Steve Davis’ Charity 1964 Ford Fairlane 500

 

This one-of-a-kind custom 1964 Fairlane 500 was born a rare K Code. It is currently modified with numerous one-of-a-kind custom components. Built by ROUSH Industries in Michigan and restored by the best technicians in the industry. This Fairlane was literally the poster child for the launch of the Sherwin-Williams, Planet Color, Barrett-Jackson Collector Color Series paints. This beauty is done in “Red Hot Chili Pepper” and debuted at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas 2009. It was unveiled at a huge media briefing at the Sherwin-Williams display by Steve Davis, Bobby Moody and NASCAR star Greg Biffel. The Fairlane then went on to be displayed at all of the Barrett-Jackson Events promoting the Barrett-Jackson Custom Color paints. Steve’s personal goal was to create a car that reflected “old school” horsepower and torque with state of the art technology and reliability. There was no expense spared on the build of this unique masterpiece. Powered by the famous ROUSH 427 IR V8 producing 522hp and 457ft/lb of torque going through a Tremec TKO 600 5-speed transmission with a McCloud dual disc clutch into a Moser/ROUSH 9″ custom rear end with a 3.70 gear ratio. The engine is fed through 8 stack throttle bodies and manifold, it has custom headers/side exhaust with an 8 quart “Road Race” front sump oil pan. It has “Red Hot Roush 427” custom valve covers, custom fender badges, custom Barrett-Jackson inserts in the body side moldings, air conditioning plus too much more to list here. The only miles since the completion of the restoration are the result of loading and unloading for display purposes. A once in a lifetime opportunity to own a real piece of Steve Davis, Sherwin Williams and Barrett-Jackson history with the benefit and knowledge of helping the men and women of our Armed Forces. **ALL PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT THE ARMED FORCES FOUNDATION** **SOLD AT APPROXIMATELY 7:00PM ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24TH**

Plymouth Barracuda

The Barracuda was a two door muscle car that was produced by Plymouth from 1964-1974. The first Barracuda was a fastback coupe that was based off the Plymouth Valiant and came out in 1964. The car’s powertrain was identical to an earlier car, the Plymouth Valiant. The standard engine had a piston displacement of 170 cu in and an output of 101 bhp. The Formula S was introduced n 1965 with a bigger engine, new suspension and bigger tires in an effort to compete with the Ford Mustang.

The second generation was radically redesigned and came in fastback, notch back and convertible variations. The second generation had a production run from 1967- 1969 and was really popular with muscle heads. The 1967 Barracuda had a larger wheelbase and was still based on the Valiant design. The second generation of Barracuda cars were the first cars to face U.S Federal safety standards but that did not stop Plymouth from increasing the engines horsepower, as muscle cars began to grab hold of the industry.

The last new design was introduced in 1970 and was the first to not feature the Valiant design. The original fastback design was removed and the car was only available in convertibles and coupes. The car shared the same platform as the new Dodge Challenger and had a slight decrease in performance from earlier years.
