With Father’s Day closer than you might think, you might be wondering what a good gift would be for your car-crazy dad. Sure, you could go the easy route and get him a hat or a t-shirt with the logo of his preferred brand or model on it, but doesn’t dad already have enough Ford Mustang t-shirts?
Here are six cool automotive gifts for dad in 2019.
Jeep Gladiator Multi-Tool
Multi-tools are great gifts and they’re super handy to keep in the glove compartment, but frankly, dad might be getting a little sick of getting a traditional multi-tool for every holiday. The new Jeep Gladiator is something a little different in midsize pickups and this little Gladiator-shaped tool for $4.95 is something a little different in multi-tools. It features a hex bit, a spoke wrench, a flat-head driver, a pry, a bottle opener, variable sized SAE and metric wrenches, a saw, and a small ruler. It also comes attached to a brochure for the Gladiator in case dad is interested in having the real thing. Find a Jeep Gladiator for sale
Ford Field & Co. Campster Craft Growler/Wine Cooler
For the outdoorsy dad who likes to bring something a little stronger than drinking water on a camping trip, this cool, retro-styled campster craft growler/wine cooler for $29.99 is a great gift. Along with the cooler itself, it comes with a nice, big 64 oz growler that dad can fill up with whatever he wants. If you don’t use the growler, the cooler is big enough to carry two 750 ml wine bottles, which mom might appreciate. For the dad who likes to take his Ford truck or SUV into the wilderness, this cooler would be a great companion. Find a Ford for sale
Toyota TRD Elite 20 qt Pelican Cooler
Speaking of the outdoors, if your dad spends any time at all camping, fishing, hunting or doing just about anything outside, he has probably fantasized about having a really nice Pelican cooler. If your dad also happens to be a Toyota nut, perhaps one who enjoys off-roading in his Tacoma or 4Runner, then he’d really appreciate this TRD-branded Elite 20 qt Pelican Cooler for $285. The extreme insulation of this cooler can keep ice for up to three days and has a molded-in lock clasp for an extra tight and secure seal plus it has cup holders and a bottle opener built-in. This might seem expensive for a cooler, but it’s made in the USA and comes with a lifetime guarantee. Find a Toyota for sale
Corvette ZR1 LEGO Technic Set
If you don’t quite have a six-digit Father’s Day gift budget to get dad a real Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, the next best thing is this ZR1 LEGO Technic set for $39.99. It’s actually a two-in-one set and can also be used to build a retro hot rod by simply using a different set of instructions. Dad will love the level of detail in this set with its big rear wing, four tailpipes, realistic wheels and tires, working steering, and a V8 engine with moving pistons. It’s recommended for ages nine and up, so putting this toy together shouldn’t be too much of a challenge for your dad. Find a Chevrolet Corvette for sale
Land Rover Paper Clips
These Land Rover Paperclips are … well … paper clips that are shaped like Land Rovers. Land Rover’s website doesn’t give much description of this product beyond the obvious, but they appear to come in two different sizes and colors; a larger black one that looks like a Range Rover and a smaller gray one that looks to us like an old school Discovery. They come in a branded Land Rover tin and they’re a classy way to add a little fun to an everyday item as boring as a paperclip and they’re only $5.85. Find a Land Rover for sale
Porsche 911 Bluetooth Speaker
By now, pretty much everyone who wants a Bluetooth speaker has one and it might seem like a generic gift, but there’s nothing generic about this one. This Porsche 911 speaker is made from the twin exhaust module of a Porsche 911 GT3 and at $600, it’s the most expensive of the automotive gifts on this list. It has Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC technology making connectivity easy and it promises superb sound quality with deep bases and clear tones. Whether dad uses this in the office or in the garage, this speaker, in Porsche’s words, is "a real treat for the senses." Find a Porsche 911 for sale
