20150117-DSC02788

Scottsdale, ARIZ.  (January 18, 2015) – Barrett-Jackson draws in consignors and bidders from near and far, but this year is was Valley automobile collector Ron Pratte bringing the most to the auction at Westworld of Scottsdale.  Pratte would ultimately bring the vehicle that would hammer on the block for Saturday night’s highest number, a cool $4 million dollars.  The automobile in question was Pratte’s Futureliner.  All proceeds from its sale went to the Armed Forces Foundation (AFF).  Several others in the crowd jumped in on the hype, donating another $650,000 to the more than worthy cause.

Ford’s Shelby GT350R hammered at $1,000,000.  All proceeds of the newest GT350 on the market will go to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).  Someone in the audience threw in another $100,000 for the cause after the hammer dropped.

Other million plus dollar sales Saturday night included the 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 “Super Snake” which sold for $5,115,000.  The 1954 Pontiac Bonneville Special Motorama Concept Car sold for $3,300,000.  A 1949 Talbot-Lago T-26 Grand Sport Coupe was the first million plus dollar sale of the day at $1,650,000.  A 1965 Shelby Cobra 427 Roadster sold for $1,595,000.  A 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing Coupe sold for $1,100,000 and a 1937 Mercedes-Benz 320B Cabriolet selling for $1,045,000 rounds out the  bottom of the million plus dollar sales on Saturday night.

The guys over at Gas Monkey Garage in Texas gave their salvaged 1991 Ferrari F40 another run across the Barrett-Jackson block this year.  It sold for $643,500.
