American muscle hits BCA

Time 7:39 am, May 10, 2012

BCA is set to get pulses racing as it launches a special sale programme of classic American Muscle cars.

In partnership with the DARCARS Automotive Group of the USA, the monthly sale at BCA Nottingham will see some of the most iconic and desirable examples of US Muscle Cars from the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies go under the hammer.

Eight cars will feature in the initial sale which takes place as part of the Sports, prestige & executive auction at BCA Nottingham on Thursday June 21, with viewing from 9.00 am and the vehicles offered from 12.00 Noon.

All the cars in the programme have been fully restored and are presented to the highest standards with UK registration and 12 months MOT.  Comprehensive documentation will also be provided for each vehicle including, where available, details of restoration work undertaken.

The line-up for the June 21sale includes three Chevrolet Corvettes, two Pontiac GTOs, one Chevrolet Camaro, one Pontiac Firebird and a very rare Plymouth GTX, with all models dating from 1963 to 1970.

Further sales of 16 additional cars are scheduled for July 19 and 24 cars for August 16 and at least 24 cars monthly at each Top Car Auction in Nottingham thereafter.

DARCARS group spokesman Robert Ryan, said: ‘These sales will offer a rare opportunity for collectors and enthusiasts to purchase from a selection of beautifully restored classic American muscle cars at auction.  These cars have been hand-picked as some of the best available to the marketplace and come with comprehensive history packages, a 12-month MOT and UK registration.’

BCA’s spokesman Tim Naylor added: ‘The opening sale includes a selection of very desirable Americana and we expect this and the future sales to attract interest, not just from UK buyers, but from much further afield. There is a real following for the American muscle cars with many buyers seeing them as a real investment for the future.  It’s an exciting addition to our sale programme.’
