Lot #674 - Built by the late award-winning builder Tony Carlini. Dubbed Black Bart, this is the 4-wheel version of Carlini's one-time line of custom show motorcycles. This unique creation was painstakingly built utilizing the finest craftsmanship and components available. Notably, the original steel body was completely restored and finished in a lustrous black paint, while inside, the cabin's interior and trunk area are fully appointed in custom Mocha leather throughout for comfort and convenience. Air conditioning, all polished components, and a complete set of Auto Meter gauges are just some of the extras lavished on this car. Under the sleek hood resides a custom-built, balanced, blueprinted and detailed 462ci Chevrolet big block, coupled to GM's fabulous Turbo Hydramatic 400 automatic transmission. Power is then transferred to the rear wheels via a polished Currie 9 posi-traction differential with an easy cruising ratio of 3.25:1. Power 4-wheel disc brakes provide the stopping power, while power rack & pinion steering, a 4-link suspension in the rear and many modern additions make this as good a driver as it is a looker. From the Tammy Allen Collection.
