Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

This weekend is the annual Barrett-Jackson auction in Palm Springs, Florida, where hundreds of classic and one-of-a-kind vehicles will cross the block and be sold to the highest bidder. A great many of the featured vehicles on the docket are Bowtie-branded, so we wanted to take a look at just a sampling of some of the amazing Chevrolets that will be available for the taking.

Lot #126 – 1971 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray T-Top Coupe

1971 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray T-Top Coupe


This Stingray is extremely rare—one of a mere 1,417 examples built. It was the recipient of a frame-off restoration (documented via photographs and receipts), and it still houses the original 350/330-horsepower LT1 engine. The interior is completely redone in sharp-looking Bridgehampton Blue vinyl and carpet, which matches the exterior color.

Lot #165 – 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

This Rally Red ‘Vette is the very definition of cherry, recently benefiting from a frame-on restoration that granted it a new top and interior. With period-correct heads, intake, carburetor, transmission, and rear end, you’d be the talk of any vintage car show if you were to roll up in this piece.

Lot #384 – 1964 Chevrolet Impala Custom

1964 Chevrolet Impala Custom

Custom-built and designed by Hot Rods by Steve and Carroll’s Custom Metal Works, this Impala comes in a unique Jade Mist green hue and features carbon fiber side molding, modified grille, and Cowl Induction hood. Features a GM Performance 502 crate engine, which is  bolstered by an Edelbrock intake with four-barrel carburetors, Sanderson ceramic headers, and Borla side exhaust system with XR-2 Sportsman mufflers.

Lot #425 – 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Custom

This custom-built ’67 Chevelle SS sports a 600-horsepower Katech “Street Attack” LS7 mated to a cryo-treated T56 six-speed transmission. It features a Detroit Speed and Engineering front suspension with tubular arms and rack and pinion steering; 14-inch Wilwood rear brakes with four-piston calipers; Roadster Shop Stage III chassis; and an exterior decked out in custom Daytona Blue paint with Speed Silver GT stripes.

The first of 69 COPO Camaros will be auctioned off with all proceeds benefiting Achilles Freedom Team. The last of the fifth-gen COPO Camaros is powered by a 555-horsepower combination of a 350 LSX V8 engine with a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger and has been hotly anticipated since it made its debut at SEMA last November.
