We’ve all sat around on a rainy Saturday or Sunday and watched collector car auctions on TV. We sit there and watch our favorite cars go across the block, dreaming of the opportunity to own them ourselves. In our minds, if we were to win the lottery, I would buy that car, and this car, steadily building up a collection of legendary Fords.

Whether or not you have the means to add a legendary Ford to your collection, your next chance to do so is Barrett-Jackson’s 3rd annual Northeast Auction, taking place June 20-23 in Connecticut at Mohegan Sun. “Ford Motor Company has been a big part of the Barrett-Jackson family for many years,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Earlier this year in Scottsdale we teamed up to sell the first current-generation Ford GT ever available at public auction, which brought in $2.55 million for charity. We also hosted film star Chad McQueen for the charity sale of the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt VIN 001. Ford will continue to rev up the excitement during our Northeast Auction with the Ride ’N Drives, an interactive exhibit and an impressive display of their latest lineup of vehicles. We’re proud to have Ford as an important part of our collector car auction, and the many automotive lifestyle events and activities for fans to experience throughout the event.”

If it’s older Ford muscle cars that rev your engine, Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction will feature this 1970 Ford Torino Cobra Sportsroof. Featuring a 429ci Cobra Jet engine attached to a C6 automatic with a 3.50-gear 9-inch rear; this example has just a tick over 31,000 miles on it. Much of the car has been restored, but the interior remains just as it was when purchased new by Murray Cochran back on November 21, 1969.

Up for grabs at Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction is a customized 1960 Ford Starliner carrying the name “May Cause Dangerous,” a 1-of-50 2014 Shelby GT500SE Super Snake, a 1-of-100 2008 Barrett-Jackson Edition Shelby Mustang GT, a 1970 Ford Torino Cobra Sportsroof, a 1970 Shelby GT500, and many more.

“We have an enviable docket of Ford vehicles lining up for the Northeast Auction,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “Ford has continued to innovate and evolve its vehicles since Henry Ford first introduced the Model A over a century ago. There’s a deep passion for Ford-powered vehicles among performance enthusiasts and collectors around the world. We’re proud to have such a broad mix of these Blue Oval cars coming to our Northeast Auction.”

So, if you’re looking to add a legendary Ford to your collection, or you need more justification for higher education, catch Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction June 20-23. Count us among the group of dreamers.

Oh man, where are those lottery winnings when we need them?! This 1962 Shelby Cobra 50th Anniversary Edition will go across the block at the Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction. This Anniversary Edition is 1-of-50 built, and looks straight out of 1962.
