Barrett-Jackson’s 16th annual Palm Beach Auction will be muscle car heaven with a number of highly collectible, fully restored GM muscle cars crossing the block. It takes place April 12-15, 2018 at the South Florida Fairgrounds.
They include a rare ’69 Pontiac GTO Judge Ram Air IV at No Reserve. It’s one of only 549 Judges with the Ram Air IV engine option. A ’74 Pontiac Trans Am 455 Super Duty will also be offered at No Reserve. It’s one of only 943 built.
“The American muscle cars of the 1960s and 1970s are among the most iconic collector cars in the world,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “That generation ushered in a whole new level of innovation, performance and racing capabilities that broke new ground with design and technology. General Motors was one of the most prolific builders of these American muscle cars during this era, and some of those groundbreaking cars, many of which have been beautifully restored and well-preserved, will cross the block in Palm Beach and offer our bidders a chance to own an important part of our American culture.”
Other restored, rare GM muscle cars that will cross the block awith No Reserve include:
- A 1970 GTO Convertible that underwent a body-off restoration in 2016. It’s one of only 241 GTO convertibles from that year equipped with 455ci engine and 3-speed automatic transmission. It’s also one of the most well documented 442 convertibles in the country.
- A 1971 Oldsmobile 442 that’s been fully restored to exact factory specifications with great attention to detail.
- A Montero Red ’66 Pontiac GTO that recently underwent a nut-and-bolt restoration with all-original sheet metal.

- A 1966 A Milano Maroon ’66 Chevrolet Corvette 427/390 equipped with factory air conditioning, beautiful black vinyl interior, teakwood sport steering wheel and AM/FM radio with power antenna.
“What’s incredible about many of these GM muscle cars is how well they’ve been maintained,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “Also, the level of detail that’s been given to the ones that have been restored is something you have to see to believe. Not only are the cars an incredible part of our American identity, they are ready to roll off the auction block and on to the open highway.”barrett-jackson
