- Exceptional Interior
This beautiful car is presented at auction from the Jim McCall
Collection of Classic Cars. Jim McCall was a builder, renowned for
quality and attention to detail in everything he did. First and
foremost, he was a builder of family, empowering his children to
succeed in their endeavors. Second to that, he built a very
successful real estate development company, With McCall homes being
highly regarded in the region for innovative community design and
environmentally sustainable construction.
Beyond family and business, Jim McCall was a builder of cars.
Applying that same focus on quality and attention to detail in
their restoration, Jim and his group of lifelong friends (calling
themselves "Triers" for their affinity to three deuces atop their
engines) built some incredible cars.Each "Trier" sought to outdo
the others in their builds, producing many exceptional cars well
known in the Northern Rockies classic and collector car
Jim's collection is highly respected! "Good enough" was not
acceptable and nothing was left unfinished.His work on cars was not
for profit or for accolades, but rather to bring the past alive
with a statement!Following Jim's passing while doing what he loved
best, his family is making this car available at auction.The
information presented below is from one of Jim's children who,
while growing up, was present during many of the builds.
Unfortunately, attention was often elsewhere at the time. His main
task during these builds was bead blasting the bucket of bolts,
fasteners and other items removed from the cars during restoration.
As mentioned...attention to detail was key!
Acquired in 2004, this 1968 Camaro Convertible was subjected to a
complete, frame-off, rotisserie restoration. The exceptional build
produced this absolutely beautiful black on red Camaro. The
timeless, vintage look of the 1st Generation Camaro provides that
special look and appeal with modern driving pleasure. The power
convertible top works effortlessly and features the glass rear
window. The car was completed in 2005 and still presents
exceptionally well today!
A 427 V-8 was professionally built for the car and mated to an
automatic transmission. The Edelbrock intake and carburetor,
headers and the custom exhaust provide the performance and
distinctive sound that commands attention. The aluminum radiator
and dual fans give the airflow and cooling required for cruising
pleasure. Four wheel disc brakes offers driving confidence and
control. The car shows less than 1300 miles since restoration.
