    Want a ride that’s cool, stylish, unique and, most importantly, provides a whole lot of enjoyment? Your friends at RK Motors Charlotte are happy to help! The beneficiary of a calculated, ground-up restoration, this first-year Camaro is the product of a lot of time spent sweating details. From its straight panels to its Metallic Burgundy 2-stage, the car’s rock-solid metal displays great craftsmanship that’s highlighted by unique pinstripe Rally Stripes. Not surprisingly, every seam on this Main Street king has been aligned to better-than-factory fit. When you step close to the car’s mirrored pigment, you’ll find flat surfaces that have traveled mere weekend miles since they were stripped to bare metal. And ultimately, it all adds up to one very impressive classic that looks right at home reflecting summertime car shows. Stare in to this panther’s smooth engine bay and you’ll find a polished and painted 327 that’s rebuilt, reliable and ready to roll! Behind that mill, a proven 700R4 4-speed twists power to a tough 12-bolt axle. That axle rides a fully restored suspension, which backs requisite power steering with a sturdy rear sway bar. At the corners of those bones, a combination of GM and SSBC calipers cinch a quartet of slotted rotors. And torque meets the pavement through 18-inch Boyd Coddington blades, which spin Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs. Swing the doors and you’ll find a custom leather interior that wraps plush, “Auto Spa” branded seats in a nice blend of classic flash and modern flair. In front of those seats, a custom dash hangs Classic Instruments telemetry beside Vintage Air climate control and Pioneer MIXTRAX audio. Below that dash, a custom console balances a small B&M shifter in front of billet power window switches. And in front of the driver, a polished and half-wrapped steering wheel laps a tilting column. Attention grabbing in every way, this Camaro backs a lot of show with a whole lot of go. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com today!

    The beneficiary of a high quality, frame-off restoration, this sweet Chevrolet half-ton is a fully sorted crowd gatherer that wraps classic ‘50s design around proven GM mechanicals. During its rejuvenation, the truck’s expressive body panels were stripped, massaged into a super straight canvas and bathed in vivid blue 2-stage. Under that glowing pigment, solid panels still exhibit all the stylistic drama famously associated with Detroit’s golden era of motoring. Those panels feature alignment that’s much better than 50-year-old factory fodder. And today, this Chevy rolls as a white glove classic from a blue-collar world! Hoist the truck’s Dynalined hood and you’ll find 235 cubic inches of inline 6-cylinder that wear an era-correct 3764476 casting number. Introduced for use in large platforms, and regarded as one of the all-time great Chevrolet powerplants, the Thriftmaster is a favorite among vintage GM truck buyers because of its simple design, adequate power and excellent durability. Behind that mill, a familiar Saginaw 3-speed funnels torque through a reliable 10-bolt axle. Old school manual steering makes quick work of turns while power assisted discs and drums bring everything to a halt. And a tough stance is achieved by 15-inch Chevrolet Rally Wheels, which spin 255/70 Cooper Cobra Radial G/Ts around stainless trim rings and smoothie center caps. When it comes to style, durability and sheer Americana, nothing beats a good old GM workhorse. And thanks to high quality restoration, this stunning Apache wraps a stalwart drivetrain in a highly capable chassis and crisp, clean aesthetics.

    With Henry Ford steel, timeless aesthetics and a clean leather interior, this Ford’s basic specs could describe a relatively stock car. But a few minutes of deeper examination reveals otherwise, as, from trick wheels and 350 cubic inches of Chevrolet V8 to cool air conditioning and a modern automatic transmission, choice modifications start adding up to one impressive ride! The car’s smooth body began life as solid Henry Ford steel that was maintained, driven and paraded for most of its existence. During a gradual, ground-up restoration, that old school metal was stripped, sanded and kept as intentionally original as possible. That classy fuselage stretches rich Maroon 2-stage under Maroon cloth that’s finished with a glass backlite. And ultimately, this De Luxe rolls as a fetching classic that walks a fine line between traditional street rod swing and outrageous SoCal flair. ‘Keep it simple’ is a good philosophy when it comes to performance and reliability. And the builders of this clean classic did exactly that by equipping the car with a steady, 350 cubic inch Chevrolet small block. Behind that mill, a chrome-trimmed 700R4 4-speed, equipped with a finned cooler, spins power to a chrome-capped 10-bolt axle. That stout drivetrain rides an upgraded chassis that’s fitted with tubular control arms and beefy coil-over-shocks. Modern rack-and-pinion steering is a welcome addition. Braking is solid, thanks to a floor-mounted booster, a rail-mounted proportioning valve and four large discs. And everything rolls on stainless-trimmed wires, which spin two 185/65R15 BF Goodrich Silvertown whitewalls and two 235/70R15 BF Goodrich Silvertown whitewalls around bright yellow paint and ornate “V8” center caps. Have you forgotten what it’s like to drive a car you actually enjoy? To drive a car that’ll inspire joyous memories for years to come?

    The beneficiary of a detailed, concours-level restoration that included many authentic German components, this awesome Deluxe is about as close to “ultimate” as a classic can get. That rebuild, conducted by KAO Auto Styling of Las Vegas, Nevada, began with a solid body that was completely stripped, mounted to a rotisserie and worked for countless hours. Once those panels were super tight and exceptionally straight, smooth Pearl White and Mouse Gray 2-stage was rubbed to a mirror-like shine. And the end result is one extremely nostalgic collectable that exhibits classy, era-correct aesthetics. Like its Beetle brethren, the Transporter is powered by an air-cooled, rear-mounted 4-cylinder that makes noise and fumes nearly non-existent for front passengers. Raise the hatch and you'll find a balanced and rebuilt boxer motor that clocks in at exactly 1,500 cubic centimeters. While modest, that upgraded powerplant is perfectly capable of maintaining safe highway speeds as it frequently achieves almost 30 MPG on stoplight-free, cross-country treks. Since Type 1 Beetle pans proved too weak for the Type 2 Transporter, Volkswagen engineered a new ladder chassis with unit-body construction. At the front of the bus, rebuilt drum brakes sit at the edges of a completely rebuilt independent suspension. At the back of the bus, a professionally rebuilt Benco 4-speed hangs between new exhaust manifolds and two more rebuilt drums. And power meets the pavement through 15-inch painted steel wheels, which spin 165R15 Coker Classic whitewalls around “VW” stamped hubcaps. This stunning, 23-window Microbus is a fully restored, fully sorted classic that’s poised for many years of fun and appreciation.

