Barrett-Jackson’s second “Online Only” auction of 2020 followed closely the substance and Proxibid-based format of the first one, seven and a half weeks ago including the prevalence of reserves on most of the cars.
The results were similar if slightly lower, although if B-J had found a home for its headline lot, a 2018 Ford GT that was bid to $795,000, all that would have changed. The total high bids on no-sale cars were $4.3 million, $1.3 million more than the sale total including commissions.
Although the Proxibid-based format was similar, the documentation, descriptions and photos for July 10 were noticeably improved, making it easier for both bidders and lurkers like me to do better evaluations from the online content.
Even with closings scheduled every four minutes and anti-sniping extensions of only a minute the progress of watching the entire sale is mind-numbing. It works, but it’s snooze-inducing.
There are two advantages for the auction company:
- The overhead is low;
- The cars are scattered all over the country with no pre-auction handling;
- There are no on-site expenses for security or staff;
- Although, for an event-oriented business like Barrett-Jackson, there is no spectator gate, nor any vendor/exhibitor revenue.
- The process is easily repeated, also with low overhead.
B-J has no more online only auctions scheduled, turning its attention to its upcoming live auction at Las Vegas September 10-12.

Descriptions are sorted by lot number.
Lot # 105 1996 Dodge Viper GTS Coupe; S/N 1B3ER69E9TV200820; Viper GTS Blue Pearl, White stripes/Gray leather; Unrestored original 2- condition; With Reserve; Not sold at Hammer bid of $47,500 – 488/415hp V-10, 6-speed manual, Michelin Pilot Sport tires, Alpine CD stereo. Comes with original window sticker. – Small scrape on the bottom left of the nose and a few chips on the driver’s mirror, all of which are clearly pointed out in photos. The interior is free of any major wear and tear, but it could use a detailing. Not perfect, then, but it’s a first-year GTS model showing just 9,727 miles and finished in the most desirable colors, so it’s still very appealing. Located in Arizona. – When the second generation Viper debuted in 1996, it brought more refinement (but not too much), more power and an available GTS model with a fixed roof. The Shelby Daytona Coupe-esque shape combined with the brute force of its V-10 made it a darling among car scribes in the 1990s, and it’s one of the few truly great American sports cars that doesn’t have the Corvette’s crossed flags on its nose. Attention has shifted to low-mileage early Vipers over the past few years, but surprisingly nobody went crazy for this one. Its flaws were few in number, and they were clearly and honestly presented in the photos. If the odometer read 900 instead of 9,000 it would have made more of a splash, but here it just brought a middle-of-the-road high bid.
Lot # 113 1967 Porsche 912 Coupe; S/N 459009; Bahia Red/Cork leatherette with tartan cloth inserts; Older restoration 2- condition; With Reserve; Not sold at Hammer bid of $40,000 – Dual Weber carburetors, 4-speed manual, chromed steel wheels, Blaupunkt radio. Comes with original books as well as service records going back to 1974. – Represented as a long-time California and Texas car with 42,882 actual miles and a recent service. No close-up photos of the paint and no word about serious restoration work, but the interior and engine bay look far too clean to be original. Underbody photos show wear and tear consistent with an older restored car. A solid 912 in attractive colors and has some extra punch from those Webers. Located in Florida. – Although Barrett-Jackson notes this car would need to be collected in Florida, a Texas dealer currently has it listed online with an asking price of $49,500. That’s a reasonable price for a 912 in this condition, and taking the fees and associated costs into account, so was the high bid on this online auction.
Lot # 116 2000 AM General Hummer Open-Top Pickup; S/N 137ZA9034YE186677; Bright White/Black leather; Black top; Original, modified for competition or performance 2- condition; With Reserve; Not sold at Hammer bid of $40,000 – Aftermarket wheels, brush guard, winch, custom diamond-stitched seats, Momo steering wheel, newer head unit with Bluetooth. – Clean CARFAX. Represented with 42,819 miles. No major flaws shown or represented. Other than light wear to the switchgear and light general age to the engine bay and underbody, it looks very good. Yes, it’s a Hummer, but it has clearly been one that cruised the beaches rather than stormed the beaches. And at current fuel prices, 10 mpg doesn’t sound so bad. Located in Illinois. – Governor Schwarzenegger isn’t the only one with a penchant for H1 Hummers. Depending on the configuration and modifications, a clean H1 can cost well into six figures. The Chicago dealer offering this one was quite a bit more modest on this one (it is currently back on their website asking $57,800), but the people clicking their mouse on Proxibid set their bar even lower.
