1) JFK Ambulance

Car collector Tammy Allen owns the ambulance which is believed to have carried President John F. Kennedy’s body following his assassination in 1963.

It has been suggested that the Pontiac Bonneville Navy ambulance is actually a replica and not the original ambulance.

2) Hurst Edition Convertible Dodge Viper 2008

In 2008, Hurst chose to celebrate their 50th anniversary with a special edition Viper.

Only 50 of these Hurst Edition Vipers were made, only available in white or black with gold stripes, apart from the first two which were gold with black stripes.

Tammy Allen owns the second Hurst edition, which was the first convertible.

3) 'Retrolet' 2-door Chevrolet Custom 1955

This 1955 Chevrolet was customised by Scott Winfield and his crew from North Carolina. Over 3000 hours were spent fabricating this unique car.

The roof, pillars and glass are from a 1999 Chrysler Concorde, but most of the body panels, including the fenders, rear quarter panels, doors, rockers, and trunk, are new 1955 Chevrolet reproductions that have been heavily modified.

The front lip of the hood is 1955 Chevy, the nose section is from a 1956 Buick, and the rest comes from the roof of a 1960 Chevy Impala. The trunk lid is a hybrid of Concorde and 1955 Chevy, and the trunk and engine bay pieces were all hand fabricated.

Tammy Allen purchased the car at the 2009 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction.

4) No 5 Iacocca Silver 45th Anniversary Edition Mustang

One of only 45 made, the No 5 Iacocca Silver 45th Anniversary Edition Mustang is specially-equipped with a 550 horsepower engine.

Each of the 45 limited edition Iacocca Mustangs is custom-built by a team of talented artists at the Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters in Fountain Valley, Calif.

The car was signed by Lee Iacocca who is known for engineering the Mustang.

5) CL 4-door Sedan Chrysler Imperial 1933

This CL 4-door Sedan Chrysler Imperial is one of only 151 sold during 1933, which was one of the worst years of the Great Depression.

In 1933, the Imperial range was split into two models: the new, simplified CQ which was much less expensive, and the CL, or Custom, which retained all the grandeur of the earlier models.

Tammy Allen purchased it at the 2010 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction.