    Freshly restored and professionally polished, this tough 1982 Toyota is one of the most capable SUVs ever built. And if you’re looking to put a little fun on your map, it’s a worldly 4x4 that will not disappoint! The beneficiary of a professional, body-off restoration that took place at Vintage Land in Colombia, South America, this 1982 FJ43 is a rare medium wheelbase Land Cruiser that made its second debut in 2016. The truck’s mostly-original body was worked all the way to bare metal, promptly re-sprayed in Yellow pigment and shrouded in a fresh canvas roof. And presently, that Rhino-inspired shell creates a classy, wet-look profile that mixes searing glares with smooth reflections. Mechanically, this FJ exemplifies that top-notch restoration with a correct 2F engine. Based on General Motor’s stalwart Stovebolt Six, Toyota’s famous overhead valve mill isn’t a grossly overpowered piece, producing a competent 125 horsepower. But it’s certainly proven its ability to get this compact 4x4 out of many tight situations and tow just about any moderately sized toy its owners can imagine. Built to mimic America’s hella tough Jeep, this old school SUV features part-time 4-wheel drive and enough ground clearance to give new meaning to the phrase “stump jumper”. The truck’s rugged 4-speed utilizes big gears to serve up an awesome combination of inclement weather capability and off-road prowess. And at the corners of the floor, Charcoal steelies spin 31x10.50R15 BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/As around Warn hubs and simple stainless center caps. So, what are you waiting for? Break out the compass and set your heading to RK Motors Charlotte for your chance to own one of the nicest Land Cruisers on the planet!

    Read more

    This RKM-built Bel Air, with its massaged LS3, incredible aesthetics and thoroughly modern mechanicals, blends an array of custom, driver-friendly attributes into a pro-touring package that virtually anyone can enjoy! The build began when the car was fully disassembled, mounted to a rotisserie and completely soda-blasted of its predictable Candy Red pigment. As we assumed, all steel was solid with the exception of the hood, which was replaced by a high quality reproduction piece. After some epoxy, a bit of primer and hours of blocking, the scene was set for wet-looking PPG 2-stage. But, as you probably noticed, the car that inspired this Bel Air’s paint scheme actually had a Champagne Metallic base. Well, everyone seemed to agree that Mercedes-Benz Silver was a bit fresher looking. And as for the Jade, it was lifted directly from the muse with one exception: Fab Manager Darell Johnston mixed in copious gold flake to make it REALLY pop. And the build was completed in early 2016, just in time for the car’s owner to enjoy a full season of cruising. Glance under the domed hood and you’ll find a gorgeous Chevrolet Performance LS376/525 that’s been built, polished and tweaked to 10.7 to 1 compression and a stout 525 horsepower! Behind that hot small block, a 3,000 RPM stall converter kicks a GM-supplied 4L60E 4-speed, which easily torques a limited-slip differential and big, 3.73 gears. That drivetrain rides a full Art Morrison chassis, which rolls on a fourth generation Corvette suspension. Turns come courtesy of power rack-and-pinion steering. Stops are provided by Baer and Corvette calipers, which squeeze drilled and slotted rotors. And stylish Billet Specialties blades spin 235/40ZR18 Michelin Pilot Super Sports in front of 275/35ZR20 Michelin Pilot Super Sports. With its impressive engine, comfortable interior and relentless style, this slick ’55 is sure to be a blast! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com today!

    If you’re a muscle car fan, you know that each manufacturer has its holy grail. For Mopar guys, it’s the Hemi ‘Cuda. For Ford guys, it’s the Boss 429. And for a lot of GM guys, it’s the incredible L71 Corvette like this Bloomington Gold Certified, matching numbers roadster. Being a Bloomington Gold Certified car, you can be confident in knowing you’re getting a level of authenticity that is often hard to duplicate with restorers that want “show-winning”. Any car can be a show-winner, but only a few select Corvettes can be Bloomington Gold Certified. With that said, the GM code 983 Goodwood Green Metallic that wraps this roadster’s fiberglass is the correct color this car left the St. Louis facility in, and today it reflects a showroom quality shine. Tilt the hood forward and feast your eyes on the nastiest V8 the General could legally sell in 1967...the L71 427 cubic inch Turbo Jet V8. Producing 435 horsepower, the unique triangular air cleaner gives it away, and it hides the correct trio of Holley 2-barrel carburetors. Bright Chevy Orange paint covers the block from its oil pan to its valve covers and, as always, looks great against a fully finished hood and satin black inner fenders. Underneath you’ll find a rugged Muncie M21 4-speed manual transmission which delivers the neck snapping launches and potent acceleration Corvettes are famous for. At the ends of the car, a fully restored double A-arm front and independent rear suspension is completely detailed from its correct front sway bar down to its five leaf transverse rear spring. Swing open the car’s lightweight fiberglass doors and you’ll find a spectacular GM code 430 Green vinyl. The foam underneath the seat covers has seen just enough low speed boulevard passes to both keep its composure and feel comfortable; and the like-new carpet, which is protected by clear rubber floor mats, still features a fade-free sheen. L71 Corvettes are about as blue-chip as ‘60s muscle can get. They remain top-notch collectibles and continue to show market increases year after year, and when the time comes to sell, there will always be more buyers than sellers. If you’ve been looking for a solid C2 Corvette that you can show with pride or keep for a while and make a nice return on, your search is over!

    Read more

    This clean custom’s solid Brookville Roadster body began life as high quality steel that was worked into a lean, long and low profile by the pros at Mooresville, North Carolina’s Man Made Legends. As you can probably tell, that process included a lot more than simple sanding and filling, as the car’s taut fuselage was stretched over a custom frame with the help of careful channeling. When you want to paint a vintage Ford hot rod, it’s best to go with vintage Ford pigment, like this roadster’s 1948 Monsoon Maroon 2-stage. Finishing touches took the form of Ford Twolite headlamps, a simple tag bracket, blue-dot taillights and a body-matched window frame. And in the summer of 2013, this classic hit the road as a delightfully simplistic showpiece that mixes the skill of experienced fabricators with the integrity of experienced builders. Check the glossy engine bay and you’ll find 276 cubic inches of Ford 59A flathead that, thanks to approximately 200 horsepower, make this custom a blast to drive! An NOS short block that still wore factory tags prior to its inclusion in the build, that stalwart powerplant maintains rock-solid reliability in literally every season. That rowdy mill spins power through a tough T5 5-speed, which twists a Ford 9-inch axle around fresh 3.43 gears. In keeping with the car’s ‘custom but functional’ theme, that first class drivetrain rides a custom, fully reinforced chassis that’s stanced out of 2x4 rectangular tubing. At the head of those heavy duty rails, a drilled I-beam axle provides four inches of drop. Opposite that roller, fresh QA-1 coil-overs plant the car’s exceptionally light rear-half. That suspension counters the engine’s grunt with a combination of 11 and 12-inch drums. And all that hardware rolls on matte-finished steelies, which lap 6.00-16 Coker-sourced whitewalls.

