Barrett-Jackson has scheduled its second Online Only auction beginning July 6 and featuring a collection of about 50 premium offerings and more-than 250 pieces of automobilia. 

Bidding at the auction ends July 9 for automobilia and July 10 for collector vehicles, according to a Barrett-Jackson news release.  The auction company’s first Online Only sale, held May 8-17, resulted in $3.79 million in sales, including auction fees.

The July auction is part of Barrett-Jackson’s “Road to 50” push in anticipation of its 50th annual Scottsdale auction in January 2021.

Among the offerings in July will be 2018 Ford GT in Shadow Black with alloy racing stripes, “which will be the first time in history a 2018 model will be offered at auction,” the release says.

“I couldn’t be more appreciative of the response from our consignors and bidders for our most recent online only auction in May,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and chief executive of Barrett-Jackson. “We’re building on that excitement with our Online Only July 2020 Auction.

“As part of our ‘Road to 50’ celebration, it will feature an incredible docket of more than 50 thoughtfully selected vehicles that exemplify the diversity for which our dockets are known. We’re especially excited to be entrusted with the world’s first auction of a coveted 2018 Ford GT supercar.”

Barrett-Jackson is among most of the major collector car auction companies that have added all-online sales to their regular auction schedules as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Most regular live auctions that were to have taken place since March have been canceled or postponed for later this year.
