The Scottsdale edition of the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction is one of the pre-eminent events of its kind in the world. Each year, vehicles of all makes go to new homes after selling for eye-popping figures.

Among them are always many from Chevrolet. We’ve compiled the top 10 Chevy earners below, several of which feature crate engines and other parts and accessories from Chevrolet Performance. We’ve made sure to include details on the power plants in each one.

1970 Chevrolet Chevelle Custom Coupe

10. 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle Custom Coupe ($326,700)

Kicking off this year’s list of the top earners at Barrett-Jackson is a Chevelle with some serious giddyup thanks to the supercharged, 755-horsepower Chevrolet Performance LT5 crate engine* under the hood. The engine is mated to a Super Magnum six-speed manual transmission to complete the Connect & Cruise Crate Powertrain System. The Chevelle sits on a Roadster Shop chassis powder-coated in black and is finished in Sikkens black paint.

1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 Convertible

T7. 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 Convertible ($330,000)
Another 1970 Chevelle has made its way into the top 10 in the form of this iconic SS 396 convertible. Perhaps the most identifiable feature is the vehicle’s engine: the 396 cu.-in. L78 making 355 horsepower. The matching-numbers engine is backed up with a Muncie M20 four-speed manual transmission and a factory 3.55 posi-traction rear axle. Part of the Raser Collection, this Fathom Blue car received a full frame-off restoration and scored a win at the Concours d’Elegance. A wide range of historical documents went to the winning bidder as well.

1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6

T7. 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6 ($330,000)
Yet another special 1970 Chevelle is up next on our list. Also part of the Raser Collection, this LS6 Super Sport is one of the pinnacle vehicles of the muscle-car era. This particular Code 28 Fathom Blue Chevelle is powered by a CRV-coded LS6 454 cu.-in. V-8 engine making 450 horsepower, a Muncie M22 four-speed manual transmission and original 4.10 gear-ratio, 12-bolt posi-traction rear end. The original engine and rear axle are the original units installed at the Chevrolet factory as certified by Chevelle expert Jerry MacNeish.

1967 Chevrolet Corvette Custom Sting Ray Convertible

T7. 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Custom Convertible ($330,000)
The second appearance of Chevrolet Performance on this list comes in the powertrain of this 1967 Corvette Sting Ray restomod. It utilizes one of the most popular Connect & Cruise Powertrain Systems available: a 6.2L LS3 crate engine* mated to a Super Magnum six-speed manual transmission. The system in this particular car turns out 525 horsepower and 486 lb.-ft. of torque. The gray Corvette sits on a powder-coated Street Shop C2/C7 chassis.

1963 Chevrolet Corvette Custom LT4 Split-Window Coupe

6. 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Custom Split-Window Coupe ($385,000)
A silver head-turner, this 1963 ’Vette started life as an original split-window, but the Paul Atkins custom build updated it with a complete frame-off restoration and many performance updates. Among them is the LT4 engine under the hood, which makes 650 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. Gears are shifted with a six-speed manual. The car rides on a custom-built SRIII chassis and features modern technology and custom components all around. 

1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427/435 Convertible

5. 1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427/435 Convertible ($396,000)
This Rally Red mid-year Corvette is impossible to miss. Under the hood it’s just as potent, utilizing a 427 cu.-in. L71 engine cranking out 435 horsepower. The V-8 Turbojet engine is mated to an M21 close-ratio four-speed manual transmission. The painstakingly restored car has won multiple prestigious awards and is fully documented with even the original keys included. 

2020 Corvette First Retail Production Convertible

4. 2020 Corvette First Retail Production Convertible ($400,000)
Next on the list, we jump from a classic version of “America’s Sports Car” to one of the newest -- the first retail production mid-engine Corvette convertible produced by Chevrolet. The 6.2L LT2 V-8 engine is capable of 495 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque utilizing the Z51 Performance Package. That makes it the most powerful production Stingray ever. This particular black Corvette featuring black seats with red trim also incorporates the 3LT package.

