GAA Classic Cars February 2024 Preview

GAA Classic Cars Preview

GAA Classic Cars have been expanding their sales in both volume of cars and values of those cars. Their February 2024 auction has something for every collector from muscle cars to a wide selection of sports cars. We wanted to offer a preview of some of the lots that offer the most exciting opportunities to add to a collection without breaking the bank.

Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, an Italian automotive designer who founded Italdesign, in collaboration with John Z. DeLorean, the DMC-12 is best known for its appearance in a particular movie trilogy. Produced in Northern Ireland, the DMC-12 was highly anticipated when it launched but interest faded over time with about 7,000 examples produced before bankruptcy forced the factory to shut down.

The car offered by GAA includes original factory books and features the rarer black interior. It’s equipped with air conditioning and an automatic transmission paired with its V6 engine. The DMC-12 is continuing to gain relevance in the collector car market and shows no sign of decreasing in collectibility any time soon.

Developed by Porsche in collaboration with Volkswagen, the 914 was produced from 1969 to 1976. It was powered by a flat-four cylinder engine that produced 80 horsepower at its base configuration. Although it didn’t reach the same level of success as the 911, it’s still a notable and collectible Porsche these days.

The one being offered by GAA includes a removable hardtop and is well-documented back to its original owner in Seattle. It presents very nicely in its original color combination and is equipped with upgraded sound system.

Chrysler debuted the Dodge Viper RT/10 in a move that would go on to earn its place as one of the icons of American sports cars. Equipped with an 8.0L V10, that produces 415 horsepower and a six-speed manual transmission.

The Viper set to be offered by GAA includes a removable targa top and features carbon fiber trim on the dash. It’s one of 458 examples built for 1995 in red and a total of 1,577 that year. It’s equipped with its original Mopar stereo and is believed to have around 14,000 original miles. Though it isn’t quite as desirable as the 1992 model year, the 1995 is still the same raw, visceral combination of muscle and sports car that laid the foundation for the legend that is the Dodge Viper.

The Porsche 944 replaced the 924 and featured a more powerful engine along with improvements to the suspension and better aerodynamics. It was powered by a 2.5L inline four-cylinder engine and the one being offered by GAA is equipped with a five-speed manual transmission.

The extremely notable thing about this example is that it’s covered just 44 miles since it was new. GAA’s auction will be the first time the car has been publicly offered for sale since it was new. It’s equipped with leather and air conditioning, along with power windows, power steering, and a power sunroof.

Despite a relatively short production run, the Road Runner had quite the impact on the world of muscle cars and its exhaust note echoes to this day in the automotive enthusiast world. The example set to be offered for sale by GAA underwent a ten year restoration that left it presenting very nice in its factory-correct Sublime Green paint.

It’s equipped with power disc brakes and power steering and is equipped a 383 cubic inch V8. It features refurbished and NOS parts and comes from a notable Mopar collection in North Carolina.
