Fans of the General Won’t Be Disappointed at Indianapolis Auction, May 17-21

Walworth, Wis. – April 21, 2016 – Fans of the General—General Motors that is—will not be disappointed by the dizzying array of GM muscle available for bid at Dana Mecum’s 29th annual Original Spring Classic. The auction will feature at least 41 Chevrolet Chevelles, 26 Pontiac GTOs, 13 Oldsmobile 442s, 8 Buick GSs as well as a huge number of Chevrolet’s sportiest models with 56 Camaros and an amazing 94 Corvettes. Consignments continue to pour in, so these numbers will only get larger. These and other GM muscle cars are among the more than 2,000 vehicles to be showcased at the auction, which takes place May 17-21 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis.

Heading up the General Motors contingent is a stunning and rare Fathom Green-over-Dark Green 1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88 convertible (Lot S149) and a truly special Firemist Gold 1962 Corvette Styling Car (Lot S170.1). The Bowtie is well represented across the auction with two Yenko Camaros (Lot S154 and Lot S200) and a highly desirable 1970 Chevrolet COPO Chevelle LS6 (Lot S147) marking a few of the unique Chevrolet offerings.

Fans of other GM brands will be pleased as well. Oldsmobile muscle-car enthusiasts will rejoice at a superb Sherwood Green 1970 442 W-30 (Lot F204); followers of the ‘goat’ will see their pulses rise with a 1971 Pontiac GTO Judge convertible (Lot S179), and Buick motorheads will be satisfied with a trifecta of muscle-car magic from the Mike Guarise Collection of GS Stage 1 convertibles (Lots F146, F147 and F148). It’s hard to imagine any GM fan wanting for more.
