All of the RRC cars are kept in indoor climate controlled storage with a private, full service shop on site to keep every car in top mechanical condition. Our consignor loves to drive his cars and is also a racer. Recently he decided to refocus his interest to late model factory drag cars. With that, he has entrusted SG Auction to offer cars from his collection, which are, in his opinion “too nice to drive!” There may be as many as 9 cars crossing the block from this amazing collection at the May 3-4 auction in Spring Grove so stay tuned and keep checking back!
Offering number 1 is a documented, numbers matching 1969.5 Plymouth Road Runner A-12! This legendary car is 1 of 209 RM23M9s produced. A true M-Code, A-12 car it is, again, fully documented and the only 1 of the 209 possessing its unique combination of factory option codes…1 of 1! The odometer is showing 20,703 miles, which are believed original to the car. The M-code option is a 440 engine.

This rare bird is still wearing all of its original sheet metal and was completely restored by Muscle Car Restorations in Chippewa Falls WI to exacting factory specifications, using original factory documentation. The car was repainted with the correct R4, Performance Red paint color. On the car, all of the factory option parts are original to the car. This car still holds the honor of being the only U.S. street legal production car built with a lift off hood and all documentation goes with the sale. Here is an amazing opportunity to own a 1 of 1 ultra rare Mopar!
Offering number 2 is a heavily documented, numbers matching 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. Yes, it is a real Z/28 as proven by the original dealer documents, which include: Original Dealer Order form, the original Dealer Invoice, Protect-O Plate and Warranty Booklet. The original owner set the car up for drag racing and did rebuild the engine accordingly. Then engine was rebuilt again in 2000s to freshen it up from years of sitting. Both engine rebuilds are well documented. The odometer is showing only 12,939 miles, which are believed actual. This Z/28 code engine package consists of the original 302, 290 factory rated horsepower engine block, the original Muncie M21 transmission and the original 12 Bolt positraction rear end with 4:10 gears. It is well documented the drivetrain is original to this car and the numbers match. If that is not enough, this car also has a complete owner history. All the sheet metal is original to the car. The car has a repaint in the correct and very rare, P-P code: Sea Frost Green, color it left the factory wearing back in the late 60s. That said, this Z/28 still qualifies as “unrestored” because the paint is the only thing to be redone on this car, the rest has not been touched and is original to the car. The interior is also original to the car and has not been changed, replaced, altered or restored since new. If you are a fan of original, low mile cars…or even if your just a fan of cars…this piece of muscle car history is a must see!

According to the original broadcast sheet, this car came with a 426 cubic inch Hemi…check…paired with a 4 speed manual transmission…check…moving the factory rated 425 horsepower to the rear wheels through a Sure Grip limited slip rear end with 3:54 gears…and check! Count it…the drivetrain is not only original to this car, it is also numbers matching! Two other highlights of this car, it came from the factory with power steering and power brakes. The car is wearing original sheet metal and the factory F8 code, Ivy green paint is original with the exception of the hood. Look closely in the photos and you will see the body and paint are without a doubt factory original. The interior is also original to the car and showing in very good condition. Aside from a small tear in the front driver side seat, it is hard to find anything out of place. An auxiliary oil pressure gage has been added in the interior to keep an eye on extremely valuable Hemi power plant under the hood. Details like the hoses and clamps in the engine compartment have been replaced with high quality modern reproductions that maintain the original look with out compromising reliability. The Carter 4 barrel carbs have been rebuilt and there has an electronic ignition upgrade in the distributor, further enhancing reliability. The rest is authentic and original. Lastly, the steel wheels are new reproductions of the originals and the Red Line tires are also new.

SG Auction is proud to offer this collection of 3 late 80s Dodge offerings, each in some way blessed by the hand of Carrol Shelby, all selling at No Reserve!
A surprisingly prolific partnership struck in the 1980s between Chrysler Corporation and Carroll Shelby may have given a number of forgettable Dodges a fighting chance to see their values actually rise. In the early 1980s, life came at Carrol Shelby at fast! Lee Iacocca, head of all things Mopar at the time, set up Shelby with the Chrysler Shelby Performance Center outside Los Angeles and gave him free reign across Mopar’s whole 80s lineup: the Omni, the Charger, the Daytona, the Lancer ES. Starting off simple, Shelby added graphics, bodywork, and suspension tweaks, but by 1985 he really began to tune things up, literally: turbocharging!
This 1989 Dodge CSX showing production #379 on the dash tag, is selling at No Reserve! The CSX, which is built on the Dodge Shadow platform, stood for Carrol Shelby, eXperimental. Production was limited to 500 vehicles and with the completion of these cars, Carroll Shelby’s direct involvement with Dodge was complete! 1989 marked two notable technological advances to this platform: the introduction of a Garrett variable-nozzle turbo (VNT) and the application of composite wheels. Designed by Shelby and produced by Motor Wheel Corporation, known as “Fiberrides” claiming to be lighter than contemporary wheels. The engine was Chrysler’s new intercooled Turbo IV equipped with a Getrag A555 5-speed transmission. The variable geometry turbo vanes were computer controlled and needed no wastegate. Instead, they adjusted the flow of exhaust gases to spool up instantly and provide strong power. Chrysler kept the horsepower rating at 175 hp, but upped the torque rating to 205 ft·lbs at an unheard of 2100 rpm. Full torque was available from this low rpm to well past redline. Turbo lag was eliminated, with full boost (15 psi spike) available at 2100 rpm. The intense powerband, coupled with the car’s low weight, made the CSX-VNT very fast on the street. Car and Driver magazine called it “a high-tech hot rod” and “a technological showcase” and were impressed with the engine’s flexibility and top-gear acceleration. A ground effects package produced by Kaminari Aerodynamics gave the CSX-VNT a ground hugging appearance. The suspension was also modified, as the alignment specs are radically different from the other Shelby Dodges. Drivers praised the quick yet neutral handling. Shelby chose Exotic Red, a mix of bright red and maroon, with gold wheels and trim to finish this car. The MSRP price in 1989 was $15,995.
This 1986 Daytona Turbo Z CS (Carroll Shelby) with T-roof option is being offered at No Reserve! There were several changes for the 1986 Daytona. The middle “Turbo” model was dropped, leaving only two models, the base and Turbo Z. A T-roof option package was added to the list, and around 5,984 Daytona owners chose this option. The biggest addition was the C/S (Carroll Shelby) suspension package, available only as an option on the Turbo Z. This consisted of 32 mm in the front and 28 mm in the rear, anti-sway bars, performance tuned struts, and 225/50VR15 Goodyear Eagle Gatorback tires. Some 7,704 owners added this handling package to their Daytonas, this one included! Total production this year was 44,366.
Selling at No Reserve as well, this 1986 Dodge Charger Shelby is 1 of a total 7,669 believed produced! In 1985, the MPFI/Turbocharged Turbo I engine was added for Dodge’s Shelby Charger. This engine produced 146 hp and was changed from its first appearance in the 1984 Dodge Daytona Turbo. A Garrett AiResearch T3 turbocharger and Chrysler/Bosch multiple-point fuel injection enabled the 2.2 L engine to produce the additional horsepower. Dodge Shelby Chargers were available in four different color combinations: Black w/silver skunk stripe (1985–87), Santa Fe Blue w/silver skunk stripe (1983–86), Silver w/Santa Fe Blue skunk stripe (1983–86), and the color combo this 1986 Dodge Charger is wearing, Garnett Red w/silver skunk stripe (1984–87).
