In May of this year, everyone who’s anyone in the classic car aficionado sphere will likely make their way to Texas, as RM Auctions sells off 75 stunning examples from Chris and Paul Andrews’ legendary private collection.
That includes the famous 2001 Buick Blackhawk concept, pictured above.
The Buick Blackhawk was commissioned by Buick, from Advanced Automotive Technologies in Rochester Hills, MI. The grille looks like it came straight out of 1939, while it features many parts from genuine Buick cars from the 1930s, all the way up through the 1980s. The interior has its basis in that of the 1996 Riviera.
The Buick Blackhawk last sold at Barrett-Jackson in 2009, for over $500,000. We didn’t imagine it would be sold off again so soon, but we anticipate that it’s appreciated some since then. It’s a truly stunning, unique pastiche of motoring Americana, and of course, it’s one-of-a-kind.
Combine that with the vast amount of eager, collected wealth bound to be in the room at the RM Auction this May, and we’re guessing that it’ll fetch a pretty penny.
