CHEVROLET BISCAYNE
Building a great Resto-Mod takes a mix of style, performance and creativity. Finding the balance between being a showpiece and drivability is essential, and this 1962 Chevrolet Biscayne custom is a perfect example. Arriving as a decent custom build, the team at the Barrett-Jackson Garage was turned loose to unleash the full potential of this Chevy. When it rolled into the shop, the car had already had an LS3 V8, disc brakes and air-ride suspension. The outside had been custom-painted all one color and the interior featured a custom-made metal dash painted to match. To improve the drivability, a 4L60E automatic transmission was swapped in to match up with the existing 6.2 LS3 engine, backed up by a Dana 60 rear axle with a limited-slip differential. For driving comfort, air conditioning was added with a kit from Vintage Air, four-wheel disc BAER brakes and electric power steering. To complete the interior, a set of custom door panels with armrests was made, as well as a new center console storage compartment that houses the air ride and ignition switches. Controls for the new air conditioning system were added to the console, along with a cup holder and air conditioning vent openings molded into the dash. A hidden stereo was added, and the trunk was fully upholstered to match everything, capping off the interior. For the exterior, the monotone paint was accented a matte gray metallic sprayed on the roof and pillars, as well as the taillight panel to match the grille. The rest of the paint was wet-sanded and polished to knock down any imperfections and let it shine like it was meant to. Finally, to make the engine bay one of a kind, a custom handmade set of inner fender wells with radiator cover was fabricated in house, showcasing a seamless custom engine bay with the LS3 being the focal point, all painted in the same matte gray metallic. To cap everything off, a set of custom valve covers was added, painted to match and bearing the “Biscayne” script across. After countless hours of fine tuning and attention to detail, this custom Chevy is turnkey and ready for anything from the Power Tour to Goodguys – and everything in between.

CHEVROLET BLAZER
While Jeep, International and Ford had been making small off-road-oriented multi-purpose vehicles, it was GM who supersized them to the half-ton pickup platform. Essentially a K10 pickup with a very short integral box as part of the interior, the K5 Blazer pioneered the pickup-based SUV. While retaining the stock pickup doors, the standard top was made out of fiberglass and could be unbolted. The Blazer was also available without a top, with a vinyl soft-top or with the popular hardtop. All had a tailgate/lift gate configuration in the back, and model range/powertrain availability mirrored the half-ton pickups. The Blazer proved successful enough that when GM redesigned their trucks for 1973, the Blazer was part of the program. For the second-generation Chevrolet Blazer, the top was abbreviated, just covering the rear section aft of the cab. It was copied by Chrysler with the Dodge Ramcharger and Plymouth Trail Duster in 1974, and by Ford with the second-generation of the popular Bronco in 1978. Showing just over 100 miles since an exhaustive frame-off restoration, this custom 4x4 1973 Chevrolet Blazer leaves nothing undone. Paint and bodywork (taken down to the metal) were carefully and meticulously completed with all new moldings, exhaust and new suspension undercarriage parts, including a 4” Rough Country lift. Now running perfectly, the 350ci 4-bolt main engine was sent out to the machine shop for a complete rebuild, including new seals and rings – all backed by an equally rebuilt automatic transmission. The interior features new Dakota Digital gauges and a nicely appointed, period-correct colored interior and carpet. The air conditioning blows cold for a nice comfortable cabin, and the top comes off easily for a sporty convertible feel if desired.

DODGE VIPER RT/10 ROADSTER
The Dodge Viper, with its powerful engine, minimalist straightforward design, muscular and aggressive styling and high performance, debuted as a concept in January 1989, with the first customers getting delivery of their cars in early 1992. From the start, the car was a raw beast, powered by a massive V10 engine heavily modified by Lamborghini, which at the time was owned by Chrysler. Still as aggressive as ever, the Viper soldiers on today as an unabashed example of how supercars are built in America. This car, remarkably, has traveled only 5,603 miles since leaving the factory. It was originally delivered at Cerritos Dodge in California, where it remained in the same hands for about 14 years, consistently passing inspections and emissions. Two subsequent owners in Nevada also kept it neat and tidy, storing it indoors and never letting it see inclimate weather. Original stickers and factory markings in the fender wells are still apparent. Finished in the eponymous Viper Red, this extremely well-preserved Viper stands out as would it just have rolled off the assembly line. The iconic three-spoke alloy wheels are in remarkable condition, and the black soft-top with side curtains are still intact and stored in their original case. Included in the sale are the doors and windows (in the cases), car cover, owner’s manual folio and a complete 3” binder for all technical service. The Window Sticker and $20,000 dealer addendum from Cerritos Dodge are laminated and in perfect condition. This ultra-low mileage example is ready for show and motoring. The factory Tremec 6-speed transmission allows great control over the massive 8.0-liter V10 engine, and the all-aluminum suspension adds precise handling. These early Vipers, with their raw power and simple nature, are starting to show their potential as collectibles. Lacking the complexity of most supercars, the first-generation Viper offers raw and pure driving experience at a tremendous value.

