Leading the cavalcade of fine custom and Resto-Mod vehicles at the Las Vegas Auction was this 1963 Split-Window Corvette, which sold for $396,000.

 

Barrett-Jackson is no stranger to the world of Resto-Mods; you might even say we helped popularize the term. As fans of both the old and new schools, there really is no better way to celebrate the love of classic automobiles than by giving them a new lease on life. Resto-Mods have become one of the hottest and most popular segments in the collector car hobby. And if the results of the 2021 Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Auction are anything to go by, there’s no indication that it’ll be slowing down anytime soon. From a gorgeous 1963 Split-Window Corvette to the spotlight-stealing “Grinch” and twin-turbo 1960 Cadillac Coupe De Ville, it’s clear the hot-rodding ethos is alive and well at Barrett-Jackson.
