1969 Pontiac GTO Convertible
Lot # 733.1 1969 Pontiac GTO Convertible; S/N 242679B172377; Engine # 0644467 YS; Black/Black vinyl; Black vinyl top; Recent restoration, 2 condition; Hammered Sold at $58,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $63,800. No Reserve – 400/350hp, automatic, P/S, P/B, A/C, P/W, Superstock wheels with trim rings, G70-14 Polyglas GT tires, pushbutton radio, console – Fresh, crisp showroom quality restoration with excellent paint, chrome and interior. – A very attractive Triple Black GTO convertible, done to high standards and presented fresh from the restoration shop. If the underlying GTO convertible were free it would be hard to duplicate the quality and detail of this restoration for the price it brought here, a good example of why it’s better to buy them done than to undertake the restoration even of a good, clean original car.
1969 Ford Mustang GT Fastback
Lot # 736 1969 Ford Mustang GT Fastback; S/N 9T02R174281; Acapulco Blue/Black vinyl; Recent restoration, 2+ condition; Hammered Sold at $64,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $70,400. No Reserve – 428/335hp Super Cobra Jet, Ram Air hood, 4-speed, 4.30 Traction-Lok, P/B, Super Drag Pack – Freshly restored to better than new condition but not overdone. A choice Pony Car that should run like a scalded cat. Correct as-delivered configuration documented by a copy window sticker and Elite Marti Report. – Why buy a GT500 and pay for the Shelby logos when the same performance and style is delivered by a high performance Mustang GT like this? Because even the hoi polloi recognize a Shelby Mustang as something special while this GT has to be explained (or better yet demonstrated.) This is a choice Mustang, restored to original condition in attractive colors and it found an appropriately appreciative audience in Palm Beach.
1969 Pontiac GTO Judge 2-Dr. Hardtop
Lot # 740 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge 2-Dr. Hardtop; S/N 242379G127904; Engine # 0417178 WS; Carousel Red/Black vinyl; Recent restoration, 2 condition; Hammered Sold at $77,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $84,700. No Reserve – 400/366hp Ram Air III, 4-speed, 3.55 Safe-T-Track, P/S, P/B, Rally gauges, Rally II wheels, Wide Oval tires, P/B, Hurst T-handle shifter, console, pushbutton radio, hood tach – Restored to nearly like new condition with very good paint, chrome and interior. Underbody is slathered with sealer and the car is dusty where it’s hard to see. Engine compartment is nearly like new. PHS documented Judge, not a dressed up GTO. – It’s hard to imagine a much better GTO than this Judge (OK, maybe if the top went down.) Its restoration is sharp and clean, if somewhat disappointing with the sealer brushed inside the fenderwells, and the Ram Air III and 4-speed make it a paragon of Muscle Cars. It brought an appropriately superior price, fully deserved by its configuration, presentation and rarity.
1959 Dodge Royal Lancer D-500 2-Dr. Hardtop
Lot # 753 1959 Dodge Royal Lancer D-500 2-Dr. Hardtop; S/N M354101498; Metallic Green, Cream/Green vinyl, cloth; Older restoration, 3+ condition; Hammered Sold at $50,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $55,000. No Reserve – 383/320hp, automatic, P/S. P/B, Lancer wheel covers, whitewalls, pushbutton radio, dual rear antennas, dual outside mirrors, swivel seats – A sound, presentable and usable old restoration with more than a few miles. Chassis is oily and caked with a layer of road grunge. Engine is aged and dusty but the paint, chrome and interior are sparkly. Doors fit well. Dash and gauges are clean and fresh. William Munday Collection. – There were only 3,483 Royal Lancer 2-Dr. Hardtops built in 1959, and only a few of them stepped up for the $328 D-500 engine making this a highly unusual and rarely seen combination, especially in these attractive (and very Fifties) colors. It was sold by RM in Monterey in 2007 for $66,000 and is a good value here even though it’s showing the age of its restoration.
1958 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
Lot # 754 1958 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible; S/N J58S100166; Engine # V0726GF; Snowcrest White, Inca Silver Coves, White hardtop/Black; Black vinyl top; Older restoration, 2- condition; Hammered Sold at $90,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $99,000. No Reserve – 283/270hp, 4-speed, WonderBar radio, two tops, spinner wheel covers, whitewalls – 30,263 miles. Restored in 2007 with excellent cosmetics but showing the restoration’s age in the engine compartment. William Munday Collection. – Sold at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale in 2008 for $82,500, this is a superior Corvette, notable for its low mileage. The age of the restoration should be easily resolved with some elbow grease and various cleaning potions. It is a sound value at this price, even though it’s a few bucks more than it brought in early ’08.