FORD SHELBY GT350R
The Ford Shelby GT350 musters up memories of ready-built race cars and road-racing glory. Nostalgia is sweet, but the pony-car performance war – now five decades old – is vicious and shows no signs of abating. Ford’s response was the raucous Shelby GT350R – the screaming track-tuned naturally aspirated flat-plane-crank V8 (code-named Voodoo) that revs to 8,200 rpm and channels its 526 horses through a gratifying 6-speed manual gearbox. The GT350R is optimized for extra performance, with more aggressive chassis tuning. The vehicle has a redesigned front splitter as well as a huge carbon-fiber rear wing, which help improve and enhance the balance between down-force and lift. Notice the 19-inch carbon-fiber wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, as well as its red brake calipers, which come in handy when bringing the monster to a halt. Inside are Recaro-wrapped racing seats with striking red contrast stitching. The 920A equipment group (the wheels, wheel locks and rear carbon-fiber spoiler), painted black roof (just 27 built had this option), vehicle cover and electronics package (dual-zone electric temperature control) round out the optional equipment. Built the week of June 14, 2018, and one of only 107 wearing the one-year-only color of Lead Foot Gray, this R-model shows just a touch over 400 miles on the odometer and is very much still “in the wrapper.” Everything the first owner would receive upon delivery is still there: The actual certificate of origin, all documents from its arrival in Arizona off the rail, original Window Sticker and folder of corresponding paperwork. The plastic covering the driver’s seat was essentially all that was removed – and even it was kept! With such low mileage and having not been out on the track, the car is about as “new” as you could ask. Ultimately, it’s a rare and complete showstopper, making no compromise for your day-to-day life on the track or on the road.

FORD GALAXIE 500 LIGHTWEIGHT
Ford adopted “Total Performance” as its corporate mantra back as early as 1961, and dove into Indy, NASCAR and drag racing with full force. The company, with ambitious racing plans for 1963 that involved making the Galaxie even more competitive than it already was, announced a limited-production “special lightweight performance vehicle” to be offered to drag racers nationwide. Just 200 were built, all based on the production Galaxie with a more aerodynamic semi-fastback roofline, and all dressed in Corinthian White with red interiors. At the heart of the new Galaxie was Ford’s legendary 427ci V8 engine, equipped with an aluminum low-riser manifold sporting factory cast-iron high-performance headers and two Holley 4-barrel carburetors, and factory-rated at 425hp. Because of the engine’s immense 480 ft/lbs of torque, an aluminum safety bellhousing was installed in front of a Ford Toploader close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission. Bringing the car to a halt were Police Interceptor brakes. But the Blue Oval knew that, to be more competitive, the car had to lose a lot of weight. To accomplish this, fiberglass was used for the hood, front fenders, decklid and inner fender liners. Aluminum front and rear bumpers and brackets, as well as a lightweight frame, were put into play. Many factory-standard items, inside and out, were jettisoned. The result was a vehicle some 425 pounds lighter than a fully equipped Ford Galaxie 500 XL hardtop. This example, with just over 400 miles on the odometer, is currently owned by the nephew of Ford Drag Racing legend Les Ritchey. Discovered in an Arizona collection of old drag cars, the current owner authenticated the Galaxie and then took it with him to California, where it was meticulously restored. Since its restoration, the car has been shown at a number of events in Southern California. It is unquestionably a rare example of Ford drag racing history.

