140 cars including Herbie and Indy pace car for sale without reserve
John Staluppi’s remarkable collection is to be offered by Barrett-Jackson at its Cars of Dreams Collection, South Florida, in April
Barrett-Jackson will sell over 140 cars from John Staluppi’s Cars of Dreams Collection without reserve during the 16th Annual Palm Beach Auction.
The sale, which will take place at the South Florida Fairgrounds from April 12-15, will feature one of the most notable private car collections from America’s East Coast, with convertibles from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s set to headline. Custom vehicles and restomods will also be included.
Staluppi is renowned for his network of car dealerships and collection of superyachts. Last month he bought a 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Carbon 65 Edition for $1.4 million. The auction, which was presided over by former US President George W Bush, was held for charity, and the Corvette is among a number of charitable lots Staluppi has bought.
Notable lots in the forthcoming Barrett-Jackson auction include a 1958 Dual Ghia Convertible, ’69 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS Indy pace car and ’65 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible, as well as a ’63 Volkswagen Beetle better known as ‘Herbie’ that was used in several of the iconic Walt Disney films.
‘Over the years, John has amassed some of the best examples of cars from the golden era of automobiles. This offering will provide a special opportunity to own unique and meticulously cared-for pieces of automotive history,’ said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson.
Staluppi added: ‘[My wife] Jeanette and I are extremely excited to be working alongside Craig Jackson, Steve Davis and the entire team of Barrett-Jackson.
‘We have been part of the auctions for many years, and we believe Barrett-Jackson to be the premier collector car auction company in the industry. Barrett-Jackson is a well run organisation. Not only is it a car auction, it is an event for the whole family – our children are also car collectors. We look forward to offering our collection in April at Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach.’
