The last week was a quite weak one when it comes to good price to value deals. It is because of the previous week had many online auction events around the globe and this time it was a resting week for the market. So all three picks goes to the online platform that never sleeps and sells the most cars each week, the US online platform Bring a Trailer.
Our top pick goes to the last Shelby model car built before Carroll Shelby terminated his contract with Ford in summer of 1969. Although the model year 1969 Mustang did not look as good as its predecessor, it is still a great looking muscle car. This one is presented in the beautiful Acapulco Blue over white vinyl and although it is powered by a replacement 351ci V8 engine, you simply can not find a manual Shelby GT cheaper. And it is a lot of car for the money. This one sold on the 5th of June for 59.850 USD including fees. (auction link)
The second pick is not a rare car, 48.987 of the Austin-Healey Bugeye, or in the Europe called Frogeye, examples were built. But it is an adorable ugly little classic sports car from the United Kingdom. I still can remember my first time with this one. I did not see the car coming, but I heard it: What a noise! And then an ugly little frog appeared. And it has only a 43 hp 948 ccm inline four. But it creates so many smiles for the driver and for everybody who sees it passing by. I always wanted to buy one, but unfortunately never did. And this one sold on the 5th of June for 13.912,5 USD including the premium was a really nice example. Great buy, enjoy the fun with it!

And the third place goes to a rather inconsistent pick. It is maybe not a great price to value investment purchase. The car has not a correct engine and also the transmission, the steering wheel, the Grey Stone color and the wheels are not correct. So you could say, why would somebody pay on the 5th of June 176.250 USD including fees for an absolutely not original Porsche 356 Coupe? Because it is such a stunner, a beautiful example of the popular “bent window” series. And try to find a bent window 356 for less money these days, it is impossible. This car is a car to be enjoyed and driven! (auction link)
