1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88 4-speed — 2,500 original miles

This low-mileage, unrestored and very original 4-speed example of the near-mythical L88 stands as one of just 116 built for ’69 and one of 10 with the 4.56:1 rear end. Carrying full documented provenance from new, it has been inducted into the Corvette Hall of Fame and has won NCRS Top Flight and Bloomington Gold certification. Documentation includes tank sticker on the original fuel tank.

1970 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 convertible

This 4-speed W-30 1970 Oldsmobile 442 convertible is said to be one of just 96 produced in all. Fully known history from new includes long-term storage from 1976 to 2004. In addition to stunning originality, it is complete with W-30 designation on its factory broadcast card. Featured on the cover of the November 2015 edition of Muscle Car Review, this Matador Red machine has covered fewer than 40,000 miles.

1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429

KK 2029 is one of only 857 Boss 429s produced in 1969 and benefits from a freshly completed professional rotisserie restoration. Believed a three-owner car with approximately 35,000 miles from new, it is complete with three original build sheets, a Deluxe Marti Report, window sticker, and restoration receipts. Details include factory chalk markings. The legendary Boss 429 motor was recently dyno-tested at 471.7 hp. Well-equipped, freshly restored, and highly documented.

1970 Plymouth Hemi ‘ Cuda – no reserve

One of 284, this 4-speed 1970 Hemi ‘Cuda is a matching-numbers example with a photo-documented restoration and retains the all-important fender tag. Sold new in Regina, Saskatchewan and insured there throughout its existence, it was ordered and built for maximum performance with a number of delete options, including steel wheels, a “slick” painted roof, stripe and floor console delete, manual drum brakes and steering, and a fixed driver’s-side mirror. Finished in FC7 Purple.

1969 Chevrolet Camaro “Double COPO”

Featuring the near-mythical COPO 9561 option, including the L72 427 engine, ZL2 special ducted hood, heavy-duty cooling, and F41 high-performance suspension, this show-quality “Double COPO” also includes the COPO 9737 Sports Car Conversion package with a 140-mph speedometer, 13/16-inch front sway bar and 15-inch wheel/tire combo. Factory-finished in Garnet Red, this factory 4-speed example was sold new via Ed Stinn Chevrolet in Cleveland, Ohio. The car retains almost all of its original parts.

1968 Dodge Hemi Charger R/T — “one of one,” no reserve

Already rare as one of the few Hemi Chargers built for 1968 with a 4-speed manual transmission, this is said to be the sole 4-speed car with code LL1 paint. An extremely desirable California black-plate car, it is a rare vinyl roof/rear stripe/console delete car with a documented 1,200-hour-plus restoration. Retaining matching numbers, all-important fender tag, and original pink slip.
