The car also has its Benrus steering-wheel clock — the Desotomatic — that winds itself as the car is steered while driving.

The car is part of the John Staluppi Cars of Dreams Collection.

Barrett-Jackson’s annual Palm Beach auction is scheduled for April 12-15 at the South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach.
