The Barrett-Jackson road show rolls into southern California this weekend for their annual Orange County auction. The 3rd rendition of the OC event takes place at the OC Fair and Event Center June 22 – 24. SPEED will have 16 hours of live coverage over the course of the weekend.
Barrett-Jackson will roll 27 Corvettes across the auction block during the 3 selling days. The Corvettes being offered span each of the first four generations and are all being sans reserve. New owners will select from 4 C1’s, 9 C2’s, 9 C3’s and 4 C4’s. Later model fans will have look elsewhere for a new ride.
Now here’s a look at our favorites coming of this weekend in Orange County.
Lot #367 – 1967 427/400 A/C, 4-speed convertible
This blue/black roadster shows just 59,467 original miles on the odometer. Options include the somewhat rare 400hp 427ci motor, M21 4-speed, air conditioning, side pipes, and a vinyl covered hard top. The 400/4-speed/AC combination makes this a very desirable car to collectors. We just wished the auction listing mentioned some type of documentation for all those nifty options.
Lot #3701 – 1963 Fuelie Coupe
The saddle tan on saddle tan fuelie was originally delivered in Hollywood, CA and recently completed a 3-year body-off restoration under the watchful eye of Noland Adams. The car earned a NCRS Second Flight award last year missing Top Flight by two points. Options include leather seats, tinted power windows, 4.11 rear end, power brakes, 327/360hp fuelie engine, and 4-speed among others. This is a very desirable car with very desirable options that will get lots of attention when it hits the stage.
Lot #374 – 1962 Fuelie Roadster
This matching number fawn / fawn fuelie with manual transmission comes with two tops and a 3.55 rear end. Photos of the fresh restoration go to the new owner. Collectors love fuel injected Corvettes and this one should have lots of bidders trying to take it home with them.
The 2012 Barrett-Jackson Orange County auction takes place June 22nd – 24th at the OC Fair and Events Center. SPEED will have live coverage Friday June 22nd and Saturday June 23rd 2pm-8pm Eastern and Sunday 12pm – 4pm Eastern.
