refurbished in 2021. Those working on the car made critical mechanical and cosmetic updates, including refinishing the car in its current shade of black and gray with subtle orange pinstriping. The exterior also has a chrome grille, quadruple headlights, a pickup-style bed, a drop-down tailgate, and chrome bumpers.

This 1967 El Camino comes with impressive equipment features, including power steering, front and rear adjustable coilovers, and four-wheel disc brakes with Wilwood calipers as well as drilled and slotted rotors. The car also boasts black 17” American Racing wheels with polished lips and 245/45 Goodyear Eagle GT tires. 

Under its hood, the El Camino featured a recently-installed 6.2-liter LS3 V8 with a conical air filter, MagnaFlow mufflers, tubular exhaust headers, and an aluminum radiator. It channels power to its rear wheels via a 4L80-E four-speed automatic transmission and a Ford 9-inch rear axle. 

Black-vinyl-upholstered bench seats and matching carpets adorn the car’s interior, which also features a Vintage Air climate control system, a retro-style head unit, an aftermarket steering wheel, and Dakota Digital instrumentation with a 160-mph speedometer. 

This breathtaking classic sold for $40,000, a reasonable price for a piece of Chevrolet history.

1975 toyota1975 Toyota SR5 Pickup

Last on our tour is a classic Toyota pickup truck with a stylish Olive Green (637) finish. This highly distinct vehicle has rear mud flaps, tow mirrors, bed-mounted tie-down points, and an aftermarket rear bumper. The truck also features a recently replaced exhaust system. 

While the truck’s exterior remains incredibly stunning, it does have some scuffs, scratches, and other wear and tear along its body. It also has corrosion on its underside. 

The truck features front disc and rear drum brakes and resides on black, slotted 14” steel wheels with 185/70 Douglas All-Season tires and Toyota-logo hubcaps. A 2.2-liter 20R inline-four engine powers it and sends power to its rear wheels via its five-speed manual transmission. 

The Toyota SR5’s cabin comes with tan-upholstered high-back bucket seats and matching door panels. Its interior features a heater, an AM radio, and an aftermarket shift knob, but its air conditioning system is unable to produce cold air.

The driver’s seat sits in front of a two-spoke steering wheel and aftermarket gauges, including its oil pressure, temperature, and amperage gauges. Other instrumentation includes its 100-mph speedometer, coolant temperature gauge, warning lights, and fuel gauge.

Due to its signs of aging and corrosion, the truck sold for the reasonable price of $7,600.
