Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale auction was another full week of automotive splendor. Nowhere else in America does hi-fashion meet hi-stakes collector car sales in such spectacular fashion. Goodguys were onsite all seven days with a bustling booth, showing off our 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 ASV, as well as the G/RS ’69 Camaro. The bright yellow machines were a HUGE hit!
It was not a big year for hot rods and street machines. Plenty sold for fair-market prices, including the Ringbrothers “Afterburner” ’64 Ford Fairlane bringing $225k but it seemed from our vantage point the classics brought the big bucks, with at least 10 cars selling for over one million dollars.
NASCAR team owner and mega-dealer Rick Hendrick stepped up and purchased Don Prudhomme’s Dodge D700 Mongoose & Snake ramp trucks with accompanying funny cars when the package failed to meet reserve. Terms were not disclosed but rumors flew the price was in the range of 6 million.
A ’69 Camaro G-Machine built by Dale Boesch (a former Goodguys Street Machine of the Year finalist car) sold for $85K. Bret Voelkel’s “Grouchy” ’33 Ford hot rod/AutoCross machine sold for $100k. It’s worth mentioning that a few days before selling the Fairlane, Mike & Jim Ring of the Ringbrothers bought a slammed 1969 Winnebago –a funky little motorhome that generated way more good vibes than sale price.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Goodguys booth! It was nice meeting so many new friends! For complete Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction results, click here
