Did you know . . .

Dual Redline tires were standard on all 1964.5 to 1966 K Code Mustangs. They were a $49 option for all other Mustangs except the Shelby GT350 (NA)

1969 Plymouth Cuda Fastback 440/375 HP, Automatic



Quote:
Plymouth made the decision in late 1969 production to equip a limited number of hardtop and fastback Barracuda models with the 440/375 HP Super Commando V-8 engine; approximately 360 were built, fewer than 30 of which are documented in existence today. All were fitted with the heavy duty Torqueflite automatic transmission, 3.55 rear end gearing and standard steering and brakes. This Alpine White 440 Cuda fastback was sold new on July 20, 1971 from Shore Chrysler-Plymouth in Highland Park, IL. Factory equipped with a Green bucket seat interior, it incorporates tinted glass, a center console, gauges, Black hood and rocker striping and White painted steelies with dog dish hubcaps.

1970 429CJ FORD TORINO 2 DOOR COUPE - Northwest Edition



Quote:
Before the new generation Torino came out in 1970, the Ford Dealer Association in Oregon got together with an idea to promote the new body style. The special Torino would be unique to the Northwest and 601 were to be produced. Final production was 395. Available in three colors, this one is Pacific Blue with a black hood, dual chrome hood lock pins, dual racing mirrors, rocker panel racing stripes and argent styled wheels, all prevalent to this model. Of the 395 Type N/W only five were 429s and of that only one is a 429CJ. This is that car. Chrome Super Stock wheels and radials added for effect (original wheels and covers go with car). The only other change was to the rear differential. The 3.0 ratio was replaced with a 3.70 gear locker. All of the original tags are still located on the engine, transmission and rear differential. Matching numbers. What makes this car even more interesting is that only 12 Torino's were built total, with the non-ram air 429 Cobra Jet (coded "C" in the VIN). Comes with cool recent photo of original owner and salesman (now in there 80's) with the car parked in front of still operating, selling Ford dealership.

1970 428SCJ MERCURY COUGAR ELIMINATOR



Quote:
This rare and matching numbers 1970 Cougar Eliminator with 428 SCJ Drag Pack has undergone a five year photo documented concours restoration by Cougar specialist KTL Restorations. During the 1970 run, 2,267 Cougars were produced with the Eliminator package. 127 of those Cougars left the factory with the 428 SCJ Drag Pack option. This car is one of five remaining with the rarer C6 automatic, as well as the 3.91 V Code nodular rear registered with David Wyras, the Eliminator registrar for the Cougar Club. Perhaps even more rare than its one of one status documented by the Elite Marti Report, this car retains its original born-with driveline with matching photo documented VINs on the block and transmission. Unique Drag Pack and Eliminator features include a speedo gear reducer, external oil cooler, external power steering cooler, manual choke, performance handling package, Ram Air induction with original factory cut hood and of course the reinforced SCJ reciprocating system with LeMans rods to withstand the rigors of higher RPM drag racing. With ultra-low production numbers, the 1970 428 SCJ Drag Pack Eliminator occupies a rare and unique place among the elite Ford muscle car produced during the golden age of horsepower and torque.

1971 PLYMOUTH HEMI CUDA CONVERTIBLE




Quote:
In 1971 the US muscle car wars had peaked. The result of this was an outstandingly powerful and equally beautiful automobile, the HEMI 'Cuda convertible. This rare beast is one of only 11 ever produced. Commonly thought of as the most desirable muscle car in the world, it is exceedingly unusual to see one of these for sale. This particular offering boasts of highly desirable features. These features include the 426 HEMI V8 engine with two four barrel carburetors, 727 automatic transmission, Super Track Pak package with DANA 60 rear end and 4.11 ratio gears, power convertible top, center console and more. This vehicle was built for Canadian export of which only two were built. In addition, it is finished in its factory correct In Violet (Plum Crazy) paint, making it the only 1971 HEMI 'Cuda Convertible in this color. Following a meticulous restoration to the highest museum standards, it has been inspected and appraised by Mopar guru Galen Govier. A true automotive milestone and extraordinary example of Detroit Muscle at its finest. Has original dealer invoice.

Car sold for $1,320,000 (Commish inc.)

Back in Jan. 2007 another 1971 Hemi Cuda Convertible sold for $2,500,000 (commish inc.).

#1 BATMOBILE



Quote:
There are only a few items in life that are able to capture the soul of an era. Not many people can say they own a pinnacle point in history that revolutionized a particular genre and an entire industry that followed in its footsteps. Maybe it was the catchy theme song that played in the beginning or the comedic/action-packed acting that was followed by "POW"/"BANG" in this TV show, but then there are the real fans that will strongly advocate, till this day, that coming home to watch the Batmobile soar out of the batcave in the Batman TV Series defines a lot of their first childhood loves to hit the television screens. The 1966 Batmobile by George Barris is the most recognized and popular piece of entertainment history, worldwide, that has become an icon, an icon that has been carried from generation to generation of Batmobiles to follow. This vehicle not only marks the significant bat logo that sits on the middle of its door, but a time in television history where they defied the odds of making a car become the star. Still as beautiful as when it first came out of the paint shop, this 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car has been apart of the personal collection of George Barris since he first bought it from the Ford Motor Company for $1. After having a meeting with the producer of the TV Show, William Dozier, George was left with the challenge of 15 days and $15,000 budget. Before George knew it, the Lincoln Futura was underway to becoming what others will always remember to be the Original Batmobile. Besides seeing the likes of the infamous, Adam West and Burt Ward (Batman and Robin), this car has been on a variety of television/movie sets, car shows and museums around the nation. To go even further, this car is exclusively featured in Christopher Nolan's Batmobile Documentary, which is one of the major bonuses in the Dark Knight Rise's DVD. History is being made here at Barret Jackson. This is the 1st TIME that the original Batmobile has been up for sale, since George bought it for that $1. Whether you're a car collector, entertainment enthusiast, or an average Joe looking to buy his dream car, don't miss out on adding this to your very own batcave. Included with the Batmobile will be historical memorabilia and documentation from George's personal archive. **SOLD ON BILL OF SALE ONLY**

Car sold in Jan. 2013 for . . . are you ready for this . . . $4,620,000.00 (CI)

1967 SHELBY GT350 FASTBACK



Quote:
Sitting before you is one of the most unique and important 1967 Shelby Mustangs on the planet. A fully documented Ford pilot show car, built for internal use and displayed at the Los Angeles Auto Show in the fall of 1966. This GT350 boasts first day of production status, which is the earliest completion/build date of any 1967 Shelby. Shelby historians believe that this is the first production 1967 Shelby produced as the Ford VIN is 75 units ahead of any other 1967 Shelby produced. After this special Shelby completed the show circuit, Ford gifted it to the Chairman of Avis Rent a Car. Speculation being that Ford was in discussion with Avis to persuade them to replace the Hertz Rent a Car Shelby Program for 1967. This vehicle retains each and every one of the unique and early hand built, non-production pieces that make these early production 1967 Shelby's incredibly hard to restore. Items such as the one piece grill, steel reinforced hood and deck lid, flat taillight panel, flat gas cap, very rare 4-point roll bar, inboard lights, red upper side marker lights, and documented original hand engraved Shelby ID plate. After extensive research about the cars remarkable history, the current owner completed a very high quality nut and bolt, concourse restoration. Virtually all NOS parts were used in this restoration. A total of 45 miles have been logged since its completion. A Gold Concourse winner at multiple SAAC events. Remarkably, this Shelby retains 100% of its original body panels, along with its original serial numbered engine and transmission, including all original paper work.
