We featured an article a few weeks ago here on Rat Rods about some awesome patina pickups that were going to be featured at the fall Barrett-Jackson auction in Las Vegas. Well, the auction was held this past weekend and here are the results*! The truck pictured here is a 1950 Chevrolet 5-window and was Lot#120. The truck had a frame-off restoration in 2016 and features a fauxtina paint job! The chassis is a modern S-10 with 4-link rear suspension. The engine is a 350 cubic inch V8 with the typical go-fast goodies. Other upgrades include power steering, disc brakes, new wiring, and new interior. This truck sold for just over $20,000.
Lot#112 was a 1972 Chevrolet pickup that was also a frame-off restoration. The only auction information stated it has a 350 cubic inch V8 with an automatic transmission. You can tell the paint is likely new with the fauxtina treatment. Wheels are 20″+ with low-profile tires. Probably a fun truck to cruise. The truck sold for $25,300.
Lot#320 was a 1970 GMC C1500 long-bed and featured a numbers matching 350 with a 3-on-the-tree manual transmission. The original paint and patina has been clear coated. The truck also has power steering and brakes along with a lowered suspension and rear coil spring kit. It definitely has a farm truck vibe and will probably be a fun ride for the new owner. It sold for a modest (by Barrett-Jackson standards) $6,600.
