“Chevrolet has put more high-performance cars on the road than any other
American carmaker over the past 60 years,” said Craig
, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “The depth and breadth
of Chevrolet’s impact on car collecting has been amazing. For instance,
the small-block Chevy has become a mainstay of hot-rodding, custom car
building and has been part of almost every form of motorsports. The
bowtie is synonymous with Americana and high performance.”

The 1969 L88 Corvette (Lot
) is one of 216 total L88s ever built. This Corvette is
equipped with a 427/430 horsepower L88 engine with factory side pipes,
and the original red line tires that came on the car. With only 16,482
original miles, this car had a rotisserie restoration, has earned
numerous awards and was featured in the February 2015 issue of Vette

Another anticipated consignment is the 1960 Chevrolet Engineering
Research Vehicle (CERV) 1 (Lot
), which was developed between 1959 and 1960 by Zora
Arkus-Duntov. Considered one of the most significant pieces of American
automotive culture, CERV 1 was developed as a functional mid-engine,
open-wheel, single-seat prototype racing car. While this race vehicle
was only used for test laps during the 1960 U.S. Grand Prix, its main
purpose was to develop Corvette suspension and driveline components for
the production car. It stands as one of the experimental landmarks of GM

“I couldn’t be more excited about the docket of Chevrolets we have
consigned for our 2017 Scottsdale Auction,” said Steve
, president of Barrett-Jackson. “From the Corvette to the COPO
Camaro and tri-five Bel Airs, these vehicles represent strides in
engineering and advancements in technology that made a lasting impact on
the American car culture.”

The Scottsdale docket will feature a rare Daytona Yellow 1969 COPO
Camaro (Lot
). It’s powered by a date-code-correct L72 427 engine churning
out 425 horsepower that is connected to a Muncie 4-speed manual
transmission and rare CVE-code posi-traction rear end. The stunning car
underwent a full restoration in 2010 using a combination of refurbished
original, reproduction and NOS parts.

Other notable Chevrolets crossing the block in Scottsdale include a 1970
Nova Yenko Deuce (Lot
), which is one of 175 produced. Finished in a rare Citrus
Green, it comes factory-equipped with the COPO 9737 sports car
conversion package and is powered by 360 horsepower LT1 engine. The
Scottsdale docket will also include a 1956 Bel Air convertible (Lot
) that features a 205 horsepower Power Pack engine.

Two of the rarest small-block Corvettes ever built in sequential years
will be auctioned. The 1962 327/360 Heavy-Duty Brake “Fuelie” (Lot
) and 1963 Split-Window 327/360 “Fuelie” (Lot
) are both fuel-injected with heavy-duty brakes and suspension.
