Jim did an absolutely fabulous job from start to selling of my husbands car. He took, what was a very stressful situation for me, and made it very easy. He handled every detail as if he knew my husband personally. I highly recommend his services for selling your prized vehicles.(Sheryl, Birmingham, AL)

I highly recommend Jim with Classic-Car Store to help you find your next classic vehicle. Jim was instrumental in helping me find my 1966 Ford Mustang GT. The experience was so successful that I asked him to help me find my next "forever" car. Jim is very responsive, follows up and has excellent communication skills.   

THANK YOU very much.... 5 STAR GOOGLE RATING by Dennis Lareau, FL



I have been a hot rod guy since a kid. One car I have always wanted was a 1936 Chevrolet 5 Window Coupe that was ready to go. I found one that was close to my dream car on Classic Car Store’s website. All steel body built from the ground up as a Pro-Touring car and built right. Jim was very helpful, specific and told me the good and bad about the car. I decided to buy it, bought a one-way ticket from Oklahoma to Birmingham, AL. I hoped the car was what it was supposed to be. Jim picked me up at the Airport and took me to the Owner, an elderly gentleman in a small country town. The car was everything represented, much nicer than I expected. After getting the banking handled I made a road trip back home to Oklahoma stopping and seeing a couple of friends on the way back. Not one problem with the car. Overall it was an excellent experience, especially when you are buying a car from photos and getting information from someone you don’t know. If you want a straight shooter when buying a Classic Car, Jim is the man. Thank you, DF-OK


Hey Jim, I got the ’70 SS 454 yesterday.  It made the trip on the transporter just perfect.  It has been raining so I haven’t been able to get it out to drive yet, but hopefully tomorrow.  It is a beautiful car and some of my neighbors and friends can’t quit talking about it.  Thanks for your hospitality when I flew down to look at the car.  I am glad it was like you said and I think we both ended up pleased.  I definitely will refer you if any of my friends are looking for a classic car.  Thanks again.  JS, MA

1957 Bentley S1 Continental Fastback
This extremely exclusive 1957 Bentley S1 Continental Fastback is one just 431 produced and one of the finest high-speed grand tourers ever built. In perhaps the model s most striking coachwork, the lightweight fastback by H.J. Mulliner, the S1 is also one of the most beautiful of all postwar Bentleys. Following the success of the high-performance R-Type Continental, Bentley s S1 model garnered widespread praise as a highly capable road car of supreme luxury. This handsome example was newly sold by Brooklands Ltd. of London on May 3, 1957, to Donald Deeprose Esq. of Surrey, UK, finished in the stunning color combination of Circassian Blue with light blue upholstery. The Bentley was fitted from new with a HMV Smiths Radiomobile 200X radio, scuttle aerial, Dunlop Road Speed tires, wing lamps, and delivered with a tin of polish.

After being owned by UK-based enthusiasts, the Continental made its way to the US by 1985, by which time it had been purchased by Peter Sealey of New Canaan, Connecticut. Mr. Sealey soon moved to Los Altos Hills, California, and British car specialists DeLong s Automotive of Campbell, California, performed an overhaul of the engine and transmission in 1997. A host of service records on file document additional maintenance and repairs carried out over the years. A summary on file notes that Mr. Sealey spent over $43,000 servicing the Bentley in his care and sold it in 2006, after 21 years of ownership. In 2010, noted privateer racer Herb Wetanson of Southampton, New York, purchased the Bentley for his private collection. After 13 years of ownership, Mr. Wetanson sold the Bentley to the previous owner. The S1 appears to have never been fully restored, and presents in largely original condition with its fantastic blue leather displaying a wonderful patina. The car is accompanied by copies of factory documentation, an original brochure, and 25 pages of service records, as well as its former UK registration book, tool kit, jack, and spare.

H.J. Mulliner s coach built Bentleys of the 1950s are some of the most exclusive and elegant motorcars of the era, and the S1 Continental Fastback was built in extremely limited numbers, with a roster of early owners that included some of the world s most famous names. This distinctive example is well documented, fitted with its matching-numbers engine per accompanying factory records, finished in outstanding original colors, and features a wonderfully patinated interior. With this desirable host of attributes and its gorgeous coachwork, this S1 Continental is not to be overlooked.