1969 Jaguar XKE SII Roadster
Lot # 756 1969 Jaguar XKE SII Roadster; S/N 1R7591; Sable Brown/Tan leather; Black leatherette top; Unrestored original, 3+ condition; Hammered Sold at $64,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $70,400. No Reserve – 4-speed, chrome wire wheels, narrow whitewalls, AM-FM – 10,398 miles. Good original paint starting to microblister. Sound original chrome and upholstery. Underbody is peeling. Engine is aged. Tires are the original Dunlop SP Sports. Not close to like new but appealing. William Munday Collection. – This highly original, low miles Series II Jag brought only a modest premium for its originality and very appealing preservation. It could add a few miles without materially affecting its value, but will need careful mechanical attention (and a new set of tires) before it could be considered reliable enough to be driven any distance.
1954 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
Lot # 757 1954 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible; S/N E54S003930; Polo White, White hardtop/Red vinyl; Black vinyl top; Older restoration, 2 condition; Hammered Sold at $74,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $81,400. No Reserve – 235/150hp, Powerglide, siamesed air cleaners, WonderBar radio, spinner wheelcovers, whitewalls, two tops – 2007 restoration with very good paint, chrome and interior. Uneven door fits. William Munday Collection. – Sold at B-J Scottsdale in 2008 for $95,700 and a good value at today’s price, particularly with both tops.
1960 Chevrolet Corvette FI Convertible
Lot # 759 1960 Chevrolet Corvette FI Convertible; S/N 00867S109049; Engine # 109049 F0??14CS; Roman Red, White coves/Black; Black vinyl top; Older restoration, 2+ condition; Hammered Sold at $117,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $128,700. No Reserve – 283/290hp Fuel Injection, 4-speed, WonderBar radio, spinner wheel covers, whitewalls, 4.11 Positraction – Excellent paint, sparkly chrome, good top and interior. Clean, orderly and like new underhood. Very clean and mostly better than new. William Munday Collection. – Sold for $192,500 at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale in 2008, the condition of this Corvette is beautiful and couldn’t have been much if any better five years ago. It’s impossible to argue with its specifications as only a big tank and brakes could make it any more desirable. The price it brought here is modest but not unreasonable in today’s environment, even though it is a huge drop from the exceptional price it brought under the WestWorld big top in 2008.
1935 Ford Model 18 Phaeton
Lot # 759.1 1935 Ford Model 18 Phaeton; S/N 181981892; Medium Grey/Brown leatherette; Beige cloth top; Unrestored original, 4+ condition; On-site but didn’t cross the block. No Reserve – Wind wings, body color wire wheels, whitewalls, dual outside mirrors, enclosed rear spare – A tired but sound old car. Scratched old repaint, cracked original upholstery, faded old top, pitted, dull chrome. Dry, surface rusted underbody. Intriguing history that might make it worth saving as is. – Described as used on the Gerry family estate in the Catskills and claimed to have been used for hunting trips by luminaries like FDR, Averell Harriman, Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney and others. An intriguing car and reasonably well preserved although probably not good enough to avoid restoration. Unfortunately it never crossed the block, for reasons unstated.
1960 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
Lot # 761 1960 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible; S/N 00867S108206; Engine # 108206 F0518CS; Red, Beige coves/Red; Older restoration, 2- condition; Hammered Sold at $105,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $115,500. No Reserve – Red hardtop. 283/290hp Fuel injection, 4-speed,, Big Brake, Big Tank, quick steering, HD suspension, WonderBar radio, spinner wheel covers, whitewalls – 1999 NCRS Top Flight still nearly fresh and sharp. Heater vent hose disconnected, underbody and chassis are dusty, but a thorough detailing should return it to nearly show-ready condition.. – The age of this Corvette’s restoration is showing, but some attention to details and general cleanup should bring it right back to fresh and lovely condition. In contrast with Lot #759 sold just a little bit earlier, this Corvette has both the RMP 579D Big Brake and 1625A Big tank options as well as RPO 687 heavy duty suspension. Its restoration is older than Lot 759’s but its equipment is much better and it is a sound value at this price. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see it show up in a Corvette dealer’s inventory next week.

  1. Hey Rick….enjoyed your report….there was a 1963 Chevy II Nova convertible sold and I’d like to contact the person who bought the car and I have no idea how to….any help poimting me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated….lee

  2. Lee,
    The only way to do that is to contact Barrett-Jackson. They’ll probably ask you, “Why?”
    Then they’ll contact the buyer and give him your contact information so he/she can call you.
    It’s a little convoluted, but if you were the buyer you’d probably want your privacy protected, and B-J (or any other auction company) doesn’t want to disclose their clients’ identities.
    Good luck.
    Rick
