Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2024: Cars of Tent 3

Interesting vehicles from all corners of Westworld


In our final story of this serial from the 2024 Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, we are featuring some of the more interesting cars in Tent 3. The selected picks all have some gee-whiz aspect that makes them worth highlighting even though you may not find them highlighted in PR or social media. Any of these pique your interest?

1973 AMC Javelin AMX
The redesigned 1971 Javelin was basically a reskin of the 1968-70 because resources were limited at American Motors, but Dick Teague and his team of designers did a fine job. The AMX lost its two-seater distinction and became a performance package instead. For 1972-73, a special Pierre Cardin interior became available, which must be quite rare in combination with the 360/four-speed.

1948 Chrysler New Yorker Business Coupe
You may have seen my overview recently about a Sedan Delivery that appeared on AutoHunter. The Business Coupe is another body style that is from days gone by that I find intriguing. Combine the body style with the long-wheelbase New Yorker body with the straight-eight and you have a majestic, fat-fendered Mopar from a different world. It is said that the original owner bought this car back in 2021.

1965 Cadillac De Ville Convertible
I’ve touched on this topic before, but ever see a car that doesn’t quite interest you, but the color or trim combination pulls you in? I feel this way about this Caddy. They’re almost a dime a dozen because many were treated well by mature owners, but the Samoan Bronze hue and matching interior has added weight to its desirability.

Diego Rosenberg
Diego Rosenberg
Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in metropolitan Phoenix.
