Auburn, IN. September 12, 2017. Worldwide Auctioneers’ tenth annual Labor Day Weekend sale, The Auburn Auction, delivered a 97% sell through rate and a total sale of $2.54 million on Saturday September 2nd in the fittingly historic setting of The National Auto & Truck Museum’s L29 Cord Building, within the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum complex. The sale was once again an integral part of the celebrated Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival, enjoying its 61st year. Top sales went to an outstanding 1938 Mercedes-Benz 320 Cabriolet B that hammered sold for $539,000 and a venerable 1907 Stoddard-Dayton Model K Runabout that realized $118,800. The Auburn Auction featured a diverse and eclectic selection of cars and motorcycles from three exciting private collections, from the dawn of the motorcar and both sides of the Atlantic, like a beautifully restored 1908 Holsman Model 10 High-Wheel Runabout that sold for $66,000, which was found prior to restoration stored inside the milking parlor of a dairy barn.

Next stop for the Worldwide Auctioneers team is The Scottsdale Auction on Wednesday, January 18th, the company’s second annual sale out in the desert after a terrific Arizona debut in January this year. Early consignments include a striking ACD certified 1923 Duesenberg Model A Sport Phaeton with original chassis, body and engine, an exceedingly rare 1966 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III Drophead Coupe with distinctive Mulliner Park Ward open coachwork and another ACD certified 1929 Cord L29 Cabriolet, an ACD Best Cord and CCCA Award Winner.

“2017 has been an extraordinarily momentous year for our business, as we continued our corporate expansion with inaugural sales in both Scottsdale and out on the Monterey Peninsula and relocated our longstanding Texas Classic Auction to a vibrant new venue in the heart of Arlington’s entertainment district,” said Rod Egan, Principal & Auctioneer. “We are absolutely committed to building on the successes of this year and to continuing to offer our customers a dynamic and wholly expert alternative in the market in 2018 and well into the future.”
