Barrett-Jackson creates ultimate Mopar Mecca at Scottsdale auction

(November 30, 2017) SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Barrett-Jackson’s 47th Annual Scottsdale Auction will be the stage for some of the world’s most incredible Mopars, including the last known HEMI ’Cuda. The nine-day auction will be held Jan. 13-21.

“We’re kicking off 2018 in a major way with our Scottsdale Auction docket,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson.

“Our guests will have the chance to take home some of the most coveted Mopars on the planet. These cars were born from a passion for performance and built to command respect, on the road and on the track. From the incredibly rare last known HEMI ’Cuda built in the ’70s to original and restored versions of the Road Runner, Challenger and Super Bee, our Scottsdale Auction will be a dream for Mopar and American muscle car enthusiasts.”

1971 Plymouth HEMI Cuda

A Plymouth HEMI ’Cuda heading to Scottsdale is the last known of its kind built and is one of 59 built in 1971. It underwent a total rotisserie restoration and has only 23,772 original miles. Also set to cross the block is a rare 1970 Plymouth Superbird that is one of only 308 Superbirds produced with a 440ci 6-Barrel engine and 4-speed manual transmission.

For Dodge enthusiasts, a 1970 Charger 500 Custom Coupe, finished in Sublime Green with white interior, features a 528ci EFI HEMI engine and TorqueFlite 727 automatic transmission.

“For many, the Mopars of the ’60s and ’70s represent the golden era of muscle car performance,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “They were bred to be powerful and fast on the track, and led to an exciting new world of aftermarket performance parts that continues to thrive today. The Mopars we’ve consigned for Scottsdale will make an incredible addition for any muscle car or high-performance enthusiast.”
