Dream Garage: The Car and Truck Auctions Wed Bid on Right Now

by admin

We’re in a golden age for vintage vehicles. Aside from the usual Corvettes and Mustangs that have held collectible status for decades, a whole generation of Radwood-era rides is finally getting its due (see the skyrocketing prices on ’90s Hondas, for example), along with other cars and trucks that have suddenly become enthusiast icons. Browsing today’s lineup of online car auctions gives you a front-row seat to all the action—and a relatively straightforward way to put one of these rides in your garage.



We scoured auction sites like Cars & Bids, Bring a Trailer, Hemmings, and more to put together a short list of some of the most intriguing vehicles up for grabs right now. See something you like? Bid on it. Not interested in our picks? Check back later—we’ll update this page with a fresh batch of car auctions every week.

The Best Car and Truck Auctions

1. 1990 Ford Bronco II 4×4

Full-size 4x4s are plenty capable, but they take up a lot of space. Need a vintage truck that’s easier to park? This Bronco II might be your answer. It looks especially sharp with its two-tone paint, massive rear windows, and original 15-inch alloy wheels. Compared to its full-size brethren, it’ll be a lot easier to wheel around town, but it’s a true 4×4, and that means it’s no slouch on the trail, either.

Search for hot hatches and you’ll easily find lots of info on the usual suspects, like the Volkswagen Golf GTI or the Honda Civic Si. You probably won’t find much about the Innocenti De Tomaso Turbo, but that’s part of its charm—here’s a hot hatch that nobody else will have (or even know about). Its Daihatsu-sourced turbocharged three-cylinder engine isn’t exactly powerful, but the car weighs a paltry 1,600 pounds, so 70 horsepower is plenty of oomph to get it moving. Plus, it has been babied for its entire life, and reportedly shows just 25,000 miles on the odometer.

3. 1991 Land Rover Defender 127 Ambulance

With its cavernous rear shell attached to the legendary Defender chassis, this truck is catnip for overlanders. It spent time with the British military and the Irish Civil Defense before moving to private ownership, and its current owner is selling to—of course—make room for another Land Rover. It runs, drives, and the rear cargo area is begging to be turned into a camper. Added bonus: Its civil defense color scheme really makes it stand out.

4. 1968 Toyota 2000GT

This Toyota is one very special car. It’s one of just 351 total produced, and one of only 109 export models equipped with left-hand drive. Each 2000GT was assembled by hand, and with their flowing lines and distinctive front end (including pop-up headlights), they’re still a marvel to behold today. Imported to the U.S. in 2013 after spending time in a museum in Japan, this example is in pristine condition and would be a stellar addition to any collection (but you’ll need some serious cash to get it).

5. 1952 International LC-162 COE Wrecker

Sure, there are dings and rust on the body, the tires are ancient and leaking, and the engine is non-operable (to name just a few of this truck’s flaws), but to the right kind of enthusiast, this wrecker has a ton of potential. Mid-century cab-over-engine trucks are rare beasts, and with a thorough mechanical refresh—you can leave the patina alone—this rig could become a real head-turner.
