35 RARE Cars Produced in America. Who WOULDN’T Want #7?!
What makes cars so fascinating, outside of their obvious usefulness in our everyday lives, is that they are large collectibles. Really! While we may not have the money to go around collecting rare cars in our spare garage, we can definitely catalogue them on the internet. Today we are going to breeze through 35 of the rarest cars ever to be produced America. The rarity of each automobile you will read about will be insular. Some of these cars are rare intentionally while others are rare due to outside factors — such as a production freeze during World War II. Are you ready? Get your greaser jacket on, you’re not gonna believe what you see!
1963 Chrysler Turbine
Developed by Chrysler in the early ’60s, the ’63 Chrysler Turbine was a limited run vehicle that got incredible press. Chrysler showed these beautiful vehicles in malls all across the country. If you’ve ever heard one of these babies rev their engine then you’ll likely never forget it. Only nine still exist to this day.
1964 Ford GT40
Though considerably less famous than the Ferrari, the GT40 was Ford’s answer to the popular automobile. Only 107 of these cars were ever built and it’ll cost you a pretty penny to make one your own. In 2014 a Ford GT40 was sold at auction for just over $7 million dollars.
1958 Eldorado Brougham
Cadillac won’t be getting a ton of run on our rare list but we still have to include the Eldorado Brougham. Cadillac called this vehicle ‘America’s Dream Car’ but they priced it out of anyone’s reach. In 1958, when the car hit the pavement, you’d have to spend $14,000 to snag one — $5,000 more than a Rolls Royce at the time.
1901 – 1903 Oldsmobile Curved Dash Runabout
Casual car fans are probably wondering where the horses are that pull this thing. The ’01 – ’03 Oldsmobile Curved Dash Runabout is a lesson in classic beauty. It’s easy to forget how far we’ve come over the years. If you’re a car collector then you need to nab one of these babies. They sold for $650 back in 1901.
