Cars for Sale

We always have a unique selection of collectible cars for sale. Why not take a look?



1917 Cadillac Model 55 Phaeton 

This car has an almost unbelievable story to tell. It was purchased new in Cayuga, Ontario and that owner kept the car until 1951, sold it almost next door to a family in Caledonia, Ontario, and that family had the car until I acquired it. We have all the names and a build sheet from Cadillac. It has its original owners manual in the LF door, the original Cadillac script jack, its roll up tool kit, the hubcap wrench, wheel wrench and crank are still with the car. It has just over 20,000 actual miles.  It was stored away in a container in 1959. It has had one paint job and the roof replaced in its 100 year lifetime. The old V8 started right up. The car has its original dual exhaust system and the original selling dealer's (Hyslop Bros. Toronto) dealer tag still on the car. We have local Mennonites replace the leather in the two bottom seat cushions, perfectly matching the original leather seat backs which are in remarkable original condition. Besides all this local history, these Cadillacs have their own war time story to tell as they were the favourite car of all the allies. WWI was basically being fought with horses and mules, and they wanted reconnaissance vehicles, ambulances, and staff cars. After testing all the vehicles makes of this period, Cadillac was their outstanding choice.

1928 Cadillac Sport Phaeton 

This car was a first place winner at Amelia Island some years ago. It has been maintained to that same level of showmanship.

This was the first year of Harley Earl redesigning the Cadillac, and what a job he did -- lengthening, lowering, and sculpting the car. Everyone who looks at this car thinks its a 1930s model. It has the wonderful "gangster" look to it with its low sloping forward roofline.

All the options you see on the car were standard on the Sport Phaeton. The truck contains all the side curtains and attachments, plus all the roof support pieces. 

When you buy this car, what do you need to do to it? The answer is nothing except sit back in a chair next to it and admire its beauty and gorgeous color scheme. 








1947 Studebaker Commander Convertible

Ever see another one? This car was fully restored by the Shrock Bros. in Pennsylvania who are acknowledged as the best Studebaker restorers there are. Just after restoration it won first place Chocolate Town award at Hershey, PA. This is their highest award possible to win. All NOS parts were used in the restoration and the car drives even better than in looks. It has a radio, 3 speed manual with overdrive transmission and nice power comes from its 6 cylinder engine. The power roof is Haartz cloth and has the wonderful divided glass rear window. Car has outstanding original red leather seats. Studebaker leapt ahead of all its competitors being the first to bring out an all-new car following WWII. If you want one of the most desirable Studebakers possible to own - Buy this one!

The chrome and stainless trim, convertible top and boot are all in excellent condition. The seats and door pads equally so. The Mexico Red paint with beige top and the interior matching makes this car a standout.

1952 Chevrolet Belair 2 door hardtop

The Belair hardtop line debuted in 1950 and was an instant success. After all, when you have a totally dependable car and make it a top style model, Chevy was sure to have a winner.

This beautiful car was sold new in California. Later in its life there, as gentleman established a Belair museum and this was the first of 18 Belairs to go into the meseum as show pieces.
Over $40,000 was spent at that time to make this restoration a show-stopper. Its stunning Bittersweet Orange bottom colour, topped with a Beach White roof makes you just step back to look and lust over it. Matching colours, done just like the factory compliment the interior. The headliner with all its chrome strips is magnificent.Top it off with a powerglide automatic transmission, pin striped wheels, front & rear bumper overlays, Custom radio, chrome splash shields, clock, etc.. and the rarest of all accessories: a coolant water filter under the hood (genuine GM accessory for that year and extremely rare).

1956 Ford Country Sedan

The most amazing wagon you will ever find. 43000 miles and original paint in excellent condition. A fantastic looking California car that could be parked in any showroom. The all original chrome and trim is remarkable.
Rare 8 passenger model. The side trim on these cars were wide side mouldings for the 8 passenger, and if a 6 passenger the trim was quite narrow.
This has a powerful Thunderbird V8 engine mated to a 3 speed standard transmission. Custom radio, spotlamp, dual mirrors, and full wheelcovers round out the options. The coral paint and patterned Buckskin interior combination is stunning.

Here is the story on this car as told tome by Chris, the owner of Sarasota Collector Cars:
The car was purchased new by Murry Wilson, father of the Beach Boys. The car was used by Brian and his brothers in on of their films as well. I have no proof of these statements at this time, but they all make sense as the car was put in a California museum in 1971 and sat there for over 30 years on display. 
Eventually that museum was closed and the car was purchased by Grants Classic Car Museum in Loch Haven, Pennsylvania. It remained on display there until 2017, when they auctioned off all their vehicles in an invitation-only event.
Sarasota Collector Cars of Sarasota, Florida purchased the car, and I bought it from them and brought it to Canada in April of 2018.

Length: 197.6"
