Best car and truck auctions
1. 1988 Jaguar XJ-S
With its long hood and large, sloping C-pillars, the XJ-S is one of Jaguar’s most popular models. This special XJ-S takes it to an even higher level. Carefully modified by the current owner as a replica of the special Tom Walkinshaw Racing package offered to UK customers among other goodies, it comes with commemorative badges, Speedline wheels, and a rare 5-speed manual transmission – perfect for squeezing the maximum power out of the car’s engine V12 burly.
2. 1994 Mitsubishi Galant Sports GT
In the United States, the Mitsubishi Galant was a sedan, but Japanese customers can choose the more interesting Galant Sports GT – and now you can too. A newly imported JDM Galant, it features all-wheel drive and a twin-turbo V6 engine that pumps out 215 horsepower. The rear lift design, large spoiler, roof rails, and brush guard give it a sporty, aggressive look far from any Galant sold in the United States.
3. 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL
The R107 SL certainly isn’t a rare car, but this bright red 560SL is well worth a look for anyone interested in a German two-seater roadster. She spent 30 years with one family (the original owner won her in a contest) before the seller took over in 2018. It has just 42,000 miles on the odometer, comes with a 5.5-liter V8, and Palomino brown leather with Signal Red paint job is an attractive package ( Even if this car uses good detailing).
4. 1959 GMC 100
Even if you’re sick of seeing Eisenhower-era cruisers in your local cars and a coffee, there’s no denying that 1950s cars have style—especially an honest, glass-soaked truck like the GMC 100. According to the listing, spot the seller at a farm and buy them right away. He was then commissioned to carry out an extensive mechanical update (including rebuilding the engine and transmission) but opted to leave the exoskeleton unrepaired. Results? A vintage truck in full swing, wearing 60 years of pride.
5. 1982 Volkswagen Rabbit Pickup
After 27 years in storage, this Rabbit pickup truck has only driven 12,000 miles and looks as good as it did the day it left the dealership. While the 1.6-liter diesel makes more noise than power, this well-kept engine for the minitruck features plenty of stylish extras, including fog lights, side stripes, sliding rear window, wooden bed rails, and hood trim OEM rare.
