The inaugural Gooding & Company Scottsdale Auction was a stunning success, with a grand total of more than $21 million for 64 cars sold, of which 7 cars sold for more than $1 million individually. World-record sales were set for the Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 ($1.54 million) and the Rolls-Royce Phantom II Streamline Saloon ($852,500). 

Additional highlights from the dynamic auction included the 1963 Ferrari 400 Superamerica and the Packard Individual Custom Eight Convertible, which each sold for more than $1 million. The Model J Duesenberg “Clear-Vision” Sedan also broke the million dollar mark, due in part to its refined sedan body and its remarkable history. 

Gooding & Company’s star car, the 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider, sold for $3.3 million, the highest price paid during the week-long Scottsdale auctions as of press time. This vehicle was one of only fifty long-wheelbase California Spiders ever produced.

“We were thrilled by the exceptional turnout and results from our first Scottsdale auction.  90% of our cars sold,” said President and Founder David Gooding. “With 64 lots, the average price per sale exceeded $328,000.”

Additional note-worthy sales of the Gooding & Company Scottsdale Auction include the Ferrari 330 GTC Speciale by Pininfarina, which sold for $550,000 and the one-of-a-kind 1941 Lincoln Continental Coupe designed by Raymond Loewy, which caught the attention of numerous auto aficionados and was purchased for $451,000. Boasting an elaborate provenance, the Eisenhower/Nimitz 1934 Packard Super 8 1104 Touring dropped the gavel at an impressive $231,000.

The day began with an elegant champagne breakfast where bidders and consigners feasted on everything from Rolls-Royces to Lamborghinis. The energy and excitement in the tent during the auction was contagious, as enthusiastic attendees from around the world anticipated their moment to bid in a standing-room only crowd of bidders. The impressive results of the auction established and insured Gooding & Company’s continued presence at the 2009 Scottsdale Auction Week.
