1968 Plymouth Belevedere

The 1968 Plymouth Belvedere came close to the end of the life for this model, which Chrysler produced from 1954 to 1970. The first incarnation of the model was the 1951 to 1953 Cranbrook Belvedere. The two-door hardtop came out to compete with the Chevy Bel Air. As was always intended for the Plymouth name, this version of the Cranbrook was a low-cost car. In fact, it was the first, affordable two-door hardtop to come out of Detroit.

Every year, the oldest cars in the world, and their devoted owners, gather in England to make the trek from London to Brighton. The Veteran Car Run, held early each November, sees hundreds of pre-1905 cars make the journey in a parade of automobile antiquity.

The Run itself is even older than most of the vehicles participating. According to the Royal Automobile Club, which sponsors the event, the Veteran Car Run commemorates the Emancipation Run, which took place on November 14, 1896. The original run was held to celebrate the passing of a law that raised road speed limits in the UK from four to a whopping 14 miles an hour.

What’s a Chevy Nova Worth Today? $250,000? $30 Million?

1968 Chevrolet NovaWhile it may not seem out of the ordinary to spend over $20,000 for a finely restored Chevy Nova, spending six figure or millions on one does seem a bit excessive. The Chevy Nova is not a hard-to-find rarity, like an early 1953 Chevy Corvette or a 1955 Gullwing Mercedes, so it comes as a surprise to many Nova fans and car aficionados that two cars would be so highly priced.
