LOT #734 – 1970 PLYMOUTH HEMI SUPERBIRD – NO RESERVE

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – June 10, 2022 – Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, will offer the Lindley Collection, including eight highly desirable and well-preserved American cars all with No Reserve during this year’s Las Vegas Auction, June 30-July 2. Headlining this superb collection is a pair of iconic Mopar muscle cars – a rare 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.”

LOT #734.1 – 1970 PLYMOUTH HEMI ‘CUDA – NO RESERVE

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. This Superbird features its original, matching-numbers 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.

Also from the Chrysler family of collector cars offered in the Lindley Collection is a 1961 Chrysler 300G convertible (Lot #771) and a 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A (Lot #771.1). Dubbed “America’s Grand Touring Automobile,” the 300G is powered by its 413/375hp V8 engine and is loaded with power features such as power steering, power top, power windows and amenities including a console tachometer. Documented by the 300 Registry, it is one of only 337 built and one of only 124 known to exist today.

Powered by its matching-numbers 6-barrel 340/390hp V8 engine and 4-speed close-ratio manual transmission, the 1970 Challenger T/A was part of a single production year for the Trans Am model to meet homologation requirements. Differing from the regular Challenger in many ways, the T/A’s hood was made of lightweight fiberglass and featured a functioning hood scoop. Also, unlike the regular Challenger, this model had front “eyebrow” spoilers and a rear “duck tail,” and the exhaust exited the sides near the back wheels.

“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.”

LOT #770.1 – 1970 FORD MUSTANG MACH 1 428 SCJ FASTBACK

Additional Mopars offered from the collection include a 1970 ’Cuda Convertible (Lot #772) and a 1969 Barracuda Formula S Convertible (Lot #460). Also finished in its original High Impact paint color, Lot #772 dons the Lemon Twist Yellow. Professionally restored, this 1970 ’Cuda convertible’s power comes from a 383 Commando V8 engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission and the exterior sports a power black top, color-keyed urethane front bumper and upgraded Shaker hood. The matching-numbers ’69 Barracuda Formula S convertible underwent a comprehensive restoration and is powered by its 340ci V8 engine backed by a 4-speed manual transmission.

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. It also features the original Shaker hood scoop, which was included on only 51 of the 1970 model year builds and is powered by its original matching-numbers Boss 302ci V8 engine mated to its factory-optioned original close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission with a Hurst shifter. 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. It features the original Window Sticker as well as the factory-installed white hood stripe, and the consignor states it has only 100 miles since the

Here comes trouble: A Triumph TR6 with a Matchless frame

custom triumph tr6 matchless frame 625x417 1

Kids are impressionable, especially when motorcycles are involved. That magical combination of sound, smell and danger has a way of imprinting itself on young minds. But Kyle Harvey didn’t just dream of bikes as a child—he practically grew up with them.

Kyle’s trade is tool and die making, but his passion is building bikes. His father, Garth Harvey, got Kyle and his brother into bikes at a young age; as soon as they could start their old man’s vintage motorcycles, they were riding them. Living in Edenvale in South Africa’s Gauteng province, the boys also had direct access to the local Classic Motorcycle Club.

 

The folks at the CMC made quite an impression on young Kyle—and taught him everything he knows about vintage bikes. After helping numerous friends work on their bikes, he went on to open his own shop, named simply ‘The Workshop.’ Kyle has been building and restoring classic motorcycles for over a decade now.

This cheeky bobber is his latest build, and it’s immensely fascinating. The engine’s from a Triumph TR6 Trophy, the frame is from a Matchless, and the quirky handmade details on it are endless.

The Swan Song of the V12

Published

on

The V12 engine holds a special place in the heart of many automotive and motorsports fans. For some, it’s the sound of Formula 1 through the years, especially during the 1990s. For others, it’s engines like the 6.1 L BMW S70/2 from the McLaren F1 or the 3.9L Lamborghini V12 that powered all their cars from the Miura through to the Diablo. No matter where it lies in your heart, it is the “proper” configuration for many: 6 cylinders per bank, put into a V, and firing in an odd sequence to give it that special roar under power.

Yet, as concerns over fuel efficiency, qualms about environmental impact, and high-powered turbocharged V8 or V6 engines are the norm now, the V12 is slowly, but surely, being put to rest. In fact, the only place that V12s are still hanging on by the last threads of their engine mounting bolts are in supercars, hypercars, and a few ultra-luxury cars. Even then, many exotic brands have announced that their next cars will either be V10s or turbo V8s and V6s.

Since it appears that the swan song of the V12 is reaching a crescendo, we thought it only appropriate to celebrate the few remaining cars out there that carry them. It may be the last time we see some of these brands, many of which are known for their V12s.

The writing is on the wall for the prancing horse, as the new Ferrari 296 GTB is showing the direction that Maranello is headed. Yet, unless you were invited to snag one of the limited-edition Monza SP1 or SP2 cars, there is still one car you can buy from the legendary marque that has all 12 cylinders fully intact.

The 6.5L F140 GA 65-degree V12 in the front of the 812 is the last road-going version of the V12 that debuted in the Ferrari Enzo. Producing a monstrous 789 HP and 530 lbs-ft of torque, it is no slouch either, as when the 812 Superfast debuted, it was the most powerful naturally aspirated production car engine ever made.

It has the typical low-rev Ferrari roar that rises into a howl as the car revs up to nearly 9,000 RPM, and will catapult the 3,845 (1,744 kg) car to 60 MPH in 2.9 seconds. As far as a curtain call is concerned, that’s a great way to bow out and focus on hybrids and turbocharged engines.

Mercedes-Benz used to be at the very top of the V12 pecking order when it came to luxury performance cars. Such classics as the S 65 AMG from the mid-2000s and the 500 TE AMG W123 Touring from the very end of the 1970s came with big V12s that sound astounding, but the biggest and baddest of the Mercedes V12s left on in a production car is the M279 E60 LA that hauled the S65 AMGs of 2014.

Road Tested: Gear from Shoei, Akin Moto and Rev’It!

Published

on

In our continuing quest to source motorcycle gear that combines safety and style, we bring you our thoughts on Shoei’s new ECE 22.06-approved NXR2 helmet. Plus a stealthy riding parka from Akin Moto, and the perfect pair of urban riding gloves from Rev’It!.

Shoei NXR2 helmet It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Shoei’s helmets. Every Shoei I’ve owned has fit and felt right from the first wear, with no major deviations in their sizing or shape from model to model. So when I was looking for a do-it-all street helmet to replace my well-used Shoei RYD, the new NXR2 was a no-brainer… and it hasn’t disappointed.

I loved the RYD for its combination of neutral styling, comfort and ventilation. The NXR2 basically feels like a premium version of the RYD; it has the same clean aesthetic, but ramps up the performance. And it’s one of the few helmets that meet with Europe’s new, and more stringent, ECE 22.06 standard.
