An icon needs no introduction and the Jaguar E-Type, particularly if a first series, is no exception. Many have been produced and many have survived, especially if we compare them to other sports cars of the same era, yet the quantity of examples still existing has not inflated their charm: the value of this model… Read More Pasadena recluse: 1965 Jaguar E-Type O.T.S.
There are few cars, among those ever built, beautiful even if neglected and rusty. This is precisely the case with the E-Type roadster. In addition to being a spider (technically the name given by Jaguar for this version is OTS or Open Two Seater), this car is a true icon of world motoring along with… Read More Carmen red: 1966 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 O.T.S.
Anyone who has fully restored a classic car knows very well that an easy restoration does not exist, unless it is a car that already looks good and only needs general tuning and detailing. This is not, in fact, the case, indeed it takes many hours of work to bring this 356 back to the… Read More Drive the dolphin/2: 1960 Porsche 356b T5 Roadster
If we find a rare classic car, it is very likely that it will be published by us: let alone a car produced in a single specimen. In this particular case, as has often happened, the manufacturer and coachbuilder have different nationalities: the first is Jaguar, a brand that needs no introduction, the second is… Read More One off cat: 1952 Jaguar XK 120 Roadster by Beutler
If there is a difficult undertaking in the world of classic cars, this is finding a car produced after the Second World War up to the 80s in the so-called “communist bloc”, which is beautiful to look at: here is an exception. In fact, this does not surprise us: since the 1920s, the Czech Republic… Read More Eastern bloc roadster: 1959 Skoda 450
One of the best children of the Italian-American collaboration was certainly the Nash Healey, especially in the roadster version. As you can imagine, this is also a rare model as around 150 have been built (although we know how difficult it is to know the exact numbers, especially for smaller manufacturers), and far fewer… Read More Triple black: 1952 Nash-Healey Roadster by Pininfarina
“The Cobra in the Barn: Great Stories of Automotive Archeology” was a book published in 2005 by Tom Cotter, which met with moderate success among classic car enthusiasts: it would certainly have included this 300SL if it had been resurrected 15 years before. Seeing the photos of the ad surprised us: first of all because… Read More Vintage dust: 1960 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster
Actually we did not know exactly how to call this car: we know that – as the seller says – under the skin is the frame and engine of a Henry J. but we don’t know much else. Technically speaking, we do not know the year of manufacture of the chassis, nor the year in… Read More Time traveler: 1950 Kaiser Frazer Henry J. “Custom”
Take a 356 Speedster, add a slightly higher windshield, more comfortable seats and roll-up windows and you will get a Roadster. Among other things, the same formula is valid for two series of 356, the T2 and the T5: clearly in the T2 series the similarity is evident given that we are talking about the… Read More Baby blue: 1959 Porsche 356 Roadster by Drauz
The seller of this very rare car which, including us, few know, has been rather stingy in the description; consequently we will try to fill these gaps. The point is that it is not only this model that is rare (as it is produced in only 45 units), but the entire production of this mysterious… Read More 1 of 45: 1947 HRG Aerodynamic
