(Curator) Eric Joiner of Leaded Gas Classics has been a client for many years. We have worked with him to select the best cars for our auction.”
Among the cars being offered from the McLane/Leaded Gas collection are a 2006 Ford GT, a 1968 Shelby Mustang GT500KR convertible, a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427 convertible, a 1970 Plymouth AAR ‘Cuda (one of only 12 in Sassy Grass color), a 1989 Ferrari Testarossa, a 1928 Chevrolet Depot Hack “desert coach” and a one-off 1968 Pontiac LeMans Safari prototype sport truck built by Pontiac for the division’s president.
