Lot S96 1964 Shelby Cobra 289

Carroll Shelby Experimental #2242 is well documented in the Shelby American World Registry. Invoiced on February 27, 1964 to Fergus Ford of Skokie, Illinois, it was equipped with the Class A accessory package, which included chromed 5.5-inch wire wheels with "AC" knock-offs, a quick-fill fuel cap, dash-mounted rear-view mirror, wind wings, radio and antenna and chromed bumperettes. After a lengthy stay on the showroom floor, the car eventually sold to a buyer from Texas in the mid-late sixties. In 1969 it was purchased from the first owner by Clark Van Norstrum of Greenwich, CT, who added four 2-barrel downdraft Weber carburetors, a roll bar and a hood scoop. Mr. Van Nostrum owned the car for 27 years until advertising it for sale in 1996 as a Red car with Black interior. Van Nostrum sold the Cobra to R. Leblanc of Los Gatos, CA who in turn sold it to the current owner in 2004. CSX2242 is now fresh from a complete bare-metal restoration during which the hood scoop was removed and a dual 4-barrel manifold and carburetor refitted to return it to its original configuration. An example such as this is very rare and becoming extremely difficult to acquire as more and more disappear into private museums and collections. A classic beauty and a joy to drive, this well-documented no-stories 289 Cobra is ready to thrill and reward its next steward. Highlights: - Documented in Shelby American World Registry - Four owners since new - "Class A" Accessory Package - Chromed 5.5-inch wire wheels with "AC" knock-offs - Quick-fill fuel cap - Dash-mounted rear-view mirror - Wind wings - Radio and antenna - Chromed bumperettes - Modified by first owner: four 2 barrel Webers, roll bar, & hood scoop - Returned to original configuration during recent bare-aluminum restoration

Lot S122 1969 Chevrolet Yenko Camaro 427 450 HP Auto
Gary Holub is acknowledged as the most active and committed Yenko collector ever, with forty-four Yenko machines either currently in his collection or having passed through his ownership. This Daytona Yellow Yenko Camaro is one of the members of that club. Originally sold from Yenko Chevrolet in 1969 and one of only 27 equipped with the 400 turbo Hydra-Matic, the car had a successful career on the East Coast as a competitor in the NHRA's SS/E Automatic class. While it still wears the livery of its drag racing career, the car has otherwise been restored to its original state. As its intended mission would suggest, the car is equipped with few options. The Black interior features standard bucket seats, an AM radio and tilt steering, while dealer-installed items include the special console-mounted Hurst shifter, below-dash gauges, Sun tach and Yenko badges. Beyond its uniqueness as a Yenko car it has the distinction of being the most thoroughly documented Super Camaro and the only one with all its sale paperwork signed by the man himself, Don Yenko. That might never have been known had it not been for a vigilant gentleman named Walter Denorshek. A Yenko employee, Denorshek happened to notice a pile of old papers thrown into a dumpster during a move to a new location. The paperwork for this car was part of the materials rescued that day by Mr. Denorshek, whom we can all thank for saving important documents crucial to the Yenko legacy. Highlights: - Daytona Yellow with Black interior - 427/450 hp engine - Automatic transmission (turbo-Hydramatic) - AM radio - Power steering - Yenko Atlas Cast Aluminum wheels - Power front disc brakes - Extensive documentation - Only Yenko with paperwork signed by Don Yenko

Lot S97 1950 Chevrolet Half Ton Pickup With Calliope
A calliope is a musical instrument that produces its sound by sending air through a series of tuned whistles. Based on the train whistle invented for early locomotives, the calliope was an entertainment fixture on 19th century riverboats and in traveling circuses, which often advertised their arrival by parading a brightly decorated horse-drawn wagon through town, its instrument playing a blaring tune that could often be heard for miles. Patented in 1855, the calliope was originally operated by a music-box-style cylinder and later with a keyboard. Eventually it was also adapted to run like a player piano using music rolls. In the early 1900s compressed air began to replace steam as the instrument's power source. The pickup truck replaced the circus' horse-drawn wagon with the advent of the horseless carriage, and this 1950 Chevrolet half-ton is a delightful reminder of the magical quaintness of those earlier times. A basic yet colorful machine, the truck and its calliope have been completely restored to typical period finery. Brilliant Fire Engine Red paint adorns both truck and instrument, the latter topped with a glorious cropping of polished brass stacks. Played automatically or with its keyboard, the calliope's beautiful music calls the attention of all within earshot, which is quite a distance, making it perfect for issuing a call to your event or for entertaining in a parade. Highlights - Restored Red 1/2 ton with real brass whistle Calliope - Beautiful music calls the attention of all around - Calliope plays automatically or by keyboard - Trucks with a Circus Calliope were used for advertising in years past - Perfect for attention today - Rust free - Great for your business in parades, etc. or just for fun - 54,172 actual miles - 3-speed manual transmission - 6 cylinder engine
