Super Snake strikes $330,000 in Vegas


Mustangs dominated Barrett-Jackson’s three-day Las Vegas auction, taking four of the top-five sales at the event, which culminated on 22 September.

Top of the pile was an 800bhp, Gone in Sixty Seconds-style 1967 Super Snake (main image) that made $330,000.

Craig Jackson, Barrett-Jackson’s CEO, claimed that to be a record price for the model.

Next in line was a rare 1970 Plymouth Hemi Superbird that sold for $297,000, with the remaining top-five sales going to a 1967 Mustang Fastback, a 1970 Boss 429 and a 1970 GT500 – for $275,000, $247,500 and $220,000 respectively.

The predominantly no-reserve auction meant all but one machine found a new home with c$21million being generated from 493 items.

In amongst the regular muscle cars were (pictured in order) vehicles such as a 1950 Chevrolet Suburban panel truck ($69,300), a 1955 Nash Metropolitan ($17,050) and a 1951 Ford Woody ($39,600).

Barrett-Jackson’s next auction will be held at Horses and Horsepower in Scottsdale, USA, on 20 October. Find out more here.
