Yesterday we decided to hit the other Arizona auctions that do not have a lot of Mopar stuff but still have some interesting cars. RM is a very high end auction with mostly European cars, Ferrari’s and older cars. Gooding has a nice mix of stuff as well and is similar to RM but the cars are not as high end. Gooding had an “as found” theme going on with three cars still covered in dust and grime going up for auction.
These cars were from RM and includes a couple of Imperials, a Hemi powered Facel Vega, and a Chrysler 300B. More pics after the jump!
Today was the first day of cars going across the block at Barrett Jackson and it was a very fun and exciting day. They have an all new facility this year with over 1,000,000 square feet of space! It is amazing how big this place it and they are selling over 1,400 cars from Tuesday to Sunday. Here are a couple of cars that stood out to us, we will post many more later this week with more info on what we thought of them. Here are a few teaser shots, will go more in depth on these later. More pics after the jump!
You’re looking at a very true-to-the-original replica of Hurri-Cane II, a car that was campaigned by Bob Cain of Massachusetts back in the day. This isn’t a show circuit car. The owner actually made regular runs in it with battle scars to prove it! And now it’s on eBay! See the article on BangShift for more info. More pics after the jump!
After this very nice first generation Charger was involved in an accident in 2007, the owner took the opportunity to stray from stock by installing a Hotchkiss suspension, adding chassis reinforcements and upgrading the brakes. I’m loving the American Racing Torque Flite wheels. See the story of how the car got it’s name at Petrolicious. More pics after the jump!
Early Rides is raffling off a sweet 1969 Road Runner. It features a 440 6 bbl, 727, Dana 60, four wheel disc brakes and an A12 style lift off hood. Tickets are only $20.00 each with proceeds raised helping to support three charities; Wounded Warrior Homes, Veterans First Orange County and 1st Battalion, 1st Marines Foundation. Find more pictures and how to purchase tickets at Early Rides.
You were expecting a concours restoration, maybe? The latest episode of Hot Rod’s Roadkill finds Freiburger and Finnegan building a Charger from a rolling shell, a motorhome 440 and their Fury’s 727. It took six months–not their usual six days–and in their opinion, it’s the best episode of Roadkill ever. It looks mean and sounds meaner. Video after the jump!
Here are some great shots of The Finer Details showroom and restoration shop in Danville, Indiana posted by Ryan over at Moparts. You may recognize that 1970 Challenger from SEMA and the LA Auto Show. More pics after the jump!
