Antique Automobile Descriptions

The classic cars being offered are in various stages of restoration. The 1931 Model A Ford is an 8-year-old restoration and is quite a good-looking car. The original engine runs just fine. The seats are leather and the car even has a fold out rumble seat. The is a classic you WILL want to bid on.

The 1950 Ford four door is another car that has become a true classic. This car is an older restoration with the original flat head 8-cylinder engine. The interior has velour seats.

The 1946 Packard is a true collectors item. This too is an older restoration and has recently been repainted. In its day, the post war Packards cost more than a new Cadillac and were a true sign of luxurious living.

The final car is a non-running Mercedes four-door sedan. Most of the trim and windows have been removed and the car is in poor condition.
