Barrett-Jackson’s Northeast Auction Will Include Coveted Classic Muscle, Resto-Mods from the David Maxwell Collection
UNCASVILLE, CONN. – June 13, 2019 – Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, will auction eight vehicles – all at No Reserve – from the David Maxwell Collection during the 4th Annual Northeast Auction at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, June 26-29, 2019. The Maxwell Collection features a curated selection of classic and custom muscle from the 1960s and 1970s, including a race-ready 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 (Lot #689) and this 1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427/435 Convertible (Lot #676) powered by an original, matching-numbers 427/435hp V8 Tri-Power engine.
“We’re bringing the same level of energy and excitement from our Scottsdale and Palm Beach Auctions to Connecticut,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “In just the few years we’ve been coming to Connecticut, our Northeast Auction has become the premier collector car auction on the East Coast. This year will be no exception. From a world-class auction docket, like the ones offered from the Dave Maxwell Collection, to authentic automobilia pieces, this year’s Northeast Auction promises to deliver an unforgettable experience.”
David Maxwell is a successful businessman who started his collection with a 1968 Firebird, which is identical to the one he had as a young man. He has a taste for rare and unique muscle cars, including a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro COPO (Lot #675) that will cross the block on Saturday, June 29. One of only 1,015 COPO 9561s delivered to dealerships, this Camaro is powered by a 427ci/425 horsepower engine and comes with a COPO Connection Certificate of Authenticity.
Professionally built Resto-Mods are prominent in the Maxwell Collection, including a one-of-a kind 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Custom Coupe (Lot #693). Featuring a new 6.2-liter LS3 V8 crate engine mated to a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission, this fully loaded street machine also features carbon-fiber throughout and sits on Forgeline racing wheels wrapped in Nitto Invo tires.
“I’m at the time in my life where I still want to see the lines and beauty of the cars I grew up with, but enjoy the comforts and performance of a modern car,” said Maxwell. “The examples I’m bringing to the Northeast Auction are a perfect balance between modern technology and old-school muscle.”
Another Resto-Mod from the Maxwell Collection that will cross the block is an award-winning 1971 Plymouth ’Cuda Custom Coupe (Lot #685). Standing on staggered Billet Specialties forged aluminum wheels and powered by a Keith Black 426ci HEMI V8 engine, this ’Cuda won the American National Choice award at the Pigeon Forge 2016 Hot Rod Roundup. It also won First Place E-Body All Modified award at Tennessee’s 28th Annual Fun in the Sun All Mopar Car Show.
“We’re thrilled for the opportunity to auction a group of cars from the Maxwell Collection during this year’s Northeast Auction,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “David has a keen eye for high-quality collector vehicles, which is demonstrated by the eight vehicles he’s selling with us in Connecticut. The vehicles have been well-maintained under his ownership and will make an incredible addition to any collection.”
