1964 Ford Falcon Ranchero Pickup
Lot # 912 1964 Ford Falcon Ranchero Pickup; S/N 4R27U164133; Wimbledon White/Red vinyl, cloth; Modified restoration, 2- condition; Hammered Sold at $26,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $28,600. No Reserve – 289 V-8, Tremec 5-speed, 9 inch Ford axle with 3.73 Traction-Lok, 4-wheel disc brakes, 5-spoke Torque-Thrust style wheels, blackwalls, CD stereo, black vinyl bed cover, woodrim steering wheel. – Fair repaint and chrome trim. Good major chrome and upholstery. Erratic door fit. As good as it needs to be. Very good underhood but the 289 V-8 that resides there replaced the 170 cubic inch 101 hp six that came from the factory. A handful to drive, but also promises to be a lot of fun. A bed load of concrete blocks might make it hook up better. Amply priced based on its potential for good times and entertaining burnouts.
1931 Ford Model A Roadster
Lot # 1002 1931 Ford Model A Roadster; S/N RBT05J99410715123; Black Cherry/Red leather; Recent restoration, 2 condition; Hammered Sold at $50,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $55,000. No Reserve – S-W tach, conventional headlights in chrome shells, flathead V-8 with Edelbrock heads, three Stromberg 97s on an Offenhauser intake, Mallory distributor and coil, beehive oil filter, B-W T-10 4-speed, Buick aluminum drum brakes. – Clean and sharp. Sold by RM at Monterey in 2010 for $49,500, then no-saled at Auctions America’s Fall Auburn in 2010 for $56,500 and Mecum’s Indy sale in 2012 for $37,500. Considering that B-J bidders pay six figures for modern Tupperware street rods this authentic steel bodied period-built rod is an outstanding value. It’s the real thing.
1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Fastback
Lot # 1409 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Fastback; S/N 9T02Q177402; Meadowlark Yellow, Matte Black hood/Black vinyl; Unrestored original, 3+ condition; Hammered Sold at $49,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $53,900. No Reserve – 428/335hp, automatic, P/S, P/B, A/C, Rally wheels, Autonav computer, Heuer watches and more old rally equipment. – 1971 SCCA National Rally champion. Original, complete and very nice. Authenticated with build sheet, invoice, titles, bills of sale, a Marti Report, letter from Ford, log book and more. Represented as numbers-matching. This is the real deal, an authentic SCCA TSD Rally Champion with all its equipment, impeccably documented and in very good condition. The new owner got a significant piece of Ford ‘Total Performance’ history at a modest price. It is much more history and performance than Shelby GT500s bringing double this money.
1993 Chevrolet Lumina NASCAR #3
Lot # 1585 1993 Chevrolet Lumina NASCAR #3 Original; S/N 4931012; Black, Goodwrench #3/Black; Competition car, original as-raced, 3 condition; Hammered Sold at $100,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $110,000. No Reserve – Dale Earnhardt Sr’s car for Inaugural Brickyard 400 – Raced in 1993 & 1994 – Won the 1994 Food City 500 at Bristol. As-raced. – Dented and scratched, exactly as it was when Dale Earnhardt, Sr. pulled it off the track at Bristol in the first night race there. Lumina is a forgettable GM mistake, but Dale Earnhardt, Sr. isn’t and this car, bumped, bent and bruised, is emblematic of him and his driving style. A few years ago when the Earnhardt legend was in full flower it could have brought much more than this but today it’s appealing only to a subset of collectors, and too important in its condition to be put back on track in vintage events. It could have brought more without being silly, but neither is this result unreasonable.
1999 Ferrari F355 F1 Fiorano Spider
Lot # 1587 1999 Ferrari F355 F1 Fiorano Spider; S/N ZFFXR48A8X0116504; Red/Tan leather; Black cloth top; Unrestored original, 2- condition; Hammered Sold at $68,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $74,800. No Reserve – F1 gearbox, SF shields, red calipers. – Clean original car with 7,327 miles. Driver’s seat bolster scuffed. Good original paint and top. A good, sound F355 that appears to have been babied, but without any evidence of major service which makes this price a bit generous for an example that may need to have its engine out in the near future.
1986 Ferrari 412 Berlina
Lot # 1613 1986 Ferrari 412 Berlina; S/N ZFFYD24B000063601; Dark Grey/Parchment leather; Visually maintained, largely original, 3- condition; Hammered Sold at $27,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $29,700. No Reserve – Automatic, Alpine CD stereo, A/C. – Decent repaint, sound original upholstery. Dashtop delaminating. Grubby original underhood. Sold at Russo and Steele in Monterey in August for $39,600, this has been an expensive five month ownership experience. The price here is more reasonable for this car’s automatic transmission and generally unattractive condition.
2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo NASCAR Jeff Gordon
Lot # 3015 2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo NASCAR Jeff Gordon #24; S/N 24-387; Blue, Red #24 DuPont/Black; Competition restoration, 2+ condition; Charity Fundraiser, no buyer’s premium $350,000 $350,000.

Fourteen races, two wins (Chicagoland in 2006 and Charlotte in October 2007), four top fives and five top tens. Documented by Hendrick Racing. A rerun of B-J 2009 Lot #1274, a charity sale for $500,000, now accompanied by a street car replica. Presented on the block by Jeff Gordon and Rick Hendrick with the fanfare and excitement that B-J does best. The result is mildly disappointing, but it raised a lot of money for a good cause.