    Mixing a stroked BluePrint V8 and tough TorqueFlite 3-speed with a custom chassis and show-stopping bodywork, this road-ready warrior is worthy of EVERY gearhead’s full attention. If you’re looking for a professionally built custom that highlights purposeful simplicity with acute detailing, take a close look at this impressive D100! Fully sorted and ready to roll, this super cool pickup recently received a professional, frame-off restoration that was completed by Lakeside Rods and Rides of Rockwell City, Iowa. As you can tell from our high-resolution photos, that first class build is highlighted by a smooth combination of glossy Ford Mineral Gray and Matte Tectonic Silver 2-stage. Under that high quality PPG pigment, an incredibly straight fuselage hangs solid panels that, apart from a thorough massage during the aforementioned reboot, appear to have led a quiet, drama-free existence. Those massaged panels feature better-than-factory alignment and, when opened and closed, function exceptionally well. And that functional body’s combination of excellent reflections and Kansas-flat surfaces suggests many labor-intensive hours were spent exacting top-notch finish work. Toss the hood and you’ll find a trusty Chrysler 360 that, thanks to the pros at Kearney, Nebraska’s BluePrint Engines, has been stroked to 408 cubic inches. The mill sends power to a proven A727 3-speed which, perched on a Fat Man crossmember, spins a trusty Ford axle. That smooth drivetrain pushes a custom 4-link suspension, which sports fresh Ridetech air bags. Tracking is provided by an upgraded front clip, which is fitted with power rack-and-pinion steering and two more Ridetech bags. Quick stops are a cinch thanks to power front disc and rear drum brakes. And at the corners of the chassis, custom US Mags Heavy Artillery wheels twist 245/45R18 Falken Ziex radials in front of 275/40R20 Falken Ziex radials.

    Wrapping sinister aesthetics around a custom chassis, a leather-lined cockpit and a spry 502/5-speed drivetrain, this Camaro is all about the phrase “quintessential American muscle car”! The product of a nut-and-bolt rotisserie restoration that was completed in early 2015, this authentic X66 Super Sport features an athletic appearance that’s ready for prime time. The car was built by Scott Whidby of Moultrie, Georgia: a man who’s no stranger to world-class Camaro projects, having won multiple national awards and enjoyed features in pretty much every magazine that writes about Chevys. And today, it presents as one very enticing panther that’s sure to please ANY red-blooded enthusiast! Lift the glowing hood and you’ll find a custom-built, 502 cubic inch Chevrolet big block that spins stout 11 to 1 compression into roughly 600 horsepower! Behind that mill, a fresh Centerforce clutch engages a tough Tremec TKO600 5-speed, which spins a new Ford 9-inch around a posi-traction differential and big, 4.11 gears. Below that driveline, a custom front-half makes good use of tubular control arms, adjustable QA1 coil-overs and power rack-and-pinion steering. Opposite that fully fabricated clip, a triangulated 4-link hangs two more adjustable QA1 coil-overs behind rigid Detroit Speed subframe connectors. At the corners of that modern suspension, two fifth generation Corvette calipers clamp 13-inch drilled and slotted rotors while two more fifth generation Corvette calipers clamp 13.5-inch drilled and slotted rotors. And power meets the pavement through painted Intros, which spin 235/35ZR19 Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs in front of 275/35ZR20 Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs. With its brutal big block, custom suspension and fresh leather interior, this awesome Camaro combines explosive horsepower with excellent handling and classic American appeal.

    Read more

    This storied Plymouth Belvedere is a fully restored, fully documented classic that’s believed to be the first 1967 Hemi GTX Convertible produced! But wait, there’s more. Not only is this magazine-featured drop-top a national award-winning show queen that presents much nicer than when it rolled off the assembly line, it also features a great backstory. Originally purchased as a tow vehicle for Sergei Dennenbaum's The Mad Russian super stocker, this Plymouth was specifically optioned with a functional Belvedere I hood scoop and Holley 4-barrel carburetor. But, being a tried and true gearhead, Sergei wasn’t about to leave well enough alone. So, he commenced a series of mild modifications that further enhanced the car's performance. That ultimately culminated in Sergei’s mom racing the GTX alongside her son’s perennial super stocker to consistent 13-second pulls at over 100 MPH! In 1970, the car was fitted with factory-spec dual-quad induction and sold to a New York City police officer. And for the next twenty years, it would remain an odd unicorn of New York folklore. In 1990, refusing to watch the Plymouth deteriorate further, a car enthusiast's widow sold it to a well-known MoPar collector. And in 2010, Feasterville, Pennsylvania's Totally Auto commenced a detailed, rotisserie restoration. In 2011, this drop-top stormed the muscle car scene by debuting at the Muscle Cars at the Playboy Mansion show, and scoring 994 out of 1,000 points to earn gold certification at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals. And, in the years since, it’s attended many top-tier shows and even spent a little time in the Wellborn Musclecar Museum. If you’re looking for some tough, investment grade muscle that’s fun to look at, a blast to drive and ready to hit the show circuit as soon as it rolls out of our showroom, congratulations, you’ve found your next classic!

That quality DuPont pigment hugs a solid Atlantic Coast Glass body that would give any high dollar garage queen a serious run for its money. Utilize the Dan Fink hood system and you’ll find a reliable, 350 cubic inch Chevrolet small block that, according to the car’s owner, turns buff 9.5 to 1 compression into a solid 350 horsepower. Behind that mill, a chrome-trimmed B&M Turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed feeds a 9-inch, Brookville-supplied axle that’s finished with 3.50 gears and a posi-traction differential. That drivetrain rides a tough Brookville Roadster chassis, which is perched on a TCI front suspension and triangulated 4-bar rear suspension. Handling is good thanks to modern rack-and-pinion steering, and power front disc and rear drum brakes. And in front of those brakes, painted Coys wheels wear Radar Dimax R8 rubber. Between the doors, a custom waterfall frames firm leather seats, which ride vivid carpet that frames custom pedals and a familiar Lokar shifter. In front of those thrones, a custom-molded dash features fresh Auto Meter telemetry. And in front of the driver, a polished Billet Specialties steering wheel spins a leather-wrapped rim around a polished, tilting column. In summary, this spectacular Ford is the perfect street rod for anyone who wants a fully-sorted cruiser that’ll tear up the roads and take home trophies.

