Toronto, ON: The 2017 Toronto Classic Car Auction rolled in to the city once again.

With nearly 400 entries and thousands in attendance, this is the largest classic car auction in Toronto.

Spanning 3 days (Oct 13-15) the International Centre was filled with the sounds of, lumpy idles, rumbling exhausts and the auctioneer rhythmically chanting—selling car after car.

Along with all the vehicle entries, there were some unique memorabilia and collectibles like a framed “Tug of War” LP signed by Paul McCartney and a vintage NASCAR poster signed by none other that Richard Petty. And every season the auction seems to top itself with exceedingly rare vehicles that wouldn’t be out of place in a museum.

1957 Corvette Really Found in a Barn!

  1957 Corvette Really Found in a Barn! “She opened up the barn doors and it was laying there.” The old Vette looked ridiculous in Matt's mind. That was his impression of the scene, set inside a pole barn on a farm outside the small town of Glen Campbell, Pennsylvania.

Case in point, the star of the show was a 1970 Plymouth Superbird—a car that really needs no introduction.

Based on the popular Plymouth Road Runner the Superbird was designed specifically to race in Nascar, and was one of the first American cars tested in a wind tunnel. The polarizing but slippery nosecone added about 19 inches to the front of the car and the comically tall spoiler was designed to add as much downforce as possible.

It was successful as a NASCAR racer, winning eight races, in no small part due to the skill of Richard Petty. Unfortunately for the Superbird aerodynamic cars were banned in 1971, as they were getting “too fast”, and were quickly approaching the safety limits of the tires at the time.

The Toronto Fall Classic Car Auction Mississauga, ON. October 12 - October 14, 2018.

Finished in Mandarin Red with Sienna trim and a high output motor makes this a very special and ultra -collectable Torana. Our February Classic Car Auction drew huge crowds and media attention (both Channel Nine and Channel 7 television attended the event) as more rare beauties went under

As fast as they were on the ovals, Superbirds with the pointy nose, roadrunner graphics and the mile high spoiler didn’t jive well with the more conservative customer of the era and were slow to move on dealer lots. In fear of not being able to sell them some dealers started to convert them back to plain ol’ Roadrunners.

Exact production numbers are fuzzy, but the general consensus is around 1920 were built, with 135 of them produced with the 426, and only 77 of those being equipped with the automatic transmission—making this particular bird a coveted one indeed.

How coveted?

This meticulously restored and period correct example dropped the hammer at an astonishing $423,500.

That’s a lot of cake, but there were other pristine classics that sold for the price of new ultra luxury and exotic cars.

Classics like the 1971 Plymouth Barracuda with a 440 six barrel and auto trans sold for $175,000. That’s Audi R8 and 911 Turbo money, but drive a ‘Cuda and an R8 side by side on public roads and my money is on the Plymouth to turn more heads and receive the all important thumbs up’s of approval.

Classic cars are just that much more emotional, and invoke feelings of joy in those young and old. New cars seem a bit plain sitting along side the brightly coloured and chromed cars of decades past.

The C2 ‘vette was well represented, and my favourite car of the show was a 1963 split-window coupe in a gorgeous Riverside Red on Red interior that sold for $85,000 a relative bargain considering the rarity of the spilt-windows.

This auction is not all classics either and there were lots of late model vehicles, many in great condition, that make this a good place for someone looking for a used car.

Buyers can take their time as many cars remained unsold and could likely be had for a bargain.

The two companies would team up for development of the1950 Plymouth XX-500, eventually followed by a handful of successful concept and production vehicles in the years that followed. This model, a handsome 1953 Chrysler Ghia Special Coupe, was one of the most unique.

MG’s and Triumphs from England, old 911’s and VW’s from Germany, school buses, custom trailers and bikes. Volunteers pushing the cars up and down the auction block, folks of all ages darting about trying to get the best view and snap off pictures on their smartphones.

The sheer variety of cars, automotive paraphernalia and about 100 years of history were fabulous to see.

This seemed more like a car show than an auction, and it was a brilliant place to be if you’re like me and just want to stare googly-eyed at some cool cars for a few hours.

It would be even cooler to take one of these classics home, but alas I lack the funds and garage space.

Maybe next year.

Subtly Spectacular 1963 Split-Window Corvette .
For its owner, this 1963 Corvette split-window was about turning dreams into reality by building an all-out, detail-oriented C2 restomod.How does the '63 you see here fit in? Glad you asked. In this Corvette's not-to-distant past, it was being sold with the claim that it was a real-deal, numbers-matching car, making it highly desirable if the claim were true. Of course, someone jumped on the Corvette and bought it. But, after examining the car they found it was nowhere near a numbers-matching Vette and decided their best course of action was to cut their losses, re-sell the Vette as a "project car" and find something else.