FORD FAIRLANE THUNDERBOLT
This early Thunderbolt is one of the documented 100 produced and one of the few remaining examples of Ford’s all-out assault on drag racing in the 1960s. Ford delivered the Thunderbolt Fairlane 500s as K-code, high-performance 289ci, 4-speed cars. They arrived less the engine and transmission. By ordering the K-code engine, the car was shipped with larger brakes and the legendary Ford 9-inch differential. The chassis was reinforced and modified to accommodate a 427ci “high-riser” FE engine with two 4-barrel carburetors, the original steel hood and front quarter-panels were replaced with fiberglass, and a special “teardrop” hood was installed. Weight-saving measures included the elimination of many items; what remained inside the car was a single driver’s sun visor, windshield wiper and seat belt, as well as lightweight Bostrum Thinline racing seats. The Thunderbolts were also delivered with drag racing slicks as standard equipment. This particular example was delivered to Max Larson Ford in Coldwater, Michigan, on December 26, 1963, and resold on April 21, 1964, to Jack Mefford Ford in Springfield, Ohio, where it was campaigned throughout the Ohio Valley. Originally produced with an automatic transmission, this car was quickly converted to a Ford Toploader 4-speed manual. This common Thunderbolt conversion created a very competitive car in the Super Stock (S/S) classification. The current owner, whose late uncle was Ford drag racing legend Les Ritchey, purchased the car in 2015 from a collector’s estate; it had been stored in an Arizona warehouse for an estimated 30 years and the odometer indicated less than 400 miles. The vehicle then underwent a meticulous yearlong nut-and-bolt concours restoration to bring it back to “as campaigned” in the 1960s. After its restoration, the car was displayed at some major Concours d’Elegance events throughout California in 2017, garnering several Best in Class and First in Class awards, as well as the Historical Vehicle Association’s National Automotive Heritage Award at the Carmel-By-The-Sea Concours. This historically significant car comes with a Letter of Authentication from the Thunderbolt Owners Association, as well as a Ford dealer memorandum dated February 21, 1964.

FORD MUSTANG COBRA SVT
The Ford Mustang Cobra is the quintessential muscle car. It stands out as one of the best-looking vehicles on the road. The Cobra has always represented the next step from joyriding to the thrill of the race as you whip around corners with tight handling at blazing speeds. With different lines of Cobras over the years, it’s easy to think that the Mustang Cobra has always been with us. However, there were years when this king of the road skipped a new model or retired early to address concerns with overall Mustang production. As the Cobra has always been the pinnacle of performance, the SVT legacy with more powerful engines, handling upgrades and design cues, blossomed again for a fourth generation beginning in 1994. Production numbers show only 760 1995 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra two-door coupes were ordered like this one, in black clear coat with a black leather interior. This example is one of the lowest-mileage Cobras in existence, showing just 105 actual miles on the odometer and literally still “in the wrapper.” This collectible and desirable high-performance Mustang Cobra has existed almost 25 years without the removal of all plastic protecting the interior from the dealer. Never dealer-prepped, it represents a stunning and remarkable time capsule, with all documents and property meticulously preserved just like the day it was delivered. The original MSRP, still on the passenger window, shows this Cobra came with the Preferred Equipment Package (speed control, rear window defroster, air conditioning and floor mats), keyless remote, upgraded Mach 460 AM/FM stereo cassette, compact disc player and leather surface sport bucket seats. A framed copy of dealer invoice and Window Sticker, manuals, books, copy of original purchase contract and title, and two binders summarizing all the provenance from new will all be given to the next owner.

PLYMOUTH 'CUDA
In the glory days of Trans Am racing, great drivers like Sam Posey and Mark Donohue waged war on the racetracks of America in some of the best cars ever built. Ford’s Boss 302 and Chevrolet’s Camaro did regular battles that made for some of the sport’s greatest moments. Not to be left out was Plymouth, which not only fielded a great car in the form of the ’Cuda, but also won its fair share of races, too. In 1970 Plymouth released an all-new ’Cuda. Abandoning its small-car roots, the new E-body platform unveiled a car as exciting as anything else on wheels. With the potent 440ci optional engine under the hood, it upped the ante to create what has arguably become one of the ultimate muscle cars. Timeless styling, powerful engine, limited numbers, racing pedigree and street credibility that lasts to this day (so much so that even many non-car people recognize the name) have all combined to make the ’Cuda a blue-chip investment. This example was originally built at the Los Angeles, CA, assembly plant and retains its matching-numbers 440ci, 375hp engine. Sporting its factory-optioned air conditioning with front heater, it was rotisserie-restored and finished in the original Dark Burnt Orange Metallic color. During restoration, an engine rebuild, automatic transmission removal, inspection and resealing was completed. All chassis items were removed for restoration, and the undercarriage was stripped and repainted. It has new fuel and brake lines, headliner, new body and glass rubber seals. The interior has the high-back seats, console and dash – all in pristine condition. Upgrades include power brakes and three-speed wiper system. A binder showing photos of the restoration is included with the sale.

