Crossing the auction block this coming April at The Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction at No Reserve will be the famed private collection of Philanthropist and Entrepreneur John Staluppi's vehicles which are currently housed in John Staluppi’s North Palm Beach Cars of Dreams Museum.
“John Staluppi and his wife, Jeanette, are an important part of the Barrett-Jackson family, and we are honored he chose us to offer his Cars of Dreams Collection,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Over the years, John has amassed some of the best examples of cars from the golden era of automobiles, and this offering will provide a special opportunity to own unique and meticulously cared for pieces of automotive history. We simply couldn’t be more honored that John chose Barrett-Jackson to sell his incredible vehicles in Palm Beach.”
Staluppi and his wife are known for their empire of auto dealerships, superyacht collections and of course, such vehicles as a ’69 convertible Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS Indy Pace Car, ’65 convertible Chevrolet Corvette Stingray that will be seen in April.
The philanthropic nature of Jeanette and John Staluppi was on display at the 2018 Scottsdale Auction when former U.S. President George W. Bush slammed the gavel following Staluppi’s $1.4 million bid on the first 2018 Corvette Carbon 65 Edition. One of many charity vehicles purchased over the years by the Staluppis, 100 percent of the sale from the Corvette will benefit the former president’s Military Service Initiative.
“Jeanette and I are extremely excited to be working alongside Craig Jackson, Steve Davis and the entire team of Barrett-Jackson,” said John Staluppi. “We have been part of the auctions for many years, and we believe Barrett-Jackson to be the premier collector car auction company in the industry. Barrett-Jackson is a well-run organization. Not only is it a car auction, it is an event for the whole family – our children are also car collectors. We look forward to offering our collection in April at Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach.”