Lot # 117 1987 Ferrari 328 GTS Targa, Body by Pininfarina-Scaglietti; S/N ZFFXA20A4H0070369; Black, Black vinyl roof panel/Black leather; Unrestored original 3 condition; With Reserve; Hammered Sold at $53,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $58,300 – 3,185/260hp, Sony CD stereo, air conditioning, books and tools. – Represented as 34,525 miles from new with a belt service 1,000 miles ago. Sound original paint and interior that is aged appropriately to the age of the car, if a bit much for the stated miles. It comes with a binder of service records that can be referenced for the date of the belt service. A sound but uninspiring driver. – With only 34,525 miles it is highly likely that the belt service, even though only 1,000 miles have passed, was several years ago. The recommended belt service window is something like three years meaning another engine-out belt service is in this 328’s near-term future. The result here is reasonable but leaves no margin for that belt service.
Lot # 121 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 2-Door Hardtop; S/N 138177168117; Ermine White/Red vinyl; Recent restoration 2 condition; With Reserve; Not sold at Hammer bid of $50,000 – 396/325hp L35, 4-speed manual, 3.31 Positraction, white steel wheels with hub caps, red line tires, bench seat, floor shift, tinted glass. – Represented as a matching numbers L35 car body-off restored last year. Original glass other than the windshield and some original exterior trim pieces, but the photos show a thorough and correct restoration that resulted in a gorgeous Chevelle. Located in Massachusetts. – Despite the 4-speed, the freshness of the restoration, and the commendably clear photography, this car brought a high bid consistent with an older, more flawed L35 Chevelle. Bidding hit 50 grand on Thursday (July 9) and then just stayed there. The consignor can’t really be blamed for wanting more, but if they are actually going to find a higher offer elsewhere in these times isn’t exactly clear.
Lot # 122 1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427/435 Convertible; S/N 194677S117941; Goodwood Green, White stinger/Green vinyl; Black vinyl top; Recent restoration 2+ condition; With Reserve; Hammered Sold at $90,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $99,000 – 427/435hp, 4-speed, Rally wheels with trim rings, red line tires, AM-FM, owner’s manual – 2015 Bloomington Gold certified and represented as matching numbers. Excellent paint, chrome and interior. The engine compartment is clean, dry and like new. There is a small amount of pitting on the steering wheel hub chrome but the rest of the interior trim and gauges are excellent. It’s hard to believe this restoration is over five years old. – What is missing from this transaction? A realistic price appropriate to its condition and authentication which should have been 50% above this result. The new owner got a great Corvette for a bargain price.
Lot # 128 1999 Ferrari 360 Modena F1 Berlinetta, Body by Pininfarina-Scaglietti; S/N ZFFYR51A4X0117833; Silver/Black leather; Unrestored original 3+ condition; With Reserve; Not sold at Hammer bid of $51,000 – 3,586/400hp, paddle shift 6-speed, Tubi exhaust, SF shields, Challenge-style rear grille, red calipers, aftermarket modular 19-inch wheels, Continental tires, air conditioning, Daytona-style seats, Pioneer CD/DVD stereo, books, service records. – 5-year old timing belt service at 27,669 miles; present mileage is represented as 33,893 from new. Good paint and interior worn as expected for the age and mileage. Service records show front and right side repairs in 2015 costing under $7,000 to repair which are not apparent in the supplied photos. Clean, orderly engine compartment. Good gauges and interior switches. A tidy, well-maintained car. – Like the 328 GTS that crossed the block earlier, five years and 6,000 miles are sufficient to warrant a new belt service. That and the repaired minor damage was sufficient to deter the bidders from approaching when the consignor probably feels, with some justification, should be a $75,000 car.
