1964 Ford Failrlane 500

This one-of-a-kind custom 1964 Fairlane 500 was born a rare K Code. It is currently modified with numerous one-of-a-kind custom components. Built by ROUSH Industries in Michigan and restored by the best technicians in the industry. This Fairlane was literally the poster child for the launch of the Sherwin-Williams, Planet Color, Barrett-Jackson Collector Color Series paints. This beauty is done in "Red Hot Chili Pepper" and debuted at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas 2009.

It was unveiled at a huge media briefing at the Sherwin-Williams display by Steve Davis, Bobby Moody and NASCAR star Greg Biffel. The Fairlane then went on to be displayed at all of the Barrett-Jackson Events promoting the Barrett-Jackson Custom Color paints. Steve's personal goal was to create a car that reflected "old school" horsepower and torque with state of the art technology and reliability. There was no expense spared on the build of this unique masterpiece. Powered by the famous ROUSH 427 IR V8 producing 522hp and 457ft/lb of torque going through a Tremec TKO 600 5-speed transmission with a McCloud dual disc clutch into a Moser/ROUSH 9" custom rear end with a 3.70 gear ratio. The engine is fed through 8 stack throttle bodies and manifold, it has custom headers/side exhaust with an 8 quart "Road Race" front sump oil pan. It has "Red Hot Roush 427" custom valve covers, custom fender badges, custom Barrett-Jackson inserts in the body side moldings, air conditioning plus too much more to list here. The only miles since the completion of the restoration are the result of loading and unloading for display purposes.

This Shelby GT500 Durability Car is a rare piece of muscle car history, and is the car that the SVT team and Carroll Shelby signed off at the racetrack. It is the genesis and inspiration for today's Shelby GT500 production Mustangs that are available at Ford dealerships nationwide.

And you made it that and more," said Carroll Shelby. This Shelby GT500 Durability Car was designed and engineered by the Ford SVT team working together with Carroll Shelby. Ford SVT assembled much of this GT500 Durability by hand and then tested it on Sebring International Raceway, the High-speed Oval track at the Arizona Proving Ground, as well as the Route 66 road course, among others. It was personally piloted by Carroll Shelby during many hours of its testing. As a result of its testing, this Durability Car allowed the production GT500 to feature a 5.8L supercharged aluminum-block V8 engine cranks out 650hp and 600 lb/ft of torque, making it one of the most powerful cars ever built. Handling is world-class with a TORSEN limited-slip differential, carbon fiber one-piece drive shaft, front and rear Bilstein adjustable dampers, performance-tuned front and rear springs and front and rear stabilizer bars.

9. 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback $275,000

1967 Mustang Fastback

Another truly impressive Resto-Mod from the Jimmy Richardson Collection and Big Pop's Garage. Impressed with the styling of the Eleanor Mustang Jimmy wanted something different an over-the-top. His thought, what if all of the body modifications were steel and made to be an integral part of the body. Working with two shops Jimmy was able to turn this thought into reality. Hence the BAD ASS Mustang was born. This car is truly spectacular. It is unique in its construction and styling and is a one-of-a-kind Mustang. Not only different by the drivetrain but also dimensionally and geometrically different. The front fenders and hood have been extended. The workmanship leaves nothing to be desired and is truly first class. With over 3,000 man hours spent during the build process, the investment of time shows and shows well. The engine is a Shelby aluminum block displacing 428cid with Edelbrock aluminum Stage 3 heads and topped off with a Vortech supercharger built by Keith Craft. The engine peaks at 763hp and 747lb/ft of torque. Other top name products include Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes, Schott custom aluminum 3-piece wheels and every emblem is custom made.
