Now back at their traditional location, word comes from Russo and Steele that they plan on ushering through no less that four Nickey Chevys at their Scottsdale auction next month.
Not necessarily the first (as lot numbers do not appear to have been assigned as of this writing), but certainly the one to gain the most attention, has to be consignment #9344 pictured above: a 1969 Chevy Camaro “Berger Double COPO.” According to documents, the car originated from Nickey, was sold to Berger and touts COPO numbers 9561 and 9737.
Next on the list is consignment #9343, which is listed as a 1969 Chevy Camaro “Nickey Continuation ZL1 #001.” Particulars include “a correct vintage aluminum 427-cu.in. ZL1 engine and Muncie four-speed close ratio transmission,” as well as a “BE-coded 12-bolt Posi with a 4.10 gear.”
Nickey number three is this 1969 Chevy Chevelle “Nickey Continuation Chevelle #001,” listed under consignment #9342. Although it does contain a desirable 427 like the aforementioned Camaro, its details differ in that the Chevelle’s is an L72 cast-iron unit, backed by a TH400 and obligatory 12-bolt Posi.
And for those who prefer the modern version of go-fast American iron (or if you’re going for some sort of Nickey Trifecta), there’s consignment #9340: a 2010 Chevy Camaro “Nickey Super Camaro #001.” How’s this sound: Stage III 427 capable of 0-60 in less than 4 seconds, and a top speed over 185 MPH.
Did we mention that all four are offered without reserve? If you can’t make it to Scottsdale, look for coverage in our titles in the coming months.
