Don’t fear, Ford fans: The Blue Oval is still on the list
The top trending cars on ClassicCars.com for the month of July were nearly all Chevrolets, but a few other makes were able to sneak on there.
Of the top 10 most-viewed individual cars, seven were manufactured by the bowtie. Ford followed with two on the list and Mercury was the other company that made the cut.
Check out the top cars from July below. However, keep in mind that some of these cars may have sold.
10) 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1
This beauty received a healthy amount of looks, and it’s no wonder as to why: The ’69 Mach 1 is always a popular model and this is one clean example.
The car has seen some road time — it has more than 90,000 miles on the odometer — but it has been completely restored, the seller says. The Aqua paint looks to be in great condition and the vinyl Mach 1 bucket seats appear excellent, as does the rest of the interior.
9) 1968 Chevrolet Camaro RS
What’s better than a ’68 Camaro RS? How about one that was cared for and upgraded by the original owner?
The odometer reads just 63,773 miles and the seller says the car has been lightly driven since it was redone about 10 years ago.
The GM Performance crate engine with aluminum heads, roller tip rockers, roller cam and a cold air induction kit makes 345 horsepower, according to the seller. At a sub-$35,000 price tag, this loaded Camaro seems like a steal.
8) 1972 Chevrolet Nova SS
This Yenko tribute is packing a 454cid big block under the hood that is paired with a 700 R4 transmission. It also has a 10-bolt rear and a dual exhaust.
The Red Metallic paint looks smooth, especially paired with the vinyl Yenko stripe, and the seller said the body is in good shape. It also has a decent amount of new parts, including the carpet, bumpers and tires.
7) 1965 Chevrolet Impala SS
The second one-owner car on the list, this Impala is a rust-free California Chevy. It’s a bone-stock 327 Super Sport, aside from brand-new 20-inch wheels. The seller still has the original SS wheels.
It has air conditioning — but needs a compressor — and just received a tune up and an upgraded radiator, the seller says.
6) 1949 Mercury sedan
Anyone up for a project? This $6,000 sedan has its original flathead V8 and 3-speed transmission and looks ready to be a lowrider.
The body has some dings but, when paired with the rear suicide doors, it could have a really unique look. It’s a task, but not an insanely tall one.
5) 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS
It seems the Super Sports were catching some eyes this month! This one underwent a complete, frame-off, rotisserie restoration, the seller says, and has 2-inch drop spindles in the front and a 9-inch Ford rear end.
It has a 427cid big block paired with a 4-speed Muncie manual transmission, with 18-inch wheels in the rear and 17-inchers in the front, and an upgraded sound system.
4) 1964 Chevrolet Impala
Apparently, the Impala was also popular as well among searchers. This ’64 has a 327 under the hood with a Power Glide transmission. Though it needs a bearing replacement and overhaul, the seller says, the engine has an Edelbrock 1406 Performance Series carburetor and a 2101 manifold.
The car has a little bit of surface rust and hasn’t run in five years. It’s been 17 years since it’s seen the road, but is ready for a restoration.
3) 1965 Ford Thunderbird
The origins of this T-bird are a little unclear, but it’s in Arizona now and looks to be in pretty good shape. However, the dash and wheel have cracked thanks to the brutal summer heat.
But it has a slew of new parts, the 390cid V8 has been freshened up and it’s certainly road-ready, the seller says.
2) 1968 Chevrolet Corvette
Considering how clean this Corvette is, it’s not surprising to see why it was so popular. It has essentially been redone inside and out, according to the seller. It was given a new engine in 2008 that has been driven about 1,000 miles since, but it retained the original 4-speed transmission and 4:11 geared rear end. The car was also painted the same year.
The keen-eyed Corvette lover will notice the nose of the car looks different. The owner said it was purchased with a partial 1970 nose and that was left in place.
1) 1967 Chevrolet Impala
This fastback was our top car of the month, despite it being a driver-quality vehicle rather than in No. 1 condition.
It has a rebuilt 350cid V8 only 32,000 miles on it, the seller claims, and will start up every time. The seller also said the body is in great shape and the car is ready for a full-on restoration.
