Arizona Auction Week isn’t the only place to do your bidding


Arizona Auction Week kicks off this weekend, but don’t overlook the many cars available on the AutoHunter auction website driven by ClassicCars.com. 

And don’t forget, if you can’t make it the desert southwest to cast a bid, AutoHunter might have that car you are looking for — and you don’t even need to get on an airplane or book a hotel room to see them.

Our selections this week include a variety of collector cars that I find to be very interesting, interesting enough that I’d like to own:

1973 Volkswagen Type 4

The VW Type 4 was a failed attempt by the company to compete with the imports coming to the US from Japan. As a result, you rarely see a Type 4 these days and almost never one as nice as this one looks to be. 

If you are looking to have something different at a car show or to be a shoe in for an award at a VW show, you might consider bidding on this excellent example of one of VWs mistakes.

1966 Ford Mustang convertible

This Springtime Yellow Ford Mustang convertible is a very nice-looking example of what has to be one of the easiest to own first-time classic cars I can think of. 

This example happily has a 289cid V8 with a 4-barrel carb, which means it actually has enough power to take on a weekend drive in  the country as well as to effortlessly deal with interstate speeds, making it a car you can also drive cross country for a classic car adventure. 

You always buy a bargain basement Mustang with some needs for less than this will sell for, but this car seems to need nothing except to be filled up with gas and driven.

1987 Jaguar XJ6

The series-3 Jaguar XJ6 is probably the best classic Jaguar car sedan to own due to the increase in build quality and the more modern updates that the final classic XJ6 incorporated. This are simply wonderful cars and offer all the Britishness that you can want, with Connolly Leather in the classic color of Biscuit and it even has Jaguar Racing Green paint. 

If this is an original-paint car, even better. I would buy a series-3 XJ6 in a minute, and finding one as clean as this one is getting harder and harder to do.

And there are more to see
on the AutoHunter website.
