Bids Fly Over Cherry ’92 Ford Taurus At Barrett Jackson This Weekend

Late Friday evening, as the 2016 Barrett Jackson auction approached it’s final offering of the day, the crowd rose with excitement as Joseph Andrews rolled his mint 1992 Ford Taurus onto the auction block. “The room was literally electric,” said 14-year auction veteran Fred Johnson, “the crowd was buzzing the second Mr. Andrews revved up the stock 2.5 liter, four cylinder engine.” Exotic car expert and collector James Duvall weighed in on what makes a project like this so exciting. “With a showpiece like this, it’s all about the details. We are looking for a few things authentic to the era, specifically body panel misalignment, defective rear window actuators, and rattles in both the heat sink and muffler. If these details are missed, the value is dramatically reduced, but Mr. Andrew’s build is spot on.”

When asked what inspired the choices he made in the restoration, Mr. Andrews looked off into the distance and said, “It’s all about the history. This [the 90’s] is an era in American automotive design that will never be forgotten. This project was about paying homage to the craftsmen, and design teams responsible for what is arguably the quintessential car of its time.”  

With no reserve set, the Taurus rolled out in front of a crowd of thousands. The bidding started fast and hard, but eventually settled. The Taurus all said and done, set a record for mid-90 Sedans at a staggering $3700. “A lot of people don’t understand that these cars are collectables, and a real investment,” said auction winner Tim Gunther. “I might be out $3700 now, but this dream ride could easily see 38, maybe $3900 in another decade with the right care.”
