SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Oct. 9, 2020 – Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, is hauling in an extreme docket of Resto-Mod and custom trucks and SUVS, all selling at No Reserve, during the 2020 Fall Auction at WestWorld of Scottsdale, October 22 -24, 2020. Among those crossing the block is a modern warrior, a 4-wheel-drive 2020 Jeep Gladiator Launch Edition Rubicon (Lot #760) powered by an 850-horsepower Demon Challenger engine with only 10 actual miles. For classic Resto-Mod enthusiasts, Barrett-Jackson is also offering a 1967 Chevrolet C10 (Lot #783), which features a custom chassis, leather interior and remote hidden tailgate.
“Original trucks and SUVs are a terrific foundation for Resto-Mod and custom builds,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Ford Broncos, Jeep Wranglers and Chevrolet Blazers remain among the most desirable classic models among builders. This month’s Fall Auction will have an impressive selection of classic and contemporary Resto-Mod and custom trucks that we’ve consigned from some of the most respected builders and customizers.”
A 1955 Chevrolet Apache stepside big-window (Lot #678) offered at the Fall Auction is a multi-award-winning Resto-Mod truck. It features custom bodywork, including a remote-powered hood and tonneau cover. The leather and suede interior features detailed cherry woodwork, replica Dolphin gauges, an upgraded sound system and remote-powered bench seat complete with five actuators. Another Chevrolet pickup saw experienced craftsmen take the body and frame of a 1967 K20 (Lot #657) down to the last nut and bolt for a no-expense-spared build. It is powered by a 502ci V8 and offers four-season climate control and Bluetooth connectivity.
“Collectors will find some of the world’s most desirable custom trucks and SUVs in Scottsdale,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “Almost two decades ago, Barrett-Jackson identified the beginning of this trend for professionally built and highly customized builds. These trucks are more of a status symbol than they are utilitarian, which will add diversity to any collection.”
1970s Ford Broncos, like a 1971 model (Lot #680) headed to the Barrett-Jackson auction block, are popular among builders. Professionally built in Oklahoma, this example is powered by a 302ci engine with aluminum intake, headers and Holley carburetor. The interior features a tilt steering column, new heating and cooling systems, twin stick shifters, tubular doors, center console and a RetroSound stereo. A 1969 Ford Bronco (Lot #789) on the docket is the result of a complete ground-up build and has been driven less than 2,000 miles since the restoration was completed. The laser-straight body was refinished in Jet Black and sits on Toyo Open Country tires mounted on 20-inch alloy wheels, and the black interior features Corbeau custom seats.
