Cool Cars at Barrett-Jackson
|Lot 39.1: 1969 Buick Custom Sport Wagon - $14,850|
A 400 cubic inch "big block" with 350 Turbo transmission was found in the GS series.
|Lot 461: 1991 Chevrolet Corvette Callaway ZR1 - $30,800.|
The fourth-generation Corvette isn’t remembered fondly but in the hands of noted Corvette tuner Calloway, this ZR1 makes 550hp through a six-speed manual. It’s a very rare find.
|Lot 519: 1981 Chevrolet Camaro - $6050. |
Second-generation Camaros are quickly rising in value. This particular example has Z/28 trim, T-tops, and a 350 cubic-inch V8. The buyer got a bargain.
|Lot 807: 1967 Chevrolet Impala SS Convertible - $22,000|
Impalas were all over, but one of the best buys was this all original 1967 SS. This car has all the right parts, including the 275hp 327 cubic-inch V8 mated to a four-speed manual transmission.
