The Panoz AIV Roadster is an all-american lightweight roadster with European roots. The Panoz family purchased the rights to a defunct sportscar manufacturer in the late 1980s, and after much retooling and essentially a start-from-scratch redesign, the Panoz Roadster was born. The first iteration was stainless steel and utilized a 5.0L Ford V8 and did not come with any top, radio, heater, or air conditioning. In 1996, the AIV, which stands for Aluminum Intensive Vehicle, was born. It used largely the same styling as the first-gen roadster, but the car was now 70% aluminum, weighing in at only 2500 pounds, and a new 4.6L 32-valve aluminum V8 from the Mustang Cobra was shoehorned in, bumping the power up to 305bhp. Additionally, they created a surprisingly easy-to-install top with side curtain windows, plus luxury amenities like a radio, heat, and air conditioning. They were hand assembled in Braselton, Georgia, and to this day remain as one of the most unique American cars ever produced. A total of 176 AIV Roadsters were sold to the public during the 3.5-year production run. Unlike most limited production hand-built sports cars, these are actually incredibly reliable, simple to maintain, and are very pleasant to drive. Parts are easy to source given that it is mostly Ford components. Many critics of the Plymouth Prowler say that this is what the Prowler should have been.

This particular Roadster is finished in a gorgeous shade of Maroon metallic with black interior. The color is a deep, dark burgundy and almost looks purple depending on the light. According to our database, out of the 176 AIV Roadsters, only four were finished in this color and all of them were 1998s. There was another one listed as Maroon produced in 1999, but it is a very different shade with more of a copper/orange tint. 

Owner's manual, two keys, fabric top, and Panoz leather storage case for the top components are all included with the sale. The top and top components are all in excellent shape and fit properly. It is original paint and has a clean Carfax and no stories. The car came out of long term storage, so we inspected the car fully and performed our usual service and refreshing. We mounted new Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2 tires, repaired the odometer, changed oil/filter, brake fluid flush, charged A/C system, replaced radiator and associated hoses, new idler pulley and serpentine belt, and new stainless brake lines. In addition, we removed the awful black "elephant ears" stone guards on the rear fenders and installed Xpel paint protection flim, which gives these cars a much cleaner and more modern look. 

This is an incredibly rare and timeless car, and it is ready to be enjoyed by its new owner.

This particular Roadster is finished in Red/Tan, and as with all 1998s, has the Roush 5-spoke wheels. All books, two keys, Panoz car cover, and Panoz leather storage case for the top components are all included with the sale. The top and top components are all in excellent shape and fit properly. It is original paint and has a clean Carfax and no stories. We just mounted brand new tires and had the fluids changed and A/C serviced in addition to a thorough checkover and servicing of all needed items in preparation for sale. According to our database, the red examples make up about 23% of overall production, but it is unknown the split between black and tan interior.

Our example is in fantastic condition, fully serviced, with all accessories and a fresh detail. It is ready for the new owner to enjoy.

This particular example was originally sourced for the owner's personal collection, but due to lack of time to actually drive it, we are putting it up for sale. It is finished in rare and beautiful metallic green, which appears blue from some angles - it is a subtle color-shift metallic. The paint is all original to our knowledge except for the rear fenders which we had refinished to eliminate the rock chips. Instead of replacing the ugly black elephant-ear stone guards we had the rear fenders covered in clear film, after allowing the paint to cure for the requisite 30 days to fully harden.

The previous owner had the odometer fail at around 3250 miles, and for some reason replaced it with a unit that read 2455 miles, thereby branding the title as non-actual mileage. The reasoning escapes me, but we have the documentation of continual mileage, and the cumulative total mileage is less than 4000. 

We have full service records from the previous owner, and we also had it gone through once we bought it to ensure fluids were up to date, to fix a minor oil leak, and service the air conditioning. All functions work properly and the car is fully serviced and ready for the next owner to enjoy. The car comes with the factory soft top and leather bag, Panoz branded floor mats plus the base floor mats, one key, and the owner's manual booklet.

Check out this iconic Mopar! Released in 1997 to rave reviews, the Prowler was sold out and on a waiting list status. In 1997 purple was the only available color, and for 1999, the second year of production, Plymouth offered additional colors including Yellow, which was the rarest of the standard Plymouth colors (Red, Yellow, Black, Purple, Silver). In addition, they bumped the power from 214hp to 243hp, and added other improvements including speed-sensitive volume control.

This car is in all original condition including the original tires. Purchased new in Louisiana and relocated to Ohio, this Prowler comes with all the original accessories - two keys and fobs, window sticker, books, sales brochure, and Prowler soundtrack CD. 