    Want to view the street rod scene from the best seat in the house? Take a close look at this awesome Ford! Sourced from Wild Rods of Granada Hills, California, this hot roadster’s quality fiberglass body was super clean before its 6-figure build even started. But nonetheless, the car was subjected to a full, ground-up massage that included hours of labor-intensive prep. Naturally, that dramatic attention to detail was highlighted in equally dramatic 2-stage, which reflects bright Viper Red pigment. And today, with an undeniable nod to timeless Ford design, this classic rolls as a banner show piece that celebrates the best virtues of modern street rodding. Peek under the car’s clamshell hood and you’ll find 5.7 liters of LS1 V8 that makes over 300 horsepower! Straight from the factory, the proven mill combines a sturdy aluminum block with lightweight aluminum heads, coil-near-plug ignition and aluminum flat top pistons to create razor-sharp throttle response and a torque band that’s as wide as Texas. That spry small block torques a dressed and painted 700R4 4-speed, which spins a polished driveshaft that’s threaded to a polished Ford 9-inch. That custom drivetrain pushes a polished 4-link suspension that’s fitted with adjustable air bags. Opposite that 4-link, a polished independent front-clip employs tubular control arms and two more adjustable air bags. Turns come courtesy of power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering. Quick stops are a cinch thanks to polished Wilwood calipers, which utilize a Wilwood proportioning valve to clamp two vented rotors and two solid rotors. And at the corners of the chassis, stylish Colorado Custom blades turn 235/40ZR18 Fulda Carat Extremos in front of 295/45R20 Toyo Proxes S/Ts. With all the right parts, and tasteful looks that will always draw a crowd, this slick little roadster would be a great addition to any garage.

    With a Ford Racing suspension, a tough Tremec transmission and a supercharged, 750 horsepower V8, this Mustang was already carrying a big stick. And after being fitted with a custom leather interior and hand-fabricated wide body sheetmetal, it’s one proud and rowdy custom! Wearing shimmering Aston Martin Morning Frost Pearl under Pearl Shelby war paint, this spotless Mustang is nine inches wider than stock thanks to hours of custom bodywork. All the car’s upgrades were performed by Galpin Auto Sports of Van Nuys, California: an outfit that undoubtedly knows how to churn out killer performance machines. The body’s hand-fabricated sheetmetal is 100% straight, framing functional side scoops, sealed quarter windows and a lightweight Super Snake hood. And familiar factory bits, like traditional Shelby emblems, HID headlights and an extended deck spoiler give the build extra credibility while items like color-keyed mirrors, a color-keyed splitter and a color-keyed diffuser finish the look. Created as a turnkey package for enthusiasts who want a reliably engineered Mustang that unlocks the full potential of Ford’s legendary ‘mod motor’, this top-of-the-line GT500 utilizes a Ford Racing/Shelby supercharger to crank out an astonishing 750 horsepower! Behind that smooth engine, a slick-shifting Tremec TR6060 6-speed sends power to a limited-slip differential and optional 3.73 gears. That drivetrain rides an SVT-tuned suspension, which makes excellent use of quality Ford Racing components. At the corners of that chassis, 6-piston Wilwood calipers squeeze drilled and slotted rotors. Turns come courtesy of Ford’s super-efficient power-assisted steering. All that first-class speed and agility rolls on the stylish Forgiato kicks, which spin 295/30ZR20 Pirelli P Zeros in front of 335/30ZR20 Pirelli P Zeros.

    In the market for an incredible classic that’s poised to rise in value? Here’s your next classic! Much cleaner than when it originally rolled down Chrysler’s storied assembly lines, this slick Plymouth coupe has been transformed into a take-no-prisoners show stopper that consistently drops jaws. You won’t be staying under the radar with the car’s correct Scorch Red paint, which highlights a very clean body that’s benefitted from a full restoration. There are no signs of rust or rot, suggesting that solid metal was a straight, trouble-free canvas before its detailed metamorphosis began. Not surprisingly, panel gaps are good enough to make factory-spec trim line up exactly right. And overall, this fully sorted classic is an impressive representation of timeless Detroit muscle. Fully detailed, covered in Hemi Orange and wearing few miles since its July, 2016 rebuild, this slick Plymouth's original, 440 cubic inch Super Commando V8 is spectacular in every measurable way! Behind that big-bore engine, the car's original A727 3-speed hangs a correct high performance build stamp and matching partial VIN in front of a tough 8.75-inch axle and stout Sure Grip differential. Naturally, the car's front torsion bar and rear leaf suspension has been completely restored to include correct power steering. 2.5-inch aluminized exhaust pipes send spent gases through an H-shaped crossover, polished Pypes Street Pro mufflers and traditional stainless tips. And at the corners of the chassis, factory drums spin behind chrome Magnum 500 wheels and meaty 255/60R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As. With original Super Commando power, original TorqueFlite motivation and correct red on red aesthetics, this all-business MoPar combines explosive appeal with boundless potential.

And a slew of distinctly Chrysler details add spades of vintage class. The fire-breathing V10 rumbling under this car’s trick hood needs little introduction. Displacing a massive 8.4 liters and turning 600 horsepower into 560 lb./ft. of blissful torque, the 2008 Viper mill is one of the most outrageous powerplants ever bolted between two fenders. Behind that world-class power, a Tremec TR6060 6-speed drives a durable Dana 44 around big, 3.45 gears. Holding that versatile drivetrain off the ground is a custom suspension, which incorporates modern coil-overs and a heavy-duty rear sway bar into a Corvette rear-half and AlterKtion front-clip. And everything rolls on ION 625s, which spin 225/45R17 Federal Super Steels in front of 255/55R17 Federal Super Steels

