Collector Chevelles at Auction in New Orleans

Since I can’t get to any classic car shows at this time of the year, the next best thing is trawling the online catalogs of the various collector car auction houses. Always lots of great photos and cool cars. Vicari Auction will be selling cars from the Brent Tauth Chevelle Collection at tomorrow’s New Orleans Classic Auto Festival.

What’s up for grabs? The feature car is a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 LS5 V8 automatic. This convertible still has its original engine, and comes in black with white racing stripes. Sweet. There’s also a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396, described as show ready. You can see it in the photo. I’d love to see it at a local show.

Another of the featured cars is a hardtop 1970 Chevelle Malibu survivor car. It’s only had two owners, and still has its original 300 HP V8 (naturally), as well as lots of toys and a special order factory SS dash. Not as in-your-face as the SS 396, but a very nice car indeed.
