Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Totals $46.6m

Barrett-Jackson’s annual Palm Beach sale returned to the South Florida Fairgrounds from April 18-20 — selling 614 vehicles for a total of $45.7m. In addition, 348 pieces of automobilia also sold, pushing the final total to $46.6m.

“For over 20 years, Palm Beach has been a perfect destination to host our ultimate automotive lifestyle event,” said Craig Jackson, Chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “This year’s Palm Beach Auction was among our best ever, driven by one of the most diverse dockets in our history. We kicked off our three-day auction with our amazing Opening Night Party, which has become one of the most anticipated events of the year in South Florida. We continued to rev up the excitement on Thursday with the worldwide unveiling of the all-new 2024 Shelby Super Snake on our auction block. The passion and energy of our guests was tangible throughout the auction. We’re excited to build on our momentum as we head to our Scottsdale Fall Auction.”

The top vehicles sold during the 2024 Palm Beach Auction included:

This year’s event included seven private collections. Renowned collector and philanthropist John Staluppi’s Cars of Dreams Collection brought 11 collectible vehicles, including a 1954 Buick Skylark (Lot #684.2) that sold for $148,500 and a 1958 Buick Special Convertible (Lot #376) that sold for $126,500. The Washer Collection included a 1969 Dodge Charger “Joe Dirt Daytona” movie car (Lot #749.1), which sold for $330,000, while a 1970 Plymouth Superbird (Lot #730) from the Prestige Collection brought in $220,000.

“We built this year’s Palm Beach Auction with a spectacular collection of vehicles,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “Our bidders responded overwhelmingly with numerous six-figure sales on both Friday and Saturday. From our top-selling Ford GTs to a whimsical 1964 Amphicar (Lot #376.1) and Burt Reynold’s 1977 Firebird (Lot #707), we delivered something for everyone. We look forward to coming together again this fall in Scottsdale.”
