One of the things we look forward to most about Barrett-Jackson auctions is seeing the cars that will be up for auction. But what makes us even more excited is seeing the cars that will be auctioned off for charity! There are always a handful of cars at the Barrett-Jackson auctions in which the proceeds go directly to charity. It's a beautiful thing!
With that being said, take a look at the cars currently lined up to be auctioned off for charity at the 2017 Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction.
1970 CHEVROLET CAMARO CUSTOM COUPE

With a black-over-black color scheme, it's appointed with power steering, Vintage Air, custom 3" exhaust and custom driveshaft. The undercarriage was sprayed with Raptor truck-bed liner.

2014 FORD HOT WHEELS TRANSIT CONNECT
Charity: 100 PERCENT OF HAMMER PRICE TO BENEFIT THE DARRELL GWYNN CHAPTER OF THE BUONICONTI FUND TO CURE PARALYSIS
Ford Motor Company is auctioning the world's only life-sized Hot Wheels Transit Connect to benefit the Darrell Gwynn Foundation. This 2014 Ford Transit Connect in Hot Wheels livery was revealed at the 2013 SEMA show. It features an entirely custom, Euro-look wide-body kit, Rotiform ROC wheels, sleeping quarters and tool storage, with slide-out drawers for Hot Wheels cars. Michigan-based custom builder Ice 9 Group worked with designers from Ford and Hot Wheels to create this one-of-a-kind dream machine. Using computer-aided drafting and tooling, they removed the old body panels and crafted an entirely new look. Every single aspect of the exterior is different, including the roof. Powered by a 2.5-liter engine, the Hot Wheels Transit Connect was widened 4" in front and 6" at the rear. It features functional custom exhaust, gullwing doors, new front fascia and bumpers inspired by Focus RS, and custom 20" wheels. The interior was customized with a Sortimo secondary floor installed covering the tool storage, a 55" television screen, two 18" tablets in the rear doors and custom Recaro seats. Two Hot Wheels Orange tracks are recessed in the bed, forming a drag strip right down the center of the van. Mattel also offered a 1:64 diecast scale model of the custom vehicle through retailers worldwide. All proceeds from the sale will benefit the Darrell Gwynn Quality of Life Chapter of The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis. Led by the former drag racer, the Chapter has several quality critical initiatives, including wheelchair donations, and assists in raising funds and awareness to support The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis.
