Final C7 Corvette, Resto-Mods and Customs Highlight Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction June 26–29
Professionally built Resto-Mods, contemporary supercars, 1980s/90s performance vehicles, classic trucks, SUVs and 4x4s and the final-produced seventh-generation Chevrolet Z06 Corvette highlight the docket at the 4th Annual Northeast Auction at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, June 26–29.
Hundreds of collector vehicles and 450-plus pieces of automobilia are expected to be offered, almost all at No Reserve on the Mohegan Sun property in southeastern Connecticut.
“This year has been a year of record sales and massive growth in developing segments of the collector car market. We are thrilled to be a catalyst of these market developments while simultaneously delivering on the segments of the market that continue to be as strong as ever,” says Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Scottsdale-based Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions.®
Among the Resto-Mods is a 1968 Pro-Touring Chevrolet Camaro Custom Coupe, built by RideTech and updated by No Limit Engineering, with a 6.2-liter 8-cylinder engine and 6-speed manual transmission. In addition, a 1968 Ford Mustang Eleanor Tribute Edition will be crossing the block at No Reserve. It’s powered by a 427-cubic-inch 8-cylinder engine backed by a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission.
American muscle cars remain popular: Among these is an extensively documented, matching-numbers 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 powered by a 302-cubic-inch 8-cylinder engine coupled to a M22 heavy-duty manual transmission, and a frame-off-restored, matching-numbers 1968 Oldsmobile 442 convertible, one of 1,518 produced with a 4-speed manual transmission.
Charity is integral to Barrett-Jackson auctions. All of the hammer price from the sale of the final production seventh-generation Chevrolet Z06 Corvette will benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which honors the sacrifice of the New York City firefighter who died during the September 11, 2001, attacks.
“We’re honored to be able to help great companies like GM raise money and awareness for critical organizations like the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation,” says Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “It’s a great privilege to be a part of this historic moment, selling the last Corvette of the current generation in support of our first responders and military heroes.”
