RM | AUCTIONS
Held as part of Carlisle Events' renowned Fall Carlisle Collector Car Weekend, the two-day auction presented approximately 300 automobiles joined by a selection of motorcycles and memorabilia before a packed house. Attracting strong interest from the global collector community, bidders hailed from seven countries around the world. On a national level, bidders traveled from 29 states across the U.S.
Top sales honors went to a beautifully restored 1958 Chrysler 300D Convertible, one of less than 20 of its kind known to exist, which spurred a lively bidding war in the room, selling for a strong $90,750. Also attracting significant interest was a 1965 Chevrolet Corvette, resplendent in Nassau Blue with a white and blue interior, which brought $81,400.
In addition, the sale lifted the gavel on a 1985 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe which sold for $11,000 to benefit the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation, an organization dedicated to supporting research and raising awareness of the deadly disease Amyloidosis. The successful bidder graciously donated the car back after purchasing to provide opportunity to raise additional funds for this deserving cause at the company's Spring Carlisle auction in April 2013.