SHELBY COBRA CSX 8000 ROADSTER
Debuting at the 1962 New York auto show with a bare aluminum finish completed by hand with steel wool, the first Shelby Cobra captured the full attention of both the public and the motoring press. Terrorizing racetracks around the globe, the Cobra became one of the most iconic American muscle cars in history and was said to be a genuine assault weapon of handling and performance. Today, the Cobra is instantly recognizable, with original examples selling regularly in excess of one million dollars. Not to be confused with a replica or a kit car, this fully documented Shelby has a proper CSX number, a Manufacturers Statement of Origin and is signed by Carroll Shelby. Only a small number were built each year, and each one is included in the official Shelby Registry. The “8000 Series” marks the continuation of where it all started. The 289 Street Roadster, or S/R, is a cleanly designed street car originally conceived by Carroll Shelby in 1962. These Cobras are supplied with under-car exhaust, wire wheels and all the street options of the day, including leaf spring suspension. There are improvements for safety and drivability, such as rack & pinion steering, superior brakes, improved cooling and a heavy-duty Tremec 5-speed transmission. With a Statement of Origin of May 25, 2005, the original owner purchased this Cobra through XK’s Limited in San Luis Obispo, who assembled it to his exacting specifications. Finished in LeMans Blue with black vinyl interior, today the odometer reads just 513 miles from new. Powered by an original 289ci Ford V8, upgraded with 351 heads ported with larger valves and more, the entire assembly was balanced and has a compression ratio of 9.6:1. Other standard equipment includes AutoMeter 289-type gauges, Baer racing brakes and 72-spoke wire wheels. A complete binder supporting the purchase, title, registration, build specifications, engine costs, and all receipts and communication from builder to the original owner are included. Titled as a 0000 Special Construction, this classic “slab-sided” 289 Shelby Cobra Street Roadster is now ‘turn-key ready’ for immediate delivery and enjoyment for the next owner.

FORD FAIRLANE THUNDERBOLT
This early Thunderbolt is one of the documented 100 produced and one of the few remaining examples of Ford’s all-out assault on drag racing in the 1960s. Ford delivered the Thunderbolt Fairlane 500s as K-code, high-performance 289ci, 4-speed cars. They arrived less the engine and transmission. By ordering the K-code engine, the car was shipped with larger brakes and the legendary Ford 9-inch differential. The chassis was reinforced and modified to accommodate a 427ci “high-riser” FE engine with two 4-barrel carburetors, the original steel hood and front quarter-panels were replaced with fiberglass, and a special “teardrop” hood was installed. Weight-saving measures included the elimination of many items; what remained inside the car was a single driver’s sun visor, windshield wiper and seat belt, as well as lightweight Bostrum Thinline racing seats. The Thunderbolts were also delivered with drag racing slicks as standard equipment. This particular example was delivered to Max Larson Ford in Coldwater, Michigan, on December 26, 1963, and resold on April 21, 1964, to Jack Mefford Ford in Springfield, Ohio, where it was campaigned throughout the Ohio Valley. Originally produced with an automatic transmission, this car was quickly converted to a Ford Toploader 4-speed manual. This common Thunderbolt conversion created a very competitive car in the Super Stock (S/S) classification.

After its restoration, the car was displayed at some major Concours d’Elegance events throughout California in 2017, garnering several Best in Class and First in Class awards, as well as the Historical Vehicle Association’s National Automotive Heritage Award at the Carmel-By-The-Sea Concours. This historically significant car comes with a Letter of Authentication from the Thunderbolt Owners Association, as well as a Ford dealer memorandum dated February 21, 1964.

