RM | AUCTIONS
RM Auctions continued its strong track record in Michigan with a highly successful single-day sale at the Inn at St. John's, July 27th, in Plymouth. The auction in America's automotive heartland lifted the gavel on a total of 77 automobiles, two boats, and one motorcycle, generating more than $7.7 million in sales with a strong 90 percent of all lots sold.
Top honors for the sale, held in conjunction with the famed Concours d'Elegance of America at St. John's along with the 2013 Automotive Hall of Fame Induction & Awards Ceremony, went to a 1929 Duesenberg Model J Dual-Cowl Phaeton, garnering $682,000. The concours-quality Duesenberg led a top-selling roster of American classics that crossed the auction podium, including a pair of Packards—a 1932 Packard Individual Custom Eight Convertible Victoria and a 1932 Packard Twin Six Sport Phaeton—coming in second and third place and achieving $374,000 and $330,000, respectively.
