John Justo car collection to headline forthcoming classics auction

World class street rods will be offered from the John Justo classic car collection in Florida

The John Justo Collection, which features numerous high gradestreet rods, is to star at Mecum's forthcoming 10 day automobile event in Florida. The enormous, potentially record breaking sale (January 18-27) already has over 2,200 cars consigned and has been billed as "Where The Cars Are".

The current line up features a bespoke, fire engine red 1937 Ford Cabriolet street rod, boasting the original frame.

With a month to go before the sale, estimates have not yet been published, however we believe a price of $100,000 is possible, based on previous auction results.

Having been scorned immediately after its arrival on the market; the street rod is something of an American icon today. Street rods and hot rods captured the imaginations of car enthusiasts across America following the second world war, spawning the drag racing and custom car movement which still remains popular.

A similar 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray Split sold at Bonhams in September 2012 for 36,225 ($58,715). Will this Riverside Red Corvette match that price in January?

Another highlight from the John Justo Collection is an award winning Riverside Red 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Split Window Coupe with only 5,500 miles on the odometer.

A similar 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray Split, which showed 73,315 km on the clock, sold at Bonhams in September 2012 for 36,225 ($58,715).
