Stunningly restored Restomod American classic Muscle cars to be offered at auction.
As you may be able to tell, I am passionate about my cars and a bit of a petrol head. There is a term here that many of you may not be familiar with and that is ‘Restomod’. Many of you may be thinking ‘What is a Restomod’?
A Restomod is a Classic Car such like these Classic American Muscle cars I will be sharing with you in this post. Restored back to their former glistening glory with a twist, yes a twist. They are restored using parts from a more Modern Car. Intrigued, then keep on reading.
Restomod American Muscle Cars at auction with The Market.
So lets recap a little on who The Market is. I shared with you all an old F1 Classic they had for auction – An Incredibly rare and useable 2002 Jordan Honda EJ12.
The Market helps people to buy and sell their classic vehicles through innovative curated auctions via its state-of-the-art, high security online platform and app.
Both of the American Muscle cars combine classic iconic looks with modern supercar performance.
The Auctions for these beauties close on the 9th & 10th November with guide prices of around £100,000.
Not one, but two impeccable and iconic American Restomod muscle cars are being offered at auction with The Market. Giving petrolheads a rare opportunity to acquire possibly two of the most stunning and powerful examples of American muscle cars for sale UK.
Firstly a 1970 Ford Mustang SVT Terminator Cobra
Bidding for this utterly stunning 1970 Ford Mustang SVT Terminator Cobra will start on the 2nd November, the auction is set to close a week later. With an estimated price on this Classic American Muscle car looking to fetch around the £90,000 – £120,000 price mark.
The Ford Mustang is a true Blue Oval thoroughbred. This particular Mustang’s modernisation combines the classic muscle car looks of the 1970s original with many upgraded components from a 2003/4 ‘Terminator’ Cobra developed by Ford’s in-house SVT team.
Now fitted with a 2.6-litre Kenne Bell supercharger, the tuned 4.6-litre V8 petrol engine delivers a hefty 688bhp punch, up from its original 390bhp, which is capable of powering the car to an estimated top speed of over 180mph.
Indeed, the entire 21st century Ford engine, drivetrain, chassis and suspension remains intact as per its original design, meaning it delivers stunning performance guaranteed to deliver many smiles per mile.
Secondly a 1974 Dodge Challenger Hellcat
Finished in the striking original Mopar Snakeskin Green, the Dodge features a number of custom engineering upgrades designed to bring the very best out of this Classic American muscle car.
The engine bay of this Restomod 1974 Dodge Challenger is now home to a modern Dodge Hellcat engine with a jaw-dropping power output of 707bhp. The car’s raw power has been complemented with a custom suspension setup from Control Freaks, ensuring that it performs just as well as it looks.
the Auction will start on this 1974 Dodge Challenger Hellcat on the 3rd November and just like the 1970 Ford Mustang the auction will finish a week later. This Restomod 1974 Dodge Challenger is estimated to fetch around £85,000 – £100,000 respectively.
The Market Director ‘Tristen Judge’ had the following to say regarding the auction of these Restomod Muscle Cars.
“Both of these beauties in their original form are genuine motoring icons, guaranteed to set pulses racing. However, the extent of work, detail and expense that has been spent on their modernisation, meaning that their new owners can enjoy thrilling modern day performance and iconic classic looks, takes them to a whole new level and makes them utterly desirable.”
“To be able to offer just one of these stunning restomods would be fantastic, but to have a pair of such quality is a real rarity. The cars’ new owners will be able to enjoy the unique blend of iconic classic muscle car looks with modern day supercar performance and handling.
“While these types of cars certainly have a niche appeal, given the genuine quality and craftsmanship of their transformation, we expect bidding to be highly competitive and we wish all bidders the very best of luck.”
