Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2015: Thursday Cars To Watch

Lot 616: 1996 Ford Mustang Shinoda Boss

What makes this one cool: I’ve always been a big fan of the SN95 Shinoda cars, although they’ve never really brought big money. Curious to see what this one does, it might set an upward trend for the cars.

 

Lot 626: 1949 Plymouth Suburban

What makes this one cool: I saw one of these a few years ago at a show for sale and fell in love with it. It was still in its original glory, not built like this one. I thought then, what a cool car that would make. I guess someone else had the same idea!

Lot 756: 1972 Chevrolet Corvette LT1

What makes this one cool: This is one of several 1972 LT1’s going across the blocks on Thursday. The LT1 in my opinion may be or is the best performing Corvette ever built pre-modern era. Especially in small block form. What makes this one cool is its a factory air car and a rare color. In fact my dad had an identical car a few years back, same color and all.

Lot 770.2 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

What makes this one cool: These cars are all the fuss in the media and very hard to get right now. I’d imagine someone will pay a premium price to put this one in their garage.

Lot 791: 2007 Shelby GT Coupe

What makes this one cool: Aside from this being an EPA test car, these Shelby GT’s are probably the most well balanced car ever built on the S197 chassis and are actually closer to the Shelby heritage than the more popular GT 500’s.

Pigeon Forge Rod Run Fall ’13: Top Ten Picks

It’s been a few months since we’ve done the top ten picks, sorry I’ve been kind of slack. But I’m trying to get it fired back up along with some other features to figure out what people like and what they don’t like so we can prepare to go full blast into our 3rd year in 2014!

Had to take a double take on this one! I bet he gets some interesting looks going down the highway!

I wish I could have got a close up look at this Mercedes Benz, I’m guessing late model power, maybe LS? Never got a good look at it.

Nothing seems hotter right now than an old patina’d up truck with an LS motor shoved under the hood, this one is a great example of that!

This car had a built AMC power plant and ran 10 second 1/4 mile times. I really like the mix of strip and classic in this one. It was a car you could have won with on Friday night at the track and then won with on Saturday at the car shows. Not very often do you see a stock appearing classic this nice AND this fast and track ready.

Do I really need to explain?” Plus they were making tons of laps on the street! Nasty car!

5e 5d 5c 5b 5a

Coyote swaps are becoming more and more popular, but to see one in this old Mercury was very cool!

Did Oliver even make an old truck? This is one I guess? It was a new one for me and man was it slick!!

3.

3d 3c 3b 3a

Yeah, I know the distributor is in the wrong place, but this is still a REALLY slick car.

2.

If I would have had the money this car would have came home with me. When have you EVER saw a four door 150 car? They have to be rare. This would have made an excellent driver.

Plymouth Suburban? How cool is that! Look at the interior in this thing, all it needs is a late model Hemi and updated drivetrain and this would be an AWESOME street rod.

TOP-10

1958 Pontiac Bonneville
Lot Number 753

pontiac58
I’ve always loved the unique styling of the 50’s Pontiac’s, Buick’s, and Oldsmobile’s. From the door up you think 58 Chevy, but at second glance you know its something a little more special.

1959 Ford F100 “Shelby Farms” Truck
Lot Number 639

59ford
Usually when you here the word Shelby at Barrett-Jackson dollar signs quickly follow. But this might be a rare chance to buy a Shelby at Barrett-Jackson without getting into the 50k plus range. Very interested to see where this truck goes money wise. Big money or not, its one cool looking truck!

1939 Pontiac Sedan Patrol Car
Lot Number 850

Old Highway Patrol cars are cool, especially one this old!

1973 Plymouth ‘Cuda
Lot Number 824

E-body Mopar’s have a special place in my heart. This 73 is an awesome example of one, this thing is built to drive. Being a 73 you could have a lot of fun in it and not worry about messing up the value of the more collectible 70-71 cars.

2008 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 KR
Lot Number 754

I’m curious to see what kind of money this car brings it respect to Mr. Shelby no longer being with us, but with this car being a later Shelby offering as apposed to some of the earlier Shelby’s.

1973 Chevrolet Corvette
Lot Number 776

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
73vette
This would be an awesome car to have. C3 styling, C5 power. Restomod’s are hot especially in the Vette world. But I’m curious how this being one of the less popular years in a ’73 does going across the block.

1932 Ford Model A Truck
Lot Number 758

I am in love with this truck. Classic look, but with some classic hot rodding touches. A 406 Buick Nailhead with blower, this thing is just too cool.

1956 GMC Suburban Pick Up
Lot Number 756

We talked about this brother to this truck, the Cameo earlier in the week but now we are gonna talk about the rare one of the two siblings, the GMC Suburban Pick Up. 1 of 250 built in 1956. This one is sure to bring a nice price tag.

1964 Chevrolet Biscayne
Lot Number 755
