'Attention grabbing' 1957 Chevy stars in Orange County auction

Barrett-Jackson's forthcoming Collector Car Auction in Orange County, California, promises a range of classic automobiles for discerning motor enthusiasts on June 25-27.

Among the sale's classic lots is a Best of Show winner from 1957: an original Chevrolet Bel Air Sport Coupe with a stunning sierra gold exterior.

This fully-restored Chevy is equipped with a 283cid V8 engine, complimented with an upgraded Hurst four-speed manual transmission. Its engine was fully-rebuilt in 2010, with only 1,000 miles currently on the clock.

According to the seller, the Chevy "catches everyone's attention" and also happens to have a very nice stereo system to go with its white and sierra gold interior.

Elsewhere, fans of classic Jaguars won't want to miss this 1969 XKE Convertible with a black exterior, biscuit coloured tan leather interior and 4.2 litre engine.

The Series II XKE has several mechanical upgrades for a guaranteed excellent drive; including a lightened fly wheel, five-speed Borg Warner transmission and an oversized aluminium radiator.

The XKE has been lovingly restored to original specifications, and is carried along on Dayton wire wheels and nearly-new Pirelli P4000 tires.

Barrett-Jackson's unmissable sale will also feature a number of Fords, Packards, Chevrolets and Cadillacs from throughout the 20th century.

The auction will be held at the OC Fair & Event Center, Orange County.

Meanwhile, Jaguar collectors in the UK won't want to miss Barons' Classic and Collectors car auction in Surrey on June 15, offering one of the most desirable E-Types: the S1 Fixed Head Coupe.
