Barrett-Jackson, a global collector car auction company, is heading to Palm Beach for the company’s 14th annual Palm Beach Auction set for April 8-10 at the South Florida Fairgrounds. This year’s docket will feature a broad range of vintage, custom, supercars and late-model vehicles. Some early consignments include a rare 1957 Ford Skyliner F-Code Retractable Hardtop and an extremely low-mileage 2006 Ford GT Heritage Edition still in the wrapper.
“This year’s Scottsdale auction kicked off our 45th anniversary year with one of the strongest events in company history,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “We’re excited to continue that momentum with our Palm Beach auction in April, and we have an exciting weekend planned for what has become a true world-class event in South Florida.”
Among the hotly anticipated vehicles is the exceptional 1957 Ford Skyliner F-Code Retractable Hardtop, one of only seven Fairlane 500s built with a supercharged F-Code V8 engine with a retractable hardtop. The original owner campaigned this vehicle at top-level drag races and won the national championship for its class in 1957 and 1958.
“Our Palm Beach auction has become an annual tradition for automotive enthusiasts and collector car fans alike,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson.
