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.
1970 PLYMOUTH SUPERBIRD – SOLD! $1,650,000
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.
1967 CHEVROLET CAMARO YENKO – SOLD! $632,500
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.
1963 CHEVROLET CORVETTE 327:360 Z06 SPLIT WINDOW COUPE – SOLD! $566,500
To effectively process your application, Barrett-Jackson will need a copy of both sides of your title. The scans must be completely legible.

Going Once, Going Twice: The best bikes from the Bonhams February sale
The Bonhams February sale is about to wrap up, so we’re taking a break from our regular scheduled programming to pick our favorite motorcycles from the auction. From an Ariel Square Four and a 1989 Kawasaki ZX-10, to Hans-Otto Butenuth’s BMW 500 Rennsport [above], here are seven classic motorcycles that we’d love to park in the Bike EXIF garage.
1907 Quadrant In the early 1880s, two blokes by the names of Walter and William Lloyd patented a pedal tricycle steering mechanism, which they (very confusingly) called the ‘Quadrant.’ Anyway, Quadrant went on to make bicycles, tricycles, and motorcycles, and, by 1901, had emerged as one of Britain’s earliest motorcycle manufacturers.
This 453 cc Quadrant was originally built in Coventry and was meticulously restored by a previous owner. It showcases its history through hand-written notes, technical drawings, old registrations, marque-related literature, and an SMCC Pioneer Certificate.

Road tested: TFX Suspension Xtreme adjustable rear shocks
I got lucky when I bought my 2012-model Triumph Bonneville SE last year. A single-owner bike with less than 1,500 miles on the dial, it had spent most of its life trickle-charging in a garage. What’s more, the previous owner had thrown a handful of tasteful factory accessories at it (and a few that were less well-judged).
There was one key ingredient missing though; good suspension. Most modern classics roll out of the factory with suspension components that are adequate at best, but the older air-cooled Bonneville’s setup is downright poor. Small LED turn signals and a fancy sprocket cover might make your bike look prettier, but new shocks—like the fully adjustable TFX Suspension Xtreme units now gracing the tail end of my Triumph—will make it ride better.
Based in The Netherlands, TFX Suspension is run by a small and passionate team, led by founders Hans-Dieter Fischer and Alex Meijs. The two of them formed TFX fourteen years ago when the suspension company that they were working for folded. Now they produce components on their terms, with the sort of hands-on approach that’s often missing from larger companies.
Their catalog includes various mono- and twin-shock items, suitable for a wide range of on- and off-road applications, plus a handful of front suspension upgrades. (We’ve seen their parts on custom bikes from Bottpower, Powerbrick, CNCPT Moto, and more.) They sent me a set of their Xtreme shocks to test out on my Triumph Bonneville; fully-adjustable units that retail for €1,399 [$1516].
