Jag XJ6 with 502 V8 in it
A legendary race car, but also a Lancia and thus odd.
We’ve always wondered if a certain demographic might have a seemingly unusual interest in the Jaguar 420. This ad may just confirm that said demographic is indeed interested.
In truth, while it’s easy to make fun of this ad, we car people must admit a bit of jealousy torward the seller for having managed to accumulate these gems and we must pity him for selling. Could it be a spousal mandate?
“NOTE: The vehicles are not running and need restoration.” Did anyone really wonder?
Can all these things be combined into one amazing project? That sounds like a challenge…

Does anyone ever fully understand these group deals? There are some possibly nice buses here (they’re NOT Vanagons!), but the lacking images and details are a bit surprising, and one has to wonder how many people are interested in four buses.
Maybe it’s just a marketing idea to have one ad and sell individually. Still, we like to picture it the other way, with some buyer showing up – in another bus, of course – with four friends to help drive ’em all home.
Cool lineup shot!
Saved the best for last? This panel van is especially interesting and the ad reveals it’s where the time has been spent.
Was the yellow one the lest photogenic and they didn’t want to spend the extra $0.10 for a fifth image on eBay?

Here we have arguably the best Ford Maverick edition ever made. Everything is relative, of course. We at Oddimotive remember when Mavericks were just cheap, ugly used cars. Nowadays, they have retro appeal and, for some reason, don’t really look so ugly anymore. Times change.

At press: $1,395 with one bid and no reserve
03/25/2013 update: someone paid $1,635 for this bad boy
This one needs, at a minimum, some cosmetic help. The ad has no interior shots, which is cause for concern.
There’s the grabber hood.
Unfortunately, this one has an inline 6. We’re not sure how rare a V8 Grabber might be.
This was never meant to be such a T-Bird/Cougar-heavy site, but they just keep popping up in weird searches.

As of press time: $3,500 optimistic starting price with no bids
03/25/2013 update: Shockingly, this ended with no bids at the $3,500 opening price…
Lots through which to sort…
These don’t come up too often. Someone here at Oddimotive HQ has a strange bit of Volvo experience involving a yellow 1974 142 and will always have a soft spot for two-door bricks. At 159K miles, this thing is just getting warmed up, although it needs a lot cosmetically.

Groovy fog lamps were part of the GT trim level.
The interior had unique GT trim, as well.
Wheels were unique to the GT and we don’t remember the name. Most Volvo wheels have catchy names and most are interchangeable among 20+ years of cars.
2.1L, baby! That must have scared off the muscle car guys. Engine was the same as any other 240, as the Turbo hadn’t arrived yet. Suspension was upgraded, however.
Up for your consideration is a 1979 242GT coupe complete with original interior with factory wheels, factory AM/FM Volvo stereo, 6×9 Volvo speakers in rear deck with original radio booklet with fuse and owners manual with the plastic Volvo dealer card. The car was repainted a while back and the clear coat is coming off. The seats will need to recovered do to sun damage, the dash only has 2 cracks which are on each side of the cluster. Door panels, door pockets, ebrake console are in very good condition. Mileage is unknown since the odometer does not work at this time. Original spare tire with tool kit and jack are still in the trunk but, the air can is missing, the plugs are still in the wheel wells. The car had a tow hitch at one time and still has the wiring plug that was installed next to the lic. plate. The original GT rims, “V” center caps in fair condition with a set of real good tires are on the car. There is a small dent along the right rear quarter panel. The clear coat is coming off but the paint appears to look okay. The is a small piece of the plastic trim that goes around the driver side fog light that is damaged see close up pic of grill. Reg. is Jan. 2013. A/C works but has a leak so it need to be recharged.
I have tried to give as many details as I can about this car, it is also being offered locally so I reserve the right to end the auction early. The is sold “as is with all its faults”, remember you are bidding on a car that is 33 years old and so there may be some issues that I am not aware of. I do suggest that you inspect the car yourself or have someone inspect the at you expense. I will gladly make myself available to your mechanic to inspect the car. email me with your questions. Paypal deposit of $200.00 and balance due within 3 days after the auction has ended wired to my bank.
I will gladly ship world wide and will deliver the car to L.A. for $200.00 or you can pay to have it shipped yourself.

Manual trans is a huge bonus!
They’re a bit proud of this hood ornament.
1979 Mercedes Benz W123, hearse. Very RARE to come across a Mercedes hearse like this in North America, as most hearses used here are Cadillac. This one was used for an entire season of a television show, where they toured the U.S. in it.
There were a few repairs encountered while on the road during filming, so as a result, the car has had A LOT of money and work put into it to get it back to purring like a kitten! Among other things, the engine was completely re-built, and now has only about 2,000 miles on the new engine. Just put another $2,000 into it recently getting all the brakes completely redone. It runs great and looks amazing!! This car is definitely one-of-a-kind, and guaranteed to turn heads wherever you go!
It has dual fuel tanks and can run on either Diesel, Bio-Diesel or vegetable oil (WVO conversion). Body is in excellent condition, with new black paint job, red interior with red velvet curtains. The coolest part I think is the custom-cast, skeleton hand hood ornament that’s throwing horns!!
This would be great for a touring band, hearse club, musician, movie…..or for just any enthusiast who loves hearses!!
Asking $10k or best reasonable offer. No TRADES. Serious inquiries only please, don’t waste my time or yours. Thank You.
This ad pretty much says it all – the love child of Iaccoca and an Italian. Undeniably, is was the costliest K-car ever!
What was the result? Well, something that looked more-or-less like any other LeBaron, but with a T-Birdesque porthole top. I seem to recall these, like Cadillac Allantes, were flown over the Atlantic as part of their journey to showrooms and, ultimately, failure.
Yeah, okay, it was the best looking LeBaron, but still…
This thing did have extra leather heaped on in a rather gaudy fashion. Anyone who’s seem a Biturbo understands.
Just to make it weirder – how about some Mitsubishi power. I recall some of these had a turbo four and manual trans, but this ain’t one of ’em.
An aunt of one of us here at Oddimotive HQ once had one of these in yellow. This beige one is awfully close and reminds us of just how boring this body style was.
There a lot going on under the hood, but it’s amazingly clean.
LOOKS AND DRIVES GREAT
