This 1973 Dodge D200 was built up for Motor Trend’s Hot Rod Garage series and now makes use of a 12 valve Cummins turbodiesel six, the description going on to note that nearly every component has been either replaced or upgraded in support of the swap. Dyno’d at 300 HP and a massive 760 lb. ft. of torque at the wheels, the truck looks completely unassuming, but should be capable of smoking the tires down to nothing in no time flat.

This 1981 Toyota 4×4 SR5 (chassis JT4RN48D3B0025694) looks great in Ironman Stewart livery, and though not specifically mentioned, its presumed to have been restored at some point–paint, bodywork, interior, bed and even underpinnings are all simply too fresh looking.

Find it here on Classic Trader in Nuremberg, Germany for $396,410 USD.
This 1947 Studebaker M5 one-ton pick-up is dusty and dented but complete looking, and the seller says it’s very solid to boot.

This 1958 Jaguar XK150 FHC (chassis S834051) is offered as a matching-numbers and complete car with a free turning engine. Fresh out of storage, the seller admits to some sill rust, but says that the car remains repairable and mostly solid. Inside, carpets and leather seats (all four) look to remain in decent shape underneath accumulated dust, and if truly as structurally intact as claimed, the car should definitely be a good candidate for restoration. Find it here on eBay in McKinney, Texas with a $25k BIN.
This 1976 Fiat 1107 Nuova Campagnola is said to have been restored, and it looks very good in photos–likely just as good as the day it was delivered, if not better. A revised version of the MkI Campagnola first introduced in 1951, these second generation trucks lasted until 1987 and were also sold in both civilian and military spec. This one is almost too clean looking, but that could be easily fixed after a few hours of trail work. Find it here on mobile.de in Solt, Hungary for 10k euros (~$11,300 USD today) OBO.
