Few cars have achieved the level of American muscle icon quite like this 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396. It’s what pretty much anyone, car enthusiast or not, pictures in their mind when a classic muscle car is mentioned. This particular example from Art & Speed Classic Car Gallery has been kept surprisingly original, considering its age and the fact it obviously wasn’t immediately thrown into storage. Likely, it’s one the few Chevelles to have escaped a rotisserie treatment, yet isn’t left to rot in a rural field somewhere.
There are restorations, and then there are extensive frame-off, nut-and-bolt restorations. The former will give you a really nice classic car, while the latter will give you a vehicle that looks like it was built yesterday, which is the case with this beautiful 1980 Toyota FJ40 that will be up for auction in February through GAA Classic Cars.
There’s a lot to love about this 2013 Honda CB500XD. First of all, if you’re looking for an affordable used bike, the price of $4,190 is pretty nice. For that kind of cash you can’t expect perfection and you certainly won’t get it here. But you will get a motorcycle which looks stealthy and should be both fun as well as reliable.

Those who are familiar with Cobra replicas will agree that this is example is exceptionally done. The minimum bid is $25,000, but it is estimated to go between $40,000 and $60,000 with a few days left.
Don Yenko is well-known for his incredible Camaro builds from the 1960s era. While some may argue that this classic is a just clone, this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Yenko tribute is so much more than that. This vintage gem was built to as a tribute to Don Yenko, and it was recreated as close to the original specifications of a Yenko Camaro as possible. Art & Speed is pleased to offer the opportunity to own this sweet '69 Chevy Camaro "Yenko" tribute.

The market for classic first-gen Ford Broncos is red hot these days, and this cool blue '68 Bronco is one mean machine. Having undergone a full frame-off restoration, this 1968 Ford Bronco is ready for cruising and showing, while the big lift and heavy-duty winch mean you can still hit the trails with this rig as well. This Bronco is part of an online auction on Motorious from The Stables Group, and it would make the perfect addition to any collection.
Everyone wants a car which will turn heads and cause onlookers to stare in awe. And while there are many ways to do this, grabbing this 1971 Ford Mustang Convertible is one of the more original methods.

Currently, this car is being offered through Awesome Joe Auctions, with bidding ending on Sunday, February 2.
Let’s be honest: some people just look at the badges on cars. Yes, it’s an ignorant move but it’s far more common than you might even want to admit. And that’s half the fun of owning a car like this 2008 Factory Five GTM. Sure, it has those undeniable supercar looks, thanks to the mid-engine configuration, low and wide stance, plus aerodynamic body panels which will turn heads. It also serves up unbelievable performance. This flagship supercar from The Stables is being auctioned off on Motorious right now, so this is your chance.
Really wow people when you pull up in this 2005 Ford GT. While owning any GT is certainly impressive, this one is unique even among its peers. Only five 2005 models were ordered with the stripe delete, so you’re going to really stand out. This American supercar is part of the Winter AutoFest Lakeland auction being put on by Carlisle Auctions, so now is the time for action.
