Boyd Coddington built a great variety of award winning cars. This Southern California icon left us way too soon. But fortunately his cars remain to showcase his vision and talent.
Ron Pratte Collection
Ron Pratte collected plenty of cars over the years and will be selling them at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Arizona in January. While specifics haven’t been finalized, it is thought that all his cars will be sold. Here’s a link to our first article about Ron Pratte selling off his cars.
Pratte never has opened his car collection to the public but we got an exclusive peek a few years ago.
Amongst his collection, Pratte owns the largest collection of Boyd Coddington built cars. Coddington earned fame after winning an AMBR award but many first heard of him on a reality TV show, American Hot Rod – that set the theme for car building TV series.
In Pratte’s collection are a stylistic version of the classic 57 Chevy – Chezoom, a homage to a 32 Delahaye called the Whatthehaye and the AlumaTub.
All three cars reflect Coddington’s iconic style, long sweeping lines and smooth bodysides.
Here’s a link to an article we contributed to eBay Motors on these Boyd Coddington cars.
