Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auctions will feature The Northside Customs Collection, a select group of original American muscle, Resto-Mods, and late-model cars and trucks that will be offered with No Reserve during the annual Scottsdale Auction at WestWorld of Scottsdale, January 21-29, 2023. Headlining the more than two dozen auction vehicles from The Northside Customs Collection is a special 1969 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 (Lot #1353) that is #61 of 69 built and was optioned with a D80 spoiler equipment and AM radio. Also from the collection are two fully restored, matching-numbers 1969 and 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429s (Lot #1354.1 and Lot #1354) and a fully restored 1970 Plymouth HEMI ’Cuda (Lot #1353.1) finished with an In Violet exterior.
“Over the years our Scottsdale Auction has offered some of the world’s finest collections sold almost entirely with No Reserve,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “The Northside Customs Collection is a coveted group of meticulously restored and preserved domestic collectible vehicles. This collection is eclectic as it is rare and features several spectacular examples of proper American muscle.”
Some of the finest examples of Chevrolet models from The Northside Customs Collection include the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 (Lot #1353). Number 61 of 69 built in 1969, it is powered by its matching-numbers all-aluminum 427/430hp V8 engine mated to a M21 4-speed manual transmission and a 4.10 posi-traction rear end. This Camaro is optioned with D80 spoiler equipment and an AM radio, and it comes with a Jerry MacNeish Certificate of Authenticity. Lot #1296.1 is a custom 1957 Chevrolet Nomad powered by an LS3 engine backed by a 6-speed manual transmission and features a full custom chassis and interior.
Collectible MOPARs being offered from The Northside Customs Collection include the 1970 Plymouth HEMI ’Cuda (Lot #1353.1) that is powered by the R-code HEMI engine rated at 425 horsepower and backed by a pistol-grip 4-speed manual transmission. It’s finished in In Violet with a white interior, and a Govier report is included in its sale. Modern Dodge-powered collectibles include a pair of 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demons. Lot #1296 is Torch Red with 66 actual miles and Lot #1295.1 is Billet Silver with 43 actual miles.
“The attention and care that was invested in the vehicles being offered from The Northside Customs Collection is extraordinary,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “It’s an incredibly well-preserved and well-documented offering made up of entirely American automakers and they’re all selling with No Reserve.”
Ford Motor Company is also well-represented within The Northside Customs Collection, including two matching-numbers Boss 429s. Lot #1354 is a fully restored 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 finished in Calypso Coral over a black deluxe interior and Lot #1354.1 is a 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 finished in Wimbledon White over a black deluxe interior.
