A total of 442 vehicles brought $23.5-plus million, 349 pieces of automobilia sold for more than $634,000 and $845,000 was raised from three charity cars during the first Barrett Jackson Fall Auction at WestWorld of Scottsdale, October 22–24.

The bidders, consignors and invited guests who attended thanked Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, for the health and safety measures the Scottsdale-based company took in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. An online and global TV audience also experienced the sale of the 100-percent No Reserve docket. Event sales totaled $24.9-plus million.

“We’re so thankful for the bidders, consignors and guests who joined us for our first in-person event since January,” says Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO. “Working closely with the city of Scottsdale and officials from WestWorld, we demonstrated that we could host live events and maintain the highest standards of safety. We’re excited to carry this excitement into our January 2021 Scottsdale Auction.”


The event’s top seller was a 2018 Ford GT (Lot #748), which attracted $1.21 million, one of 27 world auction records set, according to Barrett-Jackson. Completing the top six: a 2012 Lexus LFA (#749), $440,000; 2005 Ford GT (#725), $302,500; 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Custom Coupe (#763.1), $286,000; 2017 Dodge Viper ACR (#757), $229,900; and a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Split-Window Custom Coupe (#753), $214,500.

“We proved that it’s not only possible to produce a live event where guests feel safe but that the collector car community remains vibrant and the market is resilient and healthy,” says Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson.

One of the three charity vehicles was Ken Block’s 2016 Focus RS RX (#3000) which raised $200,000 to benefit Team Rubicon; the world-champion rally cross driver assisted on the block. In addition, a 2019 Ford F-350 Lariat Custom Pickup (#3001) sold for $275,000, benefiting Building Homes for Heroes and a 2020 Chevrolet Corvette (#3002), $370,000, for Heartstrings Foundation.
