Results from the 2014 Barrett-Jackson Auction …

Now that all the hoopla over the world’s biggest collector car auction have come and gone for another year, it is time to consider the results from the 2014 Barrett-Jackson Auction. There were some incredible high dollar sales that will be talked about for years to come. But this 43rd Annual Barrett-Jackson Auction will likely be remembered more as the moment in history when the collector car market recovered from the economic recession.  The results of this year’s Barrett-Jackson Auction were up 10 percent from the 2008 Barrett-Jackson Auction, the last big sale at the Barrett-Jackson before the economic recession hit the economy. This is the first time since 2008 that prices have actually increased over pre-recession levels, and it signals that the collector car market is back.

1969 Pontiac GTO JudgeWe noticed it on Thursday last week when two 1969 Pontiac GTO Judges sold for way over what they were going for in 2013. Check the chart below to view average values in the Cars On Line.com 2013 Market Trends Report. A No. 2 condition, show quality 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge was averaging $73,000 in 2013. On Thursday at the 2014 Barrett-Jackson Auction two Carousel red 1970 Pontiac GTO Judges sold for $110,000 a piece (price includes 10 percent commission paid to Barrett-Jackson as the buyer’s commission.) That actually eclipses the price you could get for a ’69 Judge back in 2008.  And the GTO Judge was not the only muscle car to do that well this year.

“Hot List” of Popular Collector Car Prices …

Below is a chart of average values on popular collector cars based on actual sales figures. In the first column to the right are the average results from the 2014 Barrett-Jackson Auction; the column designated 2013 shows you the average values for 2013 as reported in our Market Trends report for 2013; and the column under 2008 shows you the average values in 2008 just before the collector car market declined in the face of an economic recession. The market has come back. And car collectors can breathe a collective sigh of relief that prices have once again begun to rise for the most desirable collector cars.
