Gary Lynn Stahl Classic Car & Parts No Reserve Estate Auction – May 27th, 2017

2009 Solstice GXP Coupe

2009 Solstice GXP Coupe

Pontiac fans won’t want to miss this all No Reserve Beachcomber Estate Auction in New Haven, IN on May 27, 2017 including several classic cars, parts, tools, wheels and tires.  Three collectible Pontiac automobiles will sell to the highest registered bidder including a 1947 Pontiac Streamliner, a 1976 Pontiac Trans Am, and a extremely rare 2009 Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe. 

There is a lot of talk these days about what modern cars will become collectibles, and the ’09 Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe hits all the right notes beginning with the unfortunate demise of the Pontiac Brand in 2010.  The Solstice coupe would only be offered to the public one year, and with astoundingly low production numbers of just 1,152 coupes (956 built for USA) of which just 781 were GXP models according to solsticeforum.com report on “Sequential VIN Solstice Coupes.” 

With a base price of $30,995 USD, the GXP Solstice was a unique sports car that offered surprising speed for a 2.0L/260-hp DOHC turbo charged engine.  Being capable of slingshotting the driver from 0-60 mph in just 5.4 seconds is impressive enough, but it turned out this little hot-rod was nimble in the corners as well.  If that hasn’t tripped your trigger yet, this rare find has less than 5,000 miles on her! *Please note, Solstice is sold with stock 5 spoke wheels not pictured.

Hoosier Classic Collector Car Auction – Nov. 26th, 2016 – Kokomo, IN

dscn0968

Classic car enthusiast had a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, when Brent Earlywine of Earlywine Auctions brought a well received classic car auction to Kokomo, Indiana in benefit of the Kokomo Automotive Museum.  Earlywine’s Hoosier Classic Collector Car Auction was held at the Kokomo Event & Conference Center, just adjacent to the museum which was open for attendees to enjoy. 

A large and enthusiastic crowd, made for an exciting auction and we were impressed with the variety of cars at this event including the expected Bel Airs, Camaro’s and Mustangs but also several classics you don’t see everyday like a 1932 Chrysler Imperial RS and a 1938 Cadillac Lasalle Series 50. 

I was quite partial to a 1957 Pontiac Star Chief convertible, dressed in Tartan Red with a white top.  She sported a 347 cid 290 hp tri-power V-8 and an automatic transmission.  With power steering and power brakes theres no doubt she would make for a pretty comfortable and classy cruiser. 

Another head turner that caught our eye was the 1966 Austin Healey Sebring Replica, outfitted with a 350 V-8.  It was custom built with all the modern upgrades including Wilwood power brakes, coil-over front shocks, rear air bags, and sporty 17” aluminum American racing wheels.  Ready for a cruise or a flaunt at the race track, this is a roadster that is going to attract attention wherever it goes. 

The auction, which offered just under 100 classic cars had all the niceties you might expect at a large scale auction house including a great selection of vehicles, automotive memorabilia, neons, lively ringman, concessions and a bar for those who didn’t get there fill at Thanksgiving dinner.  All the automobiles were under roof, which is quickly becoming a standard in the classic car auction business, and of which was much appreciated as the weather is a bit chilly in Indiana come late November.

We were impressed with Earlywine Auctions Hoosier Classic, and look forward to seeing it grow in years to come.  Check out Earlywine Auctions website at www.earlywineauctions.com and if you see something you like from there recent auction inventory give them a call at: 765-438-6041.  Stay tuned in to Chrome Runners for our next blog covering the Kokomo Automotive Museum and the Haynes Automobile Company.

5 Steps To Reduce Your Risk Of Being Scammed When Buying A Classic Car

img_6911

Buying a classic car can be an enjoyable and exhilarating experience but you don’t want all that positive energy to end up costing you big bucks at the end of the day.  There are lots of venues to purchase classic cars, from live and online auctions, classified ads, swap meets, or maybe even your neighbor.  A few key steps in your process could save you a lot of time and money. 

