Carlisle Auctions Adds Sizzle to Its Schedule via the Summer Sale

Inaugural Event Draws 200+ Cars, Hundreds of Bidders and Millions in Sales
Wednesday, June 20, 2018

Carlisle Auctions kicked off summer just a few days early with its first-ever Summer Sale. On Saturday, June 16, Carlisle Auctions held its third auction of the year and first standalone event at the Carlisle Expo Center. The decision to do so was a success with 200+ consignments spanning automotive history, a new product showcase via a trio of local dealerships, food trucks and more! It all took place under sunny skies and showcased the best of the best within the collector car world.

As part of the multi-hour affair, hundreds of bidders came out to the Expo Center ready to bid/buy with even more looking on as spectators eager to simply enjoy the day. With over 200 available consignments, the turnout of the first ever Summer Sale was impeccable, and Carlisle Auctions is looking forward to more events in the future. Carlisle Auctions is more than happy with the outcome and as such, is pleased to share the top three selling cars as well as overall auction results. The top three amassed $251,610 and were led by a gem of a ’57 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible.

1) 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible - $120,000 2) 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo - $72,760 3) 1968 Chevelle SS - $58,850
