Sales At Classic Car Auction Increase


    While the S&P was dropping during the two weeks of 2015 leading up to the Scottsdale, AZ, ‘Collector Car Auction Week,’ the auction saw almost 3,000 cars offered with 86 per cent sold among the six auctions, an 18 per cent increase over 2014 numbers for a record $293 million in one very frenzied week of action, says Peter Volny, a classic car collector and regular attendee of the show. In ‘Another Year, Another Record’ on the Private Wealth Canada website, he says the top sellers of the Barrett-Jackson auction were a 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 Super Snake at $5.1 million, a 1950 GM Futurliner Parade of Progress Tour Bus for $4 million, and a 1954 Pontiac Bonneville Special Motorama Concept Car at $3.3 million.
