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.
