The Most Patriotic Cars For Sale On eBay Motors, July 4th Edition

“I wanted a car that a young couple could afford to buy, but would enjoy getting’ out in.”—Carroll Shelby

Nothing but the very best American cars on eBay Motors this week…

1969 Camaro SS
What do you do when you have a gorgeous ‘69 Camaro and an open checkbook? You build a goddamn beast, of course. This car was built as a Pro Tourer; in other words, it’s fast and luxurious. The 675 hp is plenty, thanks to a modern Corvette’s LS7 motor that’s been tweaked. The chassis has been heavily revised to fit the larger tires and improve the original car’s suspension geometry, so it’ll handle better than almost anything else from the ‘60s. Inside, it’s a sea of leather and stereo components. Just take a look. [More pics…]

1971 Bronco
This one just looks fun. The owner took a good condition Bronco, tore it to the frame, and rebuilt it with a host of brand-new parts. The new suspension raises the truck by nearly three inches for extra off-roading fun, while a brand-new 5.0L V8’s sitting under the hood. [More pics…]

1971 Firebird Trans Am
If you’ve ever had even the slightest desire to play “Dazed and Confused: The Home Game”, this is your car. It’s fresh off of an exceedingly thorough restoration, and the 455 cid engine’s got more than enough grunt to give your neck muscles a thorough workout. [More pics...]

1965 Corvette Convertible
A couple of years ago, this Corvette was fully restored, and it’s been sitting in a garage ever since. It gets a nice polish/wax once a month, and heads to car shows. (We should be so lucky.) It’s stunning, it’s perfect, and if it doesn’t make you feel a little funny (in a good way), you probably think of July 4th as “that noisy American holiday.” [More pics…]

1957 Thunderbird
There’s quite possibly no more classic American cruiser than the 1955-’57 Thunderbirds. This ‘57 has pretty much everything you’d want: awesome-but-not-outrageous 1950s standards tail fins, white wall tires, curved windshield, and of course, the giant V8 stashed under the hood. [More pics…]

1957 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham
The Eldorado Brougham was probably the most ahead-of-its-time car Cadillac has ever built. In the ‘50s, it had memory seats to go with its power locks. The brushed stainless steel roof is stunning, and the pillarless suicide doors in back are the result of some impressive engineering. The front bumper’s protrusions were called Dagmars after a noted actress of the time who, um…had a nice set of protrusions. [More pics…]

1968 Shelby GT 500 KR Convertible
No matter what, you don’t get more classic American muscle than a Shelby GT 500. This car has been owned by a few collectors in the Houston area over the past 15 years and comes with great stories, like being propositioned by a woman in a toll booth: “beware if you buy this KR Convertible...you may have ladies trying to get in the car with you.” Yeah, Shelbys will do that. [More pics…]
