Below are our Top Ten Gotta Haves For Friday!

Lot 934: 1958 Chevrolet Brookwood Wagon

While its a little disappointing that they went with a 454 instead of the original 348, this is still a cool car. I’ve always loved the 58 styling and you hardly ever see any wagon’s.

Lot 952: 1991 GMC Syclone

If you’ve read anything on here by now, you know I love the GMC Syclone’s, this low mile version is sure to bring some good money.

Lot 1008.1: 1970 Plymouth AAR ‘Cuda

As a Challenger T/A owner, you know a AAR is gonna be on my list!

Lot 1030.4: 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1

If you could order a new ’69 Mustang today, I’d imagine you’d order it just like this! Track pack, 428 Cobra Jet, 4-speed, black, shaker hood, etc. etc.

Lot 1054: 1961 Chevrolet Bubble Top

348, 4-speed, bubble top. Those are the words dreams are made of! You couldn’t get a better looking Chevrolet than this in the 1st half of the 60’s!

Lot 1025.1: 1958 Chevrolet Impala

I love the build of this car, just enough custom work and a big bored out 348.

Lot 1060: 1974 Pontiac Super Duty Trans Am

My dad had a car identical to this about fifteen or twenty years ago, I’d hate to say what we sold ours for…….

Lot 1069: 1969 Ford Mustang

Cobra Jet coupe’s are rare birds!!

Lot 1072: 1969 Shelby GT350

Speaking of rare coupe’s, check this one out!

Lot 1133: 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A

Can’t overlook this one!! Hoping it brings big money! Not that I will ever sell mine….

Mecum Kissimmee 2016: Gotta Haves Friday 1-15

Time to kick our Mecum coverage off! Later on in the week I’ll have ten cars per day, but to start with the number may be a few less!

 

Lot J47: 1957 Cadillac Series 75 Limo

This is the car Johnny Cash songs are made off, long and black! This thing is a beauty for sure!

Lot J51: 1969 Lincoln Continental

Keeping in the luxury line, I really like these big late 60’s Lincoln’s. In fact, this isn’t the only one you are going to see on this list.

Lot J146: 1951 Kaiser Deluxe Sedan

This one is going to make anyone take a double take on cruise night. At first, it looks like a shoebox Ford, but then at second glance, you realize it is something special.

Lot J179: 1967 Lincoln Continental

A little more flash than the last Lincoln, this would make an awesome cruiser!

Lot J228: 2002 Daves Custom Boat

Anyone that knows me knows I love speed boats. This thing is awesome, I’d love to cruise party cove in this baby next summer!

1936 FORD DELUXE PHAETON: LOT 1137.0

Old Ford Phaeton’s are super cool and super rare. It was impossible to not add this one to the list when i saw it!

1952 CHEVROLET CUSTOM 2 DOOR HARDTOP: LOT 1150.0

I got to admit, the Corvette grille and bumpers caught my eye. I’m usually not a big fan of modern customs, but this has enough old school in it that I really like it!

1988 PONTIAC GRAND PRIX DAYTONA 500 PACE CAR: LOT 1160.0

In the big scheme of things, I’m not really sure what this car is worth, but as a NASCAR fan, I thing its super cool!

1969 JAGUAR XKE 2+2 COUPE: LOT 1316.0

Nothing beats an XKE coupe! This one is an excellently restored example of one!

 

1989 SHELBY CSX: LOT 3045.0

Anything with the Shelby name gets my attention! I’ve always thought these were cool little cars!

 

1960 STUDEBAKER CHAMP PICK UP: LOT 4017

Old speed shop trucks are cool. Being that this one is a Studebaker makes it even cooler! Even comes with a display motor in the back!

 

1965 CHEVROLET CORVETTE COUPE: LOT 6019

The color brought my attention to this one, never mind big block, four speed, etc. etc.!

 

1989 FORD MUSTANG: LOT 6023

It’s a foxbody, so you know its on my list!

 

1969 CHEVROLET PICK UP 2500 SERIES LOT 3341.0

You never see a nice 3/4 ton chevy for sale, thus why its on my list!

1979 DODGE LIL RED EXPRESS: LOT 3381.0

Really curious to see what this one does. These are fun little trucks and the price seems to be on the rise!

For all the info on the Mecum Austin Auction, CLICK HERE

Here are or top ten “Gotta Haves” from this weekend’s Mecum Auction in Austin, Texas.

 

Lot S28: 1971 Chevrolet Corvette

I love the green, I love the big block and the 4-speed. The power steering and air are just extra kickers. Maybe not the fastest big block Corvette ever made, but this would be a heck of a nice driver!

Lot S38.1: 1970 Plymouth Hemi ‘Cuda

The chances to own a Hemi ‘Cuda are getting less and less these days, the chances to own an unrestored, low mile Hemi ‘Cuda? Impossible! This car will fetch big money. Aside from everything mentioned, this car is a rare color too, the beautiful Jamaican Blue.

Lot S112.1: 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Split Window

Lot S35: 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Split Window

As much as I love a split window, its never really been a bucket list car for me, my dad had one years ago so I kinda checked it off the list. But both of these cars grabbed my attention. The first one, because its that classic silver that I so often see a split window pictured in. I love the original hub caps, its just got that classic Vette look. The second one grabbed my attention for just the opposite, that custom color, its different from the norm and beautiful. If you end up with either one of these Vette’s, its gonna be a good weekend in Austin!

Lot S137: 1963 Chevrolet Impala

While I’m not normally a huge fan of the 63 Chevrolet passenger cars,  all the power options with the 409 drew me to this car. Rare options, black exterior, red interior, someone had a good eye when they checked the order boxes on this one!

Lot S94: 1956 Chevrolet Corvette Restomod

Who doesn’t love a resto-mod Vette? This ’56 is as clean as they come. It looks basically stock on the outside, but its anything but stock on the inside!

Lot S118.1 1970 Dodge Challenger

I remember years ago shortly after the Viper came out seeing a Challenger swapped with a Viper V10 at the Turkey Rod Run in Daytona Beach, I thought it was an awesome idea ever since, you just don’t see it done nearly enough!

Lot S116: 1972 Chevrolet Corvette LT1

The Lt1 Vette’s are THE VETTE to have in my opinion. The ultra rare 72 version with factory air are even better!

Lot F58: 1965 Ford Mustang Restomod

While the title says restomod, Im not really sure how much that applies. What it is though is a tough looking little coupe with enough creature comforts to make it fun, but not take away the muscle car feel or look.

Lot F239: 1969 Chevrolet C10 Pickup

Original patina on a C10? Need I say more? I mean? Really? This thing is out of this world awesome!
