Top 15 Vintage Cars of all time
1. 1955-1963 MERCEDES-BENZ 300SL GULLWING
This model of Mercedes-Benz is my personal favourite. Coming with a whole classic look of a sports car, it is sure to steal anyone’s heart. The 2-door coupe admixed with the 2996 cc engine that produces over 212 hp stands a bowling history.
Back in the 50s on the launching of the US, the car was a prophet to be a streets race car. But still, it evolved as becoming a race car in reality. Although, the engineering had to remodify to bring the results. But it is also true that 300SL won two racing competitions. The 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Eifelrennen.
2. 1955-1975 CITROEN DS
The Citroen DS is our second vintage car. Some of the fans actually wish to own this one.
The car is characterized as one of the mid-sized luxury cars that comes with three variants. The variants are a 4-door sedan, a 5-door station wagon, and a 2-door convertible. Whatever the model you opt for, you would get engines anything ranging between the 1.9 L to 2.34 L.
The days when the car was launched in Europe, the place was caught in the black hole of recovering WWII. This unfortunately blocked the way for a successful sale.
3. 1955-1957 CHEVROLET BEL AIR
The Chevrolet Bel Air is a classic. This full-size car seized huge acclaim for its second generation launch. It was no surprise back then, as the car carried a stunning design. This helped it immediately to become the popular choice of the people.
Also, its price that stood at less than $2000 made it more tempting. Not to forget, the comfy interiors and the capacity of going 0 to 60 mph at only 12 sec.
4. 1974-1989 LAMBORGHINI COUNTACH
Without Lamborghini, no list of cars could be completed. So here we bring to you the stunning Lamborghini Countach. The car might look a little out of place in today’s contemporary scenario, but back then it was a star.
Launched somewhere in the 70s, this 2 door sports car helped many boys court the girls. It was fast, big and dead dropping hot.
And with the limited edition criteria, its popularity reached another height. It may look a little kitschy now, but back in the 80s, this 2-door sports coupe made girls shiver. It’s big, it’s fast, and it’s cool. Not only this, but the Lamborghini Countach was declared as the Top Sports Cars by Sports Car International during the 70s.
5. 1961-1969 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL
The car that would give you the feel of being the USA President is here on the list. It is none other than the Lincoln Continental. Continental easily attracted all the limelight for being featured in some big-budget movies like Spider-Man 2, The Matrix, Hit and Run, among others.
It is that model that is never going to go out of demand.
6. 1949 CADILLAC SERIES 62
From the time that Cadillac launched its 62 Series in 1949, the brand had an amazing time. This American manufacturer came with a 5.4 L engine and a whooping horsepower of 160.
The car reached another height of success with a recording sale of $55,643 for its heating option.
7. 1967-1970 TOYOTA 2000GT
It is the tale of those times when Toyota and Yamaha joined hands after the initial design was decided by Albrecht Goertz, a German designer.
With its sleek design, the car falls into the classic category. Coming with a 2000GT engine, the car holds 150.
The vehicle in 1967 became the winner of the Fuji 24-Hour Race competition. Although not made for it, the car still succeeded.
