As hardcore bowtie fans, we’re eager to watch auctions where classic and collectable Chevys are at the forefront. If we’ve got your attention, you’re in luck. Coming to the Anaheim Convention Center in November 21-23, 2013, is the second annual Anaheim, California, Mecum Auctions. At the event, 750 classic and collectable vehicles are scheduled to take to the block. With the list of cars includes two pristine Chevys we thought you should know about. While we’ve only featured two of the most standout examples of what will cross the auction block down below, there will be a plethora of other GM classics available as well.
We couldn’t help but feature this low-mileage 1969 Chevrolet COPO Camaro. This classic first-gen F-Body is 100% all-original. From the engine, transmission, rearend, and Houndstooth interior – we’re super impressed by the COPO’s museum quality. The body sheet metal and Super Sport wheels are exactly as they came from the showroom floor at the dealership in 1969.
With only 21,000 original miles, there’s no doubt this gem will fetch someone’s attention. The American muscle car comes with verification by COPO Connection as being legitimate. It also has a Spinner Concourse Gold Award of Excellence which means it reached 955 out of 1,000 points from the Camaro club. A factory window sticker helps show it’s an early production COPO. What a score for any diehard Camaro lover who has the start of a collection or needs one more piece to round it out.
The other car that stood out to us was a 1955 Chevrolet Nomad Resto-Mod. Having gone through a frame-off restoration, the Nomad comes with a Teal Blue paintjob accented by a White roof. The Camel leather interior gives the driver and passengers a comfy ride, while Dolphin Digital custom gauges inform the driver of speed, mileage, and other essentials from a glance. A tilt steering wheel was installed for a modern twist along with Vintage Air conditioning (which we totally approve of). Power windows and locks, added with an AM/FM Sirius satellite radio equipped with Bluetooth really gives the car that added feel of being in the 21st century. Powering this Chevrolet is an all-aluminum, late-model 5.7L LS1 backed by a 4-speed automatic. Getting it through the turns is a Corvette power rack and pinion steering. This may not be an all-original car, but for someone looking for a stylish cruiser, this car certainly meets the criteria.
What’s more, portions of this auction will be available via broadcast TV. The Discovery’s Velocity Network will air some of the auction November 21-23, 2013; and if you’re serious about watching the auction in its entirety, you can catch every minute on a live stream online HERE. Check back as we stay up-to-date with the price tags these two Chevys fetch. We’re convinced they’ll capture some big money.
