An update on the US Marshal’s auction

You may remember a post I made on 29 July 2014 about David Nicoll, who had bought a number of classic muscle cars with “genuine” Blood Money”.  Nicoll was the president of New Jersey’s Biodiagnostic Laboratory Services and set up a blood test bribery scheme which netted him more than US$100 million in total revenue.

In the Hagerty Weekly News they run through some more details on the specific vehicles that will be auctioned off. Like these 2 amazing vehicles below:

Blood Boss 429 Mustang

1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429

1969 Yenko Super Camaro 427 COPO

1969 Yenko Super Camaro 427 COPO

For those who don’t know, the Yenko Super Camaro was a modified Chevrolet Camaro prepared by Yenko Chevrolet, under the personal supervision of Don Yenko. The originals were all first-generation Camaros. When the Camaro debuted, a General Motors corporate edict prevented it from carrying an engine larger than a 400 in³ (6.6 L) V8; this put the Camaro at a serious disadvantage to the Ford Mustang, Plymouth Barracuda and the Dodge Dart since neither Ford nor Plymouth/Dodge had a such a limit.

Don Yenko, however, knew there was a market for an ultra powerful Camaro and found ways around the GM limit.

In 1967, the first year of the Yenko Camaro, Don Yenko ordered L-78 equipped SS Camaros and swapped in the Chevrolet Corvette’s L-72 427 in³ (7.0 L) V8. The horsepower was rated at 450 hp (336 kW)

For 1969, the dealership worked with Chevrolet to have the L-72 engines installed on the factory assembly line using a Central Office Production Order, or COPO. The orders included power disc brakes, a 4.10 Positraction rear end with heat treated axle shafts, (to avoid breakage), a Z-28 front anti-sway bar, and a heavy-duty 4-core radiator. Buyers of the car had the option of either the M-21 four speed or the Turbo Hydramatic 400 automatic transmission. A total of 201 cars were sold in 1969, 171 with four speed transmissions and 30 with automatic transmissions.

Yenko rounded out the visual package with front and rear spoilers, a cowl-induction hood, special “Yenko 427” badges, twin stripes down the flanks and hood, (not with all cars however), and the sYc (Yenko Super Car) badge, (again, not with all cars).

According to the Camaro Research Group, standard black interior (code 711) was the only interior ordered by Yenko..

As always, I would ask if you can, please donate to CFWA.

One of my own Harleys for sale – Au$17,500 o.n.o

This is an “as new” example of a 2005 Harley Davidson FLHRSI Road King Custom.

I personally imported this classic Harley and another (a 2001 Harley Davidson FLTRI Road Glide that is Jade Sun-Glo Pearl in colour – I will post about this bike soon), from the US in late 2013 and had it complied by a RAWS workshop in Victoria.

This motorcycle is in truly great condition and is located in Western Australia and has only done 26,029 km since new!

It is  fully registered and licensed in Western Australia for 6 months. The registration number is “1GU 205”.

I have ridden this bike and take it out for the occasional run to keep the cobwebs away, and I can tell you it runs as smooth as silk and has the power to GO when you need.
