Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Sale Offers Staluppi Collection
Barrett-Jackson’s 16th Annual Palm Beach Auction, set for April 12-15, at the South Florida Fairgrounds will offer one of the most notable private collections on the East Coast, when the John Staluppi Cars of Dreams Collection crosses the block. More than 140 vehicles currently housed in his North Palm Beach Cars of Dreams Museum will be auctioned, all at No Reserve.
The collection features a diverse group of American cars — predominantly convertibles — from the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s, along with custom vehicles and Resto-Mods. A few of the crown jewels from the Cars of Dreams Collection are a 1958 Dual Ghia Convertible, a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS Indy Pace Car, a 1965 Corvette Stingray Convertible, and a ’63 Volkswagen Beetle, better known as “Herbie,” which was used in several Walt Disney films.
“John Staluppi and his wife, Jeanette, are an important part of the Barrett-Jackson family, and we are honored he chose us to offer his Cars of Dreams Collection,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Over the years, John has amassed some of the best examples of cars from the golden era of automobiles, and this offering will provide a special opportunity to own unique and meticulously cared for pieces of automotive history.”
