This collection from Virginia offers up a host of vehicles representative of the muscle-car era’s peak years, while also throwing in a couple extras to entice collectors of all types. Chevrolet powerhouses from this collection include four which received the now famed Yenko upgrades, while Plymouth is represented well with a ’70 Hemi Cuda and ’69 A12 Road Runner, both of which are unrestored. A 1969 Torino GT represents Ford in the collection and Plymouth makes a showing with a ’69 LeMans Convertible. For muscle-car enthusiasts, this collection offers up not only some of the raw horsepower that made the late ‘60s and early ‘70s an exciting time to be on the streets, but also a unique opportunity to get their hands on some outstanding examples from the muscle-car heyday.
