The Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach 2019 auction was held April 11-13 at the South Florida Fairgrounds in Palm Beach, Florida, resulting in $30.2 million in total sales. More than 630 vehicles sold at Barrett-Jackson’s 17th annual Palm Beach sale, in addition to 258 pieces of automobilia for nearly $500,000 and $550,000 was raised through the sale of charity vehicles.
“This year’s Palm Beach Auction was extraordinary, fueled by the momentum we ignited in Scottsdale,” said Craig Jackson, Chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “The atmosphere on Super Saturday in Palm Beach felt like it did back in Scottsdale, with excitement fueled in part by the sale of dozens of world-class Resto-Mods. We also enjoyed several inspiring moments throughout our largest three-day Florida auction, including the sale of three vehicles that raised $550,000 for charity.”
The top result at Barrett-Jackson’s 2019 Palm Beach sale went to the 1947 Buick Super 8 Custom Convertible (Lot #735) sold for $412,500, followed by the 2012 Lexus LFA (Lot #742) sold for $352,000 and the 2018 McLaren 720s (Lot #743) sold for $324,500.
The Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach 2019 auction also continued the trend of demand for 1980s and 1990s performance cars that have been a rising segment due to the increased presence of Gen-X and millennial buyers.
