Barrett-Jackson New Orleans Day 2: Full House Friday

The auction action heats up


As many Barrett-Jackson fans know, the auction itself is just one part of what happens around the enormous event sites each day. Guests at the inaugural 2023 New Orleans Auction at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center are able to enjoy live music in the Barrett-Jackson Fan Zone, complimentary Thrill Rides in the latest vehicles from Dodge and Toyota, shop in the vast Exhibitor Marketplace, and get some tips and tricks from the pros during the Adam’s Polishes detailing clinics.

The star of the day’s Automobilia Auction was an impeccable Shell Oil neon porcelain sign (Lot #7298) from the 1930s, which sold for $69,000.

From Jeeps to Mustangs and even a Model T Circus Wagon, Friday’s Collector Car Auction offered a little something for everyone! Topping the list for the day was a 1947 Bentley Mark VI (Lot #398) that sold for $97,900. Other top sales included a 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS (Lot #456) for $91,300, as well as a custom 1969 GMC C2500 pickup nicknamed “Chillipepper” (Lot #449), which set a new auction world record with its $82,500 sale. A 1966 Chevrolet Corvette 327/300 (Lot #420) was also in the spotlight with its $80,300 sale.

1972 Dodge Charger 440 Magnum (Lot #412)
