Gavel poised for Vancouver Collector Car Show & Auction

In less than a month, seasoned classic car collectors and new hobbyists alike will have the perfect opportunity to browse millions of dollars worth of classic and custom-built cars and trucks at the PNE Fairgrounds.

The second annual Vancouver Collector Car Show & Auction, presented by the Dueck Auto Group, rolls into Vancouver on June 21 and 22.

The auction will see more than 175 amazing rides cross the block; so here’s a quick look at a half-dozen sure to get the paddles waving.

1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible

Famously nicknamed “The Hot One,” the 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air was notable for its Ferrari-inspired grille and powerful, but comfortable, ride. This stunning restomod preserves all the characteristics of the original car, but features an updated Chevrolet Performance 350 cubic inch crate motor with a reconditioned 4-speed transmission, as well as a new convertible top and refinished leather interior.

A rare 1951 Ford F3 will also be up for auction.

1951 Ford F3 Pickup

The F-Series was introduced in 1948 and was the first model to feature a custom truck platform, a departure from previous models that had been built upon a repurposed car chassis.

This extraordinary 1951 Ford F3 was restored from the ground up and features all original parts, except for an updated Ford C4 transmission and Dana 44 differential.
There is no reserve for this incredible classic truck at the auction.

1957 Pontiac Star Chief Convertible

When first released in 1954, the Star Chief was Pontiac’s premier model and was a favourite of movie stars and celebrities across North America. This 1957 convertible underwent a full frame-off restoration that has brought this car back to life in mint condition. Featuring a two-toned coral exterior, brand new convertible top, and fully refinished interior, this Star Chief would be equally at home in a collector showroom or cruising the open road.

1964 Lincoln Continental Custom

When it comes to cool, it’s hard to beat this 1964 Lincoln Continental Custom. Featuring a polished black exterior, elegant suicide doors, a Clarion HX-D3 sound system with four high-powered amps and a custom designed fibreglass sub-woofer enclosure, this vehicle will make you want to take the long road every time. Once the journey is over, passengers can even help themselves to a slide-out bar hidden within the spare wheel compartment.

1966 Cobra Recreation

The original Shelby Cobra is one of the most iconic vehicles ever produced and no expense was spared to make every detail of this high performance 1966 Cobra replica as close to the original as possible. Built in 2004, with a second major upgrade in 2009, this stunning replica head-turner boasts over 650 horsepower and already has a handful of show trophies to its name.

1960 Chevrolet Impala
The 1960 Chevrolet Impala is so big that one automotive journalist famously quipped that you
could land a small airplane on the hood. This stunning full frame-off restomod features the legendary “bubbletop” styling and a classic Chevrolet V8 engine with Muncie 4-speed transmission. The leather interior has been immaculately refinished and the interior also features a custom stereo system with two amps and two sub-woofers, and the car has been fitted with 18-inch American racing torque thrust wheels.
