The action is underway at Barrett-Jackson’s 2014 Scottsdale Auction and all indications are that the event is off to a good start. With nearly 3,200 registered bidders expected to join in on the action, early reports indicate that attendance was up 25 percent from last year’s first day mark.
Car sales hit the $4.4 million mark for the 151 vehicles that crossed the block. There was an additional $212,000 generated through the sales of automobilia on day one.
Fords topped the first day sales with two blue oval products busting through the $100,000 mark. Top sellers included a 2013 Mustang that was sold for charity. The 650hp Mothers Ford Mustang RTR Spec 3 made its debut in the Ford booth at the 2012 SEMA Show. After touring the country to attend countless events, it is now being auctioned with proceeds to support a cause that has great meaning to the Mothers family as well as the Jackson's: the Barrett-Jackson Cancer Research Fund at TGen. The bidding stopped at $110,000.
The Tuesday Top Five included a 1969 Ford Talladega Fastback ($110,000), a 1958 Impala Custom two-door ($82,000), a 1967 Chevelle SS convertible ($77,000) and a 1967 Camaro sold to benefit Phoenix Children’s Hospital ($75,000).
