Historic Dodges to star at Scottsdale sale
Restored Charger Daytona, unrestored Challenger Hemi, custom truck and many more Dodges now feature in the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale line-up
A number of historic Dodge models are to be auctioned by Barrett-Jackson at the annual Scottsdale Auction, held between 13-21 January 2018.
A Dodge Charger Daytona built to homologate the Charger for NASCAR forms part of a consignment of Dodge models brought to Scottsdale by Barrett-Jackson. The car is one of just 503 built, and was shipped to its first owner in California in 1969.
A matching numbers car which still has its original automatic transmission, it was stripped and rebuilt in a full rotisserie restoration during 2012. It retains its original 440ci Magnum and double exhausts. This car features the Performance Axle Package, sculpted road wheels and red line tyres, which complement its original colour of Bright Red. It comes with a Thumbwheel solid state radio, as well as an in-dash tachometer and clock.
'The Dodge brand has been deeply rooted in American culture for more than a century and we continue to see that connection at our auctions,' said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson.
A 1971 Dodge Challenger Hemi will join the Daytona at Scottsdale. This is a rare opportunity to buy a four-speed manual example which has a fully documented history – and which remains unrestored. One of just 70 Hemi-engined Challengers to be built in 1971, it features a pistol grip gear selector, plus A34 Super Trak Pak braking system.
Unusually the first owner has deleted the longitudinal R/T stripes, but this works well with the original TX9 Black paint. Specialist Galen Govier of GTS has decoded the original factory build tag, and can confirm that the car remains in its original specification.
