Mecum to auction part of baseball great Reggie Jackson's car collectionThu, 29 Jul 2010 00:00:00 -0700
Baseball Hall-of-Famer and five-time World Series winner Reggie Jackson bought his first car before he could legally drive. And while that Ford won't be offered at the Mecum Monterey Auction, 15 cars from his collection will.
A 1969 ZL1 COPO Camaro is among the headliners to cross the auction block. As No. 51 in a production sequence of 69 cars, Jackson's ZL1 is believed to be one of five or six still with its original engine.
Other vehicles featured include Jackson's 1941 Willys Steel coupe, 1962 Volkswagen Beetle and 1957 Chevrolet Bel-Air Convertible.
