Barrett-Jackson’s 2024 Scottsdale auction also sold classic car parts

Barrett-Jackson’s 2024 Scottsdale auction also sold 1,180 pieces of authentic automobilia for $6.7 million. These three pieces pieces earned the most money:

– 1960s Mopar neon porcelain channel letter sign, which sold for $115,000.
– Circa 1940s-50s Mobil Oil neon porcelain rotating Pegasus sign, which sold for $105,800.

The sales of automobilia parts like these raised the total earnings of Barrett-Jackson’s 2024 Scottsdale auction to $207.6 million. It’s the biggest chunk of change a single auction has ever netted the company.

Four cars were also up for charity

These charity vehicles raised a total of $1 million:
