This is an exciting year for collectors who like some muscle!
Barrett-Jackson is such an amazing source to watch for collector trends, and this year seems to be the year of the resto-mod, as well as modern American classics. As we’ve seen throughout their previous auctions of 2019, it’s these exact vehicles that are triggering bidding wars. When the famous auction company heads to Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, from June 26-29, 2019, it will include professionally built resto-mods, modern muscle and sports car, 1980s and 1990s performance vehicles, and tons more - many luted at No Reserve.
“There is no doubt that the excitement felt in Scottsdale and Palm Beach will continue in the Northeast,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “This year has been a year of record sales and massive growth in developing segments of the collector car market. We are thrilled to be a catalyst of these market developments while simultaneously delivering on the segments of the market that continue to be as strong as ever.”
An auction highlight is the final production seventh-generation Chevrolet Z06 Corvette - with the platform changing to mid-engine for the 8th-generation, this collectible is a car of a lifetime. All of the proceeds from sell with benefit Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
“We’re honored to be able to help great companies like GM raise money and awareness for critical organizations like the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “It’s a great privilege to be a part of this historic moment, selling the last Corvette of the current generation in support of our first responders and military heroes. You simply won’t find a more compassionate group of people than those inside the collector car community.”
During the four day long auction, event goers get to experience Ford Hot Laps and Dodge Thrill Rides on a massive 110,000-square-foot track. There’s also a DIY Pavilion that showcases live builds from the Factory Five, and product demonstrations.
