UNCASVILLE, CT (May 23, 2016) – Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions®, will auction a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible (preview) owned by All-Pro tight end Greg Olsen for charity at its inaugural Northeast Auction, June 23-25, 2016, at Mohegan Sun. The car will cross the auction block on June 23rd with 100 percent of the hammer price going to Receptions for Research: The Greg Olsen Foundation benefiting The HEARTest Yard.

“Selling a charity car is one of the most fulfilling things we do at our auctions,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “It is something that has been an important part of our company for a very long time as we’ve helped raise nearly $90 million to date. Having an NFL star like Greg attached to this car makes it very special and I am happy he chose Barrett-Jackson to help with this cause at our inaugural Northeast Auction.”

This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible (preview) features a professionally built engine, transmission and undercarriage using after-market components throughout. A built Dart V8, 427ci small-block engine and a Tremac 5-speed manual transmission power the Camaro. The body, paint and trim have been professionally restored, and the interior features custom upholstery along with dashboard and aftermarket instruments. Other features include aftermarket tires and billet wheels, a cowl-induction fresh-air hood, rear spoiler, body frame connectors and roll bar.

“I wanted this Camaro to improve the lives of families and immediately knew that auctioning it through Barrett-Jackson would be the best way to maximize the exposure for it,” said Olsen. “The auction company is the foremost leader in the industry, and its commitment and willingness to support charitable causes stands out. I’m looking forward to seeing this car cross the block for charity and, having grown up in the Northeast, it’s exciting for me to be a part of Barrett-Jackson’s first event at Mohegan Sun.”
