Pre War Fords at Barrett Jackson West Palm Beach 2011

A break from the norm(whatever that is!) this is a look at the Pre-War Ford products at the Barrett-Jackson sale in Palm Beach. I spent some time looking over the Ford Motor Company new car exhibit and found the staff there very helpful & friendly.  For someone who hasn't been to a Barrett-Jackson Auction, they are well worth going to! Ticket & Merch prices are reasonable (I've paid more for a T-shirt at a concert than I have at Barrett-Jackson), and you will certainly get your money's worth- or if you want to look at it from a ROI standpoint, you'll be ahead of the game by the time you get all the free T-shirts, stickers, posters, etc.  Enough of that! Let's take a look at the cars............
Model T Speedster

TT Truck
1930 Model A Ford Standard Roadster

My personal favorite- 1935 Ford Phaeton

Dash of 1935 Phaeton

Rare Accessory Radio in 1935 Ford

Speaker Grill of the radio. Never go wrong with the Ford script!

Seldom seen 1942 Lincoln Continental

Passenger area of Continental

Ford Display Area

Like to have this for my garage!
Sure it's past 1940, but who doesn't like Andy Griffith?

1948 Lincoln Continental on the block. Taken from the cheap seats- spectator area.

Portion of the crowd.

Yes it's new! Part of the Ford exhibit.
