Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2015
January 10, 2015 @ 1:00 am - January 18, 2015 @ 1:00 am MST
The 44th Annual Scottsdale Auction will take place January 10-18, 2015, at the WestWorld of Scottsdale facility.
The highlight of the BARRETT-JACKSON SCOTTSDALE AUCTION will be Ron Pratte’s world-renowned collection of 142 cars, trucks and motorcycles, as well as more than 1,500 pieces of automotive memorabilia. The collection includes the only remaining 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 Super Snake and a striking 1954 Pontiac Bonneville Special Motorama concept car, one of only two designed by GM styling icon Harley Earl. The collection’s very rare 1950 GM Futurliner (one of only 12 ever built) will be auctioned off with 100-percent of the proceeds benefiting the Armed Forces Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to supporting and advocating for active-duty military personnel, National Guardsmen, Reservists, military families and veterans.
Another highlight of the Scottsdale auction block is NASCAR championship driver Jeff Gordon’s fully restored 1999 No. 24 Pepsi Chevrolet Monte Carlo. The historic stock car was rebuilt to “as new” condition by Ray Evernham, and last used by Gordon and his then crew chief Evernham in their final season competing together. Now on display in the Barrett-Jackson Collection Showroom in Scottsdale after its multi-city unveiling, the car is scheduled to cross the block during the Scottsdale auction with proceeds going to benefit The Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation.
Other highlights of BARRETT-JACKSON SCOTTSDALE include the 1955 Chevy used in the counterculture-era cult classic film “Two-Lane Blacktop” starring James Taylor and The Beach Boys’ Dennis Wilson, and a 1952 Woodill Wildfire, the first complete fiberglass car ever available and the star of three films: “Johnny Dark” with Tony Curtis; “Written on the Wind” with Rock Hudson; and “Knock on Wood” with Danny Kaye. Viewers can also expect an incredible line-up of customs and Hot Rods, including a 1971 De Tomaso Pantera Ringbrothers Custom created in collaboration with Nike, and Jimmy Shine’s 1934 Ford Custom Pickup, considered by many to be a “turning point” Hot Rod of the 20th century.
The Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale will be broadcast on Velocity and Discovery during 36 hours of live, high-definition TV coverage from Tuesday through Sunday, Jan. 13-18.