This is a great collectible driver and just in time for spring!

Check out this great read on the history of the all-aluminum Prowler and how and why it came into existence:

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1957-vintage-speedster-356-replica-2/

Porsche 356 Speedster Replica by Vintage Speedsters. The car is powered by a 1,915cc Volkswagen flat-four paired with a Rancho Performance four-speed manual transaxle. The odometer shows 6,500 Kilometers which is just over 4k miles. Finished in White with Martini Racing decals over Blue interior. A blue removable soft top with side windows and a tonneau cover are also included. The wheels are 15-inch solid aluminum fitted with 185/65 Pirelli tires.

This 356 Replica runs and drives great. It is comfortable on the freeway doing 65 mph. The car was built to be driven and draws a lot of attention wherever it goes. The Martini decals show some patina and give the car a period-correct presence. The car features a bluetooth Retro Sound stereo with nice sounding speakers. This is a very nice replica of the Porsche 356 and is ready to be enjoyed. Titled as a 1960 Volkswagen.

1962 Porsche 356B 1600 S Cabriolet T6 - Incredibly well-documented example with original motor and transmission. Produced 6-27-1962, this cabriolet was originally outfitted in Champagne Yellow with black leather interior. In 1987 the car was repainted to the current red color. The original motor #702956 is still in the car, and in 1999 was treated to a complete refresh by noted specialist Sports Car Factory of Thompson, Ohio. The mileage at the time was 136,900. This car has extensive service and ownership history dating back to 1970, and has been in Ohio in the hands of a single owner from 1981 until just last year. While the mileage is recorded consistently in the receipts, and we believe it to be original, the vehicle title shows non-actual mileage. It appears that the car crossed the 100k mark early on in its life, but then was only driven an average of 1k miles per year from 1980-current. In addition to the stack of service records included are the Certificate of Authenticity, verifying the matching numbers, the original Owner's Handbook and Service Manual, and the original Driver's Manual. Cosmetic condition is good to excellent inside and out, with no rust or corrosion issues. Mechanically the car is completely sorted, which is no surprise given the impeccable maintenance schedule of the previous owner. The car drives incredibly well, and to our knowledge needs nothing to go enjoy. www.switchcars.com
Price: SOLD

This is a great opportunity for a matching-numbers 356 SC for the buyer who wants a mechanically fresh car to enjoy and drive. The SC for 1964 came with a 90-hp 1600cc motor with dual Solex carbs.

The car has come to us from its most recent owner of 13 years. It left the factory in Signal Red, but was refinished to the owner's taste about 10 years ago in its current color. The car also had comprehensive rust repair and undercoating performed at the time of the repaint, including a new driver's side floor pan. The color is beautiful, but the paint job is best described as driver quality and does show some flaws.

The owner did most of the maintenance himself, and the receipts include a large stack of Stoddard parts receipts to verify his work. In addition, he had the motor rebuilt less than 100 miles ago by German Tech, Inc., in January of 2016. The receipt for this service is in the documents section on our website. Additional service done to the car over his 13-year care included a new clutch and flywheel, new Sachs front and rear shocks, complete rebuild of the Solex carbs, rebuilt distributor, H4 headlights with upgraded dash lights, new fuel sender, fuel pump, and fuel cock, refurbished horns, new hood seal and window weather stripping, new window washing jets and tubing, window frames rechromed, new rear view mirror, new carpet set, side and rear panels, headliner, and visors, and all gauges rebuilt along with a quartz clock conversion performed by North Hollywood Speedometer. 

The engine and transmission are all matching numbers as verified by the Certificate of Authenticity, and the car is listed in the 356 Registry. The actual mileage is unknown. Clear title in hand - buyers are welcome to have a PPI performed at a shop of their choice.

We have just acquired this very original and late production 1965 Porsche 356C 1600 Reutter Coupe from its owner of almost 25 years. Finished in Signal Red exterior over Black Leatherette with just the single option of Ventilated Chrome Wheels, and unmodified from original specification. The vehicle has the original Matching Numbers engine and transmission as verified with a Porsche Production Specifications sheet (previously known as a Certificate of Authenticity) which is included with the vehicle. Service records from the prior owner are also included, showing a major service in 2017 of nearly $8k to bring the vehicle up to driving condition after a period of long-term storage. Mileage is displayed at 18,250 but is not documented prior to 1995 so we can only assume that it's not actual mileage. The car is completely rust free, but it does appear that there was some prior damage repair to the front end so it is not all original paint. Paint gauge readings are within acceptable ranges and show no evidence of excessive filler or other hidden sins. 

This will be a fantastic, unmodified driver to add to your collection and enjoy as often as you wish.
