RM | AUCTIONS
Auctions America achieved one of its best spring sales results at Auburn Spring, generating nearly $10.2 million in total sales at the historic Auburn Auction Park. Led by the former Level 5 Motorsports Collection, offered entirely without reserve, the three-day sale saw nearly 350 vehicles and 450 lots of automobilia cross the podium, with 83 percent finding new homes. Bidders at Auburn Spring hailed from 38 states and 11 countries, with more than one-third representing first-time Auctions America clientele.
The success of the former Level 5 Motorsports Collection is the perfect case study for the power of 'no reserve' and represented a niche segment of the market that brought a whole new crowd to the Classic Car Capital of America. Outside of the collection, we assembled a high-quality group of cars, which translated to strong results across the board and specifically in the $100,000–$200,000 range throughout the event.
Beyond the Collection on Thursday, Auburn Spring also hit the mark across several segments of the market, with quality examples for every enthusiast. The AACA and CCCA National Prize-winning 1941 Packard One-Eighty Darrin Convertible Victoria brought a strong $360,000, while the above-estimate $220,000 achieved for a highly original 1968 Shelby GT 500KR Fastback demonstrates Auctions America's expertise in the market for high-performance Shelbys and Fords.
