1963 Ford Falcon Sprint convertibleSold AT $26,460
S/N 3H15P236280. Blue and white over blue. 260-cubic-inch V-8, four-speed floor-shift manual. Bucket seats. Aftermarket sound system with a CD player and satellite radio. The paintwork is only fair, and some of the chrome is dull. This car appears to have spent quite a bit of time at the beach.
If this car looks like an escapee from Margaritaville, it could be because its last owner was Jimmy Buffett. Cosmetic needs aside, it was a very good buy. The celebrity ownership came at a small price. Falcon Sprints have been attracting interest recently, so this price will seem cheap very soon.
1969 American Motors AMXSold AT $48,600
S/N A9C397X287302. Green and black over tan. 390-cubic-inch V-8, automatic. Expertly detailed throughout. The dashboard plaque says this is AMX 14923, but AMX owners don't rely on these numbers, because some plaques have been changed out. Space-saver spare. Close to new throughout.
This is one very well-equipped AMX. It was built in an era when many of its stablemates had far less equipment. As orphan cars (American Motors was absorbed by Chrysler), AMXs have had a tougher road to travel than muscle cars from GM, Chrysler, and Ford. This is not the most expensive AMX ever sold, but most of them currently change hands for between $15,000 and $20,000 less. Condition and equipment made the difference here.
1932 Austin American roadsterSold AT $23,760
S/N AUSB1053032. Black and red over red. No top. The paint, although good, is slightly faded and has quite a few chips. The chrome needs work. The interior vinyl is old and not particularly sharp, but the metal dashboard is good. The gauges need to be restored.
Austin Americans were built from 1930 to 1940 in Butler, Pennsylvania. The basic design is from the British Austin cars, but it was extensively modified for the American market. The price today, however, was not low. This car needs a full restoration if it's going to look great again.
