Buying a Classic Car Just Got a Whole Lot Easier – at Barrett Jackson Auction

2013 scottsdale barrett jackson auction

Every year thousands of classic car enthusiasts flock to auctions held nationwide by Barrett Jackson Auctioneers for their chance to bid on a ’68 Mustang Shelby GT500, a ’69 Camaro 427, or some other American or foreign legend. The average buyer however, is often put off by the idea of bidding on a classic car due to the exorbitant prices at which these cars potentially sell for.  Traditionally, a buyer needs to have a loaded bank account to be considered for bidding.  Realizing the issue this created for those buyers who lack adequate liquidity, Barrett Jackson Auctioneers have come up with a long awaited solution to this problem. They have teamed up with Woodside Credit, a national collectible car financing company, to provide competitive monthly financing rates for buyers at auction. With this initiative the organizers at Barrett Jackson hope to provide buyers with more flexible purchasing opportunities that will help a greater number of classic car enthusiasts to realize their dream of ownership.

In the past, buying options at auctions included having a letter of guarantee from a bank, using a wired money transfer, putting a deposit to obtain a minimum bid limit, or paying cash in full. Now, buyers can apply for credit with Woodside Credit before the auction and be ready to make their bids hassle free when they attend auctions. Potential buyers can apply for pre-approval online at or by phone; the minimum pre-approval amount is $30,000.

So for those of you have been waiting to finally take part in the bidding wars, when you head out to Las Vegas, Palm Beach, or Scottsdale next year, you can leave your life savings at home and pack your driving shoes.

TFLcar will be at the Barrett Jackson Scottsdale 2013 auction in January to bring you Sights and Sounds from this fun event.
