GAA Classic Cars Gears Up for November Auction

Over 750 classic cars are expected for auction at GAA Classic Cars’ auction in early November, with several collections taking center stage at the Automobile Palace in Greensboro, NC. 

This auction tends to present a number of muscle cars and classic American cars, along with a selection of sports cars and exotics. Here are a few to watch this year:

1979 Dodge Lil Red Express

Lot FR0134

When the muscle car party stopped, the legislation that stopped it took a while to catch up to trucks. Dodge capitalized on the oversight with the Lil Red Express, which was basically a muscle car in a truck package. This one is fully restored and is offered at no reserve.

1966 Chevrolet Corvette 427/390 Coupe

Lot ST0132

Big-block midyear Corvettes will always be in demand, and this one claims to have a no-hit body and 68,000 miles from new. It’s fitted with its original leather interior, a 4-speed and has its original numbers-matching engine. The paint is said to be original as well.

1969 Chevrolet K5 Blazer

Lot ST0081

Stock-style restorations seem to be pretty rare in an SUV market that’s still charged up on LS swaps and 35-inch tires. This Blazer is mostly stock throughout, minus some obvious add-ons such as a modern stereo and tires. But it’s still a small-block, still a 4-speed, and generally looks as it would have looked when these were new. It was completely restored in 2019.

1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible

Lot ST0083

There’s been movement in the Tri-Five market as of late, and ever since 2020, Restomods in general have been on a new tear in interest and value. So how about a clean, fresh-built LS7-powered ’57 on an Art Morrison chassis?

2006 Ford GT

Lot ST0072.4

This GT has all four options and just 90 miles from new. It’s one of 541 finished in Tungsten Gray Metallic that year. For many collectors, a proper Ford GT needs to have 8 cylinders, and that’s revived market interest in these domestic supercars.

The auction takes place November 2-4. Learn more here.
