Barrett-Jackson is returning to Texas next month for its second annual Houston Auction. Held at the NRG Center from October 20 to 22, the event will offer Hot Laps and Thrill Rides from Cadillac, Chevrolet, Dodge and Toyota, interactive sponsor and exhibitor displays, and an Opening Night Party with live music for Tier 1 bidders, consignors and VIPS. The auction itself will feature approximately 500 cars crossing the block at no reserve — a Barrett-Jackson trademark.
“This year’s Houston Auction will be the perfect bookend to a year of record-setting events,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “We kicked off the year with the most successful auction in our 50-year history in Scottsdale and continued to host record-breaking events throughout 2022 in Palm Beach and Las Vegas. Houston will continue our tradition of showcasing a diverse docket with collectible vehicles for young enthusiasts and seasoned collectors alike.”
A star of the Houston 2022 auction is a nearly new 2019 Ford GT painted Liquid Grey Tri-Coat with Ingot Silver Stripes. Ordered with $66,750 in options, the hypercar includes 20-inch gloss black wheels with contrasting silver calipers, the 200A equipment group, exterior gloss carbon fiber package and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The GT has covered a mere 551 miles and is being offered without reserve.
On the resto-mod front, Barrett-Jackson is selling a no-reserve 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Custom Convertible. Built by Jeff Hayes Customs, the Corvette is now powered by a 540-hp GM LS3 V8 engine backed by a 4L70E automatic transmission. Finished in silver-blue paint with an Oyster interior, this resto-mod rides on a new Art Morrison chassis with Wilwood disc brakes, custom Schott wheels and custom whitewall tires at each corner.
