The Salon Collection Rolls Across the Block Saturday Evening as Barrett-Jackson Rolls Towards the End of Auction Week

The Salon Collestion Rolls Across the Block Saturday Evening as Barrett-Jackson Rolls Towards the End of Auction Week

Scottsdale, ARIZ. (January 18, 2014) – On its fifth straight day of auctioning some 2,000 cars at its 2014 Scottsdale auction, Barrett-Jackson put some of its finest consignments across the block Saturday evening when they ran their Salon Collection and 5000 series.

Friday night Barrett-Jackson saw some if its highest sales figures of the week when the #1 2014 COPO Camaro hammered at $700,000 and Gene Simmons Ford Shelby prepared truck hammered at $450,000.  Both vehicles were sold with their proceeds going to charities.

With cars such as a 2013 Gas Monkey Garage COPO Camaro, a 1970 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, a 1968 Chevrolet COPO Camaro, a 1970 Plymouth Hemi Superbird, many pre-war cars and the nostalgic race cars and the period correct haulers of Don “The Snake” Prudhomme and Tom “The Mongoose” McEwen crossing the block, the excitement in the auction room was electrifying.

A 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing crossed the block early in the evening.  $1,900,000.

The hammer dropped at $440,000 on a 1923 Auburn Speedster.

The above pictured 1954 Plymouth Belmont one-off concept car saw the hammer drop at $1,200,000.

Richard Rawlings and Dennis Colling were on hand for the auctioning on Gas Monkey Garage’s rebuild Ferrari F40.  We talked with Dennis about the hammer price of another F40 at another auction.  Dennis described the difference in the cars as “This one was built to drive.”  The hammer dropped at $675,000.

Michael Schumacher’s 1998 F300 Formula 1 car was pushed onto the block on a cart built for the car.  It hammered at $1,700,000.

One of the best deals of Saturday may have been a Plymouth Road Runner Superbird that hammered at $130,000.  We spoke to the owner of the car and he told us the reason he was selling it was his kids didn’t want it.  Though there were other vehicles in his collection they did want, they told him that should anything ever happen to him, they would sell the 440 Six Pack car.  The owner was hoping for $200,000.  A Hemi version had hammered at $500,000 earlier in the day.
