Iconic 1979 Chevrolet ‘A-Team’ Van to Sell for Charity through WorldWide Auctioneers in January


Auburn, IN, December 2020 – Fans of NBC’s action-packed ‘80’s television series, The A-Team, will remember the show’s unique van, a less than low-key black and metallic grey vehicle with red stripes that was to become a pop culture icon. Starring Mr. T, the series featured former members of United States Army Special Forces unit who fled military prison where they were court-martialed "for a crime they didn't commit,” working as soldiers of fortune on the run with their distinctive A-Team van.

Worldwide Auctioneers has confirmed that it will sell a rare 1979 Chevrolet ‘A-Team’ Van at its January Scottsdale Auction in Auburn, one of only six vans officially licensed by Universal Studios to Hollywood Productions Inc. to promote the series throughout the U.S. and Canada from 1983 to 1987. The van will sell without reserve at the Scottsdale Auction on Saturday, January 23rd, with proceeds benefiting the

 J. Kruse Education Center, a dedicated 501(c)(3) organization providing career pathway development to students and transitioning veterans.

“Instantly recognizable as one of TV’s most iconic vehicles, this is a highly entertaining promotional and exhibition vehicle that would be welcome at shows and events everywhere,” said John Kruse, Principal and Auctioneer. “We’re excited to be selling it without reserve at home here in Auburn, along with four additional classics, to benefit such an inspiring national cause.”

Worldwide Auctioneers confirmed earlier this month that its annual Scottsdale Auction will be staged as a live and digital event at home in Indiana, rather than at the usual Arizona venue, to better serve its customers amid ongoing health and safety concerns. The boutique sale is now scheduled for Saturday, January 23rd at 1pm local time at the company’s expansive Auburn headquarters, with a hand-selected offering of prewar automobiles, classics, sports, exotics and select American muscle slated to cross the block, and 80% of consignments offered without reserve.

A dedicated implementation specialist will again be directing all event and campus COVID-19 safety protocols, with bidding options to suit all comfort levels. Online bidding will be available, and also absentee and telephone bidding to pre-registered, qualified buyers.
