WELCOME TO CARTER'S CLASSICS
A legacy collection, available to you.
1958 CADILLAC CONVERTIBLE
Throughout the years, Cadillac has proven time and time again that they can outdo their competitors. Quite often, they even outdo themselves. 1958 was a year when they did just that. In 1957, Cadillac had made numerous improvements to their flagship vehicle, and it reached record sales. In 1958, with the release of this model, the car saw even more changes. Design improvements, a powerful increase to 310hp, four distinct headlights, full fender skirts, and the trademark rear fins.
Overall, the car is an incredible standard for Cadillac, and we are lucky to have one in such condition. This model is a beautiful 2 door coupe convertible, with an absolutely brilliant original blue exterior.
1947 CADILLAC SERIES 62
1947 was the last year of the Cadillac Series 62's Second Generation. This line of vehicles was easily recognized by its massive grille, round lights, and streamlined 'bullet' shape. The engine was a 346 cu in, 5.7 litre Monobloc V8, and the automatic transmission was a 4 speed Hydra-Matic. The sedan version of this car was also the first Cadillac to go into production after WWII. 1947 was a record year for this car, with 39,835 vehicles sold.
This particular car is a 2-door coupe, with a beautiful dark maroon paint-job. These photos do not do the vehicle justice. The car is absolutely pristine. It has a gorgeous engine, leather seats, and is in incredible condition.
1940 CADILLAC LASALLE
Lasalle was a brand of automobiles manufatured and marketed by General Motors' Cadillac division from 1927 through 1940. This was the last year for the Lasalle and sales reached its second highest level at 24,133.
Over $50,000 was spent on this complete restoration and there are still 5 full boxes of spare parts. This is a beautiful gloss black car, with an immaculate grey interior.
It has a 322 cu. in. cast iron V8 motor with smooth shifting "Selective Synchromesh" 3 speed Column shift transmission.
It has correct "Bakelite" three spoke Banjo steering wheel and 100mph speedometer with trip odometer.
1956 CHEVROLET 3100 STEPSIDE
This near-perfect vehicle is a great example of how a truck can be kept in excellent condition for years and even decades. The chrome is completely rust-free, the paint is in very good condition and the interior is complete with dashboard gauges and bench seat. The stance and exterior shape of this vehicle clearly exhibits the quality and appearance of 1950s Chevrolet trucks, with the trademark Chevy imprint on the rear. The box itself is in amazing condition, with polished wood liner. The engine, as mentioned above, is a powerful 350 cu. in. with 5 speed transmission. A great vehicle with awesome restoration and upkeep.
* Original V8 Truck had a 4-speed on the floor; now has 5 speed (tri-mec), 350 cu.in triple deuce setup (97 Strombergs), 3:73, Front disc brakes.
1939 PONTIAC OPERA
This beautiful Pontiac Opera Coupe was originally built in Canada, and eventually was sold in Saskatchewan. This year of Pontiacs boasted better handling and a smoother overall ride. This is a result of the unique GM B body frame, which has coil spring suspension on all of its four corners.The car, being an "Opera" coupe, also has folding seats in the rear, which in this case are originals.
Like many of our Carter Classics, this 1939 Pontiac is a restoration. To be specific, this vehicle has undergone a complete off-frame restoration, including a new GM 350 crate ZZ1 335 HP engine, new transmission, a professionally completed interior including the trunk. The car also has brand new Apache wheels with BF Goodrich Radial tires.
1954 CHEVROLET CORVETTE
In 1954, there were a total of 3,640 Corvette roadsters made. The exclusivity of the car made it extremely desirable, and the quality of the vehicle speaks for itself. Out of those 3,640, this specific car is number 2,866. The original owner of the car owned it until the winter of 1963. The 2nd owner enjoyed driving the car until the spring of 1966, when it was placed in storage. There it stayed until 2005, when it was retrieved and underwent an extensive frame-off restoration.
This car is simply the best of the best. Polo white exterior, gorgeous red interior, a blue flame 235ci engine, and Powerglide Automatic 2-speed Transmission. The prestigious National Corvette Restorers Society gave it a Top Flight score of 99.5 in 2013. In 2012, it received a Bloomington Gold Certification score of 98.6. Records indicate that there have only been 15 total Corvettes of this year to score 98.6 or higher since they began keeping records in 1978.
1939 BUICK 46C
The Buick Special's debut in 1936 marked the brand's entry into full-sized automobiles, as well as the start of the practice of using names for models rather than serial numbers. The 1939 model specifically offered a full restyling, with a wider grille and enclosed front end. The engine was an impressive 248 cu in 4.1L.
This is an absolutely incredible example of a vehicle that has undergone a thorough, extensive and effective ground up restoration. The body is straight, solid, rust free and free of any serious damage. The bumpers, guards, grille, and all other chrome parts have been rechromed. The gorgeous interior has correct leather seat upholstery and door panels, and the steering wheel and dash have been restored. The running gear is in very good condition, the car sports a rebuilt 248 straight eight engine, equipped with dual carbs and mated to correct three-speed transmission. An appraiser said "it is probably the finest example of this model in the Country".

