Chevy Stand-Outs Sold Well at Barrett-Jackson's First Auction of the Year
Barrett-Jackson always starts the New Year with some classic Chevys on the block, and we always look forward to seeing the restored and updated classics for sale. Here are some stand-outs from the 2017 Scottsdale event.
From the Charlie Thomas Collection, this 1954 custom wagon is a Chevrolet 210. It got all dressed up for this event and was presented with a base/clear coat in Tuxedo Black, a Silverline dual exhaust, and professionally airbrushed faux-wood graphics. The bench seating is two-tone and the steering wheel is wood, but this wagon has more than good looks. It's powered by a 350ci engine and a Turbo 350 automatic transmission.
The wagon sold for $37,400.
This 1969 Nova Custom Coupe was also in Tuxedo Black and was topped in black vinyl. More than a beautiful body, it featured an upgraded high-performance 454ci engine, Turbo 400 automatic, and 12-bolt 3.55 posi-traction
The Nova fetched $40,700.
We're not sure if this 1971 Blazer makes us want to go off-road or to a party on the beach, but we know we'd look good getting there. This just-restored "Feathers" Blazer reminds us to "Keep on Truckin'" with its vintage light covers, Chevy 12-bolt rear end, and Dana 44 front axle.
This 1964 Corvair Monza Convertible is ready for Route 66. The manual top is new, which will keep the rain out, and a modern radio was added to keep you rockin’ down the road.
Sold for a mere $6,200, this fun little Chevy leaves you plenty of money to keep on restoring and upgrading.
This modded truck hit a world record. It's a 1950 3100 Custom Pickup that sold for $205,700. The bumpers are actually the factory parts but were reshaped and refitted, and the rear end was modified for a smooth appearance.
Under the hood, a 500 hp Chevrolet Performance Hot Cam LS3 crate engine with 4L65E automatic transmission powers this pickup.
Ah, the elusive Cheetah. It is said this 1964 Chevrolet coupe has "the lowest-mile 1967 genuine Corvette 427ci L88 IT-code crate engine." The car is so rare that only 15 are around today. Its racing history, ownership, and upgrades are well-documented but because it didn't reach reserve, the car disappears until it's time to go back on the block.
Congratulations to all the winning bidders!