Lot # 132 2001 Ferrari 456M GT Coupe, Body by Pininfarina-Scaglietti; S/N ZFFWL44A710124619; Blu Pozzi/Light Blue leather; Unrestored original 2- condition; With Reserve; Hammered Sold at $100,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $110,000 – 5,474/442hp, 6-speed, 5-spoke alloy wheels, Pirelli tires, silver calipers, SF shields, CD changer stereo, air conditioning, power seats, books, tools, keys, clean Carfax. Assembly No. 41958. – Good original paint with some slight scuffs and nicks indicated in the website photos. Clean, orderly engine compartment. Very good original interior, dash, switches and gauges with minor scrapes on the console. – Sold by RM at Arizona in 2017 for $148,500 with 4,437 miles (according to the Carfax) and recently showing 5,290 miles. The result here is appropriate for the model, equipment and a declining depreciation curve.
Lot # 134 1970 Pontiac GTO Judge 2-Door Hardtop; S/N 242370Z124865; Polar White, Judge graphics/Red vinyl; Recent restoration 2 condition; With Reserve; Not sold at Hammer bid of $75,000– 400/370hp Ram Air IV, 4-speed manual, 3.90 Safe-T-Track, Gardner exhaust, polished steel gas tank, bucket seats, Hurst T-handle shifter, Rally gauges, factory radio. – No restoration work represented, but presents like a fresh and clean fully redone car from top to bottom in the photos. – This car isn’t represented as matching numbers, and given its bidding history we can assume it isn’t. Back in 2010, it was a $95,000 no-sale in Kissimmee and an $85,000 no-sale in Indy, and more recently it was a $60,000 no-sale at Mecum Glendale this March. This online reported high bid isn’t even what a driver-quality Ram Air IV Judge would ordinarily bring.
Lot # 135 1987 Buick Regal Grand National T-top Coupe; S/N 1G4GJ1171HP464376; Black/Grey, Black; Unrestored original 2 condition; With Reserve; Post-block sale at $62,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $68,200 – 231/245hp FI turbocharged and intercooled V-6, automatic, power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, AM-FM cassette stereo, power windows, tilt steering column, T-tops. – 105 miles, doesn’t appear ever to have been titled or road registered. Good paint, in an era when many GM paint jobs had defective clearcoat. Clean and orderly underneath and in the engine compartment, a third of a century old and barely aged at all. The front seats, doors and carpets are still in the factory’s protective plastic coverings. – Reported sold by Mecum at Kissimmee six months ago for $63,800, a successful hammer bid of $58,000. That result reflected a generous premium for originality and negligible miles and it was bid to slightly more here ($59,000), a bid that would have been $64,900 after the commission. The seller obviously was hoping for more, but there really isn’t much more and trying to come out whole after the seller’s commission would have required a totally unrealistic hammer bid on the order of $70,000. That was borne out after the online bidding closed when this lot was reported sold for $62,000 hammer, $68,200 with commission.
Lot # 137 1995 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra Coupe; S/N 1FALP42D8SF222355; Black/Black leather; Unrestored original 2 condition; No Reserve; Hammered Sold at $26,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $28,600 – 302/240hp, 5-speed manual, rear defrost, air conditioning, CD/cassette stereo. – Two very light paint scratches shown in the photos, but those are the only things detracting from the like-new, in-the-wrapper presentation of this Mustang. It shows 108 miles and was never even dealer prepped. This was the last year before the Cobra switched from the Windsor V-8 to the overhead cam Modular unit. Located in Arizona. – SVT Cobras are rare by Mustang standards, but with 4000 built in 1995 alone they aren’t exactly unobtanium, and 240 horsepower wasn’t exactly earth-shattering performance even 25 years ago. SN95 Mustangs also don’t have anywhere near the following that older Fox-bodies do, which is reflected in prices. Barrett-Jackson tried to move this car in its first online auction back in May, but it was a no-sale at 20 grand. It had better luck this time around, getting an appropriately large bump for its in-the-wrapper presentation to a number the seller should be happy with.
