FANTASTIC DAY IN FLORIDA: Super Saturday Celebrated With Million-Dollar Ford GTs, John Staluppi’s Cars Of Dreams, and $1,350,000 For Charity
LOT #725 — 2020 FORD GT CARBON SERIES — SOLD! $1,540,000


A 2020 Ford GT Carbon Series made waves and ignited an enthusiastic crowd when the gavel fell on the $1,540,000 sale, which made for a great Super Saturday at the 2022 Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction!

A 2018 Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition from John Staluppi’s Cars of Dreams collection earned the second-highest sale of the event with $1,430,000.

“This is the most successful Palm Beach Auction to date” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “It was an incredible event in all aspects, and we couldn’t be happier about our return to Florida.”

The last of the more than 600 No Reserve collector vehicles from the three-day sale made their way across the stage today, including vehicles from a trio of world-class collections: John Staluppi’s Cars of Dreams, the George Shinn Collection and the American Muscle Car Museum Collection (AMCM).

In addition to the Ford GT, top sellers from the Cars of Dreams included the 1958 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz custom convertible for $258,500 and the 1957 Desoto Adventurer for $242,000.

Top sellers from the George Shinn Collection included a 1957 Chevrolet Nomad custom wagon for $189,200, a 1960 Chevrolet Corvette custom convertible for $187,000, and a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air custom convertible for $183,700.

The stars from the AMCM collection were the 1968 Yenko Camaro, which skyrocketed to $533,500; a 1958 Chevrolet Impala convertible for $275,000; and a 1991 Chevrolet Silverado Custom Dale Earnhardt Edition pickup for $165,000.

The audience in the auction arena fueled the excitement on several occasions with rousing standing ovations, the first of which was when a 1967 Chevrolet Chevy II Nova SS custom coupe rumbled onto the block – and then sold for $297,000.

The event realized several auction world record sales today, including a 1961 Chevrolet Corvette custom convertible for $467,500. Additional top sales included a 1960 Chevrolet Corvette custom convertible for $550,000; and a 1962 Chevrolet Corvette custom topless roadster named “Elegance” for $385,000.

The spotlight was on two Super Saturday charity sales: the VIN 001 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor, with 100% of its $350,000 hammer price benefiting the National Forest Foundation and Outward Bound, and the First Retail Production Convertible 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, with 100% of its $1 million hammer price benefiting Thurgood Marshall College Fund. With unwavering generosity, the Corvette marked businessman and NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick’s second charity car purchase during the 2022 Palm Beach event, his first being the pair of cars benefiting Samaritan’s Purse for Ukraine crisis relief.

The morning’s Automobilia Auction saw some impressive sales, most notably, John Staluppi’s Cars of Dreams large and elaborate model train set that was sold by Private Treaty for $97,900. On the block, a spectacular “Transformers” Bumblebee statue from the collection sold for $32,200.

The gates opened today with a visit from the Ford Initiative, which brought 40 young people, ages 16-26, from local high schools and technical schools to the Palm Beach Auction for some hot laps on the Barrett-Jackson Performance Track. Afterwards, they toured the auction site to inspire them to join the automotive industry and collector car community.

Making a special appearance was big screen legend Sylvester Stallone and UFC Hall of Famer Rich “Ace” Franklin, who was on the block to see his 1967 custom Camaro sell for $214,500.

Barrett-Jackson is very grateful for the tremendous enthusiasm received from our fantastic bidders, consignors, sponsors and exhibitors, as well as fans from all across the country — and especially the South Florida community. We look forward to seeing everyone at our Las Vegas Auction in the Convention Center West Hall this June.
