I would love to get a GXP with a manual transmission. There are very few of them and they generally sell for more than they cost new.

Are you talking about the 6.2L?

I know hers is at least a 6.0. 2009, the red color, all the options, she loves it. Likes to race Audis. They don't stand a chance. All they have is the 4.2L V8...

1990 Chevrolet 1500 454SS (although highly detuned, can be an absolute monster, and tow a large boat without feeling a thing.

1993 Jeep Grand Wagoneer (Grand Cherokee body w/ wood paneling) some novel differences like the AW4 transmission instead of a 42RE (gear selector will display PRND321 instead of PRND21) and it uses R12 refrigerant as opposed to a 1993 Grand Cherokee.

2003 Ford F-550 Superduty with a pickup bed - many people believe they only made chassis cabs for rigs above an F-350 before the F-450 became popular around 2008, but there were some limited runs of a "Super Hauler" outfit that was pretty sweet if I do say so myself! https://www.autoblog.com/used-detail...ord-F-550-2003

2008-9 Durango Hybrid with Hemi engine, no RPM gauge, very weird hybrid activity display. Just unique!

As far as S10/S15 the difference was in trim and grilles. But the vehicles were basically the same. The difference between the S10 and Sy/Ty platforms were

Awd
Specific Ground effect package
Sunbird turbo dash gauges
Interior was a bit different
Wheels
I believe they were slightly lowered
If I remember right my Syclone tow rating was rated as none and cargo rating was max 5-600 pounds.
Tonneau cover


There was a GMC Sonoma GT that looked like a Syclone but was a 2wd version and not turbocharged. Basically a appearance package but from what I understand it is more rare than a Syclone.



I would want a
67 1/2 fastback mustang.
If I couldn’t get that I would take a new Coyote 5.0 GT

Chevy and GMC pickups are made on the same line and the op is correct just different trim.

King Ranch isn't a special edition, nor are they rare. It's just a trim package the same as XLT, Lariat, Platinum, etc. You can go down to your local Ford dealer and they will likely have 5-10 of them on the lot at any one time.

Rare F-150s would be something like the Saleen S331 Sporttruck, the early '90s Nite edition, the 1998 NASCAR special edition or even the aforementioned Lightning.

Another one of my favorites would be the Free-Wheelin' Ford trucks and vans from the 70s. They weren't much more than a '70s inspired 'sunset' decal package, but they're hard to find nowadays and bring a premium.


Similar and another '70s favorite was the 1975 GMC Sierra with the 'Gentleman Jim' package. These trucks had a cool black and metallic gold two-tone paint treatment with matching metallic gold rally wheels. Vinyl high back bucket seats with a console, padded door armrests and storage pockets, simulated woodgrain trim, 8-track player, and my personal favorite, special embroidered carpet floor mats with a really cool Gentleman Jim logo.

The Gentleman Jim trucks are also rare, and fetch a hefty price at auction. They are also considered by many to be the first "luxury" pickup truck.

Another favorite of mine, although way out of my price range, is the 1995 BMW M3 Lightweight. Only 126 of these were made, and originally, BMW had trouble even selling those. They were all Alpine White with the checkered M flag decal package and the special black cloth interior with red "splashes". These cars were stripped down. No sunroof, no air conditioning, no radio and they had special kevlar door panels. Most of the sound deadening was also removed to save weight, and the doors were made out of aluminum. The cars had special springs as well as some additional bracing, a larger front lip and a handpicked engine.

You can't touch one of these for under $100,000 these days. Pretty funny considering they are the stripped down model and BMW had to offer heavy incentives to move them when they were new.

Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500
The world record price for one of these is 10X the world record price for a stock Merkur XR4ti.
Well in excess of $100K, the RS500 is one of the more valuable '80's cars.
