The 2016 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale collector car auction is coming up soon with an exciting list of Ford Performance cars from the muscle-car era through contemporary special interest models.

Celebrating their 45th Anniversary in 2016, the nine day event spans from January 23-31, under the tent and sprawling the grounds at WestWorld of Scottsdale.

The list of highly collectible cars this year will include a lot of the expected faces sush as restored Boss 429 Fastbacks from 1969 and 1970, a survivor 1970 Boss 302 and two Ford GT supercars.

Among the Boss 429s is a Royal Maroon 1969 model (Lot #1360) that was a single-owner car until 2014. With 19,500 miles, the car got a ground-up restoration and comes to the auction block with the original engine and 4-speed manual transmission, as well as a host of other matching-numbers parts.

There’s also a very rare Grabber Green 1970 Boss 429 (Lot #1400.2) that is one of 43 of 500 custom-built models in this color. It has original 40,900 miles and is matching-numbers with the “Drag Pack” 3.91 traction lock rear axle.

Another Boss 429, a Calypso Coral 1970 (Lot #1339.1) was restored in 2013 by noted aficionado Arild Thu and features its original 429 engine and transmission. Documentation includes the original Kar Kraft and Ford invoices, original sales invoice and Marti Report.

“Each of these Fords represents a great example of American craftsmanship and engineering,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “It’s clear their owners really had an eye for detail and were willing to put the time and effort into making them truly remarkable. I’m excited to watch these cars pass to the next set of owners and see their legacies preserved.”

A true survivor 1970 Boss 302 (Lot #1290) will roll across the stand, completely un-fettered in its original condition. It still retains its original factory tires and much of the original paint. As a one-owner vehicle, it is still titled in the original owner’s name and has 44,000 original documented miles.

Two second generation Ford GT’s will sell. One of 343 Heritage Edition Ford GT supercars produced, a 2006 Ford GT (Lot#1370) has the well known Gulf livery. It has only 5,718 miles on the clock. The second Ford GT is a low-mileage 2005 in red (Lot #1400.1) with the factory plastic still on the door sills.

Ford Performance is expected to make a showing this year too with something special to auction off as they usually do for charity. The big question is what will it be? A first production 2017 Ford GT? A special one-off Shelby GT-350? We’ll find out very soon.
