This is an exceptionally rare 1964 Studebaker R-2 Daytona Hardtop, which we spotted listed on ebay USA in August 2019. Much of tjhis wording heer comes directly from the original advertoisement. Fitted with a factory 289 cubic inch Paxton supercharged engine and full performance package. The package included: Heavy duty springs and shocks, power front disc brakes, 3.73 Twin Traction rear end, dual exhaust, rear radius rods, rear stabilizer bar, tachometer, 160 mph speedometer, front bucket seats
Up for sale is an excellent example of the popular but rare classic, the Chevy Cosworth Vega. The Cosworth Vega is a limited edition performance version of the Vega, and production totalled only 3,508 units between 1975 and 1976 - a year before the Vega would be discontinued altogether. The engine of the Cosworth Vega is where the car gains the Cosworth name, with a twin-cam fuel injected Cosworth engineered top end, producing 110hp. In addition to being a powerful unit, the engine is nearly 60 pounds lighter than the engine fitted to the standard production Vega. This makes for an excellent performance package.
This particular car is build number 1715, of 3,508. The car has been in storage for the last 8 years, and has been repainted in its original black acrylic. The body presents in excellent condition with no rust or panel damage. Black was the only colour available on these cars in 1975. This example has the optional cloth inserts applied to the seats (the standard trim was full-vinyl black). The car of course retains its individually numbered Cosworth Vega plaque on the dash, within the beautiful gold dashboard fascia.
The Cosworth Vegas have a large following in North America, and an impressive website has been setup to support enthusiasts at https://www.cosworthvega.com - we suggest you take a look at that site if you're genuinely interested in the car.

We spotted this GTS for sale on automart South Africa - and it appers to have th GTS flares, rear badge, yet 10 inch wheels. Something strange is going on with teh data plate where it appears to have a double print where the late GTS model code sits. It could be a modified 1275E - and the owner was not advertising it as a GTS. However, the 1144BA chassis number and the flares make us think it is. The 10 inch wheel would mean the disc brakes would have had to have been removed though... Anyone know the car and have any thoughts?
The 1275 E was South Africa's farewell Mini model built between 1980 and 1984, with this particular example coming from the penultimate year of mini production in the country. Approximately 7,500 1275 E Minis were built, featuring the well respected 1275cc engine, and by the 1980s had a number of refined features making it a very comfortable classic, and a great way to get into the classic mini scene. These cars are becoming rare, and are popular exports to markets such as Australia, the UK and NZ where they are considered very unique.
This particular example is in excellent condition, having undergone a major restoration. A number of images showing the restoration process are included in the image gallery. The 1275 E sits on 10 inch wheels, with custom stripes and excellent pale yellow paint. A custom dash, retro radio, integrated speakers in the dash (and under the seat) and a great trunk fitout make for a practical classic. The red carpet is like new.
The car's 1275cc engine has been fully refurbished. An electronic distributor has been fitted, as well as a temperature controlled fan sitting on the outside of the radiator. The wheels are fitted with 165/70R10 Khumo tyres with less than 200km usage.
All parts fitted to the car were imported from Mini Spares UK, with everything replaced where required. For more information or to arrange an inspection, please contact Ivan by logging in and clicking the "contact seller" button above.
The first example on our register, a genuine Keonig enhanced 500SEC twin turbo V8. It's the first time i've seen one advertised so thought it would be a good idea to keep a record of it on this register.
At the time this one was advertised, the seller noted the car was imported from Germany years ago, and had the following modifications done by Koenig Specials (KN):
– BBS Rims
– Twin Turbo
This 88 model was advertised on Ebay USA in July 2019. Reasonably high mileage (186,000), but like most old Mercs this doesn't really show and the car looks in good order. THe seller at the time noted the car was in excellent condition with no major issues, and drived well. One of a large number of 560SECs for sale in the USA - presumably the car's biggest market. They are a very affordable modern classic at the moment, but few of them are available with low mileage.
Spotted on Craigslist in July 2019, no chassis number recorded. Looks to be Laguna Blue Metallic - but that was a 1065 colour. If anyone has any history on this example please let us know. One of very few 66 Sports Sedan Daytonas built. See the others on the register below. At the time this car was advertised, the seller noted: I believe this car was last driven in the early 1990’s and sat in a barn from then till 2010. In 2010 until now it has sat in my garage. The car has 80,156 miles on it, but currently the car does not run or stop, but it rolls around easily.
Spotted on autoscout.com, there are quite anumber of the Gamma coupes advertised in Europe and very low prices (particularly compared with their asking prices in countries like the USA and Australia, where very few were sold. This is the first we've got on the register, located in Austria (2019). Looks complete and original, with a bit of tidying up needed. If you own one, please sign up and add yours to the register.
Spotted on Ebay USA in July 2019, looks good in Black, this S500 coupe was one of the last models badged as such before being re-named CL500 from later in 1996. The CL500/600 and S500/600 coupes from the 1990s are surely future classics, and available at great prices at the moment. Check out the others on the register - links below.
