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.

We all remember a few years ago when Barrett-Jackson went crazy over the original Batman car, well this replica will surly tug at some fan’s wallets as well. A recreation, it’s still highly raved as one of the best. Lot F255, Batman No.5.

When you look at Lot F243, it just screams muscle car! Not to mention the rarity of this Oldsmobile, this is about as cool as an Olds gets!

Lot F167 is a great example of Dodge’s unique color palate. 1 of 2 Dodge Daytona’s in F6 Spring Green, this car should hit the one million mark in my opinion. Look for this to potentially be top seller of the day on Friday!

Sadly in the collector car world “Hemi” just doesn’t do what it used to, but when you ad convertible to it, it still rings the bell! The GTX convertible is one of the rarest of them all! Lot L77┬áis 1 of 11!

 

 

Lot 82.1 not only carries three legendary drivers signature, but one of them on the door as well. Signed by Shelby, Unser, and Bondurant. This Bob Bondurant racing Mustang is a cool piece of history for anyone’s collection!

I love a Superbird, but the white on Lot L84 may be the classiest color of them all.

Lot 79.1, better known as King Of The Hill, the ZR1. This low mile example should really ring the bell!

Lot L40 brings us the first Foxbody Mustang of the auction. This is an SSP car, meaning basically it was a cop car. This particular one was a Florida Highway Patrol Car. These cars have been doing really good at auctions as of late, it will be interesting to see what trend this one sets for the year.
