The 6th Annual Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show will take place November 22-23, at the beautiful Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, (greater Chicago), Illinois. It may seem like a long time away, but it will be here before you know it.
The MCACN team has confirmed many of the Invitational and Special displays for 2014. These displays showcase the absolute best of the best and the rarest of the rare. This is where you will see many cars that are rarely seen by the public, from private collections that join us from across the country.
The 50th Anniversary “Class of 1964” Invitational display will have some unexpected surprises in store. Of course, 1964 was a significant year for Muscle Car enthusiasts for many reasons; the launch of Chryslers 426 Hemi, the introduction of the Pontiac GTO and Fords Mustang are among the highlights. You can bet these milestones will be celebrated, not only in this display but additional special gatherings this year. Expect to see several of the finest original factory built 1964 426 Hemi cars from both Dodge and Plymouth.
There are plans to include not just one, not even two, but a whole row of 1964 R-code 427 4-speed Galaxie convertibles, all documented real 427 R-code cars, several of which are being restored as we speak.
If you own a real 409 powered Chevy, a Max Wedge Mopar, maybe a 2+2 Pontiac or dual quad Buick Riviera or Wildcat, a Paxton supercharged Studebaker or maybe even a 427 powered Mercury, organizers would love to talk to you. There are several very real ‘64 vintage drag cars lined up as well.
As is the case with all invitational displays, cars must be real documented factory built examples, absolutely no “clones” or “tributes.” Complete information, including contact information, can be found at www.mcacn.com
