Skylite Roof Turbodiesel: 1991 Toyota LiteAce 4WD in the US

This 1991 Toyota LiteAce 4WD (chassis CM400034075) is a final-year production code M wagon which appears to have amenities and options consistent with high-level FXV trim. Powered by a 2C-T turbodiesel four, these vans are quite capable in terms of off road ability thanks to low-range gearing and good departure and approach angles, and this one has been lifted substantially and fitted with large all-terrain tires on aftermarket wheels. Outside of the roof rack and suspension, other modifications appear to be minimal and condition looks good with the metric equivalent of 73k miles listed. It also has the optional Skylite panoramic roof, and with the period-style custom graphics and lift, the van definitely has a very cool look about it. Find it here on Craigslist in Phoenix, Arizona for $20k.

V4, Velour & Soccer Balls: 1973 Saab 96

This 1973 Saab 96 (chassis 96732002630) caught our eye with its complementary burgundy paint and cool OEM “soccer ball” alloy wheels, and the seller claims just 28k and change miles and no rust. Further described as “not a show piece, but a Class A driver that’s nice to take to shows,” the car photographs very well throughout, with a light, worn-in (but not out) appearance that probably speaks to careful upkeep over the past 45 years, and the seller includes a handful of promising looking undercarriage photos too. The car is said to run great and “do everything it should,” though apparently that excludes keeping time–the clock doesn’t work, but everything else reportedly does. Find it here on eBay in Fremont, New Hampshire with reserve not met. Special thanks to BaT reader Joe G. for this submission. Read More

Charity Success for The Smoking Tire’s Fox Body Mustang Auction

We were thrilled when Matt Farah (a.k.a. @TheSmokingTire) offered to sell his 1988 Ford Mustang LX SSP 5.0 at No Reserve on Bring A Trailer. But going one better, instead of selling the car and pocketing all the money, he decided to donate 50% of the winning bid to a charity of the new owner’s choosing. He thought that listing the car at No Reserve might be a risk, but it also encouraged early bidding, excitement, and discussion within the community. The result was an impressive sale at $65,000 to bidder @piston_club! This meant that $32,500 would be donated to the Peter Zippi Memorial Fund Inc, a small cat shelter specializing in high-risk, sick, and injured animals.

The car was originally sold in Vancouver, British Columbia and was imported to the US in 2000, when it moved to Idaho. It was then sold to a Utah owner with 49k miles in 2004. The seller’s aunt then bought the car in 2006 with 56k miles. In September 2018, she traded it in on a new Chevrolet truck without consulting her nephew, but he was able to track it down at the Chevy dealer and buy the Porsche shortly thereafter. 550 miles have since been added to the odometer, which now shows just over 82k miles. Recent maintenance includes an oil change, a new deck lid fan, new rear tires, and replacement horn fuses last month. The seller has another black 996 and is now offering this example with partial records, an owner’s manual, a clean Carfax report, and a Utah title. Read More

Three Alfa Romeo Giulietta Projects: Sprints and a Spider in Tennessee

This collection of project Alfa Romeo Giuliettas includes a pair of Sprint coupes and a red Spider, all three of which are summarized by the seller as ready for complete restoration. Nonetheless, condition still varies between the lot, and it seems as though at least two may have good potential. Each one is provided with a brief history as well, and the light blue example is said to have originated from California with registration documentation on hand. Along with the Spider, it’s said to be a matching-numbers car, and both seem relatively complete in terms of trim and equipment. The roughest of the bunch is the red Sprint, which is described as a European-specification car with a few Veloce upgrades, and photos that reveal heavy rust on what’s remaining of the rear end. Find them here, here and here on Craigslist in Savannah, Tennessee for between $19,500 and $39,500.
