Barrett-Jackson Accelerates Northeast Auction with a Week of Collector Car Events

UNCASVILLE, CONN. – June 1, 2017 – Barrett-Jackson is kicking its 2nd Annual Northeast Auction into overdrive with a full week of collector car activities, events and unparalleled auction action. Building on the momentum from last year’s first double sellout in the company’s history, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auction® is fueling the enthusiasm of the collector car hobby across the Northeast with its premier automotive lifestyle event at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut, June 21-24, 2017. Barrett-Jackson will rev up for the week of activities as the title sponsor of the New England Concours d’Elegance, which begins Saturday, June 17. Additional events and activities will continue through the week, culminating with the highly anticipated auction at Mohegan Sun.

“We are extremely grateful to all those who supported our inaugural Northeast Auction last year,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “The electricity generated at last year’s record-setting event was unforgettable. This year, we decided to build on that high energy by creating even more collector car activities for the whole family, first by serving as the presenting sponsor of the New England Concours d’Elegance and continuing with our Northeast Auction.”

Activities revving up the week in the Northeast include:  New England Concours d’Elegance sponsored by Barrett-Jackson – Saturday, June 17, through Sunday, June 18, 2017  New England Concours d’Elegance Summer Tour – Monday, June 19  2nd Annual Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction Preview Day on Wednesday, June 21  2nd Annual Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction from Thursday, June 22 to Saturday, June 24

Consignments are already pouring in for Barrett-Jackson’s Northeast Auction, including one of the world’s most desirable supercars, a 2017 Ferrari 488 Spider, which can only be purchased outside of this auction by joining an extensive waiting list. This Corsa Red prancing horse (Lot #657) has only 77 miles and features a power retractable hardtop, 3.9-liter V8 engine, 7-speed F1 dual clutch transmission and over $90,000 in optional equipment. Also crossing the block is an incredibly rare ’70 Ford Mustang Boss 429 (Lot #650). With a fresh restoration and only 10 test miles on the odometer, this Grabber Blue Boss 429 is an extremely coveted Mustang and includes the Drag Pack convenience group, competition suspension and 429 Boss engine with 375 horsepower.

The Northeast Auction will add more examples of American performance and design to the auction block with a ’66 Shelby GT350-H Fastback (Lot #665.1). One of only 59 built in Ivy Green, this authentic Shelby was completely restored in 2010 and is fully documented in the SAAC Shelby Registry.

Also on the docket is a custom ’66 Corvette Pro-Touring Convertible (Lot #652), which is a ground-up build on an Art Morrison chassis. Under the hood is a ground-shaking LS3 engine with a custom forced-intake manifold mated to a 5speed manual transmission. The interior is completely new and Dyno-matted from the firewall back.

“It’s clear from the unprecedented response to our inaugural Northeast Auction that Barrett-Jackson is a perfect fit for the area,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “We bring in enthusiasts from across the region, as well as international guests. I have no doubt that this year’s auction will bring a whole new level of energy to the collector car community across New England.”
