Barrett-Jackson Rocks the Mohegan Sun with it's Northeast Collector Car Auction

Uncasville, CT (June 26, 2016) – Barrett-Jackson launched its Northeast collector car auction at the Mohegan Sun Casino this weekend, drawing in tens of thousands of spectators and some 600 consignments.  The Mohegan Sun didn’t know what they were in for as Barrett-Jackson’s inaugural drew in more people to the casino than any other event held at the casino in the past.  The collector car auction sold out the two day auction in just three hours and Arizona Auto Scene was on site to cover its inaugural Northeast event.

The No. 2 seller of the weekend was this 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback

With more than 90,000 spectators and 1,700 bidders, Barrett-Jackson’s Northeast auction put 96 % of it’s consignments into new hands.  The auction had sales in excess of $26 million and sold 552 vehicles.  Craig Jackson said “Not only did we make history by selling out of tickets within hours of opening day, we also filled our docket far ahead of the auction. The overwhelming reception for our Northeast Auction is a testament to the level of respect for Barrett-Jackson in the collector car community.”
