The Coolest Vintage Rides for Sale On eBay, 8/5/14

”When a horse learns to buy martinis, I’ll learn to like horses.”—Steve McQueen

Nothing but the very best vintage rides on eBay Motors this week.

1969 R/S COPO Camaro
If you like Camaros even a little bit, you’ll probably want some private time after seeing this one. And even if you hate them, you’ve got to respect one of the rarest, most powerful, and most legendary muscle cars of the 1960s. Amazingly, this one’s in almost all original condition, and still comes with its original order telegram. [More pics…

The Most Insane Original Mini In North America
There are so many different things at play with this car it’s hard to pick where to start. You can see the extreme widebody kit it has—that helps turn the already kart-like handling of the Mini into something more akin to a bonafide race car, and it's also probably the most mild thing done to it. It’s been converted to rear-wheel drive, and the engine’s been swapped with a 400 hp Honda VTEC unit...that’s also set up to run on nitrous or jet fuel. [More pics…

Jaguar XKSS Replica
The Jaguar XKSS was the ultra low-volume street version of Jaguar’s legendary D-Type, driven by people like Steve McQueen. This one’s a replica, but it’s a replica built on an old British race car frame using period-correct Jaguar running parts. If you don’t have a spare five or six million laying around for an original, this is as close as you’re going to get. [More pics…

1976 Ford Bronco
At first blush, you might mistake this for one of Icon’s builds, such is the completeness of the modifications to this Bronco. You’d be wrong, though. With a fresh 340 hp Ford 302 under the hood, a more-than-capable off-road suspension, and a modernized interior with a killer sound system, you wouldn’t be wrong for checking your balance while staring at the “Make Offer” button.

2500 hp 1932 Ford Delivery Van
So, from a visual standpoint we’re guessing we don’t need to tell you why this is such an utterly badass hot rod. Just know that each of the supercharged 572 cid Hemis is putting out 1,250 hp. The rest of the car’s build is just as impressive. Over $200,000 has been poured into this car, and it’s not just a show stopper…somehow, this sucker’s street legal, at least in Michigan.

1957 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible
There aren’t a lot of cars out there that are both nice enough and rare enough to simultaneously be worthy candidates for Concours show duty and priced at the level where you’d be foolish to drive it on the street. This is one of ‘em, though, and it’s just about perfect for cruising down the Vegas Strip, isn’t it? [More pics…

1968 Dodge Dart Hurst Hemi Replica
This ride’s a faithful replica of a 1968 show car that Hurst first assembled. There’s a ton going on here, but the vital stats show it’s got over 650 hp under the hood, and easily the most fascinating tires you’ll see all week. They’re not coated...they’re actually white rubber. Made specifically for this car by Hurst, they’re literally the only pair in existence. [More pics…