  1. Know Who Actually Owns The Car – If you are buying a car at a dealership or auction, they will do the required title research before offering the classic for sale, but its a good practice to get a copy of the title when you purchase the vehicle.  Should you find the classic car you want at a car corral, swap meet or the like its imperative that you review the vehicles title before getting money involved.  With the exception of buying from a dealer at his licensed location, you should never purchase a car from someone who’s name is not on the front of the title (Some states such as AL & NY, use state registrations instead of titles for antique vehicles).  If the individual purchased the car from someone else and did not register it before trying to sell it, this is an illegal act called jumping the chain of title.  Each owner must register and pay the sales tax on a vehicle before selling it to another party. If the title is correct, make sure to take a picture or get a copy of the sellers driver’s license and confirm his or her contact information before finalizing payment. If more than one party is listed on the title, law requires signatures from all parties with legal rights to the automobile to complete the sale. 
  2. Double Check The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Matches The Title – Once you have the title in hand, confirm that the VIN on the title matches the car being offered for sale.  If there is a discrepancy in the VIN, even by one digit, do not pay for the vehicle until the seller has resolved the issue within the state the vehicle is currently registered.  VIN discrepancies are often simple mistakes, but taking a vehicle out of state and trying register it with a vin discrepancy can become a daunting task.
  3. Look For Signs of VIN Tampering – VIN tampering is defined as someone whom knowingly removes, obliterates, tampers with or alters an identification number for a motor vehicle.  VIN’s can be a little tricky, especially when it comes to classic cars because there were little or no standards for years.  If you are not very knowledgeable about classic car VIN’s we suggest you consider having a professional inspect the vehicle for you. VIN tags are generally attached by rivets, so if you see screws holding the tag in be weary but keep in mind its not necessarily incorrect either. If the VIN tag is located on a easily removable object like a door, understand that it is not legally identifiable VIN.  You will need to find the “Hidden VIN” which may be a little tricky to find depending on the year, make and model.  A quick search online for the vehicle you are looking at can give you a lot of information.  If in doubt, contact a professional. 
  4. Confirm If The Vehicle is Matching Numbers & Other Claims By The Seller – A matching numbers vehicle means that the vehicle you are considering has maintained at least the original engine, and possibly other original parts.  If you are paying a premium for a matching numbers vehicle or based on other seller claims, make sure to get all claims in writing and confirm the numbers yourself.  Classic car enthusiast often have differing views on what constitutes matching numbers, so make sure you understand what the seller means when its claimed.  Auctions often consider just the engine to take precedent, while others believe a true matching numbers car should include the transmission and or other parts.  Generally the VIN or partial VIN will match the engine number stamp on the block, but some manufacturers such as Pontiac used engine code stamps as late as 1967 which makes it very difficult to know for certain that the engine in the engine bay was born in that particular car.  Our best advice is do your research ahead of time, or hire a professional.
  5. Understanding Restoration Levels – Car sellers often throw around words like full restoration, frame off or rotisserie restoration and these terms have very different meanings.  We won’t go into all the definitions in this article, but we will tell you to simply make sure you have a very clear view of what has actually been restored.  A ground up restoration, at its best will not give you a #1 Car, and should not be valued that way.  Classic car values can vary widely due to vehicle condition, so understanding the quality and condition of your car is of the utmost importance before signing the purchase agreement.    

Don’t let buying a classic scare you, most transactions are completed with no trouble at all, but do finish your homework.  There are literally classic car online forums for every year, make and model out there and they can be a great resource.  When in doubt hire a professional, their nominal fee could save you big down the road and give you more assurance in your purchase.

A Pilgrimage To Hershey & 60+ Years of Classic Cars

hershey_aaca_2016

Imagine for a moment that its 1955.  Dwight D Eisenhower is president, just a decade ago World War II had come to a close, the average wage is $3,851 per year, and the government is now requiring seat belts to be installed in automobiles.  “Doo-wop” and “Rock N’ Roll” are all the rage, but it will still be another few years before the states hear the first melodic tunes of the Beach Boys, and another decade before there first mainstream hit “Good Vibrations” hits the air-waves.

It was during this early golden age of America that Jim Ladd, and a small group of car enthusiast decided to petition the Antique Automobile Club of America to organize a AACA Hershey Regional Chapter.  In that year Mr. Ladd and his small group of car nuts were able to gather 400 cars to register to be judged at show for what would come to be known simply as Hershey.  Rain the first year caused 100 cars to cancel, but for the time 300 cars on deck was still an impressive gathering of classic automobiles, considering there was no internet or social media to help spread the word, and long distance phone calls were still mostly made through a intermediate operator. 

Each succeeding year from 1955 the Hershey event has grown in size and scale.  Free admission, and adding a swap meet and vendors early on likely helped to intrigue spectators from far and wide.  In 1965, just a decade after the first show, 35,000 gear heads would descend to Hershey to view over a thousand classic automobiles on display.  The annual pilgrimage for car lovers to Hershey has attracted the young, the old, and everyone in between, not just for the cars but for the love of the classic car culture and the desire to pass that appreciation to the next generation.   

Today the Hershey AACA Fall Meet is held at the Hersheypark Giant Center the first week of October, and attracts a quarter of a million people from all over the world to see rare and unique automobiles, search for hard to find parts, and experience a living open automotive museum of sorts.  What took just a few dozen people to operate in 1955, has now swelled to around 75 committees and 750 volunteers to bring the event activities together. 

