10TH ANNUAL COLLECTOR CARS OF FORT LAUDERDALE WRAPS UP WEEKEND WITH EVENT RECORD FOR NUMBER OF CARS OFFERED
Auctions America by RM celebrated the 10th anniversary of its Collector Cars of Fort Lauderdale auction by selling more than $17 million worth of pre-war classics, exotics, hot rods, muscle cars, and memorabilia during a four-day event. With an increased number of consignors, bidders, and attendees this year, the Fort Lauderdale event produced an impressive 72 percent sell-through rate. Thousands flocked to the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center from 15–18 March to see 553 incredible automobiles plus memorabilia, including 26 well-restored Corvettes from the Tony Parella Collection.

The top seller of the Fort Lauderdale auction was a stunning 1933 Chrysler CL Phaeton that sold for $341,000. Offered on Saturday at no reserve, it is one of only 36 Phaetons built from Chrysler's top-of-the-line CL series. In addition, the sale also featured a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6 that garnered $198,000 and is believed to be the only red-and-black 1970 LS6 convertible ever built. The Chevelle included the original build sheet, Protect-O-Plate, and owner's manual.
