2014 Barrett-Jackson Auction Friday

1969 Boss 429 Mustang 2014 Barrett-Jackson Auction Friday

2014 Barrett-Jackson Auction Friday …

SCOTTSDALE, AZ — At the 2014 Barrett-Jackson Auction Friday sale there is a marked intensity as spectators and buyers are packed shoulder to shoulder here in the auction building . We are beginning to think this 43rd Annual Barrett-Jackson event is going to set attendance records. And the big money is already in the house.

Here are some of the sales we have announced on our Facebook page. Let’s see if our Facebook readers are right about the prices these cars will bring.

1969 Pontiac Trans Am

A rare 1969 Pontiac Trans Am is said to have only five miles on it since the restoration. They say it is one of only five such cars built in California and resided there with no rust. They say it has had a five-year, 100-point concours restoration. This one could be a No. 1 condition car which takes it out of the No. 2 category. Should be a six figure car, right? According to the Barrett-Jackson website, it sold for $135,000 (with $13,500 added on for the buyer’s commission fee to the Barrett-Jackson.)

 

1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible

A very rare color combination on this 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible sets it apart from the other ’57 convertibles in the sale. Let’s see what this Harbor blue over blue two-tone ’57 will be bid up to. It even has matching two-tone blue interior. Other options include the popular Power Pack with the 283 ci V8, automatic transmission, Continental kit, spinner hubcaps, bumper guards and many more convenience accessories. Sold for $105000.

 

1963 Ford Galaxie 500 Thunderbolt

The description on this 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 says it is one of the factory super stock lightweight cars. They say it has the R code 427 V8 rated at 425 hp with 2×4 carburetors and 4-speed transmission.It has a bubble hood, BorgWarner T-10 4-speed transmission with an NHRA scatter-shield and heavy duty 9″ rear end with 4.11:1 gears. This one will be pretty hard to predict. Sold at $102,000.

 

1969 Boss 429 Mustang

This is a tough one. The Raven black 1969 Boss 429 Mustang you see here is pretty much a “barn find.” They say it is an unrestored Boss 9 with factory color code Raven Black, black interior, matching numbers original car. But because it is not in No. 2 or better condition it probably won’t go for top dollar. Our Facebook readers just can’t believe it! It went for $160,000, paint chips, dents and all.

 

1970 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 Convertible

Although very rare, this 1970 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 Convertible has not been restored to original. The color has been changed. There is no statement of originality with this one either. So the chances are that this W-30 won’t get the six figures that a documented original would normally achieve. But it is a really beautiful car with a big block 455. So what do you think it will bring at auction? Well, now we know. Can you believe $100,000?

 

1932 Ford Custom Sedan

The most extreme modified 1932 Ford Custom Sedan in the show tonight is a tribute to the Dave Stuckey car called Lil Coffin. It has been shown at the Grand National Roadster Show, Detroit Autorama and World of Wheels, taking Best in Class at each show. Notice it has been chopped, channeled and sectioned with a unique cantilevered roof. The steel belly pan has 180 louvers. It is powered by a 291cid DeSoto HEMI with six Stromberg 97 carburetors, Isky cam, custom headers and a 3-speed manual transmission. This will be an interesting sale. What will it bring? It was actually well bought at $73,000.

 

1967 Corvette 427/435 Convertible

One of the most desirable big block Corvettes of all time is this 1967 Corvette 427/435 Convertible. The description says it is is a matching numbers 1967 Marina Blue 427/435hp Corvette roadster. This car has the original Tank Sticker, Protect-O-Plate, Build Sheet and original owner’s manual. The factory options include L71 427/435hp engine, G81 posi-traction 4.11 ratio, N11 off-road exhaust, F41 special purpose suspension, M21 close ratio transmission, A-01 tinted glass, U69 AM/FM radio, QB1 red stripe tires and K66 transistor ignition. It ends up being sold for $88,000 ($96,800 with the Barrett-Jackson’s buyer commission included.)

The 2014 Barrett-Jackson Auction will have a new look this year as nearly everything about the show has changed. They have a new auction stadium compliments of the city of Scottsdale, so the grounds are set up very differently this year. You will also note that FOX Sports has bought out the SPEED Channel so the schedule for watching the Barrett-Jackson on TV is very different this year. You need a schedule to find out which segments of the auction will be seen on the different channels. See the schedule at the bottom of this page.

As a preview here are some of the “prime time” vehicles you’ll see going through the auction on Saturday. All are from the 5000 Series of special cars to be auctioned off during the late afternoon and early evening broadcast of the auction on the National Geographic Channel. (For a full schedule of TV coverage see the chart at the bottom of this page.)

1932 Auburn Boattail Speedster

A 1932 Auburn Boattail Speedster is among the top cars to be sold at the 2014 Barrett-Jackson Auction on Saturday. It is part of the Barrett-Jackson’s Salon Collection of most important collector cars to be sold. The Salon Collection is the 5000 series of lot numbers. They will cross the auction block beginning at 5 PM Mountain Time in Scottsdale.

 

1963 Shelby Cooper King Cobra

Also being offered for sale on Saturday in the Salon Collection is a 1963 Shelby Cooper Monaco King Cobra. This car could really bring big money as there were only six of them built. They believe that it is the most authentically restored and documented one left.