This is an all original 1956 Chev 1/2 ton. It is painted in a beautiful green, and is in absolutely pristine condition. It was just recently bought by Jack Carter's in May of 2018 at the Okotoks Collector Car Auction, and is a definitely great addition to our Classics Inventory. The car really speaks for itself; it has an original wood box in really great condition, and its interior is near-perfect.
1953 CHEVROLET SUBURBAN
The 1953 Chevy is a part of GM’s third generation of Suburbans. Beginning in 1935, Chevrolet began production of vehicles geared towards families, one of them called the Suburban. Among the first SUVs ever produced, the Suburban nameplate has been in use longer than any other, and today continues as one of Chevy’s top selling vehicles. This third generation of Suburbans took place during the beginning of the transition from standard to automatic transmissions, in the beginning of the 1950’s.
This particular vehicle has rear panel doors, a 4-speed standard transmission and a V6 engine. The colour is a unique white and red, and the interior is a spacious and in good shape. It is a seriously fun car to drive and is in excellent condition.

1970 CHEVROLET C10
In 1960, Chevrolet introduced the C/K series of not previously offered full-size pickups. While previously designated by numbers like the 3100/3200/3600, the system was simplified to 10/20/30, with a C designating a 2 wheel drive and a K for 4 wheel. 1970 specifically brought in a body update as well as an upgrade to its 6.5L V8 engine from 396 cu. in. to 402.
This is a stunning vehicle. Its quality is evident from the glossy black/white paint and spotless interior. It has a ZZ383 Stroker engine with Nitrous (never been used) as well as a Turbo 400 automatic transmission system. It comes with a full gauge package, vintage air, and a pro-built rear end. This car has been built from the ground up, with $100,000+ invested in it. It really is an incredible example of a vintage short box truck.
1962 CHEVROLET CORVETTE
1962 marked the last production year of the Chevrolet Corvette's first generation, otherwise known as C1, before the introduction of the Corvette Sting Ray in 1963. This final year's wave of cars sported new engines, the base model boasting 250hp and an optional 300hp upgrade. 1962 was the last year to include a trunk until 1998, and was the last to include exposed headlights until 2005.
This specific corvette was #4989 of 14,531 convertibles. With only 78,530 miles on it, it's an excellent example of a well preserved, numbers matching vehicle. Coloured roman red with a red interior and black top, it sports a rare 3-speed transmission guiding the 327ci., 250hp, numbers matching engine. It is one of 995 cars from the year with power windows, an interesting feature for it's time.
1969 CHEVROLET CAMARO
The 1969 Chevy Camaro carried over previous year's drivetrain and mechanical components, but had all new sheet metal and a sportier look. This particular car was originally sold here at Jack Carter's, and we are very pleased to have it back.
There are over 2,000 hours logged in its restoration, and nothing was spared. It has correct "Rallye green" paint, with all new white interior and a new black convertible top.
The powerful 350 cu. in. engine has a 4 speed transmission.
This car looks as good underneath as it does on top, and is equally as fun to drive.
1970 OLDSMOBILE CUTLASS
This stunning vehicle was originally purchased from our Jack Carter GM dealership in Calgary. It was purchased back recently, in May 2018 from its 3rd owner, who had the car for approximately 12 years putting about 1500 miles on it. It is all original from 1970.

This big block 427 335 HP 4 BBl Turbo Jet V8 has been fully rebuilt. The car has the optional dual action tailgate, and the interior is all but new and redone and everything works. It is an extremely rare car, virtually impossible to find another and this truly may be the finest example in the world. Everyone remembers riding in the back of these old wagons, this car is a great opportunity to take your kids or grand-kids down memory lane.
1968 CHEVY K10 - SHORT BOX
Once in a while a truck comes along that you just don't see very often. Short box trucks from 1967-1972 are very rare to see, and this one is a 4x4 with manual transmission and bucket seats. The paint is high gloss black, with bright chrome bumpers and mouldings. The engine is believed to be the original 327 200HP motor, and the car stands on Summit Trail Climber tires.
This is truly an outstanding truck, with great stance and sheen.
