AUCTION TIPS: How To Sell Your Car At Barrett-Jackson
1955 MERCEDES-BENZ 300SL GULLWING – SOLD! $$1,870,000

It’s time to make some room in your collection for more cars or you might be ready for something different to take to the concours or local cruise-in. Perhaps you have attended a Barrett-Jackson auction before, or maybe you have been watching the event on TV for a while and you have seen cars just like yours cross the block. It’s got you thinking, “My car is as nice as those, I wonder how it would do at an auction.”

Each Barrett-Jackson event attracts thousands of pre-qualified potential buyers that have all passed a stringent qualification process to ensure their bids can be backed up when your vehicle is sold on the block.

So how do you get started consigning your vehicle for the next auction? The first step is to submit a Preliminary Consignment Form, which helps Barrett-Jackson evaluate your car. There are several ways to do this.

APPLY ONLINE

The easiest method of consigning is on our website. Just click on “Consign” on the home page. This will take you to where you can begin the online application process or explore information and additional options.

Start by inputting your contact information and vehicle details into the online form. Before consigning online, it’s important to gather all vehicle images and documentation in digital form. Scan both sides of your title. Know where the images and scans are located on your computer to avoid interruption.If you have multiple vehicles to consign, you may choose to register as a member on the website (top right of the page) and then log in. As a registered member, your contact information is automatically applied to each vehicle application, avoiding repetitive steps. When you click on “Consign” after logging in, you’ll be taken directly to the online consignment process.DOWNLOAD AND PRINT THE FORM

If you prefer to work on paper, there is also an option from the “Consign” page to download a printable consignment form, which you can fill out by hand and mail with all relevant information and photos.

PHOTOS

You will need to submit a minimum of six photos, one of which needs to be the VIN. The more photos the better, with several different angles, so prospective buyers can get a good look at your vehicle prior to and during the auction from its online docket listing. Providing quality photographs of your vehicle before it crosses the block is an important step in submitting your vehicle for auction (see “How to Photograph a Car”for some pro tips).

SHORT AND LONG DESCRIPTIONS

We require that you submit two descriptions of your vehicle with your application:

Short Description: Appears in the docket list on our website as well as in our printed materials. Containing only about 25-30 words, this should focus on features and information that cannot be seen “from the curb.” You should list selling points that may not be immediately evident, such as “ground up restoration,” “fresh engine rebuild” or “twin turbo.”Long Description: This is where you can get into the details of your vehicle, as well as its provenance, if known. People love to read the backstories of cars. This description can be up to 300 words, and it can include restoration information, expenditures, major facets, modifications, history, awards and anything else you feel will add to the selling power of your vehicle. Mention any documentation you have to back up any claims, particularly with regard to custom vehicles. Also include basic information, like transmission type, engine size, etc. The long description will appear on the website docket listing and the “car card” that is on the windshield of the vehicle while it is displayed at auction. This description may also be used in marketing materials, and portions may be read by the auctioneers on the block, so it is crucial to mention the most important or impressive things first. Stick to the facts and avoid subjective terms and wild superlatives in your descriptions, such as “world’s greatest car.” Make sure to talk about your specific vehicle, not the marque in general. You want people to understand your car.Consignors are required to sign off on the vehicle description, signifying that it is their depiction of the vehicle and not Barrett-Jackson’s. Barrett-Jackson won’t embellish, change or deviate from the owner’s vehicle description. It is the owner’s representation of the car.

TITLES

To effectively process your application, Barrett-Jackson will need a copy of both sides of your title. The scans must be completely legible.

Here comes trouble: A Triumph TR6 with a Matchless frame

Published

on

custom triumph tr6 matchless frame 625x417 1

Kids are impressionable, especially when motorcycles are involved. That magical combination of sound, smell and danger has a way of imprinting itself on young minds. But Kyle Harvey didn’t just dream of bikes as a child—he practically grew up with them.

