Barrett-Jackson hosted more than 55,000 attendees during the three-day auction at the Americraft Expo Center at the South Florida Fairgrounds. The 2010 Palm Beach event was dedicated to the memory of Nellie Jackson, the auction company’s matriarch who passed away in February at age 90.
The all No Reserve auction had bidders vying for more than 400 cars on a line-up that included the 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Special Edition that sold for $297,000, the Shadrach “Platt & Payne Signature Edition” Mustang that fetched $190,000 with all proceeds benefiting the Darrell Gwynn Foundation, and the only 1965 Boyd Coddington roadster that went to the winning bidder for $184,800.
“This year’s Palm Beach auction was another testament to the vibrancy of the collector car market,” said Craig Jackson, Chairman/CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “We had an outstanding event that was attended by many of our best customers along with a strong showing of new bidders and consignors. The average hammer price per car was up over last year, and we’re thrilled to have helped raise $60,000 for the Darrell Gwynn Foundation during our opening night party, as well as over $560,000 for other deserving charities during our auction.”
In addition to the auction, the full week of activities included a Road Rally, which featured approximately 75 vehicles, the 3rd annual Cruise-In at Wayne Akers Ford that showcased over 150 collector and custom cars, a Barrett-Jackson exhibit at City Place, and a pre-auction charity reception benefiting the Darrell Gwynn Foundation hosted by John and Jeanette Staluppi at their Cars of Dreams museum.