FORD MUSTANG COBRA SVT
The Ford Mustang Cobra is the quintessential muscle car. It stands out as one of the best-looking vehicles on the road. The Cobra has always represented the next step from joyriding to the thrill of the race as you whip around corners with tight handling at blazing speeds. With different lines of Cobras over the years, it’s easy to think that the Mustang Cobra has always been with us. However, there were years when this king of the road skipped a new model or retired early to address concerns with overall Mustang production. As the Cobra has always been the pinnacle of performance, the SVT legacy with more powerful engines, handling upgrades and design cues, blossomed again for a fourth generation beginning in 1994. Production numbers show only 760 1995 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra two-door coupes were ordered like this one, in black clear coat with a black leather interior. This example is one of the lowest-mileage Cobras in existence, showing just 105 actual miles on the odometer and literally still “in the wrapper.” This collectible and desirable high-performance Mustang Cobra has existed almost 25 years without the removal of all plastic protecting the interior from the dealer. Never dealer-prepped, it represents a stunning and remarkable time capsule, with all documents and property meticulously preserved just like the day it was delivered. The original MSRP, still on the passenger window, shows this Cobra came with the Preferred Equipment Package (speed control, rear window defroster, air conditioning and floor mats), keyless remote, upgraded Mach 460 AM/FM stereo cassette, compact disc player and leather surface sport bucket seats. A framed copy of dealer invoice and Window Sticker, manuals, books, copy of original purchase contract and title, and two binders summarizing all the provenance from new will all be given to the next owner.

PLYMOUTH 'CUDA
In the glory days of Trans Am racing, great drivers like Sam Posey and Mark Donohue waged war on the racetracks of America in some of the best cars ever built. Ford’s Boss 302 and Chevrolet’s Camaro did regular battles that made for some of the sport’s greatest moments. Not to be left out was Plymouth, which not only fielded a great car in the form of the ’Cuda, but also won its fair share of races, too. In 1970 Plymouth released an all-new ’Cuda. Abandoning its small-car roots, the new E-body platform unveiled a car as exciting as anything else on wheels. With the potent 440ci optional engine under the hood, it upped the ante to create what has arguably become one of the ultimate muscle cars. Timeless styling, powerful engine, limited numbers, racing pedigree and street credibility that lasts to this day (so much so that even many non-car people recognize the name) have all combined to make the ’Cuda a blue-chip investment. This example was originally built at the Los Angeles, CA, assembly plant and retains its matching-numbers 440ci, 375hp engine. Sporting its factory-optioned air conditioning with front heater, it was rotisserie-restored and finished in the original Dark Burnt Orange Metallic color. During restoration, an engine rebuild, automatic transmission removal, inspection and resealing was completed. All chassis items were removed for restoration, and the undercarriage was stripped and repainted. It has new fuel and brake lines, headliner, new body and glass rubber seals. The interior has the high-back seats, console and dash – all in pristine condition. Upgrades include power brakes and three-speed wiper system. A binder showing photos of the restoration is included with the sale.

SHELBY COBRA CSX 8000 ROADSTER
Debuting at the 1962 New York auto show with a bare aluminum finish completed by hand with steel wool, the first Shelby Cobra captured the full attention of both the public and the motoring press. Terrorizing racetracks around the globe, the Cobra became one of the most iconic American muscle cars in history and was said to be a genuine assault weapon of handling and performance. Today, the Cobra is instantly recognizable, with original examples selling regularly in excess of one million dollars. Not to be confused with a replica or a kit car, this fully documented Shelby has a proper CSX number, a Manufacturers Statement of Origin and is signed by Carroll Shelby. Only a small number were built each year, and each one is included in the official Shelby Registry. The “8000 Series” marks the continuation of where it all started. The 289 Street Roadster, or S/R, is a cleanly designed street car originally conceived by Carroll Shelby in 1962. These Cobras are supplied with under-car exhaust, wire wheels and all the street options of the day, including leaf spring suspension. There are improvements for safety and drivability, such as rack & pinion steering, superior brakes, improved cooling and a heavy-duty Tremec 5-speed transmission. With a Statement of Origin of May 25, 2005, the original owner purchased this Cobra through XK’s Limited in San Luis Obispo, who assembled it to his exacting specifications. Finished in LeMans Blue with black vinyl interior, today the odometer reads just 513 miles from new. Powered by an original 289ci Ford V8, upgraded with 351 heads ported with larger valves and more, the entire assembly was balanced and has a compression ratio of 9.6:1. Other standard equipment includes AutoMeter 289-type gauges, Baer racing brakes and 72-spoke wire wheels. A complete binder supporting the purchase, title, registration, build specifications, engine costs, and all receipts and communication from builder to the original owner are included. Titled as a 0000 Special Construction, this classic “slab-sided” 289 Shelby Cobra Street Roadster is now ‘turn-key ready’ for immediate delivery and enjoyment for the next owner.
