SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#barrettjacksonBarrett-Jackson,
The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions®, has lined up an
incredible docket of rare, collectible customs and hot rods for the 46th
Annual Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction, to be held Jan. 14-22, 2017,
at the WestWorld of Scottsdale in Arizona. Among the featured customs to
cross the auction block in Scottsdale is Boyd Coddington’s “Alumatub,”
as well as “Brass Monkey,” a 1939 Chevrolet custom truck built by Eldred
Hotrod Shop.


“The customs and hot rods we have crossing the block in Scottsdale are
truly among the cream of the crop,” said Craig
Jackson
, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Many of the cars have
been given the highest honors in the industry and have graced the covers
of national publications. The craftsmanship behind these customs, like
‘Alumatub’ and ‘Brass Monkey,’ is simply unprecedented, and our 2017
Scottsdale docket will reflect some of the biggest stars among customs
and hot rods.”

Boyd Coddington’s “Alumatub” (Lot
#1434
) was built on the popular “American Hot Rod” TV series on the
Discovery Channel. Its hand formed all-aluminum body was built by Marcel
Delay on a specially constructed Coddington aluminum frame and chassis.
Under the hood is an aluminum 350ci Chevy engine with Barry Grant demon
three-deuce carburetion and a Powerglide transmission with a Mooneyes
electronic shifter.

“Brass Monkey” (Lot
#1329
) is a 1939 Chevrolet truck custom built as a personal vehicle
by Doug Eldred and completed in early 2016. The truck started with the
original cab and is now a full unibody construction that integrates a
custom-built chassis outfitted with the latest in componentry. The
small-block Chevy engine is connected to a GM 700R4 automatic overdrive
transmission that drives a 4:10-ratio rear end in a custom Currie
housing. Stopping power is provided by Johnson’s Hot Rod Shop Kinmont
brakes.

“The craftsmanship in our custom and hot rod consignments is simply
awe-inspiring,” said Steve
Davis
, president of Barrett-Jackson. “For many of these vehicles, no
expense was spared and no detail was left untouched. These customs are
truly works of rolling art and will make a wonderful addition to
someone’s collection in January.”

“Eye Candy” (Lot
#1358
) is a stunning one-of-a-kind 1958 Chevrolet Custom Convertible
restored by Patrick’s Classy Cars of Phoenix. It is powered by a
556-horsepower LSA supercharged engine and rides on 8-inch polished
Budnik Illusion wheels specifically designed for the handling and
performance of this chassis.

The “Blow Dart,” a 1968 Dodge Dart Resto-Mod (Lot
#1330
) is another highly acclaimed custom that will cross the block
in Scottsdale in 2017. Built specifically for the 2016 SEMA Show, and
not shown or displayed anywhere else, this Resto-Mod took over 2,000
hours to build and is equipped with a SCAT 493 forged stroker engine
complete with a Howard’s cam, as well as Trick Flow heads and intake.

The 1926 Ford Model T “Moonshiner” Custom (Lot
#527
) was built by hot rod legend Mickey Himsl in honor of his
original “Moonshiner” that was highly popular in the 1960s. Finished in
Skymist Blue, this custom hot rod took four years to build, was a
featured display at the 50th Anniversary of the Grand National Roadster
Show, and won 2015 Best in Class at the Grand National Roadster Show and
Sacramento Autorama.

Included in the custom and hot rod docket is a 1970 Dodge Charger Custom
Coupe (Lot