    This show stopping C10 is an amazing classic that wraps a lowered suspension and thoroughly massaged aesthetics around a modern 700R4 4-speed and 383 cubic inches of Chevrolet muscle! Benefitting from a ground-up restoration that was completed in 2015, this polished pick-up was sent to Doug Krashner Auto Body of Clover, South Carolina where it was stripped, fitted with fresh metal, decked in PPG Deep Atlantic Blue base and sealed in pearl clear. Despite its massaged drivetrain, the truck’s trim and ornamentation remain largely as the General specified. Pop the hood and you’ll find 383 cubic inches of spry Chevy small block that was professionally assembled by A&K Rebuilders of Clover, South Carolina. Behind that trusty small block, a 2,500 RPM stall kicks a custom-built 700R4 4-speed, which spins an aluminum Carolina Driveline driveshaft. That 3.5-inch tube twists power to an aluminum-capped Drivetrain Specialties Dana 60, which centers an Eaton Truetrac differential on 3.73 gears, 35-spline axles, ARP studs and big Ford hubs. Everything rolls on a factory-style suspension, which was fully rebuilt to include drop spindles, lowering springs and QA-1 adjustable shocks. Modern power steering makes parking easy and turns a cinch. Stops are provided by an SSBC booster, which jolts a Wilwood proportioning valve, two 4-piston SSBC calipers and two 3-piston SSBC calipers to clamp 14-inch drilled and slotted rotors. Power meets the pavement through hot Billet Specialties Vintecs, which twist 255/50R17 Nitto NT450 Extreme Performance radials in front of 275/50R17 Nitto NT450 Extreme Performance radials. And when you pop this stepside’s doors you’ll find a sweet Black Houndstooth cockpit that’s been upgraded in all the right places. This slick C10 is a head turning build that features a potent drivetrain and many well-executed details which make it the perfect combination of show and go.

    If you've been searching for an awesome late-model Vette that’s fun, documented and equipped with top-notch pedigree, you’ve found your next car! This ZR-1’s bright Torch Red paint, which is topped by a durable clearcoat shell, perfectly accentuates its lightweight body. That body’s composite panels display precise fit and excellent finish under ancillary hardware that functions well and seals great. And by the looks of this Corvette’s slick finish, I’m fairly certain it has never seen daily driver duty. The aluminum LT5 V8 found under the hood of this virtually new coupe is a modern work of automotive art. Originally intended to be a simple set of 16-valve cylinder heads atop a basic Chevrolet small block, the Lotus engineers assigned to the project quickly realized there was no cost-effective way to build such a motley beast. Instead, they designed a world class V8 which shared basic dimensions with Chevrolet’s storied small block, but exactly zero interchangeable components. The result is a 32-valve, 4-cam powerhouse that features a trick dual-path induction system, 405 horsepower and 385 lb./ft. of torque, all without any help from fuel supplements or any kind of forced induction. Behind that hot small block, a proven ZF 6-speed distributes power to a factory Corvette rear end. All ZR-1s have a Lotus-tuned FX3 double A-arm front and independent rear suspension, which features electronic traction control and driver-adjustable active ride control. 4-wheel, Lotus-tuned power discs combine with Lotus-tuned power steering to keep all that power productive. And torque meets the pavement through a set of killer 17-inch alloys that spin super wide 275/40 Goodyear Eagle F1 radials in front of even wider 315/35 Goodyear Eagle F1 radials. Whether this awesome C4 is your first Corvette, or just the newest addition to your fleet, it’s the kind of quality collector car that’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face!

    Living each of its 31 years as a treasured authentic, this 1986 Mustang SVO is absolutely one of the finest Fox Body survivors on the planet! As a well-maintained survivor that’s averaged only 356 miles per year, this Ford’s original body appears to be in great shape. Naturally, that unmolested fuselage wears a clean coat of original Dark Gray paint. And noteworthy SVO cosmetics include: a unique front clip, aero-shaped headlights, a functional hood scoop, rear wheel spats, body-matched quarter window trim, a ‘bi-plane’ spoiler, a unique rear bumper cover, striped taillights and subtle “SVO” fender badges. With the death of the V8 being yelled from rooftops, SVO engineers opted for a turbocharged version of Ford's 2.3 liter inline 4-cylinder. That iron mill utilizes computer-controlled Bosch fuel injection, an intercooled Garrett T3 turbo and new-for-1986 cooling to turn stout 8 to 1 compression into 205 horsepower and 240 lb./ft. of torque. A standard Borg Warner T5 5-speed benefits from revised gearing and a Traction-Lok posi-traction rear end that’s fitted with big, 3.73 gears. Beneath that drivetrain, a complete Koni suspension system replaces already competent Mustang GT hardware. 15 to 1 quick-ratio power steering combines with ventilated, 4-wheel disc brakes to ensure crisp turns and sudden stops. And 16-inch Enkei wheels spin 225/50 Goodyear Eagle Sports around chrome lug nuts. This '86 SVO was the last, and some would say best, of vintage 4-cylinder pony car performance. And, with roughly 11K miles on 100% original equipment, the car would be right at home in any serious Mustang collection. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information!

    Backing six liters of all-American small block with a composite body, five forward gears, a Corvette suspension and custom leather hides, this ferocious Factory Five GTM is sure to give any red-blooded car enthusiast a case of white knuckles! Factory Five Racing has long been applauded for their great composite work, and this GTM is no exception. The car’s profile, trimmed on a 5-axis RTP-Fanuc robot, is a hand-laid Vinylester shell that’s been laminated to 3/16ths and covered in a .015-inch gel coat. That gel lays excellent groundwork for wet looking 2-stage, which, while it appears blue, is officially called BMW Carbon Black Metallic. The car’s taut profile, produced in 2006 and titled upon its 2011 inspection, was massaged and sprayed by Anthony Kutas of Dents Charlotte. And, since debuting from its $156K custom build in late 2015, this coupe has traversed a scant 30 miles. Nothing is more American than a spry Chevy small block. Lift the car’s sculpted deck and you’ll find the forerunner to virtually all the technology still featured in Chevrolet sports cars: GM’s potent Gen IV LS2. The rowdy mill utilizes 364 cubic inches to twist buff 10.9 to 1 compression into an even 400 horsepower and 400 lb./ft. of Oak-shaking torque. Behind that lightweight powerplant, a Porsche G50 transaxle employs a limited-slip differential and custom ratios to achieve a 3.44 final drive. Turns come courtesy of a manual steering rack, which leads a fifth-generation Corvette suspension that’s balanced, weight-tuned, fitted with anti-roll bars and finished with custom-tuned Genesis coil-overs. Stops come courtesy of sixth-generation Corvette Z06 binders. All that proven track prowess rolls on 1-piece CCW C2Ks, which twist sticky Michelin Pilot Sports.

Between customer jobs, that owner began detailed restoration work.

That 2-stage wraps a solid profile that, during the car’s nut-and-bolt rotisserie restoration, was stripped bare and lovingly massaged in to shape.

