Cars Danny Koker Won't Sell | Counting Cars



Transcript

Danny Koker is an American businessman and car enthusiast best known for his work in the History TV series, Counting Cars.

Over the years, Danny has collected a vast amount of automobiles, which include 58 cars and 78 motorcycles.

According to an interview with The Globe and Mail, obsession with automotive actually runs in his family.

His father and his uncles always had hot rods and cool cars, and some of them even worked at the Ford Motor Co. in Detroit.

As of 2018, Danny Koker has garnered a net worth of approximately $13 million.

Here are five cars that Danny won’t be willing to sell among his vast collection of vehicles 

1956 Chevy Stepside

Danny drives the 1956 Chevy Stepside pickup hot rod in satin black with red flames on the set of Counting Cars.

1965 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham

The 1965 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham is Danny’s daily driver which reflects the way he grew up in Detroit.

It features a black vinyl top, big gangster whitewalls and an all-black fur interior.

1932 Ford Roadster

Danny owns the 1932 Ford Roadster which is the original Mattel Hot Wheel Car. The Mattel designed their 32’ toy based on this car.

According to Danny, it's one of the oldest and historic hot rods in the nation. It was cut up and turned into a hot rod back in 1949.

He bought the car in the early ‘80s, and it has been a crown jewel in his collection ever since.

1966 Mustang GT350

Danny’s father bought the 1966 Mustang GT350 when Danny was just nine years old. 

This car was one of the reasons Danny and his father started playing with and collecting cars together.

After his father passed away a few years back, the car has been a vital part of his collection, on a personal level.

1999 Shelby Series 1

Though Danny is a frugal buyer, he purchased the 1999 Shelby Series 1 for the tag of $115,000. 

According to Danny, only 249 of the car were built and designed by the automotive designer, Carroll Shelby.

Because most of the cars came from the factory silver, he contacted his contacts at the Shelby factory to build him a black one.

That makes his car one of the rarest as it is the only black 1999 Shelby Series 1.
