Record weekend for Auburn Auction

The following statement was issued Saturday by Auburn Auction Park:

Auctions America’s largest Auburn Spring sale comes to a close today (May 10). When the gavel falls for the final time later this evening, more than 800 cars and 250 lots of memorabilia will have crossed the block at the Auburn Auction Park, including 400 cars from the John Scotti Collection, all of which are being offered without reserve. As it heads into the final day of the event, this year’s Auburn Spring weekend has already proven a record weekend for the Auctions America team, both in terms of attendance and the volume of vehicles offered.

Saturday’s afternoon sale session will see the weekend’s premiere offerings roll across the block (from approximately 2 p.m. ET).

Among auction highlights:

  • An ultra-rare 1962 Chevrolet Impala SS 409 Lightweight Sport Coupe that has been largely untouched since it raced at the Indy Nationals in 1962;
  • A well-maintained and highly original 1939 Packard Twelve Touring Cabriolet by Brunn that still wears what is believed to be its factory coat of black lacquer;
  • A distinctive 1934 Chrysler Custom Imperial Airflow, restored to concours show quality;
  • 1987 Buick GNX with only 96 original miles showing; and,the last 2006 Dodge Viper SRT-10 VOI.9 Edition Coupe of only 100 built and one of only 16 equipped with the PREFIX option.

Additional Saturday attractions include:

  • The AACA Spring National Special Meet, including a car show featuring some 200 cars;
  • The Hagerty Youth Judging Program, featuring 15 students from Garrett Middle School (from 12 noon ET);
