Uncle Phil's top picks this week from the Unique Cars classifieds

1954 Buick Special 46C


Here is one that would go straight to the pool room. Just over 3100 46C Special’s were produced and this one hasn’t had anyone lay a hand on it. It’s totally original and looks t’riffic. The 46C convetible had a sizeable amount of grunt thanks to the 8 cylinders in its snout. And this one has travelled just 76,336 miles since rolling out the factory door. It has power steering, power brakes and even a powered roof and a shed load of factory accessories added to it. Finished in Carlsbad Black with a red interior, how good would this be on a summer night at the drive-in, roof down watching the big screen? Heaven.

1971 Alfa Romeo GTV 2000


Alfa -romeo -105

These old Alfa GTVs are what made the brand famous and good clean examples like this red beauty are rarer than rocking horse you-know-what. What’s more, offerings such as this car rarely come on the market and are usually traded privately. Powering this Series II is a 1.8-litre four and a five-speed manual gearbox driving the rear wheels. These GTVs are a real driver’s car and on the right road on the right day, there are few oldies that will give you so much pleasure.

1999 Fiat Coupe


Fiat -coupe

Yeah I know, a bit left field for me, but this Pininfarina penned Fiat isn’t a such bad thing and quite rare as well. It was originally a Pommy car, imported here with full compliance in 2003 and comes with original books, sales brochure and history. It even has touch up paint pens. Power is courtesy of a five-cylnder, two-litre Lancia donk with a five-speed manual bolted to it. The thing that really grabs me about this loveable Italian is its rarity and if you are thinking of investing in an older Italian car that won’t break the bank to buy, then this one is a good place to start.

1992 Ford Falcon EB


Ford -falcon -eb

There’s nothing better than buying an original and according to the ad this is the original Dick Johnson Racing EB Falcon – presumably the car Dick raced in the V8-only 1993 Touring Car Championship. If that’s the case, this car has significant historic value and whoever buys it should probably rip out the current 6-litre Nascar engine and flog it off to fund the restoration of the car to its original state. You might even get a fair bit of advice from Dick himself... if you ask nicely. Fully restored it will certainly be worth a pretty penny or two.
