Barrett-Jackson’s Palm Beach auction starts today for the first time since 2019. The auction runs April 7-9 and will feature a number of notable collector cars including John Staluppi’s Cars of Dreams collection.
Mr. Staluppi has sold and rebuilt his collection several times in the past decade or so. Previous iterations of the Cars of Dreams collection included a Lexus LFA with the Nurburgring package, a Dodge Demon Hellcat with virtually no miles, and an assortment of restored and customized classic cars.
Modern Collectibles and Classics
A 2018 Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition with fewer than 300 miles showing will be one of the highlights of the Barrett-Jackson sale, also coming from the Cars of Dreams collection. This will actually be the second time Mr. Staluppi will have sold his collection at Barrett-Jackson’s Palm Beach sale – the first was in 2018.
Additional cars we’re excited to see cross the block include a 1957 DeSoto Adventurer Convertible – one of only 300 built – with a V8 HEMI and power everything – even a power seat, which really says something about how luxurious that car was when it was new. A well-restored 1967 Shelby GT500 that has original sheet metal and fiberglass, as well as its original steering wheel is sure to get the attention of bidders at Palm Beach.
Custom Cars at Palm Beach 2022
Some of the custom cars we’re looking forward to seeing cross the block include a 1958 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz with a modern engine under the hood and a very slick 1962 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster with an LT1 crate engine and Edelbrock supercharger finished in Charcoal Metallic with a custom interior that includes recling leather seats.
We’ll post an update with the top results from Barrett-Jackson’s 2022 Palm Beach sale once it concludes.
