Belvedere 2 dr. post sedan.  This is an original Florida garage kept car.  This is where my friend found it I think in 1994 or 95'.  It is original paint / interior / never wrecked or rusted body.  This survivor was a 318 V-8 automatic, manual drum brakes and steering.  Optional 3 spd automatic tranny.  It has since been repainted back in 99" after I  finished building it in 1997 into a nostalgia Max Wedge clone.  I am selling this car that I built for him now at the request of his father as he is on his last legs in life.  So don't fuck with me on this..  He has been wheelchair bound for the last 40 years due to a plane crash some 40 years ago at 19.  He has been ill for the last 4 years and I have driven it on and off to keep it breathing maybe a total of 20 miles in this time.  Car has 102,000 original miles.  I will best describe the car as my memory allows.  Last time he drove the car himself, street driven only and never made it to the track, he pulled the front wheels about 6" on so on the street!!!!  By the way you can fit 10 people in the trunk!!!

Engine; Real deal 1964 426 Max Wedge engine all date coded block / heads/ intake, that was bought complete carbs to pan from a mutual friend of ours in Tennessee.  This engine was pulled with low miles, like no miles and hid away, from an early 1964 race car Chrysler delivered to him in late 1963 way back when to race in super stock.  How cool!!!!  Anyway it was never touched until we got it and it mich'ed out std. bore, std. / std. crank perfect.  Engine had original forged super high compression 12-1 pistons, I replaced with speed pro 10 or 10.5 pistons installed and internally balanced with cloyes true roller, purple shaft hyd. flat tappet either .509 or the max version .520 lift. The cam sounds killer and runs really well in this engine combo.   Better springs of course, rings, bearings.  Engine is virgin as I remember.  Don't ask about carbs, manifolds, oil pan.. as the original date coded crap I think he sold some time ago as I don't see it around.  Has Milodon 8 qrt external pickup pan with indy billet pump and external Earls large oil cooler for street use.  Carbs are carter super comp. edelbrock 750 cfm 1405's I think.  Chrysler aluminum water pump housing and performance high flow aluminum water pump.

'Blood Muscle' auction to sell impressive collection of ill-begotten classic cars

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 09:31:00 EST

The old saying goes that if you can't do the time, don't do the crime. But being a criminal can involve more than just taking a trip to the big house; it can also mean losing possessions purchased from any ill-gotten gains. Still, one man's loss is another's gain, and if you're in Lodi, NJ, on September 12, you stand the chance to buy some of the ultimate muscle cars from the US Marshals in what is being gruesomely nicknamed the Blood Muscle auction.
The grisly moniker was earned because all of the vehicles belonged to the president of a blood testing company who is facing prison time for alleged bribery, according to Hemmings. After all, they are muscle cars bought with actual blood money. The seven-vehicle collection includes some of the ultimate muscle cars ever made, and the original buyer clearly had an eye for rarity.
This cornucopia of V8 power includes a teal 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429, a 1967 Shelby GT500 Mustang, an orange 1970 Plymouth Superbird, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS convertible and perhaps most prized of all - a trio of 1969 Yenko Chevys with a Chevelle, Nova and Camaro all represented. From the included photos, all of them look to be in fantastic condition.

'71 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible sells for $3.5M [w/video]

Mon, 16 Jun 2014 09:29:00 EST


We're plenty used to seeing classic cars selling for millions of dollars. It's just that they're usually European: Ferraris, Bugattis, Mercedes and the like. There are some rare American exceptions, usually wearing the names Duesenberg or Shelby. But what we have here is the most expensive Chrysler product ever sold at auction.
The vehicle in question is a Plymouth Barracuda - specifically a 1971 Hemi Cuda Convertible, chassis #BS27R1B315367 - that Mecum Auctions just sold after eight solid minutes of feverish bidding for a high bid of $3.5 million at its auction in Seattle, Washington. That figure positively eclipses the $2.2 million paid for a strikingly similar Hemi Cuda (chassis #BS27R1B269588) fetched nearly seven years ago in Scottsdale and another that was the first muscle car to break the million-dollar mark in 2002.

Barrett-Jackson 2014: 1970 Plymouth Hemi Superbird passes half a million dollars

Sat, 18 Jan 2014 17:01:00 EST

The Plymouth Superbird is one of those classic American cars from the muscle car era that has captured the imagination of all sorts of automotive enthusiasts long after its presence on roads and race tracks wore away. It's easy to see why. Where else but in the Swingin' Sixties and Seventies would a car leave the factory with an aerodynamics package that included a pointy beak and a rear spoiler that sat several feet above the rear deck?
The example you see above, which was born in 1970, is one of the finest Superbirds we've ever seen. Combine its complete restoration with its original 426 Hemi engine, and it's no surprise that it managed to bring in a cool half million dollars (plus 10 percent in fees) at Barrett-Jackson. See it yourself in our high-res image gallery above, and scroll down below for the official auction description.
