First I brought you Part I, then I brought you Part II, and finally here's Part III. But to recap...

The weekend of September 25-27, Barrett Jackson is holding their final auction of 2014 in Las Vegas, NV. Like most of their other auctions (I firmly believe that Reno has to become a little more established), the docket for Las Vegas fell nothing short of excellence.

Originally I picked out 62 cars that I would have loved to bid on, but I had to trim it down to 45. And here's my final 15...

Sep 25, 2014



2014 has really flown by. September 25-27th are the dates for the last Barrett Jackson auction of the year. Held in Las Vegas, NV, this auction is definitely one you don't want to miss.

After Scottsdale, the docket for Las Vegas is the best. However, this year seems a little different. With Vegas, you can always expect a larger number of exotic cars. This time around, it's mostly domestic cars with some exotic cars. Needless to say, I was able to find 45 cars that I would love to purchase. Enough talking, here's the first 15 to Bernie's Barrett Jackson: Las Vegas picks.



The very first car on my list is shockingly located in Lot 1. This 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale Convertible has a 455/230hp V8 engine with automatic transmission. Red with white trim, red relour cloth bucket seats and white softtop.



Parked in Lot 7, there is a 1958 Pontiac Chieftain Sedan located in it. This Chieftain was owned by the same family since new for 55 years. The car was repainted once in 2009 and a copy of the original Bill of Sale, contract and service policy is included.



A 1966 Ford Mustang is residing in Lot 18. Equiped with a 289hp engine, 4 barrel Edebrock carburetor, and 3 speed manual transmission. This Mustang also has new paint, tires, wheels and hubcaos.



Stationed in Lot 20, we have a 1963 MG Midget Convertible. This Midget runs and drives great, original tonneau cover, new convertible, original jack and side curtains in original bag. And it's in original condition.



Occupying Lot 28, there's is a 1970 Plymouth Duster parked in it. This Duster was upgraded with a 340 engine and automatic transmission. Has an excellent paint job and shows very well. Very clean, rust free car.



Next up for auction, there is a 1960 Mercury Monterey Hardtop in Lot 39. This Monterey is a true survivor car with 59,153 miles with only very good repaint and great front and rear windshield glass and interior.



Number 7 on the list goes to a 1970 Chevy El Camino that's parked in Lot 46. This tuxedo black beauty is a Los Angeles built car with a 350 engine, power steering, power disc brakes, and Vintage Air conditioning added. It's a real eye catcher...



Residing in Lot 54, expect to find a 1957 Cadillac Fleetwood. This is an all originally restored Fleetwood, great lines on body. Runs great, older restoration, and it was garage kept.



A groovy 2000 Jaguar XK8 Convertible is parked in Lot 58. This shagadelic Convertible comes with Austin Powers/Mike Myers signed memorabilia with Certificate of Authenticity for those items. 60,731 original miles, title says exempt.



Next up on the auction block, we have a 1969 Ford Mustang in Lot 69. Every nut and bolt has been replaced. Comes with a 302cid V8 engine, 5-speed transmission and a 4.10 rear end with posi-traction.



When you arrive at Lot 84, you will find a 1954 Buick Roadmaster. This Roadmaster has experienced group-up restoration. It has a rebuilt 322 Nailhead engine and automatic transmission. Power steering, power antenna, power windows, NOS Foxcraft fender skirts, Continental kit spare tire carrier, wide white wall tires, original hubcaps and two tone paint.

Waiting to be purchased in Lot 117 is a 1966 Chevy Nova. Real code 116 V8 street machine style muscle car with a true period look. Starting with a very clean New Mexico car, finished in black with Cobalt blue pearl accents.
