Bernie's Top 40 Picks from Barrett Jackson: Palm Beach Part II

Apr 11, 2014

Two days ago I presented the first part of my Top 40 picks based off the Barrett Jackson: Palm Beach Car Docket List. If you didn't get the opportunity to read my first post, allow me to introduce the basis behind this post.

April 11-13 are the dates for the second Barrett Jackson auction of the year. The first one was held in their flagship city of Scottsdale, Arizona. The second one is being held in Palm Beach, Florida. Although this auction is only three days, please do not assume that the selection isn't as great as Scottsdale. Originally I selected 65 cars, but I was forced to reduce it to 40. Here's the last part of my selection.

Occupying Lot 323.1 is a 1963 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible. Beautifully restored classic with 51,300 original miles. Red with red interior, canvas top, boot cover and wide white wall tires.

Parked in Lot 339 is a 1952 Ford Crestline Custom 2 Door Coupe. Rare and only one of one prototype CurveMaster built by Arthur Vogel. This particular Ford came from the factory as a twin to an identically prepared car as the test subjects in a series of safety experiments.

A famous star has Lot 347 reserved just for them. Star of the 2005 Dukes of Hazzard movie, a fully documented General Lee (1969 Dodge Charger) that is signed by the TV Show cast with a fresh drivetrain.

At Lot 354, we have a 1954 Chevrolet Corvette Custom Convertible. 454/450hp V8 engine. Black exterior with black interior. 4-speed automatic transmission, C4 brakes, original 1954 Corvette body with C4 Corvette suspension. Newly restored from top to bottom. One of a kind.

Number 5 on this list goes to a 1954 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible parked in Lot 360. One of a kind pro-built custom. Chopped top looks and fits great up or down. Drives like a sports car and cruises comfortably. 5.0 Liter TPI engine, 700R4 transmission, Jim Meyers front end, digital dash, and air conditioning.

Located in Lot 374, we have a 2005 Maybach 57. 12 cylinder gasoline turbo 5.5 Liter engine. Two tone paint and new tires. 88,377 actual miles.

Parked in the lot next to the Maybach, there is a 1960 Porsche 356B in Lot 375. Beautifully restored 1960 Porsche 356 Super sunroof coupe. Engine and transmission are matching numbers per COA from Porsche. Freshly restored in stunning Aetna Blue with red leatherette. Runs and drives beautifully.

Parked in Lot 402, we have a 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur. This absolutely gorgeous and very desirable black on black Sput has a Strut grille and less than 19,000 actual miles. Powered by a twin turbo 6.0 liter V12 with 552hp, all wheel drive and a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Number 9 on this list goes to the occupant of Lot 408, a 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T. Rare, matching numbers, fully restored 1970 Challenger RT/SE 440 Six-Pack. One of only 296. Saddle tan leather interior, overhead console, center console, power windows, 6-way seat, power steering, power breaks and all RT/SE chrome badging present.

A 1969 Ford Talladega Fastback is located in Lot 415. This Talladega Fastback was restored from 2006-2008 with the engine transmission and rear end that was installed at the factory.

Located in Lot 461, there is a 1957 Oldsmobile Rocket 88 up for auction. This Golden Rocket 88 has the J2 package. Light blue color with blue and white interior.

Next we have a 1912 Ford Model T Depot Hack, parked in Lot 528. This hard to find Ford Model T is in original shape and runs great.
