The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions®, is set to
ignite the auction block with a host of Ford performance collectibles
during the nine-day 45th Anniversary Auction from Jan. 23-31, 2016, at

“Ford has been an integral part of the Barrett-Jackson family for many
years,” said Craig

excited to have our Scottsdale docket filled with rare Ford performance
vehicles. Besides being well-cared-for and maintained, each of these
powerhouses has some unique feature that makes it a truly remarkable
vehicle. I look forward to seeing the audience excitement amp up when
these Fords cross the block in January.”
Standing out amongst the trio of Boss 429s on the 45th Anniversary

and both were stored for 33 years. In 2014 the Boss 429 saw a ground-up
restoration. It includes the original engine and 4-speed manual
transmission, as well as a host of other matching-numbers parts.

“Each of these Fords represents a great example of American

the next set of owners and see their legacies preserved.”
