There are three 5,000 sq/ft shops full of parts.  It will take two full days to auction everything off.

I'm helping the family and Murphy put together the auction.  Going to be about 100 cars plus thousands of parts including 100 engines (two complete 426 Hemi engines), HP manifolds, dual snorkel air cleaners - etc, etc.  Everytime I go into the parts building I find more and more cool stuff.  Going to be an epic sale.

Thats great to help out and be in the middle of what is going on. Question: are the cars going to be detailed out or just sold in their present state? And are all 100 cars his or are they mixing them in with others to keep folks at the auction?
 I met Ben at a Mopar show at lake Samammish in 1990,drove my bird there and this huge guy got out of a red challenger convertible vert and we got introduced.  I was invited over to his shop and he was starting to build a new house. He had a rare 69 charger 500 brown I believe and possibly a hemi  shruggy with a factory sun roof and a few more I forget what they were and a couple complete hemi engines sitting on pallets wrapped in plastic.  I guess that was near  the start of his obsession which is just great as we love hoarders here.  Im sure you can't take any pics but that would be great if you could!  Thank you for the info! Tom

I can not imagine that there are going to be any attractive deals for lower end items.

Was it a year and a half or two years ago that there was the sale in Nebraska or Kansas with the dealership guy that kept all the trade in cars. People overpaying for something they generally should not have bought.

There are some high end items here that will rightly go for big dollars. I hope they do.

There is some very good stuff to be offered to be sold here.

As for someone looking for something to restore their cars with, there are probably much better venues.

If one is retired and has lots of free time it would be a good event to watch for fun.

@superbirdtom Haven't decided if we are going to detail out all the cars, probably just going to do that to the higher end cars.  The "yard" cars will probably be left as-is where is.  All 100 cars are his, the auction company is not putting anything extra into the auction.  He still has the Hemi Sunroof Charger.

@redbird No way to know what stuff will sell for but I can pretty much guarantee if you are looking for a good rebuildable big block you will get some cheap.  He probably has over 100 of them, maybe more.  Counted over 100 pumpkins so far too - bet some of those will go cheap.  This isn't the Lembreck Auction - I really doubt things are going to go for double what they are actually worth.

Will post a few pictures here - keep in mind this is a drop in the bucket of all the stuff.

. sounds like a big job for everyone. I didn't see the 70 Hemi Charger, 69 500, or a few others gems on the auction list. Are they finding new of homes outside the auction or perhaps the family is hanging in onto a few things for memory sake?

The Family kept a car or two but the list already includes those cars.  The Hemi 70 Charger is SO buried right now, will post some pics when it gets out.  Couple 64 Sport Fury's will try to get a couple of pictures.

Here is the 71 429 4 Speed car - got a Marti Report on it and it was probably the Seattle Show Car.

Thank you for posting pics! Glad Ben hung on to the 500 I always wondered if he kept it,looks like he kept a LOT!  This will help out many people with their projects as theirs only so many folks that are into Mopars in Washington im sure theirs good deals to be had.  Lotsa project cars for sure.

That 70 Hemi Charger sunroof car has got to be one of the most desirable 70 Charger's of all time. I guess the good thing is that it alone should bring a lot of attention to the auction. Thanks for the info.

70 Cyclone is a 429 4 speed car and the 71 Cyclone is also a 429 4 speed car.  Do not believe any 428 cars.  Has a 69 Cyclone as well that was a 351 car originally but don't know Ford's super well.  Have all the VIN's written down and Marti reports on the two 429 cars if you want more info.

428 was not available in 70 or 71.    

Assuming that 71 is a Spoiler, that's the big dog Cyclone with only 353 made.     429 with stick is top 'o the heap.     Values on these have been unfairly low for a long time.
