Black, low gear, 4-speed, no heater, dog dish hub caps, big engine. Nothing beats a plain Jane car. This 1960 Chevy is a great example of “built to run”. Check it out, Lot 982.

I never understood why more people didn’t do Dodge Viper engine swaps over the years? I remember seeing a Challenger at Carlisle years ago that had one and thought that was just the coolest thing. Apparently the builder of Lot 1016 agree’s with me!

I know what your thinking, Studebaker? But look at Lot 1027, check out the McCulloch supercharger hanging from the top of the engine.

Something about this ‘Cuda just grabs my eye. Its traditional Mopar. Over the top color, billboards, shaker hood, got to love it! Check it out, Lot 1071.

 

Low miles, four speed, hold on to your hat when this one goes across the block, it’s gonna ring the bell. Lot 1133.

Lot T70.1 stands for LT1, the LT1 Corvette is one of the most awesome Vette’s ever created in my opinion. This on is a factory AC car, which was a one year only option making it among the most rare. This one will surly fetch big money!

 

Lot T79 should let all those guys with 454SS Chevy trucks stuck in their garage if their investment was worth while or not. With less than 5 miles, never dealer prepped, this has to be the nicest most collectible 454SS in the country.

 

Lot T155.1, the Pontiac Super Duty Trans Am, probably the strongest preforming mid 70’s muscle car of them all. These cars, like all Trans Am’s have really came on the money. My dad had almost this identical car but in a 1974 instead of 1973. Wish he would have kept it! This car is a survivor, be interesting to see how it stacks up against a fully restored car price wise!

Being a Challenger T/A owner myself, you know I couldn’t pass this one up. Lot T142 is a great example of a very nice T/A. Hope it brings some big money!

Friday Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Part Two: The Dirty Dozen

2009 Dodge Challenger Convertible
Lot Number 1063.1

09vert
Built by Mr. Norm, this one of Convertible Challenger with a ‘Cuda grille and side louvers is sure to bring some good money.

Awesome example of a very nice AAR ‘Cuda. And all decked out in a nice traditional odd ball Mopar color scheme!

1971 Plymouth ‘Cuda Convertible
Lot Number 1037

71cuda
Very nice ‘Cuda. Old school Hemi with new school fuel injection.

1955 Chevrolet Corvette
Lot Number 1028

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
55vette
Most 1955 Corvettes featured a V8 for the first time, except for seven. This is one of those seven. Another worthless fact about this car is the last time it won a NCRS Top Flight award was in 1991 at Cypress Gardens which was also my very first NCRS event at the tender age of 5.

1959 Chevrolet Impala
Lot Number 1017

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
59
Our second 59 Impala Convertible of the day, but unlike the first original example this one is build to drive with a 6-speed and an LS1. It will be interesting to compare prices in the end!

1931 Ford Model A Roadster
Lot Number 1002

31
Its rare to see a nice original roadster, most of them are just fiberglass recreations.

1957 Chevrolet Corvette
Lot Number 991

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
57
I know, I know, this is like the 8th Corvette Resto-mod I’ve picked but they are just so dang cool!

1958 Chevrolet Corvette
Lot Number 983

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
58
Fine, I’ll pick a stock Vette. I mean after all 1958 is my favorite year of the straight axles and you’ve got to love a big brake car!

1970 Chevrolet Nova
Lot Number 943

nova
I’m not normally a big Nova fan but I’m diggin’ the factory big block and the black paint.

2000 Chevrolet Custom Corvette
Lot Number 978.1

I’ve always been a huge fan of these cars since they came out a few years ago but they never really seemed to take off. I’m really curious to see what this one brings.
