A 2018 Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition with fewer than 15 miles on the odometer will lead hundreds of collector cars and automobilia on the docket for the 18th Annual Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction, April 16–18, at the South Florida Fairgrounds.

“We’re building on the incredible energy we created in Scottsdale during our most successful auction ever with our annual Palm Beach Auction,” says Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Scottsdale-based Barrett-Jackson, which also produces annual auctions in Scottsdale, Arizona; Mohegan Sun in Connecticut; and Las Vegas, Nevada.

“We’re honored to share the live auction excitement in Palm Beach on FYI and HISTORY as they join us, for the first time, as our broadcasting partners on our ‘Road to 50,’” he adds, referring to the company’s half-century anniversary in 2021.


Offered at No Reserve, the ’67 Heritage Edition is finished in Race Red with white racing stripes and features the exclusive No. 1 race-number graphics honoring the 1967 Le Mans-winning GT40 Mark IV race car driven by racing greats Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt.

Also on the block are two C2 Corvettes built by Jeff Hayes Customs: a 1963 Chevrolet Custom Corvette Split-Window and 1966 Corvette Custom Convertible. Each ’Vette rides on an Art Morrison chassis and is powered by an LS3 Hot Cam engine producing 540 horsepower.

In addition, a 1970 Dodge HEMI Challenger R/T will also be featured, with a 426-cid Hemi V-8 paired to a 4-speed manual transmission.

“Barrett-Jackson continues to surpass all expectations in the market and set the gold standard for No Reserve auctions,” says Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “We’re grateful to each consignor, bidder and spectator who have joined us on this 49-year journey. And, I’m elated to return to Palm Beach in April as we offer even more of the best Resto-Mods, classic muscle, supercars and top-tier enthusiast vehicles.”

Collections include the Auto Sport Collection, led by a Lyndale Blue 1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427/435 convertible and a custom 1950 Chevrolet Woody Wagon with 6,000-plus build hours. The wagon is powered by a fuel-injected 502-cid V-8 backed by an automatic transmission and features Wilwood disc brakes, air-conditioning and heat and Budnik Gasser wheels.
