1965 Mustang GT
1965 Mustang GT "fastback" 2+2
The Ford Mustang was introduced at the New York World's Fair in 1964. Over 20,000 Mustangs were sold in the first week of public release. Soon after, buyers demanded improved handling and performance. In response, Ford announced the GT ("Grand Turismo") option in April 1965. The GTs had larger engines and gas tanks, heavier suspension and springs, and better steering.

This gorgeous 1965 GT fastback is a highly optioned, completely restored Shelby clone. It has beautiful blue paint, a black interior, Rally pac, custom Mustang floor mats, dual exhaust pipes that exit the rear valence through decorative chrome trumpets, front fog lights, automatic transmission, disc brakes, and factory air conditioning. The rear seats fold forward to create a two-seater with a spacious interior cargo compartment. Under the hood is a 289 V8 engine, 4 barrel carburator, a chrome Monte Carlo bar, and a Shelby export brace. The engine compartment is painted the blue body color. There are five styled steel wheels with P205/70R 14 BF Goodrich Radial AT tires. A professionally installed Pioneer AM/FM cassette stereo system is the only "non-original" feature in the car. The vehicle is garage-kept, is routinely serviced, and received its 2001 state inspection in August. Needless to say, this car turns heads wherever it goes!! Vintage GT Mustangs in this fine condition are prized by collectors and car enthusiasts around the world.

It is interesting to note that while Ford chose the name "Mustang" to reflect the spirited image of the P-51 US World War II fighter plane named the Mustang, the public immediately associated the car with the untamed wild horse of the American West. Ford quickly adopted the image of a wild galloping horse as the symbol of this classic car.

1970 Chevrolet Corvette
1970 Chevrolet Corvette "Sting Ray" LT1 convertible
so you like fast cars, huh? this one's a rocket!!...

In 1953 General Motors introduced the Chevrolet Corvette, the first American made sports car. It was a stylish two-seat convertible, built by hand and powered by a 235 cu.-in. 6-cylinder engine that generated 150 horsepower. After many decades of large, lumbering automobiles, GM decided that America was ready for a smaller, faster vehicle to compete with the European nameplates like Jaguar and MG.

Although sales climbed in 1954, they fell off dramatically in 1955 setting off rumors that the Corvette might be a short-lived automotive experiment. Zora Arkus-Duntov, an engineer on the Corvette team since 1953 and a former European road racer, set out to give Corvette better performance and better handling. Without his help, Corvette production would have been halted. Corvette's evolution into a 'true' sports car actually began in 1955 when a 265 cu.-in. V8 that generated 195 horsepower was offered. Driving a prototype V8-powered Corvette, Zora Arkus-Duntov set a new record at Daytona at just over 150 miles per hour. Meanwhile, Ford introduced the Thunderbird which outsold the Corvette by a ratio of 23 to one. To counter this, Corvette received its first major styling update in 1956 and a performance boost in 1957. The 283 cu.-in. V8 was modified with fuel injection to produce an unprecedented 283 horsepower. In 1958 the fuel-injected 283 cu.-in. V8 was producing up to 290 horsepower.

In 1960, Corvette production topped the 10,000 mark for the first time. It was now carving out a solid niche in the market and becoming a part of American culture. In each year between 1960 and 1962, performance and styling enhancements made it more and more appealing. In 1962, engine displacement was increased to 327 cu.-in. and top horsepower was up to 360.

In 1963, Chevrolet unveiled its all-new concept -- the "Stingray". This was the first time Corvette was available as a hardtop coupe as well as the traditional convertible. Both featured a streamlined appearance and improved passenger accomodations. It was the first year for concealed headlamps. The American public loved the Sting Ray because they were fast machines that looked supersonic even when parked. The Sting Ray was the automotive success story of the year. Chevrolet had to add a second shift to its St. Louis, Missouri assembly plant to keep up with demand, and dealers kept buyers waiting months for their cars to be built. By the end of the model year, Corvette production would surpass the 20,000-unit milestone. The Sting Ray continued the Corvette evolution through the mid-sixties.

Corvette received its most radical styling change in 1968. Bearing a striking resemblance to Chevrolet`s "Mako Shark" concept vehicle, it literally changed the way people looked at cars. The original high-performance LT1 engine, a 350 cu.-in. which generated 370 horsepower, was introduced in 1970. An outstanding example of the 1970 LT1 is presented here. It is a documented 'numbers matching' 4-speed manual transmission convertible with bronze paint, a black interior, and a white top. As you can see from the photos, it is a stunning automobile. This is a rare and desirable car as there are only 88 LT1 convertibles known to remain in existence.

The Corvette has a fascinating place in Americana. This sports car changed the landscape of the American road in the middle of the twentieth century. The post-war generation fell in love with the Corvette, and that love affair is still going strong.

