Following an exhilarating Super Saturday at Barrett-Jackson’s 2023 Scottsdale Auction, the excitement continued at WestWorld on Sunday, January 29, with a docket of amazing cars and automotive-related memorabilia.

More than 150 cars crossed the block on the ninth and final day of the record-breaking 2023 Scottsdale Auction. Muscle cars, pickups and SUVs drove sales, with several vehicles surpassing the six-figure mark. The day’s top sales included Lot #1593, a 1979 Chevrolet K10 pickup for $165,000; Lot #1632, a 1941 Willys custom coupe, for $126,500; Lot #1568, a 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am for $123,200; Lot #1604, a 2024 Bentley Continental Flying Spur for $106,700; and Lot #1581.1, a 1971 Chevrolet K10 pickup, for $100,100.