Lot # 140 2005 Ferrari F430 Spider, Body by Pininfarina-Scaglietti; S/N ZFFEW59A150143612; Grigio Silverstone/Tan leather, Black inserts; Black cloth top; Unrestored original 3+ condition; With Reserve; Not sold at Hammer bid of $77,000 – 4,308/490hp, paddle shift six-speed, electronic differential, black calipers, xenon headlights, carbon fiber driver zone, SF shields, leather-covered roll bar, climate control, cruise control, power seats, CD stereo, manettino steering wheel, yellow tach face, Ferrari luggage, Carfax, books, service receipts. – Represented as 35,525 miles from new. Extensive $21,000 service in 2014 for a litany of problems some of them, like bent wheels and clutch replacement, probably caused by rough use. On the other hand this is obviously a consistently maintained car in an attractive color combination that has few miles. – This isn’t much of an offer for a consistently serviced F430 Spider, but the history isn’t calculated to fill Ferrari buyers with confidence. Still, it should have been bid into the Eighties.
Lot # 145 1972 Ford Bronco Wagon; S/N U15GLN06404; Light Green, White top/White vinyl; Recent restoration 2- condition; No Reserve; Hammered Sold at $59,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $64,900 – 302/154hp, 3-speed manual, dual exhaust, steel wheels with hub caps, Hurst shifter. – Body-off restored, but not overdone. Not represented as matching numbers, but an original V-8 model. Other than a few details like light pitting on the headlight bezels and a few rusty fasteners underneath, it’s a mostly gorgeous stock and correct Bronco. Located in Arizona. – Although first gen Broncos are no longer getting more and more expensive by the week like they were a couple of years ago, they haven’t corrected downward, either, and the freshly restorations coming out of the Bronco boom are still selling for serious money. Although this is far from a record-breaker, it still brought a strong number, one of the few vehicles in this auction to do so.
Lot # 146 2004 Ferrari 575M Maranello Berlinetta, Body by Pininfarina-Scaglietti; S/N ZFFBV55A840138899; Engine # 5,748; Grigio Titanio/Charcoal leather, Grey bars; Unrestored original 2- condition; With Reserve; Not sold at Hammer bid of $91,000 – 5,748/515hp, paddle shift 6-speed, Ferrari CD stereo, Daytona-style power seats, climate control, black calipers, PZero tires, books and tools. Clean Carfax. Assembly No. 56292. – Good original paint and lightly worn upholstery consistent with the 15,838 miles represented as from-new. Clear headlight covers. Good gauge faces, interior trim and switches. Touched up edge chip on the deck lid and scrapes on the splitter and underside of the tail are about all that detract from showroom condition. – Offered by Mecum in Glendale, Arizona in March of 2019 when it was bid to $90,000. Eventually depreciation will bring this Ferrari’s value down to meet the bidders’ expectations but by then the bidders will be expecting to buy it for $70,000. Deviations in expectations like this are not uncommon today, looking for 2017 prices in the 2020 market.
Lot # 147 2015 Bentley Continental GT3-R Coupe; S/N SCBFS8ZA8FC049150; White, Green/Black leather with suede inserts; Unrestored original 2 condition; With Reserve; Not sold at Hammer bid of $105,000 – 3993/592hp twin-turbo V-8, 8-speed automatic. Comes with helmet. – Car 35 out of 99 GT3-Rs built for the U.S. market and 300 total. Showing 24,351 miles, but no visible signs of wear or age. Recently serviced, which is a big plus given Bentley shop rates. Located in Florida. – Surprisingly racy for a nearly 5000-pound car and inspired by the Continental GT3 race car, the GT3-R can do 0-60 in the mid-three-second range and do a quarter-mile in 11.6 seconds. As for price, modern Bentleys tend to depreciate like a piece of fruit, but a limited-production performance like doesn’t get it as bad as more mundane models. Even so, this car carried a base price of $341,025 just five years ago. After sitting at an $80,000 high bid for a couple of days, it hit the six-figure threshold on Friday (July 10) but didn’t go to a new home. It’s back up on the Florida dealer’s website, asking $137,899.
Lot # 149 2010 Ferrari California Convertible, Body by Pininfarina-Scaglietti; S/N ZFF65LHA5A0172313; Bleu Mirabeau/Natural leather; Unrestored original 2- condition; With Reserve; Hammered Sold at $98,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $107,800 – 4,297/453hp V8, 7-speed paddle shift, yellow calipers, SF shields, 5-spoke factory alloy wheels, carbon ceramic brakes, navigation, power heated seats, xenon headlights, yellow tach face, climate control, power windows, manettino steering wheel, cruise control. Clean Carfax. – Good original paint with nose stone chips. Very good upholstery, gauges, dashboard and switches. Orderly engine compartment. Represented as 4,981 miles from new and looks like it. – A front-engined V8, the California is a material departure from Ferrari form but it has gained a favorable following for its dynamics, performance and retractable hardtop. MSRP was just over $100,000 and this result and others suggest its appeal has not diminished, particularly with this attractive color combination, exhaustive options list and convertible roof. This is a representative price for a California like this.
