Each week ClassicCars.com Journal editors take turns sharing the vehicles that catch their eye on the online auction platform AutoHunter. This week, it’s my turn.
While combing through the current docket, I noticed a few first-generation classics, all of which I’d like to drive into my garage.
This custom first-generation Camaro finished in a beautiful blue metallic paint blends classic muscle car styling with modern conveniences.
The rust-free and straight body, as noted by the seller, wears a black and power-operated convertible top, SS logos on the grille and rear deck, a flush-mounted trunk lip spoiler, and bright trim with bumper guards.
Inside, the Camaro has been given new bolstered leather bucket seats with blue SS branding in the backrests, blue Matrix safety harnesses, a wood-rimmed steering wheel, and a radio.
Under the hood sits a fuel-injected crate 350cid V8 paired with an automatic transmission, and with a Ford 9-inch differential at the rear.
This sharp GTO, a first-year example, is the recipient of a comprehensive restoration and is documented by the Pontiac Historical Services.
The body is finished in a beautiful deep red paint with a power-operated white top and features the signature Pontiac split grille with chrome bumpers and dual headlights.
When you put down the top, a well-maintained black interior is revealed with bucket seats, a full-length center console, and an original style AM radio.
Power comes from a 348-horsepower 389cid Tri-Power V8 linked to a 4-speed transmission.
My eyes are always drawn to a red and white stripe paint scheme, especially one as nice as this Mustang’s, the recipient of a highly documented 5-year restoration.
The body also wears fender-mounted 289 badging, fog lamps and sail-panel louvers.
During the restoration, the interior was reupholstered in two-tone white and red vinyl and equipped with buckets seats up front and a Sport Deck folding bench in the rears Amenities include a center console with bright accent trim and a radio with Boss speakers in the rear cargo area.
The seller notes the Mustang was originally fitted with an inline-6 engine that was replaced with a 289cid V8 linked to a replacement 4-speed manual transmission.