One hundred percent of the $400,000 hammer price went to United Way for Southeastern Michigan.

1967 Chevrolet Corvette Custom Convertible

3. 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Custom Convertible ($440,000)

We return to the mid-year Corvette and Chevrolet Performance for the next car on the list. This 1967 model was built by Jeff Hayes Customs and completed in September 2020. The restomod build features an LS3 Hot Cam engine backed up by a 4L70-E four-speed automatic transmission. The black-and-red Corvette features an Art Morrison Sport Chassis, serving as a further example of how the car blends classic looks and style with modern performance. 

1963 Chevrolet Corvette Custom Split-Window Coupe

2. 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Custom Split-Window Coupe ($451,000)
The runner-up position on this year’s list goes to a custom 1963 Corvette that was the recipient of nearly 4,600 hours of work. The rotisserie restoration was performed by Nostalgia Hot Rods. Among the many modern performance elements of the car are a custom-built, 376 cu.-in. LS3 engine making 625 horsepower and a Super Magnum six-speed manual transmission.

The black-on-black, custom Corvette rides on a hand-fabricated chassis, and amazingly, more than 600 hours were devoted to the production of multiple hand-crafted, carbon-fiber components throughout the vehicle. 

1959 Chevrolet Corvette Custom Convertible

1. 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Custom Convertible ($825,000)
Topping this year’s list is another Corvette (no surprise) but the 1959 C1 model might not be the first thought for many when thinking about Corvettes that command nearly a million dollars. This beautiful car, however, has earned every penny. The Pro Touring-style car features Franny Green paint and a Lily interior, along with a variety of modern custom components. Under the hood is a 2020 Corvette LT1, direct-injected V-8 engine backed up by a 4L75-E automatic transmission. The engine is capable of 460 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque. The car utilizes an Art Morrison C7 independent front suspension, fully adjustable ride height and Strange coilovers.

Amazingly, this head-turner has only 150 miles on the build. It’s truly a piece of automotive art.

Top cars from the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction

Snapshot

  • Movie cars and replicas included in auction
  • More than 700 vehicles sold

The Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction has wrapped up for another year, with a wide range of unique metal selling for strong money.

Regarded as one of the world’s most prestigious vehicle auctions, two-stroke minibikes, Bentley convertibles, and just about everything in-between went under the hammer.

Street Machine News Barrett Jackson Grinch 2

32

A 1970 Camaro dubbed ‘The Grinch’ drew plenty of bidder attention. The car was built in 2012 by Ringbrothers, one of America’s premier custom car companies. Another Camaro by the brothers, known as ‘Valkyrja’, won SEMA’s Battle of the Builders in 2019. 

The Grinch is powered by a Wegner Motorsports LS3 producing 602hp. It’s backed by a Bowler five-speed manual transmission and Detroit Speed 9in diff. The rear features a four-link set-up, with chunky Wilwood disc brakes on each corner.

32

Body modifications include fattended flares, extended sills and quarter panels, and extensive smoothing. A custom staggered set of Forgeline 18 and 19-inch centre-lock wheels round out the slick exterior. 

The car was listed for sale online last year with an asking price of USD$229,000 (AU$303,000). Though it’s unclear if the car sold for that price, a bid of USD$385,000 (AU$510,000) won the car at Barrett-Jackson. 

Street Machine News Barrett Jackson Ectomobile

32

This faithful tribute to the Ghostbusters Ectomobile sold for $USD220,000 (AU$291,000). The ‘59 Cadillac ex-hearse is packed with film props and other memorabilia, including four proton packs with their own light and sound systems. 

The Ectomobile runs a 390ci Chevy V8 and three-speed auto, which were rebuilt in 2012.

32

Dual batteries and twin alternators power the electrics, ensuring the car has enough voltage to keep the lights and sirens working even at low speeds.

