1969 Shelby GT500 Convertible 428 Cobra Jet Aug14

1969 Shelby GT500 Convertible 428 Cobra Jet

The 1969 Shelby looked very different from the 1969 Mustang with fiberglass fenders, hood, and rear cap which made the Shelby three inches longer than the already elongated 1969 Mustangs. The hood was fastened with five recessed NASA-type hood scoops. The leading edge of the hooded ended with a chrome strip that wrapped around the grille to meet the thin Shelby chrome bumper. A second chrome strip formed a wide mouth on the grille between the headlamps with Lucas driving lights mounted just below the bumper. The Shelby GT side stripes were wider, centered vertically, and ran the entire length of the car. The rear break body side air scoops were wider and mounted in the center for the convertible but higher...

’59 Buick LeSabre Convertible Jun07

’59 Buick LeSabre Convertible

When it comes to cars, nothing says “America” quite like fins and chrome and this pristine 1959 Buick LeSabre Convertible has both in spades. With some of the largest rear fins in any production car and with one of the meanest faces, the LeSabre is the up there with the finest of the Jet Age. This particular example comes in the incredibly rare combo of a convertible with a three-speed manual transmission (less than 2% of ’59 LeSabres came in this combination). The previous owners of this car were so obsessive that they actually tracked the mileage for every fill-up on the back of the license plate and that kind of incredible care extends to every nut, bolt and stitch of the car.

So Good, It’s On A Stamp Dec07

So Good, It’s On A Stamp

1953 Chevrolet Corvette ‘Noland Adams’ The 1953 Corvette was designed by the very talented Harley Earl, Chevrolet’s chief designer. GM listened to the demands of the GI’s that returned from Europe wanting an American sports car. Production was limited to only 300 units the first year so selling the entire production of the entirely new model was not a problem. The first Corvette reached the end of the assembly line on June 30, 1953. The first 53’ Corvettes were all built by hand, in the back of a customer delivery garage in Flint Michigan. Chevrolet made it clear the new Corvette would only be available to high profile executives and people of power and influence. An example is John Wayne...

1954 Jaguar XK120 SE Roadster Nov06

1954 Jaguar XK120 SE Roadster

The XK-120 was launched in roadster form at the 1948 London Motor Show as a test bed and show car for the new Jaguar XK engine. It caused a sensation, which persuaded Jaguar founder and design boss William Lyons to put it into production. The “120” in its name refers to its 120 mph to speed (faster with the windscreen removed), which made the XK-120 the world’s fastest standard production car at the time of its launch. The XK-120 has an extensive racing history including the high-speed runs at Jabeke in Belgium in 1949 and Ian Appleyard’s rally success with factory roadster NUB 120 in the early 1950’s. There was also an all XK-120 race in England in 1951 and XK-120’s competed in the U.S. well...