Lot # 157 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 SportsRoof; S/N 0F02Z110422; Grabber Blue/White vinyl; Older restoration 2 condition; With Reserve; Not sold at Hammer bid of $167,500 – 429/375hp, 4-speed manual, Magnum 500 wheels, Goodyear Polyglas GT tires, Hurst T-handle shifter, factory pushbutton radio, dash clock, Marti Works Elite Report. – Represented with a matching numbers engine, replacement transmission, and 25,920 actual miles. Fully restored at Shelby Parts & Restoration in Wisconsin. Other than light discoloration on the front seats, it’s a very clean car with no apparent needs. Located in North Carolina. – Ford built just 1359 Boss 429s in 1969-70, but they don’t seem as rare as they actually are because they come to market regularly, often at high-profile auctions like Mecum and Barrett-Jackson. This one was reported sold for $214,500 at Russo and Steele’s Scottsdale auction in 2009, and Mecum reported it sold for $196,100 at Kissimmee in 2012. The reported high bid online in 2020 is driver-quality money for a car that, from where we’re sitting, is a lot better than that.
Lot # 158 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible; S/N VC57J163674; Matador Red/Red, Silver vinyl; White vinyl top; Older restoration 2- condition; With Reserve; Hammered Sold at $70,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $77,000 – 283/220hp Power Pack, Powerglide, power steering and brakes, quartz clock, skirts, spinner wheel covers, bumper overriders, dual outside mirrors, dual rear antennas, whitewall tires, electric wipers, Continental kit, stoplight viewer, heater, aftermarket stereo. – Puffy doors. Good paint and better chrome. The upholstery is like new. The top fits tightly. The engine compartment is clean, organized and nearly like new but has some paint loss on the block. A quality older restoration that has been carefully maintained. – This isn’t the greatest ’57 Bel Air Convertible (despite the description’s “laser-straight body” which it isn’t) but it’s a good one and well-equipped. The result is appropriate to the presentation and equipment.
Lot # 159 1971 Oldsmobile 4-4-2 W-30 Convertible; S/N 344671M171956; Silver, Black stripes/Black vinyl; Black vinyl top; Older restoration 2- condition; With Reserve; Not sold at Hammer bid of $77,000 – W-30 455/350hp, automatic, limited slip with W-27 aluminum diff cover, cruise control, air conditioning, power steering and brakes, body color Rally wheels with Firestone Wide Oval tires, bucket seats, console, Hurst dual gate shifter, AM/FM radio, 8-track player, power windows. Fully documented car including Protect-O-Plate. – Represented as matching numbers. Good paint. The door gaps at the fender need to be adjusted for consistency. The convertible top fits tightly. The side glass is scratched on the driver’s side and the trim around the convertible top is faded in finish. The engine compartment is clean and shows moderate use, as does the underbody. The interior presents well and does not show excessive wear. A decent older restoration with moderate use. – Reported sold at Russo and Steele Scottsdale in 2012 for $132,000, no-saled at Mecum Monterey seven months later at a high bid of $115,000, then sold at Mecum Indy 2013 for $155,150. It all unwound at B-J WestWorld six months ago where it was reported sold for $85,800, a bargain price by any standard. The supplied photos for this auction show exactly the same 80,157 miles as it did at WestWorld. The result here is even worse, which is counter-intuitive for an otherwise attractive, well-equipped and powerful Olds 4-4-2. The buyer, however, should be exceptionally pleased with this 4-4-2 convertible at this price.
