A rare supercharged 1967 Shelby GT-350 and a pair of pristine Pontiac muscle cars are among the vehicles scheduled to be up for bid when Tom Mack Classics presents Auction @ AutoFair Friday and Saturday, Sept. 14-15, at Lowe's Motor Speedway.
The two-day auction is part of the Sept. 13-16 Food Lion AutoFair, the world's largest automotive extravaganza. The four-day event also includes a car show featuring makes and models from more than 50 clubs; more than 7,000 vendor spaces that offer a plethora of automotive parts and memorabilia; and a car corral that features over 1,500 vehicles available for sale or trade.
One auction car sure to attract interest from automotive collectors around the world is a 1967 Shelby GT-350 with a factory-installed supercharger. Reports indicate Shelby American shipped only 28 1967 models with the Paxton-supercharger option.
Other spotlight cars are an original 1967 Pontiac Firebird with factory air conditioning and a fully documented 1968 Pontiac GTO with just 13,000 miles on the odometer.
Also scheduled to cross the auction block are several vehicles from the private collection of Greenville, N.C., automobile dealer Brinkley Moore. After 30 years of collecting rare muscle cars, Corvettes and Thunderbirds, Moore plans to sell at least 13 of his prized automobiles because of storage considerations.
