If you want to take a look at the inventory, use the link attached, Read down the article until you see the word "auction" highlighted in blue, touch that and be amazed. What a collection of great Chevys, particularly HP/rare Camaros. Wish I could have seen this before it hit the auction -

Or use the Mecum link. This thing is coming up quick -

There's 13 first gens. Most don't list VIN's or show trim tags. Shiny cars, but do your due diligence. May be hard to get near the cars to inspect.

124379N644383 - COPO that used to have no drivetrain.
124379N672561 - reputed COPO with complete set of repro docs.
68 RS/SS L34 - 749 interior not available in a convertible.
69 RS/SS L78 10-B -  729 interior not available in a convertible. Al head, but not mentioned.
124378L339792 - car was V-V, now A-A.

I'm curious about the 69 black L78 ragtop......  though doubtful....

Every time I go down to Florida to visit family I head over to check out the latest additions to his collection and it's a GM lovers dream! I'm sad to hear the news!

Makes me wonder about the validity of the '67 Z. Several incorrect pieces on the car, not like I could afford it anyway, but it would be my target.

You have to admit, it's a bunch of good looking Chevrolades. I wouldn't kick them out of my garage - even if I had a 6000 square foot ex-Walmart building handy. I applaud the guy for his taste and eyes - and money.

Regards,
Steve

Not sure I buy the unrestored condition on the 67 Z. Maybe not a total restoration, but definitely has had work done under the hood. Hard to say without seeing the car in person, but the paint looks great if it's original.

Some of the cars appear to be (made) cars. Correct me if I am wrong but I don,t think they made 67 SS El Caminos, even though I would like to have one.