Street Machine News Barrett Jackson NFT

32

Some items at the auction weren’t even physical. The sale of four NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) commemorated Barrett-Jackson’s auction of several VIN #001 cars, including the first Mustang Mach 1 and Bronco two-door.

Consisting of a one-off video, an illustration and three still images of each car sold, these NFTs use blockchain technology (much like Bitcoin) to stamp the content as a unique digital collectible. The cheapest NFT sold at the auction - based on the Hummer EV - went for US$5000 (AU$6600), while the most expensive was a Mustang Mach 1 at US$30,000 (AU$39,760).

Street Machine News Frank Sinatra Maserati Ghibli 1

32

A 1970 Maserati Ghibli once owned by the legendary Frank Sinatra sold for US$330,000 (AU$437,000). The super-original example has travelled just 21,000 miles from new, with a 4.7-litre OHC V8 paired to a ZF five-speed manual gearbox. 

Sinatra bought the car from his son-in-law Wes Farrell, who was its first owner. He later sold the car to 60s heartthrob George Hamilton. It then made its way into Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas’s car collection. 

Street Machine News Barrett Jackson 300 SEL

32

This stunning numbers-matching Mercedes 300SL roadster earned seven digits, selling for US$1,045,000 (AU$1.38m). 

The meticulously-restored two-seater was delivered to New Orleans in December 1957 by Studebaker/Packard, which was the US's Mercedes importer at the time. 

Street Machine News Barrett Jackson Mc Laren 2

32

A number of modern heroes from the performance scene made it to the auction stage, like this McLaren P1 formerly owned by iconic DJ Deadmau5.

A massive US$1,567,500 (AU$2.07m) bought the McLaren. Packing a twin-turbo V8 bolstered by a 176hp electric motor (which also eliminates turbo lag), the pioneering hypercar is good for 903hp. Just 375 P1s were produced in total between 2013 and 2015.

Street Machine News Hilux SR 5 1

32

This 1986 Hilux sold for US$14,300 (AU$19,000). With a coat of black paint and some KC spotlights, it would be the perfect Marty McFly pickup. 

Street Machine News Dodge Dakota 1

32

The same money netted one buyer an oddball Dodge Dakota convertible, powered by a 3.9-litre V6 and backed by a column-shift four-speed auto.

Street Machine News Mk 4 Supra 1

32

We've already covered the sale price of the auction's Fast & Furious Supra, but for just US$88,000 (AU$116,600) you could have owned this excellent six-speed manual, 2JZ car. It was sold by its second owner with 58,240 miles (93,728km) on the clock.

Barrett-Jackson scores record $48 million in first summer Vegas auction

Barrett-Jackson hit a resounding record result for its Las Vegas Auction, scoring a total of more than $48 million and a 100 percent sell-through for collector vehicles, automobilia, charity sales, even a few NFTs, during a hot weekend in Sin City.

The three-day auction, held June 17-19 as the launch for the new West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, is Barrett-Jackson’s first summer auction in Vegas, where for the first 12 consecutive years sales were held during the fall.  The auction was canceled for 2020 due to the pandemic and rescheduled for 2021 as the company shook up its annual lineup of events.

Heading the auction was the sale of a rare 2015 McLaren P1, a 903-horsepower hybrid hypercar originally owned by popular electronic-music producer Deadmau5 (pronounced “dead mouse”) and driven just 180 miles. The car sold for a spectacular $1,567,500 (all results include auction fees).

STRONG RESULTS AT 2016 BARRETT-JACKSON SCOTTSDALE AUCTION REAFFIRMS COMPANY’S POSITION AS COLLECTOR CAR INDUSTRY LEADER


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. –Feb. 9, 2016
– The successful results reported by Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions®, demonstrates the company’s dominance in the industry and the current state of the collector car hobby. With 1,469 cars selling for over $102 million (unaudited) at a 99-percent sell-through rate and many records set, 2016 Scottsdale Auction was the highest grossing auction during Scottsdale car week and one of the company’s most successful auctionsin its 45-year history.

“Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale was a spectacular success,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Our sell-through for such a large number of collector cars was truly prolific. Some might be tempted to compare our 2015 auction, which included the enormous Pratte Collection, but when the Pratte Collection sales are factored out, our 2016 results proved stronger than what we did in 2015.”

In 2015, rather than holding a stand-alone auction for a private collection like many auction houses have done, Barrett-Jacksondid the unimaginable and added an extra day to includethe 141 Pratte Collection vehicles as a part of the flagship event. Excluding the Pratte Collection results in 2015, Barrett-Jackson saw a more than a 6-percent growth in sales in Scottsdale this year with two fewer cars sold.

Barrett-Jackson’s 45th Anniversary Scottsdale Auction set numerous published auction records for specific automobiles:

“I’m proud to have kicked off our 45th Anniversary year with such a successful event,” added Jackson. “This growth demonstrates Barrett-Jackson’s ability to continually set the bar and serve as the barometer of car collecting. I look forward to the rest of the 2016 auction season, especially as we add the inaugural Northeast Auction to our portfolio.”

Barrett-Jackson

Barrett-Jackson is an American collector car auction company headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona. The auction house specializes in collector vehicles as well as automotive memorabilia (automobilia). Barrett-Jackson was the first collector car auction to be televised[1] and holds events across the United States. Barrett-Jackson is also known for its philanthropic efforts, particularly raising funds through the sale of vehicles for charitable causes[2] at its auctions.

History[edit]

Russ Jackson and Tom Barrett organized the original auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. Jackson met Barrett through an interest in Barrett's 1933 CadillacV-16town car. In 1967, Barrett and Jackson presented a car show called "Fiesta de los Autos Elegantes," a fund-raiser for local charities, including the Scottsdale Library. Then in December, 1971, the two jointly presented a classic car auction, when they auctioned two Mercedes-Benz 770K Phaetons. One of the Phaetons more than tripled the previous auction record, selling for $153,200.[3]

Former U.S. President George W. Bushon the auction block for the sale of the first production 2018 Corvette Carbon 65 (Lot #3007) to benefit the former president's Military Service Initiative.[4]

Jackson died in 1993, and Barrett in 2004. Russ Jackson's son, Craig Jackson, who had worked actively on a daily basis throughout the years and on-site at the event, took over running the company in 1995, the same year the auction began airing live on the Speed television channel. Internet bidding was also introduced at that time.

Starting at the third annual Palm Beach auction in 2005, the show was renamed from "Barrett-Jackson Classic Car Auction" to "Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auctions," followed by the name change in the Scottsdale, Arizona auction in 2006.

Beginning in 2008, a Barrett-Jackson auction was produced in Las Vegas.

From 2010 to 2012 a Barrett-Jackson auction was held in Orange County, California. However, on January 19, 2013, Barrett-Jackson announced it would move from Orange County to Reno, Nevada as part of the city's Hot August Nights event in August 2013. A Barrett-Jackson auction was held in Reno, Nevada until 2015.

On September 26, 2015, Barrett-Jackson announced that for the first time ever, they would have an auction in the Northeast at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut. The inaugural auction took place June 23–25, 2016, with the auction block being located inside the Mohegan Sun Arena.[5]

During the 2018 Scottsdale Auction, where 10 charity vehicles were sold, Barrett-Jackson surpassed $100 million in total funds raised for charity through its platform, reaching just over $102 million. Former U.S. President George W. Bush joined Barrett-Jackson for the sale of the first production 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Carbon 65 Edition (Lot #3007), marking the first appearance by a former president at a Barrett-Jackson event.[6]

Auction[edit]

Although it is billed as a collector car auction, other items are also sold, including trucks, motorcycles, airplanes, engines, boats and other memorabilia. Major car manufacturers, including Ford, General Motors and Toyota, have sold several of their first production vehicles of a given model and generation combination, in charity format.

