On June 29, General Motors and Barrett-Jackson will offer the opportunity of a lifetime with the auction of the final production seventh-generation Chevrolet Z06 Corvette. One-hundred percent of the hammer price will benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, named for New York City firefighter Stephen Siller, who died during the September 11 attacks.
This year’s Northeast Docket will feature some of the most coveted, professionally built Resto-Mods, including a 1968 Pro-Touring Chevrolet Camaro Custom Coupe. Originally built by RideTech and updated by No Limit Engineering, this Pro-Touring muscle machine is powered by a 6.2-liter 8-cylinder engine backed by a 6-speed manual transmission. Also crossing the block is a 4-door, 6-passenger 1969 Ford Bronco Custom SUV. This one-of-a-kind Bronco is powered by a Ford Racing 5.0-liter fuel-injected Coyote V8 crate engine and features custom marine-grade saddle upholstery.
Barrett-Jackson’s Northeast Auction will also be home to highly sought-after muscle and custom collector cars, including a 1970 Plymouth Road Runner Petty Superbird Re-creation. A five-year build under the supervision of legendary racer Richard Petty, this high-flying bird is powered by a brand-new old-style 572ci HEMI crate engine coupled to a 4-speed manual transmission. Another offering is a frame-off restored, matching-numbers 1968 Oldsmobile 442 Convertible, one of 1,518 produced with a 4-speed manual transmission.
