If you love performance cars, this is the collection to watch!

The renowned William “Chip” Watkins collection featured 16 cars, all heading to the South Florida Fairgrounds in a few days. During the 17th Annual Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction, April 11-13, 2019, these cars will be auctioned off with no reserve, and they represent vehicles that span over seven decades in the world of automotive performance. 

In the collection, expect to see cars come under the hammer like a stunning 1958 Chevrolet Corvette Custom Roadster (Lot #748) powered by an LS2 engine, riding on a Corvette C4 polished suspension with coilovers, power disc brakes, and a Dana 44 rear end. There’s also a one-of-one 2017 Dodge Viper ACR (Lot #722), a 1969 Shelby GT500 (Lot #689) that has been in the Watkins family its entire life, and a 1974 Pantera GTS, to name a few.

“From classic Resto-Mods  to  low-mileage future classics, the Chip Watkins Collection represents an enviable diversity of performance vehicles,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Not only does the collection represent a seven-decade span of makes and models, but the quality of each vehicle is unsurpassed as well. For anybody looking to add an incredible vehicle to their garage, the Chip Watkins Collection should be on the must-see list during our Palm Beach Auction.”

This is an extremely diverse collection, and will make anyone who is a power and performance enthusiast drool. From Euro cars to American muscle, these are some of the best examples of their class. 

“There is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to car collecting,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “That’s why we’ve always built dockets with as much diversity as possible. The Chip Watkins Collection is a natural expansion of our docket, spanning 70 years of some of the finest examples of collector vehicles. Each one is a tribute to their heritage and impact on the automotive culture.”
