Andy shares his exploration of the AutoHunter docket

His search reveals some under-the-radar but fun-to-drive gems

-

Like the rest of the collector car market, the activity on AutoHunter has increased quite a bit and we have seen a great number of collector cars on the site each day, with the cars often selling for quite strong money. 

Since I tend toward looking for the few bargains in the market, coming up with a list of cars from the AutoHunter site becomes a bit more challenging as is seems that just about every collector car has increased in value of late. 

Despite this, I have a short list of cars that might be just enough under the radar that they could end up providing a good deal. In addition, I am including a car or two that are just cool despite their high values.

Here are this week’s picks:

1999 Chevrolet Corvette 6-speed coupe

The C5 Corvette is possibly the very best value in the world for a V8-powered sports car. Happily, this example is equipped with a 6-speed manual and has covered a total of only 47,000 miles from new. 

These cars are fast, reliable, comfortable, and a lot of fun. The Corvette community is one of the strongest in the sports car world and this C5 Corvette offers a lot of fun per dollar.

1966 Ford Mustang convertible

There are few if any classic American cars that are easier to own and maintain than a classic Mustang. This one is equipped with a 289cid V8 and an automatic transmission. 

The seller offering the car states that it is painted in Arcadian Blue with a blue interior and was converted from a front bench seat to much more comfortable and better-looking buckets. 

Additional work over the years includes a new convertible top and seat upholstery in 2007. Other upgrades include power steering, power brakes, and the car received new wheels in 2010 and new tires in 2021.

1982 Porsche 928

The 928 is one of my all-time favorite Porsche GT cars and this one ticks all the boxes for me. It is a 5-speed manual gearbox-equipped car that has been driven only 44,000 miles since new. 

And, it is finished in the classic combination Guards Red over a black leather interior. 

Like any 928, it is important to get some idea of what recent services have been done before clicking the bid button, but if this car checks out it would make for a perfect cross-country GT car.

1991 Audi V8 quattro

I honestly love these early V8 Audis and they are quite difficult to find in decent condition as most seem to have been driven into the ground and left to die. 

This car is not without issues but is one of the cleanest ones I have seen for sale in years. 

It is a perfect car for a Radwood event.  This Audi is also pretty fast with the 3.6-liter V8 offering 247 horsepower and 251 pounds-feet of torque, meaning it has plenty of performance even in today’s world.

And those are just my favorites on the AutoHunter site this weekend. There’s more to see on the online collector car auction site driven by ClassicCars.com
