Combining modern performance with classic and timeless style makes driving a vintage car more appealing to a broader audience, as the vehicle becomes easier to maneuver and more reliable. “Barrett-Jackson helped pioneer Resto-Mod culture” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “As technology has progressed, so has the quality and workmanship of these beautiful custom automobiles. A Resto-Mod has all the modern creature comforts you want, with the power and performance you need, in a great looking vehicle that’s going to run and drive every time you get in.” The art of fitting new mechanicals into classic bodies is at the very core of the hot-rodding ethos. It has led to the creation of the Resto-Mod movement and other growing segments, such as pro-touring. Among the top-selling Resto-Mods at the 2022 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction was a 1968 Ford Mustang custom fastback, sold for $1.1 million that benefits the STARS Foundation in Saskatchewan, Canada.
