The excitement is building with The Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction being only a month away. Whether you’re looking to buy your dream car or delightfully browse those collector’s dreams, the 2014 show will not disappoint. Here’s a look at some of the unique cars you’ll find this year:

1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing: If you recall last years auction, the same model, originally owned by Clark Gable, sold for $1.9 million. Why is this car so special you ask? Because this is the first model of Mercedes iconic SL-Class, and the gullwing doors were only available from 1955-57. It’s also one of the most recognizable collector cars around.

1967 Ford Mustang Custom Fastback: Pure American muscle. This classic will get muscle car junkies going. For the past 50 years, the Mustang has long been considered the car that represented American automobile. Make sure to take a gander at this beauty when it crosses the block in January.

1929 Rolls-Royce Springfield Phantom I Brewster Ascot Phaeton: Placed in the coveted “Salon Collection” this Rolls-Royce will be featured on the Saturday night of the event. With only 21 Ascot Phaeton’s built, you know why it was placed in such a prestigious collection. Expect this gem to go for a very high price.
