1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396

Factory SS 396, 4 speed, fully restored.

If Darth Vader drove a car, it would be this black on black 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396. It’s sinister presence is undeniable, and it begs to be driven hard.

1969 was a very popular year for Chevrolet’s mid-size Chevelle, and for good reason. With its comfort, performance, and style, it blew away the competition. At the top of the range was the SS396 Sport Coupe. This 1969 Chevelle is a real Z-25 optioned SS396 built in the first week of June 1969. It’s fully restored with only a few tasteful modifications.

The interior of this Chevelle is perfect. One of the best we have seen on any Chevelle. The carpets, seats, upholstery, and dash are all in excellent condition. The 4 speed shifter feels great in your hand and the gauges are all clear and easy to read. There are a few additional aftermarket gauges mounted below the dash.

The exterior of [...]

1977 Chevrolet Corvette

L-82, 4 speed, t-top

This 1977 Corvette has been well looked after by the same family who has owned it since 1980. Despite the 18 inch Foose wheels, this car remains highly original. The drivetrain, body panels, and interior remain original to the car while there are a few tasteful modifications.

One of those improvements was an exterior restoration and new paint job, professionally done by us, Fort Pitt Classic Cars, within the last year at a cost of $16,000. The brand new paint is the same shade of black the car was originally and it looks stunning. Contrasting the deep black paint are new 18 inch Foose wheels wrapped in high performance summer tires.

The interior is also black and is mostly original except for new carpets and a new sound system with two additional speakers fitted in the trunk. This car also has power windows, AC, full instrumentation in the center stack, and air conditioning [...]

1996 Harley-Davidson FLSTN Heritage Nostalgia

A rare limited-edition Harley

One of 3,831. This1996 Harley-Davidson Heritage Nostalgia is finished in stunning Mystic Green/Platinum Silver two tone paint scheme. It also features a sissy bar and leather saddlebags. A Twin Cam 96B engine, Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) and 5 -speed Cruise Drive transmission move this beast.

To create the Nostalgia, Willie G. Davidson and Louie Netz blended the styling of the Heritage Classic with the Fat Boy and the Softail Custom and they also gave it a few new parts of it’s own. Starting with the Heritage Classic they added the Fat Boys Shot Gun Exhaust, but replaced the straight mufflers with fishtails. The leather seat had a grey insert added in the middle of the drivers and passengers seat along with the backrest. They also used the small style saddle bags from the fat boy with a grey insert added to the flap. Wide FLH Bars were also added, A special raised metal tank [...]

1971 Jaguar XJ6

A low mile survivor!

This 1971 Jaguar XJ6 4.2 short wheelbase is one of the finest Jaguars ever built. The XJ6 perfectly represents the Jaguar brand with style, class, luxury, and performance. The series 1 XJ was produced from 1968 to 1973 and is known by collectors as the most desirable generation of XJ as build quality decreased in the series 2 and 3.

This particular car has the venerable 4.2 liter straight six engine and Borg-Warner automatic transmission. This engine is both smooth and powerful. Far superior in refinement compared to other luxury cars at the time. Yet, they are easier to service and are more reliable than the optional 5.3 liter V-12.

The exterior of this Jag looks elegant finished in Old English White. The paint is in good condition and the chrome bumpers and trim look very good as well except for the usual pitting. Generally the condition of this car would be considered [...]

1956 Ford Thunderbird

2 seat Roadster, 312 V8, Factory 3 speed manual

Marketed as a “personal luxury car,” the first generation Thunderbird was Ford’s response to the sports car like Corvette. Unlike the Corvette, the T-Bird focused on creature comforts and 1950’s style and flair. This 1956 example is the second year for the Thunderbird. There were a few notable changes such as moving the spare tire to the rear bumper, side wind deflectors, and a 12 volt ignition system. This T-Bird was bought new in Pittsburgh and is only on its second owner.

The exterior of this T-Bird is in excellent condition. Having undergone a frame-off restoration 25 years ago, it still looks fresh. The paint looks great, having always been kept indoors and out of the rain. There are no signs anywhere of damage, dents, or scratches. The soft top is new, having been replaced 2 years ago, and there is a hard-top as well. However, the hard top needs painted.

The interior [...]

From its introduction in 1984, the C4 Corvette underwent continuous improvement until it was redesigned in 1996. This 1995 model is the second to last year of the C4s and is a vast improvement over the original C4 Corvette. Instead of the problematic crossfire V8 and Doug Nash 4+3 manual trans, this ‘95 Corvette has the highly praised LT1 V8 with a ZF 6 speed manual.

This is a one owner Corvette with only 69,000 miles on the odometer. It was very well cared for by a local Corvette collector. The outside of the car is white with a gold stripe and is in excellent condition. It was always garage kept and shows no signs of damage.

The interior is the original black leather. It’s in good condition despite a few wrinkles in the leather. The seats are 6 way, power adjustable, and very comfortable. All the gauges and instruments work as they [...]

1970 Pontiac GTO

A rare numbers matching convertible and an excellent driver.

This is a real ‘242’ code 1970 GTO, one of only 3,700 convertibles built in 1970. It’s an excellent driver quality car with a few small cosmetic blemishes, but overall a solid reliable GTO.

On the outside, it’s been repainted Pepper Green. There are a few scratches on the nose but it looks great from a distance. This GTO has a power convertible top that works flawlessly. The quarter panels are rust free, and the underside and inner fenders have been undercoated. There is no sign of rust or serious damage to the car.

The interior is in good condition except for a few faded trim pieces. The radio, tachometer, and air conditioning do not work. The green vinyl seats match the exterior of the car and gives a real 70’s vibe. The seats and carpets are in excellent condition.

Under the hood there is the numbers matching 400 cubic inch Pontiac [...]

When the second generation Corvette (C2) arrived, it was not only one of the most beautiful cars on the market, but the most advanced. The new Corvette had a strengthened chassis, wind tunnel tested aerodynamic body, rear independent suspension, and more powerful engines.

This 1964 Corvette Stingray Convertible only has 27,848 miles. There is no question it has been well cared for. It still has the factory hubcaps, interior, and trim. All of which are in good condition.

The exterior of this Stingray wears its original ‘Saddle Tan’ color and is believed to be original except for the hood and trunk lid that have been repainted. This gold color really allows you to appreciate the stunning body.

The matching Saddle Tan interior is a nice warm color. The seats, steering wheel, dash, and gauges all seem to be in excellent condition.  Everything in the interior works, including the newer stereo head unit [...]