Lot # 166 1989 Ferrari Testarossa Berlinetta, Body by Pininfarina-Ferrari; S/N ZFFSG17A9K0082372; Black/Black leather; Unrestored original 3- condition; With Reserve; Not sold at Hammer bid of $60,000 – 4,942/380hp, 5-speed, air conditioning, Momo leather rim steering wheel, power windows, – Represented as 23,338 miles from new. Stone chipped nose, cracked parking light lens, scraped splitter, peeling clearcoat on the hood, scuffed and swirled paint. Sound but surface creased upholstery. Clear gauges with crisp faces. Stone-chipped rear fascia. Aged and surface rusted original chassis and underbody. Not bad, but close, a neglected and used Testarossa that looks like it has far more than the claimed 23,338 miles. – Offered by Mecum at Phoenix (Glendale) in 2019 where it was reported bid to $90,000. The result here is highly skeptical, but is deserved by the presentation of this neglected Testarossa.
Lot # 169 2012 McLaren MP4-12C Coupe; S/N SBM11AAA8CW001209; Silver/Black leather; Unrestored original 2 condition; With Reserve; Not sold at Hammer bid of $105,000 – 3,799/592hp twin turbo V-8, 7-speed paddle shift, leather interior, heated memory seats, carbon fiber trim, optional lightweight wheels, PZero tires, black calipers, clean one-owner Carfax. – Represented as 3,200 miles from new and looks like it. Minor gouges on one wheel, lightly stretched upholstery. Unblemished under the nose and tail. Essentially like new. – Even with modest miles and expensively optioned, the MP4-12C has been overshadowed by later McLarens and even with negligible miles this is a reasonable bid. It would have been $115,500 with commission, an entirely reasonable retail price.
Lot # 171 1959 Jaguar XK 150 Roadster; S/N S8316430N; Black/Red leather; Black top; Older restoration 2- condition; With Reserve; Not sold at Hammer bid of $90,000 – 3,442/210hp, 4-speed manual, chrome centerlock wire wheels, Michelin X tires, Lucas driving lights, dual wing mirrors, woodrim steering wheel (factory steering wheel included), tonneau cover, tool kit, hidden radio with modern speakers in the back, JDHT Certificate documented. – Several chips and scuffs shown around the panel edges. Clean redone engine bay with few signs of use. Very light wrinkling to the seats but otherwise excellent interior. An older restoration, but a tidy car with no major needs. Located in Arizona. – This car sold for $60,225 at Hershey way back in 2003, but a lot has happened in the collector car market since then even if its restoration aged a bit. An appropriate bid for this car should be on the other side of 100 Large.
Lot # 172 2018 Ferrari 488 GTB Berlinetta, Body by Pininfarina-Ferrari; S/N ZFF79ALA0J0230171; Grigio Silverstone/Red leather; Unrestored original 2 condition; With Reserve; Not sold at Hammer bid of $247,500 – 3,902/670hp, paddle shift 7-speed, 20-inch wheels, carbon ceramic brakes, red calipers, carbon fiber trim, SF shields, power Daytona-style seats, carbon fiber manettino steering wheel and center console, climate control, backup camera, parking sensors, original window sticker, battery tender, spare key, car cover. – With 350 miles from new, this is a like-new Ferrari. – This is a realistic offer for a 488 GTB, even with all the expensive options, and could have been accepted with little regret. The next time it’s offered the price will be less.
Lot # 174 2018 Ford GT Coupe; S/N 2FAGP9CWXJH100074; Shadow Black, Gray stripes/Black; Unrestored original 2 condition; With Reserve; Not sold at Hammer bid of $795,000 – 3.5/647hp twin-turbo V-6, automatic, aluminum wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, red calipers, red Sparco harnesses. – Represented with 853 actual miles. All factory recalls performed, and the transferable warranty is valid until April 2021. The plastic for the seats and steering wheel isn’t currently in place but apparently comes with the car. Located in Arizona. – The Ford GT may have carried an official base price of $450,000, but ever since they came off Ford’s sales embargo and hit the second-hand market they’ve been bringing seven-figure prices. This one isn’t any worse than the other GTs that have hit the market recently, so expecting more than this reported high bid, even online, is reasonable.
