Country Classic Cars; Wish We Were There

August 8th, 2009 · 2 Comments

By Garland Pollard

STAUNTON, Illinois – We ran across the website of Country Classic Cars. Man, do they have some good stuff.

A great old Willys Overland Jeep, 1949, only $8950.

Ford Ranch Wagon, 1966

Above, a Ford Ranch Wagon, 1966, only $3,950.

But I am really Jones-ing for this Chrysler Newport.

GM or Chrysler ought to buy out a dealer like this, just to keep their fingers on their old brand legacies. They won’t of course, but you can still have some fun poking around their website and wishing you could drive one out TOMORROW.

Country Classic Cars  2149 E. Frontage Rd.  Staunton, IL 62088, Phone: 618-635-7056

    Got some feedback from a reader…..

    The Country Classic Cars is located only about 40 miles from downtown St. Louis — probably about the same distance, or just a few miles more, from the St. Louis airport, so if you are ever at the airport waiting for a connecting flight, you should rent a car for a couple hours and drive on out there.
