Barrett-Jackson lets American muscle cars shine in the Mohegan Sun


Barrett-Jackson has added a selection of American muscle to the roster of its inaugural Mohegan Sun sale.
The auction will offer an eclectic mix of vintage, customs, supercars and late-model vehicles, with exceptional cars from both sides of the Atlantic.

"We’re set to make our debut Northeast Auction at Mohegan Sun one of the most exciting automotive experiences on the East Coast this year," said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. "From a robust docket of vehicles to new exhibitors and exciting activities, the Barrett-Jackson experience at Mohegan Sun will be one you won’t want to miss."

Amongst the sale’s most striking lots is a one-of-one 1967 Ford Mustang known as ‘Obsidian’. The custom features everything from a Tremec TKO 600 5-speed transmission and fuel-injected 392ci V8 with twin Rotex superchargers, to custom Recaro heated seats and handcrafted color-match dashboard and two-piece door panels.

Created by Matt Crouper of Autoworks International in El Cajon, California, the unique pony car was developed following an investment of more than $1.3 million into its research, development and build, and is described as "a true head-turner".

The 1970 Plymouth HEMI Superbird

Further notable highlights will include a highly rare, matching-numbers 1970 Plymouth HEMI Superbird, one of only 77 HEMI automatics ever built; an original, matching-numbers 1968 Shelby GT500 KR Convertible featuring the original, matching-numbers motor and transmission; and a concours-ready 1966 Porsche 911 finished in Irish Green and upholstered in tan leather with plaid seat inserts.

"Over the years Barrett-Jackson has become a household name among automotive enthusiasts and collector car fans alike," said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. "We’re creating an event for our fans in the Northeast that will allow them to fully experience the Barrett-Jackson lifestyle. I’m confident our Mohegan Sun auction will deliver on their expectations."

The Barrett-Jackson sale takes place at the Mohegan Sun Casino and Resort in Uncasville, Connecticut on June 23-25.
