Collections Lead Barrett-Jackson 2022 Palm Beach Auction April 7–9

Three superlative vintage car collections head the docket during the 2022 Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction, April 7–9, at the South Florida Fairgrounds. The 18th event in Florida returns after a two-year hiatus as a result of the pandemic.

All will be offered at No Reserve.
