The spring GAA Classic Cars auction featuring 550 cars was held at “The Palace” in Greensboro April 25-27.  Highlights of the auction included a special collection of Chevy drop tops, several high-end customs, ‘50s era boulevard cruisers, and highly-coveted muscle cars.  Here’s a look at the three-day auction, starting with the Top 10 Sales.

Chevy Drop Tops

Although the body styles of late ‘50s and early ‘60s Chevrolets are well known, it is interesting to see the designs in similar colors side by side. The group of convertibles that crossed the auction block chronicled the evolution of tail fins and body lines through the time periods when each year offered a new look.

High-End Customs

High-end customs, such as the top sale at this sale, a 1967 Shelby GT500E, drew several of the highest bids at the auction. This is a tribute build of “Eleanor,” a car made famous in the movie, Gone in 60 Seconds.

‘50s Era Boulevard Cruisers

Any one of the cars in this group would make a great Boulevard Cruiser, but three are on our list. The ’57 T-Bird in iconic color Dusk Rose is the definition of a cool classic car. Meanwhile, the ’58 Cadillac Coupe DeVille in Maybelline Pink would make anyone driving an instant celebrity. But if you wanted to arrive in style and be able to outrun the competition, the 1956 Continental Mark II is the one that packs a special punch. The original owner of this car had the dealer install a McCulloch Supercharger which boosts power to 385 HP.

Highly-Coveted Muscle Cars

The auction also offered a full range of muscle cars representing Chevy, Ford, and Mopar. Any one of these would be a great addition to a collection.