    Built as an appealing mix of retro style and modern performance, this cool pickup is a direct result of what happens when a roster of top notch components meets timeless Ford steel. And if you’re a discerning rodder who’s looking for a classic with a little more substance than chrome and bright paint, it’s your one-way ticket to bigger and better things! Owned by the same family for the first 86 years of its 87-year existence, this awesome custom’s tidy fuselage began life as authentic Ford steel that, during a 2-year, ground-up restoration, was stripped, solidified and fully refinished. When that 1996 transformation was almost complete, the truck’s profile donned custom 2-stage that began as ‘50s Chevrolet Tropical Turquoise base. Lift the tapered hood and you’ll find a hot GM Performance Parts ZZ4 350 that utilizes a forged crank, powdered rods, a hydraulic cam and hypereutectic pistons to turn stout 10 to 1 compression into 355 horsepower and 405 lb./ft. of torque. Behind that hot small block, a proven 700R4 4-speed twists torque to a 9-inch Ford axle. That limited-slip differential funnels power through a 4-bar rear-clip that’s finished with modern coil-over-shocks. That fully sorted suspension pushes a solid axle front-half that’s finished with traditional, mirrored shocks. That polished TCI suspension is stopped by four power-assisted discs. Everything rolls on polished Halibrand wheels, which twist polished spinners inside two 195/75R14 Michelin RainForce MX4s and two 235/75R15 Michelin RainForce MX4s.

    Purchased by its most dedicated owner on January 1st, 1958, this largely-original T-bird was daily driven until sometime around 1973 when it was stashed in storage. No one really knows why that happened. But it probably wasn’t due to mechanical failure, since the car’s aforementioned owner also ran a respected auto repair business that was well known around the Greensboro, North Carolina area. At any rate, the owner began collecting spare Ford parts in preparation for a ground-up restoration. And that restoration began sometime in the early ‘80s, with a complete overhaul of the car’s frame and drivetrain. Sadly, while restoring the car, the owner began to develop dementia and, naturally, the restoration was sidelined in the name of more important things. Fast-forward roughly 25 years to the Spring of 2015 when the Ford’s current owner was notified of its inclusion in an estate sale. The current owner, having restored Thunderbirds in the past, was delighted to find a fantastic, rust-free project that merely needed finishing. And in February of 2016, this Thunderbird hit the road as a clean, body-off restored classic that wraps all-original sheetmetal around a roster of original components. Tilt this Ford’s lightweight hood and you’ll find a 312 cubic inch Thunderbird V8 that, fully rebuilt in the mid-80s, has been recently overhauled with fresh bearings and seals. Behind that Y-block, an overhauled Ford-O-Matic 3-speed spins power to what appears to be a traditional Ford 9-inch. The car’s suspension remains in its original configuration, with control arms up front and leafs out back. Turns come courtesy of lucid steering. Braking is quick and adequate thanks to power-assisted drums. And on the outside of those drums, color-keyed wheels spin 205/75R14 American Classic whitewalls around white-trimmed center caps. If there’s one phrase that describes this awesome classic, it would be “luxury sport”. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com today!

The simple pigment you see in our high resolution photography reflects a correct shade of Wimbledon White, and that correct shade of Wimbledon White comes courtesy of old school single-stage paint. Why, you ask, is a $350K classic finished in such elementary digs? Because the owner of this killer coupe spent the better part of 13 years returning the car to exactly the state it was originally sold in. Actually, come to think of it, “13 years” is a bit misleading, as the car’s nut-and-bolt concours restoration really began in the 1990s under the stewardship of a previous owner. Lift the hood and you’ll find an original, 429 cubic inch Cobra Jet V8 that’s restored and ready to rock and roll thanks to Marion Performance Racing Engines of Marion, Arkansas! Behind that mill, an original Toploader 4-speed spins a tagged Dead Nuts On driveshaft, which is threaded to a DSD-restored Ford 9-inch. That awesome drivetrain is held off the ground by a DSD-restored Competition Suspension. Correct power steering combines with correct power front disc and rear drum brakes to provide competent track capability. Factory-spec Scott Fuller pipes funnel roasted dinosaurs through an H-shaped crossover, small resonators and a transverse muffler. And original Magnum 500s twist reproduction F60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs. This investment grade Ford is a fast, rare and extremely impressive example of America’s coolest pony car.

Assembled in Lansing, Michigan during the second week of February, 1971, this awesome Oldsmobile is an impeccably restored classic that’s benefitted from an extensive, ground-up restoration. During that thorough reboot, the car’s solid profile was decked in correct Viking Blue base, trimmed with sinister W-30 stripes and sealed in glossy clear. And today, this coupe rolls as one razor-sharp classic that’s primed for both the street and the show! Hoist the hood and you’ll find 455 cubic inches of Rocket V8 that’s branded with a correct 396021F casting number and a matching partial VIN. That mill fronts a correct Muncie 4-speed, which twists power to an aluminum-capped axle that’s stuffed with 3.73 gears. That marked driveline rides a familiar FE2 heavy duty suspension. Solid stops are provided by rebuilt power front disc and rear drum brakes. Turns come courtesy of factory power steering. And everything rolls on chrome Styled Steel Is, which spin G70-14 Firestone Wide Oval Super Sports around rocket-branded center caps. Inside this impressive coupe, you’ll find a correct Black interior that appears to have been completely replaced during the aforementioned restoration. At the front of the car, a wood-trimmed dash hangs deluxe Rallye Pac telemetry opposite stainless-trimmed strato-bucket seats. Between those thrones, a plateaued console frames a requisite Hurst shifter. And in front of the driver, a Sport Steering Wheel laps a bright rocket emblem.

    Mix one of the most popular cars ever created with the hottest trend in the automotive industry and you get this amazing 1964 Corvette coupe. The subject of a frame off restoration, the car now follows the pro-touring formula to a tee, creating one of the most desirable C2s imaginable. Since a head-turning show-ready car was the goal, all the "perfectly imperfect" Corvette ideology was thrown out the window in favor of creating a pristine shell fit for a fresh coat of bright red paint. Accented by a black-striped Stinger hood, the car carries one of the most legendary looks in the Corvette catalog. Under that hood, a GM Performance 427cid features a forged rotating assembly, aluminum heads, and F.A.S.T fuel injection for a fully modernized take on a classic Corvette engine option. Accessories include a new alternator, power steering pump, and Vintage Air compressor. Turn the key and the big block fires to life, emitting an aggressive bark through polished headers and chambered side-exit exhaust. Behind the engine, a Tremec five-speed manual transmission transfers power to a stock C4 Corvette differential. Around the drivetrain, a rigid Jamison tube chassis transforms the vintage C2 into a full blown canyon carver with the help of several C4 pieces, QA1 coilovers, a C4 power rack and pinion, and four-wheel disc brakes powered by a Wilwood master cylinder. At the corners, 17/18-inch Z06 Spyder wheels meet the pavement through sticky Yokohama S.drive tires. Inside, additions include C5 Corvette seats, power windows, air conditioning, and a killer sound system based around an iPod-controlled head unit from Oxygen Audio.