Lot # 175 1983 Toyota Pickup SR5 Pickup; S/N JT4RN48S6D0072140; White, Brown graphics/Beige, Brown; Truck restoration 2- condition; No Reserve; Hammered Sold at $13,500 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $14,850 – 2366/97hp L-4, 5-speed manual, 4×4, power steering, factory air conditioning, bucket seats, powder-coated wheels. – An Arizona truck since new, recently given significant restoration work. Other than a few forgivable details like wear on the door handles and shifter as well as some scratched paint behind the seats and overspray around the bed, this is a phenomenal-looking long bed SR5. The wheels and tires look new, the graphics look fresh, and the engine bay looks almost unused. Located in Arizona. – Cheap, almost indestructible workhorses for years, the early Toyota Pickups (it wasn’t called a Tacoma until 1995) that are still around play on nostalgia for those of a certain age while some people just appreciate the simple, no-frills compact pickups that are increasingly rare in the new truck market. They’ve been getting more expensive as a result, and some like this one have gone through restoration. The long bed body style is somewhat rare, and the lack of Marty McFly add-ons is arguably a good thing. Although it sold for $19,950 on Bring a Trailer last July, there were almost certainly fewer eyes on it this time across the online auction block, and this price isn’t outrageously low.
Lot # 179 2006 Ferrari F430 Berlinetta, Body by Pininfarina-Ferrari; S/N ZFFEW58A660149506; Rosso Corsa/Tan leather, Black bars; Unrestored original 2- condition; With Reserve; Hammered Sold at $165,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $181,500 – 4,308/490hp, 6-speed, heated Daytona-style seats, carbon ceramic brakes, red calipers, SF shields, polished 5-spoke wheels, PZero tires, parking sensors, 19-inch wheels, carbon fiber interior trim, climate control, manettino steering wheel, power windows, yellow tach face. – Represented as 10,987 miles and carefully maintained although no service history is presented and although the clean Carfax shows no issues it also shows eight owners and there is no record of a major service in its history. – An encouraging and well-equipped F430 with a 6-speed manually-shifted gearbox, a Ferrari model that is attracting increasing interest. This is full-retail result but not unreasonable.
Lot # 183 2002 Honda S2000 Roadster; S/N JHMAP11442T002311; Spa Yellow Pearl/Black leather; Black top; Unrestored original 2- condition; No Reserve; Hammered Sold at $22,500 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $24,750 – 1997/240hp, 6-speed manual, K&N air filter (original Honda filter included), glass rear window. – Represented with 11,037 miles and a clean CARFAX. Small chip on the hood, another on the right front fender, and one more on the edge of the driver’s side door panel. Light curb rash on the right side wheels. Almost no visible wear to the interior. A lovely AP1 S2000 with low enough mileage that it feels practically new but not so low that it can’t be driven guilt-free. Located in Arizona. – And driving is what the S2000 is meant to do, so it’s weird to think that cars with three figure odometer readings that nobody will really enjoy could sell for twice this number. But they have, as this is rarely a rational hobby. Bidding on this car stayed still for the final two days of the auction. While slightly favorable to the buyer, it’s an appropriate result in the current S2000 market, which has seen prices rise beyond contemporary rivals that were more expensive when new like the Porsche Boxster and BMW Z.
Lot # 189 1970 Plymouth ‘Cuda Hemi 2-Dr. Hardtop; S/N BS23R0B298890; Red/White leather; Recent restoration 2+ condition; With Reserve; Not sold at Hammer bid of $280,000 – 426/425hp Hemi, 4-speed, 4.1 Super Track Pack, body color wheels, F60-15 Polyglas GT tires, hood pins, power brakes, hubcaps, Hurst pistol grip shifter, shaker hood, woodgrain steering wheel, heater, pushbutton radio, compact spare with bottle, jack. Broadcast sheet documented. – Represented as matching-numbers and the original engine, 4-speed and rear end. Excellent older paint, chrome and interior. The car card says the white interior is leather and original. The paint, chrome and interior are largely flawless. Represented as the original engine, transmission and rear axle. An outstanding example that was good to begin with, a 1998 Mopar Nationals Best of Show winner, and was re-restored in 2018. – Sold at WestWorld in 2001 for $92,880 with its previous (like new) restoration, it was reported bid to $300,000 at Mecum Kissimmee in 2018 and now has been restored again while adding only 76 more miles to its odometer since 2001. Bid to only $88,000 before closing day, it took off to this result on the closing day. The Hemi ‘Cuda mystique has faded and this is realistic bid for this lovely example.
