Classic Car Auctions Arizona
Each year Arizona classic car auctions become the most important events for car collectors and car lovers that make time in their busy schedules. These events are organized by the most important auction companies in America. All of these events are known by classic car collectors and admirers as “the Arizona Auction Week”.
In 2010, the 39th edition of the Barrett-Jackson is organized at WestWorld in Scottsdale. This Arizona classic car auction displayed more than 1200 classic vehicles and even a 1929 Metalplane, the only one that is complete from the 29 built. People could see not only amazing cars, but also have a taste of the past automotive lifestyle.
The classic cars offered by the Barrett-Jackson auction were muscle cars, Cobras and some celebrity cars as well, such as Sonny and Cher’s 1966 Ford Mustang convertible, a 1930 Ford Model A that was owned by John Dillinger, a 1971 Plymouth Hemi Baracuda of Beach Boys and a 1958 Chevrolet Impala owned by Buddy Holly.
The cars auctioned were amazing or simply historic classic cars, such as a 1966 Mercury Comet “fliptop” funny car that is the only model that survived (only five of these cars were ever built). Other classic cars that were on sale at this auction were a 1926 Hudson Speedster “Grapes of Wrath”, a 1975 Bonneville Boss hauler or a 1952 Watson Roadster.
Another 2010 Arizona classic car auction was organized by Russo and Steele and it celebrated its 10th anniversary in Scottsdale. The most intriguing car offered by this auction was the 1948 Trucker 48 convertible. This car was manufactured in secret for Preston Tucker’s wife. The event listed also a 1960 Chrysler 300F “NASCAR Special” and a 1968 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda that was driven by the famed Sox &Martin team.
The 11th Automobiles of Arizona auction was organized by RM in 2010 and it was another successful Arizona classic car auction.
