Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Highlights

A special Saturday edition! There are so many unbelievable cars coming up for auction that we’ve decided to push auction results to weekends just to leave us more time to feature individual cars.

Barrett-Jackson held their second sale of the year last weekend in Palm Beach, Florida. This might be the most “up-to-the-minute” auction recap we’ve ever done. The top sale was our featured Spyker C8 that sold for $220,000.

Other top sales included a 1959 Porsche 356A Convertible D with less than 500 miles on it since restoration. It sold for $148,500.

There were many (and I mean many) late-model imports at this sale. There were a slew of 5-10 year-old Porsches, Jaguars and Mercedes-Benz SLs. And in addition to the Spyker, there were a number of other exotics – Aston Martins, Bentleys, Ferraris and this 2008 Rossion Q1 that sold for $79,200.

As is the case at a Barrett-Jackson auction, there were muscle cars galore. Among the best was this 1970 Boss 302 Mustang Fastback in bright Calypso Coral paint. It sold for $110,000.

Of our other feature cars, the 1947 Standard Eight sold for $10,450 and the 2003 Commemorative Edition Z06 Corvette brought and impressive $90,200. Yes, there were a handful of $100,000+ cars, but there were some steals to be had as well. Chief among them was this 1959 Edsel Corsair:

It would appear to be a survivor (never restored) and it could have been yours for $11,550. That is a steal. And finally, the only true bizarro-rarity was this 2006 GDT Speedster. It’s a one-of-one engineering and styling exercise was built on a 1994 Corvette. And I’m sure the build cost exceeded the sale price of $39,600 (which is about $14,000 more than it brought when it was sold by Auctions America at their 2011 Auburn, Indiana auction).
