Four Ford GT cars were amongst the top-ten results at the Barrett-Jackson Houston 2022 collector car auction in Texas, USA. A 551-mile 2019 Ford GT sold for $1,028,000 while a similar model with ten times the mileage missed the million-dollar mark by $20,000. Barrett-Jackson, and very generous supporters, again collected over a million dollars for charity.

The three top results at the Barrett-Jackson Houston 2022 collector car auction were for Ford GT cars with a further one at place nine. The 2019 Ford GT that sold for over a million dollars had only 551 miles on the clock while the 2019 Ford GT that just missed the million-dollar mark already had already been driven 5,300 miles and had a minor shunt that still cost nearly $24,000 to repair! At least 15 Ford GT cars have sold for over a million dollars at public auctions thus far in 2022 and around three dozen since the current series was launched (and countless more just missed the mark).
Barrett-Jackson Houston 2022 Charity Lot Results
Barett-Jackson continued its proud (and very successful) tradition of auctioning off cars for charitable purposes at the Houston 2022 collector car auction:
Two vehicles crossed the auction block in Houston with 100 percent of their hammer prices benefiting two incredible causes. On Saturday, American businessman and philanthropist George Shinn donated a 2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition (Lot #3001) to support Samaritan’s Purse and the Florida Disaster Relief Fund to support those suffering in the wake of Hurricane Ian’s devastation in Southwest Florida. Shawn Shelby, the grandson of Carroll Shelby and an American racer and entrepreneur, drove the limited-edition Mustang on the block, which initially hammered in at $400,000.
Immediately following the sale, an additional $288,000 in pledged donations were made by Shinn, Michelle Mauzy, Beth and Preston Ingram, Kathie Lee Gifford and Rick Hendrick. Before the car could get too far away, it was donated back by the winning bidder and hammered a second time for $300,000. Additional cash donations were collected from generous guests in attendance and the entire amount raised for hurricane relief efforts surpassed $1 million.
On Friday afternoon, a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS Callaway/Hendrick Edition (Lot #3000) donated by Michelle Mauzy sold for $250,000 benefiting Operation Homefront.
The next Barrett-Jackson sale is the multiple-day flagship Scottsdale Auction, January 21-29, 2023.
