Lot S128 1971 Mercury Cougar 429 Cobra Jet 4-speed
Mercury was a force in mid-sixties factory FX racing with its crazy 427 Comets, but by the late sixties had become identified more with luxury than performance. One of the exceptions to this trend was the Cougar, which earned a serious performance reputation in both drag and road racing. A genuine all-matching-numbers concours-quality example of Mercury's ponycar is offered here in the form of this singularly rare 1971 Cougar 429 Cobra Jet 4-speed. Only 18 1971 Cougars were equipped with this top-of-the-line power combination; this car is the only one of that group originally finished in Black.
Fresh from a private Cobra Jet collection, the car's no-expense-spared restoration is evident in every detail from its as-new exterior finish and brightwork to the impeccable Medium Green interior that includes the unmistakable Hurst T-handle shifter. This is the sort of presentation that comes from pride of both ownership and craftsmanship.
A factory A/C car with power steering and brakes, this rare and remarkable car comes with complete documentation that includes a Marti Report.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #59: 1968 Mercury Cougar GT-E 427
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com/store - This week, we're bringing you an
often overlooked muscle car, the 1968 Mercury Cougar GT-E. These were
sporty but comfortable, and the GT-E bought you a 7-liter V8 to make things
interesting. Most were the smooth 428 V8, but some were ordered with the
far less subtle 427 side oiler... like the one in this video. The 427 was
rated at 390 HP and has a great rumble, but the car is refined enough to
drive and enjoy every day. The Brothers Collection is home to several
rare Mercury cats, this is one of the favorites!

Lot S126 1971 Chevrolet Camaro Custom 565 609 HP 6 Speed
This 1971 Chevrolet Camaro is a fine example of a
ponycar-based Resto Mod that combines awesome performance, show-quality
looks and solid reliability. A well-documented two-owner car with only
54,000 original miles, it was purchased after seventeen years in storage by
its third and present owner, who ushered it through an eighteen month
nut-and-bolt restoration to its new status as a world-class Pro-Touring
Resto Mod of considerable muscle.
The engine is a professionally built 565 cubic inch Chevy Dart Big Block
generating an estimated 650 horsepower and 700 lb.-ft.
of torque. 91-plus octane pump gas feeds through a polished intake to
Brodix heads, while a Richmond 6-speed manual and Ford 9" rear end complete
the drive train. A Wilwood four-wheel disc and hydro Boost power brake system provide ample braking
to bring all that power to heel.
Subtle body modifications involving hundreds of hours of work were topped
with a Custom Blue Pearle mix and Performance White Pearle stripes then
finished with multiple coats of clear. Extensive chrome in the engine
compartment and suspension is augmented by the polished stainless steel gas
tank. The car rolls on 17" front and 18" rear Foose Nitrous II wheels.
The interior features custom black leather seats, power windows, keyless
remote locks, factory air conditioning and a complete set of Autometer
gauges. Superb sound comes via a state of the art Kenwood AM/FM receiver,
multi disc CD player, HD radio receiver, and iPod connection.
The extensive work performed by Performance Restorations in Mundelein,
Illinois was quickly rewarded: on the two occasions it has been shown, the
car has won two "Gold Bow Tie Boulevard" awards, the "Diamond" award for
Best of Show First Time Shown Camaro and the "Top Gun" Judges
Choice Award for Best Camaro.

Junkyard Rescue! Saving a 1950 GMC Truck - Roadkill Ep. 31
One of the most incredible junkyards in the history of junk is Turner's
Auto Wrecking in Fresno, California—and on this episode of Roadkill,
Freiburger and Finnegan hit those 100 acres of vintage sheetmetal and go
spelunking for gold! After considerable debate, the guys select a 1950 GMC
shortbed truck that had been off the road for 26 years and jam to get it
running and driving for the trip home to Los Angeles. At least there was a
50-percent victory. Watch as the guys revamp the Jimmy inline six, panic
over a wrecked master cylinder, sweat their cajones off for four days, and
explore one of the greatest old-car stashes ever!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