    If you're looking for the perfect truck to park in the show field, look no further. Built by Pope's Hot Rods in Smyrna, Tennessee, this recently completed frame-off restoration takes clean to a new level. Major body modifications include suicide doors, shaved door handles and a forward-tilting hood. Bathed in glossy Viper Red paint, the truck practically glows. Between the fiberglass front fenders, a GM 350 crate engine powers the truck. From the Inglese 8-stack fuel injection to the polished headers, nearly everything in this bay shines. Around the engine, a shaved firewall and smoothed inner fenders offers an ultra-clean backdrop. Behind the engine, a reliable TH350 automatic transmission takes care of shifts before channeling power back to a polished Ford 9-inch differential packed with 3.50 gears. Around the drivetrain, a smoothed and painted frame matches the painted floors with polished hardware all around. The front is held in place by a Fat Man Fabrications Mustang II clip, finished with power rack-and-pinion steering and disc brakes. The rear is supported by a polished triangulated 4-link and a pair of Alden coil-overs, also framed by disc brakes. At the corners, polished Billet Specialties wheels, wrapped in fresh Falken rubber, fill the fat fenderwells to give the truck a great modern look. Between the doors, a custom interior is based around tan leather bucket seats sunk into a custom leather cab wall. At either side, sculpted door panels front power windows. The simple steel dash hangs clean telemetry over Vintage Air conditioning while an AM/FM/CD head unit provides entertainment. Stunning to look at and fun to cruise, this Effie has it all!

    Wrapping a historic Golden Lion drivetrain in a tailored interior and 18 feet of stylish sheetmetal, this incredible Chrysler, believed to be 1 of only 118 1959 300E coupes left in existence, HAS to be one of the coolest classics on the planet! Before settling in to a life of charging down multi-lane LA freeways, this decorous E was delivered to its first owner via Harger-Haldeman Chrysler in November of 1958. More recently, the car benefitted from a body-off, rotisserie restoration that was completed in late 2014. During that reboot, rust-free sheetmetal was sandblasted clean, sprayed in multiple coats of primer and dressed in wet-looking Formal Black 2-stage. That wet-sanded pigment perfectly complements triple-plated chrome, professionally refinished stainless, correct Solex glass and vivid red-bar grilles. And today, roughly 100 miles out of the shop, the car rolls as one exceptionally striking and decidedly handsome classic! Toss the sculpted hood and you’ll find a correct Golden Lion V8 that, in addition to being re-machined, rebuilt and restored to better-than-new condition, is authenticated by an “MR413” assembly stamp and a 1851629 casting number. That low-slung powerplant communicates through a correct A488 TorqueFlite, which is hooked to an 8.75-inch Chrysler axle that’s fitted with Sure Grip posi and 3.31 gears. That proven drivetrain rides a familiar torsion bar/leaf spring suspension, which makes good use of correct Constant-Control power steering. At the corners of that suspension, correct Center-Plane drums ensure solid, fade-free stops. And all that road-worthy hardware rolls on painted steel wheels, which twist 9.00-14 BF Goodrich Silvertown whitewalls around patriotic 300 hub caps. If you’re a discerning gearhead who likes top-notch classics that draw crowds wherever they go, this all-American cruiser will be a significant addition to your collection!

    Wrapping a numbers-matching drivetrain in correct turquoise on turquoise aesthetics, this MacNeish-certified Nova transforms the phrase "investment grade compact" from oxymoron into fact! The beneficiary of a detailed rotisserie restoration that was completed in late 2015, this Nova is a sharp weekend cruiser that currently presents much better than original factory fodder. During the car's precise reboot, solid sheetmetal was completely striped of its dull, original pigment. With that shell removed, and its foundation massaged into great alignment, correct Tropic Turquoise base was sealed in mirror-like clear. And today, one close look at our high-resolution photos reveals a handsome payoff in the form of one slick Chevrolet muscle car! Even if you forget everything else we tell you about this Chevy II, be sure to pay VERY close attention to what's under the car's hood. Motivating this real-deal Super Sport is a 1966-exclusive L79 V8 that, according to the factory, twists stout 11 to 1 compression into 350 Corvette-matching horsepower. Power flows through an original Muncie M20 4-speed, which twists an original 12-bolt axle that’s finished with correct 3.31 gears and a correct posi-traction differential. Holding that virtually unbreakable drivetrain off the ground is a restored double A-arm front and leaf spring rear suspension. Stops come courtesy of manual drum brakes. And all that old school Americana rolls on painted steelies, which spin 6.95-14 BF Goodrich Silvertown 660 whitewalls around polished Super Sport hub caps. So there you have it: a rare, fully documented piece of Chevrolet history that features an original, ’66-exclusive powertrain. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information.

    The 1965 Plymouth Belvedere A990 represents MoPar Racing History at its all-time best. A factory-built, street-legal lightweight whose sole purpose was to dominate NHRA Super Stock Drag Racing, it could be ordered from any Plymouth dealer that was lucky enough to have an allocation. This sedan, number 44 of 101 Race Hemi Belvederes assembled for the 1965 model year, was 1 of 4 A990s delivered through St. John’s Chrysler-Plymouth in St. Augustine, Florida. Recently the car was subjected to a detailed, rotisserie restoration that saw its battered unibody fully replaced. Naturally, that foundation was properly dressed in acid-dipped doors, an acid-dipped hood, acid-dipped fenders and an acid-dipped scoop. Details are on-point, with items like lightweight bumper brackets and lightweight Corning side glass complementing era-correct Ruby Red 2-stage. And, although street legal, this R051 Plymouth is built to correct factory Super Stock criteria, meaning it can be run in sanctioned class events as desired. Professionally rebuilt by HBR Competition Engines of Las Vegas, Nevada, this A990’s correct, 426 cubic inch Race Hemi produces a dyno-proven 609 horsepower on 91-octane pump gas. HBR worked their magic bottom-side as well, rebuilding the car’s era-correct 4-speed: a 1965-exclusive unit that becomes rarer by the year. That stalwart gearbox spins a factory-correct 8.75-inch differential, which twists a Sure Grip posi around 31-spline axles and big, 4.56 gears. That industrial strength driveline rolls on a fully rebuilt Super Stock suspension. And power meets the pavement through vintage American Racing Torq Thrust Ds, which spin 7.10-15 Firestone Deluxe Champions in front of 8.20-15 Firestone Dragster street slicks. If you’re looking for a top-notch classic that’ll draw a crowd wherever it goes, call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com and take a look at this incredible Belvedere!

