October Classic Car Roundup
We're back and bringing you 4 super sexy, beautiful and drool-worthy classic cars to wrap up October with a bang. The best part is, if you want it- you can BUY it!
Following the success of the original 356 (now known as the “Pre-A”), the 356A was born. It was part of “Technical Program 1” (T1), followed by a revision in 1957 that resulted in T2. It's a super desirable car, I'm sure you can see why!
"This 1959 Porsche 356A is one of 1,330 Convertible D models built during a single-year production run and was distributed new in the US by Hoffman Motor Car Co. of New York. A restoration was carried out between 1989 and 1990 and included a repaint, re-plating the chrome trim, undercoating the chassis, reupholstering the interior, and replacing the transaxle case and convertible top".

No, we're not talking about the late 1970's M-body Dodge sedan. The 1950's St. Regis was most famously known for it's attachment to a five-star hotel in downtown Manhattan. This was a novel car for its time and mechanically, revised well.
"This 1956 Chrysler New Yorker is one of 6,686 St. Regis 2-door hardtops built for the model year and was acquired by the current owner 10 years ago.

Equipment includes an AM radio, power steering, and push-button gear selection." Continue reading

"This 1937 Mercedes-Benz 230 is one of 38 two-seat roadsters built on the “Normal” wheelbase variant of the W143 platform during a single year of production. The car, chassis 155124, was ordered new by the Reichspost in Berlin, reportedly as one of three specially configured roadsters intended for use in a rally promoting the postal service, during which the other two cars are believed to have crashed. It was exported to the US at some point following World War II and returned to Europe in the 1990s." Continue Reading
