Bernie's Top 20 Picks from 2014 Barrett Jackson: Scottsdale... Part II

Jan 17, 2014

Two days ago, I posted Part I of my Top 20 Picks from Barrett Jackson's Scottsdale auction. Well, I'm here to present part II.

I'm starting this list on a vintage exotic high note. Parked in Lot 663, there will be a 1982 Ferrari 400I 2+2 GT. Pininfarina coachwork, 4.8 Liter V12 engine, and it's one of 883 produced.

A few lots away at Lot 670, you can find a 1970 Volkswagen Bus Custom Beach Bus. 1970 Hawaiian style customized beach cruiser that is licensed for the street as well. It has custom seating for seven, full cage and custom stereo. This is a one of a kind custom bus. And yes, I would honestly drive this... in Venice, California.

Another cute car, a 1969 Goggomobil TS-250 Coupe is parked in Lot 675. 2 cylinder gasoline engine, 48 mpg, 0-60mph in 26 seconds. Amazing room for two adults and two small children. Rack and pinon steering. Fully restored. And since we're being honest, I would drive this... but not with two small kids in the car.

Located in Lot 686, you will definitely find a 2003 Nissan 350Z with the VIN of #0001, which makes it the first production 350Z made. Just over 250 actual miles, 3.5 liter V6, 260hp, 6 speed transmission, power windows, power locks, track package and much more.

Number 5 on this list is going to this 1973 Dodge Challenger that's parked in Lot 753. Laser straight bodywork and excellent Ferrari red paint. 770hp (YES!!!!) fuel injected engine, stall converter, automatic transmission and Foose wheels. From the Michael Jenkins Collection. I'm just thinking about all the trouble I would get into owning a Dodge Challenger like this one.

Up for auction in Lot 825.1 there is a rare 1998 Ferrari 355 Spider Convertible. Bianco Avus exterior with a beige leather interior. Powerful 3.5 liter mid-engine V8, 6-speed manual transmission.

Another vintage gem can be found in Lot 983, which would be a 1952 Jaguar XK 120. Matching numbers vehicle includes a Heritage Certificate of Authenticity. 6 culinder overhead cams XK engine, twin SU Carburetion, 160bhp one of the most elegant Jaguar models of all time.

A Bentley Continental GT is currently occupying Lot 1057.1. Exceptionally stunning and meticulously maintained since new off the showroom floor. Extremely rare Dark Sapphire luxury car has less than 22,700 pampered original miles. Sits on brand new upgraded 2 piece custom Asanti wheels.

Number 11 on the list goes to the cousin to the Ford Shelby, it's a 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback parked in Lot 1077. This unrestored Boss 429 is in factory color code Raven Black with black interior matching numbers original car.

I had the pleasure of being introduced to this next vehicle at SEMA, the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Copo in Lot 3007. Serial number 1 of 69 units. One of one Silver Ice metallic satin paint finish. LS-based 350Cid racing engine featuring a 2.9 liter Whipple screw-type supercharger and Turbo 400 heavy-duty automatic racing transmission. Sold on Bill of Sale only.

In Lots 5082 and 5083, there is a 1922 Spillman Engineering Corp 40 Menagerie Carousel with an 1865 Gasparini "Gypsy Queen" Calliope/Organ. This fully functional 40 foot Menagerie carousel was the brain child of Allan Herschell. The carousel carries a collection of his favorite hand carved characters that traveled and operated around the world. Sold with this calliope that was named after its creator, Alexander Gasparini. Gypsy Queen was purchased out of Alexander's workshop in Paris, France and brought to the US by Gypsies who would pole their barges up and down canals and rivers to entertain.
