SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. – Dec. 8. 2016 – Barrett-Jackson, The World's Greatest Collector Car Auctions®, has lined up an incredible docket of rare, collectible customs and hot rods for the 46th Annual Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction, to be held Jan. 14-22, 2017, at the WestWorld of Scottsdale in Arizona. Among the featured customs to cross the auction block in Scottsdale is Boyd Coddington's 'Alumatub,' as well as 'Brass Monkey,' a 1939 Chevrolet custom truck built by Eldred Hotrod Shop.

'The customs and hot rods we have crossing the block in Scottsdale are truly among the cream of the crop,' said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. 'Many of the cars have been given the highest honors in the industry and have graced the covers of national publications. The craftsmanship behind these customs, like 'Alumatub' and 'Brass Monkey,' is simply unprecedented, and our 2017 Scottsdale docket will reflect some of the biggest stars among customs and hot rods.'

Boyd Coddington's 'Alumatub' (Lot #1434) was built on the popular 'American Hot Rod' TV series on the Discovery Channel. Its hand formed all-aluminum body was built by Marcel Delay on a specially constructed Coddington aluminum frame and chassis. Under the hood is an aluminum 350ci Chevy engine with Barry Grant demon three-deuce carburetion and a Powerglide transmission with a Mooneyes electronic shifter.

'Brass Monkey' (Lot #1329) is a 1939 Chevrolet truck custom built as a personal vehicle by Doug Eldred and completed in early 2016. The truck started with the original cab and is now a full unibody construction that integrates a custom-built chassis outfitted with the latest in componentry. The small-block Chevy engine is connected to a GM 700R4 automatic overdrive transmission that drives a 4:10-ratio rear end in a custom Currie housing. Stopping power is provided by Johnson's Hot Rod Shop Kinmont brakes.

'The craftsmanship in our custom and hot rod consignments is simply awe-inspiring,' said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. 'For many of these vehicles, no expense was spared and no detail was left untouched. These customs are truly works of rolling art and will make a wonderful addition to someone's collection in January.'

'Eye Candy' (Lot #1358) is a stunning one-of-a-kind 1958 Chevrolet Custom Convertible restored by Patrick's Classy Cars of Phoenix. It is powered by a 556-horsepower LSA supercharged engine and rides on 8-inch polished Budnik Illusion wheels specifically designed for the handling and performance of this chassis.