    The best thing about being a Camaro fan is: through five generations and 50 years of cars, GM has continuously provided a variety of purpose-built packages that are brimming with charisma. And today, when it comes to enjoyable classics, you simply can’t go wrong with a well-built F1. Tastefully modified first generation cars continue to be some of the hottest selling metal on the market. And this massaged panther has all the right ingredients to bring big fun and even bigger appeal! Assembled in June of 1967, this awesome Chevy is the beneficiary of a ground-up, rotisserie restoration that transformed it from a tired old pony into a timeless Super Sport tribute. The work began with stripping the car’s body to bare metal, and fitting a solid center-section with fresh GM quarters. When those pieces were smooth and tightly aligned, PPG DP90 epoxy led hours of block-sanding. And when that sanding was level, rich PPG 2-stage, a duplicate of the car’s original Madeira Maroon pigment, was raised to a show stopping shine. Under the hood you’ll find 327 cubic inches of date-correct small block that’s been bored, balanced, blueprinted and built into an absolute beast! Behind that mill, a proven Muncie 4-speed, dressed in a blueprinted Lakewood scattershield, utilizes a steel Hayes flywheel and quality Centerforce clutch to twist power through a 3-inch driveshaft. That tube is connected to a 12-bolt GM pumpkin, which is finished with 3.42 gears, 33-spline axles and .5-inch studs. That first-rate drivetrain pushes a throughly upgraded suspension. Steering and braking is true to factory form, with a power assisted rack leading power front disc and rear drum binders. And everything rolls on stainless-trimmed Rallies, which spin staggered BF Goodrich Radial T/As. If you’re ready to experience the magic of some of Detroit’s finest iron, call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com to check out this awesome Camaro!

    Originally purchased as a small block curve carver, evidenced by its original L76 327 and Muncie 4-speed transmission, this refreshing Vette features rare Tuxedo Black over Silver aesthetics that are both attractive and unique. And if you’re in the market for a cool rendition of a top-notch example of America’s favorite sports car, it could be the literal interpretation of your next classic! Recently restored to assembly line specs, this sinister C2 presents a stunning color combination that, thanks to a late NASCAR super star, enjoys a natural association with both Chevrolet and success. Tilt the car’s hood and you’ll find an original L76 V8 that hangs a familiar 3782870 casting number behind a matching partial VIN and correct “HH” suffix stamp. One of the most powerful naturally aspirated V8s of its day, this impressive small block utilizes a forged crank, forged rods, forged pistons, a hot cam and solid lifters to turn stout 11.0 to 1 compression into a solid 365 horsepower. Behind that mill, a VIN-stamped Muncie hangs a correct 3851325 casting number over a Muncie (P) assembled on April (04) 5th (05) build stamp. At the ends of the car, a fully sorted double A-arm front and independent rear suspension is completely detailed down to its fresh shocks, correct springs and optional power steering. At the corners of that suspension, power disc brakes mix good handling characteristics with quick and solid stops. And at the edges of those brakes, torque flows to the pavement through clean ‘knock-off’ wheels, which spin 205/75R15 Uniroyal Tiger Paw whitewalls. With its spirited 327, tough 4-speed and excellent restoration, this Sting Ray is a valuable car that you can drive and enjoy just as Duntov intended! Sound like a good way to spend your Saturdays? Then call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com and become the proud owner of one of Chevrolet’s best!

    The idea of hitting the road with a few of your closest friends is a pastime that’ll likely never fall out of style. And when it involves an exclusive classic like this awesome 21-window Samba, decades of certainty start to look like a solid investment! The beneficiary of a comprehensive restoration that concluded in 2000, this awesome Samba is about as close to “ultimate” as a classic can get. Judging by appearance, that rebuild began with a solid body that was completely stripped and worked for countless hours. Once the bus’s panels were super tight and exceptionally straight, Burgundy and Ivory 2-stage was rubbed to a mirror-like shine. And today, after 15 years in a private collection and roughly $4K of professional service work, this Volkswagen rolls as a world class collectable that claimed top honors at the Palm Springs Concours d’Elegance. Raise the hatch and you'll find a fully rebuilt boxer motor that clocks in at exactly 1,500 cubic centimeters. At the front of the bus, rebuilt drum brakes sit at the edges of a rebuilt independent suspension. At the back of the bus, a rebuilt synchromesh 4-speed rides between two more rebuilt drums. And power meets the pavement through painted steel wheels, which spin 185R14 Continental Vancos around “VW” stamped hubcaps. If you’re looking for some exclusive metal that doubles as a great investment, this stunning Samba is your next classic! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information.

    If you’re the kind of enthusiast who wants a classic that poses well for judges AND looks good on the strip, check out this ‘Nashtalgic’ Rambler! When you set your sights on creating something truly unique, you just can’t go wrong starting with vintage American steel. Thankfully, the folks at Randy’s Rods of Medford, Oregon certainly know how to massage attractive factory fodder into an immaculate, world-class custom. Designed by Mark Jones of Mattel, Hot Wheels, Ford, Chrysler and Honda fame, this Nash really began to hit its stride in the summer of 1999. With the help of Randy’s Rods, 6-figures worth of build money and the official Mark Jones sketches included with our sale, the car was transformed from a cool classic into a national headliner. A big reason for that headlining status is a smooth profile that was bathed in custom Surf Green base, sealed in glossy clear and detailed with simulated wood accents -- hand-painted by artist Don Tippit. Naturally, those aesthetics have been buffed to a wet-looking shine. And today, this wagon prowls the scene as a dreamy pavement pounder that’s poised to turn heads! Take a look under the hood and you’ll find a polished and painted LT1 that was sourced directly from Mena, Arkansas’ Street & Performance. Behind that mill, a smooth 700R4 4-speed, built by Bowtie Overdrives, twists power to a 9-inch Currie pumpkin that’s fitted with 4.11 gears, a posi-traction differential and 31-spline axles. That drivetrain rides a full Art Morrison chassis that mixes a Mustang II front-half with a 4-link rear-clip. That modern foundation has been augmented with rack-and-pinion steering and Wilwood disc brakes. And power meets the pavement through skirted Budnik Mercurys, which lap 215/40ZR17 Dunlops in front of 265/35ZR20 Continentals. Unique, lust worthy and capable, this awesome Nash is an excellent combination of classic street rod looks and incredible pro street performance.
