It’s a new month, time for a new batch of cars.

What a diverse market the collector car industry represents. Every week, the Motorious editorial staff does a dive into the classified section of the site to find the cars for sale that we would want to buy for ourselves. These cars are more than worthy of a new garage, and we’re thrilled to be able to share our picks with the readers each week. Here is a list of cars to check out as we roll into the first week of May.

1965 GT350 Cobra Caravan Car

Unfortunately, the first ever championship win for an American manufacturer didn’t really get the press it deserved at the time. With larger races taking precedence at the time followed by reviews of upcoming models, the Shelby win was all but drowned out of the automotive news. Carroll Shelby, however, has never been one to take these sorts of things lying down. Taking matters into his own hands, he assembled a caravan of championship cars carried by a 42-foot trailer to tour 12 cities in just four weeks.

1976 Pontiac Trans Am: A Rare Survivor

1971 marked the first year of the 455-cid engines for the Trans Am. Originally the standard and only option was the HO version of the engine, producing 335-horsepower. However, many changes were implemented over the years. This included a slow reduction in power and the introduction of the SD configuration of the engine. Although not all of the changes could be considered progress by some standards, keeping the 455-cid engines in production proved to be quite the task. Celebrating the brand’s 50th anniversary, the 455 made its final appearance in 1976. In total less than 8,000 455 Trans Ams were produced for its final year of production. Although the 1976 455 Trans Am proved to be more popular than ever at the time, finding one today in good condition with a numbers matching drivetrain can be difficult.

Big Oly Is Heading To Auction

One of the most famous innovations of the great Parnelli Jones came behind the back of co-driver Bill Stroppe. Secretly sharing his design with Stroppe mechanic Dick Russell, the pair began building a Bronco that would go on to change Baja racing forever. Initially upset by the deception of his team sneaking around behind his back, Bill Stroppe quickly saw the extreme potential in Jones’ designs and jumped on board. This decision would lead them to victories in 1971, 1972, 1973, and 1974.

1967 Chevrolet Chevelle: A True 138 Code Car

At the top of the line for the 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle, the SS was one of the most highly sought after GM cars of the muscle car era and it still is. Unfortunately, GM was pretty spotty about denoting the cars high-performance heritage in the VIN and body tags which resulted in a lot of cars being rebadged and successfully passed off as an SS. However, with pre-1969 model years, a 138-VIN code made identifying the real deal pretty easy but with cars such as this one being offered by Raleigh Class
ic Car Auctions the included 138-VIN code is unnecessary. This is 100-percent a true SS car as verified by its VIN and its extensive almost obsessively kept records and documentation.

1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Restomod

At this point it doesn’t really matter anymore how this 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Hardtop was optioned from the factory. Under the ownership of the current owner it has undergone a ground up, frame off restoration that included the stripping, blasting, and recoating of every part of this car. Every nut, every bolt, and every part was then reassembled with meticulous scrutiny. On top of returning the car to a like new condition, the restoration process also included adding a ton of modern options.

2010 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Super Snake

Though very much different from the modern Super Snake design, the concept was actually created in 1967. In collaboration with Ford and Goodyear, Carroll Shelby created one of what was intended to be a line of 50 special edition GT500 models. Unfortunately, the 1967 GT500 Super Snake was deemed too expensive and only one was ever made. This one-of-one car has since changed hands several times and most recently sold at auction for $2.2-million.

The Tommy Boy 1967 GTX Badged Plymouth Satellite

Most people would probably agree that the most memorable moment in the movie is when the Deer that they had just hit and for some reason put in their backseat suddenly came out of its stupor from being hit by a Plymouth. After ripping the car apart, the gigantic Mule Deer postures on the deck lid of the car and bounds off into the night. Well that wasn’t this car. However, many of the other scenes were supposedly filmed with this car. Judging by its condition, it was most likely used as a stunt car to film some of the many tire screeching stunts throughout the movie.

1993 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 40th Anniversary Edition In Collectors Condition

Entering into its fourth generation, the Corvette of the 1990s was responsible for putting the American car on par with some of the world’s best super cars and at the top of the lineup was the revered ZR-1. To the tune of $31,683.00, the high performance package included a heavy duty braking system, a selective ride and handling package, low tire pressure warning, electronic air conditioning, specific side body panels, 17 x 9.5 front and 17 x 11 rear styled aluminum wheels, and an upgraded interior. At the heart of the ZR-1 is the 405-horsepower LT5 V8 engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. Chevrolet’s goal was to turn the Corvette into the fastest production car ever and the ZR-1 was the means.
