I set out on a mission this morning to see if I could find a few clean classic cars from a single year on eBay Motors. I’m not sure why I picked 1970, but I made things rather easy for myself when I did. Boy, were there a lot of great cars to choose from. The hard part was having to narrow my finds down to just five cars, ironically.
I wanted to start off this eBay list with something a little different than the rest. If you go to a classic car show and wander to the back, where they tend to hide all the pickups, you’re usually staring at a sea of C-10 and F-100 trucks. How often is it you see a 3/4 ton 4×4 long bed sitting high above the dropped and raked Fords and Chevys? Hardly ever – that’s how often.
This 1970 Chevrolet C/K20 deserved some special recognition, especially with how well it has been maintained as a one owner truck. It’s been repainted, but in its original olive green color, and, thanks to living an indoor life in mild California weather, its overall condition looks to be excellent.
I ordinarily don’t like highlighting cars being sold by dealers on eBay, because free publicity and all that, but the Grabber Blue on this 1970 Boss Mustang 302 took ahold of and forced me into sharing. It’s bright and beautiful.
The unfortunate thing about this car is that the numbers aren’t matching, but it is, however, sporting a slick Hurst 4-speed manual transmission and the original BOSS intake manifold.
The car’s reserve hasn’t been met yet, but the seller says that the car is “the least expensive BOSS 302 on the market.” The car is listed at $41,900 on the California Cars website.
Yes, I know I just said I don’t like highlighting cars being sold on eBay by dealers and that three of the five cars on this list are dealer cars, but just because I don’t like doing something doesn’t mean that I’m not a glutton for punishment. It’s just too hard to pass on cars when they demand the attention that this 1970 Dodge Challenger does.
Equipped with a rather massive 528 HEMI and bright yellow paint, this car will have people captivated with its sound and looks. The 3.91 gearing and professionally built transmission also tells us the car would have no qualms making colossal, smokey burnouts.
The color and the fact that this ‘Cuda was a convertible are what stopped me from scrolling any further. I’m also a fan of the steel wheels painted the same Plum Crazy hue and the Plymouth hubcaps. Digging deeper into the parts list, I found that the car originally was powered by 383, but during the rebuild the decision was made to go with a favorable 426 HEMI. Perfect.
The 425-hp 426 HEMI is mated to a 727 Torqueflight transmission and a Dana 60 rear end. The ‘Cuda has 77 miles since the meticulous rebuild and the asking price is $179,900. The seller is willing to take reasonable offers.
I’m a sucker for a clean restomod – something we’re seeing increasingly in second generation Camaros. The long hood and short rear deck lends itself nicely to the restoration trend and by adding functionality and drivability by way of modernization, I don’t see this trend going away anytime soon.
This Camaro sports a deep black paint job—that you can get lost in—and its exterior is accentuated by 19-inch Intro wheels and a large chin spoiler. It’s clear the car’s monotone color is where “Black Out” came from.
Power comes from an LS3 that has been bored and stroked to 422 cubic-inches. The engine sends power through a 4L80e transmission to a 8.5-inch rear end sporting 3.42 gears. Total build cost is listed as “A LOT.” Reserve has not been met yet.
