There were plenty of charity cars up for auction at Barrett-Jackson, but perhaps the one that benefited the most worthy cause was donated by GM. They brought out a 427 Limited edition Corvette Z06 worth more than $80,000 to Scottsdale and promised to donate the entire proceeds of the sale to the American Red Cross to help those who were affected by the devastating earthquake in Haiti. A 2011 Mustang auctioned for $330,000.00 with the proceeds from the sale benefiting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The 2011 5.0 Mustang was introduced a few weeks back in Detroit. The 2011 5.0 Mustang will be the pace car for the upcoming Daytona 500 next month marking the first time a Ford has set the pace for the Great American Racing in forty years. As with just about any car auction, the words "Shelby" and "Cobra” translate to a lot of money. At Barrett-Jackson this year two of the top sales in the car category were for Shelby Cobra’s. The first was a 1963, 289 Cobra with a fully rebuilt motor generating 417 horsepower. The second was a 1964, 289 chassis CSX2281, which had been rebuilt and restored. Bidding on these cars quickly shot into the six figure digits finally topping the scale at the $400,000 mark. A 1964 Chevrolet Corvette topped the list selling for $550,000. Meticulously built using quality materials two Ring Brother Mustangs were auctioned at Barrett Jackson. The “Reactor” Mustang topped out at $253,000.00 and the ‘67 Fastback nicknamed "Copper back” went to a new buyer for $159,000. One of the most unique vehicles at the auction was a "1952 Watson Roadster" built by the Blastolene Brothers. The final auction price was $280,500.00. The roadster has a 1792ci M47 Patton naturally aspirated engine producing 910 horsepower and 1500 lb-ft torque. The Watson Roadster is almost entirely hand-built and has an aluminum body. Lance Stander CEO Superformance and Shelby Distribution commented that “Barrett Jackson had taken the necessary steps to ensure a great auction and vendor setting.”
