While there is no shortage of Moskvich/IZh 412s floating around in Russia, one of these compact sedans are an unthinkably rare sight in the US. The seller of this 412 claims it is the only privately owned example of the vehicle in the entire country—a wild claim which we completely believe.
Volkswagen was pleased to announce in 1973 that you no longer had to worry about the reason you hadn't yet bought one of their "station wagons".
Pickup trucks are usually the featured vehicles of hard luck tales put to music, but in this case of this vintage commercial it's a 1973 Mazda RX3 wagon.
While some might argue an old Volvo doesn't look quite right unless it has a little rust on it, we prefer the looks of this original 1972 1800E currently listed on Ebay.
If you find yourself asking "What's a Matador?" it appears you are not alone. From the looks of this self deprecating AMC commercial the company had accepted that even two years into the model run, people still didn't know what a Matador was.
Oldsmobile thought their 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88 was tough but they didn't want you to take their word for it. Instead they got a tough talking spokesman dressed up as a construction worker to explain it to you.
Although any Volvo 1800ES is a pretty rare find, an example with only 90 original miles on it like this one is beyond rare. We sincerely doubt any other 1800ES in the world has traveled so few miles and remained in such perfect example as the orange car seen here.
Get rid of the attractive spokeswoman and luxury backdrop, according to this classic Volvo ad the way to sell your car in 1973 was with involved diagrams and nerdy engineers in white coats. Instead of "fluff", other car makers started talking about disc brakes and strong bodies while trying to build the kind of car…
Even the great Mopar muscle cars were not immune to the effects of increased emission devices and rising fuel costs in. This 1973 Dodge Challenger Rallye was, like so many vehicles of this vintage, a significantly less powerful version of the famous muscle car produced a few years earlier.
The 1973 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona that Richard Hammond drove in a season 12 episode of Top Gear is going up for sale at a British auction in May. To celebrate the Ferrari Daytona's 40th anniversary, Top Gear featured the Daytona in a race from Portofino in the Italian Rivera to Saint Tropez, France. Racing against…
In the words of host Bud Lindemann "In keeping with this recreational vehicle type show" Car and Track would occasionally take a vacation from the test track and head off road. That is exactly what we see in this week's 1973 Jeep CJ5 "off track" test.
By 1973 the muscle car was almost entirely dead. A few cars fought through increased emissions requirements and fuel concerns to try and keep the muscle car flame burning. Buick built the Century GS455 to be one of them. According to this vintage Car & Track review, they did the best they could.
Welcome to Found Off The Street, our look at cars found on the cape that rust liked so much it decided to summer there; Cape Cod, MA. Today we have a 1973 Volvo P1800ES
The fact that no specific mileage figures are mentioned in this ad for a pre-big-bumper Celica shows that it's probably a pre-Arab Oil Embargo release. This makes this "economy car" pitch for the sporty-for-its-time first-gen Celica a bit puzzling.
Would any self-respecting serial killer ply his trade in a "Super Banana Yellow" Dodge Tradesman? In this case, definitely.
Back in 1973, a brand-new XJ6 listed at about $9,500. For that price you got 150 horsepower, four-wheel disc brakes, Lucas Electrics, and plenty of sophistication. For less than half that price, you could have a 154-horse LTD Brougham!
Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. The ITRF will never run out of great cars!