Kyle’s trade is tool and die making, but his passion is building bikes. His father, Garth Harvey, got Kyle and his brother into bikes at a young age; as soon as they could start their old man’s vintage motorcycles, they were riding them. Living in Edenvale in South Africa’s Gauteng province, the boys also had direct access to the local Classic Motorcycle Club.

 

The folks at the CMC made quite an impression on young Kyle—and taught him everything he knows about vintage bikes. After helping numerous friends work on their bikes, he went on to open his own shop, named simply ‘The Workshop.’ Kyle has been building and restoring classic motorcycles for over a decade now.

This cheeky bobber is his latest build, and it’s immensely fascinating. The engine’s from a Triumph TR6 Trophy, the frame is from a Matchless, and the quirky handmade details on it are endless.

The Swan Song of the V12

Published

on

The V12 engine holds a special place in the heart of many automotive and motorsports fans. For some, it’s the sound of Formula 1 through the years, especially during the 1990s. For others, it’s engines like the 6.1 L BMW S70/2 from the McLaren F1 or the 3.9L Lamborghini V12 that powered all their cars from the Miura through to the Diablo. No matter where it lies in your heart, it is the “proper” configuration for many: 6 cylinders per bank, put into a V, and firing in an odd sequence to give it that special roar under power.

Yet, as concerns over fuel efficiency, qualms about environmental impact, and high-powered turbocharged V8 or V6 engines are the norm now, the V12 is slowly, but surely, being put to rest. In fact, the only place that V12s are still hanging on by the last threads of their engine mounting bolts are in supercars, hypercars, and a few ultra-luxury cars. Even then, many exotic brands have announced that their next cars will either be V10s or turbo V8s and V6s.

Since it appears that the swan song of the V12 is reaching a crescendo, we thought it only appropriate to celebrate the few remaining cars out there that carry them. It may be the last time we see some of these brands, many of which are known for their V12s.

The Amazing Last V12 Production Versions from the Big Brands

The writing is on the wall for the prancing horse, as the new Ferrari 296 GTB is showing the direction that Maranello is headed. Yet, unless you were invited to snag one of the limited-edition Monza SP1 or SP2 cars, there is still one car you can buy from the legendary marque that has all 12 cylinders fully intact.

The 6.5L F140 GA 65-degree V12 in the front of the 812 is the last road-going version of the V12 that debuted in the Ferrari Enzo. Producing a monstrous 789 HP and 530 lbs-ft of torque, it is no slouch either, as when the 812 Superfast debuted, it was the most powerful naturally aspirated production car engine ever made.

It has the typical low-rev Ferrari roar that rises into a howl as the car revs up to nearly 9,000 RPM, and will catapult the 3,845 (1,744 kg) car to 60 MPH in 2.9 seconds. As far as a curtain call is concerned, that’s a great way to bow out and focus on hybrids and turbocharged engines.

Mercedes-Benz used to be at the very top of the V12 pecking order when it came to luxury performance cars. Such classics as the S 65 AMG from the mid-2000s and the 500 TE AMG W123 Touring from the very end of the 1970s came with big V12s that sound astounding, but the biggest and baddest of the Mercedes V12s left on in a production car is the M279 E60 LA that hauled the S65 AMGs of 2014.

Road Tested: Gear from Shoei, Akin Moto and Rev’It!

Published

on

In our continuing quest to source motorcycle gear that combines safety and style, we bring you our thoughts on Shoei’s new ECE 22.06-approved NXR2 helmet. Plus a stealthy riding parka from Akin Moto, and the perfect pair of urban riding gloves from Rev’It!.

Shoei NXR2 helmet It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Shoei’s helmets. Every Shoei I’ve owned has fit and felt right from the first wear, with no major deviations in their sizing or shape from model to model. So when I was looking for a do-it-all street helmet to replace my well-used Shoei RYD, the new NXR2 was a no-brainer… and it hasn’t disappointed.

I loved the RYD for its combination of neutral styling, comfort and ventilation. The NXR2 basically feels like a premium version of the RYD; it has the same clean aesthetic, but ramps up the performance. And it’s one of the few helmets that meet with Europe’s new, and more stringent, ECE 22.06 standard.
