Popular collector car auction Mecum is set to make it’s return to Houston and the NRG Center at the end of March and this time The Triple J Ranch Auto Collection is set to headline at No Reserve.
With nearly 180 of the 1,000 vehicles estimated to cross the block, The Triple J Ranch Auto Collection will bring an eclectic mix of American classics, Corvettes, muscle cars, trucks, customs, motorcycles and movie cars.
Headlining the auction from The Triple J Collection, is a pair of 1969 Pontiacs. The first, a 1969 Pontiac Trans Am (Lot S48) with a 400 CI V-8 engine with Ram Air and automatic transmission. The second is a 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge (Lot S56) with a matching 400 CI Ram Air V-8 engine and a 4-speed manual transmission. Also headlining the Houston lineup is a trio of Ford Mustangs. In this trio is a meticulously restored 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback (lot S122) with a 427/780 HP crate engine and a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission, a 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Fastback (Lot S58) with a 302/290 HP V-8 engine and a 4-speed manual transmission from Triple J, and a 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Fastback (Lot F103) with a 351 CI engine and a 4-speed manual transmission.
When they say that Triple J has an eclectic mix and something for everyone, they mean it. Amongst this group of off the wall and unique autos, are a 1988 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS (Lot F22.1) with just 13,810 miles and a 5.0L V-8 engine, a 4-speed 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe (Lot S54) with a 427/435 HP engine, a 2006 Ford Mustang Saleen S281 Convertible (Lot S20) which is No. 6 of the 155 produced and a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 (Lot S36), one of 214 in black that shows a mere 649 miles.
From the replica movie assemblage, we will see a 2015 golf cart (Lot F3.1) built to replicate the Flintmobile from The Flintstones, a 1967 Ford Econoline Mystery Machine Replica Van (Lot F5) finished to look like the Mystery Machine with the green and blue livery and a 1959 Cadillac Ghostbusters ECTO 1 Replica (Lot F6.1). Complete with proton packs, traps and particle throwers in the cargo compartment, whoever goes home with it definitely won’t be afraid of no ghosts.
Triple J will feature some prewar classics including a 1916 Buick D-55 Touring (Lot T-9), a 1924 Ford Model T Coupe (Lot T4.1) and a 1928 Ford Model A Roadster (Lot T6) among others.
