Chevrolets to Bring History, Horsepower to Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Dec. 12, 2017 Barrett-Jackson is lining up an impressive docket of Chevrolets representing the history of the American automaker’s most celebrated and powerful cars for the 47th Annual Scottsdale Auction, January 13-21, 2018, at WestWorld of Scottsdale. Spanning the generations, the Scottsdale Chevrolet docket will include a highly coveted range of models, including Lot #1409, #59 of the 69 COPO 9560 high-performance 1969 Camaros and Lot #1291, Body #1 and VIN 002 of the ’57 Chevrolet 150 series sedan.

“Chevrolet is one of the most popular brands in American history,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Chevrolet took on the performance market in 1912 with its powerful Series C Classic Six model and the company has continued to build on that legacy with some of the most sought after namesakes on the market, like the Corvette and Camaro. Our 2018 Scottsdale docket will feature many of these models and is a fitting tribute to the incredible impact these cars have had on our country’s rich automotive heritage.”

Among the Chevrolets bringing their history and horsepower to the Scottsdale Auction is #59 of the 69 COPO 9560 high-performance Camaros (Lot #1409) built in 1969. Finished in Hugger Orange with an all-aluminum 427ci engine under the hood, this Camaro is the only ZL1 ordered with a NC8 chambered exhaust. Corvettes will also highlight the docket, including a rare ’65 Corvette Stingray Cutaway (Lot #1413), which was used as an auto show display to demonstrate all of the hidden mechanical components of the car. Also set to cross the block is an award-winning 1968 Corvette L88 (Lot #1418) finished in Le Mans Blue, powered by a factory L88 427/430hp engine.

“Chevrolet’s signature bowtie logo has come to represent some of the very best in performance and design,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “It’s incredibly rewarding to see the breadth and depth of our Chevy docket mount as we get closer to our Scottsdale Auction. From original survivors to those showcasing the latest in modern performance, there’s no doubt we’ll have the world’s best Chevy models for auction in January.”

The Scottsdale Auction docket will also feature these incredible Chevy vehicles:

  • Two stunning 1967 427/435 Corvettes – Lot #1317 benefitted from a complete frame-off restoration and Lot #1294 is finished in rare Lynndale Blue with teal vinyl trim
