Pull out the checkbooks and start saving your Christmas cash, the 2017 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction is nearly upon us.
And that means we will be seeing some serious collectible metal cross the block, including a trio of sought after Chevrolets.
First up is a 1969 Chevrolet COPO Camaro finished in Daytona Yellow. It’s powered by a date-code-correct L72 427 engine churning out 425 horsepower that is connected to a Muncie 4-speed manual transmission and rare CVE-code posi-traction rear end. The stunner was completely restored in 2010 with original and refurbished parts.
Moving right along, a 1969 Corvette with an L88 big-block V8 engine will be up for grabs. The engine displaces 427 cubic-inches and produces a whopping 430 hp. There are also factory side pipes present and accounted for. Astonishingly, only 16,482 miles have been racked up on the 1969 Corvette and it sits on the original red-striped tires in came with.
There will also be a 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air, which is notable for its 205 horsepower Power Pack engine. And we can’t forget the 1960 Chevrolet Engineering Research Vehicle (CERV). Developed by Zora-Arkus Duntov, the CERV is sure to make a prime piece to any collection of automobiles.
“I couldn’t be more excited about the docket of Chevrolets we have consigned for our 2017 Scottsdale Auction,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “From the Corvette to the COPO Camaro and tri-five Bel Airs, these vehicles represent strides in engineering and advancements in technology that made a lasting impact on the American car culture.”
Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale opens on January 14, 2017.
