Classic, Racing Mopars Headline Auction

by David Zatz on

A 1970 Dodge Hemi Challenger R/T is headlining the Auctions America Auburn auction and swap meet this weekend, but that’s not the only interesting Mopar up for grabs.  Indeed, the second model may be more interesting to some.


Being sold on May 8 is a 1984 Shelby Daytona GTU racing car reportedly built and driven by Neil Hannemann, who went on to the original Dodge Viper program and was then the 2005 Ford GT chief engineer.  This is a unique car with a four-cylinder Chrysler engine,  carbureted; the interior has been  completely replaced with racing gear, including a sheet-metal dashboard sitting alone.

The car is being offered without reserve, with estimates of $5,000 to $10,000 as the sale price, and it’s possible to bid on-line or by phone — or by prior arrangement.
