Picks from Mecum 2017 Monterey Sale

Ford Pintos: the buttcrack of many a joke. But everybody has a Pinto story. And today, a great Pinto is far more exclusive and a guaranteed crowd favorite virtually anywhere you happen to be. Original and unrestored with 39,437 miles, original paint, interior and trim. Original simulated woodgrain paneling. 4-speed manual transmission, factory air conditioning and mag wheels. Orange on orange and they just don't make em like this anymore. $15,000 - $20,000
1947 Harley-Davidson FL Knucklehead comes with a matching sidecar and shows 1,000 miles since mechanical and cosmetic restoration that included an engine and transmission rebuild. One of the most-iconic engines ever built was the Harley-Davidson Knucklehead. The nickname “knucklehead” was chosen because portions of the heads resembled the human knuckle. $50,000 - $60,000
1931 Ford Model A Mobilgas Tanker is a throwback to a simpler time. It is built on an all-steel Model A roadster pickup, the rarest and most desirable of all Ford pickups. The pickup is powered by the 40 HP L-head, inline 4-cylinder engine backed by a 3-speed manual transmission. Period-correct in every way. $50,000 - $65,000
