Revive - Repair - Restore

We bought this truck specifically for its engine and transaxle. It had a massive T-head, six-cylinder engine, so we yanked it out and stuffed it into our Marmon Wasp replica. Even without its original engine, this Brass era ladder truck is a great candidate for restoration. The chassis, suspension and bodywork is in great shape for its age, and we’ll even throw in the ladders for free!

If it’s muscle you want, then this classic Impala is a perfect candidate. With a healthy 350ci small block Chevy under the hood and a TH350 automatic transmission, it has lots of potential, whether you want a weekend cruiser or an everyday driver. It’s a great project car that needs a bit more body work to be ready for paint, but it's a great start to a fun project!

This 1934 Packard Coupe Roadster is a project car with great potential! This car needs metal work, mechanical work and interior work, but it's mostly complete and has a truck load of parts that comes with it! The body has been sprayed with epoxy primer to protect it from rust, and we cleaned up the original wire wheels and gave it a fresh set of BFGoodrich 7.50-17 whitewall tires. It needs a full restoration, but it would also make an awesome super sized hot rod roadster! Please inquire for pricing.

Alfa Romeo Spiders are collectible convertible cars with lots of cool sports car flavor. This one is ready for the road, and it's in great shape considering its age and originality. These cars feature a 1962cc four-cylinder engine that cranked out 120 horsepower. Disregard the dirt in the photos--this car will be professionally detailed soon, and new, more detailed photos will be added.

The Ford Taurus SHO is a special edition Taurus that came with special suspension, wheels, engine, transmission, interior and ground effects. These cars are continually getting more rare, and this one is a great example. It's been driven quite a bit but it's still in great running order. This car features the special Yamaha-built 3.0 liter V6 engine that makes 220 horsepower, backed by a five-speed manual transmission. The leather seats have quite a bit of wear, but have covers. Everything works on this car and it's ready for daily driving!

When someone looks up "solid California car", this is the picture that shows up in the dictionary. This '39 Ford sedan has been in dry California storage for MANY years, and it is completely rust free. The body does have some dents here and there, but no rust repair is needed. The original Flathead V8 and three-speed manual transmission are in place. This is a TRUE barn find, and has not been touched since it was purchased on the Backroad Gold TV show.

This one is just so ugly, it's cute! Nash Ramblers were semi-compact cars from the '50s and they had a bathtub shape that didn't really go over well with the public. However, the funky styling and rarity of these cars makes them pretty desirable today. This one is a '53 Nash Rambler Country Club two-door hardtop, and it's mostly solid aside from the floor pans. The original flathead six-cylinder engine is in place. This car does not run or drive, but it would make a great project for a restoration or a killer hot rod!

This thing is just plain cute! It's a very small two-seat roadster that almost has a cartoon look about it. The car is solid and has lots of potential for a very cool restoration project. These cars bring surprisingly big money when restored. The car has the original four-cylinder flathead engine, and doesn't need much to run. We just put a brand new set of BFGoodrich 5.00-15 bias ply whitewall tires on it, so that's one less thing to worry about! Get this little roadster, spend a few bucks to restore it and you will have a very fun and very valuable car!
