Nearly 100 classic American muscle cars are heading to auction this month.
Coyote Johnson is the owner of one of the most impressive muscle car collections we've ever seen. Over the past 40 years, he's amassed nearly 100 muscle cars from Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge, Plymouth and Pontiac. This month, Johnson's massive muscle car collection is heading to auction for another American muscle car fanatic to cherish. Coyote earned his name from chasing Plymouth Road Runners. During his high school years, he would obsessively scan the classifieds looking for his next ride to race.
It didn't take long before his car collecting habit turned into a hoarding obsession as his yard was soon filled with muscle cars including Chargers, Impalas, GTOs, Chevelles and Trans Ams. He even built custom buildings around them to protect them.
His first car was a 1969 Plymouth Road Runner, but that model isn't for sale since it presumably has a lot of sentimental value. The condition of the cars in the Coyote Johnson collection vary significantly. Some look pristine and still run, but some aren't in working order and will require a lot of work to restore back to their former glory.
Among the highlights in this amazing collection include a 1968 Dodge Charger, 1971 Dodge Super Bee, 1974 Dodge Challenger, 1965 Chevrolet Impala SS 2dr HT, 1969 Chevrolet Z28 Camaro Sport Coupe, 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Sport Coupe, 1968 Ford Mustang Coupe, 1971 Plymouth Road Runner, 1972 Plymouth Cuda 1965 Oldsmobile Cutlass, and a Smokey and the Bandit-style 1978 Pontiac Trans-Am.
Every car will also be sold without a reserve, so this could be a great opportunity if you want to start a classic muscle car collection. The auction will be held at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds on September 14. You can find a list of the complete collection on the VanDerBrink Auctions website.
