SUNSHINE AND SUPERCARS: Day 3 in Florida Brings the Heat with Multiple Million-Dollar and High Six-Figure Sales
LOT #742 – 2022 FORD GT ALAN MANN HERITAGE EDITION – $1,292,500

The sun was shining during the final day of the 2024 Palm Beach Auction and supercars proved to be the superstars of the show, producing many exciting moments with big sales with an enthusiastic audience. The last of the more than 600 incredible collector vehicles made their way across the block on Saturday, resulting in over 20 record-breaking sales.

The day’s top seller was an Alan Mann Heritage Edition 2022 Ford GT (Lot #742), setting a new world auction record with its $1,292,500 sale, followed by a 2022 Ferrari SF90 (Lot #732) with its world auction record sale of $1.1 million. The third collector car to join the seven-figure club on Super Saturday was a 2021 Ford GT Carbon Series (Lot #721) with its $1,001,000 sale.

Ford GTs continued to command the top slots at the event, with a 2019 Ford GT (Lot #764) crossing the auction block for $902,000, followed by a 2005 Ford GT (Lot #725) for $451,000 and a 2005 Ford GT Heffner Performance Twin-Turbo (Lot #745) that sold for $374,000.

Other superstars of the show that landed in Saturday’s top sales included a 2020 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ (Lot #740) for a world auction record of $698,500, a 1946 Dodge Power Wagon custom pickup (Lot #746) for $363,000 and a 1966 Chevrolet Corvette custom convertible (Lot #716) for $335,500. A 1933 Pierce-Arrow Twelve convertible sedan (Lot #723), 2024 Jeep Gladiator Custom Demon 170 pickup (Lot #748) and the 1969 Dodge Charger “Joe Dirt Daytona” movie car (Lot #749.1) each brought in winning bids of $330,000.

In addition to all the supercars on the block, the Palm Beach chapter of the Ferrari Club of America ‒ along with dozens of participants and their vehicles from South Florida’s Supercar Saturdays ‒ joined in on the final day of Barrett-Jackson fun in Florida by rallying to the event. Dozens of young automotive enthusiasts and students were also on-site as part of the Ford Youth Initiative.

Celebrities in attendance on Saturday included Vicente “The Silent Assassin” Luque, a Brazilian and American professional mixed martial artist currently competing in the UFC welterweight division, who stopped by the auction to take in all the action.

The morning’s Automobilia Auction also brought some impressive sales. A spectacular Texaco Oil neon porcelain sign with animated neon (Lot #8296) from the late-1950s/early ’60s was the big winner of the day, with a final bid of $36,800. Other neons that earned a spot in the Top 5 included a large 1951 Mobil Oil porcelain Pegasus sign with animated neon (Lot #8299.1) that sold for $33,350 and a 1940s-50s American Gasoline porcelain with neon sign (Lot #8297.1) that crossed the block for $29,900. Gas pumps remained popular with bidders as well. A highlight was a 1928 Polly Gasoline Wayne Model 615 visible gas pump (Lot #8287) with its $34,500 sale, followed by a late-1950s Polly Oil fuel island with two Wayne 505 gas pumps (Lot #8283), which sold for $31,050.

Beach Boy: A surf-ready Yamaha WR155R scrambler from Thailand

yamaha wr155r scrambler 745x497 1

Yamaha WR155R scrambler by Dream Fast Co.
A surfboard rack on a motorcycle might seem like a gimmick to some, but if you live in Bali and love surfing, it’s a downright necessity. The Indonesian island is peppered with surf spots—and a small bike with a rack is the best way to get to them. It doesn’t hurt if that motorcycle looks as good as this Yamaha WR155R scrambler.

The bike was built by Dream Fast Co. for Tiw, the founder of the Laem Yah Rayong Surf Club. Both parties are based in Thailand, but the influence came directly from Bali’s motorcycle and surf culture. Tiw has Balinese friends who use vintage enduro bikes to find hard-to-reach surf spots, and wanted to capture that vibe in his Yamaha WR155R.

Dream Fast Co.’s mandate was to take the modern and reliable WR155R and inject it with a big dose of classic Yamaha dirt bike style. It sounds simple enough on paper, but in reality, it meant wading through piles of plastic to shed the WR155R’s contemporary aesthetic.

Once the Yamaha was denuded of its plastics, the Dream Fast Co. crew set about reworking its lines. The subframe was hacked off, and a new one was fabricated, this time with a kicked-up loop at the back. A new seat sits up top; it’s designed for one, but there is a smidge of space out back if you and your passenger want to get extremely cozy.

1967 FORD BRONCO CUSTOM SUV: Selling with No Reserve at the 2024 Scottsdale Fall Auction

This custom 1967 Ford Bronco underwent a full, frame-off restoration in 2020 that was completed in 2022. The frame and all components have been powder-coated in black. The body parts were media-blasted and coated top and bottom in LizardSkin for protection. The powerplant is a 351W with aluminum heads, roller rockers, mild roller cam, 10.25:1 compression and .40-over pistons. An Edelbrock Pro-Flow 4 fuel-injection system controls and monitors the engine components. It also features a CVF serpentine pulley system, K&N filters and an aluminum radiator.

The engine is backed by a C4 automatic transmission built to handle 400hp and includes Kevlar bands, Redline clutches, a 2,000-rpm stall converter and Dana 20T transfer case with twin-stick conversion. Power goes to a Ford 9-inch rear end with a Dana 30 front differential, WARN locking hubs and 3.50-ratio gears. It also features power steering and brakes (front disc and rear drum), new drive lines, a ceramic-coated exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers, complete Painless wiring, a chrome tilt wheel, 2.5-inch suspension lift with 2-inch body lift, stainless-steel brake lines, six Bronco oil shocks with single steering stabilizer and a BorgWarner steering box with all billet components.

This SUV was finished in a new Bronco Area 51 Blue with the original Bronco Wimbledon White hardtop, roll cage, dash, grille and accessories, and rides on color-matched Ford steel wheels wrapped in Toyo Mud Country tires. The cabin includes high-back bucket seats with a console, a rear seat that folds up, shoulder seat belts and a Vintage Air system for heating and cooling. It also features a Kenwood head unit with back-up camera, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and charging port, and sound going through two 6×9-inch and two 6.5-inch KICKER speakers paired with a 10-inch Fosgate subwoofer.
