Sam Pack Collection
RM Auctions, together with Auctions America, reaffirmed its position as the industry leader in private automotive collection sales, generating an impressive $11,543,400 in sales with 100 percent of lots sold at its Sam Pack Five Star Collection sale in Dallas, Texas.
The result of more than a decade of dedicated acquisition by respected businessman Sam Pack, the Collection presented a broad range of ownership opportunities for enthusiasts. From a terrific series of Fifties and Sixties icons, through to a remarkable collection of Detroit muscle, and a superb series of concepts, customs, and modern collectibles, the offering was marked by incredible diversity and quality. In total, Saturday's sale lifted the gavel on 131 vehicles before a packed house. Impressively, bidders represented eight countries from around the world and 36 states across the U.S.
Headlining the sale and the subject of one of many lively bidding contests was an iconic 1967 Shelby 427 Cobra. A part of the collection since 2008, the iconic American sports car achieved seven figures, selling for a strong $1,292,500.
"When I made the decision to pare down my collection, a lot of people asked me who I was going to use. Without hesitation, I said RM Auctions/Auctions America. In my opinion, they are the best in the business," said Sam Pack. "I chose them based on years of respect and trust—and a relationship built on interacting with them as both a buyer and a seller. From their organization and process to their follow-through and execution, the level of service they provide is unmatched. They are incredibly client focused, and the fact that this weekend's sale represented their 30th private collection in 35 years of business speaks volumes."
