The entire collection is available without reserve!
As the date for the Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction gets closer and closer, the news about the event keeps getting better. The event organizers just announced the consignment of the Vault Portfolio collection. Within this collection is 48 vehicles, and they’re crossing the auction block with no reserve! Of the 48 in the collection, the first 14 from the Vault Portfolio will be open to bidders at the 4th Annual Northeast Auction at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, June 26-29.
“Hot rods and customs have established themselves as top collectibles over the past several years,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “The Vault Portfolio is an outstanding collection featuring some of the finest professionally built hot rods and classic customs ever created and stands as a testament to the spirit of hot-rodding. We’re thrilled to kick off the sale of this incredible collection of hot rods and classics at our Northeast Auction.”
In the collection are a mix of cars anyone would be proud to take home. A 1932 Ford Model 18 (Lot #721) powered by a 383 cubic-inch V8 engine, touting 425 horsepower pushed through a TREMEC 5-speed manual transmission is a great example of a hot rod restomod. A Brilliant White 1937 Ford Custom (Lot # 632.1) powered by a Chevrolet 350ci V8 engine and sitting on custom Panther wheels, equipped with Wilwood disc brakes and powered by a Chevrolet Vortec 350 cubic inch engine is another example that fits the bill, as well as a 1932 Ford Hi-Boy Custom Roadster (Lot #635.1) powered by a GM 350ci crate engine running power through a T350 transmission to the 9” Currie rear end, wearing a polished aluminum housing - this example is more ‘restored’ than a restomod, and it’s done up very tastefully!
After the initial 14 go up for grabs, the remaining vehicles will go under the hammer at the 13th Annual Las Vegas Auction, October 3-5, 2019, and the 49th Annual Scottsdale Auction, January 11-19, 2020.
