Mecum Auction Presents - Lot # S116 70 ½ Chevrolet Camaro

The early years of Pro Stock racing saw some of the most exciting heads-up racing and the most intense fan support the sport had ever experienced. The 1971 season saw some spectacular matchups, with legendary racers like "Dyno Don" Nicholson, "Dandy" Dick Landy, Sox & Martin and the man from Malvern, Pennsylvania, Bill "Grumpy" Jenkins. Jenkins had been a well-known fixture at tracks since GM's factory racing days. As a privateer, Jenkins went on to represent Chevrolet and soon became one of their most successful racers ever. This 1970 ½ Camaro was the first car that Jenkins built specifically for the class, and its track record with Jenkins, Bruce Larson and later, East Coast racer Richie Zul is nothing short of legendary. Grumpy's Toy VII has been painstakingly restored to its original race configuration, including a correct "512" cast-iron 427 block, aluminum heads, and Weiand tunnel ram with "period correct" 750 cfm Holley double-pumper carbs. Additionally, the Camaro was finished in its original race livery and looks like it emerged from a time machine. It was recently featured in Super Chevy magazine and is in concours condition.

Mecum Auction Presents - Lot # S115 1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda
This is the very car that "Mr. Four-Speed," the legendary Ronnie Sox, piloted to 14 dominating wins in the 1971 NHRA season. The '71 'Cuda represented the pinnacle of performance for the Chrysler factory drag racing program and also for the Sox & Martin team, as oppressive weight breaks, the discontinuation of the Hemi and rule changes favoring tube-framed small-block racecars conspired against Pro Stock Mopar racers. Nevertheless, the Sox & Martin '71 Hemi 'Cuda's spectacular racing success that season stands proudly in the record books. The 'Cuda has been treated to an extensive restoration to its 1971 race configuration and is in exquisite condition. It sports the best that the factory had to offer that year, including the famous 426 Hemi with dual-plug cylinder heads, dual quad intake and of course, the 4-speed transmission that Ronnie Sox shifted with such virtuosic skill. It is finished in the original eye-grabbing, red, white and blue "Sox & Martin" livery and never fails to draw huge crowds.

Mecum Auction Presents - Lot # S118 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge
For the 1969 season, Arnie Beswick campaigned a three-car team, the "Super Judge" Funny Car, the "Righteous Judge" Pro Stocker and this original Ram Air IV, 4-speed Judge, which was sponsored by the Chicagoland Pontiac Dealers and competed in NHRA D/Stock. One of only a handful of no-option cars built specifically for drag racing, the Judge was factory-built with a hand-selected Ram Air IV and came without sound deadener or seam sealer to further reduce weight. As a legal D/Stocker, the Judge ran in the 12.40s at 109-110 miles per hour. Featuring period custom paint by Dick Skully, American Racing wheels and a correct Ram Air IV, this car is in its original 1969 race condition and has been authenticated by Mr. Beswick. This Judge is a great time capsule from "The Farmer's" storied career.

Mecum Auction Presents - Lot # S117 1961 Pontiac Ventura
Arnie Beswick's 1961 "Passionate Poncho" Ventura still ranks as one of the most successful Pontiac factory-built racecars of all time. This Bristol Blue hardtop came from the factory as a 389/348 Tri-Power car with the Super Duty heads and camshaft shipped in the trunk. Once installed, the horsepower was raised to 363 horsepower, a number intentionally underrated by the factory. This is the car that Beswick drove to the '61 Daytona Winternationals and won with. Arnie went on to win a large number of Super Stock races throughout the country that season, solidifying his place as a major player in the Super Stock, A/FX and Funny Car wars of the 1960s. This car is an exceptional example of the breed, verified by Mr. Beswick himself. It is finished in the original race livery and is in its correct 1961 race configuration.

2011 Bakersfield March Meet Tony Noto Grumpy's Toy Crash
Real bummer this car crashed. Tony Noto in his 1974 Grumpy's Toy Vega Pro Stock replica. This was hands down my favorite car at the March Meet. My dad had a Popular Hot Rodding centerfold of this car in my room when I was a kid. Let's hope Tony will rebuild...I want to see more Nostalgia Pro Stock cars like this one with the vintage wheels and dry hops (something you don't see anymore). I hope everyone likes my little Diamond P replay tribute.

134726 / 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/lhc3vgu A clean body that’s dropped on a custom suspension, fitted with a leather-lined interior and bolted to a hot LS7 small block, this insane Camaro pro-tourer is the kind of killer classic that makes factory-fresh bowties shake in their run-flats. If you’re shopping for some fully-sorted muscle that puts a modern twist on an old school favorite, you’re looking at your next car! The beneficiary of a professional, frame-off restoration that was completed just last week, this slick ‘69 Camaro features a seamless custom appearance that’s highlighted by an immaculate coat of Charcoal Gray paint. Take one look down the sides of the car’s rock-solid body and it becomes very obvious that great care was taken to ensure every panel is aligned to better-than-new condition. Step closer to that body’s mirror-like paint and check out its straight and ripple-free surfaces, which are a product of both clean OEM sheetmetal and high quality replacement panels. Grab the pivotal pieces of that well-adjusted sheetmetal and experience the kind of excellent fit and finish that’s right at home reflecting a summertime car show. Then step back to admire one very well-done custom that’s built to exacting specifications thanks to a great combination of skilled workmanship and first-rate finishing. Cranking out 513 rear wheel horsepower, the lightweight, high performance LS7 rumbling beneath this car’s hood is a technological testament to the old rule: more cubic inches equals more horsepower! A perfect amount of air and fuel is supplied by a stock GM throttle body that’s been cinched to a polished air tube and a Spectre reusable filter element. That air and fuel mixes in a factory LS7 intake and progresses to CNC-ported cylinder heads that are fitted with a combination of titanium intake valves and sodium-filled Exhaust valves. Immediately following combustion, spent gases roar through 2.5 inch stainless pipes via Kooks long-tube headers. And a big Be Cool radiator, quick-spinning Spal puller fans, new AC Delco plug wires and a polished Vintage Air Front Runner system ensure rocket-like acceleration. Take a gander under this wicked F-Body and you'll find a fully detailed chassis that mixes new age technology with old school durability. At the center of the car’s floors, a fresh Tremec T56 6-speed utilizes a Ring Brothers clutch reservoir to spin a Moser Super 9 rear end that’s fitted with high quality Moser axles and slick 3.31 gears. That drivetrain hangs in a complete Detroit Speed suspension which makes excellent use of a full set of tubular control arms, a beefy Panhard bar and a full set of Koni coli-over-shocks. And torque melts the pavement thanks to painted Rushforth Night Trains which spin 245/35ZR19 Nitto NTO5s in front of 335/30ZR19 Nitto NTO5s. Behind this Camaro’s solid-closing doors you’ll find a supple Upholstery Unlimited interior that wraps firm leather seats in a nice blend of contemporary style and modern convenience. At the front of the car, a custom, leather-topped dash hangs a slick set of Stewart Warner Maximum Performance gauges above modern pushbutton start, a new Sony CD player and controls for a traditional Vintage Air climate system. And in front of the driver, a snazzy Billet Specialties wheel tilts a flat-bottom rim around a subdued Flaming River steering column. With its timeless style, excellent performance and modern comfort, this slick Camaro pro-tourer is an absolute blast to drive and instantly admired wherever it goes.
