SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Jan. 19, 2021 – Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, is offering 24 collectible, classic Chevrolets from the Raser Collection, all at No Reserve, during the March 2021 Scottsdale Auction at WestWorld of Scottsdale. The Raser Collection includes some of the world’s most coveted original and restored classic Chevrolets spanning nearly two decades, beginning with a 1952 3100 pickup (preview) to three 1970 Chevelle LS6s, long considered one of the pinnacle performance cars of the American muscle car era.
“We are honored that so many collectors turn to Barrett-Jackson when it’s time to sell their collections,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “It’s rare to have a collection of this quality and scale that focuses on a single automaker. The Chevrolets represented in this collection range from survivors to vehicles that were meticulously restored to concours-level. We are looking forward to presenting the Raser Collection to our bidders in March so they have a chance to become part of each vehicle’s history.”

A 1957 Sedan Delivery Wagon (preview) in the collection is one of 92 built and is the product of a frame-off restoration. Finished in Onyx Black with flawless chrome, the sedan is powered by a 270-horsepower V8 with a set of dual four-barrel carburetors. The recipient of a no-expense-spared restoration, a 1957 Nomad Wagon (preview) earned a perfect score of 1,000 at the Eklers Chevy Classic Club International Convention. Well-optioned from the factory, it comes with the upgraded Power Pack V8 and fabled Powerglide automatic transmission. Featuring all the original factory drivetrain components, a two-owner 1955 Bel Air convertible (preview) offers the deluxe chrome package and a rare rear-bumper deluxe Continental kit.
“The Raser Collection gives bidders the chance to own the classic Chevrolet of their dreams,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “These well-preserved and carefully restored vehicles provide a special example of Chevrolet’s dominance in design and engineering. Any one of these collectible Chevrolets will make an incredible addition to a collection.”
The collection features an impressive offering of Chevelles – considered one of the pinnacle performance cars of the muscle car era – including three LS6s and an L78. One such example is an original 1970 Chevelle LS6 (preview) that was the recipient of a two-plus-year restoration.
