Resto-Mods Shine At Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach

Time and time again, we get proof that resto-mods are in a major second coming in the modern collector scene, and this latest Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction is another piece of proof!

During the April 11-13, 2019 auction, a total of 632 vehicles sold for over $30.18 million with an astonishing 98.9 percent sell-through-rate.

“This year’s Palm Beach Auction was extraordinary, fueled by the momentum we ignited in Scottsdale,” said Craig Jackson, Chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “The atmosphere on Super Saturday in Palm Beach felt like it did back in Scottsdale, with excitement fueled in part by the sale of dozens of world-class Resto-Mods. We also enjoyed several inspiring moments throughout our largest three-day Florida auction, including the sale of three vehicles that raised $550,000 for charity. We set a land-speed record in Scottsdale and turned around again and did it in Palm Beach. Our 17th Annual Barrett-Jackson Auction was one for the history books.”

“Barrett-Jackson is the only auction to offer such an eclectic and exciting mix of collectible vehicles,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “From a re-creation of the Ford LTD from the film ‘National Lampoon’s Vacation’ (Lot #375) to a world-class 1947 Buick Super 8 Resto-Mod (Lot #735), the diversity of our dockets appeals to veteran collectors, as well as younger buyers. This rising generation of collectors has been watching our auctions on television, igniting a new wave of passion for this incredible hobby. We look forward to adding to our momentum again during our Northeast Auction at Mohegan Sun this June.”
