1980 Datsun 280ZX

1982 Land Rover Series III

Not into trucks at all, but there’s something about this Land Rover that is pulling me, maybe because it looks like nothing from our side of the pond. Indeed, it was built under license by a Spanish company and features a 2.25-liter diesel four. Click here to view this listing.

1980 Toyota FJ Cruiser

Here’s a vehicle in a similar vein, though a Toyota built under license from a Philippine company. Even more interesting, it was restored in Columbia before being brought to our shores last year. This should be a nice pick for fans of covert CIA operations or narco TV miniseries. Click here to view this listing.

1974 Dodge Charger SE

Triple black with 440 power, there’s a lot to like about this B-body aside from the fact the 1971-72s are sportier. This was the time when Charger was evolving into more of a personal-luxury car, so if you would enjoy an effortless highway cruiser with remnants of the muscle era, this Charger may be your jam.

1990 Shelby Cobra Replica

I don’t lust after a Cobra, but I know if I drove one, I would have a perma-grin that would require a surgeon to fix. Most of the big-block Cobras featured a 427, but this one is powered by a 428 Cobra Jet, which is in the same engine series so it fakes it nicely. Click here to view this listing.

1968 Ford Mustang GT

Mustangs are everywhere but, when you hone in on equipment, some can end up being pretty unique. In this car’s case, it has a bench seat with a four-speed, which is quite unusual. Though the 302 is no powerhouse, it is backed by a four-barrel, so the fun quotient is there. One of the more unique Mustangs you’ll find.  Click here to view this listing.
