The Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction 2014 was held April 11-14 at the South Florida Fairgrounds in Palm Beach, Florida, resulting in more than $25 million in gross sales. The total from the 12th annual auction was the highest in the history of Barrett-Jackson’s Palm Beach auctions.
“Each year, Palm Beach continues to expand its impact, bringing better cars, more fans and growth. We have enjoyed the years here and this year was a stellar showing, which continues the explosive start we had in Scottsdale,” said Craig Jackson, Chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “This week, we had great entertainment, saw some incredible cars and sold seven special vehicles with all proceeds benefitting the designated charities. We have a strong partnership with Palm Beach and the South Florida Fairgrounds and this week demonstrated that relationship.”
Always a focus at a Barrett-Jackson sale, more than $2.35 million was raised for charity over the three-day auction. Ford sold the 2013 Ford Mustang Fastback, which appeared in “Need for Speed” for $300,000. General Motors sold the first retail production vehicles of the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Coupe for $500,000 and the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Coupe for $1,000,000. The charities that benefit from these sales include: Rebuilding Together, the Darrell Gwynn Foundation, AARP Drive to End Hunger, Henry Ford Health System, Karmanos Cancer Institute, The Cancer Research Fund at TGEN, and the Boy Scouts of America Occoneechee Council.
The top non-charity result at the 2014 Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction went to the 1935 Packard 1207 V12 Convertible Coupe bodied by Dietrich that sold for $330,000, followed by the 2005 Ford GT Coupe that made $242,000 and the 1946 Ford Sportsman Convertible at $209,000.
