Ford and Shelby’s finest line up for Barrett-Jackson at Mohegan Sun


Some of the finest Ford and Shelby American muscle ever built will be offered at Barrett-Jackson later this month in the highly-anticipated Mohegan Sun sale.
"With all of the excitement building around it, the inaugural Northeast Auction will be a spectacular first year at Mohegan Sun," said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. "The docket is full of incredible vehicles and that certainly includes these exceptional Ford-powered machines."

Leading the selection is a matching-numbers 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 finished in Wimbledon White with Black Clarion vinyl. With just two owners from new, the car has been restored to the highest MCA concours standards and still retains its original factory Build Sheet, manuals, brochures, warranty card and owner data plate.

Then there’s an original, matching-numbers 1968 Shelby GT500 KR convertible finished in Highland Green. Rotisserie-restored to concours condition by marque specialists, the car boasts a Delux Marti Report along with an original dealer invoice.

"Original Ford Mustangs and Shelbys of the 1960s and early ‘70s are the epitome of desirable, classic American muscle," said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson.

"Our bidders seek them out and, in fact, a Boss 429 was our top seller at our last auction in Palm Beach. The ones featured in our inaugural Northeast docket will surely bring a lot of attention from the bidders in the arena."

The sale will also offer plenty of excitement for GM fans, with a bevy of Chevys ranging from vintage originals to custom creations.

They include an award-winning, fully-documented 1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Coupe, dressed in factory Cortez Silver with factory black leather interior and fresh from a frame-off restoration; a matching-numbers 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 RS Cross-Ram; and a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Custom Coupe, built as a full-on Pro-Touring creation.

"The selection of GM vehicles, especially the Corvettes, is always strong at a Barrett-Jackson auction,” added Jackson. “The L88 is one of the most impactful models from early GM history and to have one as documented as the one on our Northeast docket is an ultra-rare opportunity for our bidders."

Further highlights across the board include a 1969 Pontiac GTO Convertible, a 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Fastback, and a 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 428 CJ Fastback.

The Barratt-Jackson Mohegan Sun sale takes place on June 23-25.