From first light, and until the sun goes down car lovers comb the rows of the swap meet, searching for treasures, talking shop with the good old boys, and admiring the beauty of brass and classic era automobiles of all sizes and conditions.  From highly restored classics, to original barn finds, and rusty old replacement fenders, expect to find a little bit of everything in Hershey, a little slice of heaven for auto aficionados. 

If you plan to make the pilgrimage to Hershey(Oct. 5-8, 2016), Chrome Runners recommends planning in advance so that you may arrange reservations to stay at the Hershey Lodge.  Its convenient location, and comfortable accommodations make it a great and unique place to set up your base camp, and it is also the location in 2016 where the evening RM Collector Car Auction will be held October 6-7.  Don’t forget your checkbook though, last years bidding netted the auction house more than 16 million in sales.

Cruisin’ the Coast Celebrates 20 Years of Cruisin’

ctc-cruisers

Fall is here, a sign to classic car enthusiast from the south, that Cruisin the Coast is upon us, and this year marks the 20th Anniversary of Mississippi’s largest special event.  Located over 30 miles of beachfront highway in Southern Mississippi CTC has become one of the largest open classic car events in the country.  In 1996 Woody Bailey, Vice Chairman and Executive Director of CTC, began rounding up all his classic car friends and local clubs for CTC’s inaugural event.  After 374 cars registered that first year, Woody recognized he was on to something.  In just a few years, participation had swelled to several thousand cars, and in 2015 CTC registered well over 7,600 vehicles for what is recognized as “America’s Largest Block Party.”

Today, at almost any car event in the US, it is common to see a CTC t-shirt proudly worn by a classic car guy or gal that has cruised the Biloxi coastline in their classic.  It’s really no surprise when you consider the numbers.  In the last two decades, CTC has attracted participants from 41 U.S. states, Canada and Sweden.  Keep in mind these are just those patrons whom registered for the cruise, with many thousands more attending from every corner of the nation to enjoy the events CTC offers including live bands, thousands of classic cars to see, Vicari Classic & Muscle Car Auction, Swap Meet, Cruise-Ins, and Car Corral and much more. 

The unique draw to CTC for many is its scenic open beach highways, and southern charm.  Miles of coastline with unobstructed views are something we see less and less of today, and cruising Highway 90 along the Mississippi Gulf Coast in a classic gives you the feeling you are in a time warp.  As a patron of CTC myself, people would often ask me what it was like to be there.  The joke I always tell is that its the only place in the country where people take there chairs to the beach and point them to look at the highway instead of the ocean.  But this is really no joke, its the truth!  Classic and muscle cars fill the streets, and attendees and locals claim their spots early in the week to make sure they have a prime base for BBQ’ing, and having access to their favorite events.

The 2016 CTC event gets rolling on Sunday October 2nd with a cruise-in at the Hardy Court Shopping Center in Gulfport at 11:00 AM, and with CTC registration beginning the following Monday at Cruise Central, Centennial Plaza in Gulfport.  Even with the many hotels, and casinos in the area, it can be difficult to get a hotel room without planning ahead, but if your in a pinch and need of a room, try calling MS Gulf Coast Hotel Reservations at 1-888-388-1006.

If you are looking to purchase a classic car at CTC, we suggest you stop into the Vicari Classic Car Auction at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum & Convention Center.  The 3-day auction (Oct 6-8) is all indoors, and hosts a variety of classics at all price points for seasoned collectors and first time buyers.   If you have never participated in a classic car auction, check out a recent Chrome Runners blog article, “Should I Buy A Classic Car From An Auction.” Crusin’ The Coast wraps up on October 9th, with lots of fantastic events in-between.  Check out the full schedule, and learn more about this must attend event on the CTC website.

1931 Ford Model A Woody Wagon | Chrome Runners Online Auctions

1931-ford-model-a-woody-wagon

From 1908 to 1927 Ford’s champion was the Model T.  Henry Ford’s assembly line made it possible for the Ford Motor Company to produce more than 15 million units from 1908 to 1927 bringing the personal automobile to the masses in America.  The Ford Model A, built from 1928 -1931, succeeded the Model T and was Ford’s answer to growing competition. 

Available in a variety of styles the Model A was well received by the public whose taste were beginning to become more refined.  The model A offered electric start, standardized driver controls with a conventional clutch, brake pedals, throttle and gearshift, and was the the first car to have safety glass in the windshield.  The engine bay housed a 200 cubic inch water-cooled 4-cylinder engine that produced 40 hp and could reach speeds of 65 mph. 

