Top sellers included a 1929 Hamilton Metalplane H-47 for $671,000 and a 1964 Shelby Cobra that brought $478,500.
A 1964 Shelby Cobra was the top selling car. It brought $478,500.
The event featured nearly 1,200 collector vehicles all for sale at No Reserve and nearly 40 hours of live, high-definition TV coverage on SPEED.
The weather in Arizona had little impact on the auction, as no cars were damaged and all vehicles crossed the block as scheduled. Despite the inclement weather of significant rain and wind and the associated challenges, more than 180,000 people braved the elements to attend the automotive lifestyle event.
This 1929 Metaplane was the top seller at Barrett-Jackson's
Scottsdale sale, selling for $671,000.
"Even with the worst weather the Phoenix area has seen in decades, buyers, sellers and visitors from across the country enjoyed another incredible Scottsdale event," said Craig Jackson, Chairman/CEO of Barrett-Jackson.
