Some years ago, at prior Barrett-Jackson auction, I witnessed a car sell at a world-record price. It was a nice car, but not a remarkable one or an especially rare one. There was nothing in the catalog description that tipped off readers that it would reach a stratospheric sales price, but it did.
Mopar muscle cars are red hot at the 43rd annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction.
On Wednesday, a beautiful 1970 Dodge Challenger crossed the auction block at a hammer price of $92,000, which ranked it as the No. 4 top seller out of the 429 cars sold in the first two days. Not far behind in the No. 6 slot was a 1968 Plymouth Satellite custom convertible that fetched an eye-popping $80,000.
So today, when the quality of cars continues to build and prices continue to rise, we’ll be keeping a special eye out for Mopars.