This original 1931 Model A Woody Station Wagon represents a extremely rare opportunity to own a piece of history.  While Ford was retooling its Murray body plant for the new 1932 body, they sent approximately 1005 A’s to the Baker-Raulangs Body Company in Cleveland, OH and this is one of those original A’s.  This example is loaded with factory accessories including a Moto-meter radiator, dual side mounts with stainless bands, dual rear view mirrors, and a vacuum windshield wiper.  The 4 cylinder engine is paired with a 2-speed overdrive unit capable of speeds of 55-60 mph, and offers electric start with power supplied by a 6-volt alternator. 

The new owner of this particular vehicle will be very happy with their purchase.  This Model A Woody has seen a thorough restoration in its past that has held up very well.  The paint is in very good condition, although we noticed some minor paint chips along the hinge of the bonnet.  Inside this time capsule you get the feeling that this car has been driven very little since it was restored last, and we wouldn’t be surprised if it had been stored in a collection or museum in its recent past.  The accessories and chrome have a excellent luster, and the engine starts right up like it should. Bid with no worries here, this is a fantastic Model A.

1955 Chevrolet 3100 Cameo Pickup | Chrome Runners Online Auctions

1955-chevy-cameo-0001

Prior to 1954 a pickup was purchased out of practicality, or with good work sense in mind.  That all changed with the introduction of the 1955 model Chevrolet Cameo Pickup.  Its styling resembled its cousin the Bel Air and featured a forward looking sporty stance, slick stylish body lines, a luxurious cab, wrap-around windshield, panoramic rear glass, fiberglass fenders and tailgate. 

The half-ton 3100 pickup was built on the 3000 Series chassis with a 114” wheelbase and came with a optional 265 cid V-8, with a multitude of transmission options to get the job done right, and with style.  5,220 Cameo pickups would role off the production line for the 1955 model year, from 5 assembly plants spanning from California to New York.  The popularity of the 55 Chevy Cameo birthed a new generation of car-like styled pickups by auto manufacturers including the Big 3, and well known models such as the Chevrolet El Camino and the Ford Ranchero in the near future. 

Just 146 miles from a frame off restoration, its hard to pick away at anything on this like-new classic pickup.  The paint and interior are described as excellent, and with a matching clean undercarriage.  A Mustang II Front end houses the 327 cid V-8, and automatic transmission.  Vintage A/C has been installed for comfort, and the owner also opted for power steering and disc brakes.  All the chrome has been refinished, as well as the the interior instruments.  Given the continued popularity of the American Pickup, this ’55 Cameo looks to be a good and fun investment for years to come.

1961 Ford Thunderbird Convertible | Chrome Runners Online Auctions

1961-thunderbird-0001

Feeling the heat from Chevrolet’s popular Corvette, Ford delivered its fierce competitor the T-Bird in 1954 as a 1955 model. While the T-Bird may not have been the first, hot little roadster out of the stable, Ford had its act together delivering the sporty ride stock with a 292 cubic inch OHV V-8, and a 4 barrel carburetor producing just under 200 hp. The all steel body, had slick lines, a stylish egg-crate grill, a hood scoop, and a sporty interior with a speedometer that went up to 150 mph. The popularity of this car caught even Ford by surprise, and it quickly outsold the Corvette many times over in its first offering.

1961 brought the 3rd generation Thunderbird, known as the “Bullet-Bird.” Building upon the design evolution of the 2nd generation the ’61 Thunderbird increased in length out to 205 inches, was wider, and sat lower. Similar to its earlier siblings was the decorative hood scoop, rocket-styled taillights, and V-8 power plant. The new Thunderbird was the first of its lineage to be built with a unibody structure, complete with A-arms and coil springs in the front and leaf springs in the back. Power came from a 300 hp 390 cubic inch V-8, tied to a 3-speed automatic transmission, and a solid axle rear. Following suit with the space age exterior styling, the driver is greeted inside the cockpit by a wrap-around heavily decorated dash with flashy chrome gauges. The bucket seats are separated by a console, and like the 2nd generation model, Bullet-Birds came equipped with a back seat for two additional passengers.

This Thunderbird Convertible is a nice example of a clean classic. The owner believes the body panels to be original and straight, with very presentable paint and good chrome. The engine bay is clean, and houses the 390 cid 300 hp V8, complimented by the 3-speed automatic transmission. Equipped with power brakes and power steering this beauty is ready for cruising in comfort and style. The white convertible top is brand new, and described as going up and down with no problems, as well as the electronic power windows. Inside, the welcoming interior is dressed in white, with a tan and chrome accented dash. The owner describes the interior as clean, but notes that it would benefit from a refreshening in the near future. If you are looking for a comfortable, sporty cruiser for a night out with you sweetheart, this might be your ride.
