Barrett-Jackson Hauls in Loads of Custom Trucks for 2018 Scottsdale Auction
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Nov. 30, 2017 – Barrett-Jackson is set to haul in an incredible docket full of highly desirable, professionally-built custom trucks during its 47th Annual Scottsdale Auction, January 13-21, 2018, at WestWorld of Scottsdale. The year’s premier automotive lifestyle event will include many of the best custom trucks built by some of the most respected custom coachbuilders in the industry.
“People constantly look for opportunities to expand their collections, and trucks are excellent additions for any collector,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “The most sought-after vintage trucks are full custom builds, and buyers are seeking both unique design elements and high-quality craftsmanship. Scottsdale will have a great selection, from fully restored ’40s-era Dodge Power Wagons to professionally-built customs. Bringing such a spectacular and diverse docket under one roof that spans more than a million square feet of space will no doubt make for an unforgettable 2018 Scottsdale Auction.”
Some of the most notable custom trucks crossing the block include a ’56 Ford F-100 (Lot #1346) featuring a custom chassis, modern Mustang 5.0 Coyote engine and 6R80 automatic transmission. NASCAR racing legend Rusty Wallace’s ’66 Chevrolet El Camino Custom Pickup (Lot #1318) built by West Coast Customs also features numerous upgrades by another renowned builder, Detroit Speed. A ’51 Chevrolet 3100 Custom Pickup (Lot #1101), built on an Art Morrison chassis and powered by a Chevrolet LS3 Hot Cam engine, is the recipient of numerous awards and was featured in the November 2015 issue of Street Trucks magazine.
“The mounting interest in collectible trucks is making them a truly hot auction item,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “Like 1960s-era American muscle cars, trucks have become as much as a status symbol as they are utilitarian. I’m very proud that the owners, collectors and builders of these incredible custom trucks look to Barrett-Jackson as the ideal marketplace to sell these impressive machines.”
