The Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction will offer the Lindley Collection that includes eight well-preserved American cars with no reserve. The collection includes a 1970 Plymouth HEMI Superbird (Lot #734) and a matching-numbers 1970 Plymouth HEMI ’Cuda (Lot #734.1).
“Classic American vehicles from the golden era of muscle cars remain extremely popular among collectors,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “The Lindley Collection includes some incredible examples that Chrysler and Ford built during that period. As a collector of cars like these, I have a great appreciation for the vehicles offered in this collection and I know they will be some of the most popular among our bidders in Las Vegas.”
Finished in special High Impact EV2 TorRed, this 1970 Plymouth HEMI Superbird (Lot #734) is one of just 135 HEMIs produced and number 997 of the 1970 NASCAR wing car homologation program. It’s powered by its original 426ci HEMI V8 mated to a TorqueFlite 727 automatic transmission.
Highlighted by its matching-numbers body, engine and transmission, the 1970 Plymouth HEMI ’Cuda (Lot #734.1) is finished in its original High Impact FJ5 Limelight Green and features a Shaker hood with an added “Hockey Stick” stripe. Both of these exceptional vehicles include a Wise Vehicle Report and have been recorded in the MMC Detroit Global Vehicle Registry.
“The condition of the classic muscle cars in the Lindley Collection is truly remarkable,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “Not only do they reflect the dedication by American car builders to build a better car than the competition, these specific examples are also well-preserved and have been meticulously maintained. Taking any one of these home from our Las Vegas Auction would be a great way to celebrate our nation’s Independence Day.”
Ford models from the Lindley Collection include the 1970 Mustang Boss 302 (Lot #770) that received a professional restoration and is one of only 156 from the model year that is finished in its original Calypso Coral with black interior.
Also from Ford is the 1970 Grabber Orange Mustang Mach 1 (Lot #770.1). It underwent a frame-off restoration and features its original matching-numbers 428 Cobra Jet engine and 4-speed manual transmission.
Barrett-Jackson is offering the Lindley Collection and their entire docket with No Reserve at the 2022 Las Vegas Auction, held June 30 to July 2 in the West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
