This month I spotted a nice low mileage Corvair at a very nice price. I also found a few Mustangs worth a closer look and a couple of Camaros. Of course, I had to go off the list and find a numbers matching big block Caprice.


1965 Chevrolet Corvair - $4,900

Description: This was my grandmother's car that was always garaged. The vehicle was driven to hair appointments and to the post office 3 blocks away. This is the perfect vehicle for the Corvair Connoisseur! 48,210 miles.

Comments: Now we are talking. This is the "odd-ball" from my short list. And this is the price I plan on looking at next summer when I get serious about getting a classic.


1967 Chevrolet Camaro - $13,900

Description: Harwell Motors is proud to offer an original unmolested 1967 Chevrolet Camaro. It has a great running 6 cyl engine, manual transmission, bucket seats with console, working AC, power steering, factory hub caps with white wall tires, and more. The body is very solid with nice driver paint. The interior is original and in excellent condition. The doors and windows all line up nicely and fit like they should. This would make a great candidate for a V8 conversion.

Comments: Wow, this is a nice looking Camaro. I would really like to see it in person. The A/C on a 6 cylinder is so tempting. I could see doing some mild work on this car. I would research installing a factory style black vinyl roof. That would just make the color pop. I would also love to add the RS grill with the hide-a-way headlights. Then a set of factory Rallye or Torq Thrust II wheels and this car would look awesome.


1965 Ford Mustang Coupe - $13,900

Description: Harwell Motors is proud to offer a restored 1964.5 Ford Mustang coupe. This car is a factory 260 V8 car, manual transmission, black/white pony interior, factory hub caps with white wall tires, factory spare and trunk mat, and more. The body is rust free with very nice paint. The underside is completely finished and extremely clean. It runs and drives very like new. This is a very nice, restored Mustang for a great price so don't miss out.

Comments: Did I ever tell you that I just love the Pony interior.


1966 Ford Mustang - $6,800

Description: Great little Mustang fixed up and ready to go. Engine runs and AC is cold; just a little TLC will make this a beauty.

Comments: Back to 6 cylinders with A/C. This looks like it could make a nice project car for me and my son.


1967 Ford Mustang Fastback - $16,900

Description: Harwell Motors is proud to offer a 1967 Ford Mustang fastback. This car has a great running 289, automatic transmission, power steering, bucket seats, factory hub caps, factory spare/jack and trunk mat, and more. This mustang runs and drives great.

Comments: Another rare find is a Mustang Fastback that is close to my $15K price range. This is like the Bullitt Mustang... only in the completely wrong color combination, wrong engine, and even the wrong year. Close enough!


1970 Chevrolet Camaro - $13,900

Description: Harwell Motors is proud to offer a 1970 Chevrolet Camaro. This car has a great running 350, automatic transmission, new Torque Thrust D wheels with new BFG tires, dual exhaust with flow masters, split front bumpers, bucket seats, cowl hood, and more. This car runs and drives great with plenty of power. The body is solid with nice driver paint. The interior shows well and is free of rips or tears.

Found: 6/2/2010

Comments: This car has a nice look to it. It needs lowering. About 1-1/2 inches out back and about 3 inches up front. I think that will give it a killer stance that will really show off those wheels and tires.


1968 Chevrolet Caprice 396 - $11,900

Description: Harwell Motors is proud to offer a 1968 numbers matching Chevrolet 396 Caprice. This car has the original 396 engine, turbo 400 automatic transmission, Air conditioning, 12 bolt rear end, power steering, power disc brakes, rally wheels with BFG tires, black vinyl top and more. The body is very solid with nice driver paint. The interior is original and shows well with some minor separation on the driver seat. It runs and drives great with plenty of power. If you are looking for a real big block caprice for a great price then look no further.

Comments: Wow, a numbers matching big block Caprice. You don't see these very often. I just love the idea of it. A big, luxury cruiser. I might consider parking that 396 for a crate 502 and lay some serious rubber down.


1966 Chevrolet Nova - $13,900

Description: Harwell Motors is proud to offer a 1966 Chevrolet Nova. This car has a great running 350, 4 speed transmission, 10 bolt rear end, dual exhaust, 15 inch Cragar wheels, custom bucket seats, and more. The body has driver quality paint with solid floors.

Comments: I love the fastback 66 & 67 Novas. I rarely see one in an affordable range. So I had to include this.
