1985 American LaFrance Triple Combination Fire Pumper

Est. Price: $25,000 – $35,000

Like we said, fire truck. This 1985 American LaFrance was on duty until late 2006 with the Commack Fire Department out of Long Island, New York, before it made the treacherous journey to the Cars of Dreams collection in Florida. Missing their partner, a fellow firefighter said that, “2-11-5 will be missed by all.”

1961 Chrysler 300G Convertible

Marking the final expression of famed designer Virgil Exner’s “Forward Look,” this classic Chrysler drop top was the seventh edition of the final series. Complete with 375-hp via a 413-cubic inch wedge-head V8, this badass Chrysler is a machine made for the road.

2006 Ford Shelby GT-H Convertible

Est. Price: $75,000 – $100,000

1956 Chevrolet Two-Ten Custom Two-Door Sedan

Est. Price: $100,000 – $125,000

This two-door sedan, or as we like to call them, “coupes,” was one of the very first two door vehicles of its kind. The original, given a revamp and a massive 650-hp V8, this two-tone teal Chevy is the ultimate road-going cruiser and a badass quarter mile monster, if you please.