1974 GMC Jimmy Sierra Grande truck
Extremely nice numbers matching 1974 GMC Jimmy Sierra Grande, originally from Arizona. Runs and runs and drives great with a 350 V8 automatic. Power steering, power brakes, duel exhaust, full time 4 wheel drive, 12 bolt rear end, brand new tires. Body is incredible, no patch panels, beautiful two-toned paint. These trucks are very hard to find with the original motor, seats and chrome. This truck can go as a convertible and the bed rails are perfect. White hard top can be installed for the cold weather. This is pretty close to what you'd be seeing in a GMC showroom in 1974. Could very well be the best truck you've ever owned.

This is an extremely clean charcoal and white plastic Zenith tube radio, model Y513, which looks beautiful and plays great.

Zenith moved to a more radical (for Zenith) design approach later in the 1950s and early 1960s with more streamlined "Jet Age" cabinets.

This radio has been restored electronically. All tubes, capacitors and resistors have been checked and replaced if necessary. It has its original back and factory label with model number and tube layout; it has an internal antenna and plays with unusually good fidelity, picking up stations clearly across the dial without any hum.

DAIRY QUEEN ice cream illuminated advertising clock by PAM
DAIRY QUEEN ice cream illuminated advertising clock by PAM
The soft serve ice cream formula was first developed in 1938 by John Fremont "Grandpa" McCullough (1871‒1963) and his son Bradley. They convinced friend and customer Sheb Noble to offer the product in his ice cream store in Kankakee, Illinois. On the first day of sales, Noble dished out more than 1,600 servings of the new dessert within two hours. Noble and the McCulloughs went on to open the first Dairy Queen store in 1940 in Joliet, Illinois. While this Dairy Queen is no longer in operation, the building is still located at 501 N Chicago St.

Dairy Queen (DQ) was an early pioneer of food franchising. Since 1940, DQ has used a franchise system to expand its operations globally, expanding its 10 stores in 1941 to 100 by 1947, 1,446 in 1950, and 2,600 in 1955. The first store in Canada opened in Estevan, Saskatchewan, in 1953. The red Dairy Queen symbol was introduced in 1959. The company became International Dairy Queen, Inc. (IDQ) in 1962. Dairy Queen was a fixture of social life in small towns of the Midwestern and Southern United States during the 1950s and 1960s.

Offered here is a rare vintage electric lighted Dairy Queen ice cream advertising clock manufactured by the PAM clock company.

Sinclair gasoline gas station ULTRAVIOLET RAY Sanitized REST ROOMS porcelain display sign
Sinclair gasoline gas station ULTRAVIOLET RAY Sanitized REST ROOMS porcelain display sign
For a very short while back in the early 1950s, Sinclair gas stations hung a contraption from their restroom ceilings that produced an ultraviolet ray which they claimed would kill germs and sanitize the lavatory. Apparently it was blamed for several health problems and was quickly discontinued. Production of these signs, which were manufactured at that time, was also discontinued.
Offered here is an extremely rare Sinclair gasoline and oil gas station restroom sign announcing the ultraviolet ray sanitized rest room. It is single-sided, porcelain on metal and has all of the original grommets. It is dated 1950 at the bottom. It is in high grade condition with excellent color and gloss and is one of only a handful known to exist.

Tang orange breakfast drink jar
Tang orange breakfast drink jar
Tang is an orange fruit-flavored drink, originally formulated by General Foods Corporation scientist William A. Mitchell in 1957. It was first marketed in powdered form in 1959. Tang was famously utilized in some early NASA manned space flights. In 1962, when Mercury astronaut John Glenn conducted eating experiments in orbit, Tang was selected for the menu, and it was also used during some Gemini flights. Sales of Tang were poor until NASA used it on John Glenn's Mercury flight and the subsequent Gemini missions. Since then, it was closely associated with the U.S. manned spaceflight program, leading to the misconception that Tang was invented for the space program. Presented here is an early Instant Tang orange breakfast juice drink mix glass jar.

VENTURE INTO SPACE booklet
VENTURE INTO SPACE booklet
The United States space program began in the mid-1950s when the Air Force began working on satellite systems for reconnaissance efforts and for scientific advancement. It was a widely held belief that the country which first made significant achievements in space travel would be recognized as the world leader in military and scientific pursuits.

Many feel that the United States did not exploit its initial postwar advantage over Soviet technology. There is evidence to support the conclusion that American science could have pushed the nation into the space age ahead of the Russians. The key event was the successful launch of a satellite, and the U.S. failed to take the initiative. There would have been enormous advantages to such an undertaking: enhanced national prestige, a lead in the space race, and benefits to national security. The U.S. was dismayed when the Soviets put up Sputnik in October 1957 and in the furor that followed, an epidemic of 'space fever' swept our nation.

At the height of the space race, the American Oil Company published this beautifully illustrated informational booklet. As the title suggests, it deals with outer space and our attempts to explore and conquer this vast and unknown territory. When unfolded, it becomes a huge wall-size poster.
