- New York Car Royalty: Since 1976, Cooper Classics have been selling and restoring the finest vintage cars. Clientele includes not only classic car aficionado in the US, but also rumored to include Dubai princes and the Sultan of Brunei.
- Fully restored 1966 Jaguar XKE Roadster in Dark Blue Metallic and Grey Leather interior. When this car was first introduced, Enzo Ferrari called it, "the most beautiful car ever made."
- Nearly all cars at Cooper are restored to showroom conditions. From original window sticker, owner's manuals, down to matching numbers throughout. Don’t get your hopes up for an iPhone charger.
- 1967 Mercedes 250SE: Unlike most carmakers, Mercedes has an official vintage division solely devoted to restoring vehicles to their former glory. An entire car can be taken apart and reassembled like an antique watch. The best or nothing.
- Penned by the famous Pininfarina, this 1962 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider has undergone a full “rotisserie” restoration where every corner of the vehicle was revived by a team of Alfa specialists.
- Like Mercedes, the Prancing Horse also has one of the most comprehensive restoration and certification programs. 1979 308 GTB and 1989 328 GTS. With their iconic 80's 5-spoke rims.
- The 1988 Aston Martin Volante V8 Convertible side by side with the 1977 Porsche 911 Turbo (930). Well before today's 911R and V12 Vantage.
- Before 1911, Rolls-Royce cars only carried the "RR" logo. Owners often personalized their vehicles with hood ornaments--sometimes borderline inappropriate. This led the commissioning of the graceful Flying Lady mascot.
- Highly regarded in the collector's world, the 356 is also one of the most popular replicas. Seen here is an original 1963 356 Super Cabriolet.
- Like father, like son. 1960 Porsche 356 and 1997 Porsche 911 (993) Cabriolet
- 1962 Austin-Healey 3000 Mark 2 BT7: Quintessentially British, the Austin-Healey 3000 is the best known of the “Big Healey” models.
- Small and stylish, the MGB was the pure two-seater sports car. This 1970 MGB was previously owned by the son of an MG factory worker who grew up to become a well-known MG collector.
