What Was the Last New Car You Could Buy With Under 50 Horsepower?
Quick, what's the latest U.S.-market new car with fewer than 50 underfed ponies under the hood? © Ford Motor Company 1934 Ford Brochure 50 horsepower isn't much, even when you discount advertising hype and the gross-versus-net differences of the pre-early-1970s era. The original Ford flathead V8s of the 1930s made 60 to 95 horsepower, and even the punitively underpowered four-cylinder Chevy Novas of the late 1960s had 90 hp (which, in all likelihood, would be rated at something like 65 hp if measured by modern-day methods). The hilariously slow black-bumper MGBs of the late 1970s had 62.
Believe it or not, this is a sedan, and we’ll explain how…
It’s always interesting to see the contraptions people post for sale on, like this sedan. Your initial reaction to this listing might be the same as ours: sedans have four doors and Yep, that’s absolutely true, but someone thought it would be a good idea to chop this Chevy up and take out those rear doors. Now we want to see them do a .
The aftermath of this rental McLaren 720 S crash isn't pretty. Take a look.
Anyway, this super interesting custom ’65“shorty” is listed as having a clean title, and thank goodness for that! We were concerned it was going to come with a fair number of problems, like how it’s missing the engine and a fair number of other components. But hey, the listing says it’s only been driven 9,999 miles, plus it’s a manual transmission car.
Barrett-Jackson CEO Auctioning His Own Mustang Shelby GT350
It'll go under the hammer in March this year. A group of 1960s Shelby vehicles will be auctioned during the WestWorld of Scottsdale auction in March 2021. Among the highly desirable muscle cars will be a perfectly restored 1965 Shelby Mustang GT350 owned by Barrett-Jackson CEO Craig Jackson. It is being described as one of the best examples of the first model year GT350 in the world. “I believe this is simply the best 1965 Shelby GT350 on the planet, and the car has an incredible pedigree,” Jackson explains.
The person who posted this Impala refers to it as a roller, but it’s more like a. Aside from the air cleaner for the engine that’s no longer present sitting on the front passenger seat, there are beer cans, cardboard boxes, and other debris on the plywood parcel shelf and in the trunk. Some of those items might be components no longer attached to the car, so you’d probably have to take it all and sort through the junk later. Fun times are to be had by the new owner for sure.
Not all is negative about this Impala. The seller says there’s “little to no rust” so you don’t have to play surgeon. Two fiberglass fenders, 2 OE front fenders, an OE deck lid, 3 OE hoods, a complete set of OE front/rear fenders, OE grille, and a 4-speed Muncie transmission are all being thrown in for good measure. We’re not sure what you’d do with all those fenders other than sell some of them. However, this could make for a cool restomod or some other crazy project.
