Lot S73 features my favorite look of all the C1 Corvette’s, a big brake fuelie! Black is just an added bonus!

 

Lot S95 features what I have always thought as one of the most collectible Mustang’s of the modern era, the first recreation of the GT350. This is a prototype car owned by the man Mr. Shelby himself!

Lot S121 gives us another Mustang. Although they may not have been the most popular body style in the Boss line up, performance wise, having owned both a 70 and a 71, I think these cars run much better than the 1969 and 1970 302 versions.

 

If you’ve been following our coverage all week, you are probably wondering by now why I haven’t mentioned any of the dozens of awesome factory race cars going across the blocks this week, well the reason is simple, there are so many they got their own article!

With that being said, there was one factory drag car so awesome, it had to be mentioned in here. Lot S126, a factory Hemi Dart. The even cooler thing about this car, as if it could get any cooler, it was bought in the next town over, Sylva, NC from where I live! I’m currently researching to see if anyone remembers the car as it appears to have spent most its life in the area!

 

Everyone knows I love four doors, Lot S132 is a great example of a rare factory four door! Check it out!

If you’ve looked at anything Mecum Kissimmee, you’ve saw Lot 146.1, this rare black & blue Corvette has to catch your eye! I also imagine it is going to catch a ton of money for the seller!

Lot S151 to me is THE look that defines the C3 Corvette. Bought new at Yenko Chevrolet, Baldwin Motion style hood, big block, etc, etc, it has it all!

Often times when you see a “tanker” Vette, its a Bloomington Gold restored trailer queen, nothing wrong with that at all, but it sure is nice to see one that was used for what it was built for! To race!! Check out Lot S235.

I’ve always been a sucker for the big cars, especially when they have a big block in them! Lot K74 is a great example of such car, 4-speed and all!

 

Being a mid 70’s Grand Prix owner, this one immediately caught my eye. I expect cars like Lot K81 to really come on strong in the upcoming years.

 

I’m a sucker for a 59 Chevy, I’m a sucker for a four door, I’m a sucker for a wagon. Lot K90 has all that! Plus a 348 and a four speed!

 

Just look at Lot K147.1 it needs to explanation why its on the list!

Lot K166.1 is our first look at a higher end Corvette, the classic 63 Split Window. This car is highly optioned, unique owner history, it will be interesting to see what this one does in the earlier time slot, I could see it hitting triple digits pretty easy!