Celebrities who have attended the event - some putting their own vehicles up for auction - include Justin Bieber, Floyd Mayweather Jr., Sharon Stone, William Shatner, Muhammad Ali, Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony, Michael Bay, Jay Leno, Alice Cooper, Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed, Burt Reynolds, Steven Tyler, Zac Brown Band, David Spade, Tim Allen, Billy Corgan of the former Smashing Pumpkins, Criss Angel, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon, baseball players Reggie Jackson and Randy Johnson, Justin Morneau, DMX, Carroll Shelby, Bill Goldberg, Tony Stewart, and motorcycle customizer Jesse James.[7]

Scottsdale, Arizona[edit]

The company's Scottsdale auction has expanded over its 47-year history and in 2018 ran for nine days, including seven days of vehicle and automobilia auctions, more than 1,700 vehicles, the Opening Night Gala, Family Value Day, Ford Ride 'N Drives, Chevrolet Hot Laps and Dodge Thrill Rides. The auction draws over 325,000 spectators at WestWorld, where the event has been held since 1989. The 2018 Scottsdale also welcomed nearly 5,200 bidders from all 50 states and 13 foreign countries worldwide. The ultimate automotive lifestyle event also provides over 70 food vendors and hundreds of exhibitors.[7]

Broadcasting[edit]

From 1997 through 2013, Barrett-Jackson's auctions were televised by Speed—a relationship dating back to its launch as Speedvision. Its first year featured highlights of the event, but due to popular demand, coverage was expanded into a six-hour live broadcast in 1998, and expanded even further in the years following. The auction's presence on Speedvision continued through its acquisition by Fox Sports and its re-branding as Speed Channel.[14] Following the closure of Speed and its replacement with Fox Sports 1, coverage was spread across several Fox-owned channels, including but not limited to FS1, Fox Sports 2, Fox Business Network, National Geographic Channel, and at the Scottsdale auction in 2013, the over-the-air Fox network as well, from 2013 through 2015.[15][16]

In 2015, broadcast rights to the events were acquired from Fox by Discovery Channel and Velocity (now Motor Trend), beginning with the 2015 Scottsdale auction. Chris Jacobs of Overhaulin' and Ray Evernham of Velocity's AmeriCARna became the main on-air hosts, joined by Rick DeBruhl, Mike Joy, and Steve Magnante as analysts.[17]

From April 2020, broadcast rights were acquired by A+E Networks. The auctions' coverage are spread between FYI and History as well as A+E's non-linear platforms.[18]

Charity work[edit]

A 2017 Ford GT (Lot #3010) raised $2.55 Million for charity at the 2018 Scottsdale Auction, helping Barrett-Jackson reach nearly 102 Million total raised for charity in the company's history.[6]

Charity is considered to be one of the pillars of Barrett-Jackson, dating back to the "Fiesta de los Autos Elegantes," a charity car show put on by Barrett and Jackson before forming the auction company in 1971. During the 2018 Scottsdale Auction, after the sale of 10 charity vehicles, Barrett-Jackson surpassed $100 million in funds raised for charity through to date through the company's renowned platform. Among the highlights from the event were four charity vehicles on "Super Saturday," January 20, including the $1.4 million sale of the first production 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Carbon 65 Edition (Lot #3007). Former U.S. President George W. Bush, the first former president to join Barrett-Jackson on the auction block, was in attendance for the sale with 100 percent of the hammer price benefiting the George W. Bush Presidential Center Military Service Initiative. The company also kicked off its first yearlong charity initiative - "Driven Hearts" - and raised over $350,000 to benefit the American Heart Association during the auction, including the sale of Carolyn and Craig Jackson's personal 1988 Corvette 35th Anniversary Edition (Lot #3008). Capping off the 10 charity vehicles was a 2017 Ford GT (Lot #3010), the first current model Ford GT available at public auction, which raised $2.55 million with 100 percent of the sale benefiting The Autism Society of North Carolina's IGNITE Program and the Autism Alliance of Michigan. The 10 charity vehicles at the 2018 Scottsdale Auction raised $6.21 million for charity, bringing Barrett-Jackson to just over $102 million total raised for charity throughout the company's history.[19]

