Barrett-Jackson Brings Impressive Docket to 2nd Annual Northeast Auction, Online with Proxibid

Omaha, NE—June 12, 2017—Proxibid, the most trusted way to connect buyers and sellers of highly valued items, will be the exclusive provider of online bidding when Barrett-Jackson’s 2nd annual Northeast Auction takes place June 21-24. Barrett-Jackson, the World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions®, will bring the wildly popular Northeast Auction back to Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT, featuring an impressive lineup of American muscle cars, modern supercars, automobilia, and much more.

“As the newest event on Barrett-Jackson’s calendar, the Northeast Auction is quickly becoming a staple for car collectors worldwide,” said Craig Jackson, Chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “We continually strive to be at the forefront of technology, and our continued partnership with Proxibid is another innovative way to bring our signature Barrett-Jackson experience to bidders around the globe.”

The inaugural Northeast Auction yielded unprecedented results, including three record-setting sales and the first double-sellout in Barrett-Jackson’s 45-year history. For those unable to attend the 2017 Northeast Auction in person, Proxibid is the best alternative to be a part of the action.

Hundreds of highly sought after collector cars will cross the block at the 2nd Annual Northeast auction, including:

  • 1970 Mustang Boss 429: A new 1970 Mustang? This incredibly rare vehicle boasts just 10 test miles on the odometer, having undergone a recent restoration. Finished in Grabber Blue, the Boss 429 received a score of 944 of 1,000 from the MCA.
  • 2017 Ferrari 488 Spider: One of the world’s most desirable supercars, the 2017 Ferrari 488 Spider can usually only be purchased through a lengthy waitlist. This auction is a rare chance to own this example, finished in Corsa Red with just 77 miles on the odometer.
  • 1966 Shelby GT350-H Fastback: Less than 1,000 Shelby GT350s were built in 1966, and only 59 were finished in Ivy Green. Produced as part of the renowned Shelby/Hertz collaboration in the 1960s, the car has undergone a complete restoration to its former glory, and features a three-speed automatic transmission.
  • 1977 Porsche Carrera 3.0 Targa: As an incredibly rare 3.0 Targa built in left-hand drive, this car is a must-have for American Porsche collectors. It features a five-speed manual transmission, 3.0-Liter engine, and will cross the auction block at No Reserve.

With Proxibid, buyers can see and hear the auction in real time, and place bids alongside the on-site crowd, knowing their purchase is backed by the industry’s most sophisticated risk management and fraud protection system, designed to ensure buyers are secure when transacting online.
