While futuristic cars are quickly becoming part of daily life– consider the new all electric and self-driving vehicles—the past is still with us. Just check out the classics coming up for sale at McCormick’s Palm Springs Collector Car Auction on Feb. 21-23.
We still don’t have flying cars described in science fiction, but you can find a sporty 1937 Packard 115C roadster convertible featured in the upcoming auction. Fully restored, it comes with a black leather interior and matching rear rumble seat.
Not quite so old, a 1965 Shelby Cobra is the real deal– an authentic Continuation Cobra CSX 6024 with original documentation signed by Carroll Shelby, the American automotive designer and racecar driver. It has 6,262 miles on the odometer.
Also crossing the block, a restored 1967 Chevrolet Corvette convertible featuring an upgraded 502 c.i. crate motor, Tremec 5-speed transmission and adjustable mono-leaf carbon fiber rear suspension. In addition, the ‘Vette benefits from a fresh repaint, new convertible top and comes with a binder full of photos and receipts of the rebuild process.
Nearly 600 cars, trucks and motorcycles will be on display on a six-acre site beside the Palm Springs Convention center near downtown on the weekend of February 21, 22 and 23. The event is free and open to the public on Friday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and $25 for a weekend pass.