Driven Hearts

Carolyn and Craig Jackson's 1988 Chevrolet Corvette 35th Anniversary Edition (Lot #3008) raised $350,000 for the American Heart Association as part of the company's Driven Hearts initiative at the 2018 Scottsdale Auction.[19]

On January 9, 2018 at Barrett-Jackson's 2018 Scottsdale Media Day, the company announced details of its first ever yearlong charity initiative. The Driven Hearts initiative, benefiting the American Heart Association (AHA), kicked off at the 2018 Scottsdale Auction and will help raise money and bring awareness to promote heart health throughout the year. In addition to the sale of Carolyn and Craig Jackson's 1988 Corvette 35th Anniversary Edition, the initiative includes the first state-issued Barrett-Jackson themed license plate through the Arizona Department of Transportation, Motor Vehicle Division (ADOT-MVD). The plates cost $25, with $17 of each sale benefiting AHA. Additional aspects of the Driven Hearts initiative include Barrett-Jackson’s partnership with Hotels for Hope, which enables fans traveling to Barrett-Jackson events to book rooms through Barrett-Jackson.com, with a portion of every actualized hotel room night booked going to the AHA. Barrett-Jackson drivers will also be sporting the “Driven Hearts” logo on their shirts, and auction attendees will notice the acronym “FAST” (Face drooping, Arm weakness, Speech difficulty, Time to call 911) around the Barrett-Jackson event sites, as a way of bringing attention to the warning signs of stroke.[20]

Some of the charities that have benefited from Barrett-Jackson's efforts are The ChildHelp Foundation, TGen, The Darrell Gwynn Foundation, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, The National MS Foundation, The Carroll Shelby Children’s Foundation, The Hendrick Marrow Foundation, MLB Charities, The Boy Scouts of America, the EAA Young Eagles, St. Jude's, and The Bob Woodward Foundation.

In 2018, Barrett-Jackson sold over 1,100 pieces of automobilia (automotive-related memorabilia) for more than $3.7 million, including a full-size transportation-themed carousel manufactured by Wilhelm Hennecke of Germany in 1957 for $557,750.[21]

Lawsuits[edit]

At the 2007 Scottsdale auction, after the last authenticated Ramchargers (a former drag racing team that had been staffed by Chrysler Corporation employees) race car had been sold for $300,000, owner David Clabuesch accused the auction company of ending the auctioneering prematurely, resulting in a lower than expected sale price. After the sale, Barrett-Jackson sued Clabuesch for "outrageous and defamatory actions," including chaining the car's wheels at the auction tent and putting up a sign calling its sale "void".[33] On January 10, 2008, Barrett-Jackson announced a settlement had been reached three days earlier. In the settlement, Clabuesch exonerated Barrett-Jackson of all allegations of wrongdoing in relation to a situation that occurred at the company’s Scottsdale event in January 2007.[34]

2007 Sports Car Market dispute[edit]

During the 2007 Scottsdale auction, Keith Martin, editor of Sports Car Market and a former member of Speed Channel's on-air commentary team for the auction, was ejected from the auction by Barrett-Jackson. At the time Martin was ejected, Sports Car Market had run unfavorable editorials about the state of the collector car industry and whether some cars were worth the high dollars being spent on them but not mentioning Barrett-Jackson or any other firm by name.[35] During the auction Martin allegedly made comments about company business practices and the quality of cars sold; according to Barrett-Jackson, he told people in the media center to leave B-J and attend the auction of a competitor. He was also dropped as a SPEED TV network commentator, at the request of Barrett-Jackson.[36][37]
