If you like old trucks, a slate of them crossed the Barrett-Jackson auction block on Thursday, including 1960s-era Chevy C10s and a 1958 Cameo, known as Chevy’s fancy pickup.
And there were longtime collector favorites such as Camaros and Mustangs.
Thursday’s top-seller was a 2021 Ford Bronco “Bronco 66” first edition model that went for $500,000. This was a Ford charity sale benefiting the Pope Francis Center. The second highest seller was a 1965 Shelby Cobra 427 that sold for $280,000. A 1964 Ford GT40 re-creation (featured below) came in third at $225,500 sale price.
Auctions at Barrett-Jackson kicked off Monday at WestWorld of Scottsdale and continue through the weekend. While Barrett-Jackson is the biggest, and can be watched on TV, other collector car auctions are in the Valley for Arizona Car Week, as well.
Here are 11 auctioned Thursday, including the sale prices.
