1939 Cadillac LaSalle among cars donated by celebrities for charity

Barrett-Jackson will host an eclectic line up of vehicles that will cross the block at No Reserve to benefit local and national charitable organizations during its Scottsdale (Arizona) auction Jan. 10-18, 2015. Among the most anticipated vehicles consigned will be Jeff Gordon and Ray Evernham’s 1999 No. 24 Pepsi Chevrolet Monte Carlo (Lot #3007) and PGA Tour champion, Bubba Watson’s ’39 Cadillac LaSalle C-Hawk Custom Hardtop Roadster (Lot #3005). The NASCAR legend and PGA Tour champion donated the vehicles in order to benefit the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation and Birdies for the Brave charities respectively.

We’re grateful to those who chose our Scottsdale auction as a way to help some truly amazing charities,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson.

Gordon’s car won the inaugural Busch Series event at Phoenix International Raceway in 1999. The team’s Pepsi-sponsored cars ran six races with Gordon as driver and Evernham as crew chief.

The custom LaSalle C-Hawk is a hand-crafted all-steel car with custom tube frame and a retractable hardtop. Under the hood it features a fuel injected, supercharged 556hp Cadillac LSA engine with 6-speed automatic transmission and custom Borla exhaust.
